I found Dizzy Spell which in this deck can be used to delay death against infect and transmute for Banefire lowering the risk of mill and avoid counter spells.

In my opinion, i think you should go with Banefire because this deck seems like it will have a hard time closing out games so you kinda want to guarantee that you can get that damage through.

If you wanna be sure you deal damage to the face you could use Banefire for a big shot :3

APPLE01DOJ HI. This is a question I've posted to someone else too, but I was hoping I could pick your brain as well.

I've been wanting to build a competitive modern build and feel like discard could be the way to go for me. I have a brew, Rat Heavy Discard. It's a pretty good deck in casual, but the more I try to make it competitive the less consistant it is. I realize I'm kind of forcing the rat theme. I plan on making a new rat deck for my casual ratty games, and just biting the bullet and making it an 8rack variant.

I need to pick up a bunch of the pieces, but won't be willing to shell out for Liliana of the Veil or Ensnaring Bridge. I also have the Mutavaults which would swap out for Swarmyard. I'd be willing to shell out for a better mana base too if needed. I've seen some of the budget options for Lili and the Bridge, but I was wondering how crucial they are? Also, do you think keeping my deck black/red is a good idea? In particular I was thinking of running Lightning Bolt, Kolaghan's Command and Banefire. Maybe Death Cloud.

Sorry if this comes off as rambling. Thank you for your time.

Rosheen's Brood is my list for this type of deck.

Looks nice! Cloudstone is a pretty janky thing, and that's a pretty creative way to use it.

A couple spells you might use are: Clan Defiance, Banefire, Release the Gremlins, and Red Sun's Zenith.

I personally run Hardened Scales, Urza's Incubator, and Ventifact Bottle to get some bigger creatures and store mana.

Any thoughts on adding Desperate Ritual or Pyretic Ritual for ramping? It would make Banefire very effective. Either way, cool deck. Happy brewing.

Hey Darrell this is Austin. I haven't really gone through what should replace what but just a list of what to take out and to add in. The cards that are going on the add list should help speed the deck up and cards that should be taken out are either to slow or just not as good as other cards that are on the add list. Now it's your deck so you do what you want, but these cards should help out a lot. Alright here we go.
