Ruby Medallion Discussion

ASalesman on The Chandra Family

I have lots of different pieces of advice, choose any or none of my recommendations. These are just my thoughts on the deck.

Love the themes here, but don't be afraid to include red staples. Would take a look at some more dumb red staples like Vandalblast, Ruby Medallion, Lightning Bolt, Reverberate, Reiterate, Guttersnipe, Jaya's Immolating Inferno, Rampaging Ferocidon, Reforge the Soul, Blasphemous Act, Fireball, Blood Moon

Cheap mana rocks/ramp are important to any successful deck. Include staple artifacts like Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, and primal amulet

Though I like the pheonix theme, your planeswalkers scream "play instants/ Sorceries". I would include less Pheonixes and include more board wipes (to protect the walkers) and red cantrips (for single target removal and damage to the face). I would replace a few lands with staple mana rocks. I see what you're doing with caged sun, but I promise you will still find enough mountains even if you get rid of a few. You don't have to entirely scrap the theme, and still add some really good spells. (I personally would've made the deck more non creature based.)

If you'd like to be MORE creature based, you should look at Sarkhan walkers and some dragons instead of Jaya and some pheonixes.

Speaking on mana base: to be a little more competitive I would replace some of your weaker spells with a couple more mana-producing cards. You would like to start any game with 3 mana-producing cards in your hand, and on average you are getting 2.8 which can be low in some cases and mana screw you more often. (Mana screw is always way worse than mana flood in EDH.) Personally I would add two more mana-producing cards, and take out two non-mana-producing cards. Look at Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and decide whether or not your devotion to red calls for it.

Throwing in things like Rampaging Ferocidon and Blood Moon will counter some decks and give your opponents' more things to worry about. Excellent decks are decks with multiple threats/win cons.

Ruby Medallion and Great Furnace are not modern legal, so either change your format or swamp those cards. Probably add more burn. Hellspark Elemental I do agree, is a great card.

Really like the deck Purph is one of the commanders I would want to play if i ever felt like watching the world burn. Some suggestions I would recommend are

Removing Darksteel Ingot it feels weird in the list since you almost always want to hit your commander on turn or sooner and it doesn't really fit in the turn order.

Adding a turn rock like Fire Diamond or Ruby Medallion would probably feel better in that slot as it allows you to play purphoros on turn which can really speed up the deck.

The panoramas could probably be removed for basics as even though you are thinning the deck since they cost a mana to activate and only slow the deck down.

Evening, Art-n-Lutherie. Thank you it's fast and fun, and new EDH players love the simplistic strategy of this deck. I have ran Empty the Warrens when I first made the deck. Great card, and when used with Grinning Ignus and Ruby Medallion combo, it is an amazing card. The problem with that card in this deck is that I would play one or two spells. To maximize Empty the Warrens, you'd want to play at least 1 spell prior to this to make 4 goblins for 4 mana. Goblin Recruiter is a good card, but I want a card that can put things in my hand rather than stagnant the top of my deck with creatures when I need land. It has been pulled for Dark-Dweller Oracle, who helps draw cards, which is needed in mono-red decks.

TheBloopKing on Why Every Commander is Competitive

this is a very well made post. My personal suggestions

Every commander needs at least 8 mana rocks. Mana rocks serve a couple purposes depending on which ones you put in. Either they ramp you up mana like Hedron Archive or Mind Stone or they help you mana fix like Manalith. I run Signets simply because they do both. Also cards such as Ruby Medallion are relevant all around, including removing part of the first commander tax.

Decks should have at least a couple ways to add cards into your hands. You covered most of the blue ones such as Brainstorm

White Draw: Wall of Omens, Alms Collector, Mentor of the Meek, Aura Blast, Puresteel Paladin, and anything with "cycle on it"

Green Draw: Harmonize, Explore, Elvish Visionary, Soul's Majesty, Primordial Sage, Shamanic Revelation

Red Draw: Tormenting Voice, Wild Guess, Faithless Looting, Magmatic Insight, Cathartic Reunion, Wheel of Fate, Reforge the Soul, Expedite, and any of the guys that say "Discard a card, Draw a card"

Black Draw: Phyrexian Arena, Damnable Pact, Grim Haruspex, Sign in Blood, Ambition's Cost, Underworld Connections, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Harvester of Souls

Multi-coloured Draw: Abzan Charm, Shaman of the Great Hunt, Fathom Mage, Fevered Visions, Spiteful Visions, Painful Truths, Edric, Spymaster of Trest

Artifact Draw: Skullclamp, Staff of Nin, Mind's Eye, Mask of Memory, Howling Mine, Horn of Greed

I know I missed lots of draw but should give people an idea of what kind of draw you can access in the specific colours.

I'm running Pearl Medallion and Ruby Medallion in my build...they both really help speed up the damage/lifegain!

Hi! Cool theme, Angels are an awesome tribe to begin with. If your game-plan is simply to play big angels and smack face I think you should try to utilize this strategy more. You could use some cost reduction cards to bring down your big spells like Pearl Medallion, Jet Medallion and Ruby Medallion. Animate Dead and Necromancy also great inclusions if your looking to bring back your big threats. I would also include Gisela, the Broken Blade and Bruna, the Fading Light and last but not least Lyra Dawnbringer
