I'd like help with most auto-sac creatures or things like Ball Lightning. More kill spells would also be great. When suggesting things, please also suggest what to take out. Thank you in advance.

I will Kresh you.

Thank you for following me! Here are my suggestions for this Fling deck:

Ball Lightning should be an auto-include in this deck, you can get it for 1$ in Masters 25. It is better than Arc Runner.

If you are going for the take control/fling synergy I recommend Zealous Conscripts (0,69$). A suggestion for a win con (but more expansive card, about 7$) could be Insurrection.

There would be great value to replace Dragon Mantle with Dragon Breath, with its built-in recursion.

You can generate cool results similar to Adarkar Valkyrie with Gift of Immortality. I could se it used with something like Keldon Champion in this deck.

There are currently 102 cards in the deck; you can probably do without Jar of Eyeballs, Scout's Warning, Defiant Strike and Weapon Surge.

Hope this helps! Please comment and upvote my decks if you like them.

Life's Legacy is the card which gives me trouble. If I sack a Groundbreaker or Ball Lightning during second main phase, it gives me 6 cards for 2 mana and I had to sack this creatures either way, if I have Primal Forcemage in play it even gives me 9 cards, that means: "win game on next turn". How many do I need to mainboard? What cards should I loose if I want more Life's Legacy in my mainboard?

Are there any other good creatures like Ball Lightning, Force of Savagery, etc. I just asking because I'd like to put more creatures like them into my Kresh the Bloodbraided deck. Thanks

Path to Exile is pretty good, but you should run 4x Anguished Unmaking instead. It hits more stuff. Also, you are running way too many Intangible Virtues. I would cut that card down to 1 or 2 tops. They are just so bad in multiples. Lastly, you should swap your Liliana of the Veils for Liliana of the Dark Realms, and if you really want to make the deck competitive, consider splashing red for Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded and 2-3 Ball Lightning as a finisher.

You're welcome in advance for the excellent suggestions.

Naya Elementals with Collected Company is fucking hilarious. You cast Collected Company and flip over Ball Lightnings/Groundbreakers and clock your opponent for 12 on turn 3.

There's a neat RG aggro deck on here called CoCo Ball Breaker that played Bloodbraid Elf with Ball Lightning and Groundbreaker. It doesn't have Bloodbraid anymore, but it worked pretty well when it did. I think someone made a video of it being played. You could even combine that idea with a Primal Forcemage deck (like this: to make it even more explosive.

Consider swapping out Ball Lightning for Rite of the Raging Storm.
