Repeated Reverberation Discussion
1 month ago
Very cool deck idea. I like the Repeated Reverberation piece... that's a nice touch.
My thought for sideboard would be to add Cavalcade of Calamity . I bet whatever deck they're playing, they'll have an answer to Chandra, Awakened Inferno in game 2, before you have a chance to use his ability with the reverberations. Then you'll be almost out of answers and game over. If you switch your strategy with Cavalcade, they'll get wrecked pretty quickly game 2.

Let's look at it: This is not like a Nexus deck or Esper control deck with only one way to win. It's closer to Jeskai superfriends. Sakhan is our most convenient and quick method to close out the game, but it is very much unnecessary against the slower matchup, which are exactly the ones that tend to have unmoored ego. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame + Novice Pyromancer can muster up a fast clock, and Chandra, Awakened Inferno is another very resilient win condition (remember that emblems can't be removed in any way). Besides, post board we have the potential to take a more aggressive of a line with Cavalier of Flame and Warboss. And if everything goes wrong and we somehow end up hard-locked behind control's counterspells (which is very unlikely with Teferi, Time Raveler in the format), we've got the Banefire for a reason. In the end, bringing in Unmoored Ego against this deck would be a mistake because our threats are too diversified for it to be worth the tempo loss. Instead of playing Ego, the opponent would be better off just jamming a threat.
The Elderspell can present a problem, especially if you're playing this deck and not aware of it. It's not directly game-winning, because by the time they can profitably cast it on 2 or 3 of our planeswalkers, with Chandra's Regulator and Repeated Reverberation in the deck, we've usually already generated a lot of advantage with our planeswalkers that having them destroyed in one fell swoop isn't actually backbreaking. Still, against any deck that can support BB, especially post-board, we have to be aware and careful. I try to never drop a fourth walker onto the field if I can in matchups where The Elderspell is a possibility. I got blown out by it in my first test game where I got too excited spamming walkers, but it's not too hard to play around once one remind themselves "if their deck's got black, better watch my back".
The biggest problem card I ran into, by far, is Mass Manipulation . If they elderspell three planeswalkers, it's bad but we can rebuild. Against that deck, we board out a lot of our slower Chandras (Awakened inferno, Fire Artisan) and just go race mode. Banefire goes a long way towards finishing the job.
And sorry for writing this much. I guess I'm too used to writing long sideboard guides...

TypicalTimmy I initially looked into The Chain Veil , but the card is pushing $30 and is a significant mana investment, so I opted out of it. It's a shame, because it would be awesome to drop tons of emblems.
Hoobynobber7395 I will consider this one. Malignus is awesome, but I do not need more creatures... perhaps I will swap out one of my other elementals for him! (Or maybe it is time I accept that I do not really need Sword of the Animist ...)

Honestly a Repeated Reverberation might be a fun thing to consider as your SS to pump out those emblems, it would even be fantastic in the maindeck as well.
No data for this card yet.
