BeaudaciousGiebs on kill ur dudes till they die

1 week ago

Auntie's Hovel, Blood Crypt, Dragonskull Summit, Foreboding Ruins, Smoldering Marsh. Those are some of the most budget ones, depending on your opinion. I feel what you mean by needing to play cheap, unfortunately I tend to build bigger than I play. Sorry if I can't be too much help for good Rakdos Synergy, it's probably my least played guild next to Simic. However, for a different view on token slaughter for damage, check out this deck of mine: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/mardu-alchemy/

Now this looks more like a Jeleva deck! Big, game-winning spells with the ability to copy them all and spread the love! However, I disagree with some of what landofMordor suggested (although some of his other points are spot on). My Jeleva deck has often had difficulty closing out the game. The low creature count and fear from opponent's at what bombs you can cast often makes you an easy target in the early game. I would never cut the large spells that deal damage or take turns because (at least in my meta) you are a deck that really does need those effects to survive. I'm not sure how competitive the decks you're facing are, but my meta isn't very forgiving of slow starts. I also disagree about the need for card draw in a Jeleva deck. The way that most games play out, you really just want to draw lands and ramp in the beginning of the game and leave the huge spells in the deck for Jeleva's ability. Drawing lots of cards means that you can get a glut of huge spells in your hand if you don't find your Brainstorm or Scroll Rack to put them back on the top of your deck. I've never needed to worry about people choosing not to kill my Jeleva, since she is a huge target if she has a big juicy spell exiled. Plus you can always just block with her. I choose instead to run a Crystal Shard and Riptide Laboratory to bounce her and Dualcaster Mage back to my hand in order to use them again if needed, so a bunch of sac effects aren't super necessary imo.

I do agree with the suggestions to swap in powerful spell verisons of effects currently on creatures, like the Spelltwine in for Mnemonic Wall that was mentioned. Deranged Assistant could be upgraded to a Darksteel Ingot or some other artifact mana producer that is immune to your own boardwipes. I agree that Mind Over Matter isn't a good option for this deck. Parallel Thoughts is an interesting choice that I might try out. If you can land it early enough, you can search up the cards that you want to draw early (like lands and Swiftfoot Boots) while increasing the odds of good Jeleva hits. The only other thing would be to upgrade your manabase a little to avoid having so many ETB tapped lands. I'd start by swapping out the guildgates with the buddy lands (Drowned Catacomb, Dragonskull Summit, Sulfur Falls), and go from there. Also Geistblast is a super sweet spell copy effect that isn't totally useless if it's hit with Jeleva's ability, I highly recommend it along with Mirrorpool since they add utility to the deck outside of just copying bomb-tastic spells.

hope some of my reasoning helps!

I know right. My Dragonskull Summits were about $1.50, they aren't standard but damn.

And the odds of getting a dual lands in a booster in the color you need is infinitely small. I guess I just answered myself why they are so high. Lol

xDELCO Thanks, I'll look into it. Now that I'm running 18 land, 4x Gorge looks a bit more doable, and so does running Graven Cairns instead of Dragonskull Summit to justify. Which is probably what I'll do.

I might playtest Young Pyromancer and/or Thermo-Alchemist, but I am decidedly not removing Lava Spike.

Thanks for suggesting.
