Archfiend of Ifnir Discussion

Crucible of Worlds seems like it is an auto-include in this deck. Squandered Resources is insanely good with Splendid Reclamation particularly if you add Amulet of Vigor. Dark Depths also seems like an auto-include. My favorite combo in my frog deck is Archfiend of Ifnir with Zombie Infestation. I added Concordant Crossroads as I often find myself taking a turn in which I can clear all boards and created dozens of creatures but can't swing with them...

Hour of Glory is strictly better than Final Reward here I think. Also, still budget.

Ifnir Deadlands or 1-2 Grasping Dunes may be some nice utility lands to add.

Ruthless Sniper is really good if you can get a cycle/discard theme going. If you do want to go this route, Desert of the Glorified and Key to the City may not be so bad. It helps Archfiend of Ifnir as well.

I believe you are doing the right thing avoiding infect. Though, I do agree with LUTHER that Triumph of the Hordes deserves a spot. With your mana base being top tier you can afford lose the temples for the deserts((Desert of the Fervent; Desert of the Indomitable; Desert of the Glorified) that cycle. This way you would have a reason to run Archfiend of Ifnir other than your "partners" massive draw(and then eventually discard) capabilities. As a bonus the cycle deserts can be sacked to your Ifnir Deadlands.

You could definitely use some more efficient discard spells, look up an 8rack deck to get a few cards you could use. Also your commander choice for this deck is rather strange, she's not a good commander and seeing as how most of your creatures are not gorgon shes terrible. Seeing as how this seems to be on a tight budget Id recommend:

Commander You Should Go With In my Opinion:Greel, Mind Raker

Good Discard Spells and Synergy:

The Rack, Liliana's Caress, Dreamstealer, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Larceny, Rackling, Cao Cao, Lord of Wei, Dark Ritual, Mind Twist, Mind Sludge, Mind Shatter, Read the Bones, Raven's Crime, Mind Slash, Scepter of Fugue, Malicious Affliction, Go for the Throat, Walk the Plank, Shrine of Limitless Power, Necrogen Mists, Black Market, Underworld Connections, Greed, and Archfiend of Ifnir

Thats a lot I know but this deck seems to be just what you had lying around (not a bad thing thats how my decks start) so I thought Id try to help a bit, good luck!

O my. I had no idea about Sarkhan the Mad hes replacing Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded definitly ej133 thank you! For Archfiend of Ifnir what should i take out? its a great card but i like the Incorrigible Youths. Maybe take 2 Cryptbreaker and put 2 Archfiend of Ifnir?? Falconone

I dont know how to feel about Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded the random discard can screw you sometimes.... How about an Archfiend of Ifnir in the deck? He is expensive but could work well in the deck if you face some mass creature decks

Idk if you should cut red all together. I think red has the best spot removal in the format atm (Abrade, Harnessed Lightning, Lightning Strike, Unlicensed Disintegration, Cut, Magma Spray for he-who-must-not-be-named).

I really like Archfiend of Ifnir in jund atm due to the 8 cycle lands you can run. But his downside is how weak he is to Glorybringer... That being said, have you heard about Glorybringer and how good he is? lol.

Far beit from me to recommend cards that don't synergize with the -1/-1 theme (which is great), but I do like red for removal in this format.

Oh, I forgot to add that your in the perfect colors for playsets of Canyon Slough and Sheltered Thicket to go with Archfiend of Ifnir. Cheers!
