Gratuitous Violence


If a creature you control would deal damage to a creature or player, it deals double that damage to that creature or player instead.

Just know that using Dictate of the Twin Gods will allow them to deal double damage to you. Gratuitous Violence is only your creatures.

What if you were to add a card such as Gratuitous Violence . Super OP

ooh i got some suggestions if you want, Embermaw Hellion , Jaya, Venerated Firemage , Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , Fiendish Duo , Angrath's Marauders and Curse of Bloodletting , Gratuitous Violence . Idk if you'd want all of them but it could be fun to see how much kamal can do in one hit.

Okay, I love the flavor of the deck. I think the damage aspect could still be improved, but I also think it's very hard to focus. So, I apologize for throwing all of these options at you: Gratuitous Violence , Fireblast , Curse of Bloodletting , Seething Song , Mordant Dragon (I think this would stack), Claws of Valakut , Jaws of Stone , Breath of Darigaaz , Cosmotronic Wave , Ashling the Pilgrim , Embercleave , Heartless Hidetsugu , Koth of the Hammer .
As for cuts, I (without thinking very much and just reacting to a first read through) am leaning towards: impact tremors, stolen strategy, vicious shadows, war's toll ( I don't think this will stack with mana barbs and burning earth, but I could be totally wrong), red elemental blast, sarkhan the masterless, and ugin the ineffible.

enpc do you have any win con ideas? Aside from the Niv/Draw/Lab Man combo I was thinking Dragonshift could have been one but the longer it has sat there it seems better suited to a go wide strategy or 1v1. I considered infect but seemed cheap. I have thought about Riku, being able to copy pokers and spells could be useful. Regarding Niv would you say run the one or both for redundancy?. Torbran seems like a nice touch, though I feel it'd be another portion to build around with damage doublers like Gratuitous Violence . Choosing one path (deathtouch/stealstuff) is difficult. Death touch focus would mean less dedication to removal spells and cool synergy with Goblin Sharpshooter . Steal stuff route would require alot of spots devoted to it I think, like sac outlets to use the stolen goods.

GhostChieftain while that does sound tempting I think that would further complicate things and increase costs. I had debated dropping green but it's giving me Ramp, haste enablers, untap effects, and a bit of recursion I can't get from just UR.
