Angrath, the Flame-Chained Discussion

The Ravenous Chupacabra , and anything Angrath, the Flame-Chained steals make for good sac outlets too.

Currently, I have played 10 games with the deck with 70% win rate, losing to 2 aggro decks where I did not draw any Sovereign's Bite and one deck that deployed two Fountain of Renewal s on the first two turns.

Any deck that aims to be a slower midrange build like golgari or even slower jeskai/bant control, falls prey to this deck. Aggro decks like burn will fall, as long as I draw 2 or more copies of Sovereign's Bite (there are 6 total copies with the 2 Expansion / Explosion ).

Overall, I am satisfied with the list, but will test the 8 wizards version later down the line, as suggested by Flooremoji. The only card that has underperformed has been Flame of Keld as the punisher aspect of the deck is filling up our hand.

Flame will become 1 copy of Angrath, the Flame-Chained as per the suggestion of multimedia.

The deck is incredibly fun to play - one game I resolved 3 Theater of Horrors , the amount of CA was insane.

Hey, Angrath, the Flame-Chained has good interaction with Theater of Horrors . These two can be a mid/late game card advantage engine. His +1 can be a repeatable no mana cost spectacle enabler, that's good with Skewer and Stage.

Hey, you're welcome. I like the changes.

The main deck and the sideboard lack draw options. Draw is important to give you more fuel for Hero, Judith and Priest; these cards require a lot of fuel. Consider main deck Midnight Reaper and sideboard Theater of Horrors ? They are both in the maybeboard. I like Reaper a lot with Gutterbones. This interaction has much more impact here then a lot of other cards because of all the sac outlets (Pontiff and Priest). Out of all the four drops you can be playing Teysa has the least impact for four mana :( I'm sorry to say, but Teysa other than being multicolored for Hero and giving tokens lifelink she doesn't do much. The afterlife interactions with her ability are few and far between, so much so that you'll rarely get that bonus. Like Panharmonicon she's not a card for Standard, she's for Commander.

Consider main deck 2-3x Reaper and sideboard 2x Theater. Cards to consider cutting for these additions are Teysa, Seraph, Wrath, Audience.

Some good interactions to keep in mind are:

  1. Pride of Conquerors against Cry of the Carnarium and Goblin Chainwhirler .
  2. Angrath, the Flame-Chained + Theater of Horrors for midrange/control matchups. Angrath's +1 is a repeatable no mana cost spectacle enabler. In midrange matchups steal your opponent's creature, attack with it and then sac it for more value.

Not sure if 3 main and 2 Sb planeswalkers count as “loads”... but I like the deck!

Considered Angrath, the Flame-Chained for grind matchups?

itachi45 thanks for the suggestion but Angrath, the Flame-Chained seems better suited to a discard deck, and at 5 mana is a bit slow.

I'm taking note for my Death's Draw deck though ;-)

Rekindling Phoenix is a great option. I really like discard at the moment, especially in grixis because there are so many options. Disinformation Campaign is really good alongside Thought Erasure , and even better if you change Ionize to Sinister Sabotage . Grixis also has access to Angrath, the Flame-Chained , Carnival / Carnage (in a week or so), Discovery / Dispersal , and The Eldest Reborn . Also, I can easily see aggro decks running all over this, I would run some number of Ritual of Soot or some kind of wrath effects with additional ones in the sideboard.
