Empty the Warrens Discussion
1 day ago
That's certainly something to consider. The Deed also hits my own equipment from Stoneforge Mystic unless it's a Batterskull, which is why I'm hesitant to maindeck it. Pernicious Deed works a lot better in decks that are trying to ramp into Thragtusk and such. Card selection in a midrange deck like this can get a little tricky because of the balance between synergy and power. Obviously slamming Deed would be an argument in favor of "power", but then the question is whether it's worth the cost in synergy. Same with Toxic Deluge, but with Empty the Warrens so big right now I feel like a sweeper maindeck is relevant. Definitely something for me to think about though.
The mana is a little weird, but it works. I do it more often in Modern, but I'm not scared to throw down a filterland or even a check or fastland if it fits. Being able to cast Hymn to Tourach off a turn 1 Horizon Canopy or Dryad Arbor can be a big surprise too, and they often aren't expecting the hymn when they see the non-black source turn 1.

Note that the Lightning Helix's are OG Ravnica and HP, so I adjusted the price to the lowest you can buy a HP Rav one: $4.38. As always happy to provide pics :)
Otherwise the prices are all the prices listed on the site (TCG median?). The Path to Exile is the foil FNM promo.
I went by the editions listed on your decklist, so if any are different let me know!
Non-storm cards I was interested in are your Remands but I can take them out of the trade if you don't want to trade 'em.
Does this look okay to you? & PLEASE check my math it's not my specialty @_@

There are a number of cheap, effective red kards Keldon Marauders has fallen out of favour, but is a 2 mana lava axe when it works. Nivmagus Elemental is cheap and provides limited counterspell protection and the oppertunity for combo finishes with Temur Battle Rage. Sin Prodder is dirt cheap and very effective, even without cheap delve.
With super budget the lack of lightning bolt hurts red, and lack of boros charm red white so janky combo is usually the most functional option. Board flooding with Mogg War Marshal, Foundry Street Denizen Dragon Fodder Battle Hymn Dragonrage Akroan Crusader Empty the Warrens, Haze of Rage and so forth to spam out a win. Guttersnipe used to be good but has fallen to more efficient options, leaving him pretty cheap.
Human tribal with Keldon Marauders/Thatcher Revolt/Kessig Malcontents is functional, especially with Gather the Townsfolk and Dearly Departed/Cathartic Reunion. For the non-$10 version there are some very competitive lists out there, but there are a lot of cards in modern that aren't valuable because they just aren't in short supply but are still super good.

A decent base here, though I feel like you're missing a fair number of staples for this deck. Here is a list of cards you could try out Siege-Gang Commander, Goblin Chieftain, Goblin King, Goblin Chirurgeon, Goblin Lackey, Warren Instigator, Door of Destinies, Quest for the Goblin Lord, Goblin Ringleader, Patron of the Akki, Cavern of Souls, and Empty the Warrens.

I'd suggest replacing Pyrostatic Pillar with Eidolon of the Great Revel even though the pillar is harder to remove, but the Eidolon can also attack, so I think it would be better to help you win that race when you play it, because your own deck has several cards with CMC 3 or less!

I would highly suggest as a win condition to run storm cards. Ignite Memories, Mind's Desire, Empty the Warrens, Grapeshot, and Mizzix's Mastery are all good win conditions for the deck, storm-y cards such as Baral's Expertise, Gitaxian Probe, Mana Geyser, Time Spiral, Frantic Search, Seething Song, Turnabout, Pyretic Ritual to keep the engine running
