deemberdom on Zo-Zu the Budgeter EXTREME BUDGET!

2 months ago

Nice list, I'm also a fan of building on a budget. Here are some cards you may be interested in:

Ankh of Mishra - lets you double up on Zo-zu's effect

Furnace of Rath - redundancy for Dictate of the Twin Gods

Gratuitous Violence - increases the punishment from Zo-zu, but might not be at it's best here since you are fairly creature-light

Burning Earth - Manabarbs, but only for nonbasics

Ruination - devastating against many decks

Sulfuric Vortex - shuts down lifegain while helping you burn people out

Storm Cauldron - helps with your land denial and landfall punishing plans

Heartless Hidetsugu - helps quickly bring opponents within reach of your burn

Given what you've told me I would run these instead:

Kavle on Mono-Red Taxes

6 months ago

I've been watching a lot of pleasantkenobi lately, and last night i had an idea. Is it possible to have mono-red taxes? I did a quick search of attrition cards that are mono-red, and found a surprising amount of them.

The first card that came to mind when i started searching was Manabarbs . After it hits the table, if no damage was done until then its a 20 mana limit on the game. and in modern people run shock lands, fetch lands, and other cards that sacrifice life for effects.

Going off of this, i searched for cards that punish players for using lands. Zo-Zu the Punisher and Burning Earth are pretty sweet. Might need more punishing cards to make the deck work though.

The next attrition strat would be land destruction. With that search I found some pretty cool cards. Stoneshaker Shaman , Akki Blizzard-Herder , Avalanche Riders, Crack the Earth ?, and Thoughts of Ruin were the ones i liked. ( Stoneshaker Shaman + Manabarbs is sick BTW.)

Lastly, card draw. Unfortunately the only card i found that could punish for card draw that could be played in mono red was Spiteful Visions .

I'm rather new to modern, so i don't know the format that well. Just throwing these cards together in a deck with 4 Lightning Bolts wouldn't work, so I'm asking for some advice. Thanks!!

SteelSentry on You shall be punished for your sins.

I love the deck, just wanted to mention that Blood Moon does not make the lands basic, so Burning Earth does still work with it out (they are considered nonbasic Mountains)

A fun thing to run with cards like Comet Storm is Mana Geyser. Combine that with the extra mana you get from Neheb and you can wipe the table off the map in one go sometimes. For even more fun, add an effect like Fork or Reverberate. I saw it mentioned above, so I was wondering why there aren't any extra combat cards. Things like Aggravated Assault and Relentless Assault could get you some crazy amounts of mana. Another thing to consider would be Burning Earth - a (slightly) more situational Manabarbs since it only happens when non-basic lands are used, but there are a lot of those in EDH and not that many in your deck!

Acidic Soil

Burning Earth

Citadel of Pain (funny pair with Repercussion).

Chandra, Flamecaller

Combustible Gearhulk

Uba Mask (If I can't draw cards then you can't either - also makes your wheels kind of fucked up brutal).

IQuarent first of all TYVM for all your suggestions and comments! I really appreciate it!

I was lucky enough that Matrixxx999 almost answered on all your suggestions for me and I fully agree with him.

Here's what I can add:

IQuarentsays... "Burning Earth. Redundant and over-costed. It's also a nombo with your Magus of the Moon/Blood Moon. I think almost anything would be better than this."

(3/14/2017: Blood Moons effect doesnt affect names or supertypes. It wont turn any land into a basic land or remove the legendary supertype from a legendary land, and the lands wont be named Mountain.)

I dont quite see nombo here cuz Burning Earth still punish my opponents for tapping nonbasic lands for mana, but redundantcy maybe. This deck still in testing regime Burning Earth is one of the cards that can be dropped out in the future.

Shivan Harvest - Moon & Magus as was mentioned before doesnt change land type for basic so Shivan work perfectly. Plus when first two are on the battlefield they become primary targets for removals (unlike Shivan) and mostly they just buy us some time.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle - was in the maybeboard, I try to avoid using lands that enters the battlefield tapped, but honestly I like this card plus it's fit great in deck strategy!

Chandra, Flamecaller - not bad but I prefere not to overload my deck with planeswalkers, and Chandra, Torch of Defiance fit more to my game style.

Skullcrack & Sizzle - is too weak in EDH for one time use spells imho.

Fanatic of Mogis - nice card and can actually be good here. I need to give it a try.

Mind's Eye & Gauntlet of Power - too mana heavy artifacts and as with the case of planeswalkers and dont want to overload my deck with them. Btw Gauntlet works bad with Skullclamp.

Matrixxx999 Thx for helping out :-P

Viashino Heretic - nice creature, fit in deck strategy as well, one minus its need to tapp as activation cost. But I will consider this one.

Mindsparker - was in my maybeboard sure it will play nice against your main deck my friend ;-P

Rolling Earthquake - love it! need it! and I just dont know how I missed it! XD
