I love EDH! Building a strong deck in this format makes your brain work hard.

You explained everything very clearly, I got you're point. Your opinion was useful for me too, so thanks.

+1! The deck is beautiful!

Some suggestions:

  • High Market, Phyrexian Tower - extra sacrifice outlets, the Tower especially good, because it provides speed. I understand that you already have a decent sacrifice outlet in commander zone, but it always good to have another one in reserve.
  • Reflecting Pool
  • I guess you avoid using Sensei's Divining Top because you have Library in the deck? I would recommend to use it even if that's the reason.
  • Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood- decent draw spells for not running out of gas.

Hope it was helpful! I wish you good luck in making Varolz even more dangerous! :)

And I just saw my mistake about infinite mana, it won't happen in this case. For infinite mana you need an altar (Phyrexian Altar for example) instead of BS

Sorry for long response. I will try to explain this combo.

For example you have BS and ST on the battlefield, you play FH, when it enters the battlefield it triggers. You choose ST as the target and exile it. After that you tap BS and sacrifice FH targeting whatever you wish, FH triggers, goes to the graveyard, ST is back and two triggers goes to the stack (from ST and from BS), so you untap BS and put FH in play again... repeat the process.

I am not so good in clarifying such things (my English is far from perfect), sorry if it was not so helpful.

Scab-Clan Berserker is probably worse then Eidolon of the Great Revel and Harsh Mentor and his Renown ability is the drawback it is true, but still he can stop (or hurt prety much) an any fast combo deck (especialy storm decks). In early game, this creature can become renown very easy, especialy considering that it has haste. In late game... well, as this decks builder said: "Burn them fast or die bright!" :P. I think this card is just corresponds to the general philosophy of the deck. But I have to admit that some time ago I cut this guy out of my Grenzo deck after some testing. But if AlmightyTentacle will decide to cut this card, then I would suggest to swap it for Viashino Heretic, Kari Zev, Skyship Raider or Mindsparker.

Eidolon of the Great Revel is a very good card (especialy in burn strategy and especialy in multiplayer), the goal of using such (sometime suicidal) damage dealers is to create the conditions under which You are losing life, but Your opponents losing MUCH MORE! Its like playing with Pestilence. Actualy for this reason I would like to suggest cards like Rolling Earthquake or Earthquake.

Can't say confidently about Burning Earth, cuz I never played with this card, but from what I see I can tell that this card can punish decks that realy greedy for mana, for example it can shut down or slow down some infinite mana combos (Peregrine Drake, Palinchron and infinite High Tide combos say hellow!). But for me it seems like it is to slow spell, but I may be wrong.

Never seen befor this card - Devastating Summons, pretty interesting. For sure I would create two 0/0 tokens and punch for 4 in each opponents face. Actualy this card could create triggers not just fo ETB but for LTB too: (6/15/2010: You may sacrifice zero lands as you cast Devastating Summons. If you do, youll put two 0/0 creature tokens onto the battlefield as the spell resolves. Unless some effect (such as the one from Glorious Anthem) is boosting their toughness, theyll be put into the graveyard as a state-based action. Abilities that trigger when a creature enters the battlefield will trigger, as will those that trigger when a creature leaves the battlefield.). And all this for 1 red mana, pretty juicy.

I have to agree with AlmightyTentacle about copy spells. Unfortunately You can't be aggresive with copy spells in Your hand when there is nothing to copy. In the deck like this one copy spells will be dead draw very often. And You will have to rely on the opponents spells, which is pretty situational I think.

Also, Sudden Demise is a graet spell, don't understand why I didn't see it befor! Need to test it in my Grenzo deck. :)

Ok, I hope my recommendations will be helfull to You:

Hope it will help to You in Your deckbuildeng. Later maybe I will look through Your deck more closely.

Hi!

Thanks for the kind words and for the upvote!

Vedalken Mastermind is not a bad card. And I'm familiar with this combination. When I tested it, I was faced with the fact that Vedalken Mastermind is not so useful outside of combo. But now that You have reminded me about that card, I'll give it another chance and try to test it again. Maybe it will help to deal with symmetry of some other stax cards in the deck.

Of course I do not mind. I'll look at Your deck, and I will help with all I can.

Hi! Great deck man!

I don't know Your opinion about infinite combos, but if You add Fiend Hunter then You could create infinite mana and infinite counters on Asmira, Holy Avenger with Sun Titan/Karmic Guide + altars, or + Blasting Station and everyone dead.

Great choice of commander!

As for the Dark Ritual... I understand what You trying to say.Based on my experience playing this deck, I can say that DR was very often realy helpful. Considering that the deck has no access to green, this spell often gives You a decent speed up. However I have to admit that there was some moments in some games whene I was disappointed drawing this card.

I will think about Your words about DR, maybe I will try to test the deck without it.

Thanks a lot again, for all Your comments and Your opinion on specific cards!

Hi Baerik!

Thanks a lot for Your comment. I agree that Replenish is not good enough. I came to this conclusion a long time ago, and was thinking to replace it. Actually I already testing the deck without Replenish (dropped it for Yawgmoth's Will). You confirmed my slowly growing doubts about this card, thanks for that. Obzedat aid is not bad, but I think it is to slow.

I see that you have Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in maybeboard. I recommend You to test Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, it is very good ramp card for mono-color.
