Thx for all suggestions you done so far comrade!

  • Dualcaster Mage combo - as I say early - "I try to avoid using infinite combos building my decks." Especially when your deck is mono-color (Black is an exception imho) its quite hard to tutor combo pieces.

  • Mob Rule & Insurrection - dont quite fit the deck theme and too mana heavy.

Thx for upvote comrade!

Thx for upvote comrade!

  • Mana Echoes - great card, but not here. There is simply not enough goblins ;-)

Love it, +1 from me! Check out Grinning Ignus and Aftershock btw. The latter is a great utility spell while Ignus combos with Purphoros and turns on Storm engines with Empty the Warrens and Volcanic Awakening.

Aftershock is good for mono-red. Also, Hanweir Garrison might work well for you. Great card on it's own

You're thinking about it the wrong way, in my opinion, as far as being just one card to win. EDH, and M:TG in general, is all about consistency. Versatile or modal cards are held in extremely high regard for that very reason. Problem-cards aren't that rare to encounter.

Trust me; removal is MORE important in aggro decks than others and mono-red is rather one-dimensional in that regard. If you feel your deck is fast enough or has enough ways to go over effects like Propaganda, Blazing Archon, Avacyn, Angel of Hope or anything else then by all means go for it. I am never ever sad to see it in my goblin deck, but mine has far fewer effects like Massive Raid, Goblin War Strike, Boggart Shenanigans, et al, and I have access to Black mana (and access to marginally more versatile removal. Still no enchantment removal).

Aftershock is good, versatile removal as well.

Have you played this deck? Is it real? You would know better than anyone if you need more or fewer untappers. Umbral Mantle is expensive at 3 mana per untap but untapping Krenko is so hawt, as his insane ability is free. In fact, if you have the mana you can reuse Umbral Mantle--not so with Magewright's Stone and such. So it's probably worth it.

Certainly, here are some cards I would consider cutting:

Surrak Dragonclaw - It's nice flavor but meh otherwise. Most of your stuff has flying anyway so trample isn't really needed. Granted the anti-control tech is nice, but with 4 people in a game the blue mage can only counter so much. Your call.

Destructor Dragon - Pretty weak for what it does. Acidic Slime does it better and a 4/4 isn't scaring anyone. Getting this bounced is going to feel bad.

Aftershock - Again, pretty slow. This one you could keep in though because it is pretty flexible.

I would cut one of your redundant artifact destroyers, you have quite a few. Probably Viashino Heretic just because he's slower than your other options and you need all the speed you can get in a budget deck.

Brutal Expulsion - Too much mana for what it does, even off an Intet flip I don't think it's worth it. I think you would be better off running a cheap counter that's easier to hold up like Swan Song or Stubborn Denial.

Yavimaya Elder - Don't get me wrong this is a good card. But since you care more about etb effects and don't run Birthing Pod this one might be cut-worthy. Also he's over a dollar so it will make space budget-wise.

Fervor - It's OK, but it's definitely a cut if you need space. It's certainly not Temur Ascendancy

Good luck! Try stuff out, see what you like. Just make sure you don't run your average cmc up too high trying to fit in all the good stuff ;)

Aftershock might interest you: still triggers your commander. Burn Trail can trigger multiple times. Staggershock, Flare, and Zap are all efficient as well.

Adamaro on Zo-Zu Hates Your Lands

Thanks for the compliment Suaz14! Here are some more. Please excuse my need to recommend creature spells... It's my favorite card type. I'll be sure to include some non-creatures as well!

You'll probably want to be drawing cards while your opponents are forced to discard cards because they're missing land drops or just barely making the cut at 7 cards in hand. In any case Sandstone Oracle is a budget friendly draw spell. There are plenty of other better options too, but it was just a thought.

I'm not going to be cruel and "suggest" the cards above, that's a lot of clicking around for you to do. So I'll just leave the list here. Hopefully you see something that sparks some interest!
