Thread seems pretty inactive so let's get some discussion going! Any opinions on this build?

3 x Vampire Neonate

1 x Doomed Dissenter
1 x Druid of the Cowl
1 x Macabre Waltz
1 x Marauder's Axe

1 x Isareth the Awakener
3 x Daggerback Basilisk
1 x Plague Mare
1 x Mind Rot
1 x Murder

1 x Gravedigger
1 x Strangling Spores
1 x Blood Divination
1 x Bristling Boar

1 x Vampire Sovereign
2 x Lich's Caress

1 x Ghastbark Twins

9 x Swamp
7 x Forest
2 x Foul Orchard


Cards in sideboard not used: Diregraf Ghoul, 2 Two-Headed Zombie, Bogstomper, Greenwood Sentinel, Highland Game, Colossal Majesty, Dragon's Hoard. Among the off color cards, there is an Electrify.

Running 18 lands because of the 3 Vampire Neonates as mana sinks, plus a Waltz to discard excess lands. A question would be whether I want to run Colossal Majesty in conjunction with my 2 Two Headed Zombie, which I haven't, because the deck's win conditions look strong enough that I don't think I want such an aggressive creature. Don't think I want Electrify since it'd mean I have to run Dragon's Hoard, and I have enough removal already.

Haven't started playing yet!

why not run Colossal Majesty? the deck looks like it wants to grind the games out?

Current list. I got some bombs in packs 2 and 3 that I wasn't really planning on, so I just tried to cobble together a three-color thing to run them. 2-0 so far.

Which 4-power creatures though? If the Zombies were Rhox Oracles, sure, but since they're not ...

vert's deck is 3 colors, eww. That's only 7 black and 7 green sources, not sure how reliable that will be, maybe run more green so you can cast Elvish Rejuvenator reliably to get the other colors.

Yeah, it's ugly, but it turns out that if I resolve Tezzeret, it's cruise control.

Finished 2-3. My draws just did not line up well, although I did make one play error that might've let me live one more turn.

Auras are the lamest **** ever. Two Lich's Caress and 1 Murder? They're not in my top 14 cards, lost to Rustwing Falcon with Knight's Pledge ^____^

This format is broken... Boris aggro is just so frigging consistent.
I´m at a 7 draft run with still 1500 gems... Insane!
latest deck 7-0

Seriously how the hell ... every time I draft Boros Aggro I crash and burn. Like, you have a deck with 5 Viashino Pyromancers. Okay, but do you never run into Dryad Greenseeker and Omenspeakers!?

I did lose a game to Boros aggro last run, but I completely misplayed by letting him swing with Inferno Hellion, I could just have Luminous Bonds it and save myself 9 damage (he had Trumpet Blast) and I would've won by a wide margin.

I run into 1/3 and 2/3 and bigger creatures all the time... I just attack when I can make some profitable exchanges if I can't then I just develop my board until I can attack with a huge board and a pump spell decimating my opponent's board or life... the deck so much faster than anything else out there, thats without taking into consideration Goblin Motivator or Courser or Stag

Probably depends on the type of player you are. Like, I'm doing okay with Boros Aggro, but am very definitely not chaining 7 wins like others do.

I tend to do better with midrange and control strategies, and that is regardless of the colour combination (Like, I recently drafted Boros Midrange and ended 6-3)

You only have one pump spell though (Angel)?

I try to draft what's open, but next draft I'm going to end up in Boros and go 2-3 ... I just know it ...

P1P1: Pelakka Wurm, Luminous Bonds, or Poison-Tip Archer?

I'm leaning towards the wurm but if do that definitely no Boros for me (ha) and Poison-Tip Archer is a really good card as well. Come to think of it though, perhaps Bonds is the pick not because I want to force Boros, but because it's splashable.

Oh Pelaka is solid.. but its main problem is that is not boros... :P
I think I would risk it with Pelaka and try to grab ramp spells and Colossal Majesty... mono green is not a bad archetype

Pelakka, don't even think it's close. You do want Druid of the Cowl, Rejuvenator or Gift of Paradise more than usual, though.

One pick has come up for me a lot recently, and I'm not 100% sure. Would you agree with picking Lightning Strike over Dismissive Pyromancer P1P1?

I love looters too much to correctly evaluate the choice here, What relevant commons and uncommons have 4 toughness? Regal bloodlord comes to mind.

Thought call Modulo... I think I would end up grabbing the Pyromancer coz it has more utility but I dunno if its better than Lightning strike... What did you pick?

Definitely a tough call and I'm not confident my choice is correct, but I favor Lightning Strike because its effect is immediate and the floor of the card is a bit higher (Pyromancer's floor is Grizzly Bears, Lightning Strike's floor is, well, Lightning Strike). Pyromancer has a much higher ceiling though, especially in more controlling decks.

I went 7-1 with a boros draft. (My 1st 7-x draft in M19, i m used to go with 3-3)
Here is the link to the draft & deck.
https://mtgarena.pro/draft/32175/73ddff16-f7c7-49f3-a757-403fc74b90e9/

I have the feeling i should go BW after viewing the picks.
What do you think ?

2-3, yippee. Didn't predict the Boros part right, got the record right regardless.

Typical board state: Image

See my board of five creatures? See that Vampire Neonate and Omenspeaker? This happens way too often whenever I try to draft Boros.

EDIT: Well, here's another attempt. Any build suggestions? Not sure what to cut - the lifegain synergies is good, but there're only two payoffs. Rustwing Falcon & Skeleton Archer seem like clear cuts, need three more though.
