Cut / Ribbons Discussion

TheACTR on Mardu Spellslinging

Sorry for the long comments

For subtractions I would remove: Council's Judgment The 3 for 1 potential is nice but you don't have full control of the spell. Plus you have plenty of removal. I'd cut it or run Grasp of Fate in its place

Cut / Ribbons You are playing this for Ribbons but Torment of Hailfire is just better and requires less hoop jumping. And you have Skull Storm, Exsanguinate and Debt to the Deathless. In fact, Skull Storm can probably be cut too.

Entreat the Angels I like this card but not in this deck.

Insult / Injury You have VERY few damage based sources and that makes this card a dead draw a lot of times.

Jaya's Immolating Inferno Despite two 3 CMC commanders this may be hard to cast sometimes. This would be much better suited as a Comet Storm or Fireball

Rakdos's Return I just think this spell suffers from sorcery speed. Your experience may differ but I have always found I had better things to do with my turn.

Commune with Lava I have a thing against the 'cast it or it's gone forever' card advantage that red gets so this is just prejudice. If you like it, obviously ignore me.

Murderous Cut It isn't bad. Maybe this is drawing unwarranted hate. Potentially costing 1 is pretty sweet.

Jaya Ballard She has three very meaningful abilities but she is so hard to cast reliably in a 3 color deck. Again, your mileage may vary.

Anyways, I love this deck and I hope I helped you with my suggestions. Obviously, I am no expert and my opinions aren't gospel. I hope I didn't come across as rude in these messages either. If I come up with more ideas I will post them later. Good luck!

Somebody on UB Shared Fate

I'm revisiting this deck after a long period of neglect and have had a couple ideas -

A bit pricy but Reflecting Pool seems like it could be a little more consistent than Exotic Orchard. With a manabase tweak toward Unclaimed Territory or Vivid lands it can make rainbow mana pretty often. On the other hand Exotic Orchard is on-budget but essentially produces {1} before Shared Fate and is good for the opponent if they draw it.

Unmoored Ego specifies 'target opponent' so we can really cripple some decks and then after Shared Fate the opponent won't want to cast it on us because they're taking our cards.

Tn a similar vein to Flashback the new Aftermath cards are great since the opponent never gets to cast the bottom half. Farm / Market Never / Return and maybe Cut / Ribbons seem like the best ones for Shared Fate.

I've also been considering a light white splash for more sweepers (Supreme Verdict / Porphyry Nodes) and a lot of sideboard hate cards like (Rest in Peace or Stony Silence). Adding white significantly increases the price of the deck though, especially since fetchlands would become necessary.

First changes maybe something like:
-4 Swamp
-3 Island
-1 Mystic Speculation
-1 Murderous Cut
-1 Dismember
-2 Brainspoil
-2 Spell Pierce

+4 Reflecting Pool
+1 Vivid Creek
+1 Vivid Marsh
+4 Serum Visions
+2 Never // Return
+1 Unmoored Ego
+1 Shared Fate

Nice deck! I love madness. If you don't mind, here are a few suggestions for improvements:

For a madness deck to be good, you shouldn't include cards just because they say madness. Even if the rate of the madness cost is good, remember that that cost is always plus a minimum of a mana (since you had to cast another card beforehand). The only situation in which you will get full value for your madness is off of Liliana, but at that point you could just be casting a better card. Take Fiery Temper for example. I think this is probably the most popular madness card, but also the most over rated. When it is good, it feels reeeallly good. But when it is bad, it is beyond bad. This deck looks to be focused on inevitability, in that your win conditions are big, hard to deal with, threats that WILL win the game if the op does nothing. So would you play Lightning Bolt in this deck? Do you need to burn their face? No. You have hazoret for that. So what is the point of bolt other than creature removal? I understand that it speeds up the game, but my point is, why make it harder to cast bolt by playing fiery temper if it isn't an integral card to the deck anyways? I feel the same way about Biting Rain vs Damnation or Anger of the Gods or Sweltering Suns.

Ok, I'm done saying negative things. Here is what I like about the deck and what I think you can increase. Discarding cards for value is a great feeling. So you should include cards that like to be discarded, other than just madness cards. Like: Bloodghast and Cut / Ribbons. The good thing about cards like these is they can stay in your graveyard and do not have demand immediate mana like the madness cards do. I am not saying you need to cut the madness from the deck, just be very specific with which madness cards you are keeping. Don't just think of them in their best case scenario, but also not in their worst case scenario, you've got to think about things in averages. "on average, how good is this card?" Cards like Faithless Looting, Collective Brutality, and Kolaghan's Command are all great examples of cards that are pretty good most of the time, and are therefore great includes!

Hopefully my ramblings help. Let me know if you have any questions, and if you like my suggestions: check out my podcast all about brewing decks at mtgcoldbrew.buzzsprout.com (we're also on itunes and spotify)

+1 for the refreshing deck idea.

Besides Debt to the Deathless, you may wish to consider Exsanguinate and Cut / Ribbons as redundancy and added wincons. Torment of Hailfire is also a fun card that can be deadly when you've sufficient mana to repeat the process many times over.

Primal Amulet  Flip and Mirari are possible candidates if you wish to up the number of spell doublers in the deck.

I've a Spellslinger based Ramos deck that focuses on doubling spells, churning loads of mana and draining all opponents for the win.

Victory at all mana costs....

I f*cking love Cut // Ribbons it's really the main reason I would ever play black. also Kills Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip and Glorybringer

Hey Thorsgaming82, I really appreciate the suggestions! The power and value of Goblin Guide is undeniable (I have been beaten by my friend's own Jund Modern aggro deck that runs a playset more than enough times), and The other cards are also awesome inclusions... For an aggro deck.

I had the "Aggro" tag up until just now, but I feel now that this deck is more of a control deck. Lightning Bolt may still make an appearance in replace of Cut // Ribbons, but between Cut and Atarka's Command, I am not itching to switch out either (perhaps once I get my hands on Kolaghan's Command, then I'll replace them).

Pyromancer Ascension has no place in an aggro deck -- it's too slow to make any difference in those early turns, but a lategame Control deck can make amazing things happen with that!

Id say remove Cut / Ribbons and 1x Abrade to put in 2x Fatal Push

Honestly Cut // Ribbons is a bit slow, and as much as i love the idea of it, having 1x of it might not be advantageous. its a slot easily used to sideboard in better cards during specific match ups, but in mainboard whats the chance of drawing it? its nice having the ability to kill a 4 toughness creature, however it would be better to use Fight with Fire as Lyra Dawnbringer is a thing that you want to beable to clear from the board by using something other than Glorybringer & Unlicensed Disintegration (And its a good card for long games against control or people with mid range aggro decks) You have a ton of good removal that would help to kill 5 drops or Lyra in general but siding in one of these might be a good idea. OR you can use the slot to put in another Banefire or Abrade.

to be consistent id suggest the sideboard be

For a moment i am a bit torn between using Pia Nalaar & Kari Zev, Skyship Raider instead of Ahn-Crop Crasher & Earthshaker Khenra

Many decks use both.

also is there a reason to be using 4x Rekindling Phoenix and 2x Hazoret the Fervent? just a little curious.

Legendary_penguin_of_death that was the original list I saw that sparked my interest but I wasn't a fan of the enchantment ramp of Gift of Paradise or the potential color issues of BB for Cut // Ribbons in a deck with basically no other black. This list was the one that really stuck out in how focused it is and the inevitability Banefire can give once games go long. I am considering the black splash for (probably) 2 copies of Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip and some number of The Eldest Reborn. This is still just an idea though, and I probably won't jump into buying Bolas until I do some testing and decide it's what the deck wants. It's got game winning potential though and this deck can probably make it to the planeswalker side more easily than anything else in standard currently, so that's tempting in itself. Thanks for the suggestion!
