Can y'all recommend cards to me that are 'new' in the lack of having them in the current recommmendations for burn decks as they are shown in competitive form as usual? Kinda like how I have Satyr Firedancer, which is a card that is really useful but yet not in the common competitive decks? Plus, it's awesome that Satyr Firedancer is in my deck, lore-wise, as it shows on Eidolon of the Great Revel that it has satyrs dancing, haha.

Hmmm. wallisface there isn't a way I can make it any faster, haha! Even if I cut down to 60 and keep all of the fastest burn spells, it will still be the same speed as what I have now. Roiling Vortex isn only 1 life per turn. Most lifegain decks are gaining more than at least 1 life per turn. I have a problem because one of the decks I played against uses 10 life gain on a creature with flicker. Every time he flickers it, he gains 10 life. The only response was to kill the creature, which I might or might not be able to depending upon my card draw. My deck is very slightly different from the competitive, with the only thing missing is Monastery Swiftspear, or Goblin Guide, and possibly not having Eidolon of the Great Revel. The problem with the meta in tournaments is that everyone is expecting a certain deck to have certain cards in it. Then, they try to optimize their decks based on that. Nothing new happens until someone new comes along with a new deck type, and then that becomes competitive based on how well it performs. You can't just say 'this is competitive because it's been used a million times'.

Disclaimer: I'm still really bad at evaluating cards before seeing them in action.

I'm going to say it won't work at a full competitive level. You're spending three mana to make your opponent lose three life, which is pretty slow. You're also giving up one of your creatures, which can potentially deal more than three damage if it stays, like Monastery Swiftspear or Eidolon of the Great Revel. Pingers don't show up in burn too much anymore; you might see a sideboard Grim Lavamancer once in a while, but that's it. The card draw and life gain are nice, but the goal of burn is to deal as much damage as possible as quickly as possible, and 3-for-3 isn't enough.

Modern's gotten fast and hard over the last few years. Burn decks, and aggro decks in general, need to be the fastest and hardest of all to stay competitive, and the classic Boros Burn is slipping down the ranks, falling behind combo and "value" decks like Izzet Murktide and Crashing Footfalls.


That being said, it looks like a good centerpiece for a tempo-control deck. It might not be high-end tournament level, but I can see this card winning FNM matches. And, of course, it won't hurt to brew up a burn deck and try it out, just to see what happens.

Wow just realized Eidolon of the Great Revel is $3 now lol. Since it’s now a budget card, that needs to be in there.

I've been brewing this same concept along with mono green enchantment control the past few weeks. I really like what you have going here!

Goblin Chainwhirler and Syr Carah, the Bold seem out of place. Eidolon of the Great Revel and Forgeborn Oreads would be upgrades.

Risky Move and Confusion in the Ranks this janky combo finally has a home.

Grip of Chaos for more chaos.

No Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle???

Flame Fusillade is super secret tech!

that_dude33, thanks for the feedback. Dropping Lightning Helix in favor of Eidolon of the Great Revel sounds like a pretty good idea for stacking even more damage. I am hard pressed against going down to 18 lands because of the number of two drops and the risk of droughts. Nonetheless, I will implement your recommendations on paper and see what happens. One thing I noticed with MTG online and Tappedout is the shuffles, draws and mana curve often times do not align with real-world paper decks. I tend to favor more lands over less as there's nothing worse than an aggro deck loosing its steam because of a drought. Flooding is bit easier to prevent with fetch and draw lands but at the cost of a more expensive less budget friendly deck.

2 Eidolon of the Great Revel maybe take out the 2 Rugged Praries. Eidolon is great passive damage that gives you the extra boost to get to 20 damage as quick as possible.

Icbrgr on Sideboarding Silence in Burn

@plakjekaas I think Roiling Vortex has outright become a mainboard card in burn. Eidolon of the Great Revel seems to be being pushed out altogether due to the rise of popularity of answers to it without punishment i.e. Leyline Binding/Fury/Solitude.
