RambIe on Rippling Dragon's Approach

1 month ago

I have to back enpc on this one izzet is a superior choice
I ran 15 copys of Dragon's Approach in my deck and had no problems chaining off by utilizing cards like Niv-Mizzet, Parun & Archmage Emeritus
as for Thrumming Stone odd's of 1 in 4 of a 100 card deck is 25 cards. but things never run that smooth so in a mono red deck that needs this to be a guaranteed hit i would run odds of 1 in 3 (33 cards) then stack by odds with cards like Dragon's Rage Channeler & Burning Prophet

Vessiliana on Feather, the Redeemed

First off, I envy you your opportunity to play Feather! My meta hated her so much they straight up begged me to retire her.

I definitely recommend some of the little cantrips, like Rile. I also found Burning Prophet to be great, and I had a bit of an heroic sub-theme, so Anax and Cymede were in it, and Zada, Hedron Grinder from your maybeboard did real work. I also think that Storm-Kiln Artist will be your best friend ever.

Grubbernaut on Best Red Creatures?

In a land destruction list, Boarding Party will definitely be the best and should be a 4-of.

That being said, you want all your creatures to be win-cons; deny resources until you're ahead, then go for the kill. I don't think Burning Prophet is where you want to be in a list like that; you'll struggle to get more than one trigger in a turn.

Beetleback Chief is okay; you could also consider something like Self-Assembler for card advantage.

With all of that, though, R/G is definitely going to be more powerful if you're chasing wins - but as a terminal brewer, I understand the desire to diverge. :)

Cheers!

Lowenstein on Best Red Creatures?

6 months ago

I am working on a Mono R land destruction list. Just like in Modern, the issue is being able to win. I have 4 Burning Prophet which work pretty well, and 4 Beetleback Chief and 2 Boarding Party . I guess the reason why people run RG land destruction is bc of ramo and better creatures, but I’m enjoying experimenting with mono R.

So that being said, are there any better red creatures in Pauper? Probably ones with cmc 3 or higher that can help finish the game?

multimedia on Adeliz leads some angry Wizards

11 months ago

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Good build on such a low a budget. Realistically to make much improvements you're going to have to be able to spend more than $30 for your deck.

My advice is to lower the mana curve by adding more low CMC Wizards and more low CMC instants and sorceries that draw cards. End the curve with two five drops Wizards: Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Shipwreck Dowser and one six drop Archetype of Imagination. I suggest playing double the amount or more of instants and sorceries than Wizards because technically you don't need other Wizards because Adeliz can pump herself. Still have a strong base of low CMC Wizards, just a smaller one.

Since Adeliz can pump herself and has flying she is really your best win condition doing 21 Commander damage to each opponent. The problem with Adeliz is she doesn't provide card advantage only pump therefore you need a lot of other cards that draw cards to fuel the pump.


Some Wizards can help for card advantage:

  • Windrider Wizard: lets you draw each time you cast an instant or sorcery or even a Wizard and he has flying which makes him a threat to attack. If just about every card you cast draws you a card then that's a nice advantage to keep drawing instants/sorceries/Wizards.
  • Burning Prophet: repeatable scry is powerful when you want to draw certain cards and not lands or other cards. She can filter away lands so that you draw instants/sorceries/Wizards.

Consider more low CMC Wizards? That way you can establish a Wizard army quicker and get faster benefits from Adeliz with other Wizards. More low CMC flying Wizards can benefit much more from the pump from Adeliz because they can more easily do combat damage to an opponent:

With more low CMC flying Wizards then cards such as Bident of Thassa and Reconnaissance Mission can draw a lot of cards since you draw a card for each creature who does combat damage to a player. This is a way to keep refilling your hand with instants/sorceries by attacking with Wizards even if you don't have instants/sorceries to cast. Flying Wizards are still going to do combat damage to a player and draw cards. Shared Animosity is repeatable pump for each attacking Wizard you control. This repeatable effect is in addition too any pump that Adeliz does.


Izzet has a wealth of good low CMC budget instants/sorceries that draw cards that are staples of Commander:

Shadow Rift and Slip Through Space are one drop spells that can make Adeliz unblockable while also drawing a card.

Some budget lands upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

replace nimble blade with Burning Prophet

dday00111 on Prowess Draw

1 year ago

gato91, I'll use the full playset of Crash Through. Good call for replacing Soul-Guide Lantern for Tormod's Crypt. I wanted the card draw, but I forgot artifacts can buff prowess. Makes me think about Bone Saw, but that's a more aggressive play. I'll think about Bedlam Reveler, but if I wanted to add it, I'd probably have to take out Chandra, Torch of Defiance. And doing that just augments the trample win condition rather than adding an alternate win condition emblem with some solid loyalty abilities. I'm aware it does slow down the deck for that to happen. I'll try my current list for my next Pioneer matches, and if it's too slow, I know your suggestion will help speed things up.

I never thought of Burning Prophet, but adding two of her in can't be that bad. Not just yet though. If I eventually do, I should take away 4x Abbot of Keral Keep or Heartfire Immolator, add three of her and add an extra Lightning Strike or Light Up the Stage. Does that sound about right? I'll have to play a bit to determine to go full draw or if Heartfire Immolator's sacrifice ability is too good to give up.

Also tempted to put in 3x Spikefield Hazard  Flip as a replacement for Sunscorched Desert. Great for 'cycling' my lands for yet another prowess trigger after I have a decent mana base, and it solves my excess colorless mana problem.

Crash Through it's the best cantrip you can use I would use the playset of this.

Also you can consider Bedlam Revelerx2, have prowess and give you draw. (I use them x4 in Modern Mono Red Prowess).

Considering it's a experimental brew check Burning Prophet it's a seudo prowess creature but the scry can be powerful.

Because of the banning of Inverter you can take out from Side Collective Defiance, also in the sideboard I recommend to change Soul-Guide Lantern for Tormod's Crypt because have more synergy with prowess because 0 cost.
