Homing Lightning Discussion

Rakashi on I'm beginner. I need help ...

2 years ago

BabyK I think annoy people it's good for me. xD I'll use the mono blue merfolk in the future. I'll use these cards you mentioned in my Izzet deck.

Thanks for your answer! =D

Catalog9000 What card is that ??? It's amaziiinng!!! I loved this card in the first sight! Thanks guy for your suggestion! =D

PatrickBuerke Hello Patrick, thanks for your suggestion! I'll use the Electrolyze and Stormchaser Mage in my Izzet deck. I think the Siren Stormtamer is good for my Azorius deck maybe. Thanks! =D

sylvannos Hello sylvannos!! Thanks so much for your explain and suggestions! I liked your answer. It'll help me a lot. I'll use your mentioned cards in my Izzet deck. Sometimes, I have difficulty in dealing with aggro decks. I use AEtherize every match and it's save my life! What cards do you know to deal with aggro decks in multiplayer mode? Now, I prefer the cheap cards than the expensives ones.

What do you think about these cards bellow in Izzet deck aggro/control?
- Skullcrack
- Dynavolt Tower
- Goblin Charbelcher
- Aetherflux Reservoir
- Homing Lightning (Is it good against token decks?)
- Grim Lavamancer
- Jori En, Ruin Diver

Thanks you! Your suggestions help me a lot! =D

A couple of things:

  • If you wish to create another line when typing up individual cards, press the space bar 3 times then move the new item to the next line.

  • If you wish to display a card put the card name in both brackets: [ ].

  • Now as for your deck, I think the changes made so far work. I'd try to get your Elvish Mystic count to 4, but that's just me.

  • With my suggestions:

1.) Ruric Thar, the Unbowed and Burning Sun's Avatar are fine with staying. My only reason for removing Burning Sun's Avatar is the triple red cost you have to pay to play it.

2.) got it.

3.) Magma Jet's are fine as long as Ruric Thar, the Unbowed isn't present.

4.) Charging Monstrosaur: I guess for the deck you are running he works.

5.) Mortal's Resolve: understood.

6.) Flinthoof Boar: like Kird Ape you gain a benefit from simply having a mountain and a forest in your deck. the P/T boost is easy to obtain for the low cost that they are. Additionally, they don't hurt your wallet. As for Experiment One and Dryad Militant, if you are going for a more aggressive approach, then they can work, but like saber4734 said, you want to have one main focus and maybe smaller side thoughts in your deck.

7.) Wasteland Viper: its cute, but as a 1/2 with deathtouch, it mostly just sits there waiting to die without ways to pump it up.

8.) Other thoughts:
- Skullcrack -> better, if you are going more of the burn route than the creature heavy deck.

Hope this helps!

I like the idea of flashing in Wolfir Avenger plus the ability to regenerate him. Skullcrack over Clan Defiance simply because it's an instant. Burn Away is too high CMC for what it does. Homing Lightning can be a dud so I'd say no as well. No sense in spending 4 mana to burn 1 creature.

Homing Lightning made the cut because of the temptation to wipe out all token, however Wash Out would do the same thing and then some.

I cannot recommend Wash Out enough. Not sure what to replace and I gotta run. Ill think about it. Maybe Homing Lightning?

Hello! I happened upon this deck while brainstorming for a deck of my own. Figured I could add my two cents to the mix and see if you like anything I have to say. :)

Firstly, I'm not a huge fan of Nivix Cyclops. On the surface, it looks like it would be a promising card (hence why I used to run him in my decks). However, I've discovered that for the same kind of card, running Kiln Fiend, Elusive Spellfist, or even Monastery Swiftspear are more beneficial and play better.

It looks like the arsenal of instants/sorceries are decent. I've never tried of played against Galvanic Bombardment yet but flavor-wise it looks like a fun card. I would consider taking out Searing Spear however, as it's just another overpriced Lightning Bolt and can be taken up by something more useful. Skullcrack and Flames of the Blood Hand may be useful instead, especially if you plan on going against any decks with considerable lifegain.

If you had to choose between them, I would say Echoing Truth over Homing Lightning any day. Homing Lightning costs twice as much as Echoing Truth to play, and Echoing Truth can still get rid of any creature tokens that have 5+ toughness, in addition to artifacts and enchantments (albeit temporarily for those). Also, perhaps consider Elixir of Immortality for your sideboard, for long games/mill? (And just going to put it out there, I love Keranos, God of Storms.)

I haven't play tested this deck much,I was wondering how Galvanic Bombardment plays, I like that its cheap, but are you better of with something like Lightning Strike or Skullcrack

Are Mizzium Mortars and Homing Lightning good choices for crowd control in the sideboard?

I was thinking of swapping out Dissolve for Echoing Truth, ideally I would like to use Cryptic Command but that's a bit pricey for me.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Feltrix on Midrange Izzet Magic? Oh yes!

For token removal, I would use Homing Lightning or, the ultimate token removal, Echoing Truth.
