Keldon Marauders Discussion

rothgar13 on Burn to Death

Chandra is far too slow for a Burn deck the way we think of it in Modern. X-spells are also really bad. You need more creatures for repeatable sources of damage, and more Bolt-like spells. The best creatures available are Eidolon of the Great Revel and Goblin Guide, though I recognize they are expensive. Keldon Marauders and Hellspark Elemental will be a decent place to get started if you're on a budget. I'd also take a look at Searing Spear and Shard Volley for similar budget considerations.

Things I'm consideringEchoing Truth instead of Into the Roil I don't think the deck needs its bounce spell to cantrip, and Echoing Truth would help a ton against token strategies.

Mana Leak has been underperforming. It's useful the first few turns, but it is useless for protecting a lead late game. Maybe replace with some combination of Essence Scatter, Dissolve, and Deprive or Familiar's Ruse

Pyroclasm is terrible against burn, (Monastery Swiftspear, Keldon Marauders, Thermo-Alchemist) and bad against Black Devotion (Vampire Nighthawk, Gifted Aetherborn, Gray Merchant of Asphodel). Maybe some sort of split with Firespout?

DECKMAGE101 Possibly. The main benefit of Keldon Marauders is that it deals damage even if the opponent controls a creature. Kiln Fiend is probably only good if your opponent has no blockers. I honestly don't know which is better. Kiln Fiend has the potential to deal more damage, but I think it will deal damage less consistently than Keldon Marauders

Kiln Fiend might be better than Keldon Marauders in this type of deck

I know Keldon Marauders has a rare "leaves the battlefield" clause, instead of "dies". Its ability will trigger when you Worldfire, and kill the opponent.

It's nice to see another casual Burn player. I've got a casual Burn deck that runs great if you decide to take a look at it. I've also got some suggestions.

First, I'd drop down to 20 mountains. Typically you won't want more than that if you're looking for speed. I'd also drop the Grim Lavamancers as they are going to be too slow without any expensive fetchlands in your deck.

Some cards to consider would be: Thermo-Alchemist, Monastery Swiftspear, Hellspark Elemental, Keldon Marauders, Sulfuric Vortex, Flame Rift, Exquisite Firecraft, Breaking Point, Skullcrack, Needle Drop, Magma Jet, Curse of the Pierced Heart, Flames of the Blood Hand, Volcanic Fallout, Price of Progress, and finally, my favorite red card, Fireblast.

Think about what decks your friends are playing and which cards you like best then go burn face.

There are a number of cheap, effective red kards Keldon Marauders has fallen out of favour, but is a 2 mana lava axe when it works. Nivmagus Elemental is cheap and provides limited counterspell protection and the oppertunity for combo finishes with Temur Battle Rage. Sin Prodder is dirt cheap and very effective, even without cheap delve.

With super budget the lack of lightning bolt hurts red, and lack of boros charm red white so janky combo is usually the most functional option. Board flooding with Mogg War Marshal, Foundry Street Denizen Dragon Fodder Battle Hymn Dragonrage Akroan Crusader Empty the Warrens, Haze of Rage and so forth to spam out a win. Guttersnipe used to be good but has fallen to more efficient options, leaving him pretty cheap.

Human tribal with Keldon Marauders/Thatcher Revolt/Kessig Malcontents is functional, especially with Gather the Townsfolk and Dearly Departed/Cathartic Reunion. For the non-$10 version there are some very competitive lists out there, but there are a lot of cards in modern that aren't valuable because they just aren't in short supply but are still super good.

With the fetchlands in modern and other activated abilities Harsh Mentor acts like extra copies of Eidolon of the Great Revel. At the very least I think it's better than Keldon Marauders and probably Grim Lavamancer because you're not running fetches. If you are interested in Harsh Mentor I would recommend you wait a while until it's price inevitably drops.
