Raging River


Whenever one or more creatures you control attack, each defending player divides all creatures without flying he or she controls into a "left" pile and a "right" pile. Then, for each attacking creature you control, choose "left" or "right." That creature can't be blocked this combat except by flying creatures and creatures in a pile with the chosen label.

Yes, it's true that some cards have even longer wording.

As proposed, it's 53 words.

For comparison, Raging River has 54 words.

Remember that just because it's not the worst doesn't mean it's good.

Hey AlistarFiend! This deck looks great, I can see why you've created such a popular source with your take on Edgar Markov. Lately I've been playing a Hyper Markov deck that takes eminence to the extreme with 50 vampire creatures. What is the main drawback that keeps you from adding more vampire creatures to your deck? Regarding specific cards, Conqueror's Flail seems like a good card, how has it worked out for you? I'm also curious how Raging River works and how you use it. Thank you AlistarFiend!

Hi McToters

Thanks for the suggestions! Both Chaosphere and Raging River seem to make a great Bedlam impression. I might only include the Chaosphere, because I'm not sure this decks wants three copies of this sort of similar effect. Also, I didn't know the card Gratuitous Violence, this card is amazing! It's basically a one sided Furnace of Rath for creatures, for just one generic mana more, it's going right into the deck! Also, I just died yesterday to Insurrection, so it's going right in as well! hahaha

On the other hand, I'm not sure I want to go too deep in the token generating effects. I think this deck (with the current build, that is) would work better relying on Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor mostly. Also, Valduk, Keeper of the Flame is in there mostly as a Plan B, just because it works so well with equipment. I do like Shared Animosity a lot, though, which is more or less a second copy of Coat of Arms for attackers. And a bad version of an amazing card is still pretty good! :D I will say that it's quite reasonable to take Varchild as a tokens Commander, though. It's just, I like more the Voltron strategy for myself, but you could get a sick tokens deck, in which case I would also consider Purphoros, God of the Forge

Thanks a lot for commenting and for the suggestions. It's been super helpful! :D

Awesome build! I've been wanting to build this dude since I saw him spoiled. To make blocking even more confusing you can throw in a Chaosphere and maybe Raging River. Insurrection is a sweet late game move too. There is also Gratuitous Violence for doubling damage as well. Also, Firecat Blitz is probs my favorite token generator in the game. That flashback cost calls for desperate measures but it plays into what Red likes to do. If Valduk is one of your main token generators it may be worth having a Sundial of the Infinite so in the off-chance your making a bunch with him you can keep them too. In the vein of survivor tokens, Shared Animosity and Kindred Charge can be deadly (and then Sundial can work with Kindred Charge also).

You may have convinced me into buckling down and building Varchild! I never started as a red player but in recent years I have embraced it fully! Thanks for the inspiration. Hope the suggestions help!

Hey there, saw the video Muddstah did featuring your deck. I am long time Boros player myself so I had a few questions about some cards in your deck. How have Dreamstone Hedron, Raging River, and Thran Temporal Gateway performed for you? Raging seems interesting, had never thought about it. Also wondering if Dreamstone is worth the 6 cmc slot. Also Impact Resonance seems interesting, something I might consider for my sunforger decks.

In the video a Homeward Path would have been really helpful. I can confirm that with these large creature decks you really want to have that in there.

Anyway, Id love to hear your thoughts on the deck, whats working, whats not.

You can check out some of my Aurelia decks right here if youd like.

Neat deck! Seems like a really fun archetype to play against at a table.

Cut suggestions:

  • Faithless Looting is a 3 for 2 you can play twice...not very splashy and the value isn't great. If I were playing this deck I think I'd usually prefer to draw something that isn't this.

Add suggestions:

  • Raging River is awesome in this deck. It'll help you get favorable matchups when you attack, and it makes the game properly weird when you do!

Hey RobertNixilis, thanks for your comment. Those are awesome suggestions. Raging River looks very intriguing and fitting for my deck. I'll see if I can get my hands on a copy. I have thought about adding Neheb, the Eternal myself already, but haven't had the guts to try him out until now.

I have been playing and constantly adapting this deck for 3 years now, so the list is pretty tight. Do you have any suggestions of possible cuts for the two cards you suggested? Maybe cut Ogre Geargrabber for Neheb, the Eternal, as I will still have Vulshok Battlemaster who does more or less the same as the Ogre?

I only play paper magic, no MTGO. So yes, I have it all foiled out in paper.
