Wild Ricochet Discussion

SpaghettiToastBook on Ashling the burn deck

Chain Reaction is a really good board wipe: it's inexpensive, has a low CMC, and almost always kills everything.Staff of Nin is recurring card draw and it's cheap. Mind's Eye is more expensive but probably better at drawing cards. Magus of the Wheel and Dragon Mage are more wheel effects you could try. You might also want to try Mana Flare, Treasonous Ogre, or Caged Sun for even more mana to sink into Ashling.

You might want to try damage doublers: Furnace of Rath, Insult / Injury, Quest for Pure Flame, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Curse of Bloodletting, Gratuitous Violence, or Overblaze. All of these are pretty inexpensive.

Copying spells is a neat way to increase the value of your burns. You could try any of these: Reverberate, Wild Ricochet, Fork, Chandra, the Firebrand, Dual Casting, Dualcaster Mage, Increasing Vengeance, Howl of the Horde. You can also use most of these to copy pesky counterspells or copy draw or ramp spells. Price of Glory is great since you're mostly playing at sorcery speed. Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Ricochet Trap, and Burnout are good for hating on blue players. Overmaster, Reroute, or Shunt might be okay too.

I love a good mono-red BEATS deck! How does Urza's Rage sound? Chandra, Pyromaster is a cheap planeswalker than can copy a devastating damage spell. Dual Casting for more copying. If you want to have fun and gamble, Fiery Gambit can attract a crowd to your table to watch (Imagine copying it!). Braid of Fire Ain't cheap, but it'll supply you with mana. Wild Ricochet is almost an auto-include for me (saved me multiple times). run Brand if card stealing is heavy in your meta.

Card Draw: Unfortunately, Red mana doesn't have great access to card draw without discard effects; Avaricious Dragon, Browbeat can net a few cards, Burning Inquiry, Goblin Lore, Control of the Court, Mindmoil does a dope job of letting you dig through your library. ALOT of wheel effects.

BUT Geth's Grimoire Makes amazing use of these wheel effects!!

You might be interested in Otherworld Atlas. Yes it gives everybody cards, but hardly anyone can complain or target the guy giving everyone cards. Arcane Spyglass makes use of unneeded mana. Farsight Mask, Font of Mythos, Illuminated Folio, Staff of Nin, Well of Knowledge,

Sorry for the gross wall of text, hope this helps!!

Dreykon on Will I get 6 turns?

If it helps the real world scenario is my opponent cast Time Stretch. I casted Wild Ricochet and Fork. ALso it was a commander game. Cheers ;-)

THank you both Epochalyptik and Neotrup. And yes I was assuming I had to change the target inorder to use Wild Ricochet missed the "may" part. My bad lol

Neotrup on Will I get 6 turns?

Yes, you will both get 6 turns and you are messing up somehow.

First you cast Time Stretch with some target, then before your opponent has a chance to respond, you cast Wild Ricochet targeting Time Stretch. Then, once again before letting your opponent respond, you cast Fork targeting Wild Ricochet. The way you described it, you would have let Wild Ricochet resolve, and it would not longer be a valid target for Fork.

The stack is now:

  1. Time Stretch
  2. Wild Ricochet
  3. Fork

Assuming your opponent has no responses, Fork will resolve, creating a copy of Wild Ricochet, which you will presumably target at Time Stretch.

The stack is now:

  1. Time Stretch
  2. Wild Ricochet
  3. Wild Ricochet

Now (assuming no responses) Wild Ricochet resolves, allowing you to change the target of Time Stretch to whomever, and creating a copy that you'll want to target at yourself.

The stack is now:

  1. Time Stretch
  2. Wild Ricochet
  3. Time Stretch

Now (assuming no responses) Time Stretch resolves targeting yourself, giving yourself two extra turn. Again (assuming no responses) Wild Ricochet resolves, changing the target of Time Stretch to yourself, and creating a copy targeting yourself.

The stack is now:

  1. Time Stretch
  2. Time Stretch

Now, if there are no responses, both copies will resolve, one at a time, each giving you two extra turns.

Having written this, I think I've come up with why you're asking this, I think you're assuming Wild Ricochet has to change the target of the original, it in fact does not, and you can in each step of this target the Time Stretches at yourself, never needing to target your opponent.

If you allow Wild Ricochet to resolve, it won't be on the stack for Fork to target.

Also, because these effects give you the option to choose new targets ("you may"), it's a better idea to target yourself with Time Stretch from the outset and never change the targets. Less can go wrong that way. There's also no reason for Fork to target Wild Ricochet instead of Time Stretch itself.

But anyway, if you cast Time Stretch and copy it with Wild Ricochet and Fork, you'll take 6 extra turns because you're resolving three copies of Time Stretch.

I cast Time Stretch targeting my opponent. I then cast Wild Ricochet changing the target of Time Stretch to my self and I then target my opponent with the copy of Time Stretch. Then I cast Fork targeting Wild Ricochet. With my second copy of Wild Ricochet I target the copy of Time Stretch redirecting it to my self and target myself with the second copy of Time Stretch.

Does this grant me 6 turns? Or am I messing up the stack some how?

Grind on Anti Azami lady of scrolls

1 week ago

if they actually rely on having azami on the board as a draw engine, that is easy to deal with in red; Pyrohemia, Starstorm, Magmaquake, Sulfurous Blast.
if you really want to go anti- blue there is Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast.
also fun is to Wild Ricochet or Reverberate their extra turn spells. or their control spells or spelltwine or whatever they are doing. just fun to mess them up.
