Lightning Mauler Discussion

Apcooper32 on Mairsil, the Uber Villain

@LordMithos you are absolutely correct! I just didnt remember to write in the fact that you need the way to get haste. Usually when I play the deck and cast Buried Alive or Entomb, the first creature I grab is Anger. That is also one of the reasons Lightning Mauler is good in this deck above Crimson Mage for that combo.

Glad you like it!

Thank you Kizmetto, so 4x Mayor?
Testing the deck, with Collected Company, if I reveal Lightning Mauler with Voltaic Brawler (or Honored Crop-Captain), I attack for 6 damage. Instead, with Mayor I attack for 4 damage.
I'll try the Mayor, if the attack will be better I'll add! Thank you.
Have you play this deck?

Hi. I'll comment assuming this is not meant to be a standard legal deck.

Me and my friend came back to magic in the first innistrad block as a form of gathering again. We established some rules: each one choses a pre-constructed deck from the innistrad block and we could buy 2-3 booster por month and only use those cards to build our decks and we could only trade with each other. That aside, I choose the WR agressive humans deck and my all-star card was (4 copies, of course) Brimstone Volley.

The deck objective was to aggro early on and put my friend down to 10 life or less. After that it was pretty easy to close the games since I would have 3-4 week creatures and they would have 1-2 bigger ones, allowing me to attack with all and putting them in the spot where they needed to block but knew I would have Brimstone Volley with morbid online! (I actually won a game dealing 13 damage with 3 Volleys. Wasn't 15 because I didn't need the morbid in the last one :P)

If you manage to have tons of humans, then Champion of the Parish is your men. Boros Elite, Wojek Halberdiers, Ash Zealot, Thalia's Lieutenant, Stormblood Berserker, Glory-Bound Initiate, Unruly Mob, Lightning Mauler, Silverblade Paladin, Nearheath Pilgrim.

No blocks: Ahn-Crop Crasher is awesome and I see you already listed him. Earthshaker Khenra, Fervent Cathar.

Legion Loyalist, Goblin Guide, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and Thalia, Heretic Cathar (yeah, I know what you said about budget, but I'm just listing), Bomat Courier, Skyknight Legionnaire is nice (and actually remembers me about the new dude from Ixalan Sky Terror). I love Hellrider, especially if you can get wide. Maybe build around Oketra's Monument? Charging Monstrosaur could be the top end of the deck's curve. In my deck back in the day, Zealous Conscripts was the top end. Speaking of 5-drops and top end of curve Glorybringer, Urabrask the Hidden, Thundermaw Hellkite and Stormbreath Dragon.

Tricks: Boros Charm is ridiculous, it does it all. Unfortunately we stopped playing right after the release of Gatecrash, so I couldn't have Brimstone Volley AND Boros Charm. Good old Lightning Bolt.

You need to change your mana base cause there are too many taplands. Some Sacred Foundry would be nice, there is Kaladesh's Inspiring Vantage. Otherwise I would say to use a few taplands, like 2-3 and get some Evolving Wilds. If the land is going to be tapped, at least Evolving Wilds will thin your deck so you have more chance to draw spells rather than lands.

I think it should be noted, that you must pay for Quicksilver Elemental's ability each time you wish to use it. The reason being is that Mairsil (whether exiled with Quicksilver or having it on the field), applies the static ability of "use this ability only once each turn". So an ability would read:

"Ability : Effect, 'activate this ability only once per turn'"

They implemented this so it is harder to go infinite. So your combo of: "Quicksilver Elemental + Mairsil (with Gilded Lotus/Prismatic Geoscope + Hateflayer): Infinite damage.", will actually not work, since you must pay U for each time to repeat the cycle. This will work if you can discount your abilities, or produce more mana than you are using to infinite tap for mana and use Hateflayer to untap.

With a haste enabler, Deadeye Navigator can do some work. Tap to add UUU or UXX, use it to flicker Mairsil, exile more effects and then repeat. Eventually you can just draw your deck with Arcanis for example by making infinite mana, tap to draw, flicker, trigger Mairsil and exile something to continue, or to cast your Lab Maniac and win via that way. One haste enabler I like is Lightning Mauler. Much like Deadeye, Soulbond doesn't target, meaning things like Morphlings shroud ability doesn't leave you unable to equip with Boots or Greaves as an example.

SaberTech on Thrasher 4C combo

@IronBlackZepp

There's actually a reason why I went with Lightning Mauler over Hellraiser Goblin. Having my haste enabler at 2 mana instead of 3 opened up two more alternate lives of play for me, which I have listed under "Alternate Protean Hulk fetch lines #1 and #3." in the deck description. I wouldn't be able to pull off either of those options if my haste enabler costed 3 mana.

What would really help me out at this point is more info on different deck match-ups that you have come across and tips for how you played your version of the deck against them. People around me don't play EDH at this level of competitiveness and they get kind of disgusted by a turn 3 win, never mind a turn 1 win. Since I don't play online either, I don't know what the deck's good and bad match-ups are or how best to deal with them. Do you have any tips or game stories you could offer?
