Wild Ricochet Discussion

savagemt on Double Tap!

Hey there dude!


You're running Light of Sanction but i only saw one card that damages your own goodies. I'd either cut that or make it relevant by add stuff like Blasphemous Act, Molten Disaster, Starstorm, etc.

Reverberate normally is replaced with Wild Ricochet or Reiterate in my decks, but it is cheaper (mana-wise) so its up to you.

Not sure why my boy Brion Stoutarm isn't in here! He is solid with anything, and downright nasty with Serra Avatar.

Also white is better at spot removal than red. Thunderous Wrath and Lightning Bolt aren't nearly as good as Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares. But they can hit players, so you have to decide which is more important to you (especially with double damage). I also prefer Comet Storm to Red Sun's Zenith, again, i just prefer what one does, i don't think either is strictly better.

Manalith < Commander's Sphere

You're currently 6 cards over the limit. I would cut:

Light of Sanction

Kor Firewalker

Tajic, Blade of the Legion

Into the Maw of Hell (too expensive and slow)

Moonsilver Spear (too expensive)

Losing some lands probably wouldn't hurt either.

Dawn Charm and Rebuff the Wicked are also cards I wouldn't run, although I haven't ever played them. I tend to stay away from counters that are so narrow. Rebuff the wicked does save your creature. However, Gods Willing would be better at that, and has the additional utility of making a creature unblockable or making an enchantment fall off of your creature. (and scry)

However, even with this wall of text of suggestions, it already is a very powerful list that would certainly run fine without any changes. Gisela is a very strong and aggressive commander and the deck matches that!

Tar pit is now sitting at $17. I have both versions of Eye of Ugin. The zen one goes for $10 and mm2 is $4.40.

If you want the mm2 one then I don't really need the Tectonic Edge, but my side is still short $1.50 (with Wild Ricochet).

Wild Ricochet is another but its a bit more mana-costly. Needing to have 7 mana to win seems a bit high.

Wild Ricochet and a few more of the charm spells (like Chaos Charm where you can target creatures using different effects from the same spell) might be fun here.

If you have a particular favorite instant you might try to put it in a Isochron Scepter

Thanks everyone for your insight on this deck. I also want to thank terry and navid for helping making suggestions with this deck with me. I made a few changes based on your recommendation.
After doing my first playtest someone pointed out that Maelstrom Archangel was not a legendary creature. That sucked!!! I put the deck away and played with a pre-con.
After reading your reviews and asking around for help this is what I put together.

LANDS:I got rid of all tapped lands and guildgate which were too slow. Instead I added Frontier Bivouac, Drowned Catacomb, Dragonskull Summit, Rootbound Crag, Temple of Triumph, and Sacred Foundry.

SOCERYI decided to add the following: Day of Judgement?!?!?!!, Treasure Cruise, Armageddon, Ponder, Wrath of God, Waves of Aggression, and Cataclysm

ARTIFACTSI decided to revamp all my artifacts with the following, now that I found out that my creatures are classified as humans. Sword of Body and Mind, Swiftfoot Boots, Sword of Feast and Famine, Spear of Heliod, Butcher's Cleaver, Chromatic Lantern, and Sol Ring

ENCHANTMENTSI added more enchantments to the mix. Dictate of Heliod, Glory of Warfare, Assemble the Legion, and Outpost Siege

CREATURESAddition to the HORSEMANSHIP mechanic I added Mother of Runes, Baneslayer Angel. Mirran Crusader, Aurelia, the Warleader, Solemn Simulacrum, Fauna Shaman, Phyrexian Revoker, Stonehewer Giant,

PLANESWALKERI added Chandra, Pyromaster, and Liliana Vess.

INSTANTSDeflecting Palm, jaces ingenunity]], Murder, Opportunity, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Dismember, Brainstorm, Lightning Bolt, Faith's Reward, Lightning Helix, Boros Charm, Wild Ricochet, Krosan Grip, Wear / Tear, and Spell Crumple

sergiodelrio: The ability to choose new targets for each spell, kinda broken. Wild Ricochet costs 4 to copy/retarget 1 spell.

"oh, the stack is full of burn spells, lucky me"

Mardu's main advantage is his ability to be indestructible when attacking. While you could add enchantments to let him remain indestructible, in these colors, I think you have some better options.

Following with what Aurelia, the Warleader gives you, I'd focus on cards like Aggravated Assault, Fury of the Horde, Relentless Assault, Seize the Day, Waves of Aggression, Savage Beating and World at War to allow you to just keep swinging with him. Cards like Fork, Wild Ricochet, etc. can let you copy these effects for added value.

Aggression, Akroma's Memorial, Archetype of Aggression and the like help you force your damage through on all the extra combat.
