Make Every Villain Feel The Wrath of Hell Flame

enter image description here

enter image description here

This is about as competitive a build as I could make, with the exception of local playgroup restrictions (No Sol Ring, Ancient Tomb, Mana Crypt).

The idea is to burn a table with normally unplayable burn cards like Flame Rift and make 12 mana from the damage/life lost. From there we've an arsenal of outlets: further burn spells, large creatures, that we can use to our advantage. Knollspine Dragon is especially synergistic.

On top of that, we've a few spells that will really hamper other strategies; Blood Moon is quite punishing, and Defense Grid taxes a lot of control/counter magic, and Stranglehold is just crippling.

Since this has been shifted to a Boku No Hero Academia theme with Endeavor at the helm, I saw it fitting to add some more burn spells that burn into exile should a creature die, or anything that prevents regeneration.

enter image description here

Burn from Within, Flamebreak, Annihilating Fire, and Kumano, Master Yamabushi are a few examples.

And of course, Flame Javelin

enter image description here

Koth of the Hammer looks a lot like Bakugo, now that I think about it.





Thanks to everyone here who gets a kick out of these thematic decks of mine.

My god, someone stop this man from making sweet anime theme decks!

Another +1 Ultra Upvote for you, go forth and prove Stain right with this deck!

Umm I don't know who your commander even is...

Jimmy_Chinchila hmm... it's both the featured card up top and is mentioned in the second accordion block. I gave it a nickname so it makes sense you didn't catch it the first time!

October 5, 2017 6:10 p.m.

Oh ok I checked the accordions and didn't see the card name Neheb, the Eternal. Also if you only single click the featured card it just blows up the image. I see now though how to find it

October 5, 2017 7:52 p.m.

n0bunga says... #5

Yeah you can nickname a card by putting | after the card name inside the [[]]

So Neheb, the Eternal becomes Endeavor if you click/hover your curser over it.

And apologies, what I meant was, when creating a deck you're asked for a featured card. This could be any card that isn't your general, which is around the top right of your list when viewed on desktop, and towards the middle of the list on mobile. The featured card appears on the top right, which should be Neheb's image! Hope that clears it up.

so if I get it right, this deck has a sort of goblin sub theme?

October 6, 2017 5:24 a.m.

n0bunga says... #7


That would be incorrect. It had Goblin Recruiter and has Goblin Matron, but their purpose is to fetch for Lightning Crafter to use his bolt ability. Golbin Welder is primarily here to recur any artifacts that may end in the grave, abusing something like Hedron Archive to draw.

Recruiter was eventually taken out because there's no sense in arranging 4 Goblins as your topdecks when you wouldn't even find 4 to begin with.

But nah mate I wouldn't exactly consider 3 Creatures as a sub theme. One is pure utility and the other tutors for what you need at any given time.

Big fan of the "op underdog" commander deck ya got going there. Chaining the damage into mana into damage is ingenious and effective, definitely a deck to watch out for. m'+1

NV_1980 says... #13

How about adding some double damage with cards like Furnace of Rath or Fire Servant?

October 12, 2017 2:07 a.m.

n0bunga says... #14

NV_1980 Hey! I actually did have Dictate of the Twin Gods over Furnace of Rath - mainly due to flash. But indiscriminate double damage particularly harms me more in my meta vs several infect builds lol.

Fire Servant interests me though!!

Ninja_T0-_-0 says... #15

You have the goggles but do you have the gauntlets to match? ;) Pyromancer's Gauntlet

October 12, 2017 8:28 a.m.

Ninja_T0-_-0 says... #16

And maybe Guttersnipe?

October 12, 2017 8:33 a.m.

Ninja_T0-_-0 says... #17

sorry just seen that in the maybeboard... my bad haha awesome deck though. I really need Aggravated Assault

October 12, 2017 8:35 a.m.

n0bunga says... #18

Haha the gauntlets seem cool. And word on the street is Rivals of Ixalan is fixing to reprint Aggravated Assault!

October 12, 2017 9:04 a.m.

Ninja_T0-_-0 says... #19

Thats odd considering it was reprinted very recently as an Invocation... worth looking out for I guess.

October 13, 2017 3:25 a.m.

n0bunga says... #20

Well yeah that's the point :P invocs didn't exactly lower the price of those cards. A standard legal reprint might.

In all fairness its not a great card; it's just very good here and other specific niche edh decks, so the edh community essentially drove up the price when there's really no reason for it to be a $30 card. It's not exactly a card played in any older format.

October 13, 2017 7:28 a.m.

Quality BnHA reference, upvoted. Jeskai colored All Might deck when?

October 13, 2017 9:32 a.m.

n0bunga says... #22

Hmmm I'd have to check at a formidable general. All For One currently resides with Deku/Rafiq:

Rafiq all for one!!

Commander / EDH* joeri30


Annnnnd THE One Punch Jeskai man I have as Saitama:

Saitama's SERIOUS Punch (Shu Yun EDH)

Commander / EDH n0bunga


I'd do Ruhan of the Fomori if I were looking at a 1v1 list. Or a super power-down voltron Narset I guess...

Hey, this looks like a great deck! I really like Neheb, the Eternal as a commander. +1!

The combo-potential between Neheb, the Eternal and cards like Fury of the Horde is just over 9000!!! The mana you generate with him stacks up with every extra combat step. So why don't you also play Relentless Assault and Seize the Day? World at War does only work in the first postcombat mainphase but would still be nice. Savage Beating can only be cast in the combat phase, so you cannot use the mana from Neheb, the Eternal to cast it. Maybe it should leave therefore.

Another idea would be to include cards that give your commander flying, so that he won't get killed by cards like Molten Disaster anymore. You could include Fleetfeather Sandals or Akroma's Memorial. This way you could also play Earthquake in your deck. If you manage to give him horsemanship, you could also include Rolling Earthquake ;).

Finally, you could also include Breath of Darigaaz and maybe Warmonger.

Bxbx says... #24

I also think that Shattering Spree is better than By Force, because the former is more difficult to counter.

And Radiate is a funny card that might have some applications in this deck.

October 15, 2017 7:55 a.m.

n0bunga says... #25

Hey! So glad you like it! The real "infinite combo" is with Aggravated Assault since it's can always produce extra combat steps woth Neheb and at least one open source or perhaps another creature. Noth Relentless Assault and Seize the Day were in up until recently. Seize only affects one which is fine but I'd rather all Creatures. Savage beating may only be in Combat but the double strike for all Creatures is too much to pass up.

Ultimately I felt the best extra combat step by far was the enchantment. Fury is "free" and Savage can vastly increase my postcombat mana. Because of this, the other two were taken out in favour of other cards, like Ixalan's new artifact that flips into a fork on a stick.

For the flying bit, these are all sweet and Earthquake, or Rolling Earthquake are quote potent. The problem is my meta both doesn't have anyone that either has red or needs those wraths, because the ones that don't are Numot and Prossh. I'd personally focus on nondiscriminate burn spells.

True, Shattering Spree is better. That's just an unfortunate result of my LGS not having them since it and Shatterstorm are such common/popular sideboard slots vs Affinity/Lantern Control.

October 15, 2017 7:56 a.m.

Bxbx says... #26

Ah, I see, Aggravated Assault is truly the real deal in this deck!

Another card that comes to my mind is Price of Progress as long as you're not in a meta full of monocolored decks.

There's one more thing I would like to notice. If you're playing Neheb, the Eternal on turn 5, you will sometimes get no immediate value out of him, because you can't play a burn spell in the same turn and you sometimes won't have any other creatures in play that turn, because you're only playing 15. Maybe you could add some strong creatures with evasion that cost 4 mana like Territorial Hellkite or Thunderbreak Regent, which you could cast on turn 4 and then attack with them after you played Neheb on turn 5.

October 15, 2017 8:36 a.m.

n0bunga says... #27

I can understand the want for earlier creatures! That's kind of why I have Turns 1-4 casted creatures. Things like Goblin Matron tutoring Lighting Crafter, Combat Celebrant and Wildfire Eternal.

I've done my best (while Adhering to my meta's small banlist of no Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, or Ancient Tomb) to ensure I can bring out Neheb earier than T5.

Price of Progress is definitely on my radar!

October 15, 2017 9:32 a.m.

thijmnesoy says... #28

I don't know if you like it but Bloodfire Colossus could be a mana sink that could give you even more mana with Neheb on the battlefield. Pyrohemia can get you easily mana and even more mana with Repercussion. And Sunbird's Invocation is just a fun card to play. it gives your spells a sort of cascade. I hope you find my suggestions useful! :D

October 15, 2017 3:29 p.m.

n0bunga says... #29

thijmnesoy hmm the Colossus does seem like a good sink and/or a decent way to generate a lot of mana.

Pyrohenia is definitely going to come in at some point, I'm just figuring out what to take out.

October 15, 2017 3:59 p.m.

Hipparchos says... #30

n0bunga: Absolutely hilarious! :) But what would you cut for Sol Ring, Ancient Tomb and Mana Crypt? My playgroup has no restrictions.

November 15, 2017 11:47 a.m.

n0bunga says... #31

Definitely Fire Diamond, Great Furnace and Mirage Mirror. CITP tap artifacts are super slow, and I was just finding anything at that point, so that will be a strict upgrade. Artifact Lands are fine, but have an extra vulnerability to artifact hate, so that's a pretty easy sub.

Mirage Mirror is just a fun card, but it's nothing super special, and if you're opting for Mana Acceleration at this point, then it's probably first to go.

I'd also take out Hedron Archive and Basalt Monolith for Mox Opal and Mana Vault if you wanted those as well.

November 15, 2017 12:01 p.m.

Hipparchos says... #32

Thanks for your quick response and the suggestions. Keep it up! :)

Mox Opal is already in your deck, or do i miss something?

November 15, 2017 5:20 p.m.

Hipparchos says... #33

I put in Chrome Mox instead.

November 15, 2017 5:32 p.m.

Hipparchos says... #34

Nvm, already there :-P

November 15, 2017 5:36 p.m.

Shattering Spree Smash to Smithereens seem like they go good in this deck also Thermo-Alchemist works well in my list

November 15, 2017 8:49 p.m.

Hipparchos says... #36

I put in Lotus Petal instead of Basalt Monolith.

November 16, 2017 7 a.m.

n0bunga says... #37

Hipparchos Haha I only mentioned the Moxes because I still view them as budgetless upgrades. Mana Vault is also banned in my meta. And Lotus Petal seems like a fine choice especially with Goblin Welder.
