Fire Covenant Discussion

enpc on The Deckwatch [Home Base]

I do like that Lightning Bolt can be your win condition. I also just ordered 4x Fire Covenant so I'm looking forward to using them once they arrive (though they're coming from the States so it will probably take a while).

Also, I did a thing:

It's basically a casual Food Chainless FCT deck.

escesare on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

2 weeks ago

If you look at the tier 1 deck lists here, many play Toxic Deluge, Cyclonic Rift, and Fire Covenant, and precisely zero copies of board wipes CMC >= 4. Most expensive spells are too slow to play in cEDH. If your Teeg list is helping you against board wipes, that's another indicator that your opponents might not be optimal.

Please don't take it personally. None of us have complete information, which is why these things require open debate and playtesting, and not just one person's experience. And it's certainly not your fault if you're much more proficient than your opponents.

sonnet666 on Food Chain Tazri help

You're pretty far along, so I'll be basing my advice on this: Food Chain Tazri

For starters, Tainted Pact is pretty much an auto-include and isn't too expensive, definitely your first buy. It also gives you enough exile to run Laboratory Maniac as a back-up wincon.

Plunge into Darkness, Mana Vault, Lotus Petal, Chrome Mox, Sylvan Library, Deathrite Shaman, and Carpet of Flowers are all pretty cheap right now, so you should pick them up before anything else. In the meantime Cabal Ritual and Cull the Weak can provide you with extra mana accel. Orcish Lumberjack and Tinder Wall also work if you have red, and you have enough forests for Arbor Elf to function. Cyclonic Rift and Abrupt Decay are also great (and cheap) board control in this build.

Fire Covenant is absolutely beautiful board control at 50 cents. Silence is more of a meta call I think.

However the best thing you could be doing right now is improving your landbase. The quickest way to see results in a deck is to make sure you never have a land coming in tapped.

Get the cheapest lands first: Tarnished Citadel, Llanowar Wastes, City of Brass, Forbidden Orchard, Mana Confluence, Gemstone Caverns(!), Gemstone Mine, Thran Quarry, Reflecting Pool, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Then the rest of your shocks, the cheap fetches, etc. Use checklands like Sunpetal Grove instead of ABUR duals, they're typically the best budget option, although more fastlands can be a viable option too. (All the following are trash that you should cut: Bad River, Flood Plain, Grasslands, Sandsteppe Citadel, Seaside Citadel. The tango-lands like Sunken Hollow are alright for now, but you should cut them as you upgrade.)

Remember to cut Amulet of Vigor, since it won't be helping you.

Once you get rid of the taplands you should also take the deck down to 32 lands. You have enough acceleration to afford it and it will improve your speed.

So, quick poll, what're peoples' thoughts on burn in EDH? specifically cards like Lightning Bolt and even Combust. Do you think they have a place in decks (more looking on the cEDH side of things). I do know that Fire Covenant is quickly becoming a fvourite of a lot of players.

DemonDragonJ on Iconic Masters Announced

1 month ago

I am somewhat excited about this set, but not as excited as I was about Eternal Masters (and I was very excited about that set), because this set does not seem to be the same type of set as the other. Iconic cards are often, but not always, powerful and popular cards, so this set may not have quite as many valuable cards as did Eternal Masters, but I still am excited about it, since I hope to see some older cards reprinted in the new border style.

Some specific cards that I would like to see are Absorb, Backlash, Essence Vortex, Fire Covenant, Fungal Shambler, and Dromar, the Banisher, since none of those cards have ever been reprinted, at all, let alone in the new card frame.

Been a long time brotha I love the updates. This is getting more low to the ground!

If you have another slot open I'd definitely recommend Fire Covenant

I see, that makes sense. I hadn't seen Ricochet Trap until someone suggested it yesterday.

BTW, Fire Covenant is definitely a champ. I used it twice yesterday and both times it really made a splash.

Ok.

How is Fire Covenant working out for you?
