BioProfDude Sure.

I played MtG starting with Beta/Unlimited (right as it was finishing and moving to Revised) and stopped about the time 4th Edition came out. I started playing again about a year ago. The game has certainly changed! I prefer to play Standard format. It's a fun game and it is overly addictive...

Sure thing!

First, you want to save whatever image you want. Then go to Imgur or a similar image hosting site and upload your image. It will give you a link, but in the top left corner(on mobile anyways) there is a drop down box that says link, you need to change that to direct link. Then just copy and paste into the code below. Enjoy!

Maybe add bloodrage brawler so that you have a way to discard if you need to get Hazoret the Fervent activated for combat. If you get stuck holding a couple of Glorious Ends, you'll not be able to get the god to combat. I know that Hazoret can help you discard, but why not pay 1 less mana and get a 3/4 out of the deal?

Interesting deck! I like the idea! +1 from me.

Keep in mind that I don't play modern, so there's that. Nevertheless, I might suggest Nature's Way or (secondarily) Rabid Bite. I know they're 2 mana sorcery speed, but Nature's Way also gives the targeted creature vigilance and trample. Moreover, both protect your creatures from dying (they don't fight the other creature, only deal it damage-- and you can target one of your own tapped creatures!)). That might be worth the tradeoff to a sorcery in modern?

Your ramp is heavy on 3 mana spells. Maybe a couple more on the 1 and 2 drop part of the curve? Maybe Gnarlwood Dryad and/or Narnam Renegade? You may not get delirium or revolt, but you still get a 1/1 for , and that's still pretty good.

I don't see many opportunities to get delirium for the Deathcap Cultivator. It's a good mana dork, but not so great in a fight in a deck (without delirium) built around deathtouch. Theoretically, you won't see your artifacts, lands, or enchantments in the graveyard, so that limits you to instants, sorceries, and creatures going into the graveyard. As a result, delirium may be hard to get to trigger the Deathcap Cultivator deathtouch. Then again, maybe that's less of a concern for you and you prefer the mana ability. That's cool if you do. Everyone has their preferences! :-)

In addition to the amazing Vampire Nighthawk (I really love that card!), maybe also it's cousin, Vampire Groundhawk (a.k.a. Gifted Aetherborn). At 2 mana, that card is amazing.

Cool deck! +1 from me!

PickleNutz, please do update as I would like to know how other versions of the deck perform. Thanks for the upvote!

Oh yeah, I didn't even think of the warrior vs soldier part! I keyed in on the human part. Good call! Ya, in the near future I'll build a (Standard) human deck. This will definitely be a part. Too good of a card (provided it's a human focus only). Modern is a bit of a mystery to me-- too many cards... I've only been back in the game for a little over a year. The number of modern cards and the different iterations (like soldier vs warrior) aren't always obvious to me.

Maybe Secure the Wastes, then? :-)

Cool deck! Good luck!

Dave_Icaria, I played the card in standard (which is the format I play, so modern is not my thing), and I played it in a human deck where I used Thalia's Lieutenant and it worked very well to play a human every turn, and it's not like it's the only creature I ever played, particularly in my aggro (note-- not burn) deck of 30 creatures. So yes, I do think it's good value in those circumstances, and the deck did very, very well in standard.

Clearly I'm an idiot in modern. Thanks for pointing it out. I'll shut up and stick with my standard format where I have more knowledge. Sorry to all for bothering here on a modern deck.

April 22, 2017 4:47 p.m.

Mightyhulk1, madness is like revolt or delirium-- to be truly effective, the deck needs to have a significant component built around it. I avoid madness and discard as much as possible in this deck, though bloodrage brawler is certainly an exception for a 3/4 for only ! My hand routinely empties by the end of turn 4, so accelerating that isn't in my best interest. (I don't add new cards to the deck until the set is officially released; it's a strange personal preference thing)

Hazoret's Monument is too slow at 3 mana. Once Amonkhet is officially released, Aethersphere Harvester and Lupine Prototype will be removed for other, better options.

Thanks for the suggestions, though!

April 21, 2017 12:40 p.m.

I have an aggro deck (so different strategy) in mono-red that might give you some ideas. Mono-red weenie speed deck (budget) Take a look and see if anything might work for you.

Good luck!

April 21, 2017 11:30 a.m.

Another for the sideboard, by the way, might be Renegade Tactics, only because it allows you to card draw without discarding. I know you want the madness mechanic, though, for a couple of your cards.

April 21, 2017 11:28 a.m.

Yep, worked. It's just in the card list. Maybe it does have something to do with being on mobile. :-D

April 21, 2017 11:24 a.m.

Ah, okay, so just add the card by name (not by set or anything), then add (manually) the (AKH) in the card list.

April 21, 2017 11:21 a.m.

Hmm, I did this for my deck (same card) and it worked fine. Card list on the right, make it look exactly as it does in my previous post, above. (When you add cards from searching (on the left), they are added to the card list on the right in a large box-- that's the card list to which I refer)

April 21, 2017 11:20 a.m.

No, it will look like this in your card list:

3x Blazing Volley (AKH)

April 21, 2017 11:17 a.m.

Oh, that's weird, your blazing volley trick didn't work. Instead of typing it in on the left where you search for the card, make sure the (AKH) is in the card list on the right. See Blazing Volley in the card list? go there, hit the space bar once to add a space immediately following it, then type in the (AKH).

April 21, 2017 11:14 a.m.

Well, the good thing about Burn from Within is that it only requires a couple of mana to do even 1 pt of damage. I think in the sideboard might be the best place, just in case. If you have 3 or 4 mana out, that might be enough to finish off an opponent as they start getting bigger creatures and threats on the board.

Fall of the Titans can also be useful for the sideboard. Again, just in case it is needed.

Yes, Bomat Courier is a lot of fun. :-)

April 21, 2017 11:13 a.m.

By the way, go into the Edit for your deck and type (AKH) after blazing volley to get it to link to the card so that it becomes Blazing Volley.

April 21, 2017 10:59 a.m.

I like the initial thought. In the sideboard, I think you need more burn that can directly target the opponent. What happens if they don't run may creatures? Cards like Lightning Axe or Blazing Volley won't do you a lot of good. Burn from Within might be good.

For creatures, maybe Kari Zev, Skyship Raider and/or Bomat Courier might be good.

Cool looking deck, though-- I look forward to its evolution! +1 from me!

April 21, 2017 10:58 a.m.

Have you seen the new Amonkhet card, Glory-Bound Initiate? That card will be pretty amazing, I think...

April 21, 2017 10:42 a.m.

I do indeed have a red source-- Foreboding Ruins! The haste has been pretty good, and occasionally I do sacrifice to get the cards exiled. It was not in an early version of the deck and I added it at the suggestion of others and it has worked very, very well!

Ya, Lupine Prototype is the card that's leaving once Amonkhet is out. It's a great card for a speed deck, but there are just better cards to replace it in the new set.

Shamble Back may be a sorcery, but it is wickedly good, particularly against decks with recursion (zombies, Scrapheap Scrounger). WAY too much value for !

Fatal Push is only good if I want to lose a creature first-- and I don't.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Dave_Icaria, I'm not sure what you mean? Lightning Berserker can be cast as a regular creature for only , OR it can be cast for dash for only . Either way, that's only 1 mana. The beauty of casting for the dash mechanic is that it gets haste and you return it safely to your hand at the end of turn to do it again on your next turn, and again, and again, and again. It's exceptionally annoying to opponents.

It's even better when coupled with Thalia's Lieutenant, which could also be a good card for this deck. After Thalia's Lieutenant is played (and each turn thereafter) Lightning Berserker can help buff Thalia's Lieutenant. Very good combo.

The buff ability of Lightning Berserker is optional. That would indeed tie up two mana (one to cast, one for the +1/+0 ability). Dash, however, is not an extra cost, it's an alternative cost. The extra mana-cost ability I personally rarely use because it does tie up mana early game. It's the dash mechanic that makes the card so great.

I agree that Eidolon of the Great Revel is also a good card, but it costs an extra mana (for a 2/2 with a great ability, very admittedly), but a speed deck looks for as many 1 mana creatures as possible. That choice is entirely dependent on the play style of the individual. I look to empty my hand and get creatures out as fast as my mana allows. Others look to preserve cards in hand, and slow the play a bit. That's just a different play style. A recurring creature (like Lightning Berserker) is quite nice, in some instances, as it protects the creature for at least the opponent's turn.

Just my opinion, for what little it's worth. :-) I get where you're coming from with Eidolon of the Great Revel, but I think you have undervalued Lightning Berserker. I could be wrong, but I think the card is worth a try in play testing to see. Cheers!

April 20, 2017 11:03 p.m.

Shamble Back might be a solid addition. That card has significant value for only a single . I have a mono-black weenie deck (standard format, though) that might give you some ideas. Maybe not. I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions you might have for my deck, though! Mono-black weenie speed deck (budget)

Cool deck! +1 from me!
