ancientskull on Golgari Fling

I really enjoy the idea of this deck! It makes me want to build a Rakdos version of it, using some control aspects, and maybe using Fling and Thud.... Since it seems like the plan is to basically use Wall of Blood as a Modern-Legal Channel, and then Fireball them to death with the Fling effect! Disciple of Bolas seems like a great way to gain back the life you pay into the wall, and also can draw you a bunch of cards! I love it!

Channel is banned and Explore is Listed Twice

Is this a theme deck or do you want help cutting and improving towards you main idea?

If you're wanting to run a deck with lots of Instant and Sorcery Recursion you might want to add a few more reusable cards like Charmbreaker Devils, Voidmage Husher, and if you can protect it Tamiyo, the Moon Sage.

There's also a lot of interesting cards with Buyback like Capsize that would fit your theme.

Hmmm, so basically change the red for blue. I see what you're getting at. It actually wouldn't change the deck that much. Mayael is basically just a mana dump if I have nothing better to do. Her hit rate is about 50% or less, so she's actually not even that critical as a commander. Channel is actually the star card of the deck. Channel + Emrakul on turn 2, game over. That's a winning move in Vintage, let alone casual.

I think I'm going to stay with red because of Godsire and Spellbreaker Behemoth. Hard to say which is better between Lightning Bolt and Counterspell, but going for the full Timmy seems like the way to go with both Shards and Eldrazi. Red also gives me Combustible Gearhulk, which can throw down a lot of damage with all the big CMC cards in the deck.

I am going to second legendofa. With Eldrazi in the running, Mayael the Anima is going to be incredibly powerful.

I have not done an in-depth look at the sets you pulled, but my gut says you might have a hard time ramping in colourless--after all, effecient mana rocks have not been printed in every set. Green ramp, however, is a common enough staple that you probably want access to that colour. Fourth edition even gives you such gems as

To show you how great Mayael's colours are, particularly with access to a powerful ancient set, I did a quick Gatherer search and wanted to point out the following notable cards:

Also, don't forget you have access to Strip Mine and Mana Vault.

MegaMatt13 on Wort: the Ramp Mother of Burn

Treehugger003, thanks so much for the suggestions. As noted above, Channel is banned in Commander unless your playgroup specifically allows it.

As for Sunbird's Invocation, it's a powerful card but doesn't interact with X spells well since it will set X to 0. My version of the deck runs enough X spells for this to be problematic.

I used to have Pyroblast in here but actually found it to be unnecessary. If someone counterspells, they can only counter one of the two copies of the spell. I've found that most blue players psychologically feel as though this is "wasting" a counterspell since one copy still gets through. If your meta is heavy on blue though, it still may be worth running since it is very cheap removal!

Strionic Resonator is an interesting suggestion! Does it work with the way conspire is worded though? Strionic Resonator says in the reminder text that it can be used with "When", "Whenever" or "At" triggers. I don't see conspire being worded that way. I could be wrong though.

So I'm working on my own Wort deck and I was checking out which other decks on tapped out had. I would like to reiterate Sunbird's Invocation it uses cast so you can double the spells it casts as well. Who doesn't want free stuff?

I was wondering if you had problems with counterspells. I'm thinking of including Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast and the green/red one that I can't think of the name at the moment as a way of ensuring my big X goes off.

I'm also considering running Channel for extra fuel/fun.

For another idea I've been thinking about is Strionic Resonator to copy, copies of spells with the Conspire trigger.

Thanks,

Tree
