Sunscorch Regent Discussion

Welcome everyone! You are all a testament to the amazing community we have her on TappedOut. I called for help, you all answered. My cup overfloweth.
MegaMatt13 - Thanks for the comment! Yeah I think I will be putting more plains in. That will also help if I decide I want Emeria Shepherd as well. Nim Deathmantle is great but the mana ramp required just seems to expensive to for me atm, so I'm straying away from it for now. Molten Primordial may be a good finisher and yeah, Sun Titan is going in. I'm at least putting Gratuitous Violence in soon, not sure I like the double edged sword of the others. I stay away from them because of my brother's Zurgo Helmsmasher deck. And I like the tucking/exiling board wipes because of my friend's sliver deck. Thanks again!
jwe94 - Double dipping commenting ;) Thanks! I like Flayer of the Hatebound. The rest don't really seem worth it. Stalking Vengeance used to be in here but I found it's too slow/costs too much. Thanks again!
Oloro_Magic - Thanks for stopping by! Bonehoard looks neat and Moltensteel Dragon could be great as I'll usually have a lot of life. I'll try em out! the rest are either too expensive(looking at you, Chandra), or just don't seem like the best fit. Appreciate you commenting!
zandl - I like all those lands, I'll add them in eventually. Sun Titan is going in. Universal damage doublers are too risky with my brother's Zurgo Helmsmasher deck. Gratuitous Violence will find a place though. Thanks a lot!
TheHamster - Hi again! Just figured you'd like to see the progress! You were my first commenter hahaha! I'm pretty happy with what it's become. Thanks!
landofMordor - Thanks for the comment friend! I have Insult / Injury and will be adding Gratuitous Violence. The others are too risky. Heartless Hidetsugu may work... I'll think about him. I like the Ball Lightning cards too much. It's the main gimmick of the deck so I won't be giving them up haha! Checked out you deck; very nice! Thanks again for stopping by!
Daedalus19876 - Thanks for all the advice! I've actually already seen and upvoted your Judgement Day haha! Gratuitous Violence is going in. Felidar Sovereign will be leaving me soon so I won't add ToE for the same reason he's leaving. Crumbling Colossus will be cut soon-Iroas, God of Victory you think? I've kept Kor Cartographer in the sideboard for that very reason. He'll probably find his way back in. Yes I've been needing more removal and those are all good options. Enlightened Tutor may find a place even with Sunforger possibly being cut. I also think you're right about the 2 cost mana rocks... good advice. All those card draw options are amazing but very expensive. Will keep them in mind but for now I'll find cheaper alternatives. Thank you a thousand times my friend!
clayperce - Appreciate it man! I've never had an issue with Temple of the False God. Works fine for me. Taurean Mauler doesn't work because of my friend's Sliver Overlord, but Sunscorch Regent is nice. Also adds life gain! Other people's treason effects aren't an issue. Never have enough pre-combat mana for Rogue's Passage. I'll consider Chandra. Thanks a lot!
Again, just want to thank you all for the kind words and advice! I've got a lot to think about!

This looks really fun; big +1 from me!
With all the usual caveats (I have no idea what your meta is like, I've never actualy played your deck so I'm just theorycrafting here, etc), here are a few thoughts:
- I know lots of people swear by it, but I've never been a big fan of Temple of the False God. It's kind of underwhelming early (IMO) and I never really miss it late.
- I'm not sure the deck wants another 7-drop at all, but Stalking Vengeance in a sac' heavy deck can be pretty bonkers.
- In EDH, I always make it a point to look at any spells with "Whenever an opponent casts a spell ...". For this deck, Taurean Mauler and Sunscorch Regent may be worth looking at.
- It's totally a meta call, but if (other people's) Treason effects are an issue in your meta, you may want Homeward Path. I'm a big fan of Rogue's Passage as well, if your manabase can support it.
- Chandra, Flamecaller?

Yeah I hear you, I am working on a hyper competitive version of Aurelia and the RRR is real tough. Duelist heritage is a great card, I use it in all of my white decks. With Gisela in play, manabarbs does 2 to your oppoonents and I believe 0 to you, its been a while since ive played it. Price of progress is very good on its own. I killed a player with it in a Neheb deck the other day, and that was with no damage doubling, so with Gisela out late in a game you'll be hitting huge amounts of damage.
I probably wouldn't run Eidolon. Its ok early, but late in the game I don't think it will do much. Crescendo of War is a real interesting card also, but it can back fire once in a while. Sunscorch Regent is also very good, worth checking out.
As far as cuts to make. How has Boros Reckoner performed? I could see it being decent, but I could also see it getting lost in a clogged board state. Ive always found Anya, Merciless Angel to be really underwhelming. How has Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas performed, I could see that being a reasonable cut also.

Sunscorch Regent is better than you think it would be.
EDIT: never mind.... overlooked it in your list

This deck seems sweet! I really like the Sundial of the Infinite use to get around having to sac creatures on your end step.
It seems like your build revolves pretty heavily around Brion so I would consider maybe adding another card or two to your protection package. Whispersilk Cloak, and Gift of Immortality are a few cheap ways to keep your commander alive and flinging. Hoarding Dragon could also help you with either tutoring out one of these effects or any other artifact you might need situationaly.
Card draw is obviously a hard thing to keep consistent in Boros but Avarice Amulet could be another budget option that offers consistent card draw, gives Brion a small damage increase which will also gain you more life, and gives vigilance which means you can swing with Brion for 6 with lifelink and still fling something after. The downside of, "When equipped creature dies, target opponent gains control of Avarice Amulet" will never actually matter if you equip it to Brion because since you'll be putting him back in the command zone he never actually dies
My final recommendation is Chandra's Ignition. This card is completely ridiculous with Brion Stoutarm because if you use it on him your opponents and all other creatures on the field all take 4 damage and since Brion Stoutarm is dealing the damage and he has lifelink you also gain 4 life for every player and creature hit. If you're in a 4 person commander game and there are only 6 other creatures on the field across all players you would gain 40 life!
All in all this deck is awesome and I really appreciate you checking out my primer, +1 from me!

Sunscorch Regent doesn't drain, but it is a big beater that gains life.
