Unstable Footing Discussion

Neotrup on Beating protection from colors

Pyroclasm can kill Etched Champion, but won't normally. Casting something like Unstable Footing will stop the damage prevention portion of Protection so that untargeted damage like Pyroclasm, Volcanic Fallout, or Pyrohemia can get rid of it. Also casting the spell after the Campion blocks a colored creature will let combat damage hit it. Otherwise destroying enough artifacts to turn off Metalcraft, blocking with a colorless creature, or using a board wipe are you best options. Colorless targeted removal like Scour from Existence or Unstable Obelisk also work.

Ah I see, I didn't consider the option of playing it twice in the same turn. Makes sense.

Since you are generally trying to end the game with a single attack, do ever find cards like Fog give you problems? If so, have you considered Unstable Footing or Wild Slash?

Lash Out is probably my favourite budget burn spell for lists like this, but I've found Flame Jab/Geistflame/Burning Vengeance to be a fun package for ultra-budget burn making use of the discards and filtering lands. I'm a fan of Electrickery/Inflame, Earthquake, Firespout, Slagstorm, Street Spasm, Pyroclasm, Kindle the Carnage, Volcanic Fallout, Martyr of Ashes for crowd control. Fiery Gambit, Incendiary CommandThe big thing with budget lists is always sideboard- Aura Barbs, Boil, Empty the Warrens, Ingot Chewer, Molten Rain, Rending Volley, Roast, Shattering Spree, Weight of Spires, Sudden Shock, Smash to Smithereens Tormod's Crypt, Dragon's Claw, Bottle Gnomes and Shattering Blow can all find their place. Burst Lightning is a cheap shock upgrade and Furnace Scamp can be more efficient than a bolt if you are removing blockers. Unstable Footing/Wild Slash is pretty useful for that final push.

I'd play one-kick a copy of Blessing to the sideboard and take out an Unstable Footing.

used a similar deck this last saturday tourney. Unstable Footing from SB saved me against fog kind of decks. Also, i pulled out Stormchaser Mage for a Nivmagus Elemental that my friend told me to put in the main. it doesn't quite hit the mark so i SB'ed it. It was good against control decks. :) my standing was 3-1. I lost to a monoblack vampire deck that hit me hard with Diabolic Edict and Geth's Verdict. SB'ed 2 Stubborn Denial and 2 Not of This World but when i drew it, i run out of cards for a one-turn-kill. So i'm kinda stuck when against that kind of decks. :)
