Flesh / Blood Discussion
7 months ago
Just a passing thought, I understand why you like Thrash/Threat for some quick spot removal but Flesh / Blood seems much better because it can also just kill someone by dealing damage to the player. This alone might give you an edge. Not sure if it's worth a tiny splash of red though. 4X Burning-Tree Emissary would get you there without needing to fix your mana base while also being an insanely good card without Flesh/Blood. Just an idea.

Well, if you never had any problems with Kiln Fiend then keep it. There's no reason to change what has been working out fine. Just as a thought provoker, you can have Monastery Swiftspear to think about.
Maybe just bad wasn't the best thing to say about Rakdos Shred-Freak . It's just that it offers basically nothing more than haste. You have cards like Hellspark Elemental , as you mentioned, but also:
Earthshaker Khenra - Makes it easier to get to your opponent while also being reusable from the grave in the late game, and even bigger than before.
Ash Zealot - More of a Siboard card, but still, 2 mana for first strike, haste and punishes your opponent for playing cards from your graveyard.
Vexing Devil - Dont't know if you could fit this guy in your budget, but it's amazing. It's either a one mana 4/3 that your opponent will have to waste a removal spell or a one mana 4 damage spell.
However, the real reason I said Rakdos Shred-Freak is bad is because of...
Thunderkin Awakener - It can reanimate all of your (elemental) suicide bombers while attacking. So for only two mana, you can from 4 damage on board, with Thunderkin Awakener and Spark Elemental , to up to 8 damage with the Firecat. You could also put other cards in for him, like Lightning Skelemental and Spark Trooper , but those would require you to adjust the manabase.
Also, since you're playing these cheap suicide bombers you could use Unearth to reanimate them again and hit for a bunch. However, I'm not sure that splashing to black would appeal to you.
Another suicide bomber could be Impetuous Devils , though I don't have much to say about it. You can basically take out one of your opponent's creature by forcing them to block. Just here as an option for you.
Cards like Thud , Fling and Flesh / Blood (the blood half only) should prove themselves more useful than Soul's Fire . Since most of your creatures are dying anyway, there should be no problem in sacrificing them.
Manabasewise, if really want to keep Reality Smasher you can add lands that have a better utility than Rogue's Passage as most of your creatures have trample anyway, so your opponent will regardless always have trouble preventing damage.
I've been writing a lot today, so right now I won't go on too much detail about these "utility" lands. I'll just list some here and you can say if you liked any or none and I'll glady discuss about it.
- Looming Spires
- Kessig Wolf Run
- Skarrg, the Rage Pits
- Teetering Peaks
- Turntimber Grove
- Barbarian Ring
- Smoldering Spires
- Blighted Gorge
- Keldon Megaliths
- Memorial to War
- Sunscorched Desert
Just as a curiosty, I've written so many cards in this comment that TappedOut won't let me mark more suggestions, while most not even appearing for me to suggest.

I've found that in a deck of big creatures, cards like Thrash / Threat , Domri's Ambush , or the "Blood" half of Flesh / Blood can be very efficient control for creatures/Planeswalkers with "Blood" being able to hit players to potentially end the game.

BUMP SO MUCH BLOOD, I REPLACE ITS IRON & SALT WITH SUGAR!
Since I'm the only one who even gives a care here anymore, I guess I could sum up the 4 Color Guild Alliances.
First: Azorius Senate : They have an Alliance with the Orzhov Syndicate via Bond of Discipline , and are somewhat like allies with the Simic Combine via Beck / Call . In these terms, they would be like The Witch-Maw, Atraxa, & the identities' 4 Color Personality Traits.
Second: Orzhov Syndicate : They have an Alliance w/ the Azorius Senate via Bond of Discipline , and are somewhat like allies with the Selesnya Conclave via Ready / Willing . In these terms, they would be like The Witch-Maw, Atraxa, & the identities' 4 Color Personality Traits.
Third: House of Dimir : They have an Alliance w/ the Izzet League via Bond of Insight , and are somewhat like allies with the Cult of Rakdos via Breaking / Entering . In these terms, they would be like The Yore-Tiller, Breya, & the identities' 4 Color Personality Traits.
Fourth: Izzet League : They have an Alliance w/ the House of Dimir via Bond of Insight , and are somewhat like allies with the Boros League via Catch / Release . In these Terms, they would be like The Yore-Tiller, Breya, & the identities' 4 Color Personality Traits.
Fifth: Cult of Rakdos : They have an Alliance w/ the Golgari Swarm via Bond of Revival , and are somewhat like allies with the House of Dimir via Breaking / Entering . In these terms, they would be like The Glint-Eye, Yidris, & the identities' 4 Color Personality Traits.
Sixth: Golgari Swarm : They have an Alliance with the Cult of Rakdos via Bond of Revival , and are somewhat like allies with the Gruul Clans via Flesh / Blood . In these terms, they would be like The Glint-Eye, Yidris, & the identities' 4 Color Personality Traits.
Seventh: Gruul Clans : They have a Alliance with the Boros League via Bond of Passion , & are kind of like and are somewhat like allies with the Golgari Swarm via Flesh / Blood . In these terms, they would be like the Dune-Brood, Saksia, & the identities' 4 Color Personality Traits.
Eighth: Boros Legion : They have a Alliance with the Gruul Clans via Bond of Passion , & are kind of like and are somewhat like allies with the Izzet League via Catch / Release . In these terms, they would be like the Ink-Treader, Kynaios and Tiro, & the identities' 4 Color Personality Traits.
Ninth: Selesnya Conclave : They have a Alliance with the Simic Combine via Bond of Flourishing , & are kind of like and are somewhat like allies with the Orzhov Syndicate via Ready / Willing . In these terms, they would be like The Witch-Maw, Atraxa, & the identities' 4 Color Personality Traits.
Tenth (Final): Simic Combine : They have a Alliance with the Selesnya Conclave via Bond of Flourishing , & are kind of like and are somewhat like allies with the Azorius Senate via Beck / Call . In these terms, they would be like The Witch-Maw, Atraxa, & the identities' 4 Color Personality Traits.
OVERALL BATTLE REPORT:
Dune Brood: 1
I'll decide the identities later, But I'll say this:
All Witch-Maw Results ended w/ the same result: Bond of Discipline & Bond of Flourishing every time. The only Ink-Treader result had Bond of Passion , & Izzet League . & the only Dune-Brood result had Bond of Passion also, but also had Golgari Swarm .
I'll decide this later. I just wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions for terms for 2 Color Identity Personality Traits of One Word each, but 5 of them. At this point, I'm only doing personality traits for Non Artifact-Related anything & even won't count Planeswalkers. Just Eldrazi & Colored Eldrazi w/ Devoid (I'm trying to find a term for "Not having Compatibility with Reality", as well as "Existing outside our understanding of our World."). Based on what legendofa said for the Four-Colors, can you think of 5 terms for this? Any 3 Colors? The Dual Colors are a mess. & is there such a thing as 5 Personality Traits? I'd really like to see 5 for all of them; Mono Color did that in spades; so since such a person might have been asked too much, Why not you, Boza? Haven't heard from you in awhile, any opinions on this? Oh, & one last thing; All qualities need to be different for each of the 5 Traits. I hope this isn't too much, guys. I'm believing I pushed one of us too far. My bad. X/

I'm playing around with a Gruul Infect deck that has a legitimate opportunity for a turn-two win with Assault Strobe and gives you flexibility when it comes to finishing the game out on the back end with Flesh / Blood . Any input before I take it live would be much appreciated.

Hey was just looking this up to test something out and noticed you just put this up. Not sure if you're looking for suggestions and although I don't play this deck my buddy does and we playtest exclusively so I'm pretty sure how it runs. It seems this list very much resembles that guy on the pro tours' deck as I can see the sideboard tech he included and the nagging thoughts. I assume you know what each piece does in the deck after looking it up so i'll just address the changes my buddy and I made.
Not in any order: So the deck dies to any hand disruption because you need to keep a decent hand but once they know what you are playing they know which pieces to take out. 4X Leyline of Sanctity are very important in the sideboard for this reason and helps against burn decks that beat you before you can combo off.
The manabase only needs a few shocks. All green to play manadorks and red, white, and blue for ascendancy. So Hallowed Fountain and Steam Vents are not really needed and you would want more fetches. All the shock lands include green so my buddy uses the red green fetch. Sorry the name eludes me at this moment.
Now for the instants. My buddy plays 1 more Cerulean Wisps because he really likes that card, all the Manamorphose helps out against blood moon because you can play right through it but otherwise the card is subpar compared to other cantrips so I suggested playing 1 Manamorphose in side and 3 main in case game one you need to fetch it from the sideboard you still can. Noxious Revival has proven to be a powerhouse and is the only way to get a combo off on turn 2 because it costs 0 mana. He plays 4 just because other than getting the turn 2 combo it's just an ok card for 0 (it doesn't draw by itself). Silence is Time Walk. But the thing about this is you'll need to save a mana to be able to play it on their turn. Typically you'll want to try to find the combo pieces instead of stalling the opponent (they can still attack). it's really 12 for one and a dozen for another pick and choose with this card.
Although he doesn't run it I can see where Nagging Thoughts is good. You'll need 2 mana dorks (or a Fatestitcher to pull it off typically) but which resolving a card and drawing and discarding your creatures untap and you play another card, could be solid. Not sure but he doesn't run it.
He runs Dryad Arbor at the moment with Expedite along with View from Above just to make things go quicker. Because of this he runs more Abundant Growth to enchant his man land. As for other creatures he dropped a Fatestitcher because you don't need many, you can get him to the grave easy and bring him back fairly easy as well. He also runs a Noble Hierarch. Another 1 drop dork, 12 one a dozen another.
Rest of sideboard: I can see where Grapeshot is used but just use this card instead: Flesh / Blood. Mid combo you search for it, with a Fatestitcher you tap him and whatever other creature you have and whatever creature does 20+ damage to face. You win. Doing it this way frees up a sideboard slot. My buddy runs Meddling Mage. Just 1. It seems fun to search for and play it. There is also Fiery Justice in side. Seems good for little goblin decks or whatever. As for the rest of the sideboard we are still playing around. 1 Wear is good. It seems subpar to just kill one after searching but it still seems alright for Blood Moon or whatever else. The rest of his sideboard is being looked at so nothing else is really in there at the moment.
I think I hit on everything I can think of, hope it helped.

Flesh / Blood is a dumb finisher. Eat a creature from a graveyard, buffing one of your infect creatures. Then deal direct damage with the creature. Because Blood specifies that the damage source is the the creature, not the spell, the infect carries through. Soul's Fire is the same thign at instant speed.
