PTsmitty on It's a slippery slope

3 weeks ago

A couple of cards I thought could be considered for removal are:
All Is Dust - The sacrifice includes you so you risk losing your commander and the enchantments you run that lower you instant and sorcery cost. It is a good board wipe, but could be a dead card if you do not want to risk loosing all of your stuff as well.
Fumble - This card feels like a meta based card. If you run into a lot of enchantment based decks you can include it, but if it is for a "off chance" situation you could probably remove it.
Volt Charge - I know it provides proliferate, but not sure how much 3 damage will factor into an EDH game. Early on it is a good card, but let game it probably will not affects things too much.

These are a couple of suggestions I thought of, but of course you know your Meta and what cards are fun that you want to include.

I built a very similar deck! I use Volt Charge and Grim Affliction to add counters to the Unleashed creatures as well as act as control. I also run Scar because proliferate. The decklist is on my profile here. I dig your deck, budget Rakdos is awesome :)

AwesomeKyurem5 on What!? Your deck is leveling up!?

I love the idea. The only thing I would change is I would swap out Venerated Teacher and replace him with Echo Mage. It's ultimately your call as it would burn up more mana in the process, but you wouldn't have to level him up very much to start copying spells which would, theoretically, cause all your creatures to level up much faster. Imagine playing Volt Charge with Inexorable Tide on the field. That alone would be two levels to everything with levels, but then use Echo Mage's level 4 ability to cause you to play Volt Charge two more times, meaning up to 4 levels on your entire line for 5 mana. This is an absolutely best case situation, but he can also be used for other utility like essentially using Cyclonic Rift with overload for 3 less mana. As I mentioned, up to you, as more mana would be needed for his levels and to keep his ability readily available.

Cool Commander!

Have you ever tested with some Proliferate cards like Contagion Clasp, Grim Affliction, Spread the Sickness, Throne of Geth, or Volt Charge?

Happy brewing!

What do you think of Virulent Wound or Volt Charge or even Contagion Engine? Proliferate could be very good here

@AJ@THE@MAN Suggestion added to the maybe board.

@willis1234 Volt Charge could work if someone was willing to run mountains, but considering everything else requires swamps it seems counter-intuitive to run this card.

@DjNotturn0 Conscious* :)

@SoakingDrop52 I agree Phyrexian Crusader is strong, but it's also been in the maybe board since day 1 (for those willing to break budget)!

Thanks again to everyone for taking the time to comment!

Volt Charge could be a nice addition.
