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.

Orange+ on The Act of Treason

Hi SturWulf, thanks for your comment!

The reason I don't use any instance or sorcery spells to sacrifice creatures, is because they are less consistent. Say I have 2 steal abilities (Act of Treason) on my hand but only 1 Fling-like ability; This would make the second steal ability less useful.

Another good point is that comboing with Fling would require me to spend mana for a steal spell (3 or 4) in addition to Fling's 2 mana, which makes the combo slower. The one exception to this is of course Helm of Possession which also costs 2 mana to activate, but in that case the effect lets me handle two creatures at once.

No Fling?

You've asked nothing but good questions aholder7...

I want this to beck a a fast Red/Green aggro deck. I liked the trample/haste mechanics of the elementals and enjoyed beefing them up with things like Primal Forcemage, Giant Growth, Titan's Strength, Fling and Brute Force in the past. Just smashing the damage straight on through. This deck is for kitchen table veterans as well as a competitive meet up group. I'd like to take it to a modern night in the future. At times I feel Incandescent Soulstoke is too slow to pump out Nova Chaser. I also have little defense in this deck. The deathtouch creatures are a deterrent and in dire times I can always beef them up... Budget is open. I appreciate any advice!

The only trouble I see is making sure you get one card out of 99. Worldly Tutor might help in that respect?

Also, I'm kind of confused why Remembrance is in there. What's it going to let you dig for in a singelton deck? I feel like that could be cut for Fling.

In a game of chaos I have Grafted Exoskeleton on my Wall of Blood. I pay eight life to give the Wall a power of 10. I use Fling on one opponent and Reverberate the Fling at the other player. My opponent said I have to sacrifice another creature for the second Fling, is this true?

You should try adding Fling to your deck. I suggest replacing it with Collateral Damage .

It's always fun to Fling your opponent's biggest guy at them after you steal it. Traitorous Blood might also be something to consider if stolen creatures are getting chump blocked.

Other suggestions: Flesh / Blood is a great Fling sidegrade.

Dictate of Erebos is a second Grave Pact.

Flesh Carver is a third Fleshbag Marauder.

Attrition is a sac outlet and removal engine.

Greater Good is a free sac outlet and draw engine.

Goblin Bombardment is ANOTHER free sac outlet.
