Bonfire of the Damned Discussion

Tapped Out just ate a hella-long response I had been working on. Very frustrating.

Short version is:

1) Definitely need to find a way to speed up/slow your opponent down. It's not Budget, but Blood Moon and a little shuffling of your land base might serve that purpose well.

2) Need to find a way to survive common board-sweepers like Pyroclasm , Anger of the Gods , Electrickery , Bonfire of the Damned , etc. without having to rebuild from scratch. The best options that come to my mind right now are in green, but I'm sure someone else will have ideas to offer up.

3) White opens up all of the best sideboard cards (like Stony Silence , Rest in Peace (not for you) and Leyline of Sanctity . With all the graveyard effects in the format right now, you should definitely put a set Relic of Progenitus in your sideboard as well.

4) Oketra's Monument definitely seems to have a place in this deck.

5) I absolutely hate it when people come in and start giving advice that's based on completely reworking the entire deck rather than trying to keep with the framework I'm clearly trying to establish, but it occurs to me that this deck might benefit more from green than red. It'll ramp up your mana base and offer broader protections like Heroic Defiance and Beast Within . Just a thought.

Hope that helps some!

All the cards pskinn01 says are great here are some more

Mission Briefing - basically give you a Scry 2 (in a different form) and flashback for any instant or sorcery

Turn to Frog - Great way to get rid of those annoying 10 power or 12 toughness creatures or those that are indestructible. Plus just being able to things into frogs are fun

Deep Freeze - Similar to Turn to Frog but it becomes a 0/4 wall instread of a 0/1 frog however it until the aura leaves the creature instead of until the end of the turn

The Mirari Conjecture Ik its not an instant or sorcery but it really good two flashback and a copyinstant or sorcery spell as actually won me games

Summary Dismissal - Board wipe for Blue

Mystic Confluence - Great Utility

Sinister Sabotage - Counterspell with Scry 1 (in a different form) sure why not?

Cryptic Command - Again Nice Utility

Frantic Search - A free draw power card

Disallow - An extremely powerful counter spell

Kira, Great Glass-Spinner - Not a instant, sorcery or wizard but free counter once each turn per creature yes please.

Aether Gale - a different version of Cyclonic Rift many forgot about this card

Rewind - A free counter spell

Counterspell -Every blue deck has it

Mana Drain -If you have it or can afford/willing to buy cough up the money for it.

Pull from Tomorrow -My favorite draw spell

As Foretold - A slower Omniscience actually wont draw you as much aggro as fast

Omniscience - Play whatever you want for free with no drawbacks other than the big target your painting on your back

Starstorm , Star of Extinction , Anger of the Gods or Hour of Devastation - All great Red board wipes

Burn from Within - Deals with pesky indestructible

Keranos, God of Storms - Again not a Instant, Sorcery or wizard but a potentially free Lightning Bolt each turn why not?

Thousand-Year Storm - same as the last effect of The Mirari Conjecture only it stays around

Blastfire Bolt - 5 damage and equipment destruction

Chemister's Trick - Could save your life if backed into a corner or could back your opponent in one.

Countervailing Winds - If you have a lot of cheap cards that makes this card super nice but i would save this card for the opponents big play as the opponent either loses the card or has to waste the rest of their to save it leaving you able to counter attack next if you survive.

Fissure and Crush -Red kills spells

Firemind's Foresight - Search spell for instants or sorcery spells

Hornswoggle and Spell Swindle - Counterspells that give you one time mana dorks yes

Apex of Power a Free cast cards from exile card

Banefire damage that can't be prevented sure

Bonfire of the Damned , Burn at the Stake and Devil's Play -Personal favorites of mine

By Force - a great artifact kill spell

Crack the Earth - well you get hit as well is a quick way to get rid of a pesky card

Rekindled Flame - A burn spell that can potentially come back over ad over again

Reforge the Soul - Need a new hand?

And many more but i don't want this to get to bloated (maybe to late for that.) so i'll end it here. hope these help

Please link all cards in your question using double square brackets.

Intet, the Dreamer

Bonfire of the Damned


Intet's ability ONLY allows you to play that card without paying it's mana cost. It does not allow you to play it via any other mechanism.

Well I've uh never actually won with this deck. The people I play with just have more money and more cards but the main idea is to get out Quest for Pure Flame and then either go for Fireball , Bonfire of the Damned or Incite Rebellion to try and do as much damage as I can. The closet I got was able to toss out 12 Fireball each dealing 14 damage but then someone played Teferi's Protection and one shot me the next turn.

I really do appreciate all these suggestions, over all it is meant to be a kind of fun deck for modern that is focused more around the fun of playing the game over just out right winning every time, or most every time. I will take in a lot of these suggestions to improve this nutty and fun budget list though, thank you guys for your thoughts. (also Bonfire of the Damned is there for the creature board wipe, I know that it's inconsistent for the miracle cost but I enjoy it)

gergonthedestroyer on Mizzix of the Izmagnus, I'll burn!

4 months ago

I really like some of your ideas to produce mana and will be incorporating them into my version. It's Mizzix in the Mix if you would like to look and see if my ideas work for you.

I went more "all in" on the experience counters and have found that colored mana is at a premium. Therefore, I changed my counter spells from things like Counterflux, Dissipate, or Spell Crumple to things like Condescend, Power Sink, or Syncopate. That way I only need one blue open and I always get an experience counter. Mindswipe gives added burn value, and I like Spell Burst over Forbid as the game lock.

I also tried to replace creatures with spells where possible, so Archaeomancer turned into Mystic Retrieval and Recall, and Lunar Mystic turned into Whispers of the Muse. I also found that effects like Guttersnipe and Electrostatic Field didn't work as well for me as just having another burn spell. This may just personal style though.

Blasphemous Act takes out Mizzix with everything else. You could try Bonfire of the Damned, Sudden Demise, or even Rolling Thunder for some board control. Fanning the Flames looks even better in your list than mine I think.

You are right about there being a problem if Mizzix gets too expensive. I added Inexorable Tide to keep the experience counters coming even with Mizzix in the Command Zone. That allows you to just set up for one big turn where you recast him and win.

@cmskinny imo Skred is really really good but I think what makes it fair is just the fact that its extremely narrow with its snow permanent requirements/check...sometimes Ya just don't have as many Snow-Covered Mountain as ya wprotection from red,indestructible, hexproof/Shroud keep it in check too.

I dig it StoryArcher I think Bonfire of the Damned for sure is worth at least playtesting ty ty
