Suffocating Blast Discussion

Hausar on One Punch Bird

I have these two partner commanders and find them pretty awesome and one-shotting people within a table cycle or two.

I generally try to find Sunforger as soon as I can as this allows me to access any Red/White instants from my deck to protect as needed, opening up a much wider way to protect Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker. By replacing mono-blue instants with multi-colored ones this opens your effective hand up more much more. Suffocating Blast, Render Silent or Hindering Light give you some countspells for access. Master Warcraft is also available for some combat tricks, Boros Charm for protection and Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares for removal.

Open the Armory seems useful with your voltron style.

1+ from me!

DemonDragonJ on Duel Decks: Mind versus Might

In Jhoira's deck, I would like to see Suffocating Blast reprinted, since it never has been, thus far. Also, Counterflux, Double Negative, Electrolyze, and Prophetic Bolt would all be nice, because they are all very awesome cards that woudl work well with her.

I imagine that Lovisa's deck shall contain plenty of warriors, barbarians, and berserkers, so Berserkers of Blood Ridge would make perfect sense, as would Raging Goblin and Goblin Striker. It also would be nice to see Lightning Bolt or Stone Rain reprinted, since they have not been reprinted in some time, as well.

More common instant-matters cards: ... Nivix Cyclops, Peer Through Depths, Prescient Chimera, Pyre Hound, Scrivener, Send to Sleep, and Thermo-Alchemist.

Note that the Panoptic Mirror I recommended earlier is actually banned in EDH, my bad.

Maybe you want to consider Counterspell, or any of the following counterspells that include burn, either optional or guaranteed: Molten Influence, Mindswipe, Suffocating Blast, Izzet Charm, and Essence Backlash.

I could see Wild Research working wonders in this deck. It tutors 31 out of the 99 cards in your deck, and Zedruu's draw rate makes the discard negligible most of the time.The same goes for Sunforger. It would help the vigilance creatures with attacking and blocking as well as tutoring up cards like Suffocating Blast, Oblation, and Reverberate Other cards to consider are Pyromancer's Swath, Celestial Dawn, Statecraft, and Illusions of Grandeur, which are all nasty cards to donate to your opponents. They're sometimes a bit too nasty though. Celestial Dawn for example is essentially a 3-mana Iona, Shield of Emeria that shuts down Non-White decks instead of Mono-Colored decks
