Swirling Sandstorm Discussion

Bloodfire Infusion , Flame Slash , possibly Lava Storm , Martyr of Ashes , Sandstorm , Hush , Multani's Decree and possibly Swirling Sandstorm could act as hate against your mainly voltron opponents. Don't overload your deck with these though.

Unfortunatly, most of this also hurts you.

I would cut two lands for Kodama's Reach and Cultivate .

Darksteel Pendant can help you find what your looking for.

Does the soulblade player use Viridian Longbow ?

How fast is Vizkopa Guildmage ?

If Longbow becomes a problem, I would recomend somthing versatile like Crushing Canopy .

Monarch cards could be good, but Valduk is pretty punishing on monarch cards.

Ulamog's Crusher is the biggest beater in PDH, so he could find his way in here if you wanted.

How fast is Valduk?

Would some more combat tricks (First strike) get a Vine Mare mid combat?

What flying creature is the Stinging Shot mainly in there for?

Sorry for the unorganized thoughts, hope this helps! :)

Stonehorn Dignitary is suashi, and that ghostly flicker route is cool, but i think I like the Pestilence Wall of Hope Dromad Purebred interaction the most. if you can find more cards that interact well in that frame that could be cool. red also could be useful for Swirling Sandstorm effects to boardwipe and gain a lot of life.

Repercussion could be good to hurt your opponents while pinging their creatures. Chandra's Ignition on Kazarov can pump him up really hard and win games without attacking. Thornbite Staff helps untap your pingers. Basilisk Collar makes them lethal, but you might or might not want that effect. Dowsing Dagger  Flip is another good synergy since damaging the tokens will make Kazarov bigger.

I would recommend cutting the sorceries that only do 1 damage since those are not very card-efficient, except Wail of the Nim since it regenerates. Chain Reaction, Hour of Devastation, and Anger of the Gods could be good. Maybe even Star of Extinction and Swirling Sandstorm. Arcbond spreads the damage.

You might want your pingers to have higher toughness, or not be creatures so they don't get destroyed by your damage. You should also cut the creatures that only ping once like Bloodfire Dwarf and Chainwhirler. Shard Phoenix is way too expensive for 2 damage. Balefire Dragon is a classic for dealing damage to lots of creatures. Silverclad Ferocidons and Needletooth Raptor can amplify your pinging.

can also add some removal like Lightning Bolt and take out things that don't really do anything good like Fissure and the ritual spells. Also add Swirling Sandstorm because reds best board wipe.

@euananddalesaccount I started with Electrickery in the sideboard, then put 1 in the mainboard, then 2.. then 3.. then 4, and every time I'm seeing better results. Often I am glad to use it and trade a goblin or two, to take out an X/2 or X/3; I am not glad to do it, but more often than not for me it's not a dead card. As the description says, it is purely a meta thing, faeries, birds, elves, and goblin everywhere.

Tormod's Crypt definitely seems better, I actually hadn't noticed that it has been printed as a common. Thanks.

Inflame deals damage to creatures that have dealt damage, not ones that have been dealt damage. It clearly is 10 times worse than Pyroclasm, but that isn't common, so I have deal with 2 toughness creatures any way I can. I have been wanting to try out Swirling Sandstorm, but I am not too optimistic about i because of the mana cost.

Here are some suggestions, in no particular order:

The cantrips shouldn't necessarily go into the deck but I think they're good value for being so cheap to cast. I'll post some more when I think of them

Have you considered Raze over Simian Spirit Guide? They're both effectively 1 for 2's that advance your game plan, but Raze is a turn faster than ramping into a 3-mana land destruction card, and it feeds the graveyard for your delve cards, rather than exiling from your hand. Also, a copy or two of Swirling Sandstorm might help to hedge against any creatures that make it onto the battlefield in the first couple turns, and it plays nice with your Delve cards if you wanted to play something like Faithless Looting to smooth your draws, which is kind of essential in a deck that requires you to one-for-one each land that hits the battlefield, while also hitting three lands early.
