True Pyroblast is very good against Cyclonic Rift. Definitely keep then. If your playgroup is not tempted with Tempt with Discovery you can always run Hour of Promise which gets you two lands.

I like the list, seems like a lot of fun. Nasty land destruction. Have you thought about Tempt with Discovery? Going and grabbing any 4 lands you want is amazing. Is Pyroblast to counter opposing counterspells? If so, have you thought about Autumn's Veil? It doesn't blow up a blue permanent but it can shut out UB interaction for an entire turn which is nice.

Lowdown: Removed the "Protection from" combo & Odric, Lunarch Marshal. Added Reito Lantern as a "Super-Recursion" card In here. Removed Ghitu Chronicler as Sunforger puts instants in for free & counts as being cast. Keeping Paradox Engine for versatility, & Geode Golem is removed...

Added Guttersnipe for an Infinite Burn combo w/ Sunforger & Reito Lantern.

Replaced all 5 Artifact Tutors w/ one that can search for anything in the deck: Planar Portal. Unsure about cutting Emrakul's Hatcher as Eldrazi Spawn make for not just Mana Sources, but also Chump Blockers, & it can be flickered... Must keep Radiate for the fact that nonpermanent cards are a big player here. Same for Paradox Engine + Boros Signet + Sunforger combo for endless Sunforging...

Only 7 CMC is the Commander. Impossible to remove.

For the comment in question...

  1. I am, nevertheless, working on several decks that are casual (With an edge that still challenges.): Gorm the Great & Virtus the Veiled, & Kozilek, the Great Distortion (Still WIP...)

  2. I know the 2018 Precons were trash, but just thinking of individual cards would be for the best, as this years' secondary commanders were better anyway for the most part...

Regarding my Comment #11: I am focused on cEDH by this point. Besides, my WIP Kozilek deck is literally worse than 90% CASUAL. Worst case about >4 cards? Both 6 Drops are staples here, Same for Endbringer for . 5 drops aren't any better: has Emrakul's Hatcher, which is a 2-4-1. Radiate Manipulates mu Instants & Sorceries even when casted by Sunforger. Neheb, the Eternal makes Mana, even after the entire Combat Phase, & even after addition Combat Phases & Main Phases. "Stallion." I claim. Dunno about Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker yet... MAYBE I'll remove Apocalypse + Teferi's Protection, if it doesn't mesh so well w/ cEDH... However, I won't remove Paradox Engine; stuff like Isochron Scepter copies of Fork for Nonpermanent copying, & Sunforger Activations. Especially the latter.

I reduced those to just Planar Portal, & I have Counterspells at least: For Artifact Blast for enemy impurities, Molten Influence beats most spot removal (Unless it has Split Second.), Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast beats Blue Permanents & Counterspells, Even Dualcaster Mage can copy an enemy Counterspell if you want, countering the real thing. is a little bit different: Dawn Charm has a mode that stops a spell that targets you, Lapse of Certainty puts target spell on top of the enemy Library, & I plan to find a card that can compliment w/ this. Ideas? Mana Tithe is a Planarshifted Force Spike, which can be decent sometimes... Rebuff the Wicked is the same as Dawn Charm, but at a permanent instead. Is Illumination Good?

I hope this can help w/ the decisions on Monday; I'm thinking of Keeping Razia's Purification, & keep Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith + Sol Ring w/ Reito Lantern in hand. I hope this works as a combo that's good...

I'll be waiting until then, landofMordor. I dunno what high drop cards to cut...

Wizards, we need Forked Bolt legal in pauper. Like most decks, this one struggles against Delver, and there's not a lot of good stuff we can do to keep up against either U or UR.

I could go up to more Pyroblasts in SB, but unless we get a fast draw with removal, it's pretty dang tough.

SB CHANGE: -1 Curfew, +1 Pyroblast. Not seeing Bogles anymore, but do want to keep the pocket SB card in Curfew for them. Also works well against Inside Out, and is fine against Gurmag Angler decks.

I feel like Deprive could be replaced by Lightning Bolt. What do you guys think? I occasionally get value from bouncing back an Ash Barrens if I had to play it to make a land drop, but probably in <5% of games. And then occasional value against discard decks.

As always, cheers!

SynergyBuild on $3.9 EDH Deck

If you want to upgrade it, there are multiple ways on a budget, you can use Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast effects to protect from blue countermagic, all of the artifact mana like Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Sol Ring, etc, and really speed the deck up to around turn 4 consistently!

Hey, so here is the deck I copy and pasted and modified a bit:

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/errozone2-copy/?cb=1538865901

I took out Pyroblast and Notion Thief because I don't play against enough blue decks to justify it, and replaced them with Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time. At that point, I figured with those two and Time Spiral, Ad Nauseam would have the potential to do just way too much damage to me to be worth it. I took it out, and thought for a bit on what could possibly ever replace a card like that in a deck like this. I ended up adding Whir of Invention to EoT Aetherflux Reservoir, but now I'm left wondering if it's even a lab man deck or not now. Is Mind's Desire and Demonic Consultation really what fuel the lab man win, and are they enough on their own? Or at this point, without Nauseam, is it even worth having lab man in the deck?

I also revised the lands a bit as well. I have the duals, and I wanted to use the cool new battlebond dual lands, since this is for competitive pod commander, not 1v1 or anything.

What are your thoughts on my version?

Don't mainboard Pyroblast, use Deep Analysis instead of Think Twice.

Snuff Out's cmc is higher than the deck wants to run. It has an excellent alternative cost but, the deck wants to stay away from as many cards over 3cmc as possible because of Ad Nauseam. I tested Cruel Tutor for a while and it's just too slow. For 3cmc putting the searched card on top of the library and paying life feels like a steep cost. I'd rather just pay 4cmc and use a Diabolic Tutor which, isn't making the case for Cruel Tutor look good. With regard to Fork and Reverberate there are a couple issues. If you play a few hundred games with this deck you'll notice that you have 2 regularly occurring mana issues: 1) getting at least 1 red to cast Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and 2) getting 3 black to cast Doomsday. Fork and Reverberate both operate outside the easily obtainable colors/amounts of mana needed to make Fork and Reverberate effective. They are also both somewhat situational because if there's nothing good to copy then you're sitting on a dead card. Personally, when it comes to countering a counter, I would rather stick with Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast and Burnout. They have a smaller life impact when you Ad Nauseam and they are a LOT easier to cast in a pinch. This deck is very tight on mana--you may not even have that extra red you need to fire off a Fork or Reverberate to copy a counter spell when you need it.
