Suns_Champion on Wait for the kicker - Hallar, the Firefletcher

5 days ago

Okay buddy here we go!

I think we need to fix a lot of things here. Ramp is an easy fix, we'll get some more instant/sorceries that get lands because they are safest. Then we'll work on getting more counters on Hallar in more efficient ways. We'll also swap out some of your kicker spells for other kicker spells that do better things.

Cards to look at:

Cards to maybe cut

So with all that I hope you're mana will be more consistant and your draw will be more powerful, then you'll be able to dump more counters on Hallar and snipe some wins. If not, your kicker spells will have more impact because they'll draw or remove or ramp. Focus on the 2cmc ramp cards, then swap out the kicker spells, then get those draw cards in there.

Here's a Deck you can also look at

Do you remember the izzet Sphinx's Tutelage deck with Tormenting Voice from standard?

In pioneer you can use Treasure Cruise , Cathartic Reunion , Magmatic Insight and Fraying Sanity to mill their entire library by turn 5 or six.

I love the idea of mill and I’m going to play test your deck to see how fast you would deck the opponent.

Maybe instead of Magmatic Insight you could add Lightning Axe for dealing with other creatures, or Tormenting Voice if you want the card draw. The reason for this is that, if you draw an emrakul, you need a discard outlet.

Magmatic Insight could help lower your mana curve. It’s sorcery speed though so I don’t know how helpful that would actually be without play testing.

So, after finally getting some rest (averaging between 2-3 hours of sleep per night, crazy work shifts) I been thinking. Now correct me if i'm wrong here.

Doomsday Stack. From my understanding you're going to Dark Ritual into Doomsday . Now you need a card to draw into that stack. Thus, needing a card such as Night's Whisper , let's say this is in hand(or any other card as such); Now we can draw into the Doomsday pile, which then the stack will look like:

Faithless Looting

Street Wraith

Leonin Relic-Warder (Discard)

Animate Dead

Goblin Bombardment

that's a total of CMC5, . This is all assuming you're not going to wait until your next turn to draw into that stack. I was under the impression this is what will be done in 1 turn to end the game. Now if you are going to wait until your next turn to draw into the stack, then we can just dump this pile.

If you were to wait a turn to begin the draw, depending if there is a land in hand, you can replace Street Wraith with Magmatic Insight which will bring the stack to a total CMC6, . But now it comes with the a cost of trying to find a home for Magmatic Insight

If you want the draw/digging over the discard, then Magmatic Insight isn’t terrible.

Have you considered Magmatic Insight ? I know it isn't faithless looting but it is a 1 cmc cantrip that gets rid of unnecessary lands in your hand.

Since Faithless Looting is banned in modern, what do you think of using Magmatic Insight as a replacement?
