Abyssmal_Bard on Calvacade of Chandra's [Budget]

kirakazumi Thanks for the explanation, I did not realize Chandra's Spitfire worked so effectively with Cavalcade of Calamity it just seemed janky to me.

Alternatively, may I suggest adding Torch Courier or Thunderkin Awakener for a faster early game and potential haste for your other creatures.

Maybe you can change the Torch Courier for two copies of Skirk Prospector for mana fuel and two copies of Vanquisher's Banner for card draw

Thanks for the comment The_Dark_Adonis,

Yes there is a clear weakness here. If you play Guttersnipe late in the game, when you are re-playing 4 or 5 instants per turn (using the effect of Feather, the Redeemed ), it becomes a very strong card. It does, however, add very little value to the early game. Torch Courier is a strong first turn play that adds nothing later in the game. Skirk Prospector could work as an early chump-blocker, or give you 1 extra red mana - nice, but certainly not a game-changer.

I started this deck with Tajic, Legion's Edge and Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice in that slot, but wanted to reduce the mana curve and increase tempo. Another option that I did consider was to replace Guttersnipe with Ajani's Pridemate and try to bring in Moment of Triumph or Fountain of Renewal . That would give you a spread of creatures that collect +1/+1 counters before attacking behind Adamant Will or Sheltering Light . I suppose that the biggest reason that I didn't go down that road is that I wanted to try to keep a balance between and .

There is clearly room for improvements, which will hopefully become clear after a few rounds of play-testing at FNM's, or even in Arena

If you swap out Guttersnipes for Skirk Prospector or Torch Courier you should be able to get off the ground more quickly. While Guttersnipe is an interesting idea you probably wolnt have more than 1 maybe 2 at best on the field at any point and 5-10 instant/sorceries takes longer than 2-3 combats with Vindicator , Feather , and Tajic . You could remove Spellgorger Weird instead but it's more useful if you only have a few spells and Feather isn't out.

otters I really love Final Fortune and I'm trying to find a room for it. Sword of Feast and Famine is here for the only combo that doesn't require Frenetic Efreet . It's slow but really useful if I lose the efreet. I cut Fury of the Horde because I couldn't always find 2 red cards to pay the alternative cost and was too often a dead card in my hand, but it has a great potential and maybe I will give it another try.

I was searching for some haste enablers and these two goblins can be great, especially Torch Courier , thank you!

As a zndrsplt and okuan connoisseur myself, I think that Final Fortune is quite good and underplayed. I would consider cutting Sword of Feast and Famine because I imagine that the equip cost is often too much if you are trying to kill with okuan that turn. Fury of the Horde is also quite excellent, due to mana efficiency. I run Goblin Motivator and Torch Courier as well, because they give okaun haste without costing any mana the turn you play him.

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Hi Sir_Flash,

In Mardu () it's easier to Tutor (and lower CMC) for Artifacts like Lightning Greaves than creatures. Steelshaper's Gift & Stoneforge Mystic . Also Swiftfoot Boots & Lightning Greaves both provide Hexproof (Shroud) which also helps, and they are recursive (Equipments), whereas Torch Courier and Generator Servant are one time (Although Generator Servant also ramps, but Kaalia of the Vast only has not anyway).

Imperial Recruiter is about the only way to tutor them successfully, and it's CMC3.

Creatures also a little easier (generally) to remove than artifacts too.

Yo i am a Kaalia player as well. My deck is also combo, but i dipped down heavy on cmc and and focused more on light stax and razaketh lines. I was using kiki at one point but ultimately I felt i was running myself thin with too many wincons. I love your deck, why not run Torch Courier and Generator Servant over Swiftfoot?
