Kari Zev's Expertise Discussion

Phyrexia on People Hate My Names So Whatever *5-1 FNM*

Snydog17, yeah, sorry the current decklist is a few days old, I'm going to update it next tournament I play. I got a 4th Scrapheap scrounger with the winnings from last time, as well as a few other odds and ends.

Only reason I'm not running more Forerunner of Slaughter is because my local store ran out, and I have yet to resolve him in a single game so far. I believe he's a good play in this deck, he has seemingly good synergy with Scrapheap Scrounger. And yeah, I agree Noxious Gearhulk would be a better fit for this deck than Gonti, Lord of Luxury sideboard wise. Gonti is rad, but not really that good in this shell.

My current plan is to MB: +1 Forerunner of Slaughter, +1 Olivia, Mobilized for War, -2 Reckless Bushwhacker.

SB: -1 Kari Zev's Expertise, -1 Gonti, Lord of Luxury, -1 Incendiary Flow, +2 Lost Legacy, +1 Noxious Gearhulk

Honestly dynavolt tower is too slow for a red burn deck. i would put Lathnu Hellion because it is such a good aggro card, but if dont want anymore creatures because this is a burn deck than i would say put in Hungry Flames or Kari Zev's Expertise

FNM 3-24-17 went 2-1-1, literally would've been 3-0-1 if I had 1 extra turn during Round 1, but oy vey. Kari Zev's Expertise did a lot of work this weekend and Lightning Runner sat on the sideboard all evening. Only deck I had an issue with was a W/B Artifact

Hey, I like the deck idea.

Just a few suggestions:instead of Turn Against, which costs 5, there are plenty of "gain control until end of turn" options. My favs are Kari Zev's Expertise (although it is less impactful in EDH), Grab the Reins, and Act of Aggression.

Instead of vigilante of justice, i'd add in more ramp/draw in the form of Solemn Simulacrum

Kari Zev, Skyship Raider has synergy with your general (although she is probably more for fun than function)

good luck!

Interesting thing to note. Depending on how these cards are defined, we could do crazy things with them and the Expertise cards. If they count as 1 card with 2 converted mana costs, then this possibility opens up to us. A consequence card has a top half with 6 cmc and a bottom half with 2 cmc. Cast Kari Zev's Expertise, cast top half with Kari Zev's, as it's a card with 2 cmc. Or we could even have a scenario where top half costs 3, bottom half costs 6 and we can cast bottom half off of Goblin Dark-Dwellers

Lol. I'm curious how consequence cards work with the Expertise cycle. Like, what if a consequence costs 2 cmc while the top half costs 3? Can we cast the top half with Kari Zev's Expertise?

Kari Zev's Expertise is badass, I suggest picking up a copy for this deck. Nice deck.
