Rite of the Raging Storm


Creatures named Lightning Rager can't attack you or planeswalkers you control.

At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player puts a 5/1 red Elemental creature token named Lighnting Rager onto the battlefield. It has trample, haste, and "At the beginning of the end step, sacrifice this creature."

Rite of the Raging Storm Discussion

Rite of the Raging Storm maybe? Tempt with Vengeance/Sylvan Offering effects could work. In my kitty deck I have a Ryusei, the Falling Star as a secondary dragon-friendly sweeper, since my commander and kitten tokens all fly.

Illusionist's Bracers double your ping and card draw. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Disrupt Decorum and Rite of the Raging Storm are all good push the politics of the table. It may be worth reverting to basic lands on any of your comes into play tapped lands, or taps of colorless (they just slow early game); if that doesn't work invest in a few of the check or filter or pain lands. When going for the ping decks, be ready to take early aggression. Tilonalli's Summoner has been my early board state MVP.

Looks like a fun build! I run Crown of Doom and Rite of the Raging Storm in my Queen Marchesa deck to help encourage my opponents to go after each other when they have the crown.

Rite of the Raging Storm could push the politics at the table.

Rite of the Raging Storm seemed like a neat fit.

I used to think likewise about mana rocks, but I'm back to test them because they really put you ahead faster than green ramp spells.
Sol Ring is just way too powerful not to use it, especially in a deck with costs that require so much generic mana.
In the best scenario where Rampant Growth, Sakura-Tribe Elder or Wayfarer's Bauble (or Gruul Signet that matter) are on your opening hand they will make you have four mana by turn three and you don't/didn't have so many important cards for four mana, you need to hit higher mana to start developing your game, the deck average mana cost is just too high for +1 mana spell to be meaningful.
Worn Powerstone and Overgrowth compared to Cultivate add the same amount amount of mana but if you cast them on turn three, with Worn Powerstone and Overgreowth you'll be on six mana by turn four providing you have a fourth land in your hand but with cultivate you'll only be on five mana. Overgrowth after turn three will usually be placed on a untapped land and you'll be able to use its mana on that same turn.

About Rite of the Raging Storm. In my meta the board will be starting to get scary by that point. There can be many problematic creatures like Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, The Gitrog Monster and others. All that Rite of the Raging Storm does is just lowering other players life slowly, later it can be good to get triggers from Omnath, Where Ancients Tread and Warstorm Surge, but you can't keep the elemental for blocking purposes or to mass them for posterior use. You'll still have your doors open for anyone, and you know what? they will be pissed that they can't attack you with the token so they will attack you with their own creatures for sure. At that point a Deadly Recluse will probably be more useful (all of this on my meta, maybe your games play out differently). So all of this means that in your deck Rite of the Raging Storm is a late game card and for a late game card is not that good.

Wow, thanks again! I'll be sure to think through all of this.

I took out a lot of the mana rocks because I figured I'd rather get more landfall drops than have artifacts sit on the table. It seems you think otherwise?

Also, can you explain a little more why I'll be looking for survival when Rite of the Raging Storm comes out?
