Mugging Discussion

Armaros92 on Not Rakdos?

I like the idea of creatures not blocking, but then they can still attack the next turn. It also doesn't look like you intend to block much, so instant speed removal is a way of defending yourself on your opponent's turn. Removal leaves the board open and after you attack there is no longer a backswing coming.

I'd suggest Terminate to get rid of blockers, add in some Lightning Bolts (not super budget, but also not breaking the bank) and taking out the Seismic Stomp which is a dead card against a board with fliers, while Mugging still doubles as removal.

Along with Brute Strength you might want to look at Brute Force which does essentially the same but instead of adding trample it adds extra toughness, which can in turn save your creature from dying. If it lives another turn to hit you've dealt more damage with it than with +3/+1 and trample. Brute Force also has going for it that it is a 1-drop.

For more removal consider Dreadbore, Burn from Within, to deal with planeswalkers and indestructibles as well.

Hope it helps!

I don't know if you're looking for cards that your local game store doesn't have, but if you just want general recommendations, I have a few.

Some highly recommended burn spells: Incinerate, Searing Blood, Magma Jet, Magma Spray, Pillar of Flame

Some good creatures: Ash Zealot, Stromkirk Noble, Firedrinker Satyr, Zurgo Bellstriker, Vampire Lacerator

Some other strong options:Duress, Doom Blade, Tragic Slip, Disfigure

This is if you want to make an extremely aggressive deck. All of these recommended cards are somewhere in a budget range, with nothing over 50 cents (on TCG player).

You also should cut 4 cards no matter what, because you currently have 64. You should probably get rid of Seismic Stomp, Madcap Skills, Mugging, and Act of Treason. The first 3 are sub-par, the last one is a more niche card.

If you're going to make that hyper-aggressive deck, I think 19-20 lands is preferable. And the 3 and 4 drops aren't going to cut it.

If you want to keep Exava and add planeswalkers, the deck is going to be a lot slower. If you do go that direction you should add some of the control elements like doom blade and duress. You should also probably take some of the 3-drops from the deck you linked to: Shambling Remains, Hellhole Flailer, Ashenmoor Gouger.

Just my 2 cents.

I'm sure this is covered somewhere but having trouble getting the right search terms I guess.

In this specific case:

I have Soulblade Djinn on the battlefield

I play Rise from the Tides

My understanding is that Soulblade Djinn triggers and resolves before Rise from the Tides resolves ... But is the Soulblade Djinn effect something that lasts all round, or does it just affect the creatures on the battlefield as it resolves?

Ie, In this case, would any of the Zombie tokens get Soulblade Djinn's +1/+1 effect? (and any previous ones, say If I had cast another instant earlier this round like Mugging?)

I guess it's the difference of whether it's an effect that is present and applies until the end of turn, or an effect that is applied in that moment and the results it gives out last until the end of turn.

Take out something for Monastery Swiftspear and take out Mugging for Chain Lightning Don't like Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker he will rarely be casted at 5 and use Koth of the Hammer Or Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded

Since you don't seem to be on budget here are my recommendations. Replace Lightning Strike with Lightning Bolt; Replace Chambreaker Devils with Vexing Devil; Replace Arc Lightning with Anger of the Gods or Exquisite Firecraft; Replace Magmatic Insight with Mugging since this is a burn deck and not a control deck and finally, this is Modern. :D

Here's my Burn deck if you want to check it out: Big Burn Theory _

Aside from Mind Rot and Mugging, it looks pretty focused and fun for casual play. I like it! I gave you an upvote.

Oh, add some Duress and maybe some Ordeal of Purphoros. They're pretty good.
