I do like Sweltering Suns here. I used to run it with Radiant Flames. I run it as a 2 of in the side. The sideboard is basically different removal packages and will depend on your LGS meta...Which is why I didnt post a sideboard, although i can post cards i use. I vary the numbers, but the cards i like using are Chaos Maw, Never / Return, Fatal Push,Lightning Strike, Sweltering Suns, By Force, Archfiend of Ifnir, Cut / Ribbons, Vraska's Contempt, Unlicensed Disintegration, God-Pharaoh's Gift, Fumigate, Doomfall, Hour of Glory... hopefully you get the idea. It is just so i have the ability to change the removal package. Do people play a lot of artifacts? More by force and abrades. Weak agro and tokens? Sweepers. Gods? Exiles. Big dudes? Unlicense. Planeswalkers? Never return. Like i said before, it just depends on your meta =)

landofMordor on Kresh the Sacrificer

Hey friend! Love the deck. Kresh is one of my favorites -- I've got a build and primer myself @ Blood-Braided Beatdown (Primer); go check it out! I took mine in a slightly different direction than you did, making Fling and friends my primary win conditions, but you might still be able to find some new cards in there.

As for directions your build could grow, I think you could make a lot of incremental improvements with individual cards. Stuff like Seed Guardian, for example, currently serve as your "flex spots" you can cut for edits if needed (I'd put Vile Redeemer over it, probably). Also cut cards that don't scale to EDH well, like Bolt and Make Obsolete, in favor of Earthquake and Fall of the Titans or something. Random suggestions are Dying Wish and Feed the Pack.

In general, I'd recommend increasing your creature density as much as possible -- put in Chaos Maw or Skirsdag Cultist for Devour in Flames, for instance, since Devour won't put counters on Kresh when it dies. Put in "fight"ing creatures instead of damage-based removal. And so forth. And then solidify a win condition: is it Soulblast? Overwhelming Stampede? Surestrike Trident? plain Voltron? and so forth.

Hope this helps! Hit me up if I can clarify or assist! Kresh is near and dear to my heart and I love the start you've gotten with this build.

I did think about that combo, I do have the cards, the problem is dealing with the hate. The group of people I play commander with don't give me much room so the number of counters are necessary. I am going to add a Eldrazi Monument to counteract the global 3 damage from Chaos Maw and combine it with Soul-Scar Mage

I won the prerelease that I went to yesterday! I played W/G aggro with a splash of red for Blur of Blades, Magma Spray, and Chaos Maw. Chaos Maw won me every game that I played it. I won 7 prize packs and didn't get any mythic rares between them and my prerelease pack. But I did pull a promo Endless Sands (which looks awesome when it is foil) a pack foil Imminent Doom, a Rhonas's Last Stand, a Bontu's Last Reckoning, and a Kefnet's Last Word. Overall it was a very fun!

Argy on Hour of Devastation Spoilers

I came 1st at my LGS for the Sunday arvo prerelease.

I cracked Liliana, Death's Majesty, which means I've now opened a playset of them, including a foil.

Shame I've not really got anything I can do with them.

I also opened Bontu's Last Reckoning, so I was going to play for sure.

I had a couple of Creatures, and a few decent Creatures, so I decided to play

Filthy

The last match was the most interesting. I was playing off against my partner StuBi for first place.

I got there in the first game because I had fliers and he didn't.

In the second game I got him down to 2 life, but then he got out a Creature with Lifelink, and a lot of big fatties, and overwhelmed me.

In the final game I was doing a couple of direct damage to him each turn, but we both had lots of fatties out and were at a standoff.

I had been using Lili's +1 quite a lot, then fishing Creatures back out of my Graveyard with her -3, so I had almost milled myself.

I wasn't really able to use Lili's final ability as StuBi was playing a Zombie deck.

StuBi played Chaos Maw to kill a lot of my Creatures, but I had about four or five that were Toughness 4 or greater so we were still at a bit of a stand off.

I looked through my Graveyard and realised that I hadn't seen Bontu's Last Reckoning yet. I also had a Creature with Eternalise in the 'Yard.

In a couple of turns I drew Bontu's Last Reckoning and cleared the board. I then cast my Creature with Eternalise. It was a 2/2. StuBi was on 8 and I had five cards left in my library.

He got Apocalypse Demon on the field.

Unfortunately he never got another Creature out.

I got Dune Beetle out as well, and was able to chip down his last bits of life.

I killed him with two cards left in my deck.

StuBi ended up cracking the The Scarab God out of the extra packs we had been given, so it ended up being a good day for both of us.
