Have you considered Lava Spike and Skewer the Critics ? Searing Blaze might be a good addition as well.

i think you should keep one of them, then maybe cut one for an Electrolyze , and another for a cheaper spell like Forked Bolt , Vapor Snag or another Spell Pierce

I think it's fine to keep the remaining two Lava Spike s.

Kjartan Thanks for the advice! I’m thinking 2x Burst Lightning (that would bring me up to 4) could cover 2x Lava Spike , do you have any suggestions on what I could replace the 3x Risk Factor with? Lightning Strike would work, but I’m sure I could find something better. For the other 2x Lava Spike , I am on the fence. Maybe Abrade , or some other multi-use spell would work well. Any thoughts on that?

The (ISD) at the end of my delvers worked! Thank you so much, it was a pain seeing it foiled.

First of all, what's your budget?

Then, since you want to go really fast, making big as soon as possible your creatures and dealing tons of damages immediately, why don't you consider Kiln Fiend or Monastery Swiftspear ?

Then, other "must have in this type of deck", in my opinion are: Mutagenic Growth (who cares if you lose 2, your creature gets bigger) and Apostle's Blessing

Now, cards I personally don't like in this deck:

Some cards I'd consider, but are not budget: shock and fetch lands, Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek , Blood Moon (in sideboard)

Not a fan of 4x Lava Spike and a whole 3x Risk Factor , as I believe that the anility to use your burn on both the opponents face, and their creatures, is a key factor for tempo decks.

Your delvers comes up as foil because the most recent printing of it only exists in foil. If you write (ISD) at the end of your delvers in the editer, you should get the original non-foil version.

Otherwise nice :)

SynergyBuild on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

n0bunga also, I am glad we got that all cleared up. It is a powerful effect on a land, but doesn't have good utility outside of some 1-4 decks, of which Gitrog is the tier 1 list that can use it, Prossh at tier 2, and Muldrotha/Windgrace at tier 3. That is about it that I could argue should run the Beacon, and Prossh runs it as a flex slot. Soren841 just has a different definition of 'good' or 'bad' cards than you. I don't know I am comfortable defining those terms at all.

I think a card like Dosan the Falling Leaf is good, but it is a worse Grand Abolisher in a color with all-stars like Autumn's Veil or the super-interesting rules-implications of City of Solitude , but in Sisay it can be a great fetchable target. Same in Prime Speaker Vannifar or even some Yisan lists, while many don't run it due to it's reliance on instant-speed interaction, despite most being ability based.

But, with such few inclusions, is it a bad card? It isn't a staple, but because of its use at all in cEDH, in comparison to cards like Lava Spike , staples in formats like modern, I could easily argue it to be a good EDH card. Command Beacon I find falls into the category of Dosan, not a staple, useful in a few decks in EDH, but not at all in other formats, for more obvious reasons nonetheless.

I think this makes it pretty meh, but a card that should always be kept in mind for land-based EDH decks and decks that plan to recast commanders.

Mm yeah i can imagine how this deck is very "you" ;)

You shouldnt run 4 drops while playing only 19 lands. And you really need red mana to cast your spells so i wouldnt play sunschorched desert.

Lastly two mana for two damage is horrible in burn. Two or one mana for three is much more convenient.

You should play 4 Lava Spike and Skullcrack
