Kyle_Winter on Zagras and the Dethtouch Party

This Commander looks dope! Personally, my favorite part about him is his ability that makes all your other creatures have Deathtouch. My take-away is now, your opponents never get to have creatures or yours get through their defenses unblocked! I looked in to some cards that fit the new 'party' mechanic in Zendikar to help your Commander come out.

Grim Lavamancer is more of a sideboard card in these deck against some control/midrange decks or creature heavy decks.

Destroyerbirb I'm not entirely convinced on Blistercoil Weird but it is a cheap card so I'll give 2 a try.

I do agree that Stormchaser Mage is unimpressive. I'm saving up for Soul-Scar Mage. Do you think Grim Lavamancer might have a place? It can potentially add some extra reach, I think.

DRS, when used with fetchlands, is Birds of Paradise on top of being Grim Lavamancer and bad Scavenging Ooze(that taps and doesn't buff itself).

Basically, it's everything any green and/or red deck wants, but in green and black and it also enables lots of colors fairly effectively.

Without Fetches, though, it's just a Grim Lavamancer with a bad Scooze ability tacked on.

Deck Change: I've taken out Eidolon of the Great Revel for Grim Lavamancer.

I never thought I'd see the day Grim Lavamancer would become bulk :( I loved that card back when I started modern it was like an 8-10 dollar card back then and had a small resurgence when Skred top 8'ed an open or go. But I guess it doesn't have the resilience to survive back to back reprints.

DeinoStinkus on Double Masters Speculation

In some cases, but as a budget player it would be invaluable. I don't think I would be a good drafter of Masters sets. Besides, a 2/2 for two hybrid mana isn't terrible. The draft environment of 2XM will be very different, definitely, but I don't think that cards like Shusher are the problem. The problems are bulk rares like Grim Lavamancer.
