Dictate of the Twin Gods Discussion

cyclinggamer on Omnath

1 day ago

Played in a five man pod last night. Might be the first time I've driven omnath correctly, but ramp, ramp, ramp some more, omnath, Where Ancients Tread, valakut as a distraction, Boundless Realms + Dictate of the Twin Gods to kill three of four opponents, leaving one to try to get past omnom and his seven new elementals.

Frustrated I didn't get my usual token and damage doublers, but 70 points of damage with eleven elementals on the field, plus a Perilous Forays in hand? just wow.

Warrior Creatures to Consider:

Non-Warrior Creatures:

Equipment to Consider:

Artifacts to Consider:

Enchantment:

Sorcery:

  • Vandalblast
  • Rout
  • Chandra's Ignition -really great boardwipe for this deck, if zurgo has lifelink you will get that life and also anything that dies will give him counters. You could have zurgo, cast this, and then more than likely one shot a player
  • Read the Bones
  • Open the Armory
  • Disrupt Decorum tapped out won't link this for some reason

Instants: (sticking with four or less Cmc for sunforger shenanigans)

Land:

Notes:

Mardu is great for control, so its best to have plenty of removal spells. I would not have Spinerock Knoll since it might be too slow. Windbrisk Heights might be better than Spinerock tho. Like what if you need to play that spell but can't get 7 damage off. Also, Graveblade Marauder seems too situational to leave an impact. When you start adding/removal stuff to the deck, make sure to keep it low cmc as you can since you don't have much in terms of ramp in these colors; be sure to keep as mana rocks as you can for the same reason.

@trygin I just realized the insane combo of Dictate of the Twin Gods + Havoc Festival... Holy shit. I might build a deck around that :O

Thanks a lot for the reply trygin! I actually have a copy of Dictate of the Twin Gods and you're right that it fits the theme really well, I'll run it.

Ashenmoor Liege is amazing here, I can play it on turn 2 with a ritual and play a 5/5 Grenzo on turn 3 which is epic indeed, it's also a great contribution to the devotion Mogis, God of Slaughter requires. I like Fanatic of Mogis and I'd definitely run it in a 'pure' minotaur deck but it does a little too less for me in this deck (I guess my deck might be more of a combo than an aggro deck,) also I don't want to burn too much because it might screw up Scourge of the Throne's ability. Knollspine Dragon is awesome but I want to be able to get out every creature with a 5/5 Grenzo (maybe I should even take out Mogis at some point.) Havoc Festival might work as a sideboard card. I also didn't know Terminate yet but it's awesome and (almost) strictly better than Terror.

I'll definitely get my hands on these at some point, thanks for the tips =)

I'll update this list when I change the actual deck, I like to keep it up-to-date.

Some cards that would fit really well:Dictate of the Twin Gods Makes your deck even more potent, 1 copy would suffice. Flash makes this extremely deadly in your theme.

Ashenmoor Liege This card is obviously nuts in your deck, you have so many black/red creatures that get BOTH the buff benefits, and then the amazing burn effect. Definition of a great aggro fit.

Fanatic of Mogis Fun card for your deck, minotaur synergy and cheap card too. Might be cool!

Knollspine Dragon Wicked endgame dragon, synergy with zirilian the claw and ofc grenzo, might be amazing as 1x!

Havoc Festival Just a really interesting card, who knows might be cool? (very slow though)

Terminate No explaination needed, insane card in your deck.

Good luck with the deck, looks really fun!

The curve feels too high, and some of your card choices are fairly low-impact. Cunning Sparkmage and Vulshok Sorcerer are best in combo lists ( Banishing Knack/Intruder Alarm/Cowardice/Fractured Loyalty/Power of Fire ) where they are a win condition rather than anything playing more linear, because 1 damage/turn for three mana is weak on its own.

They can work in more casual Deep-Slumber Titan lists. With Goblin Fireslinger existing though, (used for the bloodthirst mechanic) they almost never see play. Gorgon's head synergy just isn't reliable enough to see play outside Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile commander, and is best non-budget for Basilisk Collar.

Looking for that kind of synergy is exactly the right mindset for effective budget deckbuilding, you just need to get used to all the options so you can find the good stuff.

Its best to go hard on exactly what you want to do with a deck, especially as a budget list. Expensive cards are usually the most versatile cards (or cards with no alternatives). So to play budget effectively, you need a strategy that keeps cropping up in MTG and go all-in. A direct damage burst with Quest is a good choice, and so is the incredible efficiency of Shrapnel Blast, so lets build around those. You want to spend a single turn taking somone from 14-15 to 0 with artifacts on the field.

Go to gatherer, advanced search. Search for red enchantments that might sit alongside quest to help hit that 'eight copy reliable' stage. Anything that catches your eye, add it to the maybeboard, so you can see how much each card costs. We can also do a search for 'double damage' and 'whenever a source damage' to pick up other likely options.

Don't grab cards costing 6 or more mana, because unless you build your entire deck to cast them, you'll never cast them. Assault Strobe, Temur Battle Rage, Dictate of the Twin Gods ( Fire Servant ), ( Curse of Bloodletting )Insult,Overblaze, The Flame of Keld all stand out to me.

But with them all sitting in or around the 5 mana slot, or being creatures pump spells, suddenly we have some deckbuilding restrictions. We need either a bunch of damage on the field which we abruptly double and win, or to spend five mana getting one to the battlefield then cast a bunch of spells.

So lets look at the tools mono-red has to do that. For the former, there are agressive creatures like Keldon Marauders, Mogg Fanatic, Mortarpod, , Seal of Fire Zektar Shrine Expedition, Emberwilde Augur etc, for the latter Fling Spark Elemental etc.

Getting a big list of all the options then picking the best, looking at both price and effect is a good habit to get into with deckbuilding- Learning to trim the fat and spot strong options helps immensely with draft formats, and can help massively streamline your lists. If you are having trouble finding options, look into the archived standard deckbuilding discussions for an archetype that might have useful tools, and steal those.

Just remember, redundant copies of any spell makes it good, and casting spells on turns 1-2-3 is very good.

Dictate of the Twin Gods and Furnace of Rath double damamge too

Felidar Sovereign and Test of Endurance are easy wincons especially if you flash them in with Vedalken Orrery

Angelic Accord Can make you an army of flyers that avoid most of red x wipes.

Flame Rift Sizzle Cheap burn

Browbeat Molten Psyche Burn or card draw

Boon Reflection Alhammarret's Archive Doubles lifegain and archive doubles draw

Chandra, Torch of Defiance Jaya Ballard Ramp and draw. if you ever ult, Chandra gives extra burn and Jaya gives recursion

Balefire Liege Mini Firesong & Sunspeaker

Take what you want. I am making a Firesong Sunspeaker deck too Burn Alive if you want more ideas.

Jote on Burn it up

I would consider cutting Volcanic Offering (too expensive just to remove a couple creatures and doesn't hit face), Dictate of the Twin Gods (you already have some of these effects and this one can backfire), possibly Furnace of Rath for the same reason.

Fanatic of Mogis and Iroas, God of Victory seem to have synergy with some cards in the deck, but flop with what your commander is trying to do.
