Bolt of Keranos Discussion

BahamutPRME on Casual Greek Deck

11 months ago

So I'm trying to make a deck for my friend for his birthday and he likes Greek Mythology, specifically Poseidon, Hades, and Zues in this order. I'm wanting to stay in the Theros block and have 3 deck ideas but I need some advice and criticism because I don't want to make him a weak deck.

Here are what I've made:

The first one is using Heliod because I made this first and forgot there is a god that looks like zues but in MTG Heliod is the "Leader" or Highest ranking or whatever.

The second one is using Keranos and white humans so its 4 colors instead of 3.

The third one is sticking to the block and theme but also sticking to heroic and scry.

I have always been bad about including a safe amount of land in my decks so that is something i really need help with. I also wasn't sure if this was the best way to show the decks or if i should've just copy and pasted each text.

Thank you!

Greek Deck 1

Greek Deck 2

Greek Deck 3

Sorry for the long post. Wasn't sure how to do this.

Use Goblin Guide it is OP. Do you really need Bazaar Trader and Abrade? Molten Rain is better than Craterize. Put in 4 Goblin Grenade. Put in 4 Smash to Smithereens. Instead of Bolt of Keranos I would run Magma Jet or Lava Spike.

HAHAHA!! That's pretty good. I took out the Wandering Fumarole in favor of Temple of Epiphany because of the scry effect. I think doing a 2-2 split is the happy medium. I have the 26 lands in here because of the high amount of instants and spells. Snapcaster Mage seems super good, just not the most economically efficient idea. So 2 Snapcaster Mage, 2 Torrential Gearhulk, and 2 Keranos, God of Storms for creatures? Also, what are your opinions on Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip? It would flip relatively fast because of the number of spells, then allow me to tap for red, and get constant Bolt of Keranos whenever I need the damage.

Since you have stuff to manipulate counters, you may like Thief of Blood(it'll also sap any counters for any pesky opponent artifacts and such)

Butcher of Malakir should be in there too.

If you have the money, for 2-5$ you could pick up Lightning Bolt over Bolt of Keranos, but for what it's worth you're better off with things like Blasphemous Act for board clear.

I'd drop Bloodcrazed Neonate myself. Everlasting Torment turns Olivia into 'give creatures -1/-1 counters and buff herself', as does Fists of the Demigod

Deck looks fun!:D

Love this concept. I have been looking for another storm style deck and here it pops up. I am not super huge into pauper anymore but this is an awesome start. Just listing a few fun burns since you have so much red producing spells: Bolt of Keranos, Chain Lightning for side in against non-red, Disintegrate for that red mana dump, and Firebolt because it is just fun! Sorry, I know you probably want to stick with instants as much as possible for better thermo sequencing but these are just thoughts.

I might get rid of Lose Calm. It would be fun, but it doesn't fit the burn theme. Though I wouldn't care if the creature died and it would be swinging with double! IDK.

So maybe Lose Calm, Bolt of Keranos, Arc Lightning, and Fiery Temper for Torch Song, Brightflame, Cleansing Beam, and Wojek Embermage?
