Wild Ricochet Discussion

gonki on Shoot that Adamaro through my deck

5 days ago

Draw_Wurm I really like what you you mentioned. I'm also not a big fan of infect but using Chandra's Ignition with it is great and that card is severely underappreciated. On the other hand I'm a big fan of large creatures beating faces (shameless plug for my deck From 0 to Dragons) but I agree that straight beaters are rarely useful even when beat down is the entire purpose of your deck.

By the way Wild Ricochet among those cards is nice because you get to redirect the original spell as well as the copy. This can save you from any number of removal spells or turn someone's Cyclonic Rift or Insurrection right back into their face. It's sort of a difficult card to run when you aren't making a lot of red mana but I'm a fan of it since I don't think anything else combines those two effects.

Draw_Wurm on Shoot that Adamaro through my deck

Thanks gonki appreciate it. It started from trying to brew EDH decks with underplayed commanders, particularly mono coloured for the interesting constraints. I've got a mono Horobi brew which I've played for the last few months which I'm going to dismantle for parts and trades to build the Adamaro deck:

House of Cards

Commander / EDH Draw_Wurm


In terms of the Adamaro deck, the draw artifacts suite works well, and Winter Orb and Torpor Orb, War's Toll and Uphill Battle and Urabrask the Hidden slow down our opponents ability to benefit. I don't normally like infect in EDH, but Blightsteel Colossus + Chandra's Ignition is a nice wincon, and the colossus shuffles stuff back in if it hits the graveyard which works well with the wheel effects. Hellkite Tyrant is an additional wincon via acquiring artifacts, and Adamaro all Voltron-ed up is the 3rd.

I'm not wholly sold on the Reiterate\Reverberate\Wild Ricochet effects, but not really tested them.

Chandra Ablaze is a way to deal damage/remove and another way to get Anger into the graveyard on top of Anvil of Bogardan (or it dying in play)

Metalwork Colossus has synergy, but it's just a beater and it feels like we need ETB effects or rattlesnakes. Hence no Taurean Mauler or War Elemental. I thought about a Darksteel Colossus or one of the Ulamogs as another threat that also shuffles the graveyard back in.

Batterskull I thought about running for more lifelink.

Also wondered about running more low value chump blockers like Soldevi Sentry, Runed Servitor etc.

Ohhhhhhhh Lantern Control would be fun(fun for you that is). Maybe go izzet and start Swerveing everything and dropping some Wild Ricochets

A Turbo Mill is still my fav though just keep some Force Spikes in there to deal with Duress

TzickyT on Mono Red Mill EDH

I understand the deck what u want to do with it and all but i don't understand how u going to mill your opponents. my question is are u focused on doing damage or focused on milling your opponent. if u are going for the milling part i would suggest playing some other cards

poorly i can't realy help u adding cards for your artifact rotation if u are intrested to go for some sort of artifact plays. but hope u wil find something usefull between these cards

As Daedalus19876 has said direct damage can be a challenge, especially if you are set on going mono red and not say, Rakdos () or maybe even Grixis (). If you are open to more colours a wonderful group slug (damage if everyone) commander for rakdos is Mogis, God of Slaughter and for Grixis Nekusar, the Mindrazer. Nekusar has some near broken cards synergies by the way, such as Jace's Archivist.

Now that I made sure you know your deck options, let's focus on the strategy for this mono red group slug.

Now with direct damage I honestly think you just have to play politics. What I mean is since everyone thinks mono red burn can't be done, that's how you win.

Here's what I think a good game plan is: Set up cards that help everyone such as Mana Flare, Mana Cache, Temple Bell (notice these are all early plays) so people like you. Even a Tempt with Vengeance will make friends. Then you got to start playing cards not to remove anyone from the game, but rather prevent someone from dominating. Pyroclasm to stop elf ball, Ash Zealot to slow down reanimator, Omen Machine to slow down control, all of these picks depend on your meta, so choose wisely. A Rite of the Raging Storm widdles down your opponent's life totals and more often than not, tables won't hate you for taking it, your not the criminal, you're the gun store.

Some cards that can really save you and/or the table are Bearer of the Heavens and Wild Ricochet, and Nevinyrral's Disk. Good luck with this deck!

Basically it would look like this:

-Spell goes on the stack.

-Opponent plays counterspell, say Cancel.

-You respond with Ricochet Trap. Redirect the Cancel to the Ricochet Trap.

-Cancel resolves, countering your Ricochet Trap. Original spell resolves.

You can do this with any spell that redirects a spell, e.g. Misdirection, Redirect, Wild Ricochet, etc.
