Boiling Seas Discussion

Alledzebu on Trynn & Silvar, Dangerous Bonds.

Foremost, I would first like to commend you for the solid effort attempt at optimizing this deck, you got some very interesting win conditions that I personally enjoy.

Now, with that said, I would like to point certain means by which I believe we can improve this deck even further:

1)The deck has few responses, if I may recommend the following: -Mana Tithe -Rebuff the Wicked -Pyroblast -Silence = this one is a "must" imo. -Angel's Grace -Red Elemental Blast -Ranger-Captain of Eos = also a tutor.

2)We can add more control, because the high cmc of the commanders makes you slow, since such is the case, why not slowing our opponents instead? -Authority of the Consuls -Blind Obedience -Deafening Silence -Terminate

3)Mess with their hands: -Duress -Thoughtseize -Inquisition of Kozilek

4)tutors to consider: -Imperial Recruiter he is human -Recruiter of the Guard human too -insert famous black tutors like diabolic intent etc...

5)burst ramp to consider: this cards for a cost can produce tons of mana in one turn... -Culling the Weak -Dark Ritual -Treasonous Ogre

6) key cards that can search thru all your deck your win condition: just be sure to have at least one piece of the combo in hand already and enough life to pay... -Plunge into Darkness -Tainted Pact -Demonic Consultation -ad nauseum this are insanely powerful cards...

7) Karmic Guide instead of Sun Titan she is less expensive mana-wise, and same eff almost...

8) there are a few better and unilateral land destruction effects out there like: Boil Boiling Seas

9) now that this new additions have vastly reduced the overall CMC of the deck, you can now have the luxury of cutting lands proportionate to reduction of cmc average :) depending how much cheaper your deck is, the less lands u can put in it... you could go all the way down to 34 lands, now am concerned with the quality of land base, so let me suggest a handful to you: -Forbidden Orchard -all 3 shock lands -all 3 pain lands -City of Brass -Luxury Suite -Ancient Tomb -Tarnished Citadel -Phyrexian Tower -Graven Cairns -Castle Ardenvale

10) add Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker he can create infinite copies with bell ringer and he can also create an infinite combo with silvar and fiend hunter...

-you need silvar and fiend hunter (with any card banished by his eff it doesn't matter here)...

-then summon kiki jiki, create copy of fiend hunter...

-new copy of fiend hunter banishes kiki giki...

-sacrifice the copy fiend hunter to silvar...

-kiki giki return untapped...

-create a new copy of fiend hunter...

-banish kiki giki again...

-rinse and repeat...

Let's replace Boil and Boiling Seas with Chaos Warp and Fork .

Hate blue? You came to the right format. Also Boil is probably strictly better than Boiling Seas.

Also I'm unsure if this can even beat UW control. Nothing in here beats and everything dies to Supreme Verdict or Terminus. Gutteral response and choke are quite good, but protection from blue isn't a useful ability.

Yiggler on Quicksilver Evaporation

Yeah, I know that. It's why I describe Boil and Boiling Seas as Armageddon instead of "one-sided Armageddon", though the other island-turners are there to try and make it more one-sided. The goal is to stick a walker while the foe has a negligible board, then boil the islands away and then just win off of the planeswalker in the rebuilding turns.

What decks do you go go against, Choke, Carpet of Flowers, Tsunami, Boil, Boiling Seas, Flashfires, Omen of Fire and Ruination are all good options depending on the group, and Magus of the Moon, Blood Moon, Blood Sun are also great cards

Not sure if I'm seeing right, but You mention that You hate Blue and don't run Boiling Seas or Boil? Or at least Scald or Curse of Marit Lage.

MagicalHacker on Anti Azami lady of scrolls

If I were him, I'd fear Surrak Dragonclaw the most. Get some ramp, and go the beatdown path with creatures with ETBs. Azami can't counter them, and if she bounces them, you get the ETBs again.

As for stopping Azami from drawing lots of cards, you can find cards like Uba Mask and Shared Fate on MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Control Cards.

Since you know they're playing mono blue, then feel free to play Choke, Boil, Boiling Seas, and more cards like it I found on this cool reference I used when I built a similarly themed deck: All Hate, No Bears (Radha Primer).

Best of luck!
