Id swap out hellrider for something you can abuse better. Hellrider is a better form of Embermaw Hellion, which isnt a very powerful card in its own right. Maybe add in some sort of token generator? Verdant Force is decent. Ive always found battledriver to be a drop early game. If i dont get it early game in my ruric thar deck, ill let him sit for discard fodder. Early game he is a beast

You may already be aware, but Repercussion becomes a win con if you have no creatures and cast Blasphemous Act. Everlasting Torment and Embermaw Hellion would also be a good fit for this deck. Koskun Falls and No Mercy could be good ways to keep damage you take to a minimum.

TheMadRocketeer on Ruric Thar, May I?

I really need to add the Fierce Empaths here. This deck is all about getting Ruric Thar, the Unbowed onto the field as soon as possible and doing nice effects through creatures alone. While, as of this posting, Fierce Empath can find me only 7 cards (2x Forgestoker Dragon, 2x Inferno Titan, and 3x Ruric Thar, the Unbowed), these represent half of the current set of beaters in the deck and generally are the cards I most want to make sure I find. Just getting Ruric Thar, the Unbowed out ASAP is already worth the inclusion of Fierce Empath. Another advantage I see in doing this is that it would possibly allow me to move 1 each of Forgestoker Dragon and Inferno Titan to the sideboard, dropping the mana curve a bit, though that may be a bad idea.

The deck could use help to more quickly find the creatures and land it needs, and it could use improved ramp to be able to do more than one big thing at a time.

Maybe Frontier Siege for improved ramp? Maybe Outpost Siege for draw? Neither is a creature, though.

Now, how to make room?

  • Remove Embermaw Hellion? It's nice, but it may be sort of an unnecessary damage-more card in this line-up.
  • Wickerbough Elder is my only artifact or enchantment removal, but it's just 1 card of 60, and therefore unlikely to show up in a given game anyway, so it's a candidate for deletion, probably.
  • Dense Foliage stays for sure. That thing's been incredible. Worth a 6 point hit, even, it it comes to it. I'd include 1 more if I owned another.
  • What else?
  • Thoughts?

    Thanks for the compliment Suaz14! Here are some more. Please excuse my need to recommend creature spells... It's my favorite card type. I'll be sure to include some non-creatures as well!

    You'll probably want to be drawing cards while your opponents are forced to discard cards because they're missing land drops or just barely making the cut at 7 cards in hand. In any case Sandstone Oracle is a budget friendly draw spell. There are plenty of other better options too, but it was just a thought.

    I'm not going to be cruel and "suggest" the cards above, that's a lot of clicking around for you to do. So I'll just leave the list here. Hopefully you see something that sparks some interest!

    Obviously you want ramp and untap effects. Illusionist's Bracers, Magewright's Stone, Staff of Domination off the top of my head. For ramp, Sol Ring and Mana Crypt (duh). Also Thran Dynamo, Mind Stone, Thought Vessel, Dreamstone Hedron, and Hedron Archive. Theres always the random extra damage effects too, like Embermaw Hellion
