Steel Hellkite can be a nice add to your deck

Capricious Efreet didn't do too well when I tested it in our group, even with it targeting Darksteel Plate for the one permanent that I have to target of mine. So I guess I'll use good old trusty Steel Hellkite. I also added in Treasonous Ogre and Eternity Vessel, those two work really well together for ramp in mono red. Also put in a Soul of New Phyrexia to help me survive a board wipe. Added in some more removal and color hate cards, Omen of Fire, Flashfires, Shattering Spree.

Heretic_Dragoon thanks for the suggestions. I'll probably try Ratchet Bomb and Languish. I'm not sure I'm a fan of Steel Hellkite because there's no way to cheat on the mana but it's definetally a bomb. I know that Gifts Ungiven is a skill testing card that i haven't played with yet myself. Any suggestions on picking my 4?

GarrbygGifts Ungiven has been reprinted enough to where it's affordable. Ratchet Bomb is a cheap alternative to Engineered Explosives. Steel Hellkite is a fair threat that can nuke the board and can be tutored for. Unless you wanna spend the 10-12 bucks for a wurmcoil. Languish hits most relevant targets in modern, and you don't have to strain your mana base. Even Bontu's Last Reckoning when Hour is released is good. I play Thopter Gifts and you can look at my list for some ideas, thought my deck isnt budget friendly

Steel Hellkite is crazy with Neheb, along with any sort of Fireball-style spell, the best (other than Fireball) are: Comet Storm, Bonfire of the Damned, Banefire, Devil's Play, and Red Sun's Zenith.

Scenario: You opponent controls Whispersilk Cloak. He casts Steel Hellkite. You know you want to target the Hellkite with Serrated Arrows.

  • The Hellkite is on top of the stack. Each player receives priority. You could play instants or activate abilities, but at this point, the Hellkite isn't on the field yet, so you can't target it with Arrows.

  • Hellkite resolves and enters the battlefield. The active playre (your opponent) receives priority. You can't do anything at this point.

  • You opponent puts the Cloak's equip ability on the stack. He receives priority and passes it to you.

  • This is where you can target the Hellkite with Arrows. You do so. The ability is put on top of the stack. You receive priority.

  • Nobody does anything, so Arrows' ability resolves puts a counter on Hellkite. You opponent receives priority.

  • Nobody does anything, so the Cloak's equip ability resolves.

As an example. Someone plays a Steel Hellkite. Once that has entered, they try to attach a whispersilk to it. If I want to put a -1/-1 counter on it with say Serrated Arrows at what point should I do it? When he brings it into play, pre whispersilk? Or would it still work when they have already declared equipping?
