Builder's Bane Discussion

Spell_Slam on PDH(R) - Syr Carah the Bold

The deck looks great! I'm really excited to build my own version.

You have Flare, Solar Blast, Zap and Spark Jolt twice in your deck.

I don't think you can cycle Solar Blast from exile. You can't discard cards from exile.

Eternal Warrior is the cheapest way to give your commander Vigilance in Red. I'm not sure if it's worth running over equipment, but it is more efficient even if it is riskier.

Faithless Looting seems like a great option for you deck.

Empty the Warrens could also be strong in a deck full of cheap spells and rituals.

Pyromatics is maybe another good way to get some cheap triggers.

I wish there was a good way to manipulate the top of the deck more consistently than with Scry, like a Future Sight -type effect. Maybe Lens of Clarity with shuffle effects and Shenanigans ? Probably too cute.

You are running a large amount of X-spells. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but they are mana intensive, making it less likely that you'll be able to take advantage of the exiled cards after it. Meteor Shower seems particularly bad, and I could see Builder's Bane being more efficient as a Smash to Smithereens .

Seems like you still have lots of room to play in. Maybe you can afford to add in some Double-Strike spells? You talk about it, but I don't see any in your deck. Temur Battle Rage is usually the go-to, after that there's Uncaged Fury and Assault Strobe .

I'm gonna say no on the Builder's Bane, too expensive for me to consider as a board wipe but the others have been added!

Builder's Bane, By Force, and Shatterstorm are good, Indomitable Creativity is a little more expensive but has good flavor for your deck cuz you can destroy your tokens to get real creatures. Release the Gremlins is similar flavorwise and lets you destroy other people's stuff and still benefit.

Vandalblast is good for big group if you wanna hose a lot of people, and Smash to Smithereens is available for spot removal at instant speed (or you have a plethora of green spells).

My favorite card, although it's weirdly conditional so best with big boards, is Decimate

Builder's Bane and Ghirapur Orrery are subpar, but You should also add Apocalypse, my playgroup refers to it as "the big red button" because you cast that, and everything mysteriously disappears.
