Sunscorch Regent Discussion

Denthrass on ~Life sucks~ Fat Karlov remains unbeaten.

1 week ago

hello again, I had forgotten about this list. nearly a year of testing later, I have more suggestions.

Skullclamp is probably the most powerful draw you could ask for, especially with your token sub-theme

Aetherflux Reservoir is another card that can go infinite with Exquisite Blood while also providing an insane amount of incremental lifegain

Dragon Throne of Tarkir is amazing with the token sub-theme, overrunning your opponents for 20+ each creature in many cases

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is removal for many things orzhov has trouble removing

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Crypt Ghast can lead to some very broken starts

Demonic Collusion is very good at finding the entirety of your combo in one card

Serra Avatar can end games very quickly, and also plays well with all your voltron peices

Sunscorch Regent can just get out of hand in multiplayer, while also growing karlov

and finally Debt to the Deathless can end any serious board stall seriously quick

there might be more and i am sure it would come up were we to play, so I will leave my listThat which is dead will kill you quickly

A lot of the equipment you have I feel like could be replaced with better protection options. Swiftfoot Boots should probably go in instead of General's Kabuto. I would also consider adding in Sunforger instead of Champion's Helm - a good Sunforger package works wonders. I also run Hoarding Dragon to find Sunforger - it can also find your Lightning Greaves or Steel Hellkite. For additional protection, try Apostle's Blessing.

I'm not a big fan of the Akromas, personally. They are huge beaters, but offer no other utility and even have a hard time pulling removal off of Kaalia. You can check out my list here for some ideas for more utility-based, yet still fat, fatties here: Dies Irae. Off the top of my head, there are Overseer of the Damned, Chancellor of the Annex, Bloodgift Demon, Herald of Anguish, Dawnbreak Reclaimer, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Sunscorch Regent (gets much bigger than both Akromas very fast), and Sire Of Insanity. There are lots of others, those are just what I like to run. However, both Akromas have the advantage of being super freaking cool, so there's that.

I've also had a lot of success with Restoration Angel. It can protect Kaalia by blinking it through removal or even serve as a pair surprise blockers when your creatures are tapped, letting you kill a commander or something. Unfortunately most of the best ETB abilities are attached to Angels, but usually you can still get value from it.

I like Diabolic Revelation a lot better than Increasing Ambition. Just me though.

I would recommend running a bunch more 2-cost mana rocks. Lets Kaalia come out a turn earlier. The other signets, Sphere of the Suns, Fellwar Stone, Coldsteel Heart, etc. To make room, you could cut maybe a beater or two, Strionic Resonator, and Reconnaissance, or something. Just an example, cut whatever bits you don't find as useful if you decide to go with this.

Really powerful list as is! Kaalia is lots of fun and I like the build you've got going. Feel free to ignore any of my suggestions, this is your build. Just wanted to shotgun a bunch of suggestions at you for you to float around. Happy face-beating!

Best card to put as featured for sure!

How about Rhox Faithmender?
From more costly ones I'd reccomend Beacon of Immortality, Archangel of Thune and of course Serra Ascendant.
Also Boon Reflection, Spirit Link (note you may attach it to opponent's creature), Ordeal of Heliod, Sunbond and Angelic Accord, especially the latter, as for enchantments.
Sunscorch Regent is a really well-working card and is pretty cheap. Essence Warden can double your Soul Warden and be a good one drop to start the game with.

Sorry if it's too much. I just really like lifegain and know a lot of cards. :)

Flytrigreen on Kaalia Budget

4 weeks ago


Enchantment/Artifact: Into the Core, Dust to Dust, Disenchant, Purify, Void

Creature: Ultimate Price, Doom Blade, Hero's Downfall, Celestial Flare (Play after damage has been dealt, but before combat ends for max effect), Unmake, Slaughter, Grasp of Darkness

Cheap Dragons

Sunscorch Regent, Tyrant's Familiar, Wardscale Dragon, Hellkite Tyrant (Not a win-con, is just good for shutting down artifacts). There are more obviously, those are just the cheap ones I can think of off the top of my head.


You asked for enchantments; however, they aren't the biggest things to worry about. War's Toll is good (stops counter magic) and so is Blind Obedience (you are already a threat because of Kaalia, BO won't make it worse)

Flytrigreen on Get a life? I have plenty!

Sunscorch Regent + Archangel of Thune. Your opponents can't cast things without you gaining life and getting huge creatures.

This hurts my eyes....I'm not a competitive player by any means, but this is soooo all over the place I think most wins/interactions would be pure luck.

I have to give you major props for putting these to Partners together... they lack synergy so much, that's why there's no frame of reference. On the other hand if you force them to have synergy you could have a very unique and fun deck on your hands. I think the only way to do this is with (mostly) artifact creatures that etb with/benefit from +1/+1 counters. Even going this route feels weird without access to blue.

Anyways...suggestions for the card pool....

Arcbound Crusher, Arcbound Reclaimer, Arcbound Stinger, Etched Oracle, Flowstone Sculpture, Lunar Avenger, Mindless Automaton, Spincrusher, Suncrusher, Triskelion, Mephidross Vampire, Necropolis Regent, Dark Impostor, Death's Presence (stacks with Reyhan), Then for any other idea's I'd start looking at the 3 billion Atraxa Decklists that have popped up this month for stuff like Contagion Engine, Sunscorch Regent or Renegade Krasis or whatever.

Anyways +1 Upvote for bravery on mixing these Partners


Dorotheus on Frontier Grixis Dragon Control

I feel like somewhere with Dragonlord Ojutai, Sunscorch Regent, and Orator of Ojutai is way more powerful, with Silumgar's Scorn being another payout. Maybe there is just a 4 color Dragon control deck. Ultimate Price, and Sinister Concoction are better removal than Unlicensed Disintegration alone, and the synergy with Torrential Gearhulk isn't good enough compared to the cost reduction.
