BullettTime on Neheb Didn't Start the Fire

Thanks for the +1! It's rad that Neheb has so many die-hards (myself included) despite not being that popular on EDHREC.

I've seen your deck before and it looks great! Mine sacrifices the resiliency your's has for the chance to go off early. I wanna make sure the game doesn't go on long enough for card-draw or creatures to be relevant. It's the "drive the bus off a cliff and hopefully jump off last" kinda strategy.

Throne of the High City is a great suggestion and it should replace Shivan Gorge. The Gorge has been in the deck from the beginning and has never been relevant in a game. (There's definitely a way to slot in Arch of Orazca too. Ten permanents is a stretch for this deck. It probably means the game has gone on too long for me to win but this could pull me back from the brink.)

Chandra, Flamecaller and Grenzo, Havoc Raiser were in the first iteration of the deck. Flamecaller got replaced by Pyromaster in an effort to drive down the mana curve. And yeah, poor Grenzo, despite being awesome, just wasn't synergistic enough.

As far as pet cards go, Illicit Auction will unfortunately be cut pretty soon. It's getting pitched to Chrome Mox more than it's getting cast these days. Maybe I'll just replace it with Arch of Orazca go up to 35 lands.

But Cave-In isn't just a pet card! I swear! Lol. It's the best.

Hello! been going around looking at Neheb decks and giving suggestion because that's how much I love him! Love your deck name so immediate +1!

Here's my list for reference: OH LORD JESUS IT'S A FIRE! | Neheb EDH

I think the single most important aspect of a mono red EDH deck is card draw. With Neheb, you having 5 cards late game is almost as good as say, a simic deck with 10 cards. That's how powerful Neheb is. In mine I run 14 ways to draw cards. Have you considered: Chandra, Flamecaller is pretty alright, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is a creature I know, but he is great with Neheb, as you exile the cards then because of all the damage , you have the mana to cast them; may not be the right fit as you don't like attacking, Humble Defector is pretty good, and again you can give him to the blue deck that already has enough cards, and you can also run Homeward Path as utility, Loreseeker's Stone is good, trust me; you'll always have enough mana for it to benefit you, Prophetic Flamespeaker is nice especially early, risky though if you hit an important card too early so watch out and again you dislike attacking, Throne of the High City and Arch of Orazca might be good as utility land slots, of which you can have a lot.

If you have card draw, it doesn't matter what else you do with the deck because it'll work fine because you're drawing and then ramping with Neheb! These will help with consistency and allow you to win sooner and more often.

So next are some random cards that I've found to be useful: Generator Servant for a turn 3 hasty Neheb, Viashino Heretic for removal and damage, You might like Sizzle, and while I haven't tested Unstable Obelisk yet I think it'll be good.

Most of the cuts I'd suggest appear to be your pet cards so I'll pass on that for now hahah!

Anyway, great deck! Neheb is my #1 Favorite commander so if you want to discus him further let me know; also check out my primer for more ideas!

Hello! been going around looking at Neheb decks and giving suggestion because that's how much I love him! Saw your comment an another list asking for help to here I am!

That's how powerful Neheb is. In mine I run 14 ways to draw cards. Chandra, Torch of Defiance is amazing if you can afford her, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is great with Neheb, as you exile the cards then because of all the damage , you have the mana to cast them, Humble Defector is pretty good, and again you can give him to the blue deck that already has enough cards, and you can also run Homeward Path as utility, Knollspine Dragon can be okay to great, is kinda hard to play and costs a lot, Loreseeker's Stone is good, trust me; you'll always have enough mana for it to benefit you, Prophetic Flamespeaker is nice especially early, risky though if you hit an important card too early so watch out, Sword of Fire and Ice if you can afford it does wonders for Neheb, damage and card draw, Throne of the High City and Arch of Orazca might be good as utility land slots, of which you can have a lot.

Hi! Love Neheb and glad you're giving him a try! Hope you like him too!

Here's my list for reference: OH LORD JESUS IT'S A FIRE! | Neheb EDH

A lot of the key Neheb pieces are already here. Nice work!

Though I don't see Sol Ring for some reason. I know some playgroups ban it so I don't know :)

That's how powerful Neheb is. In mine I run 14 ways to draw cards. Chandra, Torch of Defiance is amazing if you can afford her, Desert of the Fervent, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is great with Neheb, as you exile the cards then because of all the dmage , you have the mana to cast them, Hedron Archive is just a solid ramp/draw artifact, Humble Defector is pretty good, and again you can give him to the blue deck that already has enough cards, and you can also run Homeward Path as utility, Infiltration Lens is great because either Neheb goes unblocked or you get two cards, Knollspine Dragon can be okay to great, is kinda hard to play and costs a lot, Loreseeker's Stone is good, trust me; you'll always have enough mana for it to benefit you, Prophetic Flamespeaker is nice especially early, risky though if you hit an important card too early so watch out, Reforge the Soul a red staple, Sword of Fire and Ice if you can afford it does wonders for Neheb, damage and card draw, Throne of the High City and Arch of Orazca might be good as utility land slots, of which you can have a lot.

if you have card draw, it doesn't matter what else you do with the deck because it'll work fine because you're drawing and then ramping with Neheb!

So next are some random cards that I've found useful: Generator Servant for a turn 3 hasty neheb, Fortune Thief to not die from your own spells, Viashino Heretic removal and damage, You also seem to need more small burn spells to fuel the big ones, so Firebrand Archer, Flamebreak, Sizzle, stuff like that. I haven't tested Unstable Obelisk but I think it'll be good.

As for cuts: Thermo-Alchemist(firebrand Archer is better IMO), Star of Extinction can be countered by a Strip Mine and doesn't hurt players, Braid of Fire is cool but 75% of the mana is usually wasted, Koth of the Hammer doesn't really do enough and his ultimate isn't all that great, Hellkite Charger's trigger is on atack so you can't use Neheb's mana for it, Combustible Gearhulk seems good but your opponent will always choose the option worse for you.

Anyway, great start! Neheb is my #1 Favorite commander so if you ever need any help or have questions let me know/look at my primer!

theindigoeffect on Looking for Creatures that Cheat ...

3 weeks ago

I've been tuning my Animar, Soul of Elements deck for a while, and while I'm usually quite good at protecting him with cards like Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, Voidmage Prodigy, and Venser, Shaper Savant, I think that I still need more low cmc creatures that can cheat out my fatties, just in case Animar, Soul of Elements gets nuked.

A little information about my deck: I don't run anything but creatures, which gives me a lot of synergy and allows me to make uninhibited use of cards Nullstone Gargoyle and Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, so I'm not interested in non-creature cards like Quicksilver Amulet.

I run a few Eldrazi, but the deck is mostly focused on playing creatures with stax/disruption effects like Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Grenzo, Havoc Raiser.

I don't know of many cards like Elvish Piper, other than Djinn of Wishes and Mindwrack Liege, but while they are decent, they aren't quite as efficient as Elvish Piper is, and I could still use more options.

Please help!

Gleeock on The Boros problem

3 weeks ago

Good points, limited damage-to-card draw may be nice, more neheblike type of identity. I feel like Boros' largest issue is being somewhat lacking in an identity diversity compared to most the other colors... Yes they are almost exclusively combat oriented. This is kindof an issue where other dual combos can often choose to play agro-combat if they wish to they also have so much more access to non-combat game winners. More cards like: Grenzo, Havoc Raiser to cause unusual mass combat consequences especially with all that Boros double strike.

MRDOOM3 on Obsidian Fireheart

Just so you know, your commander can only be a Legendary creature. Since you said stax, maybe you could consider replacing your commander with Zo-Zu the Punisher, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, or Heartless Hidetsugu?
