Braid of Fire


Cumulative upkeep-Add (Red) to your mana pool. (At the beginning of your upkeep, put an age counter on this permanent, then sacrifice it unless you pay its upkeep cost for each age counter on it.)

I used to play Braid of Fire with her and it was a blast. Thran Turbine was quite good as well.

OMG. A weird control deck that gives people poison counters when counter spelling them? That sounds interesting. It says "each turn" not "on your turn", so it should trigger off of instants like you said. That's super cool. Since he has black in his mana colors, he has access to a lot of tutors to get a Phyresis or Grafted Exoskeleton. With Braid of Fire and x cost cards like Fireball, you could possibly just dump a lethal amount of counters on an opponent.

Have you thought about Braid of Fire or Assault Strobe?

Eidolon of the Great Revel is a great staple in Modern burn decks, and often a must-have.

Conversely, both Soulfire Grand Master and Braid of Fire are terrible for burn. Burn wants a game to go quickly, and neither of these cards help with that. Soulfire Grand Master doesn’t really threaten the opponent at all, and burn never wants a game to go long enough to have 4+ mana available for that ability… the card is super-bad. Similarly, burn is intended to be so quick and low-to-the-ground that Braid of Fire does nothing for you, it just robs you of a turn & card wasted casting it.

Looking at the rest of the list, I would suggest to ditch Shock. 2 damage is too low to be useful. Rip Apart is also super-bad because it can’t hit-face. Likewise running any more than 1-2 copies of Deflecting Palm is excessive… the card really isn’t that good and is better as a sideboard option.

Top tier boros burn already exists as a pretty-solved concept, i’d suggest looking at what’s being played at the moment here.

Should i run Braid of Fire or Eidolon of the Great Revel? I think my tactic with Monastery Mentor and Soulfire Grand Master would be removed if I did get those cards, possibly? Or should I run all of it and make sure i don't die from Eidolon of the Great Revel by having Soulfire Grand Master?

Found the remains of a G/R land destruction deck the other day... Thresher Beast and Destructive Urge sitting next to each other. Braid of Fire, Brand of Ill Omen and Magmatic Core were in there as well...

Since you mentioned mana burn, there is of course Yurlok of Scorch Thrash. There are a lot of ways to abuse his ability with your own cards (I especially like Blinkmoth Urn and Belbe, Corrupted Observer with Yurlok). But there are a lot of cards that could be donated to add to his destructiveness. Braid of Fire and Black Market come to mind, but I know there's more stuff that forces you to add a ton of mana.

Also, my all-time favorite donate move is Illusions of Grandeur.

In the case of Rampage, I've always thought it could've been a decent mechanic without the "beyond the first" clause. It can be a pseudo evasion because it might discourage blocking.

On Cumulative Upkeep - I think Braid of Fire has its uses in some rouge combo decks.
