Butcher of the Horde Discussion

I just looked up the ruling while writing this comment Marionette Master 's ability checks on resolution so you would deal 8 and the second trigger would deal 0. With having to use Refurbish to reanimate God-Pharoah's Gift it is doubtful that you will draw another. Especially considering that you are on the self mill plan. Some sac outlets that I think are much better are Cartel Aristocrat Blood Bairn Butcher of the Horde

jackm14 I'm playtesting with Boros Charm as it's a lot more versatile than Heartfire . Yeah the situation where you sac a Dreadhorde Butcher to Heartfire for 7 face damage is awesome, but the ideal case. With Boros Charm you can deal the 4 to face when you need the reach, but you can also dodge sweepers if you want to, give Dreadhorde Butcher double strike for another counter, or just hit Butcher of the Horde for big damage. I really like Midnight Reaper , there definitely needs to be some draw to beat out midrange decks, and I haven't found a better option.

rotimislaw & -blink- According to this thread athreos is punished by RIP and leyline.
Both Mortify and Disenchant are sideboard viable so I could make room for those. I haven't really touched this deck in a long time so its a bit funny to see people still commenting on it xD, it's pretty dated.
Lightning Skelemental is new to me, looks good enough to earn a spot. Maybe removing Butcher of the Horde . Idk if that's the right choice or not. Also considering removing Fulminator Mage from mainboard at least, even with athreos it may be a bit weak.

Ferocious: if you Control a Creature with power 4 or greater as you cast this spell, counter target spell
Temur was never playable during KTK Block’s Standard, hopefully this card would change that.
Create a new mechanic printed in a commander-legacy-vintage set. Make it playable in all 3!

I'd also recommend Crackling Doom as it is a great way to control the battlefield in mardu colors

The ETB for Karmic Guide (Copy who has Haste, thanks Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker ) returns Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to the Battlefield, since he has Haste built-in, go back to 1. Infinite Damage from the Goblin Bombardment and creates Infinite Karmic Guide copies, all with Haste that can attack (as long as your pre-combat main phase).
Allow the Adarkar Valkyrie delayed triggered ability (the Aurelia, the Warleader dying) to Resolve, returning the Aurelia, the Warleader to the Battlefield. Remember, this Aurelia, the Warleader has a NEW card ID value, so this will be his first time he attacks THIS turn, and since the Old Aurelia, the Warleader conveniently created an additional combat phase, and the new Aurelia, the Warleader has haste, let's go back to 1. and then loop Infinite Attack Phases for ALL creatures. Doesn't even matter if Aurelia, the Warleader gets blocked and killed, doing your work for you (unless she exiled then that's bad).
Goblin Bombardment sacrifice Karmic Guide to Deal 1 damage, this puts the Adarkar Valkyrie delayed trigger on the stack as well (Stack looks like: Deal 1 damage, return Karmic Guide to the battlefield)
Special Note: This one is a MIND-BENDER, because the Reveillark is LTB (Not ETB)
Goblin Bombardment sacrifice Reveillark to deal 1 damage, put his LTB on the stack returning Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and any other power 2 or less creature (hopefully a Grand Abolisher ) to the battlefield, resolve the LTB and the Damage to empty the stack
Goblin Bombardment sacrifice Reveillark to Deal 1 damage, put his LTB on the stack returning Karmic Guide and any other power 2 or less creature (hopefully a Grand Abolisher ) to the battlefield, resolve the LTB (The damage is still on the stack from 1.)
Resolve the original Goblin Bombardment damage off the stack to do 1 damage, and then go back to 1.
Another special note:
Animate Dead + Karmic Guide when setting up the Buried Alive >> Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Restoration Angel + Karmic Guide is a bit weird too, because Karmic Guide has Protection from , so you have to make sure you put the Animate Dead triggered ability that will kill the Karmic Guide on the stack FIRST, then put the Karmic Guide ETB on the stack SECOND. Resolve the Karmic Guide ETB off the stack, THEN, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (built-in haste) IN RESPONSE to the Animate Dead trigger on the stack, to have the Karmic Guide (Copy) return the Restoration Angel . Eventually, when you want to go into Combat Phase (with Infinite Haste Restoration Angel s, you will need to let the Animate Dead resolve off the stack, killing the Original Karmic Guide (but not the copy). But who cares, attack free with the Restoration Angel copies and the Karmic Guide copy.
