Runechanter's Pike Discussion

Zimmers_0 on The Deckwatch [Home Base]

Has anyone ever made a self mill deck based on instant/sorceries to ramp up up creatures and other spells? Something like Enigma Drake from today's spoils, Spellheart Chimera, Runechanter's Pike, Rise from the Tides, Bedlam Reveler, Disciple of the Ring?

Anyone think this is something worth making?

I've got a few suggestions depending on how you want to play your table.

More fun? Wild Ricochet Steam Augury and Illusionist's Gambit make for more table interaction that can get a little wild.

Want to run a little more cleaner? Rewind and Syncopate are good counter spells to throw in, maybe adding a Isochron Scepter to make your Twincast and Reverberate a constant threat, draw cards like Blue Sun's Zenith and Stroke of Genius will help keep you with steady answers.

Want to blow your friends away? Comet Storm and Increasing Vengeance with Mizzix can get out of control, Insurrection is a great way to end a game if your table runs a little stompy. And I'm a huge fan of using Runechanter's Pike on Mizzix to remove someone from the game with commander damage.

Either way excellent deck thus far!! Mizzix a great commander to build around,

First off: neat deck, I'll be using a lot of your cards to run in my Baral deck. Mine's also Eldrazi though... Anyway, I would suggest putting in Mystifying Maze, it's like the other maze but worse. Worth it though. Also, why do you run Runechanter's Pike? I think you could use something more effective (and protective) like Darksteel Plate or Swiftfoot Boots. I hate giving too much suggestions but (if possible) put a few more Jace's in there, Jace, Architect of Thought would be my go-to Jace for this deck. Well, I hope you found this worth reading, love your deck, peace out.

Man i feel kinda embarassed, i have no idea what to say, your deck is pretty good as is. I have some ideas on just some varying cards you would like and I don't want to go stating the "you should have them because they're good" cards. Well i guess some suggestions would be Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Thing in the Ice  Flip (those two are just for lols), Galvanic Bombardment but only if your willing to get a play set, Spellheart Chimera, Mercurial Geists, and Runechanter's Pike im sorry if this doesn't help but good luck on your deck dude

Hey fun deck. I got an idea or three..Infiltrate, Artful Dodge, Slip Through Space, Shadow Rift, Spellheart Chimera, Runechanter's Pike.... Teferi's Veil + Obliterate is an old school combo that can save your creatures and give you extra ETB triggers. It might not be good enough, but it sounds hilarious enough. Archaeomancer, Izzet Chronarch, Charmbreaker Devils. I love how Sharding Sphinx goes exponential if you can get through with the thopters. It might be cool to have Thopter Spy Network too, since you are already using thopters. Happy gathering!

Flagellum on Baral or Talrand?

dlamars: My Talrand deck was a "Polymorph bomb" style deck utilizing 5-6 big creature bombs like Tidespout Tyrant, Stormtide Leviathan, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, ect. I would tuck a drake to put one of those beasties out using Polymorph/ Proteus Staff. Most of the time people would just scoop from all the bounce effects I ran. If that didn't work then a Runechanter's Pike strapped to a drake was for backup. Coat of Arms could've worked too.

Always a fan of deathtouch themed decks, +1. Here are a few suggestions:

-4 Pharika's Chosen, +4 Ruthless Ripper

-4 Deadly Recluse, +4 Narnam Renegade (rely on removal to deal with flying)

-4 Runechanter's Pike, +4 Sharpened Pitchfork (unless you add more instants & sorceries)

Since deathtouch applies to all damage a creature deals, Nature's Way and Rabid Bite can be just as effective as Murder if you don't mind trading instant speed for 2cmc; Clear Shot's an option as well. Fighting (Prey Upon, Pit Fight, Ulvenwald Tracker, Setessan Tactics) also has the same effect.

There's also something to be said for swapping a few equipment cards out for Midnight Charm so first strike comes as a surprise.

Rzepkanut on Izzet over yet?

Rise from the Tides, Docent of Perfection  Flip & Metallurgic Summonings will help make an army for you. Runechanter's Pike can deliver some epic beatings for cheap.
