Sunscorched Desert Discussion

Melchezedek on Ajani's Angel

One of the things you might look at is the use of some NON-Basic Land cards that are B/W and when tapped you gain 1 Life, like Crypt of the Eternals. In addition other Non-Basic Land cards that are W/(U/G/R) and B/(U/G/R) like Cinder Barrens and Clifftop Retreat also open up the possibility of expanding your deck to include multi-colored cards or in this case Red cards if desired.

Also you might consider adding Regal Bloodlord to your deck to work in concert with Ajani's Pridemate and Diamond Mare. These are also aided by Crypt of the Eternals as discussed above. Also if you decide replace some the Basic Land cards with Non-Basic Land cards, take a look at Sunscorched Desert for possible inclusion.

I also have thought of building a LifeGain deck built around Felidar Sovereign for Modern. +40 life is a hard number to get, but building the deck would be fun, irrespective of its playability.

These suggestions may not be exactly what you're looking for, but I hope I've given you some food for thought.

Zarathoustra on Goblin Snipe : Aggro Deck

Nice deck dude, Guttersnipe is a great card and I think you should run a full set. In order to make it work, you could also add 4 Shock or another cheap burn spell. I use Guttersnipe in a modern burn deck, have a look : Guttersnipe's Insulting Combo.

I would suggest Sunscorched Desert for even more damage.

Why does Goblin Warchief stay on the side ? You could just remove Viashino Pyromancer and replace it, he's good but your whole deck will benefit of haste and the discount on goblin spells.

Zarathoustra on Cheap Burn Deck

Nice one, my modern red burn deck Guttersnipe's Insulting Combo is also using Firebrand Archer, maybe you should give it a try. In my opinion Shrine of Burning Rage has to come in full set, and Rift Bolt too.

Finally, Sunscorched Desert and Ramunap Ruins are cheap cards and would fit nicely there. +1

@Littlepoot

That is correct. You cast Crop Rotation sacrificing a land to fetch Sunscorched Desert, and after that, you just keep sacrificing, shuffling it in your library, and then fetching it with the same Crop Rotation you used to sacrifice it.

It's essentially the Rath's Edge line described in the primer (Cleanup Step Win Pt.2), but with fewer steps as you don't need extra land drops to loop the Desert.

Maybe you could add a category of lands that physically deal damage or have the opponent lose life in some way like Sunscorched Desert and Piranha Marsh

Something I have seen with decks built around the Mindcrank Combo is ways to instantly win after you activate the guildmage for free. Gut Shot is kinda expensive but a good option, but I've even seen people use like Sunscorched Desert just so that they can deal that 1 damage guaranteed to start the loop. I think there's also a black tapped land that does a similar effect but that would be my reccomendation.
