There is no 2-drop thats comparable to a 4/4 flyer. The most played 2 drops in modern right now are: Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger , Dauthi Voidwalker , Tarmogoyf Snapcaster Mage , and that one chick who exiles cards. Boros Charm takes away a lot of backbone the deck holds when GFR isn't on the board as you're turning it from midrange to removal.deck. And it leaves a big hole in us getting stomped vs control in G1. Scion of Draco applies far more pressure than Boros Charm or any of the sideboard cards if that's our goal in G1 as it deals 4 dmg itself & makes it more difficult for the opponent to chomp block out other creatures. Going wide is irrelevant.

X3 Bloodbraid Elf and x4 Shardless Agent are already in the deck to increase the likelihood of us casting removal thru cascade along with card draw from Manamorphose & Territorial Kavu . This deck doesn't need 14+ pieces of removal like cause we have a far greater natural board presence due to GFR and access to monstrous 2-drops such as Scion of Draco and Territorial Kavu .

Deck looks sick. Definitely seems like an improvement from . I do like zapyourtumor's suggestion of including a Stoneforge Mystic package of some sort to really take advantage of what has to offer in the current meta.

I dont see the purpose of comparing Tribal Flames vs Scion of Draco .

Scion of Draco is a 2 drop 4/4 flyer which is EXTREMELY above curve if compared to other 4/4 flyers in MtG. It also improves the combat effectiveness of our creatures, giving General Ferrous Rokiric and his Golem tokens the vigilance you'd be seeking for along with giving them 1st strike. This is not mentioning how it'd give Bloodbraid Elf trample+1st strike, Shardless Agent with trample+hexproof, and Territorial Kavu with 1st strike+trample. Omnath, Locus of Creation will end up having vigilance+trample+hexproof+1st strike.

Tribal Flames is simply an upgraded lightning bolt but our lack of creatures would hurt us in grindy games where we need consistent threats. Tribal Flames is more for an aggro deck than midrange. Plus Tribal Flames is inferior to Abrupt Decay as it can only target creatures meanwhile Lightning Helix provides us with lifegain so we can sustain until we get our real gameplan going. Vindicate is to destroy anything that the earlier 2 cant defeat & then have access to more efficent removal such as Assassin's Trophy in those rare match-ups. Plus Tribal Flames does not trigger General Ferrous Rokiric so the only value it would provides is what's on the card.
