Remorseless Punishment Discussion

Love it. The sideboard is good for that pesky red deck running around, and you have a good target for a free spell off Wildfire Eternal I was tinkering with Remorseless Punishment but yours is way better. If I may, drop it to 3 Wildfire Eternal and drop all the Vizier of Many Faces for 4 Enigma Drake. The drake will always be at a high power in your deck, and the vizier is useless on an empty board, or a board with a single creature if that creature gets killed when you cast. I realize that won't be the case often, but the drake is probably stronger a higher portion of the time. I say go to 3 wildfire because if you happen to be out of cards his ability is meh, and at 4 mana he is lackluster without a free cast. Also with the meta right now, everyone is running Chandra's Defeat and he is easily removed as a result. Merely my opinion, still upvoting because so many decks I see like this have no plan for that red deck and you have it in spades. Kudos

Until rotation Remorseless Punishment is pretty awesome for free. So is Baral's Expertise into another Wildfire Eternal

It's been a while since I've checked in and WOW! Thank you so much for all the feedback and upvotes! It really means a lot to me that it has inspired so many people to make similar decks =D

So a quick update. I haven't been keeping up to date with my decks and replies because unfortunately my most fun and entertaining decks were stolen, including this one T.T After that, I couldn't bring myself to start over, so I liquidated my remaining collection and ended my MTG journey. I was honestly thinking of doing this before some of my decks were stolen, but this would have been the deck to keep no matter what.

I might remake this deck at some point when I have extra funds just to have a fun deck whenever I run into another player, but for now I'll take a back seat.

As for this deck and any edits moving forward. I'll probably leave it as is and put any new cards I feel fit the theme into the "Maybeboard". I know some suggestion might make a better deck overall, but since I don't have this deck anymore, I'm going to have this deck as a template for creative minds to improve on =)

@AlexKalt - Remorseless Punishment is awesome and fits the deck theme to a T! Adding it to the pile.

@SaltySpecula - Tempt with Discovery Is a neat EDH card! Adding it to the pile. Unfortunately I haven't seen any EDH decks with this theme.

@akkd - Blackmail is a great and fun option. Cheap mana as well. Adding it to the pile.

I don't think Hymn to Tourach quite hits the theme for me. While the effect is random, the opponent never gets a choice when playing this in any situation. Though this is only my opinion. Please don't hesitate to add it into your own variation =)

@Illusificate - You may recommend any card you feel meets the theme of this deck. If I agree, I'll definitely add it in the maybeboard options =)

I like this deck so far, your opponents might not though, with all the sac effects. Heh.

I would be mostly worried about spells like Vandalblast. Maybe the occasional Artificer's Hex. I'd recommend Dash Hopes, Remorseless Punishment, and Scour from Existence for artifact and enchantment removal.

You should replace Remorseless Punishment with Torment of Hailfire because when u start getting really mana-heavy you can drop that for X being a lot.

Remorseless Punishment and Ruinous Path are cycling out. Never and Trespasser's Curse might be reasonable replacements

Nice idea, have you considered running Remorseless Punishment for aditional win conditions? Also I have found that with this kind of deck you burn through cards in your own hand fairly quickly so you might consider some draw spells. Looks fun though, I might try a B/W Control variation of this.
