Warstorm Surge Discussion

I to have a RURIC THAR!!!! deck because one person in my play group had a Narset, Enlightened Master deck which was no fun to play against. Warstorm Surge might be a fun card to add for this deck. Good Luck!

Thanks again for the upvote!

Good suggestions, Mycoloth is a good card for late game but by the time I get him out I already have a trampling 25/25 Thunder-Thrash Elder so its usefulness is questionable. Fling is actually a decent card but a well guessed Fertile Imagination can net me six saprolings for four mana. Warstorm Surge is expensive mana wise while Doubling Season is money expensive...and I don't want to proxy it. This is a more budget deck but Parallel Lives is a cheaper replacement for doubling season.

Love this. I made a commander deck about this. A few tips:Mycoloth is a must have. I'd remove Sprout for three of those. Also, A good removal is Fling, or if you add some ramp by cutting Tuskguard Captain you can add Warstorm Surge. You could possibly replace Second Harvest with Doubling Season so it is a perma-buff and it helps with devouring.

MRDOOM3 on Marchesa EDH - To die or not to die

Drana, Liberator of Malakir works nicely with Marchesa's second ability. You can also consider Yahenni, Undying Partisan as well. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is extremely useful, so you can include him if you're willing to break the bank a little.

Dictate of Erebos is an instant-speed version of Grave Pact, so when someone blocks your guy with a bigger creature, just flash in Dictate for annoyance.

River Kelpie, Sage of Fables, Disciple of Bolas, and Grim Haruspex give nice card advantage. These are also somewhat synergistic with Chasm Skulker.

You can also try out Olivia, Mobilized for War (and/or Olivia Voldaren) and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born for some synergy with Marchesa.

Oona's Blackguard and Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch work as well.

For some more ETB damage, you can put in Warstorm Surge, Goblin Bombardment, and maybe Sneak Attack.

KingMathoro on Burn them.... Burn them all

I am noticing a Goblin theme which means you could run a Goblin Recruiter as for more burn fun there's always Warstorm Surge and let us not forget good old Strionic Resonator because triggering twice even if once per turn is still burning. What are your thoughts?

Panas on Help generating infinite colored/red mana ...

There are a plethora of combos but finding one that doesn't use the graveyard in those colours is tough.

In mardu you could try this to bypass the graveyard: Restoration Angel + Conspiracy for -oh let's say Hippo- and a Warstorm Surge. The surge is interchangeable with other pieces. Conspiracy can be replaced with a different flickerer like Felidar Guardian. This results in a loop where you damage everyone until they are dead.

Honestly trying to bypass the graveyard is tough. Just tutor a hate card to break that Leyline of the Void or that Rest in Peace...

KaraZorEl: With just the little bit I've played this deck in person so far, I was really surprised how many people hate Stax, even though I mention that I'm not using Winter Orb/Static Orb, Smokestack, etc.. which I feel are a lot more punishing. I'm not even running all the MLD that I could at the moment. Oh well.

As for your suggestions - I've had Dictate of the Twin Gods maybeboarded for a while, and Furnace of Rath is on my maybeboard overflow. The only reason I'm not running one of them currently is I don't have enough experience with the deck to know if I can limit the amount the double damage hurts me back. I would love to have another in addition to the Gratuitous Violence I currently run, but I think I need a lot more playtesting before I do that.

I had Warstorm Surge in many, many revisions ago, but took it out because of the cost. Now that I have drastically improved my curve and ramp package, this would be an easy addition back in to maximize the ETB damage. Especially with Coat of Arms and Panharmonicon in the deck.
