Combust Discussion

Roast might be your best option. Flame Javelin could be helpful too. Combust is good if its blue or white creatures. Collision / Colossus or Crushing Pain or Spitebellows Are all decent choices

Let's say you have a Satyr Enchanter. I cast Combust, you respond with Stonewood Invocation to save it. I can't respond. Your Satyr is going to live, no matter what I do.

Now, similar situation. You have Satyr Enchanter. I cast Sudden Shock, you can't respond. Your Satyr is going to die, no matter what you do.

Split second doesn't just prevent countering. It prevents all non-mana activity after the point where the split second spell is cast, whether that's buffs, counterspells, sacrifice effects, or anything else.

I'm just trying to think of what you'd side vs. control. You can beat a pretty big selection of some really heavy hitters. I've also found my version of vamps just molests affinity. Maybe try Surgical Extraction or Extirpate? Combust or Rending Volley?

Oh as I'm writing this you already have surgicals. hmm...

Btw, have you considered Gifted Aetherborn mainboard?

SteelSentry on R/W Brion, Blanket non-targeting removal

2 years ago

For hexproof, I would consider just packing Glaring Spotlight or Arcane Lighthouse, since removing hexproof also allows you to steal and sac utility or stubborn creatures with Brion. Getting around Kira, Great Glass-Spinner is a little more tricky. One option would be to use something like Captivating Crew, since using their ability would eat the counter ability and then use targeted removal (or vice versa). Using Insurrection or Mob Rule is another option to steal it. You could also pack Banefire, Combust or Overmaster to just fight through counterspell decks.

I wouldn't make them tribal decks. I would just pick a "commander" that reflects that colors greatest strengths. You might at well make the format modern as well if its just going to be the set 5 decks.

Here are some Ideas for my commanders and their edicts.

W- Go wide Odric, Lunarch Marshal, or Odric, Master Tactician with some tiny fellows that all have cool keyword abilities and a few angels

W edicts: Luminesce, Celestial Purge, Surge of Righteousness

U- Control Talrand, Sky Summoner, or Baral, Chief of Compliance. Just load the deck with all instants and sorceries and a few sphinx as win cons

U edicts Encase in Ice, Flashfreeze

B- Midrange Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Yahenni, Undying Partisan. just play a bunch of mean and treacherous things and sprinkle with demons

B edicts: Deathmark, Talara's Bane, Self-Inflicted Wound

R Tempo "aggro wont work in a 5 player game" Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Lovisa Coldeyes, kind of aggro but with more card draw and removal with some good dragons too,

R edicts: Combust, Rending Volley

G Big ol' Ramp Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Silvos, Rogue Elemental, just get lots of mana, defiantly include some hydras.

G edicts Display of Dominance, Great Sable Stag, Mold Adder (I kno they're creatures but green gets an exception)

SteelSentry on Multiple source damage Saving Grace …

3 years ago

The damage redirection from Saving Grace will occur when the damage source resolves. So the first Combust resolves, dealing 5 to the Boros Reckoner (and triggering its ability). After the Reckoner deals 5 damage to a target, the second Combust resolves, triggering the Reckoner's ability and killing it in the process. After 5 more damage is dealt by the Reckoner, the third Combust will resolve, hitting its original target.

Gzuis on Multiple source damage Saving Grace …

I think it's a simple question, but I did not find it anywhere else. Using Saving Grace on my Boros Reckoner Will the damage he will take add up? For exemple with 3x Combust will he take the damage separately 5 + 5 + 5 and die on the first, or will it take 15?

So, quick poll, what're peoples' thoughts on burn in EDH? specifically cards like Lightning Bolt and even Combust. Do you think they have a place in decks (more looking on the cEDH side of things). I do know that Fire Covenant is quickly becoming a fvourite of a lot of players.
