Whipflare Discussion

chadsansing on Avacyn, Archangel of Splosions and Fire Hugs!

Very cool concept!

I worry about the fragility of depending on your commander for your combos, although a Boros commander is certainly great for this deck. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, might be the best one for this deck, but I bet Razia, Boros Archangel, would work well, too. I might suggest that Avacyn go in the 99 as a trigger for Repercussion.

Neheb, the Eternal also seems broken for this deck.

Have you ever tested with other creatures and spells that might trigger Repercussion more frequently? With more tutors to fetch for it, like Academy Rector, Idyllic Tutor, and Plea for Guidance?

In terms of spells that might reasonably consistently trigger Repercussion, have you tested with additional, efficient "...damage to each creature" spells like Balefire Dragon, Anger of the Gods, Bloodfire Dwarf, Bloodfire Kavu, Breath of Darigaaz, Caldera Hellion, Cave-In, Chandra, Flamecaller, Devastating Dreams, Faultline, Firespout, Firestorm, Incendiary Command, Pyroclasm, Kozilek's Return, Krark-Clan Shaman, Magma Vein, Martyr of Ashes (+ Proclamation of Rebirth), Meteor Blast, Pyrohemia, Rupture, Ryusei, the Falling Star, Scourge of Kher Ridges, Scouring Sands, Slagstorm, Slice and Dice (cycled), Starstorm, Subterranean Tremors, Sulfurous Blast, Sweltering Suns, Thunder Dragon, Tremor, Electrickery, Volcanic Fallout, Volcanic Spray, Whipflare, or Yamabushi's Storm?

It seems like tutor, ramp, win with direct creature damage is the path to victory with or without Avacyn, so the more cards dedicated to those three things, the better.

Happy brewing!

I like the idea behind this deck, so +1 from me.

I like the maindeck, but I am wondering if you have ideas for a sideboard? The reason I ask is because I put some of the better budget decks on a tab on my profile for other users to use, and I really like seeing decks that have been thought out to the 75.

Have you considered putting in a copy of Tomb of the Spirit Dragon in the main? I've seen it in a few of these affinity style budget builds.

I'd think that it'd go something like

2 Duress

1 Aethersphere Harvester

2 Spreading Seas

2 Echoing Truth

3 Go for the Throat

2 Etched Champion

1 Relic of Progenitus or Tormod's Crypt

2 Whipflare (Might require something like Shivan Reef, Spire of Industry, etc.

sylvannos on Best artifact for an elf ...

I like Staff of Domination because it does...well, everything. The option is always lingering over your opponent's head that you'll go infinite once Elvish Archdruid resolves. The important things are:

  • It can work on its own. If your opponent hits you with something like Whipflare, you can still tap down their Arcbound Ravager, gain life, and draw cards to get back in the game.
  • You can control combat. When you have a couple of lords on the table, being able to attack with a 4/4 Elvish Mystic, then untap it so it can block, can be crucial to racing other aggro decks.

Also, I'm going to shamelessly plug my own Elf deck:

U/G C-c-c-combo Elves!

Modern sylvannos


I'm more partial to full-combo with Nettle Sentinel and Heritage Druid. I've found Lead the Stampede and Summoner's Pact beats Collected Company and Chord of Calling unless you're playing Shaman of the Pack and lots of lords. With Collected Company, I found it underwhelming when I spend 4 mana to flip two 1/1 mana dorks into play.

The main difficulty you'll find playing Elves is how vulnerable you are to Lightning Bolt and red in general. Naya Burn and R/G Tron are by far the worst matchups. You absolutely shit all over everything else when you can empty your hand on by turn 3, restock with Lead the Stampede/Beck / Call, and then still kill them with Craterhoof Behemoth regardless of anything else.

Hi, why don't you play Pyroclasm or Slagstorm over Whipflare? You can hit Affinity with them, without really making any difference on your side of the board.

Whipflare isn't a bad idea. If you're going with other colors Glimmervoid and Spire of Industry are good the latter is better than City of Brass. I am not a fan of Unburial Rites. I think it tries to do to much with the deck.

IggmondVanre Really good suggestions. Thank you very much. Yes its a fantastic deck for fun. Im trying do it competitive too. If it will work, should be a bomb. Turn 1; If you are lucky you can put down completly your hand, draw 1-2 cards and attach equipments for free. gg

Yes, Cranial Plating its the best. The common affinity have the most important keys for improve this deck. Fatal Push its good proposal for removal. What do you think about Whipflare?A versatile deck it's important (use counters, removals...). But its difficult to conserve all the basic "strategic" cards.

For use third color i think deck needs 3 or more color mana like Glimmervoid or City of Brass combined with Mox Opal and cast 1-2 mana costs.

Im thinking about autodiscard strategy, place the biggest artifact reatures from graveyard with any card like Unburial Rites.

Thank you for comments and ideas.

GlistenerAgent on Affinity Sideboard

I'm not the most experienced Affinity player, but traditional wisdom is that playing Wear / Tear to beat Stony Silence is shitty.

I think your artifact hate of choice should be Ancient Grudge over Hurkyl's. It's also good in matchups where they have a smaller number of artifacts that are high impact, and is in general more versatile.

Affinity sideboards I've played in the past generally have at least one (usually two) Stubborn Denial/Spell Pierce, at least one Thoughtseize, at least one Whipflare (maybe less good now), and at least one (most likely 2) Ghirapur AEther Grid. Aether Grid in particular is awesome, play it. Other cards worth thinking about are Sea Gate Wreckage and some kind of Storm hate card, likely Eidolon of Rhetoric.

Also, I hope you are playing all four Etched Champion in the main. If not, the rest should be in your board.
