Red Blitz is one of the most popular and successful strategies in Modern—and it was one of the biggest winners from Strixhaven. Izzet Blitz has surged after gaining Expressive Iteration as a new tool, but the set's also opened up a whole new path for Prowess decks with its white magecraft creatures—Clever Lumimancer and Leonin Lightscribe.

Boros Blitz is Modern's newest deck, because of the incredibly high potential of Clever Lumimancer and its +2/+2 trigger. It's twice as powerful as normal prowess creatures, making Boros faster and more explosive than previous versions. Other benefits of white, like having great sideboard cards and access to Lurrus of the Dream Den as a companion, make Boros an appealing option.

Breaking Magecraft with Storm Spells

Boros is especially exciting because of its potential to push things even further and truly take advantage of the new tools. It can dial up the brokenness to the max by combining magecraft with storm spells, which with their copies will trigger magecraft multiple times for a massive dose of damage. With Ground Rift as a functional one-mana storm spell to follow a chain of free spells, clearing all blockers and easily capable of growing Clever Lumimancer by ten or more power, the strategy can feel combo-like in its speed and explosiveness.

To top it off, this is a perfect place for Nivmagus Elemental, which similarly breaks storm spells and their copies. Players have been trying and failing to use it successfully for years, in part because building a whole deck around one creature is a fool's errand. Now that it has a critical mass of support, it's time for Nivmagus Elemental to shine.

It all combines to make a fun, exciting, new strategy—and it's the perfect deck to build on a budget. It's based around new Strixhaven cards that are cheap and readily available (bargains like Nivmagus Elemental) and filled out by mostly common and uncommon staples easy to find, if not already in-hand. It's also brutally effective, and has the speed to potentially beat any and every opponent out there.

Four Ground Rift aren't enough storm spells for 12 creatures profiting the mechanic, so the deck turns to some effective two-mana options—the familiar Grapeshot and an old favorite, Haze of Rage. Grapeshot is a great burn spell in a deck full of free spells to boost storm, and can generate card advantage, mowing down small creatures or help take down a big one, or the opponent themselves. It's a proven staple and flexible card, and a great addition here.

Haze of Rage was a fun card that saw play in Time Spiral Block Constructed, where it was especially good with suspend, and it has great applications in this deck. With one creature in play, it has damage potential just like Grapeshot. But when there are multiple to pump, it's the superior card. This deck can't count on having multiple in play, but having access to one copy for those games where the draw is high on creatures but low on spells, Haze of Rage will be a nice way out. Buyback is another real benefit giving the deck extra staying power.

Beyond that, the deck is filled with all the staples typical of any Prowess deck—free Phyrexian mana spells (Gut Shot and Mutagenic Growth), the broken Manamorphose and Lava Dart as two spells in one, and the trusty Lightning Bolt. Apostle's Blessing is a nice way to protect creatures from removal, since the deck can't operate without them.

Playing with Prowess

Prowess and Magecraft decks, and this version more than others, is a lot like Infect or Auras.It's a combo deck built around a creature, and any hand without one is a mulligan. That makes the process straightforward, and basically any hand with a creature and a land or two is probably worth keeping. When it does have a creature, an opponent must answer it or risk being killed as early as turn two, something both Clever Lumimancer and Nivmagus Elemental are very capable of doing.

Sideboarding is also straightforward with creatures never coming out. Just trim some spells for a few high-impact cards in the matchup.

Rip Apart is quietly one of the best cards in Strixhaven—an upgraded Abrade for decks with access to white, and its flexibility is fantastic here.

Red decks are rising in Modern, and Kor Firewalker is a premium card that gives Boros an advantage over other versions.

Postmortem Lunge acts like a backup creature against decks with removal, combining a magecraft trigger with a creature for the best of both worlds, and hopefully an immediate kill.

Bedlam Reveler is another great tool against decks with lots of removal that'll slow down the game. Being an extra creature itself is great, especially one immune to most commonly-played removal, and the card advantage helps grind them out.

Building up Blitz

The budget Boros build as it stands does a great job at what it does, and there's not a ton of need or even room to upgrade it. My recommendation for the best basic upgrade would be to:

Upgrade List

Taking it to the Next Level with Jeskai

If you're building with no budget considerations, with access to fetchlands and shocks, there is one expensive but simple modification to the deck that makes it even more efficient and deadly.

Flusterstorm acts as a great one-mana magecraft enabler just like Ground Rift— you can cast it on your own spell. It's also a very effective counterspell to protect creatures from removal, so it's an incredible addition that brings the deck to its full potential. It replaces the less-efficient Grapeshot.

Here's a list from unagieel—the first I saw playing the strategy on MTGO, and who continues to develop it.

Get Ready for Red

Red Blitz decks are at the top of Modern, and new Strixhaven cards have only strengthened their hold. Now is a great time to jump on the bandwagon, and the new Boros style is a great way to do that. The combo-like version with Nivmagus Elemental and storm spells is fun and exciting, but it'd be just as easy to swap them out for Monastery Swiftspear and/or Soul-Scar Mage and some spells to play a more traditional Boros Blitz style on a budget. Whatever the exact color or version, if you're playing a Blitz deck, rest assured you're playing one of the top decks in Modern, and one that's going to be effective for a long time to come.
