Modern Mayhem: Boros SupaFrandz (Modern, Magic Online)


#MTGM20 brought us Chandra, Awakened Inferno and I had to see what it can do in Modern...

Gameplan

The deck might seem familiar because awhile back there was a deck called Sun and Moon or Boros Superfriends, whatever you want to call it. That part is up to you. They both played a similar gameplan in kind of trying to do a prison game plan in the beginning with cards like Chalice of the Void or Blood Moon

With where modern is right now, I have to assume the number of games we could lock out decks who are loaded with one cost cards in their deck if we land a chalice for one on turn one is quite significant. There is also another reason I wanted to play this deck this week! The reason is that Tron is fresh off a Mythic Championship win so I wanted to see how many times we can pester them and other decks with big mana or greedy mana bases thanks to Blood Moon.

Speaking of Tron and colorless decks, We also get to try to update the deck with Karn, the Great Creator

Awhile back when I was playing Sun & Moon, we didn't have a crazy win condition as I would often sit behind planeswalkers and destabilize but now we get a new win con in Karn, the Great Creator. If we're able to slap this on the board with Mycosynth Lattice, it's looking pretty gloom for the opponent as we're able to keep the lock on our opponent going and eventually just beat them with the Lattice or anything else as they'll have no lands and etc.

Now we have the whole reason I wanted to even play this deck, to begin with! Chandra, Awakened Inferno will eventually beat our opponent if they're sitting there locked behind any prison plan we have as I feel like Modern often times has opponents starting from around fourteen to fifteen health. Not only that, but Chandra coming down and being a sweeper or removal for a bigger threat or planeswalker is very nice.

I'm also a fan of Abrade as there have been a ton of Whir-Za decks out there with the Thopter Foundry and Sword of the Meek so it's nice to have some main deck hate for artifacts. This can also double back as a way to help us deal with early aggression or Hardened Scales decks.

Conclusion

Unfortunately, we didn't run too hot this week as the deck still feels a tad bit weak and with so many Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis decks stomping through the meta, it's hard playing a deck that doesn't have a load of exiling effects like Path to Exile or Celestial Purge. Unfortunately, since we're often trying to put Chalice of the Void on one, we can't really play Path and Celestial Purge isn't a card I want in the main deck. Maybe moving forward, we should be putting the Rest in Peace main deck and also playing Celestial Purge sideboard as sitting behind an Ensnaring Bridge against Hogaak feels like delaying the inevitable. Also, in Match 3, we got a quick reminder of how Phyrexian Obliterator works and it's absolutely hilarious.

Hopefully we get a few more W's next time but thanks for watching and I'll see you at the next one!
