City on Fire


Convoke (You may tap your creatures as you cast this spell. Each creature you tap while casting this spell pays for or one mana of that creature's colour.)

If a source you control would deal damage to a permanent or player, it deals triple that damage instead.

Phyrexian Reclamation was there as a way to get the token generatros back like Krenko, Mob Boss. I do understand the potential of taking it out.

War Cadence has not been tested as it is the newest addition. I liked the idea of politicing. Plus, it was a win condition giving my creatures essentially unblockable. I'll think about it.

Vedalken Orrery is one of those cards I include in almost all of my decks. It is always a good choice. However, I do understand the fact that this deck usually wins on my turn in combat, so it may not be NEEDED here.

Because I have Wound Reflection and Archfiend of Despair I was debating on City on Fire. It rarely wins the turn it comes down and it tells the whole table what I'm about to do on my next turn. Granted, blocking creatures still triple damage.

Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin was another one that has been kind of subpar. If I can get it down turn two or three it is a powerhouse. Late game it's pretty bas as it has small attack and is required to attack.

Call the Coppercoats is a party-in-a-can.

Scepter of Celebration can spit out massive amounts of tokens while giving a beefy dude trample.

City on Fire is a bit pricier than the 1.50 or so avg. the deck has, but it's well worth the price and a slot. It's tanked in price somewhat recently but I don't see it staying this cheap personally.

I have checked my own Caesar deck, Ave, True to Caesar (Primer Prototype), and I found another card you may consider. City on Fire is another way to multiply damage and it can be paid through your tokens, meanwhile Caesar's damage can still be tripled even while you have your tokens tapped.

Have you considered any of the damage triplers, such as Fiery Emancipation or City on Fire?

Some other adds you can consider for the deck with City on Fire is great, but you cannot play Ojer Axonil, Deepest Might  Flip with it. Your opponent gets to choose how the replacement effects stack. So, if you that or Fiery Emancipation in the deck. Ojer Axonil, Deepest Might  Flip is kinda of a dead card if you draw it or its on the field.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions, king-saproling abd Made_Compleat!

Made_Compleat My experience playing cards like Wound Reflection, Fiery Emancipation, and City on Fire has taught me that while they can be excellent for a deck, they're often removed before making the splash you're hoping for. A lot of the time (at least in my play group), it feels as if I paid 6+ mana to force a player to play a removal spell. Another thing I learned while playing Dragon's Approach w/ another commander, is that once you start playing multiple spells per turn, the other 3 players tend to gang up on you. So playing cards like Solphim, Mayhem Dominus and Bloodletter of Aclazotz instead give you the same effect, but also give you some blockers if needed.

I'm not thrilled with the 3 black pips of Bloodletter of Aclazotz, but.. this deck does the majority of it's dmg at sorcery speed. That being said.. I'm HOPING that it mayyyy be viewed as "less threatening", so maybe it'll last longer? But even if it does get removed, it won't feel as if I spent an entire turn just casting a single spell.

We'll see what happens, though! I'll also check into the other recommendations. Have a great holiday!

If you are playing City on Fire, have you considered Fiery Emancipation? They are almost the same card, an extremely strong effect, and Fiery Emancipation is now about the same price or cheaper.

Nice deck! I started brewing AtBA almost immediately after seeing it spoiled and have been working on the deck making improvements/changes over time, and it is easily my favourite deck at the moment. One thing that I do differently with mine is focus more on low cost creatures that make tokens on ETB, things like Weaponcraft Enthusiast & Sengir Autocrat ideally as they make 2-3 tokens to get that first or second Blood Avatar cast, You're Confronted by Robbers is great also because it's an instant, Waylay is the cheapest way to make 3 tokens on your turn. Because of this I also run all the good reanimator spells, and since that includes Animate Dead I also run Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward, which on it's own is also good, especially if you run a lot of mana rocks. I chose not to run Worldgorger Dragon for the infinite mana combo as it isn't good on its own, where Abdel Adrian is. Since you run Fury Storm I would consider running Storm-Kiln Artist for the combo potential, as he is also good for ramping off of instants/sorceries and synergizes with the toke doublers (get Mondrak out of the sideboard and into the 99). It also combos with Chain of Smog for infinite mana if you're into that (I'm not). Academy Rector is awesome for cheating in Anointed Procession if you're about to make tokens or City on Fire if you already have Blood Avatar(s). Roaming Throne from Lost Caverns of Ixilan is also good for the same reasons Isshin is, but it has Ward 2 and is colourless. I also run most of the lower cost extra combat cards to try to maximize the attack triggers, Goblin Goliath has been an (expensive) all-star. Any planeswalker with + ability that make tokens are also great.

There are so many different things you could focus on with this deck I find it hard just to narrow it down to the gameplan you're after, which is one of the things I love about it. The one thing my deck is lacking now is Lifelink, I'm looking at Teysa Karlov because vigilance is great too, but I don't focus too much on death triggers, so Whip of Erebos may take the spot.

Excited to see future updates on this! Will post my decklist eventually and link it here, interested to see your comments.
