Dictate of the Twin Gods Discussion

If You are really into focusing on Ashling ability, I suggest Heartstone and all those damage doublers such as Dictate of the Twin Gods or Furnace of Rath.

Dictate of the Twin Gods would essentially quadruple the damage dealt by your Bolt, and Curse of Bloodletting would also double the damage dealt to your opponents. Reverberate would let you target another player if you were in a multiplayer game.

Love the gratuity to that Bolt scenario. Tis a shame Gratuitous Violence only works on damage dealt by creatures...

Talk about throwing stones. XD in all seriousness, this is a fantastic deck. However, it doesn't seem quite as fast. Have you considered all the damage doublers like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Dictate of the Twin Gods? Even Gratuitous Violence and Inquisitor's Flail feel like they should be included in here since it's mainly a Boros beat-'em-up theme deck. XD

Either way, it's gotta be fantastic to play with. Hope you have fun.

Is Lupine Prototype really needed?I think it can't attack most of the time and by the time it can attack, there are bugger creatures, and if you want to fling it, it will cost you 4 mana and 2 cards for 5 damage. Lightning Bolt can do the trick for 3 damage instead of 5, but it cost 1 mana and it doesn't waste a Fling.

I would switch it with Dictate of the Twin Gods.

It is really helpful and it has flash which means you can win just by dealing 10 damage.

If you don't want D.O.T.T.G, Lightning Bolt and Grapeshot are nice too.

Love the deck. I built a budget Purphoros deck during a friends $100 challenge but I'm looking to upgrade it, and this is exactly what I was looking for. While a lot of your synergies were the same as mine, there's a handful of cards I ran and wanted to hear what you thought.

sashaza, I feel like my Queen Marchesa build does not have enough permanents that would take advantage of Vedalken Orrery. I also like both Gisela's more than Dictate of the Twin Gods.

MegaMatt13 I also really like the suggestion of Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion instead of Slayers' Stronghold. Definitely gonna try that as double strike has proven to be a great political tool.

precociousapprentice Thanks for the reply. I think I'm going to try Gisela, the Broken Blade, as well as Gisela, Blade of Goldnight instead of Dictate of the Twin Gods. I prefer the asymmetrical effect and it feels less scary to play.

What are your guy's thoughts on Vedalken Orrery? I can imagine holding rattlesnake permanents in hand as instants could be very powerful..
