Vandalblast Discussion

landofMordor on Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

Use Mistveil Plains and no other "put on bottom" effects. You can fetch the Plains via Arid Mesa or other Plains-fetches, since it has the subtype.

I said to use Comet Storm because it wins the game for you once you get infinite mana. It is redundant because you can win by any infinite-mana combo plus one burn-x spell, but since there are TONS of burn-x cards, you can put in multiple copies to have effectively 4-6 redundant combo pieces. Normal burn like Lightning Bolt is useless in cEDH, but infinite burn wins. For a "one combo, multiple paths", look at any cEDH Doomsday decks.

That is the only type of combo that matters in cEDH -- either completely lock out opponents for the rest of the game, or win the game immediately. To use a counterexample, your Personal Sanctuary + Wily Goblin + Pyrohemia combo is what's referred to as a "cute" combo: it's neat on paper and in casual, but in cEDH games it stinks because it doesn't win; all it does is kill weak creatures that true cEDH decks don't need by turn 5 (which is when you'd untap after casting Pyrohemia). You should be WINNING by turn 5 in cEDH, not just killing utility creatures.

Here's why the Lantern and its friends are bad: it costs 1 card (itself) and 5+ mana to use. Its benefit is putting a card into your library. That's pretty okay if you're going to do Sunforger shenanigans, but it's TERRIBLE for anything that's not an instant (such as the Gamble "combo"), because at that point there's no upside. Are you seriously hoping to shuffle your library and maybe draw the card you put onto the bottom of your library? That might work in casual, but it's a much weaker game plan in cEDH, when you could be spending that card and that mana on something like Vandalblast, which costs the same mana to overload, but I'd argue it is a much better use of mana. And that's just the first example I could think of. The Plains is good because it takes a land slot, not a spell slot, and can net-GAIN you mana as its worst case.

All the Fork things are bad, since they're only good if you have a good target and extra mana, at which point you should be winning already. Disrupt Decorum is fine, but is bad against combo decks (like most cEDH decks).

Void Winnower only affects your opponents.

You don't need anything to pull from exile. Why waste a card and a mana on re-buying a win condition when you could just play a second win condition? Also, there's no such thing as good lifegain in EDH unless it's part of an infinite combo -- as you said yourself, plain burn is bad in cEDH, and none of your opponents care about your life total when they're just going to win with Laboratory Maniac.

Cool burn deck!

Here are a few ideas.

Cards I would take out : Acidic Soil, Faithless Looting, Smash, Fall of the Titans Bitter Feud, Endless One, Shivan Dragon

Cards I would add : Jaya Ballard, Insurrection, Scourge of the Throne, Browbeat, Past in Flames, Vandalblast, Steel Hellkite

Hope this helps!

Cheers

I've been testing a wishboard in my own Zada list with Burning Wish as a way to grab things I wouldn't want in the main deck, a la answer cards such as Blasphemous Act and Vandalblast.

It gives a lot of flexibility to the deck, especially if you run cantrips in the wishboard as well to turn the wish into another enabler if need be.

Godo, Bandit Warlord is great, reason for not being in deck is high cmc and even higher problem not knowing what to cut currently only creature i dont like is Burnished Hart never get to untap my mana to sac it for lands.

Well Sarkhan's Unsealing is a winner from M19, while as suggested above Dragonspeaker Shaman could be useful if you're looking for Dragon-related ramp. I don't know how you're finding the mana base but personally I get by with 35 for my Scion deck so you might be able to free up a couple of spaces there. As for dragons that haven't been mentioned yet there's Tyrant's Familiar, Scourge of Valkas or of course Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon if you're feeling mean. Can't beat Vandalblast for artifact hate. Finally, Spit Flame is great for EDH where being able to re-use spells is very relevant!

Just a quick suggestion from my side...run Vandalblast and Mystical Tutor - the combo with Vandalblast and Mycosynth Lattice is insane. I won multiple games like this. You literally wipe your opponents' whole board, including lands.

Cool deck I would recommend Darksteel Forge or Faith's Reward to protect against Vandalblast

DrukenReaps on Bludgeon Brawl | Tiana EDH

So I was just poking around another deck and the builder of it pointed out he could equip lands for to Kemba, Kha Regent or Valduk, Keeper of the Flame with Bludgeon Brawl and Mycosynth Lattice. Might be worth really thinking about that lattice. You do become more vulnerable to say Vandalblast though...
