Also its nice to see that Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx count drop slightly. 3 is ensuring you are likely to draw it when you need it. Probably COULD drop to 2 safely and still draw it most games.

Also, some pros seem to be doing it, so I'll suggest it. Slip in a few more R/X scrylands. It will "Slow down the deck" very slightly, but its midrange Red Dev. You aren't worried about speed as much as you're worried about getting the right cards. 3 copies of Temple of Triumph would not go astray. Also, you could consider Mana Confluence from JOU for a little more fixing, which would allow you to put Chained to the Rocks in sideboard.

The infinite combo in your description doesn't work, by the way. All of your untap artifacts have to tap as part of their cost. If you want to work harder on making it infinite you should look into Sword of the Paruns , Umbral Mantle , Staff of Domination , Thornbite Staff , and Aggravated Assault . Which ones you use depend on at what point in the game you want to win with them; Umbral mantle is the fastest if you have infinite mana often enough while thornbite staff is the easiest to get off with your many sac outlets.

Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you! When I said that I didn't like Burn at the Stake what I meant was that it costs too much resource to kill only one opponent; 5 mana and 14 tokens should be doing more for you, I feel. I would rather put in something in service to my other wincons like another untap effect. Have you considered Staff of Domination ? It's rather expensive mana-wise but it kind of does everything. Most importantly, it acts as both an untap effect AND a draw source on a single card which is very nice.

How do you find Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to work? I've debated adding it, but I'm wary about putting in too many non-red lands due to Krenko's double-red requirement. It doesn't ramp you into Krenko, which is pretty sub-optimal, but the potential to explode with it once you've got some board state is pretty appealing.

It looks pretty good. Have you considered Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ? It seems like it might mesh pretty well in here

ManiacMike0643 Thank you very much. It's always very nice to notice that people are commenting such an awesome advice. I would gladly remove Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and replace it with Fabled Hero , but 18 lands is too small amount, let me know what should I do. Thanks :D

I don't think the Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is necessary, I can see it being useful with the Launch the Fleets, but that would require a large devotion which you may not have.Removing Nyx would allow you to put in Fabled Hero without removing your lifelink.I also think Archangel of Thune would be a good addition due to the fact that you have a sizeable amount of life gain in this deck.Aside from these changes, I love the deck, It's AWESOME!

More Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Arbor Colossus , and Nylea, God of the Hunt . And Courser of Kruphix is a better, walking and talking Into the Wilds that a) fits the curve better b) provides more devotion.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is almost a must. Makes it possible to drop more spells per turn and get the best bang for your buck out of the merchant.

You have a few pretty high cost cards, namely Army of the Damned . I would add a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to get that extra push to drop the army early and swing hard. Could also sack a few of the zombies from army to Grave Pact and Nantuko Husk to clear opponent's board for a clean killing blow. Price
