Hellkite Tyrant Discussion

Neat deck! Hellkite Tyrant could be fun, but based on your mana curve he's probably too mana intensive.

Patdypat on Best Gruul Creatures to trigger ...

I mean if you want a board wipe on a stick Balefire Dragon is something to consider. Hellkite Tyrant is also pretty good and gives you a win condition too. If you are interested to double the trigger of Ilharg Strionic Resonator is something to consider.

aarnok on Feldon's Alzheimer's is Flaring Up Again

Hey man, always love to see another fellow Feldon fan out there. Few questions and comments though:

I am not sold on the following cards: Sword of the Animist , Liquimetal Coating and Chandra, Flamecaller Sure we want to ramp up fast, but most of the time I don't have a creature or the mana to attack with the equipped Sword of the Animist . How is that for you? For Liquimetal Coating I don't see the potential, except to combo with Hellkite Tyrant . But the impact and chances seems to small to get them. For Chandra, she seems to cost to much for me. 6 mana is a lot to spend for. Are you using that for her +1 mainly? Is that 6 damage so much of a difference? Her +0 is oke, but also to much for 6 mana. Please tell me what your experiences are.

I would remove Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded and replace it for Sarkhan, Fireblood Cost a bit more, but you have the same effect with control over it. Plus you run a lot of dragons, so his other +1 seems to add up to that. Also I would drop Nahiri's Wrath . I think there are better removals that also don't cost two cards to play.

I like your inclusion of Rowdy Crew . Seems a lot of fun and not so bad when I think more about it.

You seem to run just a few non-basic land cards. Why is that? Cards like Spinerock Knoll , Buried Ruin and Arcane Lighthouse are really good and came with the preconstructed deck as well.

Last are some cards I really think you should add: Goblin Engineer Drakuseth, Maw of Flames (new cards) Hazoret's Monument Endless Atlas and Warstorm Surge . Perhaps also Godo, Bandit Warlord , to get the specific equipments really helps a lot some times.

Overall it seems like a fun deck as well. Lot of looting, but maybe that is what I am missing.

i agree Hellkite Tyrant but you need Mycosynth Lattice and Darksteel Forge to make everything an artifact including lands and take players boards like its nothing and then win in one turn, and then make them all indestructible so there is nothing that can be done about it

I think you should try to add Ugin, the Ineffable , strong even without cutting the cost of your artifacts. The new Mirrodin Besieged could be incredibly helpful I suspect. Storm the Vault  Flip transforms into one of the best lands in the game, it's built for this deck. Chief Engineer would help with the casting cost of your artifacts. Lastly, Hellkite Tyrant will likely win you games.

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

If activate a Contagion Engine it pays for Daretti's second ability. You can just keep cycling artifacts without using the +2 ability at all. It REALLY spiked in price during War of the Spark however.

Grinning Totem is fun to play, sac and play again. Hellkite Tyrant is a win con.
