Infernal Reckoning Discussion

Essentially every story involves some sort of global war.
On Amonkhet, it was nearly a civil war between the citizens as they endured the Trials, but it inevitably turned into a literal war between the Gods and between the survivors and the Eternal.
On Kaladesh, the citizens and their ideas against the Consulate.
Pre-Coldsnap: Brother's War
Alara? Shards and their splitting and merging
Tarkir? Dragons and Clans
Innistrad? Well, original Innistrad I don't know much about but I know there was a heavy theme with scientific advancement in the form of Necromancy and wars against what appeared to be Humans and Angels. The second time around: People and Vampires against Nahiri and Eldrazi
So with regards to Zendikar, the wars involved were basically between the plane itself and the Eldrazi - with emphasis on literal global genocide, as opposed to just the genocide of a particular species.
Interestingly enough, it appears the context of some flavor text in both M19 and UMA hints toward a return to Zendikar, possibly with Ob Nixilis as the main antagonist.
I say this because the flavor text of Infernal Reckoning seems to elude toward this particular Demon seeking to take control of Zendikar. Recall that Ob Nixilis Reignited became trapped on Zendikar and vowed to make a swath of war and death to reignite his spark to escape. I believe he actually did, but that may not have stopped him from his rampage.
So, something is actively hunting down Eldrazi to claim Zendikar as it's own - and I personally believe Wizard's is hinting at Ob Nixilis' return :)

They are relatively equal splitted between the colors as I open mostly crap from packs like Infernal Reckoning. :-)

I would remove Eidolon of Blossoms personally because of its rather high CMC compared to other alternatives, like Satyr Enchanter (tho there are probably better picks for card draw/life gain off enchantments) Also some other potential sideboard material would be Damping Sphere & Infernal Reckoning to possibly help with colorless matchups.

A few changes I would suggest to improve your win ratio would be to drop the flood the board game plan and instead keep your resilient creatures like Pack Rat and Geralf's Messenger while replacing the rest with interaction such as removal like Fatal Push. this will allow you to play a more controlling approach and build a sticky board state until you can capitolize on landing a Gary.

dbpunk: Very true, the point of making the cards would be to make it more viable. Like a burn commander making Lightning Bolt target each opponent instead of a single one. (Wont let it copy when targeting creatures). Not essentially the entire standard/modern/legacy deck strategy, more like taking the theme of a given archetype and making it possible in commander (Adjusting cards to work in multiplayer). There are lots of people who loves burn, but it is very hard making it viable in a semi-powered meta.
You have some very good points, and no, Tarmogoyf and Goblin Guide will probably never see any real play in EDH as they are combat focused, but that is only good as it wont increase the price of the already expensive cards :)
It might be a way to ambitious project i have begun experimentning with, but i have some high hopes and like the creative aspect of it. Success or failure, either way i have fun :)
These themes are quite specific, looking for things more like: Burn, Control, Infect :)

Keeping the demon subtheme I would suggest: Ammit Eternal, Baleful Ammit, Archfiend of Despair, Demon of Catastrophes, Demon of Dark Schemes, Demon of Wailing Agonies, Harvester of Souls, Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis, Reiver Demon
I would remove: Buried Alive (don't see strong graveyard recursion), Temporal Extortion/Dash Hopes (bc if its that important to your opponents they will pay the life), Grinning Demon/Minion of Leshrac (no upside), Gloom/Infernal Reckoning(unless this is a meta choice but its too situational), Sanguine Bond (do you gain that much life to be relevant?), Death's Approach (for hard removal) and Without Weakness

Got a promo Vivien Reid, which was sweet. Ended up R/G with a slight black splash. I decided blue and black weren’t deep enough as a main color, and red was deepest. Green beat out white mainly because of Vivien and Runic Armasaur.
Went 2-2. Deck was strong, but slow. Could easily go over the top of other slower decks, but stugled against faster clocks.
Nothing special in the 2 prize packs.
Wasn’t super hyped for the set because of all the constructed hate cards. So naturally, they were half my rares (Infernal Reckoning, Amulet of Safekeeping, Detection Tower). If I’m going to get an unplayable rare for limited, at least make it something I might actually use, like Scapeshift or Crucible of Worlds
