Embercleave Discussion

I have something for you

Godo, Bandit Warlord and Embercleave

Godo will attack first for 16 damage and give himself an extra combat. This extra combat will do 32 damage for a total of 48 trample damage.

Now you can one-shot people through their blockers.

20 lands is not good enough. You need at least 22, maybe as many as 24. Shock is not good in this meta. You need cheap fast creatures, rather than burn. Light Up the Stage is a necessity, to get you cards when you're running out of gas (so, turn 4-5 with aggro!).

Really, the core issue is going to come down to you not having Embercleave. It's busted, and never is it more busted than in this deck. Use proxies if this is casual, shell out the $100 or so if it's not.

With mono-red, I think Dovin's Veto is an important card to bring in. It can stop a Stomp, it can deal with those rogue Infuriates, and MOST importantly, it deals with Embercleave.

That is a problem for such a large creature, but the number of times we can use him on an empty board (especially if you regard my theory about Sorcerous Spyglass and Dream Trawler) or use him for the ability is still staggering!

Helm of the Host for combo with godo or value with etali

Maybe Embercleave to go with Godo

Maybe add High Market to stop theft effects

Arcane Signet > Prismatic lens

Gauntlet of Power and Wheel of Fortune

Endless Atlas 100%

There is a 2 drop red card I think that adds mana (I think for dinos and gives them haste, I forgot what it's called, probably from Ixalan set, look it up)

Command Beacon


You have a lot of haste outlets, cut need for speed as it's the worst redundancy.

Outpost Siege in your maybeboard should go in. Even without you using top in response to the trigger (to ensure you always have something to cast and get the free card draw), its good stable card draw that you will need.

Mind's eye most def, you NEED card draw. I can't understate this

No Dockside Extortionist?

Also, just food for thought but Embercleave on a Shambling Suit is game-ending

IAmNotConnie on Boros Knights Standard on a Budget

Yeah, contemplated throwing in some equipments briefly, but that would dilute the game plan too much and slow the deck down considerably, Embercleave nonwithstanding, but that's sliiiiiiiightly out of my price range :P

If its themed Lifegain why not add some Heliod, Sun-Crowned? his habilities can be used even if he is not a creature.

You can also consider Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord it gives lifelink to your creatures during your turn, and you can bring back some dead, remember that you can even bring Heliod from the dead, cause when hes not in the battlefield he always count as a creature.

Instead of Murder you could consider Mortify , does the same and has range for enchantments.

Despark is a great cart to consider aswell, it removes from the game anything costing 4 or more at instant speed (great response to a Embercleave/The Great Henge, Questing Beast or any of the expensive Gods).

Your mana base could also get a fix, for that Godless Shrine, Temple of Silence, Scoured Barrens can help immensely.

You could also take a look for the Eldraine utility lands Castle Locthwain, Castle Locthwain.
