rothgar13 Spoils of the Vault naming Fling or Messenger's Speed when you have Angel's Grace or Phyrexian Unlife available to stop your death can be an extremely consistent turn 3 win now let's say they're on the draw... a few lists run a fun of Gemstone Caverns which in turn means they can do the exact same line of play on turn 2... now let's do the math.. average life after searching for one of these 2 cards is -20 Death's Shadow gets -x/-x where x is your life total so subtracting negative 20 from negative 20 makes +20, your Death's Shadow is a 33/33 creature..... turn 3 or 4 if this isn't lethal REGARDLESS of if they took damage then that's very very strange as the burn player is definitely not soul sisters with an explosive Martyr of Sands opening hand

@kyuuri117: Everything's dropping. We had a buylist frenzy when MM2 was announced (basically, anything that wasn't officially on it went up in price) which was sustained with Jund returning to prominence, but now things are normalizing a bit (and while Jund is most definitely Tier 1, it's not #1 overall), so prices will deflate a bit. Plus we had a bunch of major tourneys in a row, and that won't be the case again for at least a few months.

@tyforthevenom: Death's Shadow + Fling hurts, sure, but it doesn't end you as Burn. They're going to have to wait till about T3-4 to get the 10+ damage they'd need to actually drop you (and even that assumes the Burn player took a bit of damage from a combination of previous swings, fetches/shocks, and Eidolon of the Great Revel), and that gives you the clock you need to bury them. Phyrexian Unlife or lose, basically, which is the same as the normal Ad Nauseam matchup, just a bit faster.

@APPLE01DOJ: Sweet!

@Scorprix: I'm with bijschjdbcd on this one - Lightning Helix just covers more ground in terms of matchups than Deflecting Palm does. The clearest example of that it can clear blockers for your creatures if you'd get 3+ damage out of them, and if you run Wild Nacatl and/or Atarka's Command, it's not difficult to imagine a scenario where that is the case. The only time I'd consider Deflecting Palm is when the 4 total copies of Lightning Helix are already in the 75 and I have a bit of room left over.

Fulminator Mage is nasty sick with Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, play lili with the mage out, you get an insta flip. also Thoughtseize instead of Duress. Both of these cards are kinda pricey though, so it's up to you.

I'm not really sure if Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a good option here. while you do have good devotion off of the Demigod of Revenge I don't see what you need the copious mana for. (and the colorless manta it makes normally will only hurt your fixing.)

Running Fling in this deck might be interesting. Good interaction with a lot of cards in the dec: Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Athreos, God of Passage, Kolaghan's Command, Whip of Erebos, and Demigod of Revenge. You might consider replacing the main board Bile Blight with it (unless your friends often play token decks).

Erebos, God of the Dead is interesting in the deck. I'm wondering if you have any problems with card draw? it seems like you could take him out for something more useful to you? He does have good flavor in the deck though.

Another interesting addition you might consider would be Temur Battle Rage. Very good interaction with Master of Cruelties if you have someone out to trigger the secondary effect. but also good with any of your big flying demons.

Bovine073 Thanx for you comment! Ive debated for some time between Fling and Rite of Consumption, but Fling has one major advantage in that it's instant speed which makes all the difference. It's what made me splash red in the first place.

Apart for the obvious reasons that make an instant-speed sacrifice-powered spell better than a sorcery speed one, the main reason of choosing Fling over Rite of Consumption is actually Sheltering Ancient. If you play it on your turn, and your opponent ends his turn without a creature on the board, you fail to pay the upkeep cost and lose Sheltering ancient. If you see that happening you can instead Fling Sheltering ancient at the end of the opponents turn.

However, being that it's a splash color, i might wanna go down to 3 fling and add 1-2 Rite of Consumption. Knowing i have a little lifegain would make it easier to decide wether or not to use Hall of the Bandit Lord once it's out.

Im actually having the same problem choosing between Altar's Reap or Life's Legacy. Is it better to sacrifice something that would anyways die and Draw two cards for two mana or is it better to draw 5-6 cards for two mana at sorcery speed, filling the graveyard at the endstep and finding Varolz, the Scar-Striped?

I see no reason to choose Messenger's Speed over Crimson Wisps since all my creatures already have either flying or trample.

I would recommend Nova Chaser and Incandescent Soulstoke for your elementals deck. Some guy played the deck tonight at my local FNM, and did really well with Smokebraider, Incandescent Soulstoke, Nova Chaser, and Fling.

If you're going to go all-in with the hydra stuff, then Kalonian Hydra, Managorger Hydra and Hooded Hydra are all solid. Things that might help hydras stay alive/be beefy are Plaxcaster Frogling, Sporeback Troll, Thrummingbird, Doubling Season, Primal Vigor, Gyre Sage, Vorel of the Hull Clade, Hardened Scales. Cards like Fling might be ok in here, too.
