Insult

Sorcery

Damage can't be prevented this turn. If a source you control would deal damage this turn, it deals double that damage instead.

I did get to try it out, but not as much as I'd like. Busy, busy, busy... The few games I have had have been hit or miss. While people don't expect the punishment neheb can deal out, once they know, you (and him) become targets. I've been able to crush the table a few times, make a draw here and there, and lost a few. I've also changed quite a few things from other neheb player's suggestions.

Stuffy Doll to hate a specific player, Combustible Gearhulk big guy with draw or damage, Fire Servant more ouch, Thermo-Alchemist Not sure what to think yet, seems decent, Insult quick doubling damage and some prevention prevention, Magebane Armor makes neheb a bigger tank and avoids your own hate-everything spells, Doubling Cube redonk. I had 100+ mana with it out, Caged Sun eh, chopping block. Kinda helpful but also expensive. Flamekin Village and Hanweir Battlements haste in a pinch, since I can't afford the crazy haste land from kamigawa, Smoldering Crater and some other cyclers for helpful draws later on in the game.

I ended up not using godo or the other card, since I came to the same conclusions you did with them. I also dropped aggravated assault after I hit a table with infinite neheb turns and felt yucky afterwards, haha. All in all, it's been very fun, and I'm still eager for lots more testing when the time of year where everyone isn't busy rolls around again. I also made your firesong and sunspeaker deck but have had zero plays with real people yet, so there's something to look forward to as well. Thanks for responding and I hope to see some update love for these decks in the future with new sets. /wall of text

I don't want to play the "usual" burn deck, that's the point. Insult allows insane damage and potential one-shots.

xaerusblade: because Insult doubles damage from ALL sources for the turn. this includes any additional burn spells beyond the Rift Bolt, as well as combat damage. so it can easily surpass the damage output of a Skullcrack

I've got some news. Sorry for the three comments but you might be interested.

You can't play Insult before you cast suspended Rift Bolt. But you can sacrifice Quest for Pure Flame at any time !

Insult is a sorcery. You cannot cast sorceries outside of your main phase, when the stack is empty. Casting a rift bolt coming off suspend is done earlier in a turn, during the upkeep. So, no, it is not possible without other effects to cast Rift Bolt after Insult.

From a deckbuilding standpoint, you can use Quest for Pure Flame instead. Sure you have to deal damage four times to an opponent before you can use it, but this is the only way I know to double the damage at instant speed, which is what you need.

You can use Quicken to make sure Insult gets cast first

My whole burn deck was based on the idea to suspend Rift Bolts, then play Insult on the next turn before removing time counter from it and cast the spell in order to double the damage. Or even remove the counter but play Insult first.

Is it possible to do so ? Someone told me you have to cast Rift Bolt first, before you play anything else. That would make me sad.

Please tell me he's wrong...

Zarathoustra I don't think Insult and Rift Bolt work like that. You have to cast Rift Bolt during your upkeep, before you can cast Insult, as it's a sorcery.
