This is great for a first EDH. You might like these: Launch the Fleet (seems fun with Zada and Aurelia), Seize the Day , Ephemeral Shields , Twinflame , Heat Shimmer , Ghired's Belligerence , Volcanic Wind , Impact Resonance , Magnetic Theft (cheap way to re-equip Sunforger), Gideon's Sacrifice (combos with Arcbond + a spell that gives indestructible for infinite damage), Martyrdom , Kor Chant

Don't think I would ever run that in my life xD. It's at sorcery speed, so can only be cast on your turn. Is effectively a 7 mana deal 6, since 1 damage HAS to go at your team and you will very very rarely have 7 red mana exclusively. Doesn't draw you a card. And it cannot even compare to the damage output of cards like Chandra's Ignition when you consider the number of targets it hits for 2 less mana. Cards like that and Aurelia's Fury , Soul's Fire , and Impact Resonance will outclass it at every turn.

Nice art tho

Hi, long post. I'm looking to get a lot of trading done hopefully.

I'm putting together a Estrid, the Masked Oathbreaker deck. I need to trade for Estrid obviously, and I also need some specific cards to to complete the deck. Here's a list:

1x Estrid, the Masked 1x Breeding Pool 1x Estrid's Invocation 1x Gift of Paradise 1x Imprisoned in the Moon 1x Mystic Remora 1x Weirding Wood 1x Swan Song 1x Swords to Plowshares 1x Kiora's Follower 1x Bramble Sovereign 2x Stasis 1x Hokori, Dust Drinker 1x Linvala, Keeper of Silence 1x Chain of Vapor 1x Spellseeker AnyX Forge of Heroes

I also have some specific wants from recent sets that I would be interested in trading for:

1x Phyrexian Altar (EMA) 2x Generous Gift 1x Gamble 1x Sulfur Falls 1x Finale of Revelation 1x Evolution Sage 1x Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin 1x Karn's Bastion 1x Flux Channeler 1x Bolas's Citadel 1x Karn, the Great Creator 2x Runic Armasaur 1x Biomancer's Familiar 1x Dark-Dweller Oracle 1x Immolation Shaman 1x Rhythm of the Wild 1x Emmara, Soul of the Accord 1x Teysa Karlov 1x Ugin, the Ineffable 1x God-Eternal Oketra 1x Teferi, Time Raveler 1x Saheeli, Sublime Artificer 1x Tithe Taker 1x Light Up the Stage 1x Priest of Forgotten Gods 1x Beast Whisperer 1x Cruel Celebrant 2x Dovin's Veto 1x Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion 1x Primal Amulet  Flip 1x Neheb, the Eternal 1x Deep Forest Hermit 17x Snow-Covered Mountain 1x Goblin Engineer 1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician 1x Cabal Therapist 1x Mirrodin Besieged 1x Hall of Heliod's Generosity 1x Talisman of Hierarchy 1x Talisman of Creativity

And I was also thinking about making a Feather EDH deck, so I would be interested in trading for these cards as well:

1x Feather, the Redeemed 1x Seize the Day 1x Impact Resonance 1x Defiant Strike 1x Inspiring Vantage 1x Aurelia's Fury 1x Rugged Prairie 1x Sunforger

I also have a bunch of commander staples in my binder wants. I'll obviously trade for them for the right offer, but if I haven't listed them here then they're not a priority for me right now.

You can find my Binder here: Link. It should be about 95% up to date. I recommend sorting by price, since there's a lot on there.

Here's a list of some of my notable haves that I'm looking to trade:

1x Leyline of the Void 1x Ensnaring Bridge (STH) 1x Sakashima the Impostor 1x The Chain Veil 1x Purphoros, God of the Forge 2x Vedalken Orrery 1x Scourge of the Throne 1x Life from the Loam 1x Tainted Pact 1x Nature's Will 1x Opalescence 1x Isochron Scepter 1x Master Transmuter 2x Sterling Grove 1x Karador, Ghost Chieftain 3x Nim Deathmantle 1x Lotus Bloom 4x Puresteel Paladin

...and others not mentioned.

The reason I don't use cards like Electrostatic Field or Firebrand Archer is because they will deal the damage whether you want them to or not. You must have control over who takes odd damage and even if you can even out two opponents but then odd the other one, you're in just as bad of a position. Solid recommendations though, I like where your head is at.

As for Pyromancer's Goggles and Paradox Engine , you'll notice that the curve tops out at 5, minus some obvious exceptions. This is because after hidetsugu is out, or the onset of him coming out, you want your plays to be as impactful as possible with the threat of ending the game right there. Once Hidetsugu or a x2dmg effect hits the field you are automatically the highest priority threat if your opponents are smart. You won't have time to make your value back on these cards as your crescendo of fire is at its apex at this point in the game. Remember it's the quality of the taps, not the quantity. One tap, maybe two is all you really need to burn down the table. But this being said the deck could really use some fast Manas like Grim Monolith and moxes which I fully intend to get for faster games.

Impact Resonance is actually a solid card for this deck. Very relevant, and I'd leave it up to your choice and your meta if you'd want to include it. For me, there aren't enough aggro decks in my group to justify it over some of my other choices.

This is an awesome list!

Since a third of your deck is instant/sorceries do you think Electrostatic Field or Guttersnipe work at all for you? Electrostatic Field for pinging everyone 1 at a time to bring people to proper odd or even if necessary. Probably too situational but still.

There’s also Pyromancer's Goggles for some copy shenanigans. Impact Resonance ? Maybe? Could be good creature removal even though your main focus is player’s life totals.

Maybe Paradox Engine for untap utility?

Not sure if any of those actually help but they seem like they could fit in.

I Love redirecting damage!!! Have you thought about adding more doublers? If you haven't you should, these things are fun and fun... is Good! Dictate of the Twin Gods , Insult , Angrath's Marauders , and non traditional utility cards that can copy Mirage Mirror , Strionic Resonator .

Also good adds; Truefire Captain , Eye for an Eye , Impact Resonance , Saving Grace .

Anyway since it has been 3years since you updated this it's unlikely that you will see this anytime soon, but have fun hitting players with their own damage! I know I do =D

Yes, I hear you about threshold. I suppose I’ll try it out for a while and then, if it proves to be awful, it will be the first card out of the deck! I really like Impact Resonance so that will eventually find a place in the deck. Soul's Fire looks like great removal.

Also, I added in a Seeker of the Way last night in place of Illumination . So I’ll be trying out Cathar's Companion and Seeker. I’ll hopefully get a taste of how both will work.

Hah! I thought Cathar's Companion got lifelink! My bad! I still think Seeker’s better.

Shower of Coals is actually eight damage for 5 if it’s Thresholded, but that doesn’t seem likely. Problem is, to have threshold your grave needs to be stocked, and if all your pump spells are going back to your hand... what’s in the grave? Things opponents blew up? That’s relying on your opponents to be destroying permanents you control to have the threshold trigger. I recommend Impact Resonance or Soul's Fire take its place.
