Hammer Time

From Friday Night Magic to the Pro Tour, Adam Prosak loves all types of tournament Magic. Currently, Adam is working in R&D as a developer.

This deck has a little bit of everything. Plan A is to accelerate out a Blood Moon effect, preferably on the second turn via Simian Spirit Guide or Desperate Ritual. Blood Moon has a huge effect on most games, stifling opposing mana bases often filled with dual lands and utility lands.

Plan B is to play an efficient threat, many of which are capable of winning the game on their own. Figure of Destiny, Boros Reckoner, Koth of the Hammer, and Thundermaw Hellkite are each big threats that can close the game quickly when unanswered. Given the dedication to Blood Moon and acceleration, each threat needs to be capable of winning the game on its own. These creatures have been selected to do so.

Finally, there is a suite of disruption. Lightning Bolt, Skred, and Pyroclasm are all excellent removal spells, and Skred and Pyroclasm in particular have a great interaction with Boros Reckoner. As for noncreature disruption, Relic of Progenitus makes its way into the main deck so the sideboard can contain many different ways to interact with opposing strategies. Leyline of Sanctity, Shatterstorm, Torpor Orb, and Combust provide some very hateful cards for popular strategies in Modern. Besides, you haven't lived until you've cast Combust on your own Boros Reckoner for lethal damage!
