CKL Plays (Modern) – “Tasi Burn”

This week, we are rockin’ a Modern RDW list that trades Wild Nacatals and Lightning Helix for Tasigurs and Bump in the Nights.  Playing Bump in place of 2-mana boros-colored burn spells allows for more explosive turn two prowess triggers as well as late game mana-flood options.  Tasigur functions as a Wild Nactal upgrade that won’t die to a single Lightning Bolt and again, has potential for late game utility.

Our sideboard is a work in progress.  Other options include Kolaghan’s Command, Rakdos Charm, or more copies of Self-Inflicted Wound.  Without the lifegain from Kor Firewalker and Lightning Helix, the aggro mirrors are tricky.  Tasigur’s big butt helps but running Dragon Claw seems to be the best option at this point.
