Volatility seems bad as well but I like where you're going with it. Maybe swap it out for Flame Rift . Mox Tantalite is incredibly bad unless you draw it in your opening hand.

My apologies; I was honestly just throwing ideas out in case any of them helped. :'(

The curve just looks really high for a sligh deck. I mean, I get that a sligh deck in Oathbreaker has to have a higher curve to deal with 60 points of opposing life, but I think games are going to go a while specifically because of you still have to grind through a whopping 60 points of life, even if it's a lot less than the 120 of traditional EDH. In my limited experience, I've generally found that being the aggro is what gets you killed first in multiplayer. Slumbering Dragon disincentivizes people from randomly aggroing you or Sarkhan, but maybe Oathbreaker is just really combo-y, and maybe almost no one is going to bother attacking incrementally. I don't know; I haven't played it much. Question though: if you're on the sligh plan, would Price of Progress , Flame Rift , or Slagstorm be better signature spells than the grindier Volt Charge ? (The first two would telegraph your aggressive game plan, but Slagstorm doesn't because it's optionally a sweeper.)

Kargan Dragonlord might be part of your early game, but his impact is low without a huge mana investment. Something like Eidolon of the Great Revel and/or Scab-Clan Berserker would seem more impactful with less investment. It's a very different format, but I've played Sulfuric Vortex in Legacy Burn, and it's rarely been particularly impressive. It's not a card for racing; it's a card for grinding. The damage output is high over time for the mana investment, but it's spread evenly among players - including you - and it can draw disproportionate aggro in multiplayer.

Sorry about the Thunderbreak suggestion. I must have overlooked it at the time.

I'll not bother you further. Best wishes.

A massive update this time. One that I'm very excited about. Here are the changes:

Overall, the deck is faster and more consistent. Here's a summary of changes by card category:

  • direct damage is now at lower cmc
  • -1 Ramp
  • +1 protection/haste
  • +2 tutor
  • +5 draw
  • +1 anti-control
  • -4 Creature removal
  • -2 graveyard hate
  • -1 discard
  • -1 extra attack
  • -1 lifegain/recursion
  • +1 removal

So the changes overall are lower cmc, more draw and tutor, less creature removal and less utility (graveyard hate, extra attacks, etc.) Overall, the early turn plays to get direct damage and get Rakdos out are far more prevalent. The deck is more aggressive and more focused now, and plays much smoother.

And yes, this is the only deck I have where I've taken out Sol Ring . It's simply better to have only colored mana in order to cast Rakdos as consistently as possible!

What are your thoughts on enablers for Rakdos such as:

Flame Rift
Fiery Confluence

New cards from WAR:

Liliana's Triumph
Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted

And lastly maybe Sunbird's Invocation since the deck is already cheating out big demons for cheap?

I like how you are starting. Personally burn decks are one of my favorites. I think some tips I have are to get cheaper spells. I would recommend taking out Fireblast (even though you can sacrifice two mountains instead). You definitely should add Shock (a MUST for a burn deck) and Wild Slash (basically a better version of Shock .) I really think you should check out my burn deck for more ideas. I will also take some inspiration from this burn deck to add to mine, including Thunderous Wrath and Flame Rift . Great deck!

I forgot Flame Rift and Book Burning . I use Blur of Blades a lot and find it very useful. if you like STRONG BURN then go with Guttersnipe and Embermaw Hellion and any spell like Magma Jet , if you want small burn then go with Shock . for faster plays Bloodlust Inciter . Collateral Damage or Artillerize or Thud just Heat Shimmer . ( Mass Mutiny for fun.) good spells such as Reckless Abandon and Reversal of Fortune are just fun to play.
