Kiln Fiend Discussion

Tethys on What Thing In The Ice?

2 days ago

I recently finished my post-Amknkhet UR Aggro deck (after trying out a LOT of different potential strategies). The Kiln Fiends are finally gone, and this new strategy is much stronger in the current meta then my previous build was. Let me know what you think!

Gut Shot? Triggers prowess on your Swiftspear and +3 attack for your Kiln Fiend and clears tokens out of the way.

Maybe Apostle's Blessing in the sideboard for control decks that have early removal?

I second Kiln Fiend, simply on of best creatures in this type of strat. I'd consider going into blue, you get some cantrips like Serum Visions and bounce spells for tempo swings like Vapor Snag which are very handy. Also lets you play Thing in the Ice  Flip if you like. Bedlam Reveler seems like an all-star to refresh your hand as well if the game starts to go a little long for you.

I wouldn't really call this burn. It's closer to a voltron style deck. Have you considered Kiln Fiend?

ellie-is on Ellie's Saproling Army

Made some biggish changes to how the deck works. Removed cards that were slow and/or didn't often help me win the game, or whose synergies too rarely came up. Added some new ones.

Echoing Courage: Good finisher and also saves my saprolings from Pyroclasm.
Fresh Meat: Hilarious response to board wipes. "Oh, yeah, I just lost all my saprolings. Too bad I gained an equal amount of 3/3 beasts". Also good for big defenses.
Quest for Renewal: Should go great with Sprout Swarm and Scatter the Seeds, since I can now use them twice as often. Sadly only one in play can ever be relevant, so I gotta hope I don't draw both (unlike Beastmaster Ascension - which is cumulative!)
Ghost Quarters, because every competitive deck seems to have a ridiculous number of overpowered nonbasic lands. So, at least I can deal with them now.

And on my sideboard, Fogs specifically for dealing with Kiln Fiends protected by Apostle's Blessing. Wrap in Vigor will be replaced by Heroic Intervention whenever that thing's price drops.

Wurmlover on Boros burn

1 week ago

that plan is hinging on boros reckoner. if you don't have it out, the card is dead. and even still, the opponent can take 13, but then boros reckoner is dead. I've had modern games where I won at 3 or 4 life before, I just don't think its worth it. Normal boros burn is much faster/resilient. maybe try Kiln Fiend?

lagotripha on Robo-demons (budget)

Interesting idea, Salvage Slasher and Kiln Fiend play into the strategy fairly neatly, though I'd want to run a lot more 1-drops like Terrarion I can understant the budget issues with the other cards that do that. Mostly, I'd want more early game to fuel that improvise, things like Animation Module, Genesis Chamber, Myr Sire etc. You're running pretty high on the curve for modern, even with improvise speeding things up, so maindeck Golden Urn, Bottle Gnomes, Filigree Familiar, Golem's Heart, Profane Memento, Sun Droplet and Claws of Gix are all worth considering just to keep you in the game.

SirOrionDrake on Experimental Rush

Oh, ok Samuel-Frederick, I used the Geists on an earlier version of my deck, and they where a fine thing to have in the long run. Nowadays I'm using only Kiln Fiend, Nivix Cyclops and Wee Dragonauts. It is working just fine with this setting.
