Hijack Discussion

Pal00ka on Rakdrazi

I'm going to suggest you change this completely, here it goes! :)

Golems. Big golems. Go golem tribal like Altar Golem, Colossus of Sardia, Platinum Emperion, Phyrexian Colossus, Mage-Ring Responder, Colossus of Akros, etc.

But a weakness is many do not untap...but wait! Artifacts like Magewright's Stone, Voltaic Construct, Thousand-Year Elixir, Clock of Omens, Voltaic Key, etc. do just that. More fun though can be had with Threaten effects that you can use either on opponents' stuff or to untap your own. Interactive decks few!

A fun twist would be to have Bosh, Iron Golem out + Hijack, etc + Liquimetal Coating/Silverskin Armor to fling any of their creatures back into their faces.

And there's lots of fun utility golems to abuse. Ancestral Statue can bounce a big guy who attacked and just recast cheaply due to Rakdos' ability. Solemn Simulacrum is a staple. Beast of Burden takes advantage of token decks. Glass Golem's art looks wicked ;). Precursor Golem can add in some 1-shot draw spells like Crimson Wisps to draw a ton if lucky. Sundering Titan for fun control.

Feldon of the Third Path, Daretti, Scrap Servant, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Tuktuk the Explorer, and Urabrask the Hidden are all legendaries that play nicely with a theme like this I think.

So keep your burn/damage to activate Rakdos' ability, add some haste enabler like Fervor so your golems can attack upon entering, include fun enchantments like Blood Mist, Flameshadow Conjuring, and Mana Echoes.

warren667 on Burn it Down

In the description you said your main goal is to Burn the opponent down and creatures are just a backup plan. If this is truly the case here are a few suggestions.

Every deck with red has Lightning Bolt because it is the strongest common and you should consider investing in them.

-2 Assembled Alphas -1 Clear a Path +3 Guttersnipe gutter snipe is faster than the alphas in multiple ways and fits the flavor very well.

Searing Blaze, Lightning Storm, Magma Jet, Skullcrack, Shard Volleythese are all great cheap burn spells that can replace Weapon Surge, Tormenting Voice, Cathartic Reunion, Hijack Lava Axe, Lightning Talons Seismic Stomp, Talons of Falkenrath, Hammerhand

-2Speedway Fanatic -2 Scourge Wolf + 4Hellspark Elemental-2Rummaging Goblin -2 Dragon Hatchling + 4Keldon Marauders-2Ruinous Gremlin -2 Insolent Neonate +4 Spark Elemental

12 Creatures is plenty for a burn deck so any extras I didn't name can become burn spells.

With all of that said it looks like you are a actually pushing for a more creature dmg based deck with all of the combat tricks and enchants that you added in the original deck. If this is the case I would direct you to this deck for something to gain inspiration from https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/474720#online

JakeandJoelareMagic, you can check my built at Boros Dwarf-nought.I'm considering both Shock or Chandra's Pyrohelix to clear the chump blocker.I prepared 3 Hijack in sideboard if opponent guard with fatty/flyer. Alternatively Tears of Valakut or Incendiary Flow

razelfark on Vampire Artifact Sacriface

I would likely take out Sly Requisitioner as the card only triggers on NONtoken artifacts and you do not have many artifacts in the main board to trigger this. Same could be said about Pia's Revolution. Not saying you have to remove these cards, but you need more normal artifacts in the main deck to make good use of them.

I would highly suggest Scrapheap Scrounger as the card can keep coming back from its own skill and becomes an easy sacrifice target when you need it to be.

The balance feels of somewhere but I am not sure where or how to fix it. Like the idea overall. A silly thought for the deck would be any of the steal cards like Hijack so you can take their creature or artifact, use it, then sacrifice it to one of your creatures.

I was actually thinking about Hijack but Kari Zev's Expertise is defiantly better. I think it would help as well.

I've been considering Hungry Flames since I built it, so I think I'll throw it in. I like Flame Lash but I usually try to stay away from burn that costs more than 3 mana.

I had Chandra, Pyrogenius and Jace, Unraveler of Secrets in at first because they were the only blue and red walkers I had. But they were too slow. Flamecaller would be excellent if I can trade for some, can't afford to buy them right now. That's why deck is only $23.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions, I appreciate it. Thanks for the upvote as well!

Okay, interesting idea. But what happens when they have Lost Legacy? I mean, why not run even one of the modification cards mainboard?

I also might make the suggestion of non-artifact specific removal cards like Anguished Unmaking. Possibly for your Flaying Tendrils in the sideboard. (Walkers can be a b*#$% to deal with)

Lastly, have you thought about using cards like Wrangle or Hijack as a means of crewing/controlling the enemy?

lordnova42 on Help with fleshing out my ...

2 months ago

I used to play magic back in high school, but quit shortly after, and haven't played in 14 years, until this weekend.
I went to the midnight pre-release, made a R/G deck, but didn't do that good, 16 out of 28. The Sunday pre-release I made a B/R deck, and took 2nd out of 8th (barely had enough players to hold the tournament).
Some of the guys I was playing with invited me to the Tuesday night standard games they play there, so I need to flesh out my deck.
Here's what I made for my second tournament:
7 Mountain
1 Spire of Industry
9 Swamp
1 Aether Poisoner
2 Alley Strangler
1 Consulate Skygate
1 Consulate Turret
1 Daring Demolition
1 Embraal Bruiser
1 Foundry Hornet
1 Frontline Rebel
1 Gonti's Machinations
1 Hijack
1 Irontread Crusher
1 Lathnu Sailback
1 Night Market Lookout
1 Ornithopter
1 Perilous Predicament
1 Prophetic Prism
1 Quicksmith Rebel
1 Salivating Gremlins
2 Shock
1 Spontaneous Artist
1 Thriving Rats
1 Yahenni, Undying Partisan

Here is my entire inventory of magic cards:
Using just the cards I already have, what cards would you recommend adding, or swapping out, to make this a 60 card casually competitive deck?
I do plan on increasing my collection, but I have a very limited disposable income at this time, so can't go out and buy expensive cards, so I'm probably going to stick to picking up a few booster packs each payday.
Thanks!

He prevented 3 of the damage. I was hoping to end game after the Hijack lol. We were not sure about this so we decided I was not able to play Bone Splinters but know we know better for next time. Thank you Zaueski
