Commune with Lava Discussion

Nice! I play pretty casually and play almost exclusively Boros colors, so here's my take:

  • 1) 3.5. Skullclamp is really good in just about any token, sac or equipment deck.
  • 2) 4. The only thing holding this back is the price.
  • 3) 3. Not bad. The fact that you have to pay every time is annoying. Not quite as good as number 1.
  • 4) 2.5. Not a huge fan. This basically eats up half your mana base and makes you the target of Strip Mines.
  • 5) 2.5. Mask of Memory is pretty decent. Middle of the road.
  • 6) 3. Solid. I like it.
  • 7) 3. Good plan, Lifegain to mitigate paying life. Best with Necropotence.
  • 8) 2. Still helps opponents, and normally discard outlets are useless without the deck being built around them.
  • 9) 2. Tower of Fortunes is not really good if you don't have insane ramp. Better options out there.
  • 10) 3.5. Nice!
  • 11) 1. Just play Phyrexian Arena. Use Strionic Resonator for bigger trigger effects.
  • 12) 2. Well of Lost Dreams is actually pretty good, but there are better lifegain effects than Peace of Mind. I like Inventors' Fair.
  • 13) 2.5. You have to be pretty desperate to use this but it seems like it'd be okay sometimes.
  • 14) 3.5. Tribal is always powerful.
  • 15) 2.5. It's okay, kinda easy to interupt.
  • 16) 3.5. I love Infiltration Lens!
  • 17) 1. Little too janky and helps opponents.
  • 18) 4. Because Slate of Ancestry is so good.
  • 19) 1. I feel like there are better ways to repeat wheels. This one costs too much.
  • 20) 5. My all time personal favorite. Humble Defector is good alone and my top two-drop in all my Boros/red decks.

So again, from a strictly Boros perspective, those are my thoughts. I'm sure you can see the biases and the ones I've actually tested haha!

Others to consider:

Hope some of this helps. This will be a good resource!

pyracanth on Trial by Fire - Budget Neheb EDH

I playtested it too, and you've got a lot of combos such as one with Neheb, the Eternal, Commune with Lava, Insult / Injury, Howl of the Horde, and Earthquake.

When it comes to actual spells... I'm not that versed in red, but maybe Young Pyromancer?

Exile the top two cards of your library. Until the end of your next turn, you may play those cards.

This is to Commune with Lava what Divination is to Mind Spring. Probably the most likely red "draw two" we'll see.

Thank you for the feedback TheCrimsonKing101 that is a lot of options to consider, I am definitely adding Dolmen Gate andCommune with Lava to the deck. The other suggestions are really solid and give me some options to consider, so I will see what fits best as the deck comes together.

Mana dumps that come to mind: Ant Queen, Hydras like Hydra Broodmaster, Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, Moonveil Dragon, Commune with Lava, Wurmcalling ,Sprout Swarm

Other potential adds: Champion of Lambholt, Dragon Mage (You should be able to dump your hand with all the mana), Fierce Empath (to grab hellkite charger), Pyreheart Wolf, Vigor, Disrupt Decorum , Dolmen Gate, Growing Rites of Itlimoc , Arachnogenesis, Artifact Mutation

Safe attacking. Sometimes you want to attack, but they got too much stuffs Winds of Qal Sisma, Soul of New Phyrexia//Stonehoof Chieftain

"Out of combat" wincons. Assuming you can go infinite with Aggravated Assault there is still a chance they have they can block you and not die. So add some of those safe attacking cards plus creatures like Hellrider

Glad to see Neheb, the Eternal already here. Generator Servant is another good ramp card.

Commune with Lava, Humble Defector, and Knollspine Dragon are some card draw options that you could take advantage of. Throne of the High City too.

Some cards I've found useful in my Neheb deck:

Generator Servant is my favorite red ramp card. T3 Neheb w/haste.

Humble Defector, Knollspine Dragon, Commune with Lava, Etali, Primal Storm, Reforge the Soul, and Loreseeker's Stone are all good card draw options you could take advantage of.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle seems worth it for your deck. You'll almost always get it online.

Hope some of these help!

Generator Servant is my favorite red ramp card.

Humble Defector, Knollspine Dragon, Commune with Lava, Etali, Primal Storm, Reforge the Soul, Loreseeker's Stone, and Slate of Ancestry are all good card draw engives that this deck could take advantage of.

Hope some of these help!
