Spellshock Discussion

Caerwyn on The Boros Legion has arrested my wallet

First, I'd run a bit more aggressive removal package.

Personally, I'd lean into a group slug theme--burn everyone equally, with the hope of buffing Anya. She's already running Manabarbs, which is a great option. Burning Earth is another great option. Spellshock can be quite powerful as well in some metas, providing everyone else is casting more spells per turn than she is (she has some large angels, so that's not infeasible).

Furnace of Wrath is devastating with the above, and has the bonus fun of comboing with Heartless Hidetsugu to kill a player in one shot.

Or, if she does not want to go a hyper-aggressive group-burn route, Red and White have some great ways to slow down the game. Stranglehold and Aven Mindcensor take away a lot of other deck's primary advantages. Blood Moon can be a nightmare to play around considering how common nonbasics are in EDH. Rest in Peace is an all-around good card and can even take out players if you combo it with Helm of Obedience.

Smothering Tithe is a great option for Ramp, something Boros is lacking and this deck in particular really wants.

I would recommend cutting Boros Garrison, Evolving Wilds, and Terramorphic Expanse - they slow you down so much that they're arguably worse than a basic. Clifftop Retreat would be a good addition.

Talisman of Conviction is another ramp card to consider. I'd say it's vastly superior to Boros Cluestone.

multimedia on [Primer] Mogis' Slaughter House: Murder Made Tasty

Hey, nice overall concept, but I think you can be doing a lot more slugging :)

Harsh Mentor , Zo-Zu the Punisher , Ankh of Mishra , Spellshock can be more repeatable damage to your opponents and these cards are good in a large variety of deck matchups. Spellshock and Mentor can alone shut down infinite combos. Torbran, Thane of Red Fell makes Mogis do 4 damage instead of 2 each turn and he's good with other sources of damage especially Manabarbs since 3 damage is a lot more than 1 damage. Torbran and Loyal Subordinate with Mogis can increase the bleeding of your opponents.

Cards also can do damage to you which is good draw with Vilis, Broker of Blood and Vilis is busted with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth . Sire Of Insanity can be a backbreaking effect in multiplayer Commander and it goes with the idea of gaining turns to bleed out your opponents. Sire is good with Bloodchief Ascension . Vilis and Sire are worth including a small reanimation package with some enablers to cheat them onto the battlefield.

Smoke is an underrated disruptive card for red. Not only is good to stop lots of attackers, but also mana dorks since an opponent can only untap one of them.

Good luck with your deck.

DrukenReaps on Competitive Kids: Is Twilight Prophet ...

2 months ago

dingusdingo I haven't seen an ad nauseum in casual play since high school when the card came out. It is exceedingly rare for casual players to treat their life totals the same way competitive players are willing to do.

That said I have my Divine Decree deck where the win-con is Manabarbs , Twilight Prophet , Spellshock , etc. Casual play does see necropotence on occasion in my meta and a lot of phyrexian arena type effects. People do go from thinking " Painful Quandary is a silly card" to "where is my removal I'm about to get wrecked" when they are not careful.

BS-T on Pillow Fort Bleed - Protecting ...

This is tricky - I like it!

There are a few decent prevention effects among these: Scryfall, the best for you probably being Light of Sanction .

Though you've likely tackled this angle fairly well... The best repeatable ones on the list are Story Circle , Circle of Protection: Red / Rune of Protection: Red - and the slightly spicier Shieldmage Advocate , Protective Sphere / Righteous Aura .

Urza's Armor is decent if you're using things like Pyrohemia and is useful to a degree vs Spellshock or Pyrostatic Pillar (also have you got Eidolon of the Great Revel ?) Similarly the ult of Ajani Steadfast seems good.

B.A.N.E. on Pillow Fort Bleed - Protecting ...

3 months ago

I'm interested in creating a R/W/B bleed deck and need a little advice regarding the right ratio of cards.

Here's the idea. Using Spellshock , Pyrostatic Pillar , Earthquake , Inferno and similar cards paired with Furnace of Rath and Repercussion I'm looking to deal massive damage across the board.

To protect my self I've looked at Solitary Confinement and Glacial Chasm to protect my self from all sources and Personal Sanctuary to protect myself from myself.

What proportion of protection / pillow fort cards should I keep to damage? Do you have any other suggestions for this?
