p.s.s.(off topic sorry)
"3) Control- Control decks in sixty card magic are built on trying to shut down almost everything an opponent is trying to do via counterspells and removal until you can work towards a win con. This obviously is not possible in commander where you can not shut down three other players with just counterspells and removal alone"

you should check out some Krark, the Thumbless / Sakashima of a Thousand Faces decks
they actually do counter and remove everything while winning with cards like Electrostatic Field

Maybe Grapeshot, it's another way to do damage without Monastery Swiftspear or Electrostatic Field on the battlefield

Haha, forneyt I finally succumbed to your strong and amazing wisdom (i'm not being sarcasti) and did the deck like you originally said I should, haha! Now it's a boros deck, added 4x Lava Spike, 3x Gideon's Sacrifice, 3x Monastery Mentor and 4x Soulfire Grand Master and 2x Rip Apart. Removed the counterspells; I used them barely, and they didn't help much at all but to counter one thing while I could cast two one MV burn cards; just a way to slow down my game. Galvanic Iteration is OK, i could use something like Doublecast if I really wanted to. Also, since my manabase is boros, it's MUCH faster now! I removed Electrostatic Field as it's either a chump blocker or a card that hardly helps my game. Eidolon of the Great Revel and Soulfire Grand Master pair perfectly, and I played a game with Eidolon of the Great Revel without grand master and ohhh man is it good. Even though I didn't have the best deck possible before, when I played, I got the opponent down to at most 7 health in two games before I lost, and I even won one game.

Removed Izzet Charm, Mana Leak and Slither Blade and Thing in the Ice  Flip and Electrostatic Field. Now I have a Boros manabase. Much better. Added the forthcoming Monastery Mentor, Soulfire Grand Master, and I think that Gideon's Sacrifice will be useful. Removed Shock and Lightning Strike. Replaced with 4x Lava Spike.

Hehe. Right now my deck on here is a direct representation of what cards I own, and what I think would be useful. I plan on getting 3x more Electrostatic Field today, but it might not come in the snail mail before my Friday Night Magic.

Many thanks, forneyt!

You don't think that I'll destroy myself with Eidolon of the Great Revel?! With 4x Guttersnipe and 4x Electrostatic Field I can really see myself winning quite fast with burn of low mana cost, or losing really fast as well, haha. How about Shock, and/or, what about Illusory Wrappings and/or Slither Blade and Lightning Strike? 4x Boros Reckoner is one of my favorite cards, and would be far more useful than Monastery Mentor, no? When I reach three mana, I want to have at least casted one or two, three at most, burn spells, and a Boros Reckoner is a good 3 mana for 3 or more damage, which I'm counting on my opponent to do more than, so I'd like to have it as a sort of hidden advantage, just as with my Deflecting Palm, which both I will use later in the game when I know they're pulling out their big ones if I cannot finish them off early. Nearly all of my burn cards will be used early in the game, of course, so these sorts of hidden gems will be useful; also, no matter what, the opponent will not want to speed up his/her death with Boros Reckoner, especially if they have a very powerful card. I think some draw cards would make this deck far more useful, as I'm at least 12/60 chance of drawing a nice burn card out of 4x Boros Charm, 4x Lightning Bolt, and 4x Lightning Helix. And Ionize is one of the best counter spells, which I'm wary of facing, besides Wizard's Retort and Counterspell, but I understand that it is a 3 drop for 1 counter and 2 damage; best to keep in sideboard, I guess. I think winning on at most turn 6 is what I'm aiming for, and I think with the Skullcrack and Eidolon of the Great Revel it will increase my advantage. Soulfire Grand Master is kinda what I plan on getting with the package of Eidolon of the Great Revel, but I'll try the latter without the former, first.

So here's what I've done: removed 3x Galvanic Iteration and added 3x Eidolon of the Great Revel; removed 2x Ionize and added 2x Shock; removed 1x Boros Reckoner and added 1x Lightning Strike. Perhaps this is much better?

I've decided to stay with Jeskai. Do I have too many burn cards? Perhaps cutting burn cards for bounce cards? I know that Boros Charm is indispensable for burn in player oriented damage, like using two of Shock for the same mana value. Removed Eidolon of the Great Revel and put Guttersnipe and Electrostatic Field.Afraid with Eidolon of the Great Revel I'll receive more damage than give with it. Replaced Soul-Scar Mage with Boros Reckoner. Boros Reckoner will make the opponent not want to attack, but also not having being blocked. Thing in the Ice  Flip will be incredibly useful before turn 6 or so. Lightning Bolt is of course one of the best burn cards in the game. Lightning Helix is good for lifegain. Ionize isn't that great of a counter card, but it's probably second best, as one of the only cards cheaper in MV is Counterspell. And, of course, Galvanic Iteration may be replaced by other cards, as it requires at least 3 mana before being posssible to use in conjunction, and also Opt could be prelaced... don't know what I would replace them with though.

Used to run things like Firebrand Archer, Electrostatic Field, Thermo-Alchemist, and Sentinel Tower, but they just didn't pull their weight. A newer inclusion, but in the same meh area sits Kessig Flamebreather

Guttersnipe is simply double the damage, and Livewire Lash is also targeted removal. What more do you want from a cheap equipment?!
