Viashino Heretic Discussion

Alright can definitely give you some ideas than Salinas29!

Since you are playing in large pods some cards that can definitely help you would be:

Now for the big creatures that can provide additional utility effects, here are some cards that can be considered:

Importantly as well is to have some early game plan, ramp, CA, and utility spells. Here are some cards that can be also considered.

The best route if you want to inflict a lot of pain is going for the big Eldrazis but I won't list them as they are quite expensive even after the reprint in UMA. If you can pick them up than definitely go for it! They are absolutely filthy creatures that would make people cry :3

Aside from that feel free to ask for any additional help, I love helping people tune their decks!

Just for standard good red EDH cards, have you considered Viashino Heretic or Stranglehold?

For a sac outlet maybe consider Phyrexian Altar over Altar of Dementia. It costs more, but the mana may be more important than the mill. Also Semblance Anvil may be good in your deck. Exile an artifact creature under it, an all your creatures and artifacts cost less.

Fixing mana issues and other changes.

In: Needle Spires, Prairie Stream, Wandering Fumarole, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, Darksteel Mutation, Trophy Mage, Viashino Heretic

Out: 1x Island, 2x Mountain, 1x Plains, Duergar Hedge-Mage, Angel of Jubilation, Pilgrim's Eye

Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep is objectively better than a regular Mountain in most scenarios.

I really like the Duergar Hedge-Mage, but I want to add more nonbasics, so it will become less and less reliable. Viashino Heretic is more practical.

I don't like the 3W required to cast Angel of Jubilation. On the other hand, Darksteel Mutation is cheaper, more broad in function, and completely hoses certain commander-reliant decks.

I always found Pilgrim's Eye to be kind of lame. I'm replacing it a Trophy Mage. It can search for Steel Golem, Burnished Hart, or Sunforger. A threat, a ramp-card, or the most powerful equipment in EDH. (I know this is kind of ironic, because Pilgrim's Eye, if it were to remain in the deck, could be tutored with Trophy Mage. But why would I do that?)

+1 Cool list, some of the one time burn creatures may be a little under powered in a 40 life format though.

I run a Mogis, God of Slaughter deck that runs pretty quick, might be worth a look if you like this play style.

Some mono red all stars in my deck are Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs to keep people from swinging at you when you piss them off, Viashino Heretic for removal and more burn, and more punish enchantments like Manabarbs, Burning Earth, Spellshock and Citadel of Pain. Any of those I think would slot in nicely to this list.

More changes! More colorless creatures to windmill slam for free. Also, more direct damage to keep Rakdos leading the team to victory!

The loss of disruption against control players sucks a bit. These changes (and other recent changes) make the deck more consistent. I'll revisit anti-control tactics after I see how these changes turn out.
