Hellrider Discussion

Teideim on The +1/+1's of Gruul

1 hour ago

I really like the simplicity of the deck. This deck reminds me a lot of the blitz decks from Innistrad/Ravnica's Return Standard. That play style was generally 1 drop, 2 drop, 3 drop, Hellrider, win. Their preferred one drop was usually Experiment One so the next turn they could usually swing in for 2, or play more Ex1's. It's a shame you aren't playing black because you could then play stuff like Dreg Mangler and Lotleth Troll, which would put you're deck to the next level. Other cards that might interest you are Burning-Tree Emissary and Slitherhead. People have also thrown a lot of hydra's out there, but no one's mentioned Primordial Hydra. I believe it's strictly better than Endless One simple because you don't have to put a large amount of mana but can still become a ridiculous threat.

wakawakawaka thanks :) stupid Lightning Bolt ::looks at my burn deck:: ooooh yyyeeeaaaa.. I really like Brutal Hordechief, kind of reminds me of Hellrider -haste + lifegain.. which could benefit the turn I play it (if not bolted before I attack) but you are correct that it doesn't effect the board enough to put it in here. And it would be weird to sideboard just in case I play someone that doesn't run bolts... I like the idea of Spellskite in here, maybe 1 main and 1 side? Will definitely be editing the sideboard with most of these suggestions, thanks again

I have a Rith deck, and it is a very fun route to go. I like your focus (and obvious budget leanings) so I'll keep my suggestions along those lines.
Hellrider - makes your swarm even more lethal
Nullmage Shepherd - makes your swarm utility removal
Mentor of the Meek - solid draw tech
Nacatl War-Pride - hidden gem that is a huge beating - once you have attacked with this with a Cathars' Crusade out, you may never cut it again :) Champion of Lambholt - enhances your attacks quite a bit
Spear of Heliod - better anthem #1
Path of Bravery - #2
Assemble the Legion - accelerating token army
Druids' Repository - great mana engine
Glare of Subdual - morph into a control deck if need be
Collective Unconscious - a lot of cards

Num. 1 - Reconnaissance - I can not overly stress how awesome this card has been. Being able to attack wildly without fear of losing any creatures is a big plus. The pseudo-vigilance (untapping whole team at end-of combat post damage) also makes some of the above cards insane. I had a whole board scoop when they saw it with Glare of Subdual. It does the same kind of enabling with the Nullmage, with the War-Pride, with the Repository, etc..

If you are okay with splurging for expensive cards, some key cards for the token theme could be: Craterhoof Behemoth, Parallel Lives, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Eldrazi Monument, Aura Shards, Aggravated Assault...

I'm think about replacing Hellrider with Ball Lightning. Yay or nay?

Gruul Guildgate is too slow Rootbound Crag.

Greater Good, Elemental Bond and Kavu Lair you need more draw.

Xenagos, God of Revels self explanatory.

Vexing Shusher for Spellbreaker Behemoth.

Xenagos, the Reveler ramp, tokenspawn and his ultimate is dangerous.

Opal Palace great addition for any commander deck.

Hellrider is not very good in commander unless your running a token spawn deck suggest Inferno Titan.

Ant Queen for Avenger of Zendikar.

What about Keldon Marauders instead of Hellrider? While it may not have haste, it is a guaranteed 2 damage for 2 mana. Max it could do would be 8 damage due to vanishing. Not sure how often you can get to 4 mana to cast Hellrider. I really would hate it to have Shard Volley and Hellrider in hand as if you used Shard Volley it would hamper you casting Hellrider at a later time due to the loss of a land.

From playtesting this a bit, it seems like Hellrider got stuck in hand a lot. You might want to consider cutting it down to 2 of

You probably want to use Marath, Will of the Wild (which gives you tokens) or Gahiji, Honored One (which gives you buffs and a political advantage in that people want to keep you around for the buffs) as your commander. Mayael doesn't really lend herself to a token play style. As for red cards, generic good cards in those colors (a few token-aiding ones included) are Chaos Warp, Chain Reaction, Hellrider, Assemble the Legion, Brightflame, Decimate, Hull Breach, Aurelia, the Warleader, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Legion Loyalist, Malignus, and Balefire Liege. Hope this helps! :)
