Burning Wish Discussion

KongMing on Titan's Revenge -- (Giant Tribal/Voltron)

Yeah, I kind of agree with Dango when it comes to Sunforger. It is nice to have the ability to tutor for different kinds of removal when you really need it, but like the Rogue's Gloves and Mask of Memory, Sunforger is creature dependent (slightly less so because you don't need to swing to activate it, but still.)

Maybe if instead you replaced it with Burning Wish and added some utility spells to the sideboard? The repeatable removal is what's really nice about Sunforger, I can understand your wanting it in.

Rule 13 of commander (found at http://mtgcommander.net/rules.php):

Abilities which refer to other cards owned outside the game (Wishes, Spawnsire, Research, Ring of Ma'ruf) do not function in Commander without prior agreement on their scope from the playgroup.

In a tournament setting this means that the scope of Burning Wish will be determined by the Tournament Organizer, and should be assumed not to function unless they state otherwise.

hookedonkronix on Squee the voltron

Mogg Fanatic / Bloodstone Goblin / Goblin Spelunkers / Skirk Prospector / Spikeshot Goblin / Taurean Mauler / Pulse of the Forge / Radiating Lightning / Burning Wish / Seismic Shift / Grand Melee / Impact Tremors / Trove of Temptation

Cut these creatures and spells as soon as possible, none of them improve the Voltron wincon. You've got a lot of filler in here, I stopped adding cuts because it really depends how far you want to take this deck as well as what you'd budget for it. Mono red likes ramp, I'd recommend adding the mana doublers Gauntlet of Might / Gauntlet of Power and Caged Sun as well as some rocks Sol Ring and others. From your maybe board I'd include Goblin King / Blood Moon / Daretti, Scrap Savant and a few others. Mono red voltron is going to rely on you ramping up harder and controlling your opponents by destroying artifacts and land so Shattering Spree / Volcanic Offering / Incendiary Command / Mizzium Mortars / Fissure Vent/ Structural Distortion are all cards i'd recommend. Hope this helps, like I said it all depends on how far you want to take it but there are plenty of mono red staples that you don't have in here that would work well with a voltron build.

New Vintage playable and possibly needs to be restricted from the get go:


This card is nuts. Grabs Mana Drain, Time Walk, Ancestral Recall, Burning Wish, Flash...and it's blue so it pitches to Force of Will? Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

I wish this was in Modern:



Nirkana Revenant

Creature - Vampire Shade

Whenever you tap a Swamp for mana, add to your mana pool (in addition to the mana the land produces).

: Nirkana Revenant hets +1/+1 until end of turn.

Also another reprint:

try adding Gamble and burning wish for more utility. gamble grabs life of the loam or anything else, Burning Wish for when any of the commands are good or just a little removal. burning wish is less than a dollar right now and gamble is 7.

Great comments guys thanks for the interest and following my journey!

luther - while I do love Hatred as a fantastic win condition in a lot of decks, I feel in this build the Attack with Licia commander damage plan is very Plan B. I like having the option, but the main reason I like it is that it sort of exists by itself without slots dedicated to it, you know? But thank you for the suggestion!

MagicBlues - thanks for following along! The deck has definitely evolved over time, haha. My goal is actually at this point to continue to upgrade as I make certain acquisitions and really trick it out. My latest thought is potentially including a Burning Wish Mastermind's Acquisition sideboard package and offloading some board wipes and other situational cards to it.

Good comment regarding Not Forgotten my reasoning specifically for Not Forgotten over a card like Shreds of Sanity or Recoup is that it can bring back whatever I need, and especially Helm of Awakening which is just such a crucial piece. It can also circumstantially grab a Glacial Chasm or something similar!

Keep the comments coming guys I am enjoying the discussion!

Hey, I linked your deck in a new Budget Alternatives section of my deck. I may expand on it, but I appreciate that you put in the time to create a good budget version that keeps the central feel.

I have a question. Your Wishboard has 2 instants. You can get them with Mastermind's Acquisition but not Burning Wish. In any case, Mastermind's Acquisition is a sorcery, so no real reactive play is possible with them. Can you outline what sort of play states and decisions would lead to playing of either of those instants in your Wishboard?
