Swift Warkite

Creature — Dragon


When Swift Warkite enters the battlefield, you may put a creature card with converted mana cost 3 or less from your hand or graveyard onto the battlefield. That creature gains haste. Return it to your hand at the beginning of the next end step.

Swift Warkite Discussion

McWafflez on i have no clue what im doing with kaalia

Swift Warkite and Abyssal Persecutor are easy cuts as they have little synergy with Kaalia

Tested in the wild at the store and had the combo multiple times but could not execute as Creatures were summoning sick. I am putting in more haste enablers

  1. Entomb replacing Vitalize
  2. Lightning Greaves replacing Isochron Scepter
  3. Fires of Yavimaya replacing Instill Energy

Also the following changes:

  1. Olivia Voldaren replacing Blasphemous Act
  2. Tranquil Domain replacing Lifecrafter's Bestiary
  3. Swift Warkite replacing Hellkite Charger

legendofa What if I were to remove both Swift Warkite, as well as the one Deathbringer Regent, Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, and Akroma's Memorial and instead add in two Dark Ritual, two Seething Song, and one Mogis, God of Slaughter?

It gets rid of the high mana costs, while also giving me increased mana to bring out things more quickly. But they also might not be needed without the high cost things. Also only adding one Mogis makes it unlikely to draw it.

I do like your ideas and I do agree with you, I'm just not sure on how best to implement it.

What I'm seeing here is a Red Deck Wins adding black to improve the mid-late game. To offer some suggestions, it's going to be hard to use Deathbringer Regent, Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, and Akroma's Memorial with just 20 lands. If you want to keep them, look for ritual cards like Dark Ritual and Seething Song. Otherwise, you could drop them and tighten up your mana curve.

Maybe think about Mogis, God of Slaughter alongside your Desecration Demons to rip through your opponent's creatures and add another big body.

I'm not sold on Swift Warkite with your current creature setup, with the lack of cheap aggressive or ETB creatures outside of Vexing Devil. Also, it's 6 mana. If you keep it, give it some more friends.

I'll leave off here and let you build your deck the way you want it, but if you want more suggestions, there's plenty of willing people here.

To luther and IronTiger,

You both make great points. Fiend Hunter and Goblin Bombardment are going straight into the deck. To make room for these, Im cutting Phyrexian Metamorph and Nahiri, the Harbinger. Clones get worse as a deck gets better. Nahiri is good, but another combo piece/sacrifice outlet is much better. Those were easy cuts.

Here comes the tricky part. I really want to play Swift Warkite. I like the fact that Warkite pulls from the hand or graveyard, which adds some flexibility. However, Im not sure that I need a second Sun Titan effect. As for Boonweaver/Patterns of Rebirth, its nice, but this deck packs enough combos as it is. I rather add things that synergize with existing combos, such as the suggested Fiend Hunter and Goblin Bombardment.

Fiend Hunter is some nice protection from nasty creatures, as well as a way to go infinite with Karmic Guide, Sun Titan or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker as long as you have a sac outlet. Swift Warkite can be used as a second Sun Titan as far as your combos are concerned as it combos with Saffi Eriksdotter and Fiend Hunter, as well as just good value when you have so many 1 2 and 3 drops. Boonweaver Giant and Pattern of Rebirth act like another Protean Hulk.
