Magus of the Moon Discussion
2 days ago
For those of you curious. The current cards that are being removed for play testing other cards are the Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault combo, Gift of Immortality , and Iroas, God of Victory
Iroas, God of Victory will be a guaranteed cut from the deck the next time I update the list, it's more of a question on what will get put in to replace it. Top candidates atm are Lion's Eye Diamond , Magus of the Moon , Aven Mindcensor , and Trinisphere .

Running wheel-effects like Reforge the Soul would be pretty neat to make them discard their early-game hand, potentially screwing them over.
You could implement the combo of Madcap Experiment + Platinum Emperion since you're in mono-red and aren't running any artifacts at the moment.

I borrowed this deck to do some testing of my own. So, I can't comment on how well it would do in multiplayer, but I learned a few things that should be helpful in duel action.
It needs more lands. Or it needs more draw to help find lands. Or it needs better ramp options. This could be just a matchup issue against my particular deck. (I use a modest amount of land destruction and a fair amount of artifact removal.) However, there were also too many times when the land drops stalled and the deck never got past the mid game.
Lose: Sword of the Animist
Sword of the Animist is normally a good ramp card, but your creatures are just too expensive. If you want to keep it consider some Myr or something else that's cheap and can put it to use early.
I have a lukewarm feeling about all the cost reducers. They helped, but were very conditional. I can't help but think those slots could be put to better purpose... like basic lands.
There's also a couple of lands that you can sac to gain something. I never had a chance to sac any of them. I needed every freakin' land I could find. I never cycled, I never searched for artifact, I never recovered something from my grave. I tapped them all for precious, precious mana.
You need much more removal. Again, this may be a matchup thing. It's easy to think that dragons are big enough they can simply blast through or fly over the opposition. That's not always true. Malignus is a big creature. Lord of Extinction is a big creature. Kresh the Bloodbraided should never, ever be allowed to become a 56/56 beatstick, but I got him in that neighborhood several times against your dragons. How did I do it? Your deck couldn't remove him. You just feed him a bunch of dragons to make him stronger.
It's not just bigger creatures, either. Consider cards with effects like Silent Arbiter.

It was recommended to me for testing.

Invert / Invent isn't legal in this deck because Krenko doesn't have blue in his color identity. It would be nice though!
You may also want to consider the following cards:

Unfortunately I haven't updated this list in a very long time, Spoosky. Originally I tested the fast mana rocks and decided against it because it took away from the actual gas of the deck (creatures and combo).
I've thought about reworking the deck completely though. If I do, I'm sure it will end up being less tribal and overall more efficient (more mana rocks, maybe Magus of the Moon and less likely Magus of the Wheel, etc).
My life is definitely busy, so I just haven't had the time, energy, or desire to mess with anything on here other than some Pauper decks, but when I do I'll make sure to holler at you! Thanks for the comment, Spoosky!
