Burrenton Forge-Tender Discussion

I wouldn't use Despise in your mainboard. It'd actually be better to swap it for maindeck Tidehollow Sculler.

More importantly, however, I think you need some other kind of removal. Path to Exile is the obvious choice, but it's out of your budget. I'd consider Dismember or Condemn as alternatives. You can also mix things up with Go for the Throat, Murderous Cut, and Victim of Night. I'd at least move around some Doom Blades to make room for those. That way, you have a mix of things and don't just lose to a Siege Rhino or Grim Flayer. Oblivion Ring and Journey to Nowhere also do a lot of work.

At least one Timely Reinforcements can drastically improve your chances when you're behind. It's an absolute beast of a card against decks like Burn.

4 Zealous Persecution seems like a lot. I'd cut 2 of them for Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Oath of Gideon, Promise of Bunrei, or (probably the best choice) Secure the Wastes. If you want to go even more budget, Triplicate Spirits is a cheap alternative to the above.

Vault of the Archangel will win you games. You only need 1, but may find you like it so much you want it every game.

The other issue I see is your mana curve. Normally, your 1-drops are Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize. Since you're on a budget, the Duresses are a good choice. I'd still add some other 1-drops. Soul Warden, Weathered Wayfarer, Thraben Inspector, or some other 1-drop white creature are all good here.

For your sideboard, I'd go something like:

2x Brave the Elements
2x Burrenton Forge-Tender
3x Disenchant/Stony Silence
3x Journey to Nowhere/Go for the Throat/Victim of Night
2x Oblivion Ring
3x Relic of Progenitus/Rest in Peace/Tormod's Crypt

I have had a player like this before, and I as well have been a player like this before. I generally only do it to people I know are pricks, but nonetheless, this is how you deal with it.

If you want to shuffle his deck, or cut his deck, you're obligated to do so. Speak up.

If you don't know what a foreign card to you does, you can require your opponent to bring the card up in a language you can understand to see how it works.

If you have a question about anything that is public information during the game, such as cards in hand, mana floating, what a card does, what he has in his graveyard, or even how something is played out, he is required to answer. Or at least allow you to figure it out yourself. If he doesn't, well, he can be disqualified from the game. Pretty simple.

On another note, I had a guy try and disqualify me from a match because he was running goblins against my elves, half read what Burrenton Forge-Tender did, and when he said, "Does it have protection from red?" I answered honestly and said yes. I didn't say anything about the sac effect the card has, and when I used it on Anger of the Gods he had a hissy fit and called the judge over. Judge was on my side, I'm not required to say any information unless asked, and because the guy kept complaining, I got a free match win.

Things like that are only a problem if you make it a problem in my opinion. But if he is doing things like starting the game before you've decided to mulligan or keep, I see that as an issue and would call a judge over to resolve it if he doesn't respond to you.

907phringe Burrenton Forge-Tender also stops Anger of the Gods which can be important.

sillydecks Burrenton Forge-Tender maybe but I'm just not sure how I feel that it only says source and then you have to sacrifice her. So its like just getting rid of 1 burn spell. I think Kitchen Finks is helping out there.

Hey! You did a great job. And under $50, that is awesome.

I don't have a whole lot of suggestions to make, you have a really solid start here. I would be interested in knowing how well Grim Haruspex works, it could be good for this. Token's will be the thing you are saccing the most, though you should have enough nontoken creatures to make it still pretty good. Asylum Visitor is another budget option I have seen people use, since it does a decent impression of Dark Confidant. I think its up to preference or how often you find yourself empty handed.

Also, I have found Lightning Bolt to be insanely powerful in this type of deck. So many times, you will be sitting just a few Artist triggers away from winning and you draw the bolt and it finishes the game. It may be worth trying to find room for the other 2.

Rally the Ancestors may have been a good choice, as your deck will be a tad bit slower than the original. Sometimes the extra couple turns can really help make your graveyard extra juicy.

As a budget version, you are going to be a little slower because of the lands, which may hurt against Infect and Affinity decks. The lack of Ghost Quarter will also hurt your game against Infect and Tron. But I think it was a good idea not to include them. Without fetches, getting your colors online is more important. Lack of Path to Exile will also hurt a bit against creature based combos. But aside from that, you should be good to go against most decks. You just need to find a sideboard that works for your meta. Think about stuff like Burrenton Forge-Tender, Tidehollow Sculler, Dictate of Erebos, Kataki, War's Wage, Ronom Unicorn, Wear / Tear, Terminate, Duress and Slaughter Games.

Anyways, these decks are a hell of a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy it!

You might like Burrenton Forge-Tender in your sideboard as well, I've seen it put to good use. Perhaps over Vryn Wingmare, as with three Thalias in the deck already you probably won't be needing more.

Love it love everything about it! Goldfished this a few times while playtesting and I've gotta say its super fun to pilot. I do however have a few suggestions... it seems REALLY weak to Anger of the Gods. Perhaps some Burrenton Forge-Tender or Selfless Spirit in the SB to deal with this? Also I think I like Nylea, God of the Hunt as a 1 of here for the purpose of protecting your board against damage based sweepers such as anger in game 1... looking at your skred! Sure she doesnt get hit by coco but as a 1 of she could do some work. Lastly, Qasali Pridemage seems like it would be useful as a 1-2 of in the MB to deal with awkward interactions from your opponent in game 1 such as bridge, blood moon etc. Anyways just my initial thoughts! Sweet deck +1!
