Commander / EDH Viera


I recreated my Xira Arien list. Would love some critic (upvotes too) on how this revision went. The changes I made incorporates the Worldgorger Dragon combo with OG Fireball and sneaky Sunscorched Desert. My backup plan involves Thespian Depths; Thespian Stage + Dark Depths.

Actually, Fireball would be a poor target for Entropic Repercussion. The copy would do nothing, and it's CMC for the backfire is only 1, regardless of how much was paid into X. A better choice of last words for your anonymous task mage would be "Flame Wave!!!"

Hey, thanks for the suggestions! I think Shamanic Revelation, Fireball and/or Voice of Many will find their way into the 99 :)

Great deck! I'm always a fan of smacking people in the face in EDH.

some suggestions: since you're gonna be spending some BIG mana, why not include a Fireball or two as a classic elfball wincon? If you are looking for another untapper that is a bit more resilient, maybe consider Awakening. Finally, I'm not entirely convinced by the draw package. Shamanic Revelation and Collective Unconscious strike me as the most desirable draw effects when going wide. Also, Voice of Many and Elvish Visionary would be elves that draw cards and be repeatable with Wirewood Symbiote. Just my 2 cents, maybe some of these are helpful

Good to know! Thanks for telling me.

With that in mind, you might want to consider switching commanders. Looking at Iroas, the only spellslinging his abilities really let you do are big damage spells during combat since your creatures are protected. Otherwise, his abilities really favor creatures and attacking.

If you want to build a more spellslinging Boros deck, consider looking at Feather, the Redeemed or Firesong and Sunspeaker. They can both do spellslinging in different ways. Feather likes doing it with cantrips and small burn effects (Guttersnipe, Aria of Flame, etc.), whereas Firesong likes doing the big burn spells (Earthquake, Magmaquake, Fireball, etc.).

Good luck! I'm happy to help too!

Alkadron on PDH(UBR) - madness? THIS. IS. VALUETOWN!

Oh, ok.  I misunderstood.  Sorry.

Capsize is probably the most popular combo payoff.

Fireball and Rolling Thunder can kill multiple players at once if you've got unlimited mana.

Thermo-Alchemist and Firebrand Archer are good outs.  They don't even use the mana you generate.  These work really well if you're using Cloud of Faeries as an alternative Drake.  If you can get two lands that produce three mana, like an Izzet Boilerworks and an island, you won't gain any mana with each iteration of the faeries combo, but you'll generate damage with the Alchemist and/or Archer.

If you've got two of the "return a spell from the graveyard" creatures, you can close out the game with a lightning bolt or any burn spell that hits faces, like you suggested.  First you flicker the Drake and one "return spell" creature until you have enough mana, then you start flickering both "return spell" creatures to get back the bolt and flicker each time.

Freed from the Real gets used in a lot of other combos; pairing that up with a Viridian Longbow, Hermetic Study, or Psionic Gift will get the job done.

Black has a couple creatures that mill on EtB, like Sibsig Host.  If you've got the flicker combo online and no one forces you to draw at instant speed, those can close a game.

This is just what I'm thinking off the top of my head.  I'm sure there are a lot of others, I'm just not very familiar with them - I don't really use them, and I also don't often play against people who use them, I just kind of peripherally know they exist.  

I am on the PDH Homebase Discord Server, though, which contains a lot of folks who are much more knowledgeable about infinite combos than I.  If you remain curious about it, you should join us:

DemonDragonJ on Signature Spellbook: Chandra

The next installment in the Signature Spellbook series has been announced, and it is Signature Spellbook: Chandra!

I imagine that many people predicted that there would eventually be an SS for Chandra, so this is not a major surprise, but what is good about this announcement is that the Signature Spellbook series shall continue, since I was worried that the Commander Collection series had replaced SS, so I am very glad to see that that is not the case.

The first two cards to be revealed are:

Chandra, Torch of Defiance

Past in Flames

Which is surprising, since the first two Signature Spellbooks (Jace and Gideon) contained the original incarnations of those characters, whereas this installment contains a newer version of its character.

Judging from the inclusion of PiF, I believe that it is safe to presume that this set shall have a great emphasis on instants and sorceries. Among the cards that I am hoping to see are Chandra's Fury, Chandra's Outrage, and/or Chandra's Phoenix. A user on another forum wished to see Fireball, a classic red spell, in this set, but I would rather see either Rolling Thunder or Comet Storm, since they are both vastly superior to fireball for only one more red mana each.

This product shall be released on June 26, 2020, so I shall be certain to update this thread as further information is revealed.

What does everyone else say about this? Are you excited for this product?

I do not mind at all. Also, I cannot stress enough that you need to keep in Kindred Discovery because it can be an amazing draw engine with the Worldgorger combo turn, especially if you are going for a win condition like a Fireball type effect that you would want to dig in the deck for. If you do not want to incidentally draw your deck on your combo turn then take it out but if you do want an additional win condition, I recommend Torment of Hailfire.
