Anger of the Gods Discussion

Peoyogon Thanks for the comment! I used to have Geosurge in early builds of this deck, and tried Desperate Ritual as well, but found that it's better to "ramp" by adding removal and gaining more turns to draw lands, because unlike the proper ramp spells they're never dead cards in hand if you only have them and no creatures or if you already have enough mana, since they slow down the opponent. That said, I'd love to run Seething Song and Rite of Flame as they're a lot stronger than the ramp spells I've tried, but they're both banned in Modern, haha.
Anger of the Gods is not a bad idea, but I like my cost-reducing creatures too much to run it, I think. That said, you did get me thinking about Pyroclasm or maybe Volcanic Fallout! They don't kill my creatures but are still enough to deal with quite a number of opposing creatures (and gets through hexproof and such too). I'm going to replace Wild Slash with pyroclasm for a while and see how I feel about it in testing before deciding to add more or try another board wipe.

Really fun looking deck! I've always wanted to build a low-to-the-ground dragon tribal.
I wonder if fast Mana spells like Seething Song, Pyretic Ritual, or a handful of Rite of Flames could be another option to get those big dragons out a bit earlier? It might be nice to have a ramp option not connected to a creature, especially if you are up against decks with a lot of creature removal.
I also noticed that your big dragons are all at 4 toughness; I could see an Anger of the Gods or two hrecking havoc against many boards while leaving all your baddies to swoop in for the kill. If you went down this route, replacing some of the creature-based discount effects for fast Mana would also help minimize your causalties.
Just an idea though! :)

Definitely, expected you to build this deck. Let's see if I can help out any. Not the biggest fan of equipments but that card draw engine combined with utility may sway me.
Sunforger - would be excellent but I know you're opposed to tutors; though being able to snag damaged based wrath effects like Anger of the Gods and Sweltering Suns could really like you take advantage of your commanders secound ability.

Ophilias I suppose it depends on what kinds of decks you're facing. In an unknown meta, I wouldn't be concerned about it. If you're facing lots of Anger of the Gods, you can consider it. In general I prefer spells that are more widely applicable. So, if you're worried about boardwipes like Anger of the Gods or Wrath of God, consider something like Unbreakable Formation, which can help against all sweepers and most removal spells (anything that says "destroy"). Or if you think you'll need bigger creatures to contend with your opponent's creatures, boosting effects like Honor of the Pure and Glorious Anthem are more widely useful because they make your dudes more defensive AND powerful.

Love it. Consider Void Snare, AEtherize and Displacement Wave, or maybe some red board wipes like Pyroclasm or Anger of the Gods to slow things down. You could also run Thing in the Ice Flip as both a board wipe and alternate win condition, but I would recommend it as a sideboard gag. After game 1, your opponent will pull creature removal, maybe hanging on to bolts for your face. Game 2 you shouldn't have to protect Thing much. Curious how this deck does, as I'm thinking about running this for fun: Bouncy Castle Reverse Rack (Budget). +1.

BennyBoy12 Nice deck too.
Don't you think you put too many lands in your deck ? With less, you'll be able to add some nice creatures, especially some indestructible ones (gods ?) who will not be killed with your board wipes.

It prevents cards like Anger of the Gods from wiping our board.

Use board wipes with a bunch of eggs on the field. You'll get a bunch of creeps and your opponents get nothing. Phyrexian Rebirth was in the precon, but Wrath of God, Fumigate, Anger of the Gods, and Blasphemous Act are all good.
