Gut Shot Discussion

You're thinking of Grapeshot. Gut Shot is perfectly legal.

Sweet brew! Some suggestions:

Sub Seal of Strength for Llanowar Augur. Harder to hit with removal for most decks

Land Grant to lower land count and freely fetch

Blight Mamba - 8 infect creatures is just too few imo, as an occasional infect player

Gut Shot for sideboard

also you should side board a playset of Gut Shot to pop dorks and Delver of Secrets  Flip and pick of planenswalkers that enter and minus to 1 loyalty i.e Liliana of the Veil and Jace, the Mindsculptor

Gut Shot is a good option too for that last tricky bit of life, you just have to make sure not to kill yourself. Even Sign in Blood can be a kill card if you get the wall combos going and just need a little extra push.

MTGPALADIN on Blue-Red Cantrips

1.I would cut the Artful Dodge for Sleight of Hand. More cantrips will help you build spell count while filtering through the deck

  1. I agree drop the Gut Shot for Rift Bolt. This will give you needed removal so your creatures can attack while adding to spell count.

  2. Soul-Scar Mage for Monastery Swiftspear4.maybe run x3 Elusive Spellfist instead of Kiln Fiend because it gives its self unblockable and pick up one more copy of Stormchaser Mage for the haste.

  3. As much as it pains me to say delver of secrets instead of Blistercoil Weird. Neither one of these creatures are going to swing turn 1. Delver does have evasion and while it doesnt pump with spell count its still a very real clock and complements the Titan's Strength and the Assault Strobe.

I hope these suggestions are helpful, but you should make the changes you want for your deck.

Axtel on Uh... THROW THE WALL!

Omg harbingerofduh, thanks so much for the suggestion! I realized when I made the deck that Gut Shot would be bad because you pay 2 life, but I didn't really have any quick thoughts on what could be switched out. I immediately realized, when you said Death's Shadow, what card to remove. It's such a good combo with Wall of Blood and I hope to see more revisions like this! Someday I would like to make and take one of these Janky decks to a tourney of some kind! Thanks again for the suggestion!

Take out Herbal Poultice since you'll never be able to use it, possibly even Bone Saw.

Add Kobolds of Kher Keep, Gut Shot, and/or possibly Lotus Petal if Bone Saw is kept.

This would be an awesome deck to pull out on people, and land destruction decks wpuld cry.

xyr0s on Guttersnipe's Party Games!

Never really been a fan of Guttersnipe, as it's a 3 mana creature, that doesn't do anything on its own. That wouldn't be so bad, but the decks that really want the effect of guttersnipe usually do something to their opponent during turn 3... and playing guttersnipe is letting your opponent of terribly easy. But if you really wanted to go to town on it, perhaps you should play some "free" spells? Like Gut Shot and Mutagenic Growth?

Why play a full set of Reverberate over for example Searing Blaze or Lava Spike? Both are good burn cards, that play ok if you topdeck them into an empty hand - Reverberate is only as good as whatever else you have on hand...
