Ghitu Chronicler Discussion

Okay, I am back! I have more suggestions for you!

Firstly, I saw that you had Sunforger as a card you would like to get and I can't stress this enough: YOU NEED SUNFORGER. With so much removal at instant speed Sunforger becomes a busted card for your deck!

As far as other suggestions, I recommend the following:

Sins of the Past is basically Yawgmoth's Will or Mizzix's Mastery but a bit more mana required to cast for a huge benefit of free casting from the graveyard.

Shreds of Sanity/Ghitu Chronicler helps get extra uses out of instants and sorceries

Comeuppance is the best rattlesnake card ever

Fire Covenant is a decent board wipe if you have life to spare or really want to shut down specific creatures. It may not work for your deck though as you already have tons of removal

Deadly Tempest Same as above in that it may not be useful to you but could potentially wreck certain opponents

Increasing Vengeance Another fork variant but castable from the bin. I would take out Fork or Reverberate for it

Torment of Hailfire Obviously a good finisher especially with the amount of redundant copy spells you have. Better than Cut//Ribbons

Batwing Brume A nice psuedo fog that potentially stings the offending opponent

Hide / Seek Some things are better tucked into the library or exiled rather than destroyed

Electrostatic Field/Thermo-Alchemist/Guttersnipe Incremental advantage that could mean the difference between a loss or win plus some board advantage

Monastery Mentor/Young Pyromancer More board presence that may or may not be what you want to be doing for your early turns

Imminent Doom/Sphinx-Bone Wand This may not be useful to you but could serve as a secondary/tertiary Sentinel Tower

Lowdown: Removed the "Protection from" combo & Odric, Lunarch Marshal. Added Reito Lantern as a "Super-Recursion" card In here. Removed Ghitu Chronicler as Sunforger puts instants in for free & counts as being cast. Keeping Paradox Engine for versatility, & Geode Golem is removed...

Added Guttersnipe for an Infinite Burn combo w/ Sunforger & Reito Lantern.

Replaced all 5 Artifact Tutors w/ one that can search for anything in the deck: Planar Portal. Unsure about cutting Emrakul's Hatcher as Eldrazi Spawn make for not just Mana Sources, but also Chump Blockers, & it can be flickered... Must keep Radiate for the fact that nonpermanent cards are a big player here. Same for Paradox Engine + Boros Signet + Sunforger combo for endless Sunforging...

Only 7 CMC is the Commander. Impossible to remove.

For the comment in question...

  1. I am, nevertheless, working on several decks that are casual (With an edge that still challenges.): Gorm the Great & Virtus the Veiled, & Kozilek, the Great Distortion (Still WIP...)

  2. I know the 2018 Precons were trash, but just thinking of individual cards would be for the best, as this years' secondary commanders were better anyway for the most part...

Regarding my Comment #11: I am focused on cEDH by this point. Besides, my WIP Kozilek deck is literally worse than 90% CASUAL. Worst case about >4 cards? Both 6 Drops are staples here, Same for Endbringer for . 5 drops aren't any better: has Emrakul's Hatcher, which is a 2-4-1. Radiate Manipulates mu Instants & Sorceries even when casted by Sunforger. Neheb, the Eternal makes Mana, even after the entire Combat Phase, & even after addition Combat Phases & Main Phases. "Stallion." I claim. Dunno about Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker yet... MAYBE I'll remove Apocalypse + Teferi's Protection, if it doesn't mesh so well w/ cEDH... However, I won't remove Paradox Engine; stuff like Isochron Scepter copies of Fork for Nonpermanent copying, & Sunforger Activations. Especially the latter.

I reduced those to just Planar Portal, & I have Counterspells at least: For Artifact Blast for enemy impurities, Molten Influence beats most spot removal (Unless it has Split Second.), Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast beats Blue Permanents & Counterspells, Even Dualcaster Mage can copy an enemy Counterspell if you want, countering the real thing. is a little bit different: Dawn Charm has a mode that stops a spell that targets you, Lapse of Certainty puts target spell on top of the enemy Library, & I plan to find a card that can compliment w/ this. Ideas? Mana Tithe is a Planarshifted Force Spike, which can be decent sometimes... Rebuff the Wicked is the same as Dawn Charm, but at a permanent instead. Is Illumination Good?

I hope this can help w/ the decisions on Monday; I'm thinking of Keeping Razia's Purification, & keep Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith + Sol Ring w/ Reito Lantern in hand. I hope this works as a combo that's good...

I'll be waiting until then, landofMordor. I dunno what high drop cards to cut...

+4 Runaway Steam-Kin this card gets big very quick, expecially in a monored build like this, helps put pressure on the board, and if its gonna be removed, sacrifice it for some more burn spells! Alternitavely you can channel that energy into...

+2 Banefire ! What a great source of burn, and mana sink for the previous card, it will help you close out games after turn 4-5 for you! Expecially with the 'cant be countered' bit. I'd drop... 2 Warlord's Fury. Were you playing it for the draw, if so maybe look into Rile?

-4 Electrostatic Field (put into sideboard for aggressive strategies and where you want to play slow, maybe consider Guttersnipe in side too and transform the deck into a guttersnipe deck.

Have you considered Fight with Fire for burning large creatures or fliers, Tormenting Voice for some deck filter and draw, pitch your jump-start cards to this!, Detection Tower a land that you might find useful since it looks like you want to be burning your opponent directly, or hexproof creatures or things like Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Verix Bladewing to close out a game and having a big ol dragon, and even better later game if you get that far. Finally Ghitu Chronicler for some recursion and is a wizard too!

If you get some time, i'd really really appreciate some feedback on my deck; Song of the Conclave (Tokens)

Did you just used 6 Ghitu Chronicler in the same deck?

Well after my denial w/ Boros, I actually have one other plan in mind...

Should I make a Gate Deck, or what? Just asking to be sure...

Nice deck! As for suggestions, I would do something like this: -4 Evolving Wilds -4 Ghitu Chronicler -1 Dismissive Pyromancer +4 Sunscorched Desert +4 The Flame of Keld +1 Viashino Pyromancer I believe these changes should make the deck more competitive and possibly even good enough to go 3-1 or even 4-0 at your LGS. +1!

Have you tried Protean Raider and Shake the Foundations? Maybe sideboard some graveyard recursion such as Ghitu Chronicler.

elvishimpersonator on Red/Green Kicker

ok i think tbh you dont need either of the planeswalkers, they dont really do anything with the kicker theme. so id say trim 1Chandra, Bold Pyromancer, 1Samut, the Tested, 2Chandra's Outburst, 2Krosan Druid and 2Ghitu Chronicler. then add 2Elfhame Druid. also it might make sense to take a few of the legendary or really big dudes down to 1 copy
