Throne of the God-Pharaoh Discussion
11 hours ago
Thanks for the feedback. Yes, in the deck that I sleeved for FNM I replaced Root Snare with Blossoming Defense. I am a bit betwixt and between over whether to go for the blanket fog or protect a single card that could be more valuable in the long run - might need to test options.
Blanchwood Armor is a bit of a win-more card if I am stalling, but is fun if your opponent can't get rid of it immediately. If nothing else it forces your opponent to play out their counter spells and enchantment removal and if you have surplus mana and card advantage that is not a bad thing.
The point in adding Llanowar Scout to the stall deck is that you get a free tap to do damage with Throne of the God-Pharaoh. Yes, against control Thorn Lieutenant could end up generating a lot of tokens that give you another win-con and if I could also play something like Cryptolith Rite, he would certainly be in the deck. It seems that I have a lot to think about and various options to test.
As far as Vine Mare goes, what can I say - that card is broken. For now I want to try and keep to elf tribal, but have been considering building a horse deck with Vine Mare, Crested Sunmare and a mix of elves and cats, but still need to work out a few ideas.

Blanchwood Armor on Marwyn, the Nurturer is definitely one of those super crazy explosive plays that really opens up a lot of room to play in! That being said it makes really large creatures however the major weakness of this deck isn't necessarily not having big enough bodies but ways to push the damage through with evasion. It has made me think about maybe running something like Talons of Wildwood which is nice because it gives me ways to push through damage and somewhere to sink extra mana.
Throne of the God-Pharaoh with dorks is actually an idea that I played with in a different deck a little while ago and I think might actually be a pretty sweet idea here! Playing it with Rishkar, Peema Renegade is a neat idea and definitely worth exploring since it is a more consistent way to close out the game.

After the release of M19, played a draft and ended up getting a lot of value from Blanchwood Armor. Opens up a few opportunities, Blanchwood Armor on Marwyn, the Nurturer can provide a huge mana-boost. Blanchwood Armor on Steel Leaf Champion makes a powerful attacking or blocking creature, etc.
A secondary theme that I have been experimenting with is to play your 8 mana-dorks with Throne of the God-Pharaoh and backing this up with a few Rishkar, Peema Renegade. Tap all your creatures by attacking, or for mana and then do some direct damage with Throne of the God-Pharaoh

Your mileage may vary, but if it were my deck, I'd consider the following changes. Mainly a bunch of ideas to shop from, depending on how much you want to lean on Impact Tremors as your main/sole strategy
Maybe Add or Sideboard:

garruk3 Thank you! I thought about Glissa when I was running Throne of the God-Pharaoh's. I feel like she fits better in a Chord of Calling build instead of Lead since you can grab her like a silver bullet. I dig Promenade but the cost is too high and it would compete with Leads. Fun thing about Promenade though is just like Prowess of the Fair you can tap it for mana via Heritage Druid

The second half of Grind can not be played as it is a white spell.
Skinrender, Sakura-Tribe Elder, and Sidisi, Undead Vizier all seem sweet in this deck. I know it goes against killing the entire board slowly, Cryptolith Rite can ramp you like crazy, especially fun with a Throne of the God-Pharaoh out.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh is legendary (and a "win more" card) so I would never run more than 2 at a time.
I would expect to see Shock mainboard!
I LOVE how Skirk Prospector and Dark-Dweller Oracle can remove your goblins from the board in the case of fighting lifelinking creatures or being targeted by Ixalan's Binding that 1 mana is pretty easy to put right into a Shock!
In my mono-red deck I have to say that Bomat Courier is a FANTASTIC card! Also Fanatical Firebrand is very underrated. Opponent's HATE seeing that 1 damage finisher sitting there, turning profitable blocks into a losing deal.
Insult is AMAZING!
Good luck man!
Since you don't have Cabal Stronghold in red there is NO need to run only basic lands. But what's the best utility land to run in mono-red? Grasping Dunes. Seriously! I like it WAY better in my mono-red than Scavenger Grounds or Field of Ruin (Both of which get more useful the LONGER a game goes... not a thing mono-red should have to worry about) Grasping Dunes looks simple and cheap, but it's still very effective. Try it out!
If I were to remove any cards from your mainboard I would cut 1 of your 5-drop Vanquisher's Banner first. having 2 in your starting hand will HURT, and happen pretty often if you run 4.
Wily Goblin is "fine" but not great. I'd put his tiny butt on the sidelines.

Nice deck man! Badass names always get me.
I, as you did, dwelled many times into the realm of Mill in EDH: I hope to be helpful.
I'd suggest you to remove Throne of the God-Pharaoh, since you want to keep your creatures up for defense, and just tap them to mill with Phenax's effect right before the start of your turn (last opponent's end step). Probably you are more concerned on attacking than I do with my deck, but still.
I'd suggest swapping out Blood Reckoning for Marchesa's Decree, since the second one does exactly the same thing plus making you the Monarch. Other such cards that love combat hate are: Propaganda, Silent Arbiter, Riddlekeeper, Collective Restraint (even though it's pricy).
I'll take into consideration some of your cards for my personal mill deck. Feel free to take a look at mine, so that you can get inspired too!
