Since you don't have any creatures with a CMC, lower than 4, I would recommend adding some to give yourself some earlier board presence. Fiend Hunter , Geist of Saint Traft , and Silverblade Paladin are some good choices.

Perhaps adding Wall of Tanglecord in lieu of your Fling s would be helpful as an aggro deck could likely do some unseemly amounts of damage before you can land more than one or two creatures considering that your cheapest is still 3CMC. Just my two cents, good luck with the deck!

Yeah your right, ill add him sideboard to replace fling. thanks!

Blade Splicer would also help a lot in the early game and goes well with the blinking idea

Blade Splicer is a great addition to the deck, I hope this gets me some early board defense!! Thanks for your help :)

New deck is way sicker. Thragtusk is like a medium rare saltgrass steak. I like the Zealous Conscript + Cloudshift combo, as well as the Fiend Hunter + Cloudshift double exile. Looks good +1

revoke existence in sideboard for torpor orb, or wurmcoil engine, etc.
June 27, 2012 7:57 a.m.
Yeah, Rancor is a great card. I had put it in before, and decided i was gonna board it in and out with Swiftfoot Boots . Depending on the deck i was playing. I just forgot to put it in there. Thanks for the comment! :)

Huntmaster of the Fells Flip is very inticing, he's just so expensive (Money wise) and this deck is on a budget. But once i start playing competitive again, he will be the first one in. Thanks for your comment.
June 29, 2012 6:28 p.m.
Yeah. He's pricey, but only because he's such a ridiculous creature. My friend has a Naya-colored Flicker deck with Acidic Slime , Huntmaster of the Fells Flip , and Restoration Angel , among other things. After seeing it in action, I can safely say that it's a very underrated strategy right now.
June 29, 2012 6:33 p.m.
Yeah, he's a beast, i just can't afford him right now.
June 29, 2012 7:09 p.m.
ya but i really dont see boros shining till gatecrash thats the set i be spending the most money on plus sinker

Rude, How you would taint my comment section with Hellion Crucible .
July 18, 2012 11:50 p.m.
You could argue that it's better than a Mountain, but that's just not true. Mountain s tap for Red mana.
July 19, 2012 1:04 a.m.
And with Hellion Crucible , you're spending 9 mana and losing a land to get a 4/4 Haste token. Whoop-dee-doo.
July 19, 2012 1:05 a.m.
Oh well. I guess Hellion Crucible is only awesome in my imagination.

In order to win the game without setting off Slumbering Dragon 's ability to block, you would have to deal 5damage per turn, if Intrepid Hero is down than he is going to destry all creatures who can do at least 4 damage per turn, For this example lets say that there are no other abilities in play
July 25, 2012 4:19 a.m.
Huh well I guess that works. Feels like a weak argument though. Don't get me wrong, they're both good cards, just seems weird to say they work well together. Would still consider Ring of Valkas though, at least in the sideboard since you have room. Allows you to pump dragons, give haste, and helps against control since they won't be attacking much and your dragons won't gain counters.

Intrepid Hero ? Really?
Most decks don't even play with creatures that have Power 4 or higher. That, and he dies to every single removal spell in Standard.
I'd just run card:Gideon's Avenger over him, honestly, if creature control is what you want. Or Fiend Hunter , but Fiend Hunter is better for Aggro decks that will likely win before the Hunter will be destroyed. In a slower control deck, Fiend Hunter will almost always be destroyed by turn-5, especially since you have no way of protecting him.
Have you considered Cavern of Souls ? Naming Humans on one covers half of your creatures, or naming Giants might just win you the game.

Also, consider Elspeth Tirel . If given a few turns to do her thing, she can win the game on her own.
