Chalice of the Void Discussion

  1. I think a couple of board wipe spells would be beneficial. Something like Storm's Wrath or Hour of Devastation would help you stay alive vs aggro and give you a good shot a killing some plainswalkers as well. Another card that burn decks have run in the past for this reason is Ensnaring Bridge. You would probably need to keep your hand emptied which leads into my next thought.

  2. If you do want to try the Ensnaring Bridge plan, then you will probably need to empty your hand a little bit faster. Your creatures will help you with this, but don't really work well with the board wipes. Trading the creatures for cards like Talisman of Indulgence or Chromatic Lantern gives you mana that can be used instantly. They also have the side benefit of being able to give you red mana on the chance you only have tron lands in play.

  3. Another consideration I had for this deck would be getting hosed by things like Leyline of Sanctity. I know you have All Is Dust for things like this, but you could also try something like Ugin, the Ineffable to not only remove troublesome cards like leyline, but also give you another creature option to work with. It also has the potential benefit of card draw. The static ability could help you play some of your hand out.

  4. General food for thought.
    4.1 Changing the mountains to snow mountains to add Arcum's Astrolabe. Reasoning is card draw and mana filtering for possible color splashes.

4.2 Chalice of the Void Why? Well given that your playing a large number of spells that can be whatever cost you want, you can place this at almost any value you want for some potential spell control. It would probably be better as a sideboard card, but it couldn't hurt to have for the combo matchups. Imagine landing this on 2 to combat the Grinding Station/Underworld Breach decks.

4.3 Shrapnel Blast This just seems like solid damage for the cost. Sacrifice fodder for this could be astrolabe's, talismans, chalice, you name it. (example) destroying your own Ensnaring Bridge to allow you to attack.

fasmith718 that's sweet to hear you killed it at a paper event! I've been competing on MTGO and doing decent. Kaya, Orzhov Usurper has been a popular discussion point in that discord that I shared in the description. I, personally, am not a fan of planeswalker cards, but that's the aggro in me. Kaya, Orzhov Usurper is good as a recurring grave exile threat, and as a small cmc creature threat. However, Kaya's Guile can be at instant speed, adds to grave for Bedlam Reveler and can force opponent to sacrifice an expensive creature (which has come in hand against Primeval Titan, Gurmag Angler, Bedlam Reveler, and other big creatures we find it difficult to remove at instant speed. As for the synergy with Leyline of the Void, I agree that that could close out games really well IF opponent lets Kaya, Orzhov Usurper get there. Generally, you don't judge a planeswalker based on ultimate alone, but you do bring up very strong points. If you like the synergy, and it works for you, keep it! Keep reporting back to us on how it works for you. Also, as for Chalice of the Void, I usually use Kolaghan's Command or Wear when I know opponent uses it. Usually, Mardu Pyromancer can work at the 2 or 3 cmc range really well, until artifact hate is found. Opponent usually doesn't have 6 mana super early to use Chalice of the Void to counter 3cmc spells.

YamishiTheWickedOne there are new Rakdos lists that use Lightning Skelemental, Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, Dreadhorde Arcanist, and Seasoned Pyromancer to absolutely blaze through opponents. I think I've generally seen them forgo to also threaten with Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon. They are somewhat susceptible to early interaction and grave hate, so that's why I've kept my list this way. That being said, Unearth doesn't work here super well, since most creatures are not 3 cmc or lower pre-sideboard. I actually just did a league and I found myself not needing more card draw. I had plenty of threats and just had to "toolbox" and figure out which I needed to cast at that moment.

Thank you for your comments! Please feel included and encouraged to critique and suggest anything else to the deck, or even the primer to make it better! :)

If you're going to go that way, I'd say use Chalice of the Void as your starting point, since it basically has the "spells with a specific converted mana cost cannot be cast."

You want to add 4 Faerie Conclave, 2 Cavern of Souls, 2 Castle Vantress, 4 Dismember (you can cast it using life), 4 Deprive for counters, 4 Brazen Borrower for petty theft, 2 Vendilion Clique, & 2 Chalice of the Void to lock out your opponent. That’s the mono blue fish Nikachu (if you don’t know who he is, I’d check him out on YouTube) is running and it’s a BEAST.

I think Goblin Charbelcher is a fun idea, not sure how effective it will be, You do only have 19 lands and mana ramp so seems like you can get a good chunk of damage with him. Really it sets a 1-2 turn clock depending on their life total.

Chalice of the Void is an amazing choice. I can see that being very effective, Would shut down their biggest threat while you control the rest. I would suggest mainboarding it but the list seems so tight and if its a rogue (Not Net) deck you aren't sure 100% of what cmc to target.

But all in all I'll definitely keep following this deck, seems super great once again!

The last Skred lists I have seen all play a playset of:

Ensnaring Bridge, Chalice of the Void, Blood Moon Simian Spirit Guide, Desperate Ritual along with varying numbers of Pyretic Ritual. They usualy have the bulk of board wipes in the side, and have Goblin Rabblemaster in the three drop creature slot.

All this information is all wrong if mono-red-prison and Skred have recently seperated into different decks :)

Hey man, I finally made the change to 0x Young Pyromancer and once again used your guide as my jumping-off point. Came in 2nd in my first paper event with it out of 17, so a pretty nice start :) One of my only differences so far is putting Kaya, Orzhov Usurper in the board. I liked it as

  1. additional gy hate
  2. lifegain & 1 drop removal against burn and blitz
  3. death's shadow removal
  4. additional answer to Chalice of the Void

In practice I saw that it can work alongside Leyline of the Void in the Death's Shadow matchup as a wincon as they are geared to fill the yard and lower their life total, which plays well into Kaya's ultimate. It also would have been handy when and opponent dropped a Marit Lage against me, but that was a pretty fringe case!

Anyway, thanks again!

Pheardemons on Card advantage.... in White?

Take out Archangel of Thune, Herald of War, Shattered Angel, both Gideons, Chalice of the Void, and Ashes of the Abhorrent for more lands. Switch Aegis of the Gods for Leyline of Sanctity. I'm not sure what else to take out for more lands, but you need to get up to at least 36 in my opinion.
