Forgeborn Oreads Discussion

Here is my attempt to figure out my "7 by 9" classification of my deck (Referenced article about "7 by 9"). The deck doesn't really fit into the model well since many of the cards overlap by just being enchantments that there's a lot of categories/single cards that only care if other enchantments get played.

The deck itself cost a lot to get rolling and I like where the ramp sits right now even if it's a bit high on cards, but being a 5 color deck has its requriements. I'd like to increase the number of cost reduction cards. And slightly increase the number of draw, and combo cards. If I had to I would probably remove some of the buff/removal/graveyard cards. The issue I have though is that I want to keep the same number of creatures as early agression is this decks downfall. If I could I would also update the mana base and then be able to cut some of the ramp cards.

Number of enchantments: 36 (a * represents that this card cares about enchantments) (15 are auras)

Mana (14)


Mana fixing(2):

Cost reduction(2):

Tutor(9) *

Enchantment tutor(6):

Why are you thinking about removing the Hellkite? Is it the high CMC?

Other lower CMC options that do similar things include the following: Gibbering Fiend, Keldon Marauders, Impact Tremors, Forgeborn Oreads, Keldon Champion, Foundry Champion, Blind Hunter, Bloodhunter Bat, Dakmor Ghoul, Grim Guardian, Pierce Strider, Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Outpost Siege. Personally, I think Gibbering Fiend and Keldon Marauders are the best. They're super low CMC, so you can play them much earlier in the game and start pinging the opponent for more damage sooner.

Invader Parasite is another option, if you don't mind not having any friends. Just make sure you don't accidentally exile all of your own lands, too.

At this Point where the deck is right now, I would cut Thermo-Alchemist, which I like, Nettle Drone Forgeborn Oreads and probably Curse of the Pierced Heart, as well as Basilica Guards ... I see the value in the last both cards in this deck, but I think there are better options to fill there spots.

... here are some creature suggestions:

Vexing Devil

Gibbering Fiend or Grim Lavamancer

Goblin Fireslinger

maybe 1 Scorched Rusalka

Boros Charm !!!!

Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip

Cunning Sparkmage ??!

Hihi: Devil token could be fun as well like Devils' Playground, Dance with Devils, or Make Mischief... But actually all this spells are expensive... But having one or two copies of Devils' Playground in your deck can be mean with all the Impact Tremors and Panharmonicon.

I like the Idea, but in my opinion you should edit the deck, paying attention to the synergys within. For example you run 4x Forgeborn Oreads as a cc4 spell, with just 14 enchantments coming onto the battlefield from time to time, or 3x Nettle Drone with just 6 colorless spells. And you should think about the mana-curve in order to get the job done.

i would actually recommend switching out Sigil of the Empty Throne for Ajani's Chosen, slightly cheaper and has a body already, also i would trade 1Forgeborn Oreads and 1Eidolon of Blossoms for Eidolon of Countless Battles to add pressure

also Greater Auramancy would rock here

You have 28 enchantments in the deck, I suggest Sigil of the Empty Throne as another possible win condition because between Eidolon of Blossoms and Forgeborn Oreads you're either going to draw the entire deck quickly or ping slowly

I laughed when i saw this build, +1

Steam Vents, Volcanic Island for lands obviously.

Taigam's Scheming can go pretty deep on the selective mill.

Forgeborn Oreads can explode when you drop your Oxidda Golem.

Blood Moon is fine for you and can screw your opponents.

Dude, I totally thought of something like this. Add a couple more creatures that abuse enchantment etb effects, like Eidolon of Blossoms , and Forgeborn Oreads, and Stasis Snare from the new set and you will have a ton of tutorable creatures and tutorable removal enchants that act as wincons when you get 3 and pretty much any one creature. Maybe add in something that shuffles your gy into your library if it has problems with not winning after drawing. Needs a way to abuse that.
