Yo shwanerz88!

Have ya thought of adding in some of these fun cards for shenanigans?

Maybe add in these cards as well to help with the ramp, tutoring, or just general value!

Big thing I really like in Okaum/Zndrsplt decks is the use of cards like Fling/Soul's Fire/Chandra's Ignition to do a crap load of damage!!!

Hope that helps!

Look for Fling effects to finish off that last opponent. Soul's Fire Greater Good Momentous Fall Chandra's Ignition

Awesome and original idea! Love it, +1!

The only other "Fling-like" effect I can find in Pauper is Soul's Fire from Shards of Alara. If you need more fling-effects, that may be of use, plus you get to keep the creature when it resolves... and then Fling it lol.

Also, here are some more Pauper walls you might like: Cinder Wall, Blistering Barrier, Oona's Gatewarden, Tidal Wave and maybe Torpid Moloch.

Of course I'm biased for bolt bemd as it is way too much utility to pass up.

Might want to consider Soul's Fire > Thud depending on how much mana you can make during your turns. Thud is sorcerry speed and additional cost to cast is sac. At least fling is an instant which is much better IMO. Soul's fire goes one step beyond.

Well, if you never had any problems with Kiln Fiend then keep it. There's no reason to change what has been working out fine. Just as a thought provoker, you can have Monastery Swiftspear to think about.

Maybe just bad wasn't the best thing to say about Rakdos Shred-Freak . It's just that it offers basically nothing more than haste. You have cards like Hellspark Elemental , as you mentioned, but also:

  1. Earthshaker Khenra - Makes it easier to get to your opponent while also being reusable from the grave in the late game, and even bigger than before.

  2. Ash Zealot - More of a Siboard card, but still, 2 mana for first strike, haste and punishes your opponent for playing cards from your graveyard.

  3. Vexing Devil - Dont't know if you could fit this guy in your budget, but it's amazing. It's either a one mana 4/3 that your opponent will have to waste a removal spell or a one mana 4 damage spell.

However, the real reason I said Rakdos Shred-Freak is bad is because of...

Thunderkin Awakener - It can reanimate all of your (elemental) suicide bombers while attacking. So for only two mana, you can from 4 damage on board, with Thunderkin Awakener and Spark Elemental , to up to 8 damage with the Firecat. You could also put other cards in for him, like Lightning Skelemental and Spark Trooper , but those would require you to adjust the manabase.

Also, since you're playing these cheap suicide bombers you could use Unearth to reanimate them again and hit for a bunch. However, I'm not sure that splashing to black would appeal to you.

Another suicide bomber could be Impetuous Devils , though I don't have much to say about it. You can basically take out one of your opponent's creature by forcing them to block. Just here as an option for you.

Cards like Thud , Fling and Flesh / Blood (the blood half only) should prove themselves more useful than Soul's Fire . Since most of your creatures are dying anyway, there should be no problem in sacrificing them.

Manabasewise, if really want to keep Reality Smasher you can add lands that have a better utility than Rogue's Passage as most of your creatures have trample anyway, so your opponent will regardless always have trouble preventing damage.

I've been writing a lot today, so right now I won't go on too much detail about these "utility" lands. I'll just list some here and you can say if you liked any or none and I'll glady discuss about it.

Just as a curiosty, I've written so many cards in this comment that TappedOut won't let me mark more suggestions, while most not even appearing for me to suggest.

Soul's Fire doesn't work with Zada because Zada says 'targets only ~' and Soul's Fire has two targets.

shadow63 What card? Savage Punch ? That's a fight effect. I would say the first card I have known as one-sided fights is Crush Underfoot and a more flexible version in Soul's Fire . The first green version was Rabid Bite in Shadows over Innistrad.

Others that followed in green: Aggressive Instinct (from the global series), Ambuscade , Band Together , Clear Shot , Combo Attack , Moonlight Hunt and Nissa's Judgment .

I don't think there's a consensus on what this effect should be called.

bradtheimpaler13 Thanks for the suggestions! I will keep them in mind as I move forward with the deck. Addressing your suggestions one at a time; I don't think Rite of Consumption holds up. Thud has a lower CMC, Fling is an Instant, and other cards like Soul's Fire allow Grevan to do the damage which is relevant for Tainted Strike . If I end up moving towards more combat tricks it will go in though. I'm going to playtest with Clackbridge Troll but I don't think the deck needs the draw and to me that is the only advantage of the card
