Lightning Bolt Discussion

If I'm going to toss any red ping spells into the mix, I figure I would be better off going with the Magma Jet vs the Lightning Bolt. One less point of damage, but scry 2.

Wouldn't bring it in against Delver. They have literally only Lightning Bolt and maybe Pillar of Flame.

Leyline of Sanctity never hurt anyone against a heap of Lightning Bolts and burn spells.

hanzul6293 on No Mercy (Grixis Cruel Control)

I'm already pretty much building what blouin48 has suggested with snapcasters, liliana and what not and I wanted to say you shouldn't be scared of how slow some cards may be like Cruel Ultimatum (which I'm using). Control decks like that are completely viable. Of course there's fast decks like RDW, affinity, jeskai combo that win as early as turn 2-3. The point of it is to disrupt their gameplan with Thoughtseize Inquisition of Kozilek Lightning Bolt Liliana of the Veil to be able to play the cards you want. Also in that deck Cruel Ultimatum is not the only win condition. Run Keranos, God of Storms. That alone is a win con. You're Creeping Tar Pit, Snapcaster Mage. The whole deck is the win condition lol. And the side board is for your answers, Counterflux , Anger of the Gods (which you could get away with main board) Surgical Extraction. I think a lot of people don't play modern because they are intimidated by how quickly some decks win. But they are easy to disrupt, and possibly beat with the right cards. Now I'm not saying you have to play that deck. From what I can see you prefer creatures, which is fine. I just didn't want you to think that was your only option. Modern is fun because it's not the same boring deck ( mono black devotion) running the format for months on end. There are tons of deck ideas with the potential to just run over everything . My friend actually just made a combo deck that can win turn 3. Anyways sorry for ranting. I'll definitly try to look up thinks that can help you with the direction you're going. Good luck !

Not really sure what your budget is but I would really recommend switching out those guildgates for shock lands asap. In Modern, many of the popular decks can win buy turn 3-5. Those guildgates can REALLY slow you down. I would also recommend switching out those 4 Searing Spear for 4 Lightning Bolt. It essentially does the same thing for a cheaper cost. Also, Flametongue Kavu is not legal in Modern.

If you want, check out my Jund Midrange deck here: Bring Me Back To My Former Glory. (HELP PLEASE)

Add some really strong dragons such as Stormbreath Dragon and Thundermaw Hellkite with some more Utvara Hellkites for your creature base, the run hand hate and burn for additional damage and control. This will give you much better chances at winning. As far as hand hate, do Blightning, Duress, and maybe even Pain/Suffering. Burn with Lightning Bolt, Rakdos's Return, and Crater's Claws. Other than that, i suggest cutting out green and adding maybe a few more dragons like Steel Hellkite or Scourge of Valkas. You want to run about 3 or 4 of all of the above named cards because you will be far more likely to draw them, and they are what will win you the game. Good luck!

Lightning Bolt instead of searing spear

So, I was thinking today, now wizards apparently thinks Lightning Bolt is too strong for a reprint. But, is there another effect for burn as powerful that could get printed? I know they don't like "free" cards anymore, but I was thinking of something along the lines of.

Unoriginal Name Here

"Unoriginal Name Here" deals three damage to target creature or player. Deal three damage to yourself.


Too busted? Probably. Well, definitely since it could go into any deck. Maybe if it said something along the lines of you can only play _ if you control a mountain. Anyways though, what are some other burn spells along the power level of Lightning Bolt that could possibly be printed? I'm just dreaming of a world where Lightning Strike isn't the best we have to hope for.
