Hey MPriest....its Pasic. Neat deck but i dont see the use of Thud only Deadbridge Goliath has a graveyard effect .... so instead consider Go for Blood, Hunt the Weak, Pit Fight or Savage Punch. No graveyard if thats what you want, but same damage and keep your creature.

Thanks DBCooper! I had playtested Heartfire and found that the 2cmc was too much in the early game; but Thud isn't ideal either since it's at sorcery speed. I'll put in the Collateral Damage right away.

Great deck! Looking to build something similar myself. Just a heads up, Fling and Thud won't be copied by Kalamax because sacrificing him is part of the casting cost. Gravitic Punch and Chandra's Ignition should be good though.

Well, if you never had any problems with Kiln Fiend then keep it. There's no reason to change what has been working out fine. Just as a thought provoker, you can have Monastery Swiftspear to think about.

Maybe just bad wasn't the best thing to say about Rakdos Shred-Freak . It's just that it offers basically nothing more than haste. You have cards like Hellspark Elemental , as you mentioned, but also:

  1. Earthshaker Khenra - Makes it easier to get to your opponent while also being reusable from the grave in the late game, and even bigger than before.

  2. Ash Zealot - More of a Siboard card, but still, 2 mana for first strike, haste and punishes your opponent for playing cards from your graveyard.

  3. Vexing Devil - Dont't know if you could fit this guy in your budget, but it's amazing. It's either a one mana 4/3 that your opponent will have to waste a removal spell or a one mana 4 damage spell.

However, the real reason I said Rakdos Shred-Freak is bad is because of...

Thunderkin Awakener - It can reanimate all of your (elemental) suicide bombers while attacking. So for only two mana, you can from 4 damage on board, with Thunderkin Awakener and Spark Elemental , to up to 8 damage with the Firecat. You could also put other cards in for him, like Lightning Skelemental and Spark Trooper , but those would require you to adjust the manabase.

Also, since you're playing these cheap suicide bombers you could use Unearth to reanimate them again and hit for a bunch. However, I'm not sure that splashing to black would appeal to you.

Another suicide bomber could be Impetuous Devils , though I don't have much to say about it. You can basically take out one of your opponent's creature by forcing them to block. Just here as an option for you.

Cards like Thud , Fling and Flesh / Blood (the blood half only) should prove themselves more useful than Soul's Fire . Since most of your creatures are dying anyway, there should be no problem in sacrificing them.

Manabasewise, if really want to keep Reality Smasher you can add lands that have a better utility than Rogue's Passage as most of your creatures have trample anyway, so your opponent will regardless always have trouble preventing damage.

I've been writing a lot today, so right now I won't go on too much detail about these "utility" lands. I'll just list some here and you can say if you liked any or none and I'll glady discuss about it.

Just as a curiosty, I've written so many cards in this comment that TappedOut won't let me mark more suggestions, while most not even appearing for me to suggest.

sweet deck. i'm still getting used to pioneer but have you considered Fireblade Artist / Thud for dreadhorde butcher/ Rekindling Phoenix / Theater of Horrors ?

I like the ideas you have here, though I'm not quite sure where Bazaar Trader fits in as you're not exactly trading anything nor do you have anything that would have them at a disadvantage if they had it, i.e. Sleeper Agent . That being said, have you considered Kari Zev's Expertise ? It feels like a strictly better version of Act of Treason and it allows you to play Thud for free. Also Yahenni, Undying Partisan feels like he would be a solid sacrifice outlet for this deck since it is free and he just gets better as the game goes on. Whip of Erebos and Dictate of Erebos could help with some recursion and double your removal. Hope this helps.

bradtheimpaler13 Thanks for the suggestions! I will keep them in mind as I move forward with the deck. Addressing your suggestions one at a time; I don't think Rite of Consumption holds up. Thud has a lower CMC, Fling is an Instant, and other cards like Soul's Fire allow Grevan to do the damage which is relevant for Tainted Strike . If I end up moving towards more combat tricks it will go in though. I'm going to playtest with Clackbridge Troll but I don't think the deck needs the draw and to me that is the only advantage of the card
