pie chart Worst. Burn Deck. Ever.




I saw Scorching Spear and wanted to rip it in half. Same story with Kamahl's Sledge . Then I saw Ember Shot and actually ripped it in half. So, instead of ripping cards in half, I decided to make the worst burn deck ever.

If you have any ideas on how to make this deck more horribly pathetic, please comment.

18 turn win seems to be as fast as I have gotten so far. Excellent.

no terrible deck is complete without Rod of Ruin

LOL @ card:Mishra's War Machine Banding FTW!!

April 28, 2011 11:12 a.m.

SinUnNombre says... #4

I agree with the Rod of Ruin comment above. Also, if you wanted to keep the deck mono-red, you could always drop Hornet Sting and the Forest s to run Lava Dart , or Flame Jab and get a similar effect.

LOL. dealaden and SinUnNombre are right: Rod of Ruin and Lava Dart are so necessary. Please beat someone with this deck. Then, go to Staples, buy one of those "Easy" buttons, and push it after they lose.

Shivan Meteor is a must.

Thermal Blast is my personal favorite

mrktown says... #11

Try card:Aladdin's Ring on for size. 8 mana for 4 damage? Totally useful.

April 29, 2011 2:11 a.m.

Let's not forget Rocket Launcher ... nearly the same as Goblin Cannon , but it has "summoning sickness", haha.

April 29, 2011 2:51 p.m.

doinitwrong says... #13

Rocket Launcher is one of my favorite artifacts ever! Use it!

April 29, 2011 3:17 p.m.

schrammletz says... #14

That's true, but you can use Rocket Launcher more than once before you sac it.

April 29, 2011 7:25 p.m.

Wretched says... #15

WTF!? how could you forget Zap ??? most awesome burn card ever. and Goblin Bomb with a Vampire Hexmage just to keep your opponent in suspense. and don't forget Orcish Artillery . gotta make sure your opponent stands a chance against all your heavy burn. ;)

April 29, 2011 10:05 p.m.

kizukesadama says... #16

With Goblin Bomb , the deck has a 1/32 chance of winning as long as an opponent has no life gain. Still, I think that is 1/32 more than this deck would win without it.

April 30, 2011 12:09 a.m.

schrammletz says... #17

I actually had Zap in there, but I took it out to make room for Goblin Cannon . As for Goblin Bomb , I'm afraid that someone will get angry at me in two-headed dragon and proliferate it.

April 30, 2011 7:22 a.m.

lol This deck made my day! Throw in some Lavaball Trap s and Knowledge Pool s just for the lulz, they are both pretty terrible.

April 30, 2011 11:17 a.m.

weterr123 says... #19

Put Warp World in!! you will get not a lot!! Cool!!

April 30, 2011 12:18 p.m.

weterr123 says... #20

Sorry to double post, but just for the lolz:

If you actually owned these cards and made the deck, batter up the cards a bit, maybe write on them in biro pen, definitely DO NOT play in sleeves!

Forget worst burn deck ever, how about just: Worst Deck Ever (Please Volition Reins my cards!!)

Now THAT'S a title!

April 30, 2011 12:22 p.m.

doinitwrong says... #21

I still say Rocket Launcher over Goblin Cannon because you can use both of them multiple times. With Goblin Cannon , you can activate it's ability, then in response you activate it's ability again, etc, so it's the same as Rocket Launcher except Rocket Launcher has "summoning sickness".

April 30, 2011 12:26 p.m.

Jimmer says... #22

Gut Shot ; never pay the red cost. Goblin Artillery for some mean pinging.

April 30, 2011 4:58 p.m.

Delicious says... #23

you should most definetly run a Rakalite

April 30, 2011 8:41 p.m.

Delicious says... #24

on second thought, maybe Goblin Hero would be more effective

April 30, 2011 8:45 p.m.

fairchild says... #25

you should edit this deck and put Stomping Slabs at the General textfield so he's on the spotlight there.

May 1, 2011 9:01 a.m.

Dreamlocke says... #26

It's not actually burn, but it's right up there with the rest of those cards... How about Warp World ?

May 1, 2011 10:41 p.m.

metalmagic says... #27

Aura Barbs seems pretty legit. Backdraft is another insanely bad card that needs to be squeezed in. Chaotic Backlash could be sideboard material against non-blue and non-white decks. Falling Star also seems like something that should make an appearance.

I think Flare should be in there over Zap since you don't even get to see the card immediately with Flare .

May 2, 2011 1:39 a.m.

SocioShadow says... #28

I didn't really read all the comments to see if its already been suggested, but Jaws of Stone would bee great for this deck. (in a bad way)

May 2, 2011 8:51 a.m.

Must.. not vomit... all over keyboard...

Too late.

supernick says... #30

the key to this deck, use all lands that etb tapped and tap for the wrong mana, like Glacial Fortress

Tu eres muy tonto! Tu necesitas Lava Dart

May 3, 2011 8:43 p.m.

Chuggzz420 says... #33

Man, why not 4x Stuffy Doll ?

I really think that'd be an excellent addition

May 3, 2011 10:13 p.m.

infectorus says... #34

Thermal Blast and Lava Dart would be great in place of some of those crazy land cards... I love the deck!

May 4, 2011 12:45 a.m.

schrammletz says... #35

Lava Dart maybe, but Stuffy Doll is really good. It's one my favorite cards in the game, especially with Pariah .

Put in Urza's Rage

May 5, 2011 1:26 a.m.

infectorus says... #38

He wants this deck to suck, not be good haha. Stuff Doll is too good for this deck. Instead, he should put in something like Storm Crow :)

Oh, dont forget Jinxed Idol , in an almost creatureless deck! that'll be so killer! :D

May 5, 2011 8:24 p.m.

Gogogo says... #42

Wow... This is worse than my bad deck, Type 1, top of the line.

May 5, 2011 8:50 p.m.

deathday1 says... #43

card:Rath's Edgewould be a good addition to the land base. especially if you hate your mana base

May 5, 2011 10:21 p.m.

fairchild says... #44

@MorbidAnimosity hahaha yeah! this guy should add 4x Jinxed Idol ... and remove 3x card:Mishra's War Machine

May 5, 2011 11:27 p.m.

infectorus says... #45

@doinitwrong,I love storm crow. In fact, I made a whole deck based around him. Yet, he doesn't fit in this deck at all, thats why I was suggesting him ;). Guys, if this going to be the worst deck ever, he NEEDS Wood Elemental .

May 6, 2011 12:39 a.m.

Bueller says... #46

Needs a playset of Akoum Boulderfoot .

May 6, 2011 2:24 p.m.

capwner says... #47

Singe .

That is all.

Oh, and Barrel Down Sokenzan . That too.

Brute Force in a creatureless deck? :) ... TOTALLY makes sense! XD

May 7, 2011 2:18 p.m.

kartman568 says... #50

I am dissapoint I mean no Reckless Assault s?

June 22, 2011 2:07 p.m.

This deck has pretty much turned into just killing yourself.. XD ...

it'd be funny to see a format where you have to kill yourself to win... :P

June 23, 2011 6:02 p.m.

fairchild says... #52

this deck never ceases to amaze me... +100 for 4x Darksteel Relic

June 26, 2011 9:29 p.m.

Chaosfission says... #53

I agree, Gut Shot needs to be in here.

July 7, 2011 8:05 p.m.

Exclaminator says... #54

Gut Shot seems just awsome in here, yeah ill pay 2 life to shoot one damage on you!

July 7, 2011 8:34 p.m.

weterr123 says... #55

Hell, if it's the worst burn deck ever, why try to kill opponents?! - I'll pay 2 life to shoot 1 damage to myself!!


July 7, 2011 8:44 p.m.

bomberman says... #56

Lets show a little love to arguably the best burn spell ever printed.... Needle Drop is a must have in any legacy burn deck such as this one.

September 27, 2011 5:39 p.m.

doinitwrong says... #57

Oh, hey, how come no one suggested Goblin Game ? Or is that too good?

September 27, 2011 9:48 p.m.

schrammletz says... #58

cuz i might win. Needle Drop lets you draw

torridus says... #60

I think you need at least one Mountain in order to use your Balduvian Trading Post s and Dormant Volcano s even a little bit.

As awesome as Darksteel Relic is in this deck, it doesn't burn anyone! It should be replaced with something that can do damage, as this is slowly becoming a colorless artifact deck with only a couple of burn spells.

theonyc says... #61

i played this with my best deck and lost, +1 its super strong

August 17, 2012 11:09 p.m.

atreyujames says... #62

Mindblaze , then say that they have 5 Chimney Imp

August 27, 2012 9:08 a.m.

Askani28 says... #63

I'd replace card:Mishra's War Machine with the extremely powerful Disaster Radius , just to tease. ;) But dude, seriously (!!!), your deck absolutely needs Lava Dart . Without mountains in the deck it's way worst than Hornet Sting , which is actually "relatively good" for a green card since green has no direct damage... And who would want a "relatively good" card in the Worst. Burn Deck. Ever.? Hornet Sting is like Psionic Blast , which would be bad for red but is almost "good" in blue. Such quality is unacceptable ;)

Be careful friend, your deck could become too powerful to be contained. Should lower its power level a bit, to be safe.

+1 Lolll

Check out my game: QUEST MAGIC: The Mtg RPG!

August 30, 2012 9:44 p.m.

Cadois says... #64

I actually managed to cause 20 damage with this deck, one turn before it would lose by deck over. Just took me 54 turns.

Maybe sideboard Aftershock against enchantments/artifacts?

What about some "new" cards? Lightning Diadem

May 28, 2014 7:15 p.m.

Tyrannosary says... #69

if you want your deck to look horribly pathetic this is what the deck list should look like 60x Mountain

May 29, 2014 12:19 a.m.

Mogue says... #70

I've noticed there's a distinct lack of scry text, Knowledge and Power could really put the boot in.

June 18, 2014 6:16 a.m.

Mogue says... #71

Have to agree with Askani28 I'm afraid; "your deck absolutely needs Lava Dart . Without mountains in the deck it's way worse than Hornet Sting , which is actually "relatively good" for a green card since green has no direct damage... And who would want a "relatively good" card in the Worst. Burn Deck. Ever.? Hornet Sting is like Psionic Blast , which would be bad for red but is almost "good" in blue. Such quality is unacceptable"

also +1, the deck concept is inspirational.

I'm quite a bit late, however I feel as though Acceptable Losses deserves a mention. Everyone seems to have forgotten about that one; probably for good reason. . .

August 4, 2016 5:30 p.m.

Conflagrate would work wonders for this deck!
