Sudden Demise Discussion

shagreel on War Deck

I listened to the CMDR podcast and that brought me here. I play a boros deck however it is a more control style iroas build the list is here http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/10-06-15-wifes-boros/ . Wanted to reccomend a few cards and see what you think.

Unlike CMDR central I am a big fan of a sunforger package espically in your deck as the +4/+0 on Aurelia, the Warleader can make a huge difference on your clock and be removed to blink her.

I would like to recommend the following additions to your Sunforger package:

  1. Mistveil Plains, This allows you to reuse one of you sunforger targets by putting it back into your deck from your graveyard
  2. Comeuppance, I consider this an upgrade to Safe Passage as it still prevents damage but also reflects it back to the source of the damage.
  3. Expedition Map, This does not ramp the land out like Wayfarer's Bauble does but it allows you to find any land you need not just a basic
Also you might want to consider a few removal cards like Crush Contraband.

As for other cards to think about for your deck I would consider these Creatures: (I went with an angel theme)

  1. Angelic Page
  2. Blinding Angel
  3. Voice of All
  4. Angel of Serenity, Please note you can exile cards in a graveyard with this, and when it leaves they go back to a players hand
  5. Angel of Sanctions
  6. Angel of Condemnation

Non Creatures: As I went with the Angel theme Urza's Incubator to amke all your angels 2 cheaper, I agree with CMDR central to play Pearl Medallion, also might want to consider Seal of the Guildpact, Lastlythink about Sudden Demise it is similar to Aurelia's Fury but kills the creatures instead of making them not able to block.

Regardless of how you choose to build a mono-red Grenzo list, the early game is very important because that's when defenses are down. For that reason, always give preference for creatures you can drop early on in the game. I'd say, for example, that Legion Loyalist is a must here. I don't think rolling earthquake is where you wanna go with this deck. Instead, I'd try something like Sudden Demise. As I've mentioned before, this strategy is pretty linear and you'll have a hard time playing against non-gimmicky/non-casual lists. Trashmaster is a cool addition that I missed during my last set review. Think will probably add it to my own list. GL!

Well the good news is, red in cmdr has been getting some love from wizards of the coast, and has been addressing the issues with it's color in cmdr. I'd build it for casual. A red flying deck with board wipes like Earthquake, Mizzium Mortars, and Sudden Demise so that your board is always unaffected by your wraths. You could have the strong enchantments like Warstorm Surge, Sarkhan's Unsealing, and Vicious Shadows to win the game.

All this sounds good but I think it would still be a stronger deck if you had Lathliss, Dragon Queen as the cmdr because most red flying creatures are dragons.

Red has 180ish flying creatures. 83 of them are dragons.

Good luck with you build. I want to see it when it's done.

+1 this looks gnarly

What do you think about Temur Battle Rage? or Clout of the Dominus?

Also I love all the 3-drop red boardwipes similar to Anger of the Gods; Sweltering Suns is new-ish, Radiant Flames, Slagstorm, Sudden Demise, etc. Ruhan of the Fomori dgaf

My buddy plays his own version and it rocks. I went u/r/g for my 1v1, but I see a lot of similarities in here. Have fun!

From my Marchesa deck:

Blood Tyrant is great if it can survive. Dark Impostor is really scary if you can exile a few commanders. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is pretty scary. Hellhole Flailer is decent removal. Malakir Cullblade HOLY SHIT that got big fast. Marchesa's Smuggler can come out of nowhere. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is really, really big. Fervor doesn't seem that great, but it can destroy removal-centric control decks. Rhystic Study is SO MUCH DRAAAW. Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker is easily the best artifact/enchantment removal in Grixis. Blasphemous Act is awesome when death is impermanent. Killing Wave is in the same boat. Rakdos's Return ANNIHILATES combo players. Use Sudden Demise on the G or W player, or even on your guys. Bident of Thassa is just awesome.

And there's still an entire Meren deck to cover.

Attrition. Champion of Stray Souls is good for those who fall through the cracks or just as a bluff. 'Even if you DO finally kill my guy he'll just come back'. Corpse Traders against combo players. Disciple of Bolas is good draw and it can be a TON. Slum Reaper is good, and wildly asymmetrical. Stronghold Assassin, in your build, is recursive Attrition. Vampiric Rites is really good early game. Westvale Abbey  Flip is stupid difficult to remove, starting as a land and then an indestructible creature.

And finally, my favorite one of all: Vindictive Lich. I normally use it as a political piece, letting people pick the fate that seems least bad. Through that, I learn what their unique kryptonite is. I then use that once I am strong enough that I don't need any alliances.

I love this deck, but... no Ghostly Prison? No Starfield of Nyx? Let's go full-on enchantress on this bitch. Curse of Misfortunes is monstrous, especially when paired with Overwhelming Splendor. Sigil of the Empty Throne is a beast in enchantments, too. Worth considering is Daxos the Returned but he's not fantastic. Great blocker generator.

Good removal can be Doom Blade, Ultimate Price, Sudden Demise is good vs. blue, Divine Reckoning, Wrath of God, Blasphemous Act, Fumigate. All great with little-to-no creatures. Lightning Helix is also neat.

This one's more optional, but Sorin, Lord of Innistrad is good life gain, gives you a few good blockers. And if you're running Exquisite Blood you might as well have Sanguine Bond up your sleeve to go infinite.

Magister of Worth is a gamble, since you'll probably have few cards in the grave. Also, no rocks? That's up to you, I guess. I appreciate the flavor of Triskaidekaphobia but it's really not good.

This deck is awesome, super cool and fun. I love the flavor of it, the functionality, and the fact that group hug comes in black.

Oh jeez, no wonder early game has been a nightmare for you! You need more lands, along with some artifacts that generate mana.

I would immediately add ~5 lands along with a few staple artifact ramp cards like Commander's Sphere, Gruul Signet, Golgari Signet, Rakdos Signet, and Chromatic Lantern.

To make room for these additions, you're looking at a few cuts as well - I would start with:

Sudden Demise - As a 3 color deck, you will often be calling your own colors.

Cryptolith Rite - You don't really want to be tapping your dragons for mana.

Argentum Armor - This feels like overkill to me, though this is more personal preference.

The sub-theme you have with token generation is also kind of weird, what is your goal with the additional token generation cards?

Hopefully your future early game endeavors will go smoother - best of luck with the deck!

Ok ok so, i have a commander deck with Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund as the commander. The deck itself has functioned pretty well up until recently, i have been getting completely rekt early game. Do keep in mind i have not been playing long and do not have a great understanding of cards or of a good build, in fact this is the first deck i have ever built. All i really need help with is early game because dinos have been destroying me as of late. The deck is built as follows:i have no clue what im doing dragons
