Shattering Spree Discussion
5 days ago
Here are some suggestions off the top of my head. You are at 63 cards. And I'm fairly sure we've had the 60 card discussion before. :D
Consider the following changes:
-1 Bomber Corps
-1 Lightning Strike
-1 Thunderous Wrath
That drops you to 60 without any major changes to the the deck.
Here are some other cards I want you to consider:
Crash Through and Faithless Looting for card draw.
You are going to need a sideboard for more competitive environments. And the sideboard also works for testing maybe cards. Take a look at Legion Loyalist, Stonewright, Tormod's Crypt, Electrostatic Bolt, Smelt, Shattering Spree, Shattering Blow, Monastery Swiftspear, Skullcrack, Collateral Damage, Barrage of Expendables, Pyrite Spellbomb and Searing Blood as either main or sideboard cards.
3 Tormod's Crypt
2 Searing Blood
2 Shattering Blow
3 ???, not sure on this one.
Let me know what you think.

Hey! I just started playing recently and after realizing I wasn't even halfway to finishing my Jund deck, I decided to flesh out a similar Rakdos control deck to yours. I like your list, especially Beseech the Queen which I may very well add to my own deck as a 1 of. It's nice for finding that 3rd or 4th Demigod of Revenge.
I would recommend going up to 2x Crumble to Dust in your sideboard. Without any other land destruction, I feel like you will really want to see this vs Tron and even vs UW control. Another possible alternative is Shatterstorm over By Force. If you like the ability to play it on 2 or 3, maybe try a 1-1 split between the two to see which serves you better when you sideboard it in. Vandalblast or Shattering Spree are options as well, though I understand Shattering Spree isn't the cheapest of cards. That being said, being able to pay just 1 to destroy 1 artifact is nice.
One last suggestion is depending on your meta, adding in a 1x or 2x Devour Flesh to your mainboard might be alright vs something like Death's Shadow and it's alright vs boggles until they get out Leyline of Sanctity as well. You can always slot it out if you don't need it in the matchup, or use it on yourself for the life gain in the most dire of situations.

I understand that your meta is mostly precons, though I playtested this against my(What I consider) fairly casual Oloro deck. What I found is that your deck is entirely way too slow, and while I was setting up value, your deck was scraping to do anything that would even impact a single turn. I could not pull a single win out of your Kess deck. Even taking a 1 land had with mine. I'm going to have to agree that storm is very go big or go home. Though, for a more casual deck, discard Kess seems like it would be loads of fun and could set up value early game. I understand the need for counters in Grixis, specially with a more control-y deck. Though I would maybe cut some. As for Kess can't allow you to reuse them on another person's turn. And on this point, I don't know how well my suggestion would work with Kess, though I have to suggest, Leyline of Anticipation. I also prefer Vandalblast to Shattering Spree, though that is going to have to be a call you make. If you play against Breya or Sharuum a lot I would consider both.

Tyvm for suggestion!
I can't argue with all the above, so I will be brief :-)

First off, I'm impressed at how well you've done with a non-meta, jank homebrew list, it looks very slow for modern but not with mana dorks and the like!
I play both decks you asked about, you're right to be running Ancient Grudge vs affinity, some alternatives or additional hate for artifacts
Thats about all you can do vs affinity in gruul colors, destroy artifacts and/or creatures
Both decks are bad matchups for you because they outspeed you by a lot, and unfortunately most of the hoser spells are in white, i.e.
As far as burn, theres not much you can do outside of leyline to prevent a Lightning Bolt in your face, you CAN however try and stabilize with cards like Feed the Clan or Obstinate Baloth, Kitchen Finks, the latter 2 which you already have plus thragtusk
especially if the burn player doesnt have access to green, where they would respond with Atarka's Command to stop the lifegain, so take care if the burn player has RG open
I feel like Shatterstorm would perform better in this deck, since you dont have to wait a turn to steel artifacts and it usuallu sweeps nearly their entire board, plus its cheaper on mana and can be cast turn 3 with a mana dork, which is usually when affinity is all in if they havent won yet
You should definitely run 4 Lightning Bolt and maybe a Searing Blaze and/or Searing Blood, since all 3 can kill an Inkmoth Nexus equipped with Cranial Plating that would otherwise be lethal, as well as major burn threats like Eidolon of the Great Revel, good ol' goblin guide and monastery swiftspear, and you can wait until they declare attacks to answer the creatures
But yea, a slower homebrew is going to have trouble with top 5 aggro decks, hope that helps your matchups against them!
Best of luck next modern tournament

BlaineTog true, but when I originally build the deck Bauble was 5 bucks. (Still the most expensive card in the deck though XD).
It's still only 15 in my home country, so it's not too bad from my perspective.
(Also Shattering Spree is only 2,5 over here.)
