Barbed Shocker Discussion

Makes sense. I feel like harsh mentor only really stops combo with that heavy threat to their life total, forcing miscalculations where they activate an ability then die to direct damage rather than just viewing it as an extra cost. There are a bunch of cards in red that sorta play into the strategy, but they all have problems. Balefire Liege and Stormbreath Dragon is probably too high mana cost , Barbed Shocker does let your opponent refill their hand, but also it forces your opponent to refill their hand, Goblin Razerunners/Obsidian Fireheart or Jaya Ballard, Task Mage are interesting one-ofs to turn late game wasted resources into extra effect, Mindsparker, Zo-Zu the Punisher and Scab-Clan Berserker are of limited use (i'd play them if they cost one less or had 4 toughness), Sin Prodder provides some advantage, but once again, more three drops. Menace is great though. Thats the toolkit that I can remember from my testing, I hope its of some use.

Workman4137 on The Touch of Bolas deck ...

Thank you for the current suggestions. Waste Not is a ton of advantage. Another thought I've been thinking about is Jace's Archivist and Magus of the Wheel since they're really nice cycle abilities.

one such inclusion I would like to have is Barbed Shocker since its cycle on damage, Not just combat damage. So a nice Warstorm Surge is helpful in the deck for some immediate burn and discard. Archaeomancer is another one I would like since I will have spells that are very helpful for those pesky decks that think they can counter my things, such as Disallow and Overwhelming Denial and of course a Izzet Charm and Dimir Charm couldn't hurt either, but I can easily replace them.

And just for extra sillies, a Rite of Replication and Dualcaster Mage are there as placeholders because nothing is wrong with having infinite of everything. XD

Thank you all for the support everyone!

zephramtripp on Black Mill, is it possible?

I think red mill is actually more viable with Wheel of Fortune effects and the like. I know that in OG Conspiracy limited, you could have a nasty red mill from Barbed Shocker.

On the other hand, the best black mill is probably through the Gravestorm of Bitter Ordeal.

Use Shocker and Barbed Shocker and some other creature -Wheel of Fortune effects. Here I have a list that has a bunch of cards that would be good for this-- How To Lose Friends

Also good job +1
