Skullcrack Discussion

xzzane Only 2 had that oppinion on the Mtgsalv primer.. so not a lot. 3 others ran it in their sideboard.

Not very well thought out statement.. Separating what I mean and what I feel is where my ability to communicate what I mean breaks down.. >.< Sorry. Too much habitual use of words without thinking.

Those that do, only cite that path eats it alive. However vs burn and twin its damn near unremovable. Twin less so obviously.. but the only way to kill it in burn outside of Pyrite Spellbomb from the side.. Is to Skullcrack you then bolt it. Since damage cant be prevented and pro colors are trying to prevent.

I assume those that hold that opinion have to deal with 9/10 decks packing paths. I def like the idea of it mainboard..

...I just dont like the idea of spending 25$ on it.. after this:

I only got like 2.25 for it at the time.. 2-3 years ago just before I got into hatebears and modern as a whole.

If you run a lot of fetches, one might be good, but I'm by no means a professional burn expert. I just know Skullcracks 5-8 are very, very good against the hate people bring in.

Bump in the Night is another splash you might consider if you have the budget and want it, but the main reason I like the white splash is the ability to side Kor Firewalker (with good enough mana). Boros Charm is yes, a very good burn spell as well, and Lightning Helix is good against other aggressive decks.

So splashing is fantastic! For the myriad of options and suggestions, I will point you to the primer.

Maybe Skullcrack, otherwise good deck.

Yeah, enchantment removal sounds good, and yes you are right: there are only a few people who sideboard Tainted Remedy. But I think that Flames of the Blood Hand and Skullcrack are still problematic. Many red decks sideboard ( or even Mainboard ) these.

You could also splash green to take advantage of Atarka's Command considering how many creatures you have. It's a direct upgrade over Skullcrack

Consider trying out Monastery Swiftspear. It's cheap and can help get in the beats quickly.

Also if you do plan on adding a sideboard, Skullcrack can do wonders.

If you wanna spend a little money Vexing Devils for Zurgo Bellstriker. Skullcrack should be in your sideboard to deal with life gain and annoying damage prevention cards. Fiery Impulse can easily be switched for Lightning Bolt.
