Fire Diamond enters the battlefield tapped.

Fire Diamond Discussion

Man, it really hurts me to see cards like
in commander. Also it seems to be common for decks to have way to little ramp (4 in this case). I would highly suggest running about 10 in every deck. In this deck, you might want to favor rocks that can help you cast
Rakdos, Lord of Riots
a turn early.
Cards that come to mind are:
- Rakdos Signet
- Talisman of Indulgence
- Fellwar Stone
- Coldsteel Heart
- Charcoal Diamond
- Fire Diamond
- Pentad Prism
- Star Compass
- Sphere of the Suns
- Wayfarer's Bauble
There are also great colorless rocks, as well as rocks that don't help you cast Rakdos early, but that can give you big advanteges in the mid- to lategame. Please consider that you might not always be able to count on Rakdos's ability to cast your expensive creatures. If your commander gets stolen or permanently removed, you should have ways to not outright lose:

Hey there! I've also begun working on my own Daretti Oathbreaker list with Trash for Treasure as the signature spell, but I'm focusing more on cheating Stax artifacts like God-Pharaoh's Statue and Trinisphere into play.
I think Jhoira's Familiar should be included, wouldn't you say? Not only does it reduce the cost of every artifact in the deck, but it also makes Daretti easier to cast too! Mind Stone , Fire Diamond , and Ruby Medallion are cheap ramp options that can also be traded for something more powerful down the line.
What do you think? I'm new to Oathbreaker, so I could be approaching this from too Commander a mindset.

Unfortunately you're going to have a bit of an issue playing control, burn (stormesqure considering Dragonstorm AND dragons in the same deck in that you only have so many card slots available.
However if you do want to make it work, lots of ramp will be the key - dragons are quite mana heavy and you want to be able to play them as you draw them.
Mana rocks will be a huge help here: Izzet Signet , Talisman of Creativity , Mind Stone , Sky Diamond , Fire Diamond , etc. will all be worth running. I would recommend at least 10 mana rocks if you want to curve out with dragons.
I would also recommend using one of the Niv Mizzets as your commander as they all provide some form of card advantage and are pretty on theme.

You should probably run around 10 mana ramp sources, and your land count should probably go up to around 37 with such a top-heavy deck. Talisman of Indulgence , Rakdos Signet , Worn Powerstone , Thran Dynamo , and even Iron Myr , Copper Myr , Alloy Myr , and Plague Myr work in a deck like this. Hazoret's Monument can be decent. Charcoal Diamond and Fire Diamond come into play tapped, but only cost 2 apiece.

Hey my friend ! I'm a tribal player too and I find your deck really nice !
Do you know how many cards you'll draw on average with Goblin Ringleader ? I have tried a long time ago Tidal Courier for my competitive Merfolk duel commander deck. I found that for a 4 CMC this card was pretty bad and I got approximately the same amount of merfolks in my deck than goblins you have in yours. Maybe it is because blue has other best way to draw cards... Whatever. It is probably your highest converted mana cost card and I'm not sure you'll get as much value as you want from it. A wheel would probably be better :)
Can you tell us a bit about which kind of decks your struggling against ?
Have you try Shared Animosity ?
I stop bothering you there :p ; if you like tribal decks in duel commander feel free to check my fishy stuff ! Have a nice day

Sorry about the late replies, finally back home :p
TwinStags I am really liking Aria of Flame yeah, It is recurable with Sun Titan unlike Aetherflux Reservoir and doesn't force us to go all out in a single turn, allowing us to play more conservatively in order to make our board safer. I'll detail the cards being tested at the end of this post.
czarkingrex Any deck can be made without the very expensive manabase, but that would also make every deck weaker. This is a cEDH deck and in the worst colors, Boros. Any cuts to the quality and consistency of the deck will destroy any chance it has in a competitive environment. You can of course take the really expensive ones out, starting with Grim Monolith and just bring this deck to a more casual table. Just dont expect to be landing any turn 2 Feather, the Redeemed 's when your mana base looks like Fire Diamond
WHICH BRINGS ME TO THE NEXT PART OF THIS POST. I will detail all the cards being used in testing for this deck from the Modern Horizons set now that all cards have been reveled.
I will be testing all of these cards, each to varying degrees. I will not update the list until I have fully tested all of them, so dont freak out if you dont see obvious additions such as Talisman of Conviction for a few days. Look forward to it ( ^-^)
