Tears of Valakut Discussion

I tested this against Hellbent Amonwolves (AKH); here are a few thoughts ...

  • Falkenrath Gorger seems a little underwhelming. Maybe Bloodlust Inciter (as an enabler), Village Messenger  Flip (early-game value, plus great vs. control decks), or Bomat Courier (for some mid-game cards)?
  • Especially early in the season (when I suspect everyone will be trying them out), you may want some more answers for the Gods in sideboard. Burn from Within maybe (though it might require more lands)? Or Soul-Scar Mage (though it might require more Burn spells). Hmmm ...
  • I think you'll probably want some flyer hate in sideboard too. I really like Tears of Valakut and Clip Wings, but I'm trying out Vines of the Recluse too, because of the synergy with Exert.

I know you asked for thoughts on dealing with Sweltering Suns, but I frankly have no idea ...

By the way, I'm not sure why T/O is acting up with Bloodrage Brawler, Combat Celebrant, and Sweltering Suns, but they display properly if you add "(AKH)" after the card name.

Draw well!

You bet!

Not sure where you are on brewing, but I think Argeaux's +1/+1 counter brew was the strongest archetype in KLD standard. Plus it got some extra tools in AER.

I personally LOVE the Silverfur Partisan Wolf Token archetype. But it's frankly way too unreliable to be competitive anywhere but on a kitchen table.

Also: Tears of Valakut.

Good luck (and good skill) with the brew!

My thoughts for updates to the deck ahead of this Fridays FNM:

I would go Dynavolt Tower and Renegade Map and focus back on Energy. Renegade Map fixes the mana, triggers revolt and adds damage for Unlicensed Disintegration. Dynavolt Tower deals better with Saheeli Rai than Shock I think. Consider Tears of Valakut for the sideboard against Heart of Kiran and Archangel Avacyn  Flip.

JakeandJoelareMagic, you can check my built at Boros Dwarf-nought.I'm considering both Shock or Chandra's Pyrohelix to clear the chump blocker.I prepared 3 Hijack in sideboard if opponent guard with fatty/flyer. Alternatively Tears of Valakut or Incendiary Flow

Baral, Chief of Compliance fits in well here. Tears of Valakut seems to be more of an exclusively side board card
