Why would you play Disintegrate over Demonfire?

And besides, the reason Boros isn't good anymore is Sulfur Elemental. Which both versions die to.

Don't listen to that, every deck loses to random hate.

Anyways, I don't like this version too much, due to the fact that it's not aggressive enough. If you play Boros, then you're playing the deck because you want to deal considerable early damage before finishing off your opponent with something that can't be stopped by blockers. IMO, Calciderm doesn't achieve that goal.

and I think you need Worship sideboard. Glare is just impossible to beat, you can't clock them. But Worship will give you something like 20 turns to burn them out, and 20 turns really should be enough.

Na it's not better at all, it basically just looks like regular boros. try something like this:

4x Savannah Lions
4x Scorched Rusulka (could also be icatian javelineer)
4x Knight of the Holy Nimbus
4x Sulfur Elemental
4x Boros Swiftblade

4x Glorious Anthem
4x Lightning Helix
4x Char
4x Rift Bolt
3x Brute Force

21x normal boros mana base slightly but more weighted to red.

That technically should be able to beat down faster, especially comboing sulfur elemental with glorious anthem to do deadly swings with boros swiftblade and knight of the holy nimbus.

considering that every deck that plays red and wins games is playing sulfur elemental, and considering that those decks are in the top spots in every magic-league AND magic online tournament, i would not classify it as random hate. how about "format staple"

well guys...here at my local tourney there will be just one UR Tron, so just 4 Sulfur Elemental....So I think thats not a big problem....

Changes:
Sideboard:
-4 Cloudchaser Kestrel
-1 Disintegrate
+4 Ronom Unicorn
+1 Demonfire

Theres not Glares deck playing this tourney (Im 99% sure) so Worship is just not playable now.

More ideas??¿¿

Jotun Grunt is savage vs that dredge deck and normally is a house even not facing it because you throw so many cards in the yard, it is also amazing versus call of the herd tokens and stopping them from flashing it back. Also avenger is very good against MGA I dunno exactly what your metagame is like though. The current build that I am running is splashing black also for confidant main and persecute/extirpate sideboard. Helps a lot versus about everything. So far I have t4ed my last couple FNMs with this no problem. If you are going to run either rusalka or icatian it should be rusalka. Rusalka deals more damage of the course of the game and doesn't instantly die to sulfur elemental.
