Insolent Neonate Discussion

I’m not sold on Supplier over Insolent Neonate. You have no way of killing it to trigger the second mill other than chumping with it which might be hard to achive in some matchups. Neonate seems much faster imo.

Scourge Devil also seem underwhelming to me. I belive Rally the Peasants or Driven / Despair is a better option.

I’ve been experimenting with The Flame of Keld in my dredge deck. At the early stages of playtesting it has wirked better than expected. Check out Flaming Dredge

DragonHaiku thank you for the suggestion, however I am a little concern about getting rid Recover because as this deck is rather low on lands I will often discard my four mana cards with Insolent Neonate and get back them back with Recover, or inversely get the Insolent Neonate back and a new card to discard to it. Regarding Undying Evil I don't have any consistent ways to sacrifice when I want, so I can't really draw this and then be able to use it to full effect.

Araignee thank you for the suggest, I will definitely consider and likely will swap the Read the Bones with Altar's Reap.

You'll probably get more value from Undying Evil over Recover; in particular, the synergy it has with Ingot Chewer, Augur of Skulls, Insolent Neonate, Kathari Bomber, and echo card mechanics. Undying procs on any death, including sacrifices. It's an incredible combo card. Also, Unearth for consideration as well.

*Doesn't cost mana for the discard effect in the same turn you get to discard the card - like Insolent Neonate.

You should run something beside Street Wraith, it can be anything that discards cards and doesn't cost mana. (Of course the heaper it is the better)

Since the sacrificing Insolent Neonate is a cost for both its own ability and for Fiery Temper, and you can't respond to paying costs, it means that you can either have the 3 mana, or the loot effect but not both. Which wasn't much of an issue in my deck, since depending on the situation one of the two lines of play is always much better. (For example if you have a demigod in grave, you will cast a second on for the mana, and not attempt to play a single free Hollow Onesj instead, on the other hand if you have multiple hollow ones in hand, and only a single demigod in hand (none in the grave) you should just discard it, and hope to draw a second copy for value - of course the opponent's deck should be also considered, since pathing hollow ones often leads to early demigods... etc.)

Unless you plan to have support for your more demanding (in terms of deck building) cards, there is not much point in running them. If you want to use Bedlam Reveler you will need a LOT of instant sorceries (at the price of having fewer creatures), if you want to play demigod you need some sort of ramp, which can be had in many ways, Vessel of Volatility is just as great as Infernal Plunge - i gone for the latter, since it allows me to usee my mana more efficiently in early turns & i already have enough cheap creatures to make it reliable, as i opted to use Insolent Neonate as one of my additional discard effects.

The more loot effets you run, the faster/easier you can find your land drops - thus you can afford to run fewer lands, i am at the lowest possible number (with my "15,5"), but running only 18 should be fine, without additional mana sources in this kind of deck.

In my humble opinion the things that you can improve in this deck are the following:

  • Both Faithless Looting & Cathartic Reunion only allows you to discard 2 cards, hence they need a second preferrably free discard outlet to make hollow one free - to enable those crazy multiple hollow one early turns. You need to run something beside the 4x Street Wraith, and there are options, Insolent Neonate - that can act as an evasive creatureee, Faerie Macabre - can act as additional grave hate (, there is also Edge of Autumn but that card is bad for a deck that attempts to play Demigod of Revenge without mana acceleration).

  • Demigod of Revenge is too slow - in the sense that games can easily end before you could cast it of naturally played lands - i solved this problem in my deck with cards like Infernal Plunge. There are likely other solutions, but you should keep in mind that this is a problem.

  • Bedlam Reveler is as good as many instants/sorceries you run in your deck, hence it is a LOT worse here than in mardu pyromancer.
