Crow-Umbra on Triple Six, Five, Forked Tongue [Primer]

Thank you for your suggestions IHATENAMES and Coward_Token.

Regarding Hidetsugu, Devouring Chaos, I should've written a deck update disclaimer that I'm just play-testing it right now. Mindleecher is still in its slot in paper. I'm not a big fan that it is 7 total mana to cast & activate it once. I rationalized that it would be a bit more doable with treasure tokens available, but still not ideal.

I think I had Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip in an older version of my Maybe Board, or it's in the Maybe Board of my Moxfield version of the deck. I honestly forgot about it lol. I'd definitely consider it, especially with the option for repeated removal on its flip side.

I've for sure play-tested Ghirapur AEther Grid in the past and wasn't too excited, personally. In the games I've actually played the deck IRL, I felt like I got the best use out of treasures by having them up for mana for the instant-speed removal and interaction I'm currently running.

After play-testing and playing with more X-spells in the earliest versions of the deck ( Exsanguinate and Commune with Lava), I decided to move away from X spells since they felt really bad to get stranded with impulse draw. I think Bolas's Citadel fits a similar role that Indomitable Creativity would, but has the upsides of being repeatable, can hit the table for damage, and can be tutored out by Magda, Brazen Outlaw.

Phyrexian Arena, for me, falls into that weird space of not being amazing, but being just good enough to keep around. I'm a bit more biased since I've had the fortune of playing it turns 2-3 in the IRL games I've played with this deck. It helped me stay consistent with land drops and keeping my hand stocked enough. I have considered Stinging Study as a potential replacement. I'm always trying to find the right mix of repeated/incremental effects vs burst effects.

Regarding my utility lands, I only included the Urborg because I pulled a copy from Timespiral Remastered, and had a couple copies of Crypt Ghast around that I bought back in my earliest RTR days lol. I definitely have a Mikokoro around that I could likely swap in.

OrigamiMaster502 - Commune with Lava is okay, and is generally preferred in mid-late game if my treasure production has been decent so far. I rarely put more than 2-3 mana into the X. I think for the most part, my CMC curve is pretty low that I can usually get a few spells off each turn.

If it under-performs for me, I think that Commune with Lava could be replaced with Deadly Dispute or another 2-3 cmc draw spell.

Hi OrigamiMaster502, I'm only running Torment of Hailfire and Commune with Lava as my only X spells. I think 2 X spells are fine, as it kinda sucks to get them on impulse draw.

Aside from those 2, the treasures are generally helpful for playing interaction & removal when I need to, and playing stolen spells. I can also sac a bunch of treasures to Magda, Brazen Outlaw to tutor out Bolas's Citadel, Uba Mask, or Goldspan Dragon.

I always found sunforger better in decks like feather (mine does not run it to mana expensive for the payoff) or Firesong and Sunspeaker style decks they get more use

The best equipment are Sword of Fire and Ice it draws and if you have double strike and hit twice you get two triggers and Sword of Feast and Famine untapping extra mana then you pair it with Aggravated Assault yea unlimited combat is possible and note the swords have protection

Auras are always worse than equipment with few exceptions because they just blow up your creature and they are gone example of exception Rancor.

In boros you are limited on card draw but it is way better than the old days. You are better off looting or exiling to dig through your deck than trying to use sunforger

I would look at Commune with Lava instant speed until the end of your next turn is so sweet. Light Up the Stage Valakut Awakening  Flip

Sunbird's Invocation Cascade light but dam I gotten so much value from this card people have to use their removal on it all the time.

I also like Furious Rise in these style of decks I run it in my Samut deck.

Other ones to look at The Immortal Sun Outpost Siege Endless Atlas

You can always leverage Monarch white has always had it but red has some monarch triggers as while now and you are going to be combat oriented so you have that to explore for more card draw.

Then you have your Sram, Senior Edificer and Puresteel Paladin

I would also think about Sigarda's Aid it helps a lot

Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist would great in a deck like that as while

DarkMagician on Izzet worth it?

Scytec the Dualcaster lines are: Dualcaster Mage + Comet Storm + Ghostly Flicker . Comet Storm can be replaced by Commune with Lava hitting the Comet Storm or Thassa's Oracle for the win. Dualcaster Mage + Twinflame or Heat Shimmer. Not sold on the shimmer yet. Might also include Sublime Epiphany for more redundancy.
