Sweltering Suns Discussion

IanG23 on AKH Control

I just wrote a novel's worth of advice before I accidentally hit "Subscribe" and lost it all. Sorry to be brief, but basically Eric Froehlich's list above is great. Black seems unnecessary. Cut Obby for Chandra of you want more Walkers though :) Cut Yahenni's Expertise for Sweltering Suns (Literally the only card it can cast for free is Fatal Push). Definitely play Censor over the four two drop creatures you have now and definitely play Disallow over Void Shatter.

That's all I got, and I don't brew control often so take it with a grain of salt :) But do trust Froehlich, he's fantastic!

I would run 4 Shocks and just board magma spray for embalm creatures and Scrapheap Scrounger. I would also run at least two Sweltering Suns since it is a cycle card and costs nothing to have two in your deck.

One last thing, maybe run Enigma Drake or Rise from the Tides in the sideboard that way you aren't completely blown out by Dispossess taking all your Torrential Gearhulks.

Soz for the double post.

I predict that Mardu Vehicles will no longer be a thing as EVERY colour now has some form of answer for it.

The biggest problems for it are Magma Spray, the good old Fatal Push, and Sweltering Suns.

It hasn't been winning in the MTGO tournament.

CoreGon on standard combos

You've got a few solid avenues to victory here, I like the list for sure! Definitely need some sideboard action for getting rid of Harsh Mentor. Probably Essence Scatter, which also hits Gods. I've been pleased with Censor as well for knocking aggro off curve and getting a card when not. There's quite a lot of good burn for aggro as well, like Sweltering Suns. Some great / Planeswalkers at our disposal as well that would be great against control, I've been impressed with Chandra, Flamecaller recently and Jace, Unraveler of Secrets has always been great. Just some thoughts for SB! +1

Scorprix on Shadow Perspective Combo (Competitive)

It definitely makes this deck worse, as this deck had a nearly un-loseable saheeli matchup. Hopefully no control pops up and the meta stays aggressive. I've been experimenting with Sweltering Suns instead of Shefet Monitor as I don't usually need the extra mana, but I'd have to fiddle with the mana base even more. Any opinion on that? And how will your deck change? How were its matchups, as I assume your deck will have to change even more? haha

Scorprix on Does the deck even need ...

1 day ago

My standard deck (not trying to advertise) uses shefet monitor to generate mana mid-combo, but in testing I'm starting to think I may not need it. I am very unsure, and would like any input I can get. I already have almost the entire deck in paper from pre-release trading and such (just 10-15 cards away, most of which are the lands), but I can't test my deck fast enough to know if I should really be playing Shefet Monitors or not. A lot of times in testing I find that Viziers end up pulling all the necessary weight I need to combo out, but I can't really be sure. For now I've been testing Sweltering Suns in its place to some success, but I still don't feel really sure about the change. Any thoughts or input from anybody who's played this deck or a similar version of it? Thanks!

Kevaka on Hazoret's Madness

Run Archfiend of Ifnir in place of Glorybringer.

Run Fiery Temper in place of Ruthless Sniper.

Run Heir of Falkenrath  Flip in place of Olivia's Dragoon

Run Incorrigible Youths in place of Stromkirk Occultist

Run Flameblade Adept.

Sideboard Lost Legacy.

Cut Stromkirk Condemned for 3 lands.

Think about Asylum Visitor and Biting Rain

Key to the City is always nice.

Sweltering Suns is good if the board gets to out of control.

Possibly run one Hazoret's Monument.

Scarab Feast is good against graveyard decks.

left a comment, SkoomaDaDrug, nice deck you got there

3-1: Jund Minus Exert Prerelease!

Standard* emrakulinsmugglers


this was my prerelease deck, and im trying to turn it into a competitive standard legal Hellbent / Jund aggro deck. already changed it from 40 cards to 60 cards, but im wondering if i can find a way past Sweltering Suns? basically any help to make it more competitive, while staying in my budget (which is $200 for this deck, but that is a maximum and preferably under $50 would be great)
