Immolation Shaman Discussion
1 month ago
I haven't been able to test my Torbran deck in person yet but I'll give a few of the ideas that I had for my deck. My idea was to play stuff like Immolation Shaman , Harsh Mentor and Manabarbs to punish players for using their cards. I added Furnace of Rath and Dictate of the Twin Gods to make for some explosive turns. I like to make my decks a little more enchantment based because enchantment removal is a little less common in my meta. I also don't blame you if you don't like my tactics because my playgroup says I brew my decks with "Maximum Salt Levels." Feel free to check out my deck or send me a message if you have any other questions I might be able to answer. Good Luck!!

Hey man, this is a really tight list! My suggestions are going to seem half-hearted, because there isn't a lot I would change here. All the key pieces I was looking for are already here. Well done.
I really like Torbran as a pressure and efficient boardwipe commander, so I'm glad to see both of those elements here.
Here's some cards to consider:
Immolation Shaman is another pressure card you're missing.
Satyr Firedancer is some cool tech with direct burn spells, plus the +2 damage from Torbran stacks!
Shadowspear from the upcoming set might be awesome in here. You can target stuff and they lose indestructible. Huge.
Drakuseth, Maw of Flames is a great finisher, with Torbran he's actually dealing 9, 6, 5, and 5.
Let's talk about card advantage. If you add ANY of the cards I suggest, please let it be these.
Cavalier of Flame is a good self wheel/later damage, as well as Khorvath's Fury . Reforge the Soul is just a solid wheel and budget Wheel of Fortune. These plus the wheels/looting you already have go great with Glint-Horn Buccaneer , who's also solid on his own. Humble Defector is my second favorite magic card, and is a great political card or just combos with Homeward Path , which you already have. Tome of Legends has been finding it's way into most of my decks with low cost commanders, if you attack with Torbran you should consider it. Ignite the Future is basically Red's harmonize, and I suggest it for any red deck without blue. And since you're in one color, Endless Atlas is a solid draw engine. Finally, Light Up the Stage is an okayish little draw spell you might consider.
Here's some cards I'm not convinced by and you might consider cutting for my other suggestions.
Chandra, Awakened Inferno Emblems don't have a color, so Torbran doesn't affect then. Yeah she can wipe the board, but you can more easily do that for 1 mana instead of 6.
Electrodominance under-preformed in Neheb.
Sundering Stroke I think is too expensive for what it does. It's hard to get 7 red without Neheb out.
By Force unless you really have to deal with artifacts every game. Add draw to get to the other removal you have faster.
Price of Glory under-preformed in Neheb, people just hold up mana rocks.
Urabrask the Hidden Haste at 5cmc is way too late. Replace with Cavalier if you really think you need it, or anything else.
Thran Dynamo this deck is hungry for red mana. I'd suggest finding a mana rock that gives red. Arcane signet maybe?
Magebane Armor is cool, but most of your sweepers don't kill your important creatures.
That's all I got for cuts, again. tight list man. Love it.

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell is my favorite deck right now. I've found it very hard to keep him out, as I run more 'all creatures' damage. He's also super hungry for mana.
I like to run Pyrohemia and Sword of Fire and Ice / Sword of Sinew and Steel to protect him. My favorite play ever with Torbran is having him, Repercussion , and Pyrohemia out. Paying a red to do 3 damage to each opposing creature and 5 damage to each opponent for each creature they control is nasty, and you only do 1 damage to you and your creatures each time. Those are the kinda things that make this deck so fun, it's just not very consistent. Maybe you've had better luck?
I've had good luck with Embermaw Hellion . Having another source of additive damage has been valuable on multiple occasions, but I go heavy into the doubling effects too with Furnace of Rath and Dictate of the Twin Gods .
Today is a good day.
I definitely expected the first incarnation of this deck to play more as burn and was surprised by the stax-y vibe it has in practice.
I took a pretty hard turn from single target spells like Lightning Bolt . I haven't run into too many hard choices between hitting everything or keeping my board, but I run less creatures. There have definitely been times I've /wanted/ to have a single target spell.
Anywho, awesome deck and I hope it does well for you. I'm definitely going to see what cards I could see playing from yours that I'm not in my own.

Dreadhorde Arcanist / Young Pyromancer ; strong and meta, but end up defining any deck they are in. Break Through the Line is an interesting enabler, but cards that aren't dealing damage are a little weak here.

I definitely like a lot of those suggestions. Ronin Cliffrider , Gratuitous Violence , and Quest for Pure Flame are some that stand out. Siege-Gang Commander is already in the deck. Sulfuric Vortex will probably go back in there to help combat life gain decks. The deck used to be a bunch of Tims and passive burn pieces, but I've moved away from that towards a more combat oriented deck, so cards like Manabarbs and Immolation Shaman aren't the sort of things I'm looking for.
