(Ochoa) Few creatures complicate the Battlefield as much as Boros Reckoner does. The minotaur causes nothing but problems for opposing creatures because of its combination of first strike and damage redirection. It's difficult to strike the proper balance when blocking the Reckoner. Block with only one and the Reckoner will slay it with first strike. Block with too few and the opponent may use removal to deal with any leftover creatures that didn't die from first strike damage. Block with too many creatures and you'll have a massive chunk of life hewn away from you. Boros Reckoner fits into many archetypes, ranging from very fast aggro to control, and it's primarily used as a tool in creature-heavy matchups.
