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.

Zarathoustra on Rift Bolt and Insult

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.

Rift Bolt is the best burn spell you can play in this deck, even better than Lightning Bolt. Insult requires 3 mana, so you can't play many spells after that. To maximize the damage you want to cast as many cheap spells as you can when it's on... and suspended Rift Bolts are cast for free !

With Guttersnipe in play, Insult deals 4 damage by itself, and suspended Rift Bolts 10 each. So if you are well prepared, you can play Insult+Rift Bolt+Rift Bolt+Lightning Bolt for 4 mana... and 34 damage (16 from Guttersnipe, 18 from bolts).

Kiln Fiend also benefits from free extra spells, in that specific case it would get +12/0, and still deal double damage... all this with 4 mana.

Keep Rift Bolt, run 4 of them !
