I like the idea of doing a board wipes while you have Vicious Shadows out and I think you have the right idea here but maybe you could use a few key cards. Have you thought about Mirage Mirror you could have it bocome a copy of vicious shadows befor you wipe the board

resplendentobscurity on Wort Deck Wins

Hello!

I saw your post over on Reddit, and thought I'd take a peek since I also run a Wort deck.

I'm not exactly sure what Red Deck Wins is SUPPOSED to feel like, but... here are some suggestions for combos that I run in my deck.

Kyren Negotiations - looks like you're making lots of tokens, it combos with Throne of the God-Pharaoh, and doesn't require haste.

In a similar vein, Furystoke Giant does the same thing plus it can combo with something like Goblin Bombardment + Fresh Meat and a haste enabler. I also see you have Outpost Siege, which can add that additional damage from the sacrifice, and, to add on that, Vicious Shadows ends games quickly.Fresh Meat is also a great way to recover from a board wipe.

Conspiring something like Clan Defiance and Decimate can be a huge blowout for someone else.

Nullmage Shepherd has also been really good.

Also adding some recursion spells like Revive and Recollect that you can loop with something like Early Harvest to make a huge Empty the Warrens, or burn people off with Guttersnipe might be something to consider? I run a Paradox Engine + Cryptolith Rite for this combo, but may be out of your budget considerations?

Your deck seems to be more dedicated to the attack step than mine is - perhaps consider Chancellor of the Forge or Revel of the Fallen God for more hasty tokens? - Though I find Revel is really only worth it if I can conspire it.

Also, Mogg Infestation for lols - I've used it to wipe someone's board / double or quadruple my tokens - a conspired Mogg with 10 creatures and an Impact Tremors is a win, unless someone is running heavy life gain.

I also have a ton of ramp, so conspiring an X spell is definitely a win con - which also have the utility to be used as removal if need be. Speaking of ramp Harrow is pretty good when copied.

Not sure how combo centred you want your deck, but I do find I win fairly often with the way I'm running things - and it has that 'burn your opponents out' kind of feel. I'm not sure how your deck is currently running so it's hard to make pointed criticisms / suggestions - so take them or leave them :) also here's the link to mine if you're curious.

Also, Vicious Shadows is great for when and if your plans turn sideways. It is a great way to win through a boardwipe

Isn't that the same thing?LOL It's got both but mostly combo. Anointed Procession, Vicious Shadows, Panharmonicon, and Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain.

Well the good news is, red in cmdr has been getting some love from wizards of the coast, and has been addressing the issues with it's color in cmdr. I'd build it for casual. A red flying deck with board wipes like Earthquake, Mizzium Mortars, and Sudden Demise so that your board is always unaffected by your wraths. You could have the strong enchantments like Warstorm Surge, Sarkhan's Unsealing, and Vicious Shadows to win the game.

All this sounds good but I think it would still be a stronger deck if you had Lathliss, Dragon Queen as the cmdr because most red flying creatures are dragons.

Red has 180ish flying creatures. 83 of them are dragons.

Good luck with you build. I want to see it when it's done.

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder May be too Risky to play since you can't always control when he comes into play and with only two on demand sac outlets. Harvester of Souls Should draw about the same number of cards and has "may" in his card draw ability.

I'm not seeing any ways to deal with problematic enchantments or artifacts other than Brutalizer Exarch. World Breaker might be your next best bet, but Acidic Slime is usable too.

Since your deck relies so much on attacking Revel in Riches is a good alternate win condition in case of lockdowns. Another possible alternative is Warstorm Surge or maybe Vicious Shadows.

Brion Stoutarm of course. Slave of Bolas. I'm curious to what exact effects are you looking for because. If you have a scary boardstate of creatures facing you cards like Shriveling Rot in respose to a board wipe can do some serious damage. Also Vicious Shadows.
