Aethos on Pyromancer Ascension and Cathartic Reunion

1 day ago

Situation: Pyromancer Ascension on the battlefield. Empty graveyard. At least 2 Cathartic Reunion in hand.

Question: Does Pyromancer Ascension's first ability trigger, if I discard a Cathartic Reunion for the additional cost of a Cathartic Reunion I cast?

Thank you for your answers.

Looking good so far, glad you ended up posting it.

Cloven Casting is good and does a fantastic job, however, I worry about you becoming mana starved, try Swarm Intelligence instead for better results. Furthermore, if you're interested in keeping the curve low, try out Pyromancer Ascension.

So here's a list of the cards that I got for the deck:

However, there's plenty of things I know I need, and some things I might consider (thanks to crap, that's a lot of cards. What I want to do right now is have Kess play the support role while I tutor up Nekusar to play. As soon as I can start nabbing the wheels for Nekusar's pain, Kess's ability will allow me to cast them back for more wheel-y fun times (for me, at least). That way, people won't realize that this is actually a Nekusar deck: he's hiding, ready to strike! But my biggest problem is discerning which of these 150+ cards I need to whittle down to about 65, and also figure out how many lands I need to play. I've got a little money to spend, and this list is about as far as I'll go cost-wise.

Flame Juggler

Creature - Human


Flame Juggler enters the battlefield with 3 +1/+1 counters

, Remove a +1/+1 counter from Flame Juggler: Flame Juggler deals 1 damage to target creature or player


Create a "quest" enchantment like Quest for the Holy Relic or Pyromancer Ascension

Snivy__ The reason I'm not running entirely shock lands is that in the meta I play in, there are a number of predominantly burn players, and I found that fetching for those was taxing my life total too much, especially with the Anguished Unmakings and the Bitterblossoms. I usually focus on getting two basics out first (also handy against blood moon) so that my tango lands enter play untapped. The Dreadbore/Terminate switch I'll consider, though. That was one of the things I still wasn't 100% sure on.

Cloudy105N While that may be true, the Sphinx's Rev aren't only for the card draw, as they give me a buffer of life to use with my Bitterblossoms and Anguished Unmakings.

Pieguy396 I have considered it. Initially the deck was mostly Grixis Control with my finisher being Lightning Bolt and Exquisite Firecraft, using Pyromancer Ascension to double all the damage. The fact I don't have delve cards in the deck is a remnant of that. The lack of Snapcaster Mage is a cost consideration at the moment.

unredemption thank you for your suggestions. I think Gut Shot does too low damage even if it's "free". I prefer to have Lava Spike or even Incinerate for a better dose of damage, which doubles if I have Pyromancer Ascension on.

Really liked Gitaxian Probe though. A draw and spying on the enemy's hand for 0 mana is something that can work on this deck.

FNM latest result.

First game: Mirror match 2-1

-Lost the first match with opponent's Liliana of the Veil hitting the board first.

-Won Second and third match, my opponent sideboarded fulminator mage and Liliana's defeat to answer my planeswalkers and man-lands. I used Crumble to dust eliminating all of my opponent's Raging ravine.

Second game: Storm 2-1

-Won the first match, I destroyed Pyromancer Ascension while Liliana keeps going with her discard.

-Lost second match, my opponent has the ultimate opening hand for storm tried to kill Baral but was countered using Remand.

-Won Third match, Liliana again for the win and Nihil Bomb prevents the grave from flashbacks.

Third Game: Jeskai Control 0-2

-Gideon Jura and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar protected by counter spells is absolutely ridiculous.

Fourth Game: Mardu Midrange 1-2

-Won first game with Tireless Tracker and Dark Confidant, with having lots of card draw the game ended pretty quickly.

-Lost second and third game, my creatures were getting hammered from removals, around turn 7 or 8 my opponent came back using Obzedat, Ghost Council with fatal push in hand and no Terminate the game quickly ended right there.

APPLE01DOJ Wurmlover I do like Delver of Secrets  Flip a lot I will try and fit some into the deck. APPLE01DOJ I think I keep Take Inventory over Think Twice since when Pyromancer Ascension is up it lets me draw a lot more if I want to. Wurmlover I was thinking about adding Cryptic Command into the deck but I currently don't have the money for that.
