drhouse10 on Boar and Jackal

Hi,

very cool deck, I build also my own version, but decide to take more of midrange/ramp approach. If you are interested here the link: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/redgreen-combustible-gearhulk/

but there are some sub-optimal cards, that have a clear upside. Maybe check them out. Shock -> Wild Slash easy upgrade Silhana Wayfinder -> puts the card just on the top of the library, its not really a constructed card. with Once Upon a Time banned Bond of Flourishing or Seek the Wilds are very close.

Some suggestions from me: Paradise Druid -> i would go for the faster one like Llanowar Elves . so you can go Turn1: Llanowar Elves , Turn2: Rhythm of the Wild , Turn3: Champion of Rhonas -> drop a payoff. So you speed up your optimal gameplan by 1 turn.

Samut, Voice of Dissent -> more a fan of Surrak, the Hunt Caller . one mana cheaper and gives also every creature with 3 or more power haste without any effort.

Ashen Rider -> looks cute. but just works, if your plan A works and then you want go for a game ending play. i would just add castable cheap removal or sideboard it in for game 2/3. When you want go cute, then i would decide for Medomai the Ageless . the endless turns/attacks with Ilharg, the Raze-Boar is just winning on the spot, if your opp is not ready for it.

Ral, Bolas' Errand-Boy

Legendary Creature - Human Wizard

Haste

Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery that targets Ral, Bolas' Errand-Boy, you may exile Ral and return him to the battlefield before that spell resolves. Copy that spell. You may choose new targets for the copy.

When Ral, Bolas' Errand-Boy becomes exiled for the second time in a single turn, return it to the battlefield transformed.

2 / 2


Ral, Izzet Guildmaster

Legendary Planeswalker - Ral

+1 Search your library for a card named Lightning Bolt , Lightning Strike , Shock , Spark Jolt , Rift Bolt , Lightning Javelin , or Rhystic Lightning , reveal it, and put it into your hand. Shuffle your library afterward.

-5 You get an emblem with, "Whenever an instant or sorcery you control deals damage to a player, copy it. You must choose new targets for the copy."

3


Pretty straightforward. Burn your opponent to death. Actually functional as a commander.

Wild Slash is a strict upgrade over Shock . Love the list, interested to see how various Reclamation builds play.

Looks like a lot of fun! Only suggestion would be up upgrade Shock to Wild Slash or perhaps Fiery Impulse . Cheers!

How is this different than Shock ing a Planeswalker? Like I am confused how this is supposed to work because you can remove 2 counters from a PW by just doing 2 damage to it. Are you just wanting the typing on the card to be an enchantment instead of an instant?

MoonHollow124: Thanks for the suggestion! I tried using Gingerbrute previously, but never found a need for the extra life. The reason I excluded it is that it is colorless, and won’t get the boost from The Flame of Keld .

Snivy__: Thanks for the suggestion! While Wild Slash is mostly better than Shock , the fact that ferocious only activates from a boosted Chandra's Spitfire and its $5 price tag will keep it out of the deck for now.

Wild Slash over Shock . You'll be thankful when you face Nexus of Fate decks.

Rabid_Wombat on Pioneer Cheerios

I play Cheerios in Legacy so I really wanted the deck to work in Pioneer.

Sadly, with only one draw engine in Sram I just don't think it's viable in the format. Thoughtseize , Shock , Wild Slash etc.. can take him out before you get to draw even one card. And to make matters worse, there is no Pioneer equivalent to Noxious Revival , Regrowth etc.. for Graveyard recursion so once he's gone, he gone.

No Grapeshot wincon sux too.

If Puresteel Paladin is reprinted in a future set then maybe Cheerios could step up in Pioneer...we'll have to wait and see.
