Kessig Malcontents Discussion

I've thought about that. I was going to leave it up to my first real playtest before doing that. I mainly like it because it's a decent ping that will proc every turn with Norin the Wary and Splinter Twin drops as a way of dealing noncombat damage, which this deck lacks outside of that and Kessig Malcontents.
I've also toyed with the idea of adding one of the soul sisters because of the sheer number of creatures I'll be having, but have decided against it so far.

I really like Impact Tremors! Unruly Mob seems like an okay backup plan if I am forced to attack instead of waiting for big Kessig Malcontents. I knew that somebody would suggest Champion of the Parish, and I planned to use it, until I saw the cost of the card :(. I am not really sure if I want to spend so much on one card. I will think about it. Thanks for the suggestions.

This was definitely a deck when it was in Standard.
Sam Pardee wrote this article on Human Reanimator that's reminiscent of Oops! All Spells in Legacy.
Fiend Hunter + human sac outlet + Angel of Glory's Rise = infinite loop to do whatever nonsense you want. Burning-Tree Emissary/Wild Cantor for infinite mana? Huntmaster of the Fells Flip for infinite life and 2/2s? Death Cultist for the win?
I think the main shell of the deck is going to be:
Your win conditions are between:
Now that I think about it, I might have to build this deck myself...

This looks pretty fun to play. I tried making my human deck RW a few years ago because I really liked the idea of it. Looks like you've got this honed pretty well, but I figure it doesn't hurt to make suggestions.
- Thatcher Revolt isn't that great on its own, but would be awesome with Champion of the Parish and/or Thalia's Lieutenant. It would also have more value with either Mayor of Avabruck Flip or Monastery Swiftspear in play.
- Personally, I think Kessig Malcontents is one of those cards that looks dumb initially, but can be pretty mean in the right deck.
- Shrine of Burning Rage could get some counters pretty quick, especially with dashing Lightning Berserker. Nice way to finish off your opponent.
These all cost 3 mana though (Shrine's ability costs 3), so maybe they'd be too slow. I was going to suggest Grim Lavamancer, but I see you had one and removed it. Was it too slow to be worthwhile?

Cards you may want to add that and why
Angel of Jubilation good for your angel theme and also for your weenie theme
Angelic Purge all around decent to good removal which is extremely important in EDH
Blasphemous Act very good boardwipe
Cathars' Crusade MUST include for any weenie deck that has white
Divine Reckoning Another good boardwipe
Eerie Interlude is a maybe due to the fact that it can be used to avoid board wipes or force one sided boardwipes
Entreat the Angels straight up wincon
Fiend Hunter pretty much o-ring on a stick
Geist-Honored Monk great card for weenie strategy
Intangible Virtue could be very good with all the tokens you will be producing
Mikaeus, the Lunarch it fits the flavor very well by being the Lunarch and it fits the weenie theme
Silverblade Paladin could be amazing for your deck and can be used as a win con with gisela hitting for 20 commander damage.
Terminus potential board wipe
Thalia's Lieutenant works like champion with the upside of also hitting all you creature if you already have a lot of tokens or creatures
Cards that you may want to remove and why
Kessig Malcontents all around a meh card that just doesn't really meet par
Riot Ringleader again meh with not enough upside to justify putting it in the deck
Oppressive Rays great card in most causal formats but not really EDH
Vigilante Justice in reality it just doesn't do as much as you really want it to do and will be a dead card
Lightning Axe could be good but I think you can find better options
Thatcher Revolt could be good but in my opinion could be replaced with a stronger card

Thank you for the feedback, . At times, I fall in love with a combo, even it doesn't make a lot of sense, hence the inclusion of Kessig Malcontents, but I think you're right; I will cut it. Any additional suggestions? Thanks again.

the Kessig Malcontents, while being powerful doesn't do justice being the only red card. things you can do to fix this: add more red cards like Lightning Bolt and add the full playset of Kessig Malcontents. cut red entirely, you don't need it in this deck.
