alfindeol Deckling

Just your average Johnny/Spike looking to build around awkward commanders, draft combo decks and secretly awaiting the glorious return of 60 card, casual multiplayer.

shame Thanks for the comment and the upvote!

Both of those cards have had their moment in the sun in the deck and did solid work on occasion. Both however got cut for similar reasons. They're both (close to) dead if you're not going off.

The deck used to run a number of damage doubling effects like Gratuitous Violence, but they were frequently win-more for me. Either I was going off and winning, or not. The only that stuck around is Illusionist's Bracers as it has some added utility when Borbor is out, but you can't combo off AND it copies the ability to generate two draws instead of one with Keen Sense Even that would probably be best getting cut as the deck doesn't really take advantage of it much anymore. What I DO like about Quest for Pure Flame though is that it is one mana. If you top decked it in the middle of going off, it's easy to sneak into play.

Nostalgic Dreams is also at it's best when you're going off. One of the biggest issues the deck has is running out of gas in general. Especially if you hit one of your extra land play cards, you can very quickly be sitting on 7 mana, but no cards in hand on turn 4, so I've opted for more traditional draw like Harmonize. In that scenario, Dreams is a dead card as you need to discard something to get value.
