Hey thanks for adding my deck to a folder of yours. As a heads up, it's about to go through a change. I'm updating the list to remove the white and go more control. If you have any input on it, let me know. Thanks!

I agree with the guy above me: that card might be important for making sure you keep your win-conditions out of you hand. Also maybe drop one colossus, maybe consider world-spine wurm?

Interesting... I'm a fan of polymorph decks, but I've never seen morphed anew. I like how you use it, but I feel like the investigate spells aren't all that great and you don't have enough of them for them to be worthwhile. Maybe look at other investigate options? Also, maybe add some more win-conditions (like anthems, or consider splashing black for lingering souls/bitterblossom, thoughtseizes etc.) in case your polymorph/ morphed anew gets extracted, etc. Just a thought :P

Hey! I see that update... I never even knew essence warden existed! Seems to be coming along... I noticed you got rid of mainboard mercy killing. It costs three mana which sucks, but keep in mind that the whole deck is built around getting bonuses from giving your opponents creatures, and forbidden orchard/ hunted phantasm might not be enough for it to be worthwhile. Also, remember that blood artist is only really good if you can actually kill your opponent's tokens... I've been working on some other projects recently, but hey, I might take another go at this list :P

Yeah... that's why decks like these are really cool, but not viable at all xD or at least, 88.3% of the time ;) anyway, keep up the good work!

January 9, 2017 6:57 p.m.

No problem man! Hope all goes well. Also, I just love shambleshark; such a cool creature. Just really funny looking and that 2 mana simic casting cost is really satisfying.

January 9, 2017 6:53 p.m.

Ahh... WAIT, SO WHAT ARE THEY? THEY'RE JUST... WHAT?

No problem! It's looking very good... I also thought about a Nahiri / Emrakul(aeons) combo (Cause Nahiri's ult is very easy to get to cause you can protect her with your spells/reckoner, and have an emrakul turn 6) You'd only need one emrakul, cause if you accidentally get it in your hand you can discard it with nahiri. Only downside of nahiri compare to ajani, however, is her basic ability is much worse than ajani's. It's pretty expensive and idk how much extra money you want to spend. Check it out though, it'd be a very cool way to win.

Probably the best humans aggro deck I've seen... maybe forgo some of the kytheons or soldiers of pantheon to make room for raise the alarm? It's not as strong but it would give great procs for Champion and Lieutennant, while at the same time proccing abbot and swiftspear.

It's good that you mained the blasphemous act cause that combo can be game winning, and it's easy (ish) to pull off. However, testing might prove that blasphemous act is bad cause it's a dead card against low-creature decks and/or if you can't get it on a boros reckoner. Maybe 2 in the main and another 1 or 2 in the sideboard?

January 8, 2017 1:34 p.m.

Oh wait I forgot: I think relic is better than crypt because, although it costs 2 more mana, it can be used multiple times to exile individual cards (such as lingering souls, vengevine, amalgam, gravecrawler etc) without losing it. Also, it draws you a card which is huge if you think about it. It's never really a dead card, so for that reason I actually once mainboarded it in a modern aetherworks deck and it does pretty good (it's nice to surprise the enemy dredge player with a relic on the first game)

January 8, 2017 1:31 p.m.

Hmm... I think tormod's crypt would be great (it's also cheaper). About warleader's helix, I think it's pretty good just because it deals 4 damage. Alot of people (atleast me) build their decks keeping in mind that there are alot of 3 damage red spells in modern. Therefore, alot of more midrange decks might have creatures with toughness 4, so warleader's hits where lightning bolt and lightning helix miss. I like it.

January 8, 2017 1:25 p.m.

Hey man, that's really cool! I'm a fan of mono black so I'll check it out :) I like Geier Reach Sanitarium and Delirium Skeins to get rid of excess swamps and summoning, which is crucial if you want to attack with lupine prototype. Thank you so much for your comment!

January 8, 2017 1:06 p.m.

My recommendations: I would go up to 22 forests, and you have alot of power but no real way to use it, so I would recommend more ways to give your creatures trample. Other than that, I like the look of it! +1 from me

January 8, 2017 11:55 a.m.

One thing I can suggest is that maybe Searing meditation should go. The deck seems more than strong enough and I feel like it's just a dead card. I don't know what I would put as a replacement. Ajani's Pridemate is something that comes to mind. Or Maybe just a really solid card that doesn't necessarily go with the rest of the deck? A Gideon? Nahiri? Bonfire of the Damned? One card that I love that often goes overlooked is Harness by Force. It looks like it might be okay in your deck.

As for sideboard, you should look to cards that more directly counter the metagame as opposed to cards that already go in your deck. Keep the blasphemous act (or even mainboard it in place of searing meditation), keep the wear and tear, but maybe you should scrap brave the elements (cause you can already win with burn and your charms already protect some creatures) scrap the story circle (for the same reason; you already have lots of protection). I can't think off the top of my head what the staple boros sideboard cards are, but there's uh... Surgical Extraction, Grafdigger's Cage, Relic of Progenitus, Pithing Needle, Ethersworn Canonist, Stony Silence, Silence, etc. Unfortunately, modern staple sideboards are often expensive as you can see. I look forward to seeing how this deck evolves! I think it's really damn cool.

Come to think about it, the elixirs might be good for stall. I'll leave it to you for testing, but I'd even mainboard the flings as a 3-4 of for madcap skills, sideboard the bonfire, and maybe bring in a couple more ways to protect the crusher or even recur it from the graveyard. +1!

Could it maybe be low on actual early game tokens? Throw in a couple classic raise the alarms? Also, I noticed you said "fuck blue" BUTTT, you only have three creatures, so you could maybe consider dropping the bladeholds, throwing in one or two Emrakul Aeons, and running 4 polymorphs... I'm evil eheh.

January 8, 2017 12:08 a.m.

I've seen a couple decks with this idea, but this is by far the best. I love it. It combines aggro with control in a perfect way, you have strong creatures that synergize with boros charm, dawn charm, deflection, and the reckoner/blasphemous act combo. What are some decks it has trouble against? Tron maybe?

Very interesting lmao... I would maybe get rid of a few elixirs... if you're going to mill into them, you may as well only have one or two. You're probably even going to win before you need to use them, and they go right back into your library. Unlikely that someone's going to relic or prog or surgical extraction it. (you have 63 cards anyway... losing three of them will make it more likely to hit a crusader t1) I know it's not competitive but still, very funny.

January 7, 2017 11:39 p.m.

Very cool! I like it alot. Maybe get rid of Dryad militant and elvish visionary for Elusive Krasis, Thalia, or selfless spirit? And what about removal? I might eve consider building a budget version of this list by cutting white and going with cheaper lands... I gave it a thumbs up :)
