Mad Prophet Discussion
1 month ago
I want to make either a temur, or grixis themed deck based on the end of the world, use cards like Mad Prophet and Desperate Ravings to show people talking about it, and red cards with lava, and then blow up the world with an Obliterate effect, any help or card suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

So far, I found it very dependent on cards that discard. Because of that I put back in Wild Guess and added Mad Prophet. I also found room for All Is Dust because I was definitely lacking in the board wipe category. As much as I love Vedalken Orrery, the fact that Feldon's ability can be done at instant speed if needed is enough for me to take it out. This deck struggles against recursion decks like Karador, Ghost Chieftain. So I added Burn Away to help with that. Might even add in Relic of Progenitus since recursion is pretty popular in my meta, thought having to exile it is bit of a turn off. And finally I added Avalanche Riders because there are A LOT of decks in my meta that run Maze of Ith and it's really, really, really annoying haha.

I always find that cards like Mad Prophet help red's draw probelms considerably, as well. Just hold onto those extra lands you draw, and you'll be able to cycle through bad top decks.

Take out Mad Prophet, Macabre Waltz, and Alchemist's Greeting. Throw in a playset of Call the Bloodline. Stromkirk Condemned is a must have.Indulgent Aristocrat and
Bloodhall Priest are great. Discarding and +1/+1s at instant speed is what makes vampires powerful

Hey there, I've got maybe a couple of suggestions that will all be pretty budget.
Eyes of the Watcher, Jace's Sanctum, and Flamespeaker Adept are all good interactions with scrying. I'd also check out "draw, then discard" effects like Reckless Scholar or Mad Prophet, which seem to provide better value than Faerie Miscreant or Weave Fate...if you add in enough, you can even consider adding Lightning Axe and/or Fiery Temper, which is a great budget burn spell.
In general, I'd consider adding a pair of Goblin Electromancers to a spell-slinging deck like this.
If your Guardians of Meletis are in your deck only to avoid getting wiped by Ugin, I'd recommend some UR Eldrazi. Their Devoid keyword makes them colorless. Check out Salvage Drone, Tide Drifter, or Herald of Kozilek. Also, there are some Devoid cards will some great general spell-slinging utility -- see Brutal Expulsion, Void Shatter, Horribly Awry.
It just kinda depends on which direction you wanna lean with your deck. Your weakest links seem to be all of your creatures besides Omenspeaker and Sigiled Starfish, and also Stratus Walk. They just don't do a whole lot to contribute to your decks stated purpose of burn, draw, and scry.
Last thought -- I know Ugin is sweeeeet and totally worth building around, but your deck will need some additional win conditions against the player who has Dreadbore. That's why I suggest the aggressively-geared creatures, so you have a backup plan or two.
Your deck is Modern legal, by the way. Currently, the Zendikar block, the Shadows over Innistrad block, and the Kaladesh block are all legal in Standard, if you decide to go that route, but for a casual player there's nothing wrong with some casual Modern play (it's my preferred format, too).
Good luck brewing!

I'm under the impression they're super-useful for Feldon, but I almost wonder if I have TOO may rummaging and looting effects. Mad Prophet, Rummaging Goblin, Burning Inquiry, Cathartic Reunion, Faithless Looting, Shattered Perception, Tormenting Voice, Wild Guess. I think it's good though.

Goldnight Castigator could help get faster wins, but I fear I'd end up with a glass canon that's either won or lost by turn 5. I quite enjoy playing burn control, and Mad Prophet is great for that. You can tap him, play Avacyn's Judgment for however much mana you may have to take out some creatures then draw another card and maintain cards in hand. It's either that or you direct all your burn spells at the opponent to finish him/her off. Sin Prodder works great with burn spells too, when his ability triggers your opponent gets the choice between burn or burn.
