Molten Disaster Discussion

It seems like you're running burn as your wincon.

Here are some cards that might help.

Static burn: Harsh Mentor, Zo-Zu the Punisher, Ankh of Mishra, Manabarbs

Finishers: Acidic Soil, Price of Progress. Molten Disaster is a decent finisher you can consider with split-second and also acts as a board clear (you might try replacing Devil's Play with this)

Since these are symmetrical burn, you could also run Glacial Chasm and stall it out. This is also the most important land card to run with these mono red sorcery finishers. Your Pariah is also a god level card with this setup. You might also consider Heartless Hidetsugu as a combo with these 2 cards.

For more drastic changes, you can fix around your landbase to cut a lot of nonbasics and add basics with a load of fetchlands, such as Fabled Passage, Prismatic Vista, , Ash Barrens, Terramorphic Expanse, Evolving Wilds, Myriad Landscape, Warped Landscape, some Panorama fetches, and keeping Flooded Strand + Scalding Tarn + Arid Mesa. I have this landbase in another of my burn decks and its fully sufficient for tri-colour commanders. In white, you get access to Land Tax as well so it helps further fix your mana - although in my experience with this landbase I would say its not even necessary.

With a basic land landbase, it opens you up to more burn, such as Price of Progress, Burning Earth. It also opens you up to hard stax cards if you have a vendetta against someone: Magus of the Moon, Blood Moon, Back to Basics.


An alternative package you can consider with your wheels is Narset, Parter of Veils and Alms Collector to discard their entire hand. You already have Smothering Tithe as well. Psychic Possession is also insane with wheels as it lets you draw 14 off a single wheel.

I would also just add Underworld Breach because its straight up insane.

You can also try Mana Geyser for a super explosive turn by recasting it from the graveyard again.

Dack Fayden is both a ramp card and a way to dump cards into your graveyard.

Good old Blasphemous Act and Chain Reaction are 2 of the best board clears you can pair with Sevinne.

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip Baby Jace is a VERY good card with Sevinne. Helps cycle into lands/ramp early and lets you cast spells from your graveyard once it transforms into Jace, Telepath Unbound.


Some cards I see that you could also try cutting/changing are:

Land Tax - you can run ramp artifacts instead, such as Surveyor's Scope. Surveyor's Scope is an excellent card with many fetchlands as you can tap them to sac as a cost, then activate Surveyor's Scope for up to 3 basics untapped since your fetchland is no longer on the field. Or basically any other 2 mana rock will do.

Mirage Mirror and Scroll Rack - these cards are a bit clunky to use and you can do more with mana rocks instead.

I would consider Ral, Izzet Viceroy a bit too slow.

You should swap Jeskai Ascendancy for the new Whirlwind of Thought

You have a lot of single target protection - Momentary Blink, Lightning Greaves, Diplomatic Immunity. I would suggest cutting one or two because you can still tutor for it.

Narset of the Ancient Way SEEMS a bit slow (but I have't seen this card in action yet), so you could replace it with Narset, Parter of Veils

Ray of Distortion is pretty omega slow. You might want to try Aura of Silence or a simple Disenchant

Personally I'm trying to build a cEDH Sevinne burn deck haha! Thinking of also trying Thought Lash with Thassa's Oracle

Long live our Overlord Sevinne

Hey Seabody

Indeed my deck Here include Arcbond, Blasphemous Act and Rolling Earthquake.

I haven't added Molten Disaster because i wanted to include Torment of Hailfire (I know it will not work with repercussion but it work with Wound Reflection).

Maybe i could use Master of Cruelties without Master Warcraft or Rogue's Passage and surprise other players, but i fear that on end game it will not be feasible within my playgroup, i might try.

What do you think of my decklist: Here ?

Hey Eloniel,

I could see arguments for both Rolling Earthquake or Molten Disaster - but if you're running them I'd include the full Repercussion package- Blasphemous Act, Arcbond, and possibly Fire Covenant.

I run Master of Cruelties fine without either of those - we have lots of removal if it's imperative we punch through and it's often easy enough to find someone without a blocker - he's most effective with haste enablers where we can surprise someone.

I think Master Warcraft is just a much worse Disrupt Decorum to be honest (although much more budget friendly) - and overall I'm not to keen on the card as you don't get to choose who is being attacked, as alexjustdoit already mentioned.

As for Rogue's Passage - it's definitely playable, however we are very tight on utility land slots and there are quite a few I'd choose over this. Sure it seems good on paper to help get an attacker through to get back Monarch, but in practice we have lots of creatures with either evasion or deathtouch so that's not normally an issue. I also don't like spending 5 mana on my own turn unless I'm deploying something generally as we want to play at instant speed as much as possible. Just my take, but I hardly think either of these are necessary to run Master effectively.

Looks good, you should check out Molten Disaster and The Ozolith

alexjustdoit & Seabody Thanks for yours answers.

Rolling Earthquake is most of the time better than Molten Disaster but i guess that depend of the number of counterspells runs by players in your meta.

My list is there: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/queen-marchesa-my-brew-copy/ I don't use fetch so the mana base is less efficient and i need to have a little more land than you.

Seabody I wonder how you play Master of Cruelties without Rogue's Passage or Master Warcraft ?

One synergy that i didn't included is Humble Defector + Homeward Path.

I should add teferi protection but it's expensive !

Thanks for the comments Eloniel!

A lot of these suggestions have been considered and if they aren't mentioned somewhere in the primer currently they may be added over time. We're trying to juggle being thorough discussing the many options this deck has against overwhelming it with reviews of every possible card.

I'm currently running Master of Cruelties in my list and only cut Insurrection the other day in order to try out some new stuff. You can find my list here.

Not a huge fan of the 3 mana rocks or hunted cycle in this particular shell, but in something similar to alexjustdoit's K&T deck I think they would be good options.

Molten Disaster is interesting as a boardwipe that could combo with Repercussion to close out the game. I'll mention that on our discord channel for discussion.

What about cards that give other player token while giving us some tool for the end game:

Hunted Dragon

Hunted Horror

Hunted Lammasu

And more politics tools:

Virtus's Maneuver

Spectral Searchlight

Victory Chimes

Mathas, Fiend Seeker

Manipulation:

Master Warcraft

I suggested you lot of cards, some that fit aikidos, some control, some politics and some about winning the game.

I thinks some of them at least could be used by this deck or at least why you don't think they would suit this deck :)

Still think this deck should add one or 2 more winning that to rely on opponent creatures or opponent willing to attack you (either spells: Torment of Hailfire , Rolling Earthquake , Molten Disaster , enchantment: Captive Audience or creatures Master of Cruelties , Archfiend of Despair, Virtus the Veiled

Great primer =)
