Malignus is another EDH staple. Specially when paired with Curse of Bloodletting.

Erebos, God of the Dead is probably the best help against pesky life gain decks, for it does not prohibit you, as well as provide some card advantage.

Leyline of Punishment, Forsaken Wastes, Havoc Festival, Stigma Lasher, Sulfuric Vortex and possibly Witch Hunt, may help against those life gain decks, that might be a problem for you.

Confusion in the Ranks is nice with norin as whenever he comes back into play you get to steal something and when the next spell is cast, norrin is exiled and returns under your control letting you steal something else.

It's not coin flipping but here are some cards based on randomness you could consider: Scrambleverse, Burning Inquiry, Search for Survivors, Witch Hunt

Last but not least, I think you should include good ol' tibbers, the planewalker that can't decide if he wants to help you or screw you over Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded

Optimator on If Looks Could Kill.. (Diaochan, Artful Beauty)

I am in love with this deck! So unique, much politics. It's an interesting mechanic: the opponent doesn't have to be the one that owned the creature you destroyed. Luckily it's targeted so you can use Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Mask of Avacyn, Whispersilk Cloak, etc. for protection.

With burn as a tactic, would Leyline of Punishment, Stigma Lasher, or Witch Hunt be worthy?

What about a Thousand-Year Elixir and Magewright's Stone? Helps Feldon of the Third Path for that late-game push, too.

Utvara Hellkite might be a bit better in the long run than Mana-Charged Dragon... although the latter has the political aspect. Costs less mana, too.

Perhaps a Dragonmaster Outcast as well? I guess those two would have pretty damn big targets painted on them though.

If budget isn't an issue, I'd take a Thran Dynamo over the Worn Powerstone. I have the latter in almost all my decks and no Dynamos to my name. One day...

Price of Glory + Stranglehold is so dope. Mono-Red represent!

I like the deck allot. I recommend Tempt with Discovery my play group is so greedy I always get 3/4 lands. It's also any land not just basics. I also like Ulvenwald Hydra for this too.

Warstorm Surge it punishes cyclonic rifts most of the time.

I also always recommend Blade of Selves because why not?Another way to cheat some creatures out is Deathrender

One sideboard type card to deal with life gain could be Witch Hunt it's a bit eh but it is in colors you can use not sure of any other in r,w,g, that shuts down life gain.

Best of luck.


carpecanum on I would not like them with a goat.

Witch Hunt is funny with this guy but Pyromancer's Swath and Illusions of Grandeur are absolutely devastating to many decks (i see they are in maybeboard already)
