Electrickery Discussion

RhythmBeast on Torbran, Thane of Addition and Multiplication

Have you thought of switching Blazing Volley for Electrickery ? I know Volley is one less mana for the wide effect, but Trickery is instant speed and has a bolt-like mode when Torbran is on the field.

Have you considered a Gurmag Angler ? Electrickery is one of the most common sideboard options and this deck only has one card that won't die to that.

Thanks for the suggestions. Volcanic Fallout is currently on my list of cards to try to fit into the deck. Electrickery seems underwhelming in comparison.

Magebane Armor would make a good combo with Pariah's Shield . Other than that I don't often have issues with Torbran dying to my own sweepers, due to his effect's asymmetrical nature. Pyrohemia and Breath of Darigaaz are the only two of my own spells that I can remember killing Torbran.

Tempt with Vengeance and Repercussion would both be effective inclusions to the deck, but they are out of it's price range.

I experimented with Flame Fusillade while I was first putting the deck together, and I wasn't impressed. If the deck was more focused on making lots of tokens, I could see it working.

Repercussion might fall under group slug category, but the element of burst it adds to all damage-based boardwipes, and also comboes well with our commander, doubling his effect. It is a must answer and never stays on board for a long time, though with instant speed 1 damage sweepers such as Electrickery or Volcanic Fallout you can respond before it is destroyed. Personally ive also liked addition of Pariah's Shield and Magebane Armor protecting ourself and our commander from burn damage. In the top-end i also run Flame Fusillade as a noncombat way to finish the game, and although bit pricy Tempt with Vengeance is good token generator, especially with Impact Tremors on field.

Profet93: you're not saying anything i dont already know. you're missing my entire point. until you draw that burn spell, Living Plane is a dead card in hand because you wouldn't want to cast it and risk having your lands be destroyed. but what if you never draw that burn spell? then you're just SOL. but in response to your question, Electrickery itself is an instant they might use.

Because it costs a lot of cards/resources...

You should look into Living Plane + Electrickery does the same thing much more easily.

Blue_Flame Thanks for the upvote! I was glad I found Folk Medicine too, it can really end up being a blowout against a lot of aggro decks.

As far as Evolving Wilds and Ash Barrens go, I see your point. I might rather just play some Blossoming Sands instead so I can gain a little bit more life and even gain some value with Selesnya Sanctuary returning them to my hand if I get desperate. Is there a reason I’d want either of the cards you mentioned over Blossoming Sands ?

And great point about Electrickery , I’ll definitely look into some sideboard options for that. I do notice that it would only affect Squadron Hawk and Elvish Visionary (which I don’t really care about dying, so I’m not sure if it would be that devastating. But I’ll definitely take another look at the sideboard.

Thanks again for the suggestions!

Folk Medicine is a cool piece of tech in this deck. I've never seen that card before.

I think I'd put 2 Evolving Wilds and 2 Ash Barrens in your manabase in place of 4 basics. Having a lot of basics in your manabase can cause consistency problems even if it's an even split, and not having access to green or white looks like it'll really hurt this deck. You're not doing anything turn 1 anyways in this deck so you might as well spend it fixing your mana.

Also Lumithread Field / Spidersilk Armor might be a sideboard consideration because if I was your opponent, I'd surely be bringing in Electrickery against you.
