Caged Sun cus mana and +1/+1 is pretty good

Ruby Medallion

The More Monkeys Route

Sundial of the Infinite = more monkeys

Mirror Gallery = MORE MONKEYS

You know how you get MORE monkeys than that? more combat phases!!

Aggravated Assault

Sword of Feast and Famine

Seize the Day

World at War

Fury of the Horde

ETB effects

Okay okay maybe for some reason you don't want 50 Ragavans and you are focusing on ETB effects...then WHERE IS YOUR Panharmonicon??? IS BRAGO STILL USING IT FOR SOME REASON?!?!?

Impact Tremors is good but I like me some Warstorm Surge

You know what makes a lot of ETB effects? You are playing mono-red Krenko, Mob Boss

He's called the boss for a reason, you are going to have to make some little guys for him

Hordeling Outburst, Goblin Rally, Mogg War Marshal, Beetleback Chief, Siege-Gang Commander, Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder


I can tell that you are playing voltron so you might want to consider Godo, Bandit Warlord even though you dont have any other Bushido Warriors

Argentum Armor

Basilisk Collar

Champion's Helm

Loxodon Warhammer

Inquisitor's Flail

Memo617 on Dragonstorm 1st turn ftw

And just Btw the deck is not modern legal, you can either change it by going to edit>format>casual. You can keep your deck Modern you need to take out Ruby Medallion, Rite of Flame and Ruby Medallion, which are all essential to this deck so I recommend changing it in your settings.

Overall nice deck!!!

Brion Stoutarm is a good way to get around chump-blockers and swarm strategies. Additionally, Ruby Medallion and Pearl Medallion can help make your giants cheaper to cast.

Jet Medallion and Ruby Medallion to reduce the cost of cards?

Noxious Gearhulk and/ or Combustible Gearhulk for additional damage?

Seal of the Guildpact to reduce the cost of red and black spells by one and your commander by 2 mana?

Adamaro on Zirilan of the dragons

Thanks for the comment ironvulturestudios! Omen Machine & Gate to the AEther actually look like a lot of fun! Reminds me of Possibility Storm as well.

Generally dragons are the biggest spells at the table. This is an odd turn for this deck that I wasn't considering.

Otherworld Atlas I have to pass on for now, but I'll make note of it.

Last Sunday I was testing out some new cards in a 4 player game. My play group is often able to deal with Zirilan of the Claw, so I decided to test out Dragonspeaker Shaman, Ruby Medallion, & added two more mana rocks including Mind Stone & Basalt Monolith.

I was attempting to cast dragons and not rely on Zirilan of the Claw as much. The result was actually pretty good! Of course, two of my victories were with Zirilan of the Claw, but I was able to participate without my general. I finally was able to use Safe Haven, but it didn't matter since the Child of Alara was countered. Still, it would have worked.

Now I have my attention turned to Quicksilver Amulet & more mana ramp. I do want to include one more Elixir of Immortality effect. I was testing the deck without Goblin Welder & Goblin Matron and soon regretted it when I dumped my Caged Sun & Steel Hellkite due to Faithless Looting.

Lastly, Combustible Gearhulk is on my radar. In a deck like this, with high CMC, either outcome of its ability would be devastating.

For now I'll continue to test. I have a few more cards on the chopping block that I may be temporarily/permanently cutting. Thanks for all of your help everyone, I greatly appreciate it!

So I heard you need obscure mana sources? I see a few you missed.

First of all, as actual mana sources, I see a distinct lack of Marble Diamond, Fire Diamond, and Sky Diamond. Also, Manalith and Darksteel Ingot for any color.

For mana reducers, you could use Helm of Awakening, Pearl Medallion, Ruby Medallion, Sapphire Medallion, and Stone Calendar. Be careful with the Helm, though, as it benefits your opponents as well.

Also, even without lands, in a three color deck Chromatic Lantern can tap for any color.

As a final note, I'd like to introduce you to the card Teferi's Realm. If you can play that, then cast Market next turn, it pretty much seals the game.

Quite a budget deck that for sure.

Ive been playing my melek deck for about 3 years now and it is my favorite deck for sure. its gone through a lot of changes ,The most recent iteration has been storm

No matter the style of melek there are some really powerful cards to be considered, most of them on the cheap

Being able to manipulate the top of your library is extremely powerful with melek, and Brainstorm is exceptional and so is Mystical Tutor as they allow you to put instants and sorceries from your hand onto the top or from the library respectivley. Mystic Speculation is another great card for this as it is very reusable (not to mention with cost reductions the buyback gets reduced)

Sapphire Medallion and Ruby Medallion are really great for ramp, also obligatory Sol Ring mention

On the same lines of ramp Arcane Melee benefits everyone at the table, but you will for sure be getting the most value, and Jace's Sanctum affects just you and lets you srcy a bunch.

Goblin Electromancer is a great 2-Drop in the deck

If you want better card draw look no furter than Fact or Fiction and Frantic Search which if copied can let you net a huge amount of mana,Speaking of netting mana Mana Geyser off the top generates a TON of mana and lets you go crazy for a turn

In a deck with alot of instants and sorceries being able to cast them again is important so Mystic Retrieval and Past in Flames are both great inclusions

I see Mizzix of the Izmagnus is in the maybeboard and let me strongly reccomend putting her in the deck, if left unchecked she just gets out of hand.

and lastly my pet card is Stitch in Time because it must be the most flavorful izzet card made (Also copying this 5 times is REALLY GOOD)

DoragonWarrior on Breya, The Queen of Artifacts

You have a lot of high mana plains and mountain cards. I suggest looking at Pearl Medallion and Ruby Medallion to lower it a bit. Also, if you want to just keep increasing your lp to where it's really difficult for a loss, I suggest the Staff of the Sun Magus, and Staff of the Flame Magus. They do the same thing as Aetherflux Reservoir but they are mana specified.There is an Artifact staff for each element if you want to look them up. Just a few suggestions
