I feel like Chandra would date Koth of the Hammer before she would date Tibalt, but that's just me

Playing lands like Raging Ravine might benefit you. If it dies, it triggers Omnath. Then you can play it from the graveyard via your Ramunap Excavator or Crucible of Worlds. Wakeroot Elemental? Liege of the Tangle? War Elemental? Vastwood Zendikon? Koth of the Hammer looks interesting.

I think you can cut some of the following cards for more lands.

Aurification since if it gets blown up then the counters it put in don’t really do that much.

Oath of Chandra is good for flavor, but really wont do all that much.

Ajani Steadfast should be cut since you really don’t have that many creatures for his plus to be put to work.

Fumiko the Lowblood since she won’t be that great for a creature.

I think you can cut Time Wipe since you have an abundance of board wipes.

Deafening Silence really seems like it will put you in a bind just as often as your opponents.

Koth of the Hammer isn’t that great since you aren’t running that many mountains.

Gideon's Avenger isn’t a really great creature since he can still be blocked by a 1/1 and everything would be fine.

Elesh Norn's Kremlin

Legendary Land

~ enters the battlefield tapped unless you control a plains, an island, a swamp, a forest and a creature with infect.

: Add , , or .

, : Destroy target permanent if it is red and/or an artifact.

"The Mirran you harbor are a threat to us all, Urabrask. Release them to me, they must be sutured into the Orthodoxy. Only then can we bring the glory of Phyrexia to other worlds. What say you?"

-Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite to Urabrask the Hidden.

I've always loved Elesh Norn. Her art, her card text, her style, her... evilness.

If you're unfamiliar with the story of New Phyrexia, basically the phyrexians turn Mirrodin into New Phyrexia. There are 5 phyrexian praeters who rule the plane now, and Elesh is the strongest of these praetors. She comes to be the dominant force on New Phyrexia. The only praetor who still kinda resists her is Urabrask. Urabrask is kind of indifferent to the Mirran survivors and lets some (including Koth of the Hammer i think?) to take refuge in his area, the Great Furnace of New Phyrexia.

I'm imagining this card depicts Elesh solidifying her power, building an enormous fortress (kremlin) and confronting Urabrask about these Mirran refugees. Elesh would want Urabrask to prove his loyalty to her by offering up the Mirrans to be sutured into the Machine Orthodoxy. Would Urabrask willingly offer the survivors up? I don't know...

I'd like something Phyrexian. ANYTHING phyrexian. Perhaps a new Elesh Norn?

Dave-writer90, not gonna lie, I'm a bit jealous of your mana-producing package, haha! That Mana Crypt in particular.

One idea I had when looking at your deck is this: Since you are trying to fuel the big "pay X" burn spells, maybe Koth of the Hammer might come in handy? The +1 lets you tap one land twice or use it as, effectively a 6 dmg beater, while the -2 doubles your available mana.

I think of Seasoned Pyromancer as filtering, not card advantage. I may have been a little too strong when pushing for card advantage (I value it way too highly) as this deck can often build up early board presence, wrath, or get a Blood Moon down and then win instead of playing the long game. You also may not need dedicated card advantage cards if the game does go long given your planeswalkers, Blood Moon, and especially Scrying Sheets.

I didn't know Yidaro, Wandering Monster existed and now I'm in love with it, so thank you for that, but I'm not sure it fits well within the deck given it's so slow. I think Koth of the Hammer is a scary, scary threat, but it's a tad expensive and not great against creatures. Against control, maybe Goblin Rabblemaster as a fast clock that leaves multiple bodies.

Ok, your deck looks much more sensible than the one I saw. I don't like Fatal Push as you have tons of more versatile removal that will also kill anything it could. I also don't understand Torment of Hailfire, but if it works then it works. I think Eternal Scourge, Bloodghast, a phoenix, or Goblin Rabblemaster would be better than Walking Ballista as you've got all the removal you'll need. Also disappointed there's no Koth of the Hammer, but understand the reasoning. There's no great card advantage, but it's up to you and testing to see if you have time to play card advantage spells (Phyrexian Arena for example) or if you even need them.

The avg cmc seems a bit high, although you might not be able to do much about that. Koth of the Hammer seems a bit weak since you don’t have a lot of mountains. I would try to add Karn Liberated and Karn, Scion of Urza to help with colored mana issues. Lands that can double as ramp, as effectively as they can, like Ancient Tomb and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx should be added. Cabal Coffers can also be very good but you would likely want to run more swamps and black planeswalkers to take advantage of that more, otherwise you are relying on urborg only, and that’s certainly not effective enough here. I would recommend utility lands also, like Strip Mine and Maze of Ith but there’s the color issue, and maze isn’t a land without urborg.
