Our lists are really close!

A very minor black splash gives a lot more mid-range game if you can't get the early kill. Maindeck Go for the Throat is pretty good in the meta and will only be dead vs Tempered Steel. Batterskull is pretty greedy in my testing. I took it out for one Burst Lightning. Burst Lightning is your 5th Lightning Bolt and your 4th out vs Pyro Twin. The one Lavaclaw Reaches will help get there if you get wiped. Squadron Hawk is only three as drawing the 4th one in this deck pretty much does not do anything. Hero of Bladehold is also to help you recover if you get wiped. I think that 3 Stoneforge Mystic is fine also as You run a max of 5 EQ after side and you will most likely draw one EQ. 4 Duress helps with Caw-Blade a lot. Deathmark is for stuff like Sun Titan and BSA.

with the bannings in place what are we to replace stoneforge and the equipments with. I had a thought to go in a completely different direction with boros minus SFM and Swords. with the swords now being at a converted cost of 5 to play and equip, it seems to me they just don't fit the mana curve of boros. So guys what do you think?

I cut the black out of my version and moved the swords to the side.

Great Job mishimakaz on a top 2 finish with boros. Would you like to break down you deck and discuss your choices? Nothings been mentioned about boros in awhile, so it would be really cool if you could get it started. Thanks!
