Abbot of Keral Keep Discussion

lagotripha on The Pioneers of Burn

3 weeks ago

Pioneer 1 drop toolkit

Burn has a few great things carrying over from modern- Eidolon of the Great Revel Abbot of Keral Keep , Bomat Courier , Legion Loyalist

Goblin heavy has tribal lords, tokens etc.

Artifacts-matter has Shrapnel Blast

Akroan Crusader / Foundry Street Denizen is cute with entries like Rile and Collateral Damage and might find a go-wide plan.

Flameblade Adept / Hollow One discard matters with Insolent Neonate / Merchant of the Vale is a thing.

Otherworldly Outburst and Skin Invasion  Flip might see play in a creature-heavy meta. Thud might just be the best burn spell in the format, depending on how removal looks.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Because There Must Always Be a Burn Deck

4 weeks ago

Hi StriderHaryu, gotta say I really like the concept of Torbran, Thane of Red Fell catalyzing a burn deck. I was brewing a similar list more based off of Amonkhet standard based off Ramunap Red. Here are my immediate suggestions (note I have done no playtesting yet, I'm still picking up the cards for my list):

-3 Abrade +1 Lightning Strike +2 Stoke the Flames

Unless artifacts are a huge part of the Pioneer meta Abrade is probably better off in the sideboard, I think rounding out your Strikes and adding Stoke is better, since I remember Stoke being pretty good in M15 standard and your list is pretty creature-heavy.

-4 Shock +1 Wild Slash +3 Searing Blood

Wild Slash is strictly better Shock, no reason not to use it first. Blood is the equivalent of Searing Blaze in this new format as I see it; seems pretty strong.

You can probably stand to run Scavenger Grounds over Grafdigger's Cage in the sideboard given it synergises with Ramunap Ruins more.

Other card suggestions I have, over no particular cards in your list would be Abbot of Keral Keep , Eidolon of the Great Revel , Skewer the Critics , and Light Up the Stage .

Feel free to check out my brew here and return suggestions!

Bloodwater Entity is extremely useful here. Its on legs so you can flicker it or copy it. Other topdeck manipulation creatures Omenspeaker Sage Owl Spire Owl Sage of Epityr Augury Owl

Cards that can abuse topdeck being known Psychic Battle Chaos Warp Spark of Creativity Erratic Explosion Prophetic Flamespeaker Abbot of Keral Keep Augur of Bolas Dark-Dweller Oracle Experimental Frenzy

Cards that let you see topdeck Lantern of Insight Goblin Spy Future Sight Magus of the Future

Cathartic Adept and similar mill effects can help you move past undesirable topdeck cards. Gives control when you can see enemy topdecks Pyxis of Pandemonium Ghoulcaller's Bell Drowner Initiate Hedron Crab Jace's Erasure Drowned Secrets Codex Shredder

If you're looking for hard and fast deck stacking, check out Brainstorm Ponder Preordain Serum Visions Index Mystic Speculation Opt Portent Spy Network Trickery Charm Ancestral Knowledge Contingency Plan Foreshadow Information Dealer Omen Predict Bamboozle Long-Term Plans Second Sight

If you're looking for combo potential, Memory Lapse is pretty filthy with putting your spell from hand to top of library, and it raises your storm QUITE A BIT. Hinder can do similar tricks.

Firebrand Archer , Abbot of Keral Keep , Jeskai Elder , Mistfire Adept , If you can and are willing to due it's price, Monastery Mentor , Ojutai Exemplars , Soulblade Djinn , Soulfire Grand Master in case you are willing to trade some card draw instants for Bolts, Helix and such spells, even so, with her ability it could get your spells back, Strongarm Monk , Monastery Swiftspear and Student of Ojutai , those will be my suggestions to achieve something like a monk type tribal thing? also some of them help your commander such as the one that taps creatures and gives flying, Voltron seems like a good theme for this guy, if you put up a description sooner, tag me in! I wanna see it, and if you want to come by my profile to see some of my decks, will be appreciated! :)

I would take out Abbot of Keral Keep for Akroan Conscriptor . Also instead of Knight of the White Orchid I would put Weathered Wayfarer . Check out my list.

hubatish on Feather, Zada's Best Friend

7 months ago

But good point on the goblin subtheme! I did start off with Goblin Matron for tutoring Zada, then cut since Feather is also quite potent. I may do these swaps though: -Card draw 2 drops ( Wall of Omens , Abbot of Keral Keep ). +token/mana goblins ( Mogg War Marshal , Wily Goblin ).

Another theme that hasn't quite gotten there is Sunforger & 3-4 mana instants. Right now most of my instants cost 1-2 & draw a card, which is not really what you want Sunforger to be tutoring for. Right now Eerie Interlude is the best target.

guttersnipe is just terrible in modern.. 3 mana that could easily have just been another bolt, and there is a million better options than shock, most of which are fairly cheap.

some shock replacements include:

Wild Slash

Flame Slash

Searing Blaze


Shard Volley

Deflecting Palm

Collateral Damage

Gut Shot

Molten Rain

Chained to the Rocks

guttersnipe could be replaced by plenty of lower cmc creatures not seen in regular burn decks

Young Pyromancer

Firebrand Archer

Kiln Fiend

Goblin Arsonist / Goblin Grenade

Mogg Fanatic

Keldon Marauders

Seeker of the Way

Soul-Scar Mage

Abbot of Keral Keep

sideboard you could and should run more artfact and enchantment hate like


Wear / Tear

Smash to Smithereens

or even just the very basics in Smelt and Demystify
