Suns_Champion on OH LORD JESUS IT'S A FIRE! | Neheb EDH

TrueLycan Thanks for the comment! I went over my reasoning for the lack of X-spells in the primer, but for Fireball specifically, here's why I don't include it: It's horrible.

let's say I have 4 opponents. I deal 6 damage to each of them in my first main phase, so in my second main phase I get 24 mana. That's a pretty good haul. So now I go to cast Fireball, hoping to kill all of my opponents with this one massive blaze. One is used for the red cost of fireball, I target an opponent, then spend to target my other three opponents. So X=20, and that gets divided evenly by 4, which is 5, so in the end I just spend 24 mana to deal 5 damage to each opponent. Compare to Flame Rift and Inferno, and fireball is laughably bad. Sure I could kill just one opponent, but that's not the point or the goal of the deck.

Hope that clears it up!

Low-key_loki Thanks for the upvote :)

Star of Extinction does sound super awesome with Furnace of Rath or something out and I do like the targeted land destruction. I'm not gonna write off Inferno yet because it's still my jam 20-something years later. I have killed people with it before.

I'll make space for it.

Megalomania thanks again! I'll have a look!

shiki1335 Thanks for the comment!

Obsidian Battle-Axe I like because it gives Neheb haste, extra power, and that 1 extra toughness that lets him survive stuff like Inferno and Bloodfire Colossus. Mask of Memory is good and I'll consider it.

Inferno. Hmmmm. Fanning the Flames might be a good replacement.

Akroma's Memorial is just too good in my meta and too easy to cast with Neheb. Sphinx-Bone Wand doesn't do enough soon enough.

I'll also consider Seething Song.

Thanks all!

I'm just hoping her overall attitude hasn't changed much as she's aged. See, for example, her flavor text on Simian Spirit Guide, Sizzle, Pyrokinesis, and Inferno.

A few staples I would personally add to the deck: Spell Burst, Tezzeret's Gambit, Reiterate, and Capsize

Also, you could upgrade your x-burn spells with Comet Storm and Fall of the Titans and trade Inferno/Fire Tempest for something likeRolling Earthquake/Earthquake/Fault Line/Molten Disaster ect. (does that same thing but better/more flexible)

If you are looking for stuff to take out I would start with Sun Droplet (seems real slow and super bad at what it does) Bosium Strip (would rather just draw cards instead of taxing myself 3 mana, this deck probably won't be casting more than 1 spell of the strip per turn at best) Lightning Bolt/Lightning Strike/Volt Charge (not a lot of impact in EDH, 3 damage just isn't that much) Searing Flesh (for similar reasons just put in another x-burn spell) Spellbook (you don't seem to be drawing that many cards) Mind's Desire (storm count would be really low most of the time since copying doesn't count towards storm count)

Bezter on Will Platinum Angel save me?

shinobigarth no see that's what I'm asking. What if the angel and Thief would take lethal damage too, like from Inferno? That's the not obvious part. Sorry if that wasn't clear. If myself, all my opponents, and the Angel are all taking lethal damage, do I live and the angel/opponents die?

Bezter on Will Platinum Angel save me?

Hello all! Question:

I have a Platinum Angel on the board. Each player is at 5 life or less.

I cast Inferno in an attempt to kill all of my opponents, myself, all creatures, and win the game. Will the Angel save me?

Same question with Fortune Thief, does she work out for me too? Thanks in advance!

I know adding in more cards detracts from the balance and focus you have set up, but there were some cards that popped into my head I thought might be worth considering:
Past in Flames
Reckless Abandon
Shock or Lava Axe
Fire Servant
Howling Mine or Font of Mythos or Horn of Greed
and maybe to cycle things through Teferi's Puzzle Box, though that could be good or bad
How is the deck running with 21 lands? I'd be worried about discarding them to the point you can get off what you have in hand before you cycle through again. Too bad there's no red version of Splendid Reclamation
