Engineofindifference on Threw this together in a Hour

1 month ago

This is pretty good for being thrown together in an hour, but there's a lot of cards you can throw in to just make it strictly better so I'm just gonna throw as many of them as I can think of at you, hopefully that comes off as helpful. I'm gonna try to limit myself to stuff that's been printed recently and/or isn't too expensive.

Cut Cancel for Dissolve or Counterflux they're both just straight better, although counterflux is a bit harder mana-wise.

Take out Divination for Jace's Ingenuity or Shamanic Revelation or even Mulldrifter.

Explosive Vegetation just got reprinted and is an awesome ramp card, other good ones: Kodama's Reach/Cultivate, Sakura-Tribe Elder, and Coiling Oracle.

Turn / Burn is great at removing anything that doesn't have counters on it.

Reclamation Sage, Trygon Predator and Acidic Slime take care of a lot of problematic permanents and can't be countered with your general out.

Bogardan Hellkite and Mistcutter Hydra are like a dollar each and beat some serious face.

Prophet of Kruphix is friggin Prophet of Kruphix, why is this deck not just 99 Prophets of Kruphix?

Sol Ring it's in every EDH precon for a reason son.

Atarka, World Render Because Dragons.

Stubborn Denial if you're doing things right it's a hard counter most of the time.

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed GRUUL WANT SMASH!

Malignus maybe it's just me, but giving this trample just seems hilarious.

Savage Knuckleblade nobody playing standard seems to have any love for him, but he's still a nice beater.

Bane of Progress if you want your friends to hate you.

Cards to cut, although you probably know most of this already:

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn isn't EDH legal so I'd ask your friend if it's okay first.

Dragon Fodder 1/1's aren't really gonna do much in commander other than die horribly.

Opaline Unicorn no self respecting green deck runs colorless ramp that isn't sol ring.

Scorchwalker, Zhur-Taa Swine, Rubblebelt Maaka, and Titan's Strength EDH games tend to run a bit longer than 60 card so one-off bursts of power aren't quite as good as stuff that sticks around and beats face until somebody deals with it.

Anyway that's all I got hope it's helpful, good luck with your EDH-ing!

Scorchwalker is not a standard playable card.

slovakattack on Heartless Summoning Combo [Modern]

Shweet. Rakdos Aggro really isn't my thing, but herewego:

Have you considered abusing the (in my opinion) criminally underplayed power of Nova Chaser? It seems like a T2 Nova Chaser is totally possible in this deck.

Ex: T1, Flamekin Brawler (important, because it doesn't die to Heartless Summoning).

T2, Heartless Summoning.

T3: Priest of Urabrask for 1, giving you a total of 5 mana, drop 1 for Mass Hysteria (I highly doubt any creature they put out will be bigger or more aggressive than yours, so it's a net gain for you.) and drop 2 for Nova Chaser, champion flamkin brawler, swing for 9 trample. Spend the other 2 perhaps on... Hellrider, for even more aggro?

Great filler cards for this deck would be things like Flamekin Harbinger, to ensure you hit your chasers, or Thunderblust perhaps. Scorchwalker is a pretty sexy bloodrush. Heartless Summoning is great, but if you wanted to get rid of it for some reason, Smokebraider is pretty sexy, as is Generator Servant.

...I kinda wanna make an elemental tribal now xD

xiao.wen on Naya Hexproof Enchantress

Kor Spiritdancer is strictly better than mesa. the only playable modern enchantress really. should really probably consider Ethereal Armor Dragon Mantle maybe even Gift of Orzhova too on the aura end if you havent already. Hammerhand is the slot id point to. that card is annoying and rude, but i feel modern is too powerful that youre way too likely to just get 2-for-1ed on it so often that the bonuses you get for landing it half the time or something dont work out numbers-wise in the end. especially with the low number of creatures you are running. the selesnya aura blitz that resembles this a bit relies on the hexproof aspect of the creature bodies to prevent spot removal creating 2 and 3 for 1s.

as a strategy, its a brutal cannon when it fires, but its vulnerable enough stacking all those permanents on the board that alot of the competitive boros stuff always retreats a bit into burn.

theres another way to go with this that ive tinkered around with a bit that might have some ideas for you to consider too: Fencing Ace Boros Swiftblade and Mirran Crusader. they leave open a bunch of really degenerate things you can do with weird tools like Scorchwalker (cant be countered) and some of the swords and utility lands. dont forget your lands! Slayers' Stronghold is fantastic in this boros blitz!

Gleam of Battle is a little slow, but a one-of might not be off the mark.

i'd definitely find room for at least 1 Sunhome Guildmage (for a Truefire Paladin maybe? they're both mana-intensive and cost 2)

also, if you come across a Ride Down you might enjoy that, especially paired with a bloodrush'd Scorchwalker on somebody >:) you could swap it for a warleader's helix?

Bear in mind that Scorchwalker won't trigger any Heroic since its an activated ability and not a spell being cast.

I would play Launch the Fleet to trigger as many Heroes as you want and to fill your field with soldiers!

This isn't post-rotation already, is it? Then what about Boros Charm ?
