Manic Vandal Discussion

Triton on Ain't Got Time To Be Dead

I have an Alesha deck too, but it's more focused on combo rather than reanimating. If you're interested, the combo is Murderous Redcap + Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit/Vizier of Remedies/Cathars' Crusade + any sac outlet.

For general suggestions, I'd recommend using any creature with the <2 power with an EtB effect. Manic Vandal, War Priest of Thune, Duergar Hedge-Mage, and Avalanche Riders are all cards that destroy something, doubling as reccuring removal. I'd also recommend more efficient removal, like Swords to Plowshares, Anguished Unmaking, Terminate, Wear / Tear and Path to Exile (if it's not too expensive for you). Also board wipes to deal with board states that you dislike, such as Retribution of the Meek (once again, if you can afford it) and Dusk / Dawn.

Other general suggestions are more ramp like the signets, and looting effects like the properly-named Faithless Looting, Reforge the Soul, Cathartic Reunion, and Tormenting Voice. These cards all supply draw power to the deck, which is much needed.

I know this is a lot to talk win, but if you want me to help you out with cuts, feel free to ask! Hope this helps!

Having 4 Aether Vial is a little ridiculous. Also having Gempalm Incinerator , Manic Vandal, and Grenzo, Dungeon Warden don't make much sense in this deck. I would use just 4 Bloodstained Mire and 4 Wooded Foothills makes more sense, money wise. 4 Lightning Bolt and 3-4 Goblin Grenade is definitely your best option for damage. Blood Moon is strictly better than Magus of the Moon as well. The point of Goblins is to go fast, not wide. Unless this is for purely casual play.

Sweet looking deck. Personally I'm a huge fan of Liquimetal Coating with Kiki; seems like it'd be pretty good in your deck with Goblin Welder, Vandalblast, Manic Vandal, etc. It's especially nice with Hellkite Tyrant. Krark-Clan Ironworks and Trading Post are also cheeky with the coating. Awesome deck though, love the idea of Stigma Lasher.

P.S. although it's pricey, Sneak Attack is amazing!

DevoidMage on Maindeck-able Hate for Certain Matchups

If you're really desperate, Kataki, War's Wage is basically the best anti-affinity creature there is.

Otherwise, you just need to know what to remove and when and hope your draws line up well for game one. There aren't too many creatures that just shut down the deck and also have utility in other matchups. You could play like Linvala, Keeper of Silence or Phyrexian Revoker I suppose.

Torch Fiend / Manic Vandal if you're really really desperate.

Dude! I don't know why I haven't seen this yet, but it looks dope! It's wonderfully straightforward, and that is usually the most enjoyable way to play red, amirite? I'd say that since you no longer run chandra, liberating combustion is too pricy. You can find better and cheaper burn. I'd go with Ravaging Blaze or maybe Scouring Sands to deal with large numbers of weenies. Since you're not really using energy counters that much, I'd replace the spontaneous artist with something more juicy like a Manic Vandal or an Avaricious Dragon if it ain't too expensive :p also, since you're in monoR, Cinder Pyromancer will definitely earn her keep. Stay fresh!

Hi UnleashedHavok

Firstly thank you for the comment and thank you for the up vote, I've taken a good look at your deck and I have some notes. Your deck is lovely and plays some cards I wish I had, but here are my suggestions that are aimed at making the deck faster and a bit more competitive.

Now get some boots, Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots, these cards both protect Alesha, Who Smiles at Death and provide haste making Anger obsolete.

This brings me to my next point, believe it or not a reanimator deck can be creature heavy and what I see are creatures that make other creatures obsolete and some that just have very little impact, here are creatures I would consider cutting:

Ponyback Brigade

Cartel Aristocrat

Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit



Figure of Destiny

Mirror Entity

Sin Collector

Thief of Blood

And Windborn Muse

To me these creatures are low impact, what you want are more high impact Enter The Battle field triggers that can be abused with Alesha, Who Smiles at Death but also Strionic Resonator and Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, and yes you should main board Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. Now I also mention removing Mirror Entity that's because a Sacrifice Outlet like Nantuko Husk does the same job without having to wipe your board in an infinite combo, and that's something your deck is a little light on, Sacrifice Outlets.

You mentioned having trouble reanimating creatures, apart from the boots protecting Alesha, Who Smiles at Death play more sorcery reanimate spells, definitely main board your Reanimate, Victimize and stick a Dread Return in there too and these will work wonders with your Anarchist (I wish I had an Anarchist... and Reconnaissance)

I'd also take out your Increasing Ambition, you already play Buried Alive and whack in Diabolic Intent, Demonic Tutor and/or Entomb (cards I also wish I had lol)

Also your Maybe Board has a Bone Shredder, definitely play it, Bone Shredder has a very strong etb and kindly kills itself every turn. As well as the flip walkers, they are just straight up value, who doesn't love reanimating a plainswalker it's like they were made for Alesha, Who Smiles at Death.

I enjoy your Manic Vandal to kill an artifact, and War Priest of Thune to kill an enchantment, but with tutors and Duergar Hedge-Mage they might become obsolete, something else to consider are small creatures that make you the monarch, there are some good ones in Conspiracy 2.

I Don't think either of us want you to make a carbon copy of my deck but at the end of the day there's only 100 cards to work with and the higher you go the more the similarities will build.

I like your deck, it's given me some ideas too and I hope my feedback is helpful
