Messenger's Speed Discussion
3 months ago
Thanks for the suggestions clayperce. I haven't had a chance to play the deck, but I plan on hitting up a Pioneer event at my LGS this Wednesday.
- I 100% understand your pain with Rootbound Crag . I may consider dropping it as you did before I play on Wednesday. I'm playing a little riskier at 19 lands, but I'm hoping the Servant of the Conduit will help accelerate me.
- Maximize Velocity is there primarily for the haste. I just looked up some other similar 1-CMC options to give our buddy haste: Cartouche of Zeal (or it's clone, Hammerhand , Claim the Firstborn , Expedite , Fervent Strike , Messenger's Speed , and Samut's Sprint . I'll have to see how the format lines up with removal to re-evaluate if I need the hastiness. I am considering swapping in 1x Rhonas the Indomitable for 1x Maximize Velocity .
- I would have several Veil of Summer in the sideboard if I had them. Instead, I've added Heroic Intervention ($$, but I already own a playset) and Ranger's Guile , the poor sibling of Blossoming Defense for more spot-defense.
I'll let you know how the sideboard works out on Wednesday. Aethersphere Harvester is there to out-gun any burn-based decks. Rhythm of the Wild might also be a good option for me to replace the second Maximize Velocity in the main deck.
FYI, I will probably brew a UG version to see if those colors still hold some opportunities, maybe even bring in back to Temur. But with the price of Mana Confluence , the mana base may struggle to fit the requirements.

Made a few modifications today after testing it. I also couldn't find my Magma Jets, so once those are located Ral, Storm Conduit & Messenger's Speed will be replaced by Magma Jet . Mana base was decreased to 17 vs 21 and overall CMC is now under 2. Creatures changed slightly, as Lightning Stormkin was removed, and replaced by Stormchaser Mage . I also added Soul-Scar Mage as well.

I wanted to see what your thoughts were on some alternate haste enablers in exchange for maybe some of the creature based haste such as Bloodlust Inciter and Goblin Motivator . The two I was thinking of are Racecourse Fury and Messenger's Speed ? I appreciate your time and this sick deck list

I would highly recommend a bit more card-draw and a few untappers. Krenko does amazing with a few untappers.
Magewright's Stone is good. Thousand-Year Elixir is great too. Umbral Mantle is decent. Puppet Strings is good on a budget. Illusionist's Bracers are a good choice too. You don't need to go nuts but having three or so untappers in the 99 will serve you well. If you can tutor up Skirk Prospector, Krenko can go infinite with Thornbite Staff, though it just recently spiked in price.
Good red card draw is rare but every EDH deck needs a little. Reforge the Soul, Faithless Looting, Cathartic Reunion, Outpost Siege, Mind's Eye, Skullclamp, and Wild Guess are good. Staff of Nin is good on a budget too.
You have almost no ramp at all. Goblins are pretty low to the ground but every deck needs a little ramp. Krenko usually has a bulls-eye on his back so you'll want to be able to recast him. Sol Ring, Worn Powerstone, Fire Diamond, Mind Stone, Darksteel Ingot, Coldsteel Heart, Hedron Archive, Ur-Golem's Eye, and Gilded Lotus might be good places to start.
I would highly recommend dropping all the combat tricks. In a multiplayer setting with increased life totals they just don't have the "oomf" that they do in regular 60-card formats.
I would also drop Hedron Blade, Stormrider Rig, Claws of Valakut, Goblin War Paint, and Messenger's Speed. No good in EDH. War Horn is decent for Krenko but there are better cards out there so if things get tight you can drop it easily enough.

sriah001 Hmm I know you said that a few goals of yours are to control the board through Wraths, but what about just making Uril a huge enough threat where that doesn't matter.
If your going for more of an enchantress type build there are other card drawing options in terms of Enchantress's Presence, Sram, Senior Edificer, Satyr Enchanter, Mesa Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer, Argothian Enchantress.
Hope that helps!

I am looking to put the finishing touches on my U/R Storm Deck, as well as get a few things to trick it out. At the same time, I have a few cards I would like to get for a few EDH projects, and potential get some cards for my new Modern project Bogles (Not on this list but have in wants/can look at binders).
Storm Final Touches/Needs/Wants:
2x Opt FNM Promo
1x Desperate Ritual (Have 3 foil, would like to complete)
1x Repeal (Any)
1x Wipe Away
1-2x Shattering Spree
2x Pyromancer Ascension
1x Abrade Promo
1x Unsubstantiate (Promo)
(I'd also be willing to swap my 4x 7ED Sleight of Hand for 4x 8ED Sleight of Hand as I like that art better.)
For other Decks:
Darkest Hour (Any)
Mostly Updated Binder

I am also jumping on the JLK Deck Bandwagon and making a derivative Shadowborn Apostle EDH Deck. These are what I am currently looking for for that deck, as well as other decks I have.
I also have a Liliana of the Veil I’d be willing to put towards, or make a trade involving certain cards.
I also can look at binders for stuff I missed. A massive list of potential wants follows, but is in no way everything I want.
BOLD = Regular or Foil, but Foil greatly preferred
Main Project/Top Wants:
2x Phyrexian Altar
2x Athreos, God of Passage
Razaketh, the Foulblooded
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
Enlightened Tutor (Original Art Preferred)
2x Cabal Stronghold
Westvale Abbey Flip
Demon of Dark Schemes
Harvester of Souls
Phyrexian Arena Original Art preferred but any will be considered
Profane Procession Flip
For other Decks:
Newly Updated Binder Not entirely everything I have, but a lot of highlights.

Excellent work on the Uril deck! I run one myself and it's a ton of fun. I gotta say, I love the Bear Umbra + Aggravated Assault; need both to keep the juggle going, but good god that's gotta be fun to pull off.
Anyway, here's a few cards you may want to consider!
These are low cmc cards to help get past creatures to trample right through them.
- Asha's Favor
- Gryff's Boon
- Giant Spectacle
- Shield of the Oversoul
- Messenger's Speed
- Mob Mentality
- Imposing Visage
- Primal Frenzy
- Tilonalli's Crown
These I like because they help remove a blocker. Potentially can be chucked considering the amount of evasion and trample, but once and a while someone has something that is worth tapping or preventing from blocking.
NV_1980 had some good suggestions, as did others. I've got some more :)
- Hull Breach
- Destructive Revelry
- Destructive Urge
- Chandra's Ignition, +1
- Razia's Purification, +1
Not sure how you're doing on mana, but it never hurts to get more! Keep in mind utility enchantments help boost Helm of the Gods and others.
Hope some of the suggestions help. Again, cool deck. Hope you have fun smashing people's faces in!
