I'd suggest Pyrohemia and Pestilence, especially when Stuffy Doll is on the field. Also, though, Goblin Sharpshooter. He's his own boardwipe, if utilized properly. Especially against token decks.

Goblin Sharpshooter is always a fun card to give deathtouch.

stiefanu on Kynaios Blue Pod

Hi aeraso, thanks for your comment! When I built the deck I didn't want to use the duo Thrasios, Triton Hero/Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, so I opted for Kynaios. But I then found that the card draw given by Kynaois was not enough to compete with other strong commanders.

So I think I am going to replace Kynaois with that duo, and adapt the deck a bit. If you want to try Kynaois, I suggest you to include more card advantage engines, you will see that they are needed.

Anyway, my version of the deck is like a Blue Pod, i.e. you use hatebears and other stax effects to slow down the game and preventing opponents from winning. Then you (eventually) win from consecutive activations of Birthing Pod or Prime Speaker Vannifar to search for a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combo.

As regards your question, this deck is meant for a nearly-cEDH environment, although it needs a complete rework (as I said before). Goblin Sharpshooter here is useful for two reasons: it kills opponents' mana dorks, and it can combo with Splinter Twin. In my main deck, Cascading Food Chain, you can find the combo explained in Win Conditions tab.

Finally, you pointed out to me that Temur Sabertooth is useless, because I don't have a mana outlet to win with. I will consider removing it when I have time to rework the deck. For this reason, and for the fact that it's not so impactful in a nearly-cEDH meta, Purphoros, God of the Forge will not be included in this deck.

But maybe I would include it in a more relaxed meta ;)

Thank you 12_dwarfs! This deck will be getting more optimized when I add creatures that can "ping". Example is Goblin Sharpshooter. Also want to optimize the mana base a bit more. I actually am using a proxy Badlands right now, but adding shocks to the mix and the horizon lands will be even better.

Basilisk Collar and Goblin Sharpshooter always make a great pair. Plays into your artifact synergy and Hellkite Tyrant win con as well.

SaberTech on Torbran and his Fiendish Plan

I like the poke idea that this deck is going for, but I think that there are some parts of the deck that are a bit counter productive. I think that a number of the low-damage wrath effects will lose a lot of their impact as you move into the mid and late game, even with Torbran's boost, and even though cards like Pyroclasm will deal more damage to your opponents' creatures they are still dealing enough damage to kill a good number of your own utility creatures anyway. I think that there are other options to consider that would give you more choice and control over where damage is going.

Rolling Thunder and Violent Eruption give you a good amount of control and scale really well with Torbran out. Inferno Titan and Drakuseth, Maw of Flames can spread their damage around and are also large bodies that can help finish a game. Goblin Sharpshooter is another creature that can get pretty ridiculous with Torbran out, and Flameblade Angel might also be worth consideration as a deterrent.

There are some other options worth looking at to increase the "punisher" aspect of the deck. Circle of Flame, Harsh Mentor, Immolation Shaman, Rampaging Ferocidon and Hissing Iguanar are all possible ways of getting some extra damage in. If you end up running more creatures, Hellrider is a possible inclusion. And will all the damage flying around you might find that Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion might make a good addition, although Neheb is better with more X cost spells.

Anyway, just some ideas to think about. I'd like to see your opponents' faces when you drop both Mana Barbs and Torbran onto the board. That's not something most people would want to deal with.

Really like the idea behind the deck! As far as theme goes, I think Goblin Sharpshooter (Onslaught for the art), Mine Layer, Alaborn Musketeer, and Goblin Trenches would be cool.

As far as functionality goes, I'd think you could use a little more ramp. Wayfarer's Bauble is amazing for non-green decks, along with Mind Stone, Marble Diamond, and Fire Diamond.

+1 from me, I like themed decks.
