We have another Boros deck that made Top 8 this weekend, but this one was in Chile at Grand Prix Santiago. The first one piloted by Benjamin Lundquist was like a White Weenie deck with red splash for Boros Charm and more answers in the Sideboard. You can check it out here. This version borrows from  Mono-red devotion and RDW with a splash of white. Boros Charm is used again, but this time in the board. Chained to the Rocks is great and cheap white removal that demands using Mountain. Assemble the Legion, also in the board, can get quickly out of hand against decks without an answer.

The creatures are all red with as much red mana symbols to abuse the four of Fanatic of MogisPurphoros, God of the Forge in the Board mut also get activated quickly in this strategy. This deck is not like the other devotion or aggro decks, because it borrows from the control strategy. Using the Mizzium Mortars to sweep the opponents board is a powerful strategy in this aggro meta.

Rakdos is back with Madcap SkillsSpike Jester and Rakdos Cackler taking us back to Return to Ravnica drafts. That’s some pretty quick beats when your getting hit turn 2 for 5, of course they’ll probably just burn it away. This is why it’s all about timing, dropping the madcap skills when its right just like in RTR draft. The black devotion Mogis’s Marauder is also a good card in draft and can end up a win condition even in constructed. Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch bringing out the beats and giving haste to its plethora of unleashed monster mash.  This was definitely a  great deck for Halloween…
