Puncturing Blow Discussion

-Arcanity- on Grixis Afflict

Duress and Siren Stormtamer go in the sideboard, and I'd replace Puncturing Blow with Vraska's Contempt since it's strictly better. Extra lands are also needed, this feels like a 23-land-deck or even 24. As for the maybeboard: Boneyard Parley and Inferno Jet suck. The Scarab God is great as an end-curve finisher in the main deck if you have the budget. In the sideboard, Liliana, Death's Majesty would be good for closing out grindy matched, especially cuz we have a lot of zombies. Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh would also be useful for even grindier games. Lost Legacy Would also be a sideboard option. All in all, nice deck!

Looks fairly solid.

Might need some Magma Spray, and Harnessed Lightning in the Sideboard.

We've also found Puncturing Blow useful in the Sideboard.

Soul-Scar Mage isn't a-mage-ing in your deck, but it can deal with Hazoret the Fervent after a Glorybringer, Chandra, Torch of Defiance (-3), Chandra's Defeat, Puncturing Blow or Harnessed Lightning.

I've always wanted to make a Gruul Energy deck like this. Looks really fun - well done!

zachdig to be honest Im just kinda experimenting with them. I like having some non-creature threats game 2-3 in case they bring in more creature removal, and theyre particularly helpful in the mirror or grindier match ups. Something like Hour of Devastation to deal with Hazoret the Fervent and/or Puncturing Blow to handle The Scarab God might be better depending on your meta.

Cards I'm considering post rotation Open Fire, Flame Lash ,Cut, and Puncturing Blow mostly for answer to horse Life gain decks.

maybe put in some Crash Through for giving your creatures trample and helps prowles because it is a cheap card and can draw u a card or if you want some good removal in zombie decks u could add Puncturing Blow i also like having a Thorned Moloch, Frontline Devastator is a good late game card if u have mana u dont need, and Kindled Fury is good for tradesthat is just my opinion and you dont need to use thse cards if u dont want 2 (:

plz respond back if u have a responce thank you (:
