Temur Battle Rage Discussion

Temur Battle Rage and Genju of the Spires Hi all, I'm building a modern red deck around Genju of the Spires and Temur Battle Rage, I am including a lot of 4 Power cards for ferocious and open to splashing other colors such as green for Rhonas the Indomitable. I feel this combo could be very powerful in the right shell such as Kiln Fiend or with Vexing Devil because it is 12 power in a burn deck, and since Genju returns to your hand, it is a persistent threat. What cards would you suggest?

This was the first modern deck I ever built, so I have some suggestions
as you probably already know, the way to win with this deck is to get to 20 damage or ten infect counters. This means you have some thresholds to meet. The following suggestions will help you meet those thresholds in the most efficient way possible.
Section 1) Creatures
1: although Guttersnipe and Delver of Secrets Flip are strong choices, there are better alternatives. I would suggest taking them out, especially since neither of them are auto-buffed by your spells like kiln fiend.
2: Monastery Swiftspear is one of the better cards in a kiln fiend deck, as it is auto buffed by your spells and has haste. You can sometimes get a turn 2 kill with swiftspear, something that doesn’t happen with guttersnipe or delver. I would reccomend four of them.
4: Elusive Spellfist is a great card depending on the meta. Currently, with very board heavy decks like humans at the top of the meta, this is a strong choice.
Section 2: Spells
2: Mutagenic Growth is your best buff spell, growing kiln fiend by 5 and monastery swiftspear by 3 for zero mana. This + assault strobe + Tainted Strike on kiln fiend is a win. Two of these + assault strobe or two of them + Tainted Strike on kiln fiend is a win. Three of them + assault strobe or three of them + Tainted Strike on monastery swiftspear is a win, which is possible on turn 2. This is the best card to help you reach your damage threshold.
4: Because of the damage it gives you for the efficiency in mana, I would have four Assault Strobe and only two Temur Battle Rages. This is because it will accelerate your win by one turn, allowing you to beat out decks like storm or bubble hulk.
5: Manamorphose is surprisingly good in this deck. It grows kiln fiend by three and monastery swiftspear by one, while fixing your mana and replacing itself in your hand. This essentially means you have a 56 card deck, giving you more consistency in drawing into a threat or a win condition.
6: Blossoming Defense is a great card, saving your creatures at instant speed and buffing them. However, I would add two more Apostle's Blessing instead of this if possible, because it potentially makes your creature unblockable.
Section 3) Lands
Obviously much of what I have recommended doesn’t fit with your manabase. These are some budget and nonbudget options for your lands.
1: I wouldn’t reccomend this, but if you want to be a complete troll, put in Gemstone Caverns. This allows you to kill someone on your first turn, because monastery swiftspear has haste and Mutagenic Growth is zero mana, meaning you only need one mana to play Tainted Strike or Assault Strobe after three mutagenics.
2: Gemstone Mine is a good choice, as the downside won’t matter because you will probably kill them turn 3.
5: fastlands (Botanical Sanctum, Copperline Gorge etc.) are also good in budget, as the downside won’t matter because of the speed of your deck. Also, you can run these with Immolating Souleater because they don’t ping your life total
Well i hope that helped but I’m fine if it didn’t

I would cut Risk Factor since it can cause you to brick mid chain. I would also consider dropping Manamorphose even though it cantrips, it's not offering anything beyond an additional Steam Kin trigger.
If you need more space I would start to take away from Fiery Temper.

Yeah, Demon of Death's Gate if just not Salvage Titan - as it LACKS the support, and wizard current policies make it unlikely that 0 costed black creature(s) will be ever printed. (There was a semi viable dek centered around dropping an early salvage titan then giving it Temur Battle Rage - supported by the "implement" cycle of artifacts that got printed in kaladesh block)
I would say bridgevine is not dredge (and Bridge from Below does a lot better there than in dredge) - just like how living end decks are not dredge. - But i am probably just being a grammar nazi...
Mashing together a group of nice looking 5(+) drops is not a way to build even remotely viable decks in modern. Despite, what most people say SOME five drops can be playable despite their cost (as most removal either doesn't hit them, or helps you getting them out faster.
Sorry for being that guy, but the idea described by the OP is simply not feasible in modern.

Ok, some cards that will really help.
If you want a red 2 drop that pumps your creatures permanently, Curse of Stalked Prey is great.
The traditional efficient double strike tools are Assault Strobe and Temur Battle Rage, with dipping into R/W for Boros Charm, which means that double strike on creatures themselves will always be a good pick for budget lists.
In mono red, I'd look to support a more 'go wide' creatures strat with some permanent buffs and haste (Expedite/Crimson Wisps) with a sideboard designed to remove answers (plans for Ensnaring Bridge, Ghostly Prison, tanky creatures.)

Well, first off, let me make the disclaimer that I am an amateur deck builder and have a lot to learn myself when it comes to building decks. But I can spot quite a few issues with the deck, both from looking it over and playtesting it, and honestly, I don't know if the deck can be made to unsuck without completely revamping it or building a new deck. But I'll give it a shot and offer some advice.
First off, I don't know why Armageddon is in there; it doesn't seem to offer any advantage to the deck, and the deck doesn't have any way to build back its own land base more quickly than an average opponent could manage to do. Second, Iroas, God of Victory is fine, if you want to have that in the deck, but there are cards that work against it. The enchantment is nice, but you're not utilizing it to its fullest potential if it's not a creature, which requires devotion, which other cards in this deck work against. Vedalken Orrery, for example, I don't see why the deck needs that; it already has many cards with Flash, and none of the others I can see a need for being able to cast at instant speed. It also doesn't contribute to devotion or field presence. Dust Elemental as well, works against devotion by returning three of your creatures back to your hand, removing both devotion and field presence. And this deck struggles already with acquiring and maintaining field presence. I'd remove both of those cards and look for other white or red cards that pack a little more punch offensively, or noncreature spells that grant trample + power boost, or double strike.
The land base is too large. You have no cards in this deck that cost over 4, and even in a normal deck 26 lands is too much, and there's absolutely no way in this deck to thin those lands out of the deck. You need some major deck thinning (land fetch), or just cut the amount of lands down. I'd say anywhere from 20-22 lands would be fine, and replace a few of the basics with maybe 2 - 4 Evolving Wilds, an inexpensive way to thin the deck a bit. Also, look at your one drop creatures: Anointer of Champions and Boros Recruit. Those are both white creatures, and your only cheap drop creatures, but Sulfur Elemental will immediately destroy both if it ever hits the field, unless you plan on using Anointer of Champions to bolster Boros Recruit until end of turn, and plan on losing the Elemental. But you still also lose the Champion in that.
I would say pull some lands out, bring it down to 20-22, add some spells and creatures in to replace those extra lands, and some of the cards that just don't synergize well in the deck, some cheap white or red creatures with haste, maybe a few more powerful creatures at CMC 4, if need be. You could even replace Balduvian Rage with some cards that might be better suited to an early game offensive, with effects like haste and trample. Some good ones I found on a cursory search are Crash Through if you really need Balduvian's draw, or Brute Strength, Built to Smash, Invigorated Rampage, Ride Down, Run Amok, Rush of Adrenaline and Temur Battle Rage are all fairly inexpensive (both in terms of CMC and market price on the cards) spells that will give your creatures a boost, destroy blocking creatures (with regard to Ride Down), and give trample.
Not trying to be mean, just trying my best, despite my admitted inexperience, to offer constructive criticism.

Hello Hard-R-Rikka. I like the idea of Temur Battle Rage by I think that assault strobe is better because of the cheaper mana cost as this can go off on turn 2. I might consider it but I will need to playtest first!

I just found your deck and looking through it, it seems very fun. However,there is one card that you definitely should consider adding, Temur Battle Rage. Not only would it give your coily bois trample but also double-strike to increase the damage, and from what i can see, you are able to cast more then three spells a turn to pump him. Very fun deck, I like it.
