Hellrider Discussion

Strictly_Eric on [Modern] Mardu Control?

I'm not too particularly attached to Butcher of the Horde. I do like the card, but it's really there to make use of all the little dudes I drop early that wouldn't have any impact on the game as the turns go by. A "finisher" if you will.

Playing Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat turns the deck into a drain deck, not an zoo/ turn 'em sideways deck. If I were playing a drain deck, I would rather have cards like Carrier Thrall, Festering Goblin, or even Mortician Beetle. But I don't wanna play a drain deck.

Cutting the 1 Hellrider does make sense. But if I can't draw into Butcher of the Horde late, and I still have all my dudes, I might be able to just turn everything sideways and win without even assigning combat damage. That being said, I'm probably gonna cut the Hellrider.

I have thought about Bloodghast, Dark Confidant, and AEther Vial but I did not include them in my tappedout list because I do not have them in my collection. I have thought about acquiring them, but because I don't really have any way to proxy them (I play on mtgo and I don't have a consistent, or broad variety of decks or people to play with paper magic) I can't actually tell if they would be worth shelling out for.

Cutting Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch seems like a nice cut, but a 4 mana 4/4 first haste also seems nice. What makes Ashenmoor Liege easier to remove than say Goblin Guide? I don't think an opponent would turn 1 Thoughtseize it and once it's in play it's probably just going to sit back and be an anthem. If they want to remove it, it's gonna cost em 4 life.

The thing on this deck is you have multiple parts that you want to put together. i think you want to greatfully use Butcher of the Horde?

Therefore you need some fodder. You can go for Tokens or as i see what you are thinking about is casting creatures that can come back like Gravecrawler. But if you want to get into these mechanics you have probably to rebuild your deck a bit because its not very focused.

There are multiple cards that are great with seccing your own creatures for value ther is your butcher but you could also play bloodartist or Zulaport Cutthroat to get extra value.

To recast your Gravecrawler you have to get more zombies into play Geralfs mesenger is one great zombie that i mentioned but there are some other pretty neat zombies. Also i think 1 Hellrider does not do the trick and if you want to really play his abbility you have to shift your deck in a different direction. so Maybe just rethink your deck as a whole and focus on one strategy first and maybe build one or two synergies with that strategy.

If you have any further questions or something just ask for it. we could also use the chat if you want to.

if you want to go funther the haste and smash things you should play other cards then Butcher of the Horde because its maybe a bit too slow for really rushing your opponent.

Either way you should look how your deck should work out in the future. There are some nice cards to improve the whole secrafice thing. Another great creature is Bloodghast.

But to answer your question i would cut Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch because there is no need for that card in your deck and Ashenmoor Liege because its only halfway good in your deck and is too easy to remove.

I like Goblin Bushwhacker better than Mutagenic Growth.

Hellrider is an excellent finisher for your deck.

Looks like an awesome deck. Love the Hellrider, he fits really well here. I think you could make it faster and more focused though. I would drop the Knight of Infamy and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet for Relentless Dead, Cemetery Reaper or Lifebane Zombie. Also, maybe Grave Titan over Thundermaw Hellkite. You probably could cut one or two lands as well. Can't wait to see where this goes! +1'd

Krenko can support Eldrazi Monument by himself. Increasing the power of your goblins, giving them evasion, and making them indestructible is a decent investment for 5 mana.

Am I missing why Silverskin Armor is in here? Bonesplitter seems kind of weak, too. since you can make a bunch of Goblins, typically global pumps will do more damage. Illusionist's Bracers would be a better fit, since it would double the number of Goblins you get per Krenko tap (well, actually, it'd do more than that. If you controller 8 Goblins and tap Krenko equipped with Bracers, you'd get 8, and then 16 Goblins, resulting in 32 Goblins).

Beetleback Chief may be better than Goblin Heelcutter. +6 Goblins per Krenko tap seems better than forcing a single creature not to block considering you're able to attack with so many creatures at once. Gempalm Incinerator also seems better than Outnumber, given that it can be a creature if you need it, and draws a card + Outnumber's effect all the rest of the time for only one more mana.

Hellrider should probably be in here somewhere.

Why are you running Goblin Rally over Siege-Gang Commander? He puts in the same number of creatures for the same mana, except one of them has more power and a better effect.

Shared Animosity is probably too good to leave out. On that same note, Tears of Rage is pretty powerful if you really like Shared Animosity, as well.

i would take out Scorchwalker , Hellspark Elemental , Arc Runner , Dynacharge , Blistering Firecat , Ashenmoor Gouger , Guttersnipe cause it is slow and would be a dead draw and same for Madcap Skills

and maybe take 2 Hellrider and 2 Ashenmoor Liege if it is a good deck then late game wont matter cause you'll win by turn 3 or 4

Wolf of Devil's Breach, I just don't see it, especially in red deck wins, it's just not fast enough like Stormbreath Dragon or Hellrider were. the only reason why I'll second guess myself is because it escapes Languish and Grasp of Darkness which are everywhere
