Serum Visions seems excellent here.

Also, have you considered some wincons rooted in Miracle, such as Entreat the Angels , Temporal Mastery for general value, Terminus and Banishing Stroke are both nice control pieces, or Bonfire of the Damned is a decent sweeper.

I have no idea what's played in legacy. I am just a humble, broke Johnny.

First thing I'll suggest additions

  • mana ramp: Lotus Cobra - land etb you add one mana of any color - pushes your ramp faster

Amulet of Vigor - if a permanent you control etbs tapped, untap it. Not only ramps you faster, but gets past those pesky all your things come in tapped crud.

Exploration - you may play an additional land each turn, only . Very few things are more satisfying than having 7 lands turn 3 while everyone else is just putting down their third land.

Boundless Realms - search for as many basic lands as lands you control

Scapeshift - search for as many lands (basic or not) as you sacrifice

Kodama's Reach - you need a bunch of ramp spells to act with in case you don't have lord windgrace or he becomes too expensive to cast

Demonic Tutor - search your library for a card

Vampiric Tutor - search your library for a card

Beseech the Queen - search your library for a card

Summoner's Pact - pay or lose at your upkeep

Chord of Calling - search for or less CMC creature

Tooth and Nail - search for two creatures or put two creatures onto the battlefield from your hand

Rude Awakening - all lands you control become 2/2 creatures or you untap all lands or both

three of the five panoramas: The other two only fetch you one of the lands

Jund Panorama - search for any of the three basic land types you need

Grixis Panorama - search for swamp or mountain

Naya Panorama - search for mountain or forest

three of the temples:

Temple of Malady - BG scry 1.

Temple of Malice - BR scry 1.

Temple of Abandon - GR scry 1.

Things to do with

Fireball - x damage to creature or player

Crater's Claws - x damage to creature or player

Rolling Thunder - x damage to creature or player - can do more targets

Banefire - x damage to creature or player

Bonfire of the Damned xx to do x damage to tgt player and each creature he controls

Torment of Hailfire - choice of losing 3 life, sacrifice a nonland permanent, or discard a card - hilarious for huge numbers of x, and can swing the game beyond anyone recovering

Consume Spirit - x loss of life and x gain of life for you

Suffer the Past - x loss of life for x exiled cards from tgt player's graveyard. Kills their recursion and them

Dark Salvation - xx for x zombies and making a creature -x/-x until end of turn.

I like x spell decks so much. I run Red Green x spell and hydra in modern. How does it do? Or is it online until you get it tweaked?


Red Sun's Zenith - I can't recommend this card enough. Reusable exile that also shuffles the library. Bonfire of the Damned - 1 sided board wipe. Primal Amulet  Flip You are running unbound flourishing it would be good to have doublers

These are just a few i'll look at the deck a little later when im not being bombarded by kids. Keep up the good work. What is your budget and what combos is there most people won't see?

Ebro i understand why Bonfire of the Damned might "seem" good here since its a one sided board wipe, but the double X is a major pain since the spell will only deal half the damage of a burn spell that only had a single X in the cost. even with the miracle cost, miracle is useless if the card is in my opening hand or if i draw it during a turn i'd rather cast something else.

This is an amazing build, aside from maybe Bonfire of the Damned I can’t think of a single recommendation to make it better. 10-10 well done

Well sylvannos, I chose Gauntlet of Power … But I still need your thoughts on the Following:

* Aria of Flame : Your opponents won't gain anything most likely, & can be used as constant burn every time you play an Instant/Sorcery, & every time you add more Counters; Every. Last. Bit of them.

* Magmatic Force : A huge Hulking menace that burns on your opponent's turns even.

* Conflagrate , Bonfire of the Damned , & Avacyn's Judgment : I'm trying to find stuff that doesn't target; & cuts, but would these be good X-Burns, or are they crap; & several others in addition?

* Browbeat & Risk Factor : Card Advantage if nobody gets pinged, & regardless ping if so. Also, Risk Factor can be used a second time via Jump-Start (Grumbles to thyself about their youth...)

& Do I have too many X-Burns? Maybe not enough Copying? Lack of Mana Ramp/Card Advantage? Not enough stuff that happens every turn while they are in play? I'm just curious.

I'm still contemplating about my lie about being a , & not realizing my true status... I just wish somebody helped me on...

Is somebody capable of helping me on this? Or is there such an impossibility it's mentally wrong?

@sylvannos: Jeez, so many One-times; several remain I'm unaware of. Anyways, 3 Opponents would be the dead minimum, but since I've no real playgroup (Much less a Gameshop for such, as well as the fact I'm emulating the idea of an average board over 4 Players; including myself. I threw in a crapton of X-Burns; but I may have left out 3 key cards for that: Conflagrate , Bonfire of the Damned , & Avacyn's Judgment . Any of these X-Burns worth it, or am I using too many as it is? Also curious about the following: Browbeat , & Risk Factor . They're one use, but puts opponents on a gamble; throw in enough damage, maybe they'll think twice about damaging themselves to prevent me from drawing 3 cards. I suppose it's a "No." for the latter two?
