Pioneer: Boros Burn

New format means new burn deck. It’s the normal go to deck in every format. Send damage to the dome a whole bunch before the metagame figures itself out.

I started this list with Matt Sperling’s Pro Tour Magic 2015 Boros Burn list and tried to make some upgrades or make changes I think are for the better. Light Up The Stage is probably one of the best new cards for this list. Burn having draw power is usually nutty. I thought about trying to jam Treasure Cruise but without fetches I don’t know how well I could make the mana work. Light Up The Stage is solid enough though. Especially with cards like Stoke the Flames. Little to no mana left? Tap some creatures down. Four to the dome. Boom, gotem.

Runaway Steam Kin and Young Pyromancer working together seems like Valuetown, USA to me. You get to go tall and wide at the same time all while building an emergency mana bank. Get the mana saved up then go nuts with cards like Light Up The Stage, get more Pyromancer tokens, rebuild the Steam Kin, win forever.

Here’s my initial list for the Pioneer format. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

4 Monastery Swiftspear
4 Young Pyromancer
4 Runaway Steam Kin

4 Boros Charm
4 Skullcrack
4 Lightning Strike
4 Skewer the Critics
4 Light Up the Stage
4 Stoke the Flames
4 Warleader’s Helix

4 Battlefield Forge
4 Sacred Foundry
4 Mutavault
8 Mountain
