Crow-Umbra on Salty Commanders!

Hi grumbledore, I've noticed that quite a few of the following cards are uncategorized, and figured they could fit into some of the following categories you have on site:

This is not an exhaustive list, but some of the ones I noticed from looking at my own deck categories.

Lhunthane on Birgi

Hey here is some thoughts I have on the deck. The comments are through the lens of trying to be very competitive.

With Birgi, the strongest win condition is storming out and clapping all of your opponent's cheeks in one fell swoop. The best way to achieve this is comboing out as opposed to going for a lot of chip damage. Chip damage by its very nature takes time and is hard to make work in a competitive meta (maybe in some form of stax it could work). Your deck list appears to have its foot in both doors which is fun and cool, but ultimately reduces the overall lethality of the deck.

The problem with mono-red as a top-tier EDH colour is that it is very limited in tutors, which makes it difficult to find your win conditions consistently. To overcome this, a player needs to put in a few win conditions and the ability to dig for them in the deck. You really are on the right track I think with all the cantrip and impulse draw spells. Dragon's Rage Channeler filters like a champ in this deck, and synergizes very well with Past in Flames and Underworld Breach

You have Grapeshot which is great, but if you were to also throw in an Aetherflux Reservoir and Manaform Hellkite you would be set up. Grinning Ignus with Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip gives you infinite storm. Add a Ruby Medallion to turn this into infinite mana, and a Impact Tremors or Altar of the Brood for an additional win con. Also quite funny with Sunbird's Invocation. You can tutor for the Ingus pretty reliably with Imperial Recruiter and Flamekin Harbinger.

So I realize this is turning into a small essay so I'll try to keep it a little briefer.

If you take the path of trying to combo, some cuts I'd make because they either are clunky, work towards a different win con, or just don't generate a ton of value are: Insurrection Captain Lannery Storm Quakebringer Toralf, God of Fury  Flip Blindblast Traitorous Blood Experimental Frenzy

If you are going to all-in commit to just combing off with ingus (which I think you should) also consider cutting: Sulfuric Vortex Stigma Lasher Solphim, Mayhem Dominus Torbran, Thane of Red Fell Mechanized Warfare

I can talk on and on and on about theory for this deck so just hit me up if you want more insight. You know what you're doing, so obviously ignore me if this "deck primer" doesn't suit you at all!

myden on Turn 5 - Darth Vadrik strikes back

Thats a sick list dude! A fellow Vadrik enthusiast, i see! I think you need more ways to buff his attack though, and Searing Touch is an insta-win if vadrik has 4+ power and you have Storm-Kiln Artist, Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip or Runaway Steam-Kin

That's a really good one!

One other you can do since you've already got it built into your deck with Mana Geyser, Runaway Steam-Kin, Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip and Battle Hymn if you get any of those to go off and get you 10+ mana you really want an X spell to dump all that mana and end your worst opponent (or the game if you're close).

My suggestions would be these:

  • Banefire - This is the most consistent one for ending someone and is best to copy.

  • Fall of the Titans - This one is great if you're certain it's not going to be countered and if you can cast it for its surge cost and then copy it as needed to take out everyone.

  • Crackle with Power - The biggest boom you can get with X iirc

  • Red Sun's Zenith - If you are certain you can dig into it again with all the card draw this is a good option

  • Jaya's Immolating Inferno - Decent like Fall of the Titans but not as good as Crackle

Also, since your deck relies on copying creatures so much you could add in more of that like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker

Guerric on [Primer] Casting the Mythal

Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip is a great card which is a powerhouse in my Feather, the Redeemed deck. She certainly isn't bad here because, as you say, she basically makes Inalla's ability free. My main objection to her that I can't really think of something I'd cut to put her in. She isn't a wizard and doesn't really further any of our other gameplans aside from mana discount, and I wouldn't really want to tinker with the deck's other engines, which work well, just to try to slot her in.

The only real card at the moment that I definitely would like to put in is Patron Wizard, which you suggested some time ago. I think it would be better than Voidmage Prodigy and a real pita for our opponents, I just have never gotten around to ordering him because I am busy and always forget when ordering. It might be for the best because there is that new secret lair foil that looks quite cool, and with that printing the price is the lowest ever. There's probably also some tinkering with the mana base that I could do as well, but in general I'm mostly happy with the deck given those exceptions.

How do we feel about Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip> let's say we cast a wizard, she triggers and gives us a red mana. Inalla's eminence ability triggers when the wizard we cast enters the field, we pay our floating red mana and create a token of the wizard...
