Shimtalia on Kickin' it Old School

Yeah, So...In the last 24 hours, I did a bunch of work on this deck, proxied a bunch of it up, took it for a spin in front of a goldfish bowl, and I discovered I needed to make some changes.

For one, I had too many kicker spells. They are easily the weakest part of the deck, vital and important that they may be. Two, I needed some card draw. Three, well, just some other thoughts that came to me while I was working...

In:

Blood Clock - Breath of Darigaaz - Chandra's Ignition - Decimate - Keen Sense - Loxodon Warhammer - Momentous Fall - Opal Palace - Rishkar's Expertise - Sunbird's Invocation - Vigor(I want to try this, though it is the only expensive card I don't already own for the deck, it's worth more than the rest of what I don't have combined...)

Out:

Blessings of Nature(too many +1/+1 too fast makes too much of a target) - Cloudstone Curio - Gnarlid Pack - Grafted Exoskeleton(yes, it's a massive kill enabler, but also a massive kill me sign) - Grunn, the Lonely King - Horned Kavu - Increasing Savagery(see Blessings) - Skitter of Lizards - Thicket Elemental - Mountain - Forest

Crater's Claws instead of Red Sun's ZenithEarthquake is still good in this deck in addition to Subterranean Tremors . Maybe both?Flame Slash is cheap one-mana creature kill.Magmatic Insight Card draw?Breath of Darigaaz Burns the field, leaves your creatures and deals damage to opponent.Wheel of Fortune A beast of a card-draw spell, used when your hand is empty.The Flame of KeldDangerous Wager Card draw.Browbeat would actually work well here.Skullscorch something violent to do on turn 2.Pyroclasm Amazing, procs your dragon egg.Mizzium Mortars Yup, more burn.

If you're only keeping the best of your X burn and dropping the rest, then here's some ideas:

Fiery Confluence- it's reasonable enough without FaS, but with them, you can choose the deal 2 damage to each opponent mode three times. 6 damage to each opponent for only 2RR, and you gain 18, which isn't awful (well, it's more damage than Comet Storm did in my explanation at 9 mana lol, but Comet Storm is better at taking out specific creatures I suppose).

Depending on what your opponents play, Deflecting Palm may be worth a look. If they win by attacking with creatures or by using AEtherflux Reservoir (I saw a Grixis Storm deck lose to a Naya pile because the Naya pile had Deflecting Palm when Storm paid 150 to kill everyone. It was really amusing to see, though that doesn't mean the card is good). If everyone wins via alternate win methods like Laboratory Maniac and the like, then you may not want to use Palm.

Lightning Helix is better than what I mentioned above, by the way. It deals 9 damage and gains 6 life. You gain life from both lifelink and from the spell gaining you 3 life, so you'll get two FaS triggers. I wasn't thinking too hard about it when I spelled it out earlier.

Breath of Darigaaz might be worthwhile. 3R to deal 4 damage to each player/creature without flying seems reasonable.

Chaos Warp is reasonable removal for your colors. Sometimes your opponents might win big off of it, but if you're playing against decks low on creatures, then odds are they will hit a fair number of instants/sorceries and you'll have tucked an annoying card with no repercussion. I think you used to run it but now it's gone for one reason or another lol.

With the sheer number of instants/sorceries you run, it may be worthwhile to try out Mizzix's Mastery. Not so great with the X spells, but it'd let you re-cast removal, burn, etc., from the graveyard.

Suns_Champion on Regarding Firesong and Sunspeaker...

Thanks Spirit_Logan :)

BMHKain I want to say up front that I do not play cEDH, so some of my thoughts may be irrelevant or wrong.

I honestly doubt Fire & Sun can make it in cEDH. They're a great general, perhaps the best Boros has ever had, but Boros still doesn't have the draw and ramp power needed to consistently win turns 3, 4, and 5.

They also cost 6 to cast, which is a huge middle finger from wizards to Boros EDH players. Whatever. /end rant. Take opinions with grain of salt.

1) Okay, though Galvanoth can only hit 1/3 of the deck so you might want Sensei's Divining Top.

2) maybe, or maybe not. Kinda depends on what you like. Mark of Asylum and Repercussion are really good though.

3) You seem to have the best ones already... X spells. Some cheaper ones like Breath of Darigaaz, Fiery Confluence, and Flamebreak might help.

4) Probably not. You waste the creature-centric abilities and it's too slow of cEDh if I'm not mistaken.

5) Dawn Charm, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Samite Ministration, Tithe and Radiate could all be considered.

6) Stoneforge Mystic, Weathered Wayfarer, Generator Servant, Steelshaper's Gift, Reforge the Soul, Arcane Lighthouse, Scavenger Grounds, Inventors' Fair, and Blasphemous Act should be considered.

7) with the curve at 2.55...33 maybe? Not sure, as a normal EDH player I don't go below 36 usually.

Not sure about the staple list... can you explain that further?

Again, not a competitive player by any means. Can't wait to see more brews for this awesome new commander!

multimedia no worries! Thank you so so much for the help!

I checked out your elf deck, awesome coding! And is that Quenya from Lord of the Rings I see? Respect!

I was wondering if you'd be okay if I posted your comments and my following response on my deck page; I like to have everything in one place and the comments don't delete there as they do on the wall. let me know!

Now, to respond to all the suggestions! Again thank you for the advice!

First off I'd like to mention that I'm not a huge fan of most X-spells, and I wanted to stray away from them somewhat because I know that's what many people are going to to with F&S. I understand the value of X-spells with F&S is huge here, but they kinda need a ton of mana pumped into them, and I don't think Boros can consistently do that. In situations where I can't get Neheb, the Eternal to stick they become less effective, even if X = 10 and I gain 100+ life, it doesn't seem worth it to me because now I've just pissed off the other 3-5 players and will probably be crippled by the clapback. Second, I'm trying to focus on Sunforger and my combos a lot more, as I think that is what will make my deck stand out when all is said and done. So Combo/sunforger first, value/x-spells second. I don't want to strip stuff away from my Sunforger for more X-spells because I feel like I'll want Sunforger goodness more. So there's some thoughts that will hopefully explain my choices and why I will or won't take some of your suggestion :)

Hopefully all that makes some sense.

Again I definitely see the reasoning for all of the suggestions. Just not the direction I want to go :)

Again thank you so so so much for the advice! Let me know if I can post it on the deck.

I don't want you to think I don't appreciate all the help and suggestions, I really do! It's just that this time around I have a different vision for my deck that a lot of these can't fit into. Thanks again friend!

Hey Suns_Champion, I didn't forget about you, you asked for my help :) Playtesting outside of TappedOut and writing about the new Dominaria spoilers at Radiant Elves has taken up the majority of my time for Magic.


Your Super Smash Boros | Firesong & Sunspeaker EDH deck looks great, lots of good cards and interactions. Aetherflux Reservoir is a nice secondary strategy that doesn't completely need Firesong to be a win condition, but becomes much better with Firesong.

Some suggestions to consider:

  • Doubling Cube: double all red, white and colorless mana in your mana pool, great with X damage burn spells.
  • Thran Dynamo: combines very well with Cube, an excellent source of colorless mana the turn it ETB.

  • Earthquake: win condition, X damage to all creatures and players
  • Rolling Earthquake: win condition, X damage to all creatures and players, From the Vault: Annihilation version
  • Breath of Darigaaz: 4 damage to all creatures and players for four mana kicked, doesn't kill 6 toughness Firesong
  • Hour of Devastation: 5 damage to all creatures and Planeswalkers, doesn't kill 6 toughness Firesong
  • Price of Progress: lots of damage to each player for two mana
  • Acidic Soil: lots of damage to each player for three mana

  • Gamble: unconditional tutor
  • Faithless Looting: early game draw
  • Tormenting Voice: early game draw
  • Wild Guess: early game draw
  • Survival Cache: draw that's good with all the life gain from Firesong
  • Winds of Change: can draw a lot of cards for only one mana

  • Reiterate: crazy spell with Cube and other ramp because of buyback, double an X damage burn spell

  • Mark of Asylum: protect your creatures from your own burn spells especially Firesong
  • Furnace of Rath: double the damage by burn spells, makes X damage to each creature and each player burn spells ridiculous, major life gain


Doubling Cube can double all white, red and colorless mana to cast huge X damage spells which can be amazing with Firesong. Cube is the card that can give you the ability to cast Firesong or Reservoir and other burn spells all in the same turn. In fact with Cube, Firesong and Earthquake you can go off doing a ton of damage to all players and gaining a lot of life the turn you play Firesong.

I suggest adding more X damage to all creatures and all players burn spells. I think the power you're looking for with Firesong is in these spells because they can massively hurt all your opponents and not you because of lifelink. These Earthquakes don't target which is huge for the mana cost because you're damaging all creature and players at the same time not just one. Comet Storm is one of these, but it's one of the higher mana cost options. I suggest adding more because these spells give you the most bang for the mana.

Reiterate and Cube is a great combination because you will have mana to buyback Reiterate which is really good with large burn spells and a main strategy of wanting to cast instants and sorceries.

Gamble is an amazing tutor in Commander because the graveyard is very much a resource in this format. I suggest adding more cheap draw.

Mark of Asylum is busted with Firesong you can be less afraid to cast any burn spell that damages all creatures because the spell will not do damage to Firesong, but it will do damage to every other creature you don't control gaining you a ton of life.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Expedition Map
  • Book of Rass
  • Basilisk Collar
  • Swiftfoot Boots
  • Strionic Resonator
  • Hedron's Archive

  • Painter's Servant
  • Thalia's Lancers
  • Stonehewer Giant
  • Brass Squire
  • Imperial Recruiter
  • Weathered Wayfarer
  • Fire Servant
  • Generator Servant

  • Teferi's Protection
  • Tithe
  • Open the Armory

I'm suggesting to add quite a few more burn spells that can damage all creatures therefore it makes sense to cut a large amount of creatures because they will consistently die to these spells. I think these burn spells are much more powerful with Firesong than these creatures are.

Good luck with your deck.

It's really unfortunate that Soulfire Grand Master is technically blue...

Suggestions! Since you are playing this very Neheb like, which is the most fun way to play it, I'll use my deck as reference so feel free to do the same. The Eternal Flame Of Surtur!
