Blazing Volley Discussion

Calibus101 on Rhonas and Dragon Aggro

1 week ago

Looking at the deck I have a few criticisms. You have a lot of creatures doing different things, which can be bad in the end. For example, Champion of Rhonas ability to cheat cards in really foils the effect of Tyrant of Valakut Since the Surge cost is the effect you should be after with it. Other cards face similar issues Heart-Piercer Manticore isn't really worth adding to the deck since none of your creatures are expendable enough, asides from itself due to the Embalm effect. Naga Vitalist and Beastcaller Savant are both very useful manadorks but in this deck it doesn't really help as your mana spread is 2-4 drop ranges. It's useful, but not completely necessary. I would rather fit in x3 Channeler Initiates to fill instead. 2-drops that get bigger every time you dork. Sin Prodder seems to work against you. As you have no means of graveyard play to really make it shine. And as a result any opponent with decks with lifegain just stop you from having anything. Sylvan Advocate is not a card that helps your deck in any way. There is no Land Creatures in your deck. The 4/5 looks nice but as a late game drop it's not helping your game too much. Outland Boar isn't doing your deck much either. I would replace it with Greater Sandwurm It's pretty much the same card, it hits harder and you can cheat it in with Champion of Rhonas and if we think along those lines Oracle's Vault would be a great add with Lifecrafter's Bestiary to get to Scry the top of your Library to gauge what you'll cheat or if you're willing to deal with the exile if you can't afford. Voltaic Brawler doesn't work either. You're unable to supply it with more energy counters so it's really only effective for two turns. Not really worth it in my opinion.

You're going to need more Champion of Rhonas, Ahn-Crop Crasher (To stop blockers from your beatdowns), one more Glorybringer, and one more Soul-Scar Mage(it can synergize well with a large portion of your deck.)

Creatures of note that I recommend adding or looking into:

Combat Celebrant - It gets you another combat phase and untaps your already exerted creatures. Yay! So much aggro!

Honored Hydra It's an unreal powerhouse, something that honestly would pair very well with Heart-Piercer Manticore Because of the Lower Embalm cost to return it. And 6/6 Trample just ends games.

Scaled Behemoth 6/7 Hexproof. Need I say more? Well other than that it's an amazing card to just cheat in with Champion of Rhonas.

Aetherwind Basker may cost 7 but it has trample and gains Energy like mad. You could even run Voltaic Brawler if you want to use this creature, and you can cheat it in too! And You can frequently use Lightning Runners (if you want to add it) and its effect to great use. More combat phases means more hurting your opponent.

Lightning Runner as stated before.

Khenra Charioteer 3/3 3cost Trampler that gives trample to other creatures you control? I'd consider this one big time.

That was creatures. Now for Instants/Sorceries/Enchantments/Artifacts

Heart of Kiran isn't helping, you are forced to tap a creature to Crew it and as an aggro deck with so many large beasties, it's not much worth in your deck besides its very low cost and flying. Heck, there's not enough creatures you'd want to man the thing such as pilots who do things when they are tapped. I would go for some card cheating such as Oracle's Vault instead.

You're lacking a fair portion of Instants and Sorceries to make better use of Soul-Scar Mage But that's fine as you have a portion of creatures that deal damage to opponents creatures, But you want to take advantage of the mage through Instants and sorceries. Monstrous Onslaught, Chandra's Revolution, Hungry Flames, Furious Reprisal, Pyromancer's Assault, Devour in Flames, Boulder Salvo, Blazing Volley, more Sweltering Suns

I'd Run Blazing Volley since it does damage to each creature opponent controls. Paired with Soul-Scar Mage it would become devastating. Anything that Burns for 4 is the sweetspot for damage, as many newer creatures seem to have that much toughness. and it badly cripples any creature with higher toughness if Soul-Scar is out.

I would also look into finding more cards that untap creatures you control as it would really power up your game.

I don't think there is anything as effective as Stony Silence or Blazing Volley.

If being lucky enough to play Stony Silence on turn 2 doesn't do it for you. Slam it turn 1. Blazing Volley might be the cheapest way of dealing with a board full of x/1s.

elonth on Jund Counters (Budget?) [3-0 @ FNM]

Blazing Volley is just stone unplayble even if you had a scarmage out. Magma Spray/shock would be far more useful. So would Radiant Flames you can't make the "budget" excuse for the first 2.

You need to be running Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons Shes worth less than some of the dual lands you are running.

Shed Weakness just isn't good outside of limited. the one that removes all counters and gives hexproof actually does something by protecting your guys Hapatra's Mark

Manticore of the gauntlet is just not constructive playable unless you are playing mono red burn. You'd be better off with 2 copies of hapatra. who actually works with your decks strategy.

Way to many 3 drops. Absolutely way to many. you need to fix your curve or you will find games where you literally do nothing until turn 3. Then the creature you play instantly dies because they could keep removal up to your empty board.

Kill the green cartouche or kill the 3 black ones. Yes i know you want to make ambition work. but if you are investing 2 cards and 5 mana just to get an extra unfocused edict effect you are pushing yourself behind on board.

If you want to cycle the trials you should be running the red cartouche since it only costs you 1 mana, will help you get mana through. On that same note the red trial is very good, yet alas you are to thick at 3.

a 4/3 lifelinker for 3 is pretty good. but its not amazingly constructed playable. You should replace him with Channeler Initiate this not only helps fix your curve it allows you to ramp into 4-5 mana much sooner so that you can actually cast more than 1 spell a turn with all your 3 drops.

Here's a thing: We oppened Soul-Scar Mage as well as Nest of Scarabs and blazing volley. She said it would be worth it to play all 4 cards, even though they barely do anything on there own (the other damaging spell we had was fling and i rather not fire that on creatures). What do you say, Argy? Worth it or not? (Our only 2 -1/-1 cards were the Scarab and the 3mana "Distribute 2 counters").

Silvers suffer from a terminal condition called "glassy" thus field wipes such as Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Black Sun's Zenith and even blazing volley can decimate your army at very little cost. Therefore consider buffing them up a bit with your own Elesh Norn, Megantic Sliver, or Always Watching . I will always recommend Coat of Arms for hard tribal like this.

STMS on AKH Jund Discard

you need to be playing Grapple with the Past, the ability to dig for Soul-Scar Mage in a deck this dependant on him is to good to pass up.

You should be maindecking Fatal Push, without push you can't beat Heart of Kiran. I know it might end up banned but still.

Merciless Javelineer could just as easily be Ruthless Sniper right? Fix the curve.

Bedlam Reveler needs more spells right? If you add the grapples you are probably fine.

for cutsblazing volley is super bad without the mage, wander in death is really slow, and neonate seems worse then other 1 drops although I might be wrong on that one.

As always good cast, hope this helps.
