It's time to BURN, BABY, BURN!!

I'll fully admit, I underestimated Torbran, Thane of Red Fell the first time I looked at it. It adds just 2 damage for each red source? Meh, not bad in Limited or Standard, but how much of a dent could it make in Commander?

But then, I started adding Torbran's ability to cards. Imagine using Lightning Bolt, just a for 5 damage?? That's an amazing card! Now start adding that ability to bigger cards like Manabarbs and you've got a low to the ground, fast and fiery burn deck!

Starting Hand...

As you could probably guess, you want to start with at least 3 lands, a mana rock, and some smaller burn spells. You DO NOT want any of your big guns early, they're just wasted space when the game starts. Start throwing out lands and extra mana as fast as you can and get Torbran, Thane of Red Fell out and protected as fast as you can!

Notable Cuts...

  • Earthquake & Chain Reaction: Yes, these are great burn cards, but they're limited in potential if Torbran, Thane of Red Fell is out. Sure, you could still deal 5 damage to each creature you don't control while only dealing 3 to Torbran, but it can be risky putting in cards that keep dealing damage to Torbran. Then you may limit yourself on attacking or set your opponent up to deal the last couple points of damage to take Torbran off the board. Sure, there are still some cards like Anger of the Gods, but we have to limit those board wipes and be strategic with them.

  • Purphoros, God of the Forge: I want to keep this deck as budget as I can. But, more importantly, I want to make this deck about slinging burn spells; the creatures are slightly secondary. That's why I rely on creatures like Guttersnipe and Electrostatic Field to boost that!

I would love to hear any feedback or tips you may have for this deck!! If you like it, give it an upvote!! LET'S MAKE THIS THE #1 TORBRAN DECK ON TAPPEDOUT!!!
