Philoctetes on Licia, the Sanguine Storm

2 days ago

Hey all!

@jonfehl thank you so much for the kind words! Dude, that Edgar Markov storm deck sounds insanely fun to play. I feel like our decks are two shades of the same color!

@jj4622 it seems our minds are always going to the same place after new sets! I’ve had Fury Storm sitting in the que on my deck building spreadsheet ever since it was spoiled! I absolutely agree with you - during a Licia/Burnt Offering sequence Fury Storm let’s us go ham salad.

I am thinking of either cutting into the cantrips, cutting Tithe Drinker, or cutting Thermo-Alchemist. None feel great, and I think Fork, Reverberate, and Bonus Round all deserve to stay. Any ideas?

As a side note, I’m considering a few other changes. I recently acquired a revised Wheel of Fortune which is 100% going in. I am also planning to cut Rain of Filth for Sacrifice, as I realize now I definitely want two Burnt Offerings. Also, I’m adding Rugged Prairie because the price came down.

Update #2:

Added some more sacrifice outlets, including explosive mana spells like Mana Geyser and Burnt Offering; some ways to close out the game in Comet Storm and Exsanguinate; and a few more mana sinks (extort creatures) to make use of any floating mana that isn't being used to pump into Xantcha, Sleeper Agent's activated ability.

Hey! Thanks for looking through the deck!

Reaping the Rewards I have never considered the card before, but I really like the idea! I am adding it to the maybeboard and will be thinking on it for awhile, because I do think it has some potential.

If only it was black or red mana it would be a shoo-in I feel. White mana is often the chokepoint, but I can see this offering a way to bleed off some excess white mana while upping our spell count by 3 or 4 on it's own which is nothing to sneeze at, while also offering us a way to enable casting Licia multiple times during a Burnt Offering sequence. Very cool suggestion!

chadsansing on Rakdos, Lord of Riots

This seems like a strong Rakdos good-stuff deck with plenty of cards to trigger Rakdos's additional casting cost and lots of "each player" effects.

I wonder about sub-themes and combos that might take even more advantage of what's there now.

For example, you could focus on discard effects and cards like Megrim, Waste Not, Words of Waste, and wheels like Wheel of Fortune and Dragon Mage.

You could include Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond or Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank. Combos like these will speed up your game plan and force opponents to choose between disrupting your combos and fighting off your creatures and recurring triggers.

You could complement Grave Pact and your current sac outlets with Dictate of Erebos and cards like Blood Pet, Soldevi Adnate, Burnt Offering, Disciple of Bolas, Merciless Executioner, and Fleshbag Marauder and maybe both Kalitas cards.

You could add more cards like Vexing Devil, Dash Hopes, and Eidolon of the Great Revel and tax more life. You could add all of the double-damage enchantments, as well.

(And I would run Chromatic Lantern over Commander's Sphere.)

My big piece of advice is this: pick 2 sub-themes in addition to everyone takes damage all the time from recurring triggers, maximize the interactions between those themes, and then replace all the cards that don't contribute to one or more of those lines of play, especially cards that target a single opponent.

Happy brewing!

Since you're aiming for this deck to be under $30, here are some good subs that you can use.

I usually let Mazirek hit the yard, but I'm adding a Whispersilk Cloak. Good catch on Burnt Offering! I am going to replace the folk with the caterpillar later today -

Meren is a strong maybe!

Thanks for the feedback, Xarien :)

Like the recursion theme here!

Couple of notes:Burnt Offering is actually out of your colors here per Oracle text. Maybe Culling the Weak instead?Scavenger Folk seems like it could be a bit slow due to summoning sickness, what are your thoughts on Caustic Caterpillar?

Meren of Clan Nel Toth seems like he'd be a perfect fit here. Do you have enough protection for Mazirek or with the recursion effects are you letting him hit the graveyard instead?
