Wild Slash Discussion

Yeah... I know that feeling of selling cards I shouldn't have.

Since you are crazy enough to wanna hear my suggestions, then here I come. I have to say one thing before though. A sideboard is somewhere you can put cards to switch between matches to fix your deck's weak point. So, even if have one Garruk, absolutely mainboard him. That would make the deck more consistent. Having him in the sideboard doesn't help.

Mutiny is another card that just isn't good. It's too unreliable as it needs your opponent to have at the very least two creatures and one of them needs to be strong enough to kill the other, in which case you'll kill the weaker but will still need to deal with a strong creature. Kozilek's Return isn't budget friendly. However, it's a good boardwipe that doubles if you cast a big Eldrazi, clearing the way for an attack. If you strictly want a single target removal you could use Lightning Bolt , Wild Slash , Abrade or, if want to have as few colors as possible, Reality Shift .

Same goes for Spark Harvest . Too unreliabe and sacrificing the resources you'll need to accomplish your goal doesn't seem good. You can use Dismember instead as really few creatures can survive -5/-5 and you wouldn't need a black source anymore.

Mist Intruder is just generic, and ingest isn't a really good mechanic. Run Eldrazi Skyspawner instead. It's one mana more expensive but also ramps you for one mana.

Hamletback Goliath is cute altough being nothing else. It's not bad per say, but offers nothing more than just a big body. No protection, no evasion, not even trample. Even if it becomes a 40/40 it can be blocked by a 1/1. Just as a comparison, Hamletback Goliath can be destroyed, bounced or exiled, but Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger can't be destroyed and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn has protection from an absurd amount of things while simultaneously having evasion. You're investing a lot of mana in those Eldrazi and they "pay you back" by impacting the board as soon as they come in and are rather resilient. Rather than the Goliath, you could use Emrakul's Hatcher , Beanstalk Giant , Oblivion Sower or even Drowner of Hope . Here's a more organized way to explain:

  1. Emrakul's Hatcher - Not nearly as big and has no potential to grow, but helps you "ramp". Also is a red card, so makes you have to properly adjust your manabase accordingly.

  2. Beanstalk Giant - Not as big, but can grow really big if go all in the ramp plan as it also helps you ramp by being a ramp spell.

  3. Oblivion Sower - Can be searched with From Beyond and disrupts the opponent while also stealing their lands and ramping you.

  4. Drowner of Hope - Sort of a Control(?) option. It can sacrifice you scion tokens to tap your oppoent's most troublesome creature and it's also searchable by From Beyond .

I've been writing a lot. Feel free to agree or disagree with what I said. Just because I think something would be better it doesn't it will be better or that you should like it, after all, the deck is yours.

Also, if you could change the format to Casual it would help a lot. When writing these comment, TappedOut can directly show you cards I want to suggest. However, since the deck is labeled as Unknown format, anything I try to recommend ends up being recognized as illegal.

Cut Eerie Interlude . Go to two colors, red and green. Replace with Reckless Rage . Reckless Rage triggers enrage for most of your creatures.
If you have a Marauding Raptor out, it will kill Otepec Huntmaster . Replace with Wild Slash or other low cost removal. This will help remove creatures and planeswalkers and gets better after you play the big creatures.
Remove Domri, Anarch of Bolas and replace with 2x Shifting Ceratops and 2x Flame Sweep .

Think about how to deal with the following for sideboard cards:
1. Planeswalkers
2. Gain life against burn
3. How to exile anything

Abrade in the side that can deal with both creatures and artifacts.
Thrashing Brontodon is good in the side.
Run 2x Rampaging Ferocidon in the side. Good against life gain weenie decks.

Darksteel Citadel is a good call. I don 't care for Wild Slash , i won't have many big creatures. Spite of Mogis fits better i think. Bomat Courier seems nice at first, but i'm not expecting to be very agro and he's going to lose his ability to rebuild my hand come turn 3 at the latest. and i'm not sure what i'd take out to add him. the Ghostfire Blade is tempting to protect the Kaboomist from himself, but that would be its only purpose.

I'd gone Izzet specifically so i could get Trail of Evidence and make Saheeli easier to cast. but i really like that devil... probably going to copy this deck and build it around that change and compare.

Ghostfire Blade , Darksteel Citadel , Bomat Courier are all good artifacts. The Citadel is an easy additional artifact and the courier is a pseudo card draw engine.

If you are looking to get a large amount of instant/sorcery triggers, low cost removal like Wild Slash would be a good idea.

If you are willing to look at Rakdos Mayhem Devil could be a fun alternate win con by saccing your massive number of clues.

Another place to look would be Throne of Eldrane (newest set) for red cards that produce food. I'm not familiar with the set, so I don't have any immediate help.

I really like this idea. I've been so focused on having a deck that holds its own first that my experimentation has taken a back seat.

Wild Slash is a strict upgrade over Shock , and worth considering with all the prowess that may turn it on.

Argy on Playing a card in response ...

If someone casts Collective Brutality and chooses to have me discard Wild Slash , can I cast it in response, thereby giving them no legal target for that part of the spell?

Hiya. Sorry for the late response. Glorybringer isn't really a huge advantage over Skyship Stalker other than the targeting portion of him, though the built-in haste can be nice. Up to you in the end, kind of a judgement call based on your play style.

Yeah I've played enough games online where people will kill your Generator Servant , which is unfortunate, but pretty much unavoidable. I believe I'm running 4 Satyr Hedonist and Generator Servant in my deck, which is fun because sometimes my opponent will kill my creature, so I cast the same one next turn lol.

For Dragon Tempest , I'd recommend dropping an Everflowing Chalice , then either dropping a Wild Slash or the second Everflowing Chalice to fit in 2 more Dragon Tempest , so you're running 4. If this were my deck, I'd drop both Wild Slash for 2 more Lightning Bolt . My deck doesn't run any instants or sorceries, so some creative liberty should/can be taken there.

One card you should have is Monastery Swiftspear . It's one of the premier burn cards in every format in which it's legal. I'd cut Viashino Pyromancer to fit them in, but pretty much anything else in the deck is worth cutting for them. Just try to get four copies.

If you made your deck more spell-heavy, you could turn it into a Mono R Prowess-type of deck that uses Monastery Swiftspear , Soul-Scar Mage , Runaway Steam-Kin , and Bedlam Reveler as main win conditions. That deck generally wins with fast creature damage rather than burn, but I still recommend looking up some lists for reference.

Also, Wild Slash is better than Shock.
