Vial Smasher the Fierce Discussion

mozz on I need a good red, ...

1 day ago

I also built a grixis deck recently, but my drive was Cruel Ultimatum, so I chose Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge. I also run Vial Smasher the Fierce, who I recommend a lot!

BlueMageBrandon on I need a good red, ...

I've thought a lot about this and I came up with Vial Smasher the Fierce and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus. None of the other Grixis Commanders really lend themselves well to a Grixis goodstuff deck. Jeleva is a spellslinger commander, Nekusar is a wheel/card draw general, etc. That, and Vial Smasher being so good, led my to look at the partners. We don't want Silas Renn, Seeker Adept because you're not making an artifact deck and so that leaves you with choosing from Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and Ludevic himself. Since Ludevic helps your opponents, I opted for Kraum, even though you'll rarely cast him (but in those few instances that you'd want him, he's better than Ludevic).

I hope this helps!

Snap157 on Rakdos; Burn It Down

3 days ago

Alrighty then let's get you all set!

You've got some big things and that's not bad with your commander, but you'll need some cheaper burn spells if Rakdos can really work. With that being said, Lightning Bolt, Lava Spike, Bump in the Night, and Rift Bolt are your best friends. As for land base, try to shy away from basics, but add in as many rakdos duals that don't come in tapped as possible. I'll get you started down below.

While using rakdos, keep in mind that he takes away only colorless mana, so huge eldrazi such as Void Winnower, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Desolation Twin and It That Betrays can all go out for free if you play it right.

It's also important to keep in mind that the ability only impacts creatures, so super expensive things like Din of the Fireherd, Subterranean Tremors don't belong.

Furthermore, there are some cards that don't work too well in an aggro build like this and could use an upgrade. Take out:

replace with:

With these changes as well as the ones mentioned above, you'll be well on your way to a hated deck! Good luck!

KingMathoro on Lyzolda combo help

6 days ago

Some cards I found that could be useful are, Sorin Markov, Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Vial Smasher the Fierce, Heartstone, Goblin Assault, Flameshadow Conjuring, Grafted Exoskeleton, Havoc Festival, and Everlasting Torment. Again these are things I found that could be useful. Hope this helps in some way

Wurmspiralmaschine14 on Saskia Goblins (please help!)

1 week ago

If this is going to be a goblin-themed deck, you should look into getting a copy of Goblin Lackey or Warren Instigator. Purphoros, God of the Forge is an almost must in goblin token decks, as he deals mass damage to all opponents very easily and can boost the team with spare mana, so he should be in the main board. I think Saskia is a good commander, as you probably wouldn't get too much damage off of Vial Smasher the Fierce and would just end up annoying other players into attacking you and there are too many anthem cards for Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa's ability to be super useful.

Phobos493 on Epic Experiment!

1 week ago

I love the deck! Fun little deck; however, a couple ideas? I'll steal an idea from Josh and why don't we make this 4 colors? We don't change much, let's just change Ludavic to Vial Smasher the Fierce. With big X spells, he may be able to throw a lot of damage around. But why? I think the deck relies on Epic Experiment too much, so I think another X spell that loves mana would be cool. Let's add Villainous Wealth! It's another win condition that will also synergize with everything we already have. Also, maybe add a couple mana doublers?

Redace878 on Official missing/incorrect card/token thread

Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Vial Smasher the Fierce, and possibly some other partner commanders don't have a price listed. Also, many fuse cards and double cards (Wear / Tear for example) don't have prices.
