If you are playing red and you want to absolutely f*CK storm...

Eidolon of the Great Revel

Or if you are in Legacy

Pyrostatic Pillar

resolve one of these and smugly look at them and say "Come get some."

mortilus Thank you for the input! My playgroup has houseruled that hybrid mana costs are OK, but I would have to take the card out if I played this deck at an LGS. I would argue that Eidolon of the Great Revel and Pyrostatic Pillar would actually do more damage to me over the course of a game than my opponents, but my hope is that my other burn spells will take let me grab the win from them before their decks are ready to take advantage of my lower life total. I'll be doing some testing over the weekend, so I guess I'll find out if they're good or bad, haha.

I use a deck similar to this and its absolutely brutal. People will take damage every time they exist. They will hate you for it, so multiplayer tends to put a massive planet sized target on youManabarbsPersonal SanctuaryEnlightened Tutor just to be safe

Thanks for the suggestions ToolmasterOfBrainerd!

What do you think I should cut off in order to add the suggested cards?

I thought about using Grim Lavamancer and Searing Blaze, but I concluded it would not be as good as it sounds since I am not running fetch lands. Is it still worth it even without fetches?

And what should I cut off to add the Pyrostatic Pillar? Would it be ok to swap them for the 4x Red Elemental Blast? I am not so sure about this change because the meta at my LGS is full of blue decks, but what you said about trading the FoW for a card makes sense!

It's a bit risky to play 4 Fireblast because drawing 2 means you usually won't be able to play the second. There's enough Deathrite Shaman and Delver of Secrets  Flip in the meta that Searing Blaze almost always has a target. Grim Lavamancer is also a popular choice because it's repeated burn rather than 1-shot burn.

For your sideboard, you will want answers to hate cards, counters, and possibly combos. However keep in mind that casting a sideboard card means you are not casting a burn spell, so you're doing less burning. So even though Red Elemental Blast stops force of will, then force of will is still trading with one of your cards, which is good for the blue player.

Pyrostatic Pillar is a good choice for beating storm decks. Storm is faster usually but cannot win as long as pillar is on the board.

Hope this helps! Welcome to legacy!

Hi, multimedia

Thx for comments, suggestion and upvote!

Primer - the idea of creating a more detailed description of the interactions and gameplay - Primer, has long been wandering in my head. Since English is not my native language it will require me a lot of free time which I do not have at that moment. Work and family on the first place, MTG and other my hobby on second. But someday in the not too distant future, I will find time to create it.


Thx again for all your suggestions!

  • Strip Mine & Wasteland - I dont quite sure that deck need more land hate cards and coloress non basic lands in it, I was happy enough with Shivan Harvest.

  • Ankh of Mishra - was in deck on early stages but was cut. Zo-Zu the Punisher much better imho. 1st - devotion. 2nd - he is goblin. 3rd - being a creature is not a minus it is a plus, even with all burn board wipes.

Hi, Hybrow

Thank you for comment and suggestions!

Mana Geyser - mana never been too much problem for the deck, my playgroup is mostly three players so this one doesnt work well.

Grinning Ignus - nombo with too many cards like Spellshock, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Pyrostatic Pillar.

Warchief Giant - too high cmc and as I say before my palygroup is mostly three players.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle - nice land, several times was in maybeboard but it enters battlefield tapped and it is too much if you ask my oppinion.

Descent of the Dragons - not bad card was in deck at early stages but was dropped out cuz almost everytime was used as Mogg Infestation wich is plain better.

Hanweir Battlements - here for haste ability cuz I dont like Hall of the Bandit Lord - enters tapped, Flamekin Village - have same problem as Hall.

Hanweir Garrison - was in deck before but was cut cuz too be really effective it needs haste and most time it was just one creature drop for .
