cascadien on We're All Mad Here (budget cEDH)

Anvil of Bogardan seems good with madness Apocalypse could be board wipe with madness Avatar of Discord is good value with madness Bog Witch & Skirge Familiargets you mana with madness Bola Warrior synergizes well with creatures like Book Devourer

Skull Rend is probably your worst card and an easy cut. After that, it becomes kinda difficult.

Normally, I would say Lost Legacy but I think it's pretty good right now, and since your deck's overall power level is already subpar, it can't hurt to include.

Avatar of Discord perhaps?

You could use discard, since you already have Faithless Looting and , probably has the best madness cards in; Fiery Temper / Alms of the Vein.

You could go for Minotaur tribal, fitting with Fanatic of Mogis and Mogis, God of Slaughter, run cards like Bloodrage Brawler / Neheb, the Worthy. Vampire tribal is also an option; Stromkirk Captain.

Or you could maximise devotion, simply by running lots of cards like Avatar of Discord or Cryptborn Horror, similar to where you are now.

What I will say is that Fists of the Demigod, isn't a good idea, it gives your opponent an easy 2-for-1 by killing the creature. I'd replace it for now with Curse of Stalked Prey, though that could change depending on your deck style. I guess this is really over to you now, what sort of deck is it you want to build? Hope this helps a little, I'll happily add more if you want to head in a particular direction...

I would ditch Avatar of Discord, you lack the required support of madness cards to make it worth it (not to mention the astronomical mana costs, the combination of casting it + madnessing something can have). In lieu of those it also suffers from the same problem Bloodrage Brawler does. If it gets killed/exiled (or even bounced) you got a tremendous card disadavnatage - and its hard to cast if you topdeck it late game.

Chandra's Phoenix is not as bad, as avatar, but this is just not hte right deck for it. It would thrive in any burn/control deck that can reliably hit face and need cards as fodder for large red spells like Lightning Axe, Knollspine Invocation, Jaya Ballard, Task Mage... etc. This deck only play 6x cards that fulfill the phoenix's reanimation clause, and you would still have to cast it, as you don't have much use for it as a discard fodder (outside of looting it away)

6ixer on Pyromancer deck question

Now I've played the mardu list and it's fun and really good. Don't get me wrong it's good for a reason, but I've been sitting on a play set of Demigod of Revenge and Bloodghast for quite some time now and now red has Young Pyromancer and reveler. I was wondering if there was some way to incorporate them into the same deck but I feel I'd have to lose lingering souls just because I feel like you have to play red/black pyromancer just so you can play that Blood Moon

I know it sounds bad but I'm not about net decking all the time and I get it 5 MANA is alot for that deck but some times you just have land pockets lol

Oh and what about Avatar of Discord

Always have 2x Mogis, God of Slaughter with Avatar/Demigod deck. Axe the 2 Diregraf Colossus. Also, it's not a grave fill with only a playset of Faithless Looting and 2 Avatar of Discord. Either opt for more Avatars or Goblin Lore instead of Invigorated Rampage.

Honestly I forgot Avatar of Discord even existed, I built this deck recently and in a hurry, Ill add 2 and cut 2 Diregraf Colossus, im still going to keep 2 Diregraf Colossus, I like to Bring back Gravecrawler And create tokens with him, its only 6 zombies I know but its a fun interaction when you have the cards. thank you for the suggestion.

Hi HobbyMan5000,

I'm really not sure about Diregraf Colossus in this deck, you are running more Vampires than Zombies, so at best it might be a 5/5 with no evasion, that might create the odd extra Zombie, but again there are only 8 Zombies in your deck... I might actually prefer Avatar of Discord as your 3 drop as it is also a discard outlet, but I'm not sure...

Anyway, I hope that is of some help.
