Boros Tempo (Budget)

Modern* Budget




A budget deck that I am brewing. The point is to be efficient enough with your early creatures and either win the game through aggro or start gaining advantage with the larger beaters. With lots of indestructability effects the deck is very resillient to board wipes and in a pinch the Boros Reckoner + Blasphemous Act combo can decimate an unprepared opponent.

You should probably cut "Assemble the Legion" it won't do enough for you and has cmc 5. While indestructible will protect you from damage effects it doesn't help against -n/-n spells or counters. You probably want some extra removal or disruption outside of "Lightning Helix" and "Blasphemous Act"

Rift Bolt is budget friendly, Deflecting Palm and Searing Blood are worth considering. Spark Trooper and Tuktuk the Explorer are fun, though what you probably need is more 1 drops, maybe Grim Lavamancer...

Thank you for your suggestions. Deflecting Palm is more of a sideboard card. As far as removal is concerned, I was thinking about Chained to the Rocks. For 1-drops, maybe Student of Warfare, Doomed Traveler or Judge's Familiar.

Student of Warfare is a less efficient Figure of Destiny, but it suffers the same issue of being a mana investment that is easily removed when you could be casting more relevant cards. Doomed Traveler replaces itself so has an upside, I like it for this deck. Only other 1 drop creature that could fit is Vexing Devil, normally giving your opponent the choice isn't a great play, however the card is cheap for either effect...

Chained to the Rocks is a nice card but it has a couple of flaws, first it encourages your opponent to destroy your land, second enchantment removal is either in most sideboards or main-decked. To my mind you'd be better running Journey to Nowhere.

This deck NEEDS Lightning Bolt, it is just an absurd magic card, it can either kill a medium sized creature, or go to the face for the last few points of damage. Also, I think that a playset or so of Path to Exile would be money well spent, as it is just one of the best removal spells in modern, and it will kill anything for just one mana.

i love boros and mardu colors. deck looks good, maybe focus on creatures and other spells that go with the theme your working with. you can take a look at my boros deck if you want http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/23-02-17-the-boros-battalion/. i would replace the Temple of Triumph with Battlefield Forge and replace Ajani Vengeant with Ajani Goldmane. its -1 is very good. i would also look into Akroan Hoplite it is consistently my biggest damage dealer.

Gisela is a fun card. She rocks in Commander. She is just to slow for Modern in my opinion without some way to cheat her in. Speaking of cheating you might want some recursion. Return to the Ranks would be a good 1 of for mainboard or side in against removal heavy decks. You need more tokens to make front line medic work well. Spectral Procession perhaps or something like Precinct Captain, or Dragon Fodder. Soulfire Grand Master is a sweeeet combat trick with Blasphemous Act. Just laugh at your opponent as you gain an insane amount of life. So add one when you can afford it. Latter upgrades. Chandra, Torch of Defiance & Nahiri, the Harbinger are both direct upgrades to Monastery Siege I would add one of each for utility & flavor. Tajic, Blade of the Legion survives your Blasphemous Act he might he a fun 1 of. That's my 2 cents worth. Cool looking deck. Best of luck.
