Runechanter's Pike Discussion

You could be a jerk and run Proteus Staff in your deck, guaranteeing the top 4 cards of your library are either additional combat phase cards or extra turn cards. Either get the Stoneforge Mystic out early or remove it from the deck (can be replaced with Steelshaper's Gift) and basically once you have lockdown you win. Might also want to consider running a Runechanter's Pike and Enlightened Tutor.

Urborg is great as a 4 of, Inkmoth Nexus + Runechanter's Pike could also be a quality inclusion. Also 3-4x Dark Confidant would help greatly to keep your hand full. As much as I wish Waste Not could fit, it really doesn't. It's better to run 1 drop enchantments that go direct damage routes. Phyrexian Obliterator is such a house, but I think the Man-Land/Bitterblossom + Pike would be your best hope, that way it opens up the way for more removal like Slaughter Pact or Dismember. Duress could be an excellent inclusion against Storm, or other popular combo/control decks (Sideboard). But, take what you will from these suggestions and let me know what you think about them! Feel free to comment on my decks, and have a nice day!

Hmm, interesting. I can definitely see a blue splash for some draw power, and more control. I do worry that Treasure Cruise would interfere with Runechanter's Pike, hence why I only have one Murderous Cut as well. I'll ponder on that for a bit, but I will swap one one of the Disfigure for Darkblast and see how I like it. The reason I went with Disfigure is because it nails those early aggro threats like Goblin Guide and Monastery Swiftspear. Good call though, thanks!

Some things that will make your Spellheart Chimera even more painful:

Fall of the Hammer: For when absolutely obliterating something once just isn't enough.

Runechanter's Pike: For those pesky deathtouch blockers.

Rush of Blood: For life-gain decks.

-2x Runechanter's Pike, +1x Sword of Fire and Ice +1 Sword of Feast and Famine. These two are much more reliable and don't die to graveyard hate. This also allow you to play a couple Treasure Cruise, which you should.

Yep I realized my mistake after posted it. I am use to legacy.

I know its been said but Run Vampire Lacerator instead of the Sangrophage

2 Sword of Fire and Ice Or Runechanter's Pike is better than it looks first strike is really nice.

Toxic Deluge is also really good and you can pay any life helping Death's Shadow out a lot

Vampire Nighthawk is good if you need life gain but I don't think you need any.

@EDHTest: You are right on Order of Succession. I really want to add it back, i tend to cut this card first when i want to try some other cards.

Vedalken Shackles: i have mixed feelings about this card. i never had the right situation to be able to use it effectively.

I tend to be on other side of the dilema about Flash of Insight and Dig Through Time versus Runechanter's Pike and Cephalid Coliseum. I could also add Treasure Cruise.

Next event, i'll switch thoses cards and see how it goes.

Wurmcoil Engine would be amazinggg here. The Runechanter's Pike would be under whelming considering you wont get much out of it.
