Red Elemental Blast Discussion
6 hours ago
ay.lobo: I think your list looks good, however it's still missing a few staples like Mox Diamond, Mana Vault, Lotus Petal as well as a few cards I'm surprised aren't in the list like Abrade, Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast to name a few. And I didn't see any mention of them in exclusions section of your primer.
If cards are being omitted purely on a budget basis, please put together a budgetless list and submit that instead. I appreciate that you've put a bunch of work into your primer for (I'm guessing) your paper list, however the fact that you've written a primer for this list, just like budget, should not be the bottleneck for lists posted here. An example of this would be my Saffi Eriksdotter list - Just Stay Dead. I own the paper version of that list (complete with primer) however I have a second list just for here. I would highly recommend going about it this way.

Omnath is completely commander dependant, after all the goal of the deck is to combo off with him, so there is not much you can do, so you have to work around it. You need to protect him better and get a bit more recursion because Omnath at 7 CMC is expensive enough.
Against removals you can use Sylvan Safekeeper and Heroic Intervention and there is always Asceticism which is a bit more expensive both money and mana wise.
For recursion Seasons Past is one of my favorite cards lately, easilly you get five to seven cards out of it. Greenwarden of Murasa is another no brainer because of the tribal theme. Deadwood Treefolk works similarly, it sacrifices itself and you don't have to exile it, but only brings back creatures. Paleoloth is another creature I though about, the creature by itself is kinda bad, but with Omnath you can trigger it the same turn you cast it.
Some creatures are too big to be killed with damage or plainly indestructible, so I run stuff like Scour from Existence and Brittle Effigy. Spitebellows is a damage based removal but you can get a lotta triggers for just three mana.
You should cut Door of Destinies and Vanquisher's Banner, you only have 14 elemental spells (counting Omnath) so you won't be getting enough triggers out of them to make them worth their spot in the deck.
Animist's Awakening is just bad, keep in mind you will be getting about one land for every three mana you spend on the X (there are many other effects taking lands out of the deck). It would be good if were producing limitless mana, but if you already have infinite mana you don't really need so many lands, anyway it's a worse Genesis Wave. Better options are Traverse the Outlands and Boundless Realms or the Genesis Wave.
Stuff like Exploration and Wayward Swordtooth work amazingly in these decks, specially when you combine it with the Oracle of Mul Daya and Courser of Kruphix you already run and Ramunap Excavator if you were to include it (feels like a cheat with cards like Evolving Wilds).

Apologies for the delay, I had to write this twice.One time mana sources make a lot of sense since you do need 11 mana to play your commander and equip all in the same turn.Basalt Monolith, Grim Monolith, Lion's Eye Diamond, Mana Vault, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Seething Song, Lotus Bloom, Lotus Petal, Treasonous Ogre, Vessel of Volatility, Simian Spirit Guide
EquipmentHammer of Nazahn, Helm of the Host, Lightning Greaves all good but how do you feel about Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault backup strategy? Sword of the Animist is a good equipment for this strategy as well but depending on the table may not be fast enough.
Love the counter package, no Dualcaster Mage?Fork, Burnout, Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Reverberate, Ricochet Trap, Glorious End, and of course Possibility Storm. Not a big fan of Veilstone Amulet in cedh but the makeup of your local meta will make or break this card. Active Volcano is probably too much.
Maybe too many colorless lands? I think you could cut one land overall but I understand you want to hit each land drop. Ancient Tomb, Buried Ruin, Cavern of Souls, City of Traitors, Command Beacon, Crystal Vein, Dwarven Ruins, Gemstone Caverns, 25xMountain, Sandstone Needle, Scorched Ruins, Sequestered Stash
Kuldotha Forgemaster is a good way to tutor the equipment into play.
Sphere of Resistance is a fantastic protection card but can make it easier for others to combo if you leave it out.

I would also recommend some Enchantments as well. With the amount of mana you'll be getting from Selvala, Helix Pinnacle might be a decent option as a backup win condition. Going with the Prowling Serpopard theme, Leyline of Lifeforce would help prevent the counterpells from removing the things you want to stick.
Finally, some quality creatures: Craterhoof Behemoth to help close out the game, Omnath, Locus of Mana because he gets huge, stores mana for future big plays, and doubles your mana with Selvala, and Ghalta, Primal Hunger because a 12/12 for two mana sounds awesome.
I don't know what kind of budget you're going for with this deck, but I'll leave my suggestions here if you want them.

Thanks! I was actually going to ask if you had a list somewhere, it sounded interesting. Looking it over you have a lot of cards that I'm thinking of adding. Boros Charm Greed Isolated Chapel all should be in my deck soonish. I feel like I need to make room for Whip of Erebos. Mana Tithe is very interesting. Looks like it could be a decent way to have a counter spell. I was also looking at Red Elemental Blast since everyone runs blue.
Glad to see someone else enjoying Licia! Your deck looks like a lot of fun!

LVL_666 Been thinking of my deck a bit and realize my biggest issue is counterspells. Having someone counter Zacama is harsh. The most I paid for Zacama one time was 17 mana just to have it countered. So, Ill update the deck later, but wanted to let you know what cards Ill be adding. Not sure what I need to remove just yet, but look into getting a Cavern of Souls, Guttural Response, Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, and maybe Null Brooch (pretty decent if you have no hand)

Today's previews were a mixed batch; first, for the positives: Imperial Recruiter was in dire need of a reprint, so it being reprinted is very awesome. I did not need a reprint of Pillage, but having alternate artwork for it is very nice. The reprints of Red Elemental Blast and Blue Elemental Blast are very nice, as well, especially with their new artwork.
With that being said, Eladamri's Call would be an amazing reprint, as it is one of the best creature-searching cards in the game.
On the other side, Gisela and the red Akroma did not at all need reprints; it would have been much better to reprint Sigarda and Akroma's Memorial, the latter of which very badly needs a reprint. I am especially displeased with the reprint of Blood Moon, as that card is supremely unfun to play against, and this reprint will make it less expensive and, therefore, more abundant.
While a reprint of Vindicate will lower its price, I really hope that it does not lower the price of the original promo version, which I purchased for $20 (at one point, it was worth over $100, but it currently is worth only $40, although that is still more than what I paid for it).
Overall, I would say that this set has been more positive than negative, thus far, so I hope that the remaining cards are as good as those that were revealed today.
