Gotreck on Fire in the hole

4 days ago

Greetings markbeloit, thank you for your comment. I used to run Panharmonicon in my deck but it got insta-removed everytime i played it so i think it makes the deck slower. Besides, i only have 8 creatures (and no artifacts) that have etb effects so i dont think i could take good advantage of it. Regarding Braid of Fire i think i would rather use the mana for an x-spell instead of purphoros ability. I will have it in consideration although i rarelly have any mana left for the cumulative upkeep.

Panharmonicon is brutal in Purphoros. Strongly recommend it.

Braid of Fire may also be a card to consider, though I am unsure of this. So it makes increasing amounts of during you upkeep. How to spend this? Dump it into Purphoros's activated ability, pumping your creatures.

Thanks for the warning, I confess I did not remember that part when building the deck. Luckily it's just inconvinience that I can work around.

Here is some cards I think you could remove: Braid of Fire, Ghostly Prison, Rakdos's Return, Fire Covenant, Debt to the Deathless, sanctum seeker, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Falkenrath Gorger and Bloodlord of Vaasgoth.

I tried to keep in mind what you are trying to do do but maybe it's too much? To my eye your deck is Vampire tribal with comboes with a lot of removal, return from the grave thingies and pillowfort.

For the lands, that's for you to decide and test out what works but I would suggest at least to add the mardu colored pain lands: Caves of Koilos, Sulfurous Springs and Battlefield Forge. If you make a lot of tokens Westvale Abbey  Flip would work, also I would use Temple of the False God.

its good but you need more synergy with your commander for example, Heartstone and Braid of Fire are both great cards to use your ability more

How do you not have Braid of Fire? :D Always goes in my olivia decks. I also love Neko-Te with her. Ping stuff that will no longer untap.

These 2 decks were originally based off yours, actually, so may give you some ideas:

Olivia has had enough of your games

Satyr Firedancer great with Repercussion.

Magus of the Moon blood moon #2
