Fling Discussion

fair enough, but btw why not use Fling for Thunder-Thrash Elder

Triton on Fatty Face-Smashing

Fling actually looks like a viable card to consider, would been better if I had more of the mana symbol x-costing hydras, since I've always enjoyed casting 20/20s

Eternal Witness is amazing, my budget is tight rn, so I'll add it in once I can afford the rest of the deck

Eldritch Evolution is for sure an interesting card, might have to build around it more, but it sure seems like a viable option. Especially turning any 2-drop into an Oracle of Mul Daya, or an Eternal Witness into a 5-drop fatty

Well, second suggestion for more mana dorks, so might as well add in some more. :) Decks usually tend to use more creature hate imo, but more mana dorks doesn't hurt. So far, I have Quirion Elves as a color fixing 2-drop. Any I might've missed?

Feel free to stop by for suggestions, I do enjoy discussion on EDH decks. :)

Hey man any time!

I'll be sure to come back if I ever have more cards.

One more weird card:

Fling? Swing with a 40/40 and kill one player, fling it at the next? I don't know how much you want to be killing your own stuff though.

Also I see Greenwarden of Murasa, would you consider Eternal Witness? I run Greenwarden in my Omnath deck and haven't been able to find room for Eternal yet. But it's just such a good green staple.

Instead of rocks, would you consider more mana dorks? Playing green and rocks always seems odd to me. Creatures are the fastest form of ramp (if they survive). But that is a total you call. Either work.

One last card, Eldritch Evolution. What are your thoughts about that in your deck? I feel it really depends on the curve of a deck, but it's a cool card regardless.

Colossus of Akros is incredible. A 20/20 indestructible trampler can't be ignored. I run them in a home-brewed kitchen table casual Urzatron deck, Urzatron 2.3, that includes Fling and Soul's Fire to get the damage through even if they have a way to stop combat damage. Works beautifully.

JibJig on Alesha who smiles at death

1 week ago

Few problems I see.

CREATURES

First off you have two Archetype of Courages.Secondly Bloodghast isn't necessary in this deck. His landfall ability is pretty much wasted when Alesha, Who Smiles at Death is on the field. Also don't run Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker without Zealous Conscripts, as it's an easy infinite combo.

Worth noting is that I don't like Pia and Kiran Nalaar. They always come out too late, and when they do come out they're inefficient. I'd rather run Goblin Bombardment for the Fling effect. Thief of Blood is weak if not played against the right deck. I'd rather run ther Snap for a bigger effect.

LANDS

Pretty good. Buy dual lands if you want to live in poverty.

INSTANTS AND SORCERIES

You don't need Enlightened Tutor as you only have three equipment cards, unless you plan on grabbing your Dictate of Erebos or Mardu Ascendancy with every cast of it.

PLANESWALKERS

I don't like Nahiri, the Lithomancer. I just don't. She's so niche even in an equipment deck. I find she rarely pulls weight, even in my Kemba deck. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is neat. I'd rather just do a Mob Rule to replace her -3 ability, which also can end a game easy.

Harashiohorn on UR Budget Affinity

So Myr Enforcer is a hard card to run without the artifact lands because you are going to have to pay at least part of that mana cost, and it doesn't really have any attractive abilities on it. If you really want to go affinity in modern on such a low budget consider going an old-school Sac-Heavy route either using cards like Atog and Fling, or cards like Disciple of the Vault and Salvage Titan. There is also the Tempered Steel route, its more reliable but far far less explosive. Cards to consider that are within your current colors are Shrapnel Blast and Ensoul Artifact, both of those have seen play in affinity before and are decent, Welding Jar is another 0-mana artifact with a relevant ability. If you want to focus more on the cranial plating win-con route you can use Steelshaper's Gift or Open the Armory to ensure you get a copy every game.

wow...first i thought "why the hell is he playing all that...is there some combo i missed in there [frantically searching the deck list all over again]" and then i saw the all two-drops-theme...nicely done!

I do have some suggestions that could potentially upgrade the deck...

since your commander can already produce mana: Myr Superion

your hand will be emtpy pretty fast: Lupine Prototype

you can refill by saccing either of those for Life's Legacy (also goes great with Hydras

Elvish Vanguard could be of use as well as Dwynen's Elite, Haze of Rage, Bloodmark Mentor, Moldgraf Scavenger, Bramblewood Paragon, Firefist Striker, Nest Invader, Obsessive Skinner, Bramblesnap, Goblin Wardriver, Mogg War Marshal, Brindle Shoat, Cryptolith Rite, Lightning Mauler, Thrive, Deadly Recluse, Gruul Signet, Hooded Hydra, Gyre Sage, Goblin Tunneler, Strangleroot Geist, Break Through the Line, Beastcaller Savant, Beastbreaker of Bala Ged, Dryad Sophisticate, Dual Casting and last but not least Burning-Tree Emissary...there are so many good choices for 2-drops...

If you opt to include Myr Superion you might also think about adding the mana myr for red and green: Copper Myr + Iron Myr as well as Life's Legacy + Myr Retriever and/or Carapace Forger

If you want to play Lupine Prototype you really want to play Life's Legacy and/or Myr Retriever, Fling

Since most of the cards also fit a tribe you already have in the deck, your Tribal Forcemage should become better as well

I hope this deck will be loads of fun for you.

Love these decks! +1. I have one of my own, come have a see, steal my ideas with pride and leave a comment Big Bob, the True Hero of Fight Club

I recommend that if you focus on damage-dealing, go all the way and cut the cards that give trample or otherwise promote battle. Finishers like Overwhelming Stampede aside ofcourse.

Get ready, there is work to be done! :)

And to sacrifice, you need tokens. Try these:- Avenger of Zendikar - expensive, but tradable for the Pod- Prossh, Skyraider of Kher as mentioned- Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder- Fresh Meat - Hello again!- Fungal Sprouting- Mitotic Slime- Necrogenesis- Ophiomancer- Rakka Mar- Skirsdag High Priest

And when budget allows:

To cut:
