Treasure Hunt Swans of Bryn Argoll Seismic Assault

Goggles are way to slow, because the only target you have are the anger. But if you add swans, you turn anger into card advantage as well. Seismic is just a pure upgrade to molten. You don't have to worry about getting to three mana, because of how many lands you have.

I would say that the rakdos list is somewhat weak Hellhole Flailer & Rakdos Cackler have strictly better versions, if you intend to use them as beaters (like Goblin Guide) - you could of course abuse them with something like Rage Forger, but in the end the deck just doesn't seem to have a clear plan, at least to me.

If you are willing to add some more recursive creatures like Gravecrawler (as black has plenty such options), you could build an aristocrats deck with 4x Viscera Seer + 2x other sacrifice outlet & 4x Blood Artist & 4x Zulaport Cutthroat
And then alter it slowly into the deck that was called "next level abzan".
In the maintime (due to the life leech) you can use spells like Imp's Mischief to protect your stuff - since without single target removal the deck is hard to deal with to say the least.
Maybe some number of Duress to combat both removal and planeswalkers.
...the options are endless.
(and there are nice mass reanimation spells, like Immortal Servitude)

However i would try to stay clear of Smallpox as it works best in WB planeswalker decks - and stuff like Liliana of the Veil is not cheap.
And you definietly should not play Pack Rat in such a build, as both compete for the same resources, cards in your hand.
The rat is best in Life from the Loam + Squee, Goblin Nabob builds - at least in my opinion, where its played alongside stuff like Zombie Infestation & Seismic Assault

True, but if you activate Molten Vortex 3 times or more, it starts being overpriced compared to Seismic Assault. Also, you can deal more damage in one turn with Assault and Life from the Loam than with Vortex and Loam.

VaultSkirge, I agree to some extent. My issue with Seismic Assault is the 3 cmc.

Molten Vortex is good, but Seismic Assault is better.

So, I know this may be a reach, but I've got a Seismic Assault deck I'm trying to trade. Everything on this list is what I've got except for the Leylines, instead I have some Simian Guides. Best Deck In Modern. Not Gonna Lie. (44 Lands)

If you are interested in single cards from it too then that's cool.

I'm looking for stuff like Bloodghast, Blood Crypt, Street Wraith, and Wooded Foothills or Blackcleave Cliffs.
