Act of Treason Discussion

Mancub97 on Who among you will fight OUR home, OUR Zendikar!!?

Raze999 Yes I would definatley put the Secure the Wastes in sideboard. And the deck seems to me to be very aggressive and I believe that you can get by without the Exquisite Firecraft in Mainboard. If you are worried about removal you would be better of adding Act of Treason, Collateral Damage combo, Crater's Claws, Fiery Impulse, Outnumber, Roast, Twin Bolt, Touch of the Void, Twin Bolt, or Wild Slash. Those in my opinion are good removal spells for your sideboard along with Exquisite Firecraft. And the reason I would put the removal in the sideboard is because you will probably not need it because of how fast you are hitting them. I would also put some artifact/enchantment/land removal in the sideboard as well in case you might need it.

These of course are just my opinions.

alulien good ideas. I like Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip for legendary attach and when flipped and I can play another. With Act of Treason it's no too hard to get 3 attacking creatures.

I feel like this needs 4x Crackling Doom and the full set of both Nantuko Husk and Zulaport Cutthroat are necessary. I'd nick the haruspex for another cutthroat. Also, I think the new 1B 2/1 that comes into play with a 1/1 Eldrazi token is better than the sultai emissary. It just feels more flexible. Sometimes it can help you cast Butcher of the Horde if you're stuck on 3. It doesn't come back as hard against a boardwipe like the emissary does, so its u understandable that you keep him.

Also, I feel like Act of Treason doesn't need to be a 3 of in the side, and that something like Hordeling Outburst is actually a must have in this deck. If you're going to sac a lot of dudes and make people take 1 for every death, I can't think of a better card to run.

I'd take out 2 Act of treason for 2 Crackling Doom out of the board. Cut 2 Smothering Abomination and both sultai emissary for 4x Hordeling Outburst. And nick the haruspex for another Nantuko Husk. But that's just my estimation. Do with it what you will.

I like this deck a lot and intend to play it at FNM, I just made two changes. I swapped out 2x Smothering Abomination for 2x Secure the Wastes, and 2x Bone Splinters for 2x Act of Treason. I think that Smothering Abomination provides too many different sac engines to be focused on in the deck, and Secure the Wastes allows the other sac engines to be used and provides board presence. Act of Treason is supposed to be used as spot removal just like Bone Splinters, but Act of Treason allows extra damage as the creature that is taken has haste, and after it attacks can be used to sac. On a different note, I'm also unsure of what purpose Boiling Earth has in the sideboard.

barnehDJ Thank you for your input! I already have Act of Treason in the sideboard and I would prefer not to go over a converted mana cost of 4 since I'm trying to keep the deck somewhat fast.

I have Outpost Siege and Scab-Clan Berserker in the sideboard already and would like to keep them there for certain match ups. Dragon Whisperer is already in the main board. Lightning Berserker and Goblin Heelcutter don't really have a place in this deck (especially since I'm trying to remove cards to get it down to 60). And there are better burn spells than Arc Lightning.

I think I am going to end up taking out Magmatic Insight but I'm keeping the Thunderbreak Regents.

This is mega budget as I dont like standard and want to spend as little on it as possible.. Save for maybe 2 Roast.

I own several of the cards in the list... Which is why the list contains 4 Act of Treason.

Id like to flesh out the synergy a little without going to far.. though I may have to many spells that do nothing in the deck. Which is also why I have cut down to just 2 Ghostfire Blade.

Im seeking potentially another sac outlet in case I do keep the Act of Treason in the deck, in order to deny my opponent their freshly stolen creature.. maybe Exploit?

(Id like to make Grave Strength worth casting.. Ive considered Gurmag Angler and though Im still uncertain what the deck is trying to do.)

Ill be searching through the cards myself.. though they must be under a dollar.. if that is even possible..

Otherwise, is it bad?

Lets say I take control of my opponents creature with Act of Treason and enchant it with Demonic Appetite. I proceed to attack with the enchanted creature, the turn ends, and the enchanted creature goes back to my opponents control. Does my opponent have to fulfill the sacrifice requirement for Demonic Appetite or do I?

Rally the Ancestors isn't that strong in this deck. I typically don't have that many creatures in my graveyard, cause I am always bringing them back. Also I create quite a few tokens. Bone Splinters is a card I am on the fence with. I do like it as it is very playable for me. Act of Treason does it for me. I take their creature that is the biggest threat, hit them with it, then sac it. Also it works with Mardu Ascendancy. Now, I really like the Chandra's Ignition idea. I may swap 2 Crackling Doom for it. Thanks for the suggestions. They are great ideas to playtest and see.
