Flame Slash Discussion

EpicFreddi on Amonkhet Spoilers and Speculation.

2 mana for a Flame Slash doesn't really get me excited, but i guess for standard it's good (?). I doesnt kill a Rhino so it cant be THAT good.

I love the idea, so I started browsing all red one-cost cards in Modern using Gatherer... I should be sleeping instead... oh well.

Since you're going entirely for one drops, you may want to condense your plans into two colors - when I playtested your deck with the playtest feature, I had a hard time getting a good start because the manabase is too diverse for getting things out quickly.

You might consider sticking with just two colors - red and white. The reason for that choice is because those are more likely to have "prowess" creatures (I think), and spells that boost all your dudes, rather than just one at a time (like green usually gets for low cost). Giant Growth might be replaced with Built to Smash, Taste for Mayhem Titan's Strength or Furious Resistance

Since you're trying to get lots of dudes into play, spells that boost all your creatures, rather than just one, might be best. In keeping with my red/white suggestion, have you considered Banners Raised, Weapon Surge or Coordinated Assault?

Also, here's a few one-drops that caught my eye.

A Crack the Earth on turn two after playing a little guy, forcing a slower opponent to sacrifice a land or mana dork, could be devasating. Also, replace Swords to Plowshares (Not modern legal) with something modern legal like Path to Exile or, in a pinch, Fiery Impulse or Flame Slash.

You might also try a crazy little Kuldotha Rebirth-BoNeSaW-Goblin Grenade if you want people to hate you...

I'd suggest cutting a Flame Slash with a Harvest Pyre. Helps kill Goyfs. Also, I find Faerie Conclave to be a sweet budget option for manlands.

Worn Powerstone and Shifting Wall are not modern-legal.

The first 2 Galvanic Bombardment in a game are inferior or equal to Lightning Bolt, making lightning bolt the preferred card (since it's overly optimistic to believe that a game will go long enough for the third copy to come up). Harnessed Lightning is also questionable... it takes a lot before it's better than Flame Slash.

Pentavus is funny, but playing something with cmc 7 requires ramping of tron-like levels, or ways to cheat it into play. As far as I can tell, you have neither.

Ion Storm is going to be impressively disappointing. It requires 2 mana for every activation, after you've spent 3 mana to just put it on the table. And THEN it needs a creature with a +1/+1 counter, or an artifact with a charge counter... that adds up to a card, your opponents are going to love.

You play quite a few 4-cmc cards. At that cost, cards should have immediate impact in modern - like Cryptic Command or Supreme Verdict. Removal is quite good in modern, so if you play a small creature, and the next turn a vehicle, your opponent will gleefully path/bolt/push/snag your creature.

Sorry, this is a bit of a rain on your vehicle-parade.

maybe a few Flame Slash for the budget

Crumbling Necropolis also a good budget land

Sargeras on The Eldritch Truth (Bloodborne Eldrazi Theme Deck)

Interesting deck, so +1, I have a few suggestions,

  1. Make sure that the hubs for this deck state both casual and gimmick, that way you don't have to say that you are playing casual, the hubs say it for you! (Just a little thing though)

  2. I get that this deck is RB which means it wants to be aggressive, but you have some shifting themes here, on one hand, you have aggressive beaters that can swing for a ton of damage, and then there Ulamog and Bane of Bala Ged which you will likely never cast in a single game (Good luck casting 7 & 10 drops with 22 lands) My first suggestion would be to cut Ulamog and Bane (I know they are fun but you likely won't cast them) and replace them with 2 more Dust Stalker and 1 more Endless One.

  3. Replace Processor Assault with Flame Slash, slash came from rise of the Eldrazi and does basically the same thing with way less cost.

  4. Behind the Scenes: Skulk would allow creatures like Sludge Crawler to get in for damage and allow you to Ingest cards without having to worry about blockers (they slither around). This would probably come in over Forerunner of Slaughter since the card just doesn't do too much imo.

  5. I'm not a particular fan of tap-lands, Sulfurous Springs would be ideal since you can play cards and effects for both anyway.

Cheers!

Flame Slash could help take some bigger creatures, if you wanted it in the sideboard. Pyretic Ritual or Desperate Ritual could make your Seething Song ridiculous on turn 2, so those are ideas. Hope that helps.
