Star of Extinction? It works surprisingly well with Truefire Captain

Some cards right off the bat are, Tidings, Star of Extinction (Although that card is sooooo COOL), Rise from the Tides, Beacon Bolt, Aftershock, Out of Bounds, An-Zerrin Ruins

There are a lot of ways you can improve the deck, but what is the way you want to win? On an additional note, I'm assuming your under a budget as well as I see a lot of these cards are from the most recent sets. I can provide a list for cheap staples that would improve the deck leaps and bounds.

Running Banefire in your main deck is going to really slaughter your opponents. Play Storm (hopefully) turn 7-8, then play a land and go shock-shock-banefire for 19 damage. If you have a Goblin Electromancer out you can go lightning-shock-banefire for true lethal.

Keep in mind that for your win-con to work you have to survive until turn 6. You can use Shock an Lightning Strike to kill 1,2,3 mana stuff but then you need a Deafening Clarion past that. Maybe swap out your Star of Extinction for some counters like Essence Scatter or some main-deck Ionize.

An interesting deck, kind of reminds me of an Ashling the Pilgrim build a buddy of mine ran. That card could get really crazy really quickly. Perhaps it is one you could consider for the 99 or an alternate commander if you want to mix things up.

I kind of respect a player who rolls Mono Red in commander, it isn't easy to get right, but when you do it is so much fun. In fact my personal favorite deck is Mono Red see Its the Wrath of Starke.

I'm also assuming you've already considered cards like Distorting Lens and Scuttlemutt to synergize with your commander? If not something to look into.

I'm also surprised to not find a Chandra, Torch of Defiance in this list. She is just so flexible.

A Star of Extinction might also not be too bad. Solid board clear that can deal with a pesky land and synergizes with Stuffy Doll. Volcanic Offering and Frenzied Fugue are also quite nice, but sadly neither is available in foil.

imsocool1234: I have tested the Detection Tower against mono-green, and it didn't really perform as well as I would have liked it to. I think the Cleansing Nova would be better here, and I'm thinking of adding it to the sideboard. I'm hoping that Star of Extinction and Settle the Wreckage can get the job done, but if not I'll consider adding 1x Cleansing Nova in as well.

Hey, there's three cards in the maybeboard that you should consider playing main deck and sideboard.

Main deck Syncopate, sideboard both Legion Warboss and Star of Extinction. Consider 3x Syncopate main deck? This counterspell is really good right now because of Golgari since it exiles. Izzet Drakes sometimes cast Arclight and when they do you can potentially exile it. It can also be a main deck two drop counter for History of Benalia. Your opponent just knowing you might have Syncopate needs to play around it and that gives you an advantage. As far as the counterspell package for the main deck this is what I suggest: 4x Sabotage, 3x Syncopate, 2x Scatter, 1x Negate. More Negate and Stroke in the sideboard.

Consider 3x Warboss sideboard? This is the card you can board in when you take out Clarion in control matchups. Consider this control matchup sideboard package: 3x Warboss, 2x Negate, 1x Stroke, 1x more Niv-Mizzet? Extinction can wreck Golgari which is counting on getting an advantage with Planeswalkers and Carnage Tyrant. Consider 1x Extinction for the sideboard?

Consider this sideboard example:

  • 3x Warboss
  • 2x Negate
  • 1x Stroke
  • 1x Niv-Mizzet
  • 1x Invoke
  • 2x Seal
  • 1x Justice Strike
  • 1x Lyra
  • 1x Settle
  • 1x Nova
  • 1x Extinction

Consider main deck 4x Revitalize and 3x Insight? Insight is the better overall control card, but Revitalize is better against aggro since it gains you life and helps you to draw into life saver turn three Clarion. Turn four Insight is actually pretty slow against aggro. Having 8x (4x Opt, 4x Revitalize) early game plays that can help you to draw into Clarion or Seal is good. Revitalize is not a dead card against control because it does draw.

Good luck with your deck.

Just went 7-2 in constructed event (MTGA) with mostly this deck, thanks pal. I DID in fact use Fight with Fire over Star of Extinction and it won me one game. Other games I won were more burn wins, getting Tajic/Swiftblade opening hand with 2 mana is a guaranteed win. Thanks.
