nero92 on Budget: Unblockable Fiend - Turn 3/4 win

2 days ago

@br_dude: Thank you, I'm glad you like it.I set my deck budget for ultra budget decks according to other ultra budget decks on this site to below 50$. Unfortunately one or two updates pushed the deck price a little over that.The main cost factor here is Manamorphose I guess, but it's too valuable to reduce them. I'm thinking about exchanging Thing in the Ice  Flip with cards from the maybe board, but I'm not sure yet. Nova Chaser works too well with the Flamekin Harbinger to ditch it, I think.

No problem! Some other cards i'd consider putting in are Hell's Thunder as a another type of Ball Lightning, Titan's Strength to pump your guys and filter your draws, and seeing as most of your creatures are elementals, both Flamekin Harbinger and Nova Chaser could be interesting!

SirSh4ggy i do intend on running the elemental theme still, and so far i have been able to consistently play a Flamekin Harbinger turn one, which lets me fetch a Nova Chaser, then turn two i play a Brighthearth Banneret, allowing for a turn 3 Nova Chaser. and when it gets wither it becomes a notable threat, especially if i have Nest of Scarabs out, which makes him far more dangerous to block. i may try adding Ashling, the Extinguisher back into the deck, but it still seems solid as is.

Oloro_Magic thanks for the tips on the elementals, Flamekin Harbinger and Nova Chaser look like good additions to the deck. im not sure how the Brighthearth Banneret would fare, but ill do some testing with it and see how it does. also the Nest of Scarabs seems like a good addition to the deck, and ill look into other cards with similar advantages.

Flamekin Harbinger seems like a natural fit in elemental decks, as does Nova Chaser, the former letting you tutor for wither elemental and the latter being a big threat. Brighthearth Banneret could also be interesting in the deck.

Additionally, maybe add some pay offs to -1/-1 counters like Nest of Scarabs.

The reason I use Serum Powder over Oath of Nissa is that it can also ramp in a tight spot. My turn 1 is almost always Flamekin Harbinger followed by turn 2 dork, which makes oath take all the way until turn 3 before I can cast it. Although it doesn't look it, Flickerwisp is too much strain on the mana due to the double off color cost.

I have tried tyrant. It didn't work.

Shriekmaw misses on too many creatures right now to run 4 of. In a matchup where I need it, I effectively already have 5 copies due to harbinger. Hound of Griselbrand however has been an all star in this deck if the combo does not happen, creating value or being a 2 mana or being a 4/4 double striker almost every time.

Ingot Chewer is mainboard rather than sideboard, because, in the matches I need it, I need it in all 3 games to stand a chance. In addition, so many decks run targets for it that, while confusing at times, it is rarely a completely dead draw.

As for Nova Chaser, it's complicated, mainly because it has so many uses. I am in the process of writing a primer for the deck which will go into it in full detail.The main uses are

-Surprise! 11 damage

-reuse of etbs/trigger ltbs

-flash it in to protect something

-instantly turn on bridge, sometimes to give itself champion fodder

-evoke shenanigans

-championing warden so that it comes back ready for battle every time it dies.

The reason I do not run exemplar is mainly the cost. If I do not have soulstoke out it will be at least turn 5 before I can realistically cast it, whereas chaser is still a strong turn 3 play.

Avulth on Jhoira of the Ghitu commander

Is Flamekin Harbinger just for Guile? If so, have you found that to be worth doing most of the time? I play Jhoira a lot and one thing that I have found is that it's tough to be as efficient as your opponents. Expensive rocks will achieve this, as well as more extra turn spells. Another route is to go for more deck manipulation. You have Serum Visions and Preordain, but could also go for Brainstorm, Preordain, Fact or Fiction, Impulse, or even Telling Time if you're digging really deep. You can also embrace the long-game and go for tempo effects. My favorites there are Kederekt Leviathan, Wash Out, and Whelming Wave.

I have been looking at harbinger cards particularly with treefolk and elemental which has you put the selected on top of library after reveal. So I would continue along those lines but with Illusions.
