hejtmane on War of the Spark: Spoilers ...

See that's my point none of them will be used in constructed because Shock , Lightning Strike , Banefire and Skewer the Critics are all better cards from other sets that embrace red and then there is a reason we see Fight with Fire and Lava Coil played even though the other cards exist because they help with more damage against bigger creatures nope nothing at all big fat hot garbage so if you are doing limited draft better splash black for removal because red is atrocious in war of sparks for getting rid of planeswalkers now they did get some really nice creatures I like but from a planeswalker removal all the prior sets have better tools by a mile and that is bad design imo

MurderForBrunch on War of the Spark Turn 5 Win

First of all, I like the concept of the deck, Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God seems like a super powerful card that will see a lot of play. However, there are two main problems I see with the deck. The first one is that the The Elderspell plan seems weak, in that, you're not guaranteed to find any Planeswalkers in the opposing board. Take the Azorius Weenie deck for instance, doesn't play any. So my first suggestion is to add more Planeswalkers to your own list. Stuff like Ral, Storm Conduit generates card selection, and works pretty well with removal spells. Or Teyo, the Shieldmage seems like a good early drop that helps a bunch against Aggro/Burn. Then you eat your own planeswalkers plus some on the other side, add a bunch of counters on your Bolas an win the game! Plus you get a bonus flavor win! haha

And what I said about Ral and Teyo brings me to the second problem. I think this deck would bound super hard to a fast Gruul or Mono-Red Aggro! It has a super powerful late game but it's slow. So I would recommend adding cheap efficient removal like Moment of Craving or Cast Down , or even Lightning Strike or Lava Coil . You could easily pass the turn with mana open having instant speed removal as protection. If you don't need it, draw cards with Chemister's Insight or Opt . All that would ensure the deck gets to the late game, where it shines.

As a final note, if you end up including more planeswalkers, specially some uncommon ones, something like Soul Diviner can be handy! Summarizing, I like the deck idea, I just thing it need a slight readjustment to survive better the early aggression. Anyway, have fun brewing! Cheers

I prefer The list with 3 Dire Fleet Daredevil and 2 Lava Coil (-1 Shock, no zhur ta) but that‘s a matter of Taste i think... worked well (3-1) Last friday... I will swap out The warbosses for 2x Banefire in Sideboard though.

Nice deck. I acquired one of these as well. So far have subbed Lava Coil out for Lightning Strike .

Can't wait to try it on FNM.

Funny thing is that I have a boar tribal deck that I've been messing around with on Arena. I exported the build from Arena for you to take a look at. Even what I run with can be inconsistent at times. I've tried to fix it with types of filter and card draws like Open the Gates , Warlord's Fury and Light Up the Stage . Instead of Rhythm of the Wild (Even though it is good), I use Cindervines as a control detterent.

I hope this can help you out with this gimmicky deck, it's a fun idea.

If you have the chance there are some cards that would fit great. Pteramander and Crackling Drake are great creatures in your deck. You probably also want to add some faster burn spells like Shock or Wizard's Lightning . Lava Coil is also feels a bit better than Command the Storm although it is sorcery speed.

If you're lacking in removal, use that red color! Lava Coil , Fight with Fire , Lightning Strike . :D

Although it would be hard to cast, many have looked at Goblin Chainwhirler with Bladebrand to board wipe. Not sure if it's for this deck but definitely possible. Also, for a control version of Rakdos, I would throw in some Duress , Divest , and Kitesail Freebooter for hand disruption. Lava Coil , Cast Down , Price of Fame , and Moment of Craving for removal. As for the long game "clock" part of your deck, I like the inheritance but you could also look at the kickers of Josu Vess, Lich Knight or Fight with Fire as late game finishers.
