Dictate of the Twin Gods



If a source would deal damage to a permanent or player, it deals double that damage to that permanent or player instead.

Dictate of the Twin Gods Discussion

Dictate of the Twin Gods for surprise damage amplification would be cool.

McToters on Torbran and the Burning Flames of Fire

Hey, cool deck! Some suggestions off the top of my head (most likely will come down to personal preference):

Inferno reckless and lots of damage

Rain of Embers cheap and effective

Aggravate interesting and different

Balefire Dragon 7cmc but can do work. Very one-sided

Pyromancer's Goggles for some added copying!

I realize you already have Furnace of Rath and Dictate of the Twin Gods but Gratuitous Violence seems like it would help you more instead of Quest for Pure Flame . Pure flame is cheaper cmc but I don’t see it being as effective.

Hope some of those help! +1

Nice! Weird damage loops are fun. You might like these: Gideon's Sacrifice , Saving Grace , Frilled Deathspitter , Lapse of Certainty , Gratuitous Violence (with this, if Reckoner has indestructible, he can keep targetting himself and each time the damage multiplies by 2. then when the damage is high enough he can target an opponent to one-shot them), Angrath's Marauders , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath , Quest for Pure Flame , Heartless Hidetsugu , Selfless Squire , Stonehewer Giant , Open the Armory , Heliod's Pilgrim

I've been working on this dude too. I've found that pingers and damage doubles are the way to go. Furnace of Rath with Dictate of the Twin Gods (which you already have in the deck) ups the damage of things like Thermo-Alchemist up an absurd amount; if you have your commander out with the enchantments you're doing 12 damage to everyone per tap.

Whenever a spell you control would be countered, you may draw two cards. If you do, exile a card from your hand.

Whenever a permanent you control would be destroyed, you may pay life equal to its converted mana cost. If you do, put it into your hand instead of your graveyard.

Discard three cards: You may cast target spell you own in exile.


First ability fills your hand up and allows you to exile bombs for later use. Second ability ensures your hand is always full. Third ability allows you to cast those bombs you set aside, now that you have the mana to do so.

Granted, the first ability may not see a lot of use. Meh.

Challenge: Make a Sorcery that depicts an epic battle between Omnath, Locus of the Roil and Yarok, the Desecrated . Similar to cards such as Crux of Fate , Dictate of the Twin Gods & Single Combat .

Atuva on Commander / EDH Starter Deck (The Essentials)

No Bojuka Bog , Exotic Orchard , Commander's Sphere , Field of Ruin , or any of the Talismans. Yet, I see Path to Exile , Strip Mine , Phyrexian Arena , and Rhystic Study . While all of these are commander staples in their respective colors, I'd recommend refining the deck before just making a budget '5 color Good Junk' deck. While card advantage is great, the money would be better spent on something like Smothering Tithe , Revel in Riches , Black Market , Land Tax , Exploration , or Burgeoning . At least those will help cast your commander faster.

Cut out some of the nonbasic lands, starting with guildgates, and put in the Panorama lands, and swap the bounce lands for basic lands (unless you intend to add landfall).

Where's the quick ramp spells? Cards like Farseek , Cultivate , Explosive Vegetation , and Rampant Growth .

Furthermore, there's a severe lack of tutors. Diabolic Tutor , Diabolic Revelation , Open the Armory and Eladamri's Call are all very budget-friendly tutor staples for EDH.

I also see that you're running Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower , but have you considered Spell Book, Praetor's Counsel , or Library of Leng ? Library of Leng has the added benefit of protecting you from discard effects. If you're going to run cards like Phyrexian Arena and Rhystic Study it pays to protect your hand.

How about protection yourself while you're at it. Crawlspace , Norn's Annex , Sphere of Safety , Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Glacial Chasm , Solitary Confinement and other such cards make great protection for decks with few to no other creatures.

Back to the subject of drawing cards. What are you even trying to draw for? You don't seem to have any major combos worth drawing for. At least throw in some cards like Furnace of Rath , Bitter Feud , Curse of Bloodletting , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Inquisitor's Flail , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , and/or some double strike equipment/enchantments. Or Helm of the Host with a toke copying effect like Parallel Lives , Anointed Procession , Growing Ranks , Second Harvest , Rhys the Redeemed , and Primal Vigor .

Just some things to think about.
