Eidolon of the Great Revel Discussion

@captainamerica, I'm currently already running a playset of Lightning Bolt. Lava Spike is in for pressure, because the essence of the deck is still burn. I'd consider splashing white for Lightning Helix or maybe just mainboard Abrade's or Roast. I would like to do away with Lava Spike, but I really like having bolt's in the deck. I might cut one for an additional Eidolon of the Great Revel.

Thrun, the Last Troll is also uncounterable and regenerates, so it hoses control better than you might think. It is not nearly as good against midrange compared to control though. But against control they cannot kill it with a board wipe, removal spell, creatures, or countermagic. Except Spell Queller. That card makes me depressed in general. That is one thing you can use Dismembers on though.

Also, I completely agree with what you are saying about Scavenging Ooze. Its slow, takes mana to work, doesn't turn on Experiment One as well as other cards, etc. Until I actually tried Scavenging Ooze I didn't realize how good it is. It avoids any type of bolt effect (after pumping), grinds out well (which will happen sometimes game 1), is mainboard graveyard hate AND lifegain against various strategies, and it becomes huge. I recommend running Avatar of the Resolutes, Strangleroot Geists, a couple Kalonian Tuskers, and some Scavenging Oozes (never 4) all together. Also, having Scavenging Ooze in the main leaves more room in the sideboard.

I run a single Damping Sphere in my sideboard. I am out of room and it slows ME down a considerable amount as well (I would run 2 if I could). And I also just put all of the Dismembers in the sideboard, because I only want them in the matchups they are good. Having to Dismember an Eidolon of the Great Revel or something like that is awful.

Claim / Fame is good with cards like Eidolon of the Great Revel, os i would not call it a single use, card that does nothing without vexing devil. ITs bad against token decks, i agree, and its weak agaisnt decks that run walls biggerr than Wall of Omens, however to say the least such decks are a very minor part of the meta. (And things like storm giving up Goblin Electromancer to chump vexing devil is not something you should have a problem with)
A more realistic fail mode would be being blocked by a hollow one, and making the opponent's clock worse.

Last time i read Gifts Ungiven it said "target opponent chooses two cards...", that for some strange reason literally says the

nobody ever said that Eidolon of the Great Revel is control. what he said was that "skred red" decks are control, thus Eidolon of the Great Revel does not belong. because its not a control type card.

It loses to burn quite easily, may I suggest Leyline of Sanctity? Seem unreasonable I know, but when your deck gets good draws into burn your deck still loses turn 7. Leyline would prevent that damage starting turn opponent turn 3 or 4, stopping the burn in its tracks. (BTW I'm talking about tier two burn, not tier one - because Eidolon of the Great Revel would trigger on about every card here) Also, why are you playing murder?? This is modern, go get yourself some more Grasp of Darkness or my personal favorite, Victim of the night.

bluedragon2k9 the trouble with competitive burn is going to be your budget. Mono red good decks are gonna be in the 3-6 hundred dollar range. Youre gonna need quick creatures like Goblin Guide and Vexing Devil, Eidolon of the Great Revel is gonna punish him for most of his spells. Then you have your staples, Lightning Bolt, Rift Bolt, Lava Spike, things like that. Best thing to do is do your research and get the cards you can afford and as you get better and build up store credit (or more money) grab the other stuff youll need. Until then, just try to find other options that may be weaker but can still fill the spots. I always reccomend soul sisters builds for first time deck builders, its a fun way to interact and learn the game and it actually can compete for a relatively low budget, and theres so many flex things you can do. You can build these for roughly 175-200 bucks based on your mana base. Hope this helps, dont be afraid to reach out and ask more questions if ya have em.
