Kickass101, see above for the reasons why I don't run Boros Reckoner . I don't rely on having Mogis, God of Slaughter be a creature at all, since most of the time by that point I would already have the game in the bag.
cshobbykobby, I have not had enough testing against RG monsters yet to know for sure how my matchup against it is. Although, I did design my sideboard to have a good fighting chance against it.
+2 Doom Blade
is what I would consider doing, but like I said I haven't practiced much sideboarding against it yet since I haven't had a chance to play against one.
I can't help you much with a format that I'm not familiar with so I will only be able to give you individual card advice as opposed to the deck as a whole.
Apart from some of the key cards that you should be running (but you don't own yet, like Obzedat, Ghost Council , Elspeth, Sun's Champion , and Hero's Downfall ), there are a few other cards you may want to consider in the BWR color:
Angel of Serenity - This card seems like a beast in the format where removals are few and far between and less consistent overall. She either removes something of theirs or fetches your own stuff to be played later. I'd replace Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts with this in a heartbeat.
Flame-Wreathed Phoenix seems alright on paper, but not in the current meta where giving your opponent a choice is just about the worst thing you can possibly do especially in a control matchup where he can go "sure you can have a 5/5 so I have time to deal with him on my turn or when you declare attackers on your next turn".
Underworld Cerberus is a great creature to run especially in decks like these. You already run so many creatures of your own that you shouldn't feel like his ability is too much of a drawback. He's a fast clock that has to be dealt with and there are multiple ways to work around his abilities. Just remember that his ability also prevents reanimating with Whip of Erebos so be careful.
Crypt Incursion - What happens in a format where there seems to be a bunch of creatures? I have a feeling that graveyards would be nice and live more times than not (I assume that Scavenging Ooze seems powerful here) and this allows you to gain a ton of life at instant speed and also synergizes with the above card.
Obzedat's Aid is another card that seems good here. Reanimation in a singleton format seems powerful.
Ashen Rider - Have you seen this guy?!
Fated Conflagration is another noteworthy card. Kills pretty much anything including planeswalkers at instant or sorcery speed.
That's all I got for now.
I cut him for a few reasons:
The only decks he's currently good against are aggro, green devotion, and monsters decks, the last of which can easily get around him.
The meta is currently filled with black devotion and control decks, which don't much care for his abilities.
He wasn't pulling enough weight due to above reasons and was being sided out almost all the time.
His mana cost prevents me from running the rest of the creatures and spells reliably (having to pull off a combination of RW while still being able to reliably hit double black is challenging).
Since I no longer run a full set of Anger of the Gods , his synergy with the spell is reduced.
Long story short, he just isn't as great as he was before in my current meta.
My FNM top 8 deck that's undefeated so far! The Top 8 tab was removed so I am coming here to help it get some more exposure since that's how my other top 8 decks became successful! It's all about objective criticisms and second opinions!
