Fling

Instant

As an additional cost to play Fling, sacrifice a creature.

Fling deals damage equal to the sacrificed creature's power to target creature or player.

Fling Discussion

While Fling and Thud may sometimes deal more damage than Collateral Damage , however, due to the restriction on power by Yasova Dragonclaw , Collateral will usually deal more. Also, the stealing and sacrificing deal is only a small feature of the deck, not the focus of the deck. I'd prefer to only have one threaten effect in the deck, as adding more than just Yasova would make the deck too dependent on my opponent for powerful creatures. Thanks for the suggestions, though.

I would Sideboard a couple of Fling or Thud if you are going to be doing Threaten effects with Yasova Dragonclaw There are plenty of good options like to steal stuff with like Conquering Manticore and the classic Act of Treason those are just some good SB options

I see someone else already suggested Thud as a good add in, but I don't know if you need it. At most you should keep 4x Fling and only add Thud s as Fling copies 5-8. You have other (arguably, better) ways to win besides Fling , and while you'll usually go the Fling route during your mainstep, having the possibility to instant-speed sac as a combat trick or at the end of someone's turn is very powerful.

TLDR; Only add Thud if you really like Fling and want a few extra copies around.

Joe_Ken_ on Zndrsplt and Okaun Colin flip ...

WitherLordPlayz Well the plan probably won’t be to win with Chance Encounter but having it in as a win con sounds really good. I think my main plan will be to win flips to get Okaun, Eye of Chaos to a high enough power to knock people down with a trample equipment or just play Chandra's Ignition or some Fling effects to just kill people.

NKlim on Sarkhan’s Unsealing

2 weeks ago

I see a lot of fun potential in this deck. I think you should definitely run Simian Spirit Guide as the additional mana means you may be able to drop Sarkhan's Unsealing early. This is important as the mana cost f your other creatures means that by turn 4-5 with Simians you may be able to drop 2 creatures and hit the opponent for 8+ damage. I would also put Bloodthorn Taunter in the deck, as having haste on Inferno Hellion and Cosmic Larva has the potential to do a lot of damage in one turn. I may include Leyline of Punishment and possibly Insult / Injury instead of Crater's Claws in the sideboard Is there a specific reason you use Fling over Thud ? Thud is at sorcery speed but very few of your creatures live to your next turn so you may as well drop them and attack then thud for double damage.

I hope I didn't rip your deck to shred... btw I love the idea of the deck

I know more people utilize the Fling type cards for most Kresh decks, but I wanted to do something different for the most part. You can definitely post your deck on here! I am always interested in seeing it.

Thanks for the comment!

I saw Fling in your maybeboard-try running Thud in the main.

PlatinumOne on master of cruelties deck

this would be too slow and uninteractive for modern. Fling would be strictly better here than Chandra's Ignition .
