Blasphemous Act Discussion

StopShot on Alesha, Who smiles at Turn 5 Wins EDH(combo)

1 day ago

I see you also have a combo-based Alesha deck. I have some recommendations that you'll probably enjoy.

Master of Cruelties and the Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine are both really powerful combos. You could make them much more potent as well. Break Through the Line will work so long as you pay 1 mana before equipping the sword to whichever creature, and Master of Cruelties finds it hilarious if you give it to him before blockers are declared. Key to the City also works but as a trade-off you lose haste for card filtering which is a decent trade-off.

I also see you have Skullclamp. If you invest in a Bloodghast your land-drops become 1-mana draw two spells, and if you get more fetch-lands they become 2-mana draw four spells. You normally got to be running blue to get that kind of draw power.

Panharmonicon is pretty nice, but if you have that and Flameshadow Conjuring you get quadruple the enter the battlefield triggers. Pair that with Avalanche Riders or Murderous Redcap or Angel of Invention or Siege-Gang Commander and you got some pretty solid value right there.

If you want to put your opponent at punching range Sorin Markov is your right-hand man. Putting someone down to 10 life in a commander game is pretty painful and if he manages to survive after you minus him he'll actually eat that opponent alive himself with his plus ability.

Your removal spells seem good. I'd recommend you test out Chaos Warp, Wear / Tear, Day of Judgment (You won't run into regeneration as often as you think.)

If you want a really nasty game-ender I suggest running Blasphemous Act and Repercussion which for 4-mana can end games. Simply cast the enchantment once you have both in hand, and then cast Blasphemous Act. While Blasphemous Act is on the stack you'll want to sacrifice all your creatures to Goblin Bombardment or Ashnod's Altar or any of your other sac-outlits so Repercussion doesn't kill you once Blasphemous Act resolves. If you do this any opponent with three creatures will take 39 damage which normally is lights-out for them, and anymore creatures than that will definitely be lethal.

Hope my suggestions interest you. Good job crafting the deck by the way. +1 to you my good sir.

I would definitely play Howling Mine & Underworld Dreams to help get some more damage in.

Some other great cards would be : Blasphemous Act, Wheel and Deal, Smoke

You can check my own version of the deck (Seriously, screaming helps... not at all.) for more ideas if you want, +1

StopShot on Alesha - Started From The Graveyard, Now We HUR!

2 days ago

I've been seeing a lot of Alesha decks due to that video. I've had my own for ages, so I can make a couple of recommendations to add more to this deck.

Lands: Geier Reach Sanitarium, good for putting creatures in the graveyard. Ash Barrens, I love this card, because it can color-fix for you and whatever color you choose you can have it enter the battlefield untapped meaning you can use it right away. Maze of Ith, Though it doesn't produce mana you can tap it to stop a big massive stompy creature from smashing into you or you can target your commander so once you've activated the attack trigger you can prevent any damage dealt to it if your opponents all have massive blockers.

Creatures: Big Game Hunter, Intrepid Hero since they remover creatures that are more massive than your commander. BGH works right away while IH given some time can become repeatable removal. Vulturous Aven can give you repeatable card draw. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser can cause shenanigans for your opponents forcing them to swing their massive stompy creatures at your other opponents causing forced trades or force their smaller important creatures into attacking into another opponent's massive blockers effectively killing it. He also provides some card value if you choose to exile cards instead. Balefire Liege also works in fiving your creatures a buff while messing with your opponent's life totals and increasing your own. Peacekeeper is also nice since it can keep your opponent's from attacking and is recurable.

Artifacts: Rakdos Signet, Orzhov Signet, Boros Signet, If you find yourself needing more ramp these can be very helpful. If you want another Goblin Bombardment I'd recommend Blasting Station, since most loops will return the creature after being sacrificed it will untap the Blasting Station so inifinite sacrifices are still possible with it. Noetic Scales Considering most of your creatures will be smaller than your opponents the scales will likely effect your opponents more causing them to bounce and recast their creatures, and it can remove potential blockers. So long as you have 3 or more cards in hand it will never backfire on you.

Enchantments: Animate Dead, Surprisingly you missed a combo. If Leonin Relic-Warder is in your graveyard and you have Goblin Bombardment on the battlefield you can use Animate Dead to bring back the Relic Warder. Relic Warder then exiles Animate Dead. Since Animate Dead leaves the battlefield a sacrifice trigger for the Leonin Relic Warder is put on the stack. While its on the stack and before the Leonin Relic Warder has been sacrificed you can instead sacrifice the relic warder with Goblin Bombardment dealing 1 damage to an opponent. Relic Warder leaves the battlefield returning Animate Dead back onto the battlefield from exile. You can then target the Leonin Relic Warder with it and repeat the process all over again. Dance of the Dead also works as an alternative to Animate Dead. Break Through the Line is utterly evil with Master of Cruelties since it can give him haste and you can give him unblockable before blockers are declared. Phyrexian Arena is also a helpful card since it can give you additional draws on each of your turns. Sinister Concoction allows you to discard a creature card while removing an opponent's creature.

Instants: Path to Exile is a handy creature removal spell. Vengeful Dreams is also a handy removal spell since it allows you to discard creature cards to exile your opponents attacking creatures. Lightning Axe can also allow you to discard a creature to remove a creature as well, but this time at any time. Anguished Unmaking, Chaos Warp, Both are handy permanent removal spells you can run in your colors. Abolish, this card can be a free-cost card if you have a Plains in hand since it can removal an opponents artifact or enchantment when they think you're tapped out. Argivian Find is also useful in case one of your opponents destroys one of your artifacts or enchantments you use in your combos you can return it back to your hand.

Sorceries: Buried Alive is a useful tutor that allows you to put any three of your creature cards from your library into your graveyard. Day of Judgment, Blasphemous Act, Chain Reaction, are all effective boardwipes you can use. Demonic Tutor is also a good tutor effect since it costs less than Diabolic Tutor. Gamble is another fun tutor spell to use and given your odds the more cards you have in hand the less chances it will force you to discard something important. Do or Die is another deliciously vicious card you can also use since it can cut your opponents boardstate in half.

mrfab13 on Trash Boros

Smash to Smithereens isn't good against artefacts, its too slow when facing arcbound, plating and Vault Skirge. Shattering Spree is the card that would want to be in that place.

Grim Lavamancer id reccomend between 1 and 3Goblin Guide should also be there if you have a budget

id say run Blood Moon or Molten Rain for against a land based deck

Torpor Orb posibly 1 in side board

Kor Firewalker or Dragon's Claw if you want to help burn match up

there is no point running both Wrath of God and Anger of the Gods as they both kill your creatures, Blasphemous Act seems very strong if paired with Soulfire Grand Master (lots of life)

look into Abbot of Keral Keep if you want card advantage, i think he would be more powerful than Magma Jet if your looking for card advantage

Young Pyromancer or Monastery Mentor can be pretty nuts.

ZtheGreat on Ishi-Ishi vs. The Universe

5 days ago

We're getting into the range of less-budgety things (assuming that's what you were going for) but Price of Glory, War's Toll, Crawlspace, Tangle Wire really slow opponents down.

Caged Sun and Doubling Cube if you want to win with big mana X spells. Also, Demonfire forces the damage through

Rite of the Raging Storm can help lower life totals.

Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods and Gratuitous Violence. I think these really help what you're trying to do here.

Tormenting Voice, Wild Guess, Cathartic Reunion, Staff of Nin, Loreseeker's Stone and Daretti, Scrap Savant. These are all card draw, and red generally needs all the help it can get. Bonus to Staff, Daretti and Stone for being repeatable. Plus, Staff pings. Daretti also does all the artifact goofiness, which generally gets you some value, even if you don't primarily use artifacts.

Divergent Transformations and Indomitable Creativity are spot removal that people won't hate you for, because it gives them something else.

Blasphemous Act is one of red's best sweepers. It always does work for me.

Journeyer's Kite is repeatable "ramp", and also, Deck Thinning is Deck Winning. Armillary Sphere can ramp you as well.

Isochron Scepter + Last Chance/Final Fortune + Sundial of the Infinite = Infinite turns

Chandra, the Firebrand and Pyromancer's Goggles copy instants and sorceries, which ties back into your "blow people out with X spells" subtheme. Mirari does this as well.

Cascading Cataracts and Darksteel Citadel are great in decks that destroy lands.

Mystifying Maze and Maze of Ith are good stall tactics for a creatureless deck. Glacial Chasm as well.

MegaMatt13 on Wheel Ramp With Kydele and The Vial Smasher

5 days ago

I'm thinking of changing my Kydele/Thrasios deck into Kydele/Vial Smasher. This deck definitely offers inspiration! My current deck is Thrasios and Kydele: Eldrazi Envoys

A couple suggestions: you may wanna include cards that have high CMC but get cost reductions like Blasphemous Act, Dig Through Time, and Treasure Cruise. The new "undaunted" cards like Curtains' Call and Seeds of Renewal could be good too.

Ohthenoises on Dramatic Locust

No worries. To a point I understand the desire to keep avg cmc low but I really feel that it shouldn't be used as a metric for whether a deck is good or bad. That's one of the things that has ALWAYS bugged me about cedh. The first thing people do when evaluating a deck is look at the cmc and dismiss it if it's "too high".

e.g. you have Kozilek but you aren't ever casting it. It's literally there so you can discard it to reshuffle for with your commander. In essence it's cmc is but it adds to your deck's cmc.

Also, cards like Blasphemous Act or anything with Delve is going to artificially bump your cmc more than is deserved. (When was the last time you played Treasure Cruise or Dig Through Time for full price)

StopShot on Alesha Multi

It's not badly formatted at all.

For lands I'd advise you try running Clifftop Retreat and Isolated Chapel since they can be very helpful about mana fixing and will likely not come in tapped. Also considering you run quite a bit of swamps I'd recommend Tainted Peak and Tainted Field over Temple of Malice and Temple of Silence since they always come in untapped. Another helpful land to consider is Ash Barrens which can grab any of your colors and has that Basic Land come in untapped. Geier Reach Sanitarium would also help with putting creatures from your hand into your graveyard while drawing cards.

For Artifacts and Enchantments I'd recommend Panharmonicon and Flameshadow Conjuring which both can double all your enter the battlefield triggers. Since you also have lots of ways of recurring and sacrificing little creatures I'd recommend Grave Pact and/or Dictate of Erebos which can really put some hurting on your opponents. For equipment you can also run Hero's Blade and Obsidian Battle-Axe which will auto-equip to Alesha making her power larger so its more difficult for your opponents to block her.

For Instants and Sorceries I recommend Path to Exile, Anguished Unmaking, Wear / Tear, and Return to Dust which gives your deck more flexibility over removing your opponents permanents as well as Blasphemous Act, Buried Alive, Vandalblast, which also help give your deck an edge. Also I'd recommend running Steelshaper's Gift over Open the Armory since it costs and your deck doesn't run any auras.

For creatures I'd recommend Big Game Hunter for creature removal, Undercity Informer for self-mill, and Vulturous Aven for repeatable card draw.

This deck looks pretty good and I hope you found my review helpful.
