MoGoose831 on 3rd Degree - ULTRA BUDGET!!!

3 days ago

Thanks dthoreson813! Yea Hungry Flames is my main source of removal and had been performing exceptionally well!

I'm loving Charging Monstrosaur, it was a good swap and Imminent Doom has proven to be a solid add as well!

Harsh Mentor and By Force have been working pretty well in my sideboard too!

Thanks for all the recommendations guys!

Hahaha I didn't even think of the flavor that Cathartic Reunion brings with the scenario; Absolutely beautiful indeed! I'm having a hard time fitting it in though, replace Chart A Course?

Solid call on sideboarding Spell Pierce. I'm thinking Abrade and Hungry Flames are good exchanges, especially if he ends up running a creature light strategy.

Lands will be fixed, currently a place holding. Highland Lake will make it in definitely. I was on the fence with Harnessed Lightning and Aether Hub because of the budget aspect to the build and not playing Glimmer of Genius, but I convinced myself to pick up copies for another deck so I'll probably exchange them into this build.

Thank you kindly, it is very much appreciated!

On a family reunion, beating your brother to the ground while playing Cathartic Reunion. This would be beautiful haha.

Anyway, I would sugest Spell Pierce might be a good card to sideboard, since it's a cheap way to protect your creatures from removal early game. Censor is also very good to keep your brother from doing his stuff while you beat him down (and it's also a cantrip that can be cycled if you are in the late game and he can pay the 1 mana from the counter. The cycle also synergises wuth the drake, pumping it up).

To make some room, I think Hungry Flames could be a weak link, since it has a high cost for what it does. Maybe moving Abrade to a sideboard? I prefer to mainboard Harnessed Lightning and play Aether Hub to help the mana fixing. Playing a dual land, even Highland Lake (which is cheap) could be a good call too.

Good luck with your brother!

Hungry Flames and vance's blasting cannons might be good fits for your deck.

Soul-Scar Mage is quite a bit better than Firebrand Archer IMO. But neither are super amazing in this deck I fear. I've used Firebrand Archer a bit before and even in a deck like this, it quite often doesn't end up doing very much. You're likely better off with more burn or counters.

You should probably try to run Lightning Strike as well. Maybe replace Essence Scatter and put Negate sideboard. Or you could run Tormenting Voice or Cathartic Reunion as extra card filtering, allowing you to more easily curve out for imminent doom.

Harnessed Lightning when combined with Dynavolt Tower allows you to either funnel your energy into the tower to deal 3 to face or to use energy generated by Dynavolt Tower to feed Harnessed Lightning, pretty neat synergy there worth at least considering.

I'd say you also need at least a few (2 or 3) more 1 drop spells...maybe Spell Pierce,Magma Spray, or Unsummon? Honestly not sure about that one, I'm leaning towards Unsummon personally but Magma Spray is really good in certain matchups, but only having 8 one drops will make it hard to get your Imminent Doom rolling.

You also really need least against aggro. I'd consider Sweltering Suns or the new ixalan card Fiery Cannonade as a 2 or 3 of mainboard with the rest in your sideboard. Hour of Devastation might also fit quite well.

Insult / Injury would be quite a good 3 drop for you with imminent doom already out in play and provides 2 triggers for dynavolt tower. I'd consider dropping Hungry Flames for it. Or just dropping hungry flames for some sweepers. In reality with both Imminent Doom and Dynavolt Tower, there might not be any room for a card like Insult / Injury as you only need so many 3 drops.

What this deck NEEDS is Fireball, or Disintegrate or just some other flexible X burn spell. Pull from Tomorrow is a nice flexible option to trigger Imminent Doom at 3 and up, but having an x burn spell that can go face would make this deck play a lot more smoothly.

A good sideboard choice for you might be Enigma Drake as adding that card game 2 or 3 after the opponent more than likely removes their removal from their deck, could just prove to be GG for them.

If money were no object Hazoret the Fervent or Chandra, Torch of Defiance would both be amazing, but money is an object, so that's irrelevant. I hope you enjoyed my novel. Lol, fun deck to try to make work.

Atroxreaper thanks for the suggestion. I do like Hungry Flames its like a higher cmc slightly less effective Searing Blaze thats been played properly however, I feel if I were to MB it, Bomat Courier and Chandra, Torch of Defiance would become less useful. I'll definitely Sb it.

To be perfectly honest LikwidMagic I brought the Abrade into the main board just to free up room in the side side board. As a bonus It really helped the mana curve as well. Feels good turn three burn there blocker and play a 2/2 first striker. Over all Abrade main board in my testing has just been better then Hungry Flames.
