You can run multiplayer burn decks with 4 of those and it gets very bad very fast. I'm glad I could help, I think red is often underestimated when it can actually do unspeakable things to people. I would also try sleeving up a Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, and some Fork/Increasing Vengeance variants to compete with instant speed control and have a powerful tool in your sideboard. From the Ashes is most likely a one sided ramping Ruination that can hose multicolor EDH metas. Elemental Mastery can be a very cheesy combo with your commander by the way.

Come back over to VexenX's page. I think GeminiSpartanX has a real good take on the card. I was real excited when I hear about it today. My excitement level has dropped as it is only a post Omnath spell in this deck. What would you rather see in your hand, this or From the Ashes? Those are the cards it should be compared to in this deck.

Dastree, I am playing Lightning Greaves, Steely Resolve, Eldrazi Monument and Akroma's Memorial. I would argue that of those four Akroma's Memorial is the least efficient means to protect Omnath. You most likely are going to cast Omnath before Akroma's Memorial. Protection from red and black is good but not optimal. Protection from white over red would be much more valuable. Your meta may be full of spot removal and you could need all four.

The question Kneyo, VexenX and I are debating is whether From the Ashes is a better finisher. I have played the card and it is legitimate. You are going to be putting a lot of Elementals in play and at least having four untapped lands. We are examining these cards within the prism of multiplayer and asking which ends games faster.

Kneyo: Like you said, making changes to this deck is a battle of better or best. I have won games with Akroma's Memorial many time, but something has to come out if I am really going to test From the Ashes. Although Eldrazi Monument cost two less to cast, it also does A LOT let. The haste is big if you plan on flying an army in and the vigilance is extra insurance that you won't get stopped on for attacking.

Frank_Glascock: I think Crop Rotation for Ulvenwald Hydra is a very clean choice. The only real downside for me is that my creature Tutor can't get me a Gaea's Cradle, but I thing that is fine.

I think Phyrexian Altar is a fine card in this deck, but I don't think I need it. The color is not really relevant most of the time, and twice the amount in colorless for Ashnod's Altar is almost always better.

Kneyo: I think it is great that you guys hold my opinion at such a high level. Although I have played the deck A LOT, I have not much recently because of how busy I have been with family, work, and school. However, I will be done with my degree in 8 weeks, and then I will have MUCH more time. I am going to play a few games Friday I hope! I would also say that there are changes that you can make to this list based on your meta. The reason I hesitate with From the Ashes is because my meta is not super keen on land destruction. However, I still want to try it and see how it goes before just ruling it out.

Thank you both again for all of the feedback! Make sure to tell people you know about the deck, we are VERY close to being the #3 deck, but we are getting votes at the same pace as the deck ahead of us, so we keep sitting at round 15 votes behind, lol.

VexenX I think your choices to swap out for From the Ashes are Eldrazi Monument or Akroma's Memorial. Personally I think memorial is the choice because yeah it gives your elementals a lot, but flying is about the only evasion you need...plus it costs 7 mana. You'd be losing haste but that's about all that matters. You'd still get flying and indestructible from monument and with the addition of Steely Resolve you'd be getting shroud too. Or, you may look at it this way. From the Ashes is more aggressive and will win you the game quicker than Akroma's Memorial. It's just my opinion, but I'd trade everything that memorial gives me for +1/+1 flying and indestructible. If you don't like ashes after testing it, it's just a simple sleeve swap to put memorial back in ;)

Kneyo: I think From the Ashes is worth a slot, but not for a ramp spell. I will try it out, but it is going to be difficult to find a place for it full-time unless it just blows my mind...

GeminiSpartanX: I have tried Panharmonicon before, and I found it to be situational, and win-more. I am not saying it is not an option, I am just not a fan.

dcoffin: Sylvan Library and Wheel of Fortune are not going anywhere, I'll tell you that. They are two of the best draw cards in the deck. Every time I have played Cream of the Crop it has been very underwhelming. Sure, it is amazing with Elemental Bond, but I don't know if that is enough for me.

When all is said and done, it is going to be very hard to find cuts for From the Ashes and Steely Resolve. Frank_Glascock, I think Wheel is to good to cut, and has won me games on its own several times. I would likely cut Eldrazi Monument first.

VexenX, what has your experience been with Wheel of Fortune? I understand its great in storm decks where you tend to play a lot of mana rocks and low cost spells. Here it is definitely less vital but my question is how much less. That could definitely be the cut for Cream of the Crop. But, Cream of the Crop has to stand on its own merit. The synergy with Elemental Bond is nice. However, that combo does not win you the game on the spot and this deck plays no means to tutor enchantments.

I added Steely Resolve because I wanted more protection from spot removal. Cutting Lightning Greaves is not an option for me.

Sylvan Library is one of the closest auto includes green has to offer. It appears in four and five color competitive decks. This would be the last draw engine I would cut with the exception of Greater Good.

VexenX, what would you cut for From the Ashes? Kneyo has made me want to find a way to put it back into the deck. Sakura-Tribe Elder is the card on the chopping block unless you can recommend something better.
