BMHKain on Help for Kresh; except... this ...

Kresh, Worldkiller

Yep, it's true. Kresh, known for mindless power, I'm trying to add control elements into the fray. My purpose is to see if I can put Kresh to Tier 3. To do this, I decided on a variety of Wincons (Kresh the Bloodbraided & Several damage dealers), (Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, The Scorpion God, & any card that can loop.), (Survival of the Fittest & Sneak Attack), even stuff like Avoid Fate, Fog. So I ask you: What to add, & cut? I also want some options for stuff like Stranglehold, Grafdigger's Cage, even stuff that can help with my strategies. I wonder what you think of the deck thus far, as I'd like some adds & cuts. Thank you in advance. :)

Off-color counter-spells like Dawn Charm, Avoid Fate and Lapse of Certainty (I'm sure there are others like this).

Avoid Fate seems like it could easily be upgraded to Blossoming Defense

Thank you very much for the big reply! You make some great points, all witch I agree with. I looked into Genesis Wave before reading your reply, and now i feel very stupid for not getting its role! :) What a fantastic card for this deck.

I will check out your reddit comments while continuing to adjust my deck! I am going for a lower power level build to fit my playgroup, so I'm making it a straight up burn deck, with a bunch of ridiculous sorcery and instant spells that aims at making fun gameplay moments, (like Chain of Acid, and Avoid Fate). Because of the lack of permanents I unfortunately don't think Genesis Wave works very well in my deck. :/

I also decided not to go for fetches because of its anti-synergy with Scrying Sheets and other cards in my build (Lost in the Woods and Rowen). I added Into the North to add consistency to Scrying Sheets. However, I do agree with you, that playing fetches is the objectively better choice. When my deck is finally collected I will let you know how the snow covered land package is preforming!

Sincerely, Mr. Bob Johnson

Change the one swamp to a Forest and Add a single

Avoid Fate Just in case you have one card left in your graveyard still have your maniac left out and need one spell to counter that magma spray or whatever else your opponent might try to blast your creature with.

no no no noooo. The deck is named after Primal Forcemage. It is what makes my Beaters actually work. Why the heck would I want to swing with a 6/1 that just gets sacrificed at the end of turn..IF I am lucky I can have enough mana open ATT for a Fling if it is in my hand, when I can do that very same thing on turn 4 instead of turn 3, but be swinging with a 9/4 that cannot be Lightning Bolt 'ed away or a Magma Spray or a Incinerate or ANY 1-3 mana cost spell that does 3 damage? Yeah, you could target the Mage, but that focuses the burn spell for the other threats in the deck, and eventually you will waste your creature control away on dealing with my critters until they eventually overwhelm you anyway. Besides, Creature hate decks is precisely why I put Avoid Fate in this deck to hopefully be able to deal with at least a little bit of that. As for Control the Vexing Shusher in the side board also deals with that so stuff won't be countered.

The things I really liked best about that block was the color bleeding we got, as well as reprints of old cards.

Greens spells that could counter spells. White spells and Blue spells doing EXTREMELY un blue / white like effects etc. Do you think we will ever see a set like that again, but with maybe a heavier emphasis on color spells not doing what that color does normally? Avoid Fate for a good example.
