The Flame of Keld Discussion

JakeHarlow on KeldSnipe

@ kdown:

That's awesome, I'm glad you gave the list a whirl. Mana flooding can definitely be an issue, the 24-land build is simply here because of the importance of having 5 mana on Turn 5. Perhaps Bomat Courier is the answer to smoothing this over. It doesn't gain bonus damage from The Flame of Keld's stage 3, but the extra card draw could be a big deal, especially after we play The Flame of Keld and can then discard our non-hand to draw several cards. Please give it a try and comment back here to tell me how it went. What was your record overall?

vomitpile on Counter burn : Guttersnipe is back

BR is another good choice for Guttersnipe, getting access to Sovereign's Bite as another good way to leverage playing against aggro. Sword-Point Diplomacy is pretty solid also, and this lets you go heavier on creatures like Viashino Pyromancer and Soul-Scar Mage since you are almost mono red splashing black. Without a massive payoff card like Kiln Fiend or Delver of Secrets  Flip, UR blitz/counterburn type decks just don't feel worth it to me since burn to the face is a much more proactive gameplan but that's totally personal preference. The Flame of Keld, Doublecast, Abrade and Banefire are some other solid choices. Good luck.

I’m not sold on Supplier over Insolent Neonate. You have no way of killing it to trigger the second mill other than chumping with it which might be hard to achive in some matchups. Neonate seems much faster imo.

Scourge Devil also seem underwhelming to me. I belive Rally the Peasants or Driven / Despair is a better option.

I’ve been experimenting with The Flame of Keld in my dredge deck. At the early stages of playtesting it has wirked better than expected. Check out Flaming Dredge

I feel Combat Celebrant would be better than Countryside Crusher

Bomat Courier or The Flame of Keld instead of Memnite could help with draw

Lightning Berserker could be fun to dash and blast someone

Thanks for the upvote DMFF! I definitely have thought about The Flame of Keld, the only trouble is I am not sure whether to add it to my sideboard or into my mainboard? And if I put it in my mainboard, what should I cut?

NotControlPlater I actually just went 3-1 last Friday with a pre-M19 version of this deck, losing only to mono red The Flame of Keld (which seems like my literal worst matchup anyway). I did cut one of the Chromiums for one copy of The Eldest Reborn, but I think Search for Azcanta  Flip is way too strong in this deck to not play, making sure that my earlier draws are good and providing insane card advantage in the late game with the help of Teferi, Hero of Dominaria. I have also replaced Anticipate with Chart a Course; I know that they both do basically the same thing, but I have really liked having a lot of filtering/card draw in the deck, and Chart a Course has actually been great. The Scarab God is a card that I have considered playing, but I believe that Chromium will be a stronger card in the control matchup and my aggro matchup is already quite good. Thanks for the comment!

This is a really neat deck for a budget for sure! Have you considered trying out The Flame of Keld? FANTASTIC card in any mono-red deck. I have a version of this deck that runs them called Keld's Flamewhack Goblins. Our decks are very similar, but I really like the sideboard tech of moon control you add. +1 from me for sure!

DistortionSlayer on Oh why did it have to be Goblins?

2 weeks ago

My "expert opinion" (from playing a very similar deck) is that you drop Renegade Tactics (maybe sideboard it if your worried about huge blockers like Gigantosaurus) add in +1 Bomat Courier, The Flame of Keld, and Goblin Chainwhirler. Chainwhirler need to be a four-of because I have seen this happen: they have Gigantosaurus you have 9 life, you play a 3rd Goblin Chainwhirler with Soul-Scar Mage on the field and now you have 9 damage first striking, thats insane. Keld needs to be a four-of because you run out of hand so fast and for that same reason you could use four Bomat Courier. All in all summery: -3 Renegade Tactics, +1 +1 +1 Bomat Courier, The Flame of Keld, and Goblin Chainwhirler.
