Desperate Ritual

Instant — Arcane

Gain

Splice onto Arcane (As you cast an Arcane spell, you may reveal this card from your hand and pay its splice cost. If you do, add this card's effects to that spell.)

lagotripha on $10 Controlled Burn, Arcane Edition! [UltraBudget]

Going into 3 colours on a budget can be tough, but there are some great options - Field of Ruin, Exotic Orchard, Aether Hub/Crumbling Vestige, etc. They aren't perfect, but a little planning can get them to stick.

The biggest thing I can offer is that splicing to arcane has various combos with 'copy spell with x cmc or less' effects. Izzet Guildmage+Desperate Ritual is traditional, but guildmage plays nice with everything else. Similarly, Sea Gate Stormcaller, Dual Strike etc.

With all of that said, I'd look at blue creatures - Delver of Secrets  Flip etc, with some etb effects like stormcaller, with Veil of Secrecy as protection rather than stretching to white.

Hey! You've given a suggestion on one of my decks, so I've thought I could return the favor. :)

I'm not sure how casual/competitive this deck is aimed to be, so I will give suggestions for both.

For a more competitive deck, I'd suggest:

The first three help you create disgusting solitaire turns while the last one may be the easiest win with Mizzix there is.

For a more casual deck, I'd suggest:

General card suggestions:

Mizzix's Mastery, Epic Experiment, Chaos Warp, Commit / Memory, Volcanic Vision, Invert / Invent, Prophetic Bolt, Frantic Search, Pore Over the Pages, Rewind, Solve the Equation and once again Bonus Round (this card is seriously good)

Also, I invite you to have a look at my old Mizzix deck and/or my up-to-date Zaffai deck for some inspiration.

I'm sorry for the long comment in case you didn't wish for suggestions. Just wanted to help. :^)

Neat concept! Pyrohemia is a super cool card.

I think you could maybe lean a bit more into the prison theme here. Some cards like Manamorphose and Fling seem more like filler. Deflecting Palm also doesn't really do much here, since it will only redirect one instance of Pyrohemia. The next cards to cut, if you do need to cut more, would probably be Rile and maybe a land.

To replace these cards I would probably go up to a 3rd Pyrohemia. Some classic prison cards are Ensnaring Bridge and Blood Moon, which are unfortunately pretty expensive but do a lot of work. Maindeck Blood Moon especially looks very strong here, even if you can only get a hold of 2 copies. Some other cards like Fury could probably be good here to pitch extra copies of Pyrohemia, but its unfortunately quite expensive as well and I would definitely prioritize getting Moons over this.

Blasphemous Act is a very strong card, but also pretty conditional. I think including a a few smaller wipes like Slagstorm would be a good idea (maybe 2?). Chandra, Torch of Defiance is a very strong walker that isn't too expensive, and you could include 2 or so copies here. Walkers seem good since they aren't hit by Pyrohemia.

Monored Prison frequently plays rituals like Desperate Ritual (and used to play Simian Spirit Guide rip monke) to ramp faster into their 3 drop prison pieces. It could help you drop an earlier Pyrohemia, although it wont let you drop a turn 2 3-drop into a turn 3 pyrohemia.

Some interesting tech: Ghost Quarter and Field of Ruin are Cleansing Wildfire on lands. I'd definitely run them.

If you can afford them, Arid Mesa and Scalding Tarn are at all-time lows, I'd snap one of each up as soon as possible if it's in your budget.

The big thing Moraug wants is to make several land drops in one turn, so maximizing the number of fetch effects in the deck is key.

One thing you also want is to cast Moraug as fast as possible. He is six mana and that can be clunky, to say the least. I'd consider rituals, at the very least Irencrag Feat and Seething Song, but optimally those plus Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Rite of Flame and Simian Spirit Guide. Those can help you get Moraug out quickly or just let you slam your other big things like Etali as soon as possible. Consider cutting some of the less powerful things like Glint-Horn, Feldon and Magus.

I was gonna say "cut Felhide Spiritbinder" but with him and something like Terror, Fanatic or Combat Celebrant you can do some busted stuff. Neheb + Celebrant + Spiritbinder is pseudo infinite, by the way, and it just gets super busted with Moraug's "+1/+0 for each attack" clause.

It’s pretty confusing, but it is a “Doomsday” combo that can be set up in Turn 3 and start/kill Turn 4.

Turn 3: Cast Recross the Paths, as the card resolves you reveal your entire library to show there are no lands. Since the card says “…put the rest of the cards on the bottom of your library in any order…”, you get to order the deck to:

After stacking your deck, you clash with your opponents and reveal Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip, put it on the bottom of your library, and put Recross the Paths back into your hand.

Turn 4:

In your draw step, draw and reveal Reforge the Soul to trigger miracle and cast it. Draw:

Now we should have one untapped land, follow the steps below:

  1. Play Shatterskull, the Hammer Pass  Flip untapped
  2. Cast Pact of the Titan
  3. Cast Infernal Plunge, sacrificing the 4/4 Giant; 3 Red floating, 1 lands Untapped
  4. Cast Pyromancer Ascension; 2 Red Floating
  5. Cast Manamorphose, add 1 Red and 1 Green, draw the third Manamorphose; 1 Red 1 Green floating
  6. Cast second Manamorphose, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, put 1 counter on it, add 1 Red 1 Green, draw the fourth Manamorphose; 1 Red 1 Green floating
  7. Cast third Manamorphose, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, put the second counter on it, add 1 Red 1 Green, draw Bala Ged Recovery  Flip; 1 Red 1 Green floating
  8. Cast fourth Manamorphose, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, resolve Pyromancer Ascension and put a copy on the stack

    2 Red 2 Green floating

  9. Cast Desperate Ritual, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, resolve Pyromancer Ascension and put a copy on the stack, resolve both 6 Red 2 Green floating

  10. Cast Bala Ged Recovery  Flip targeting Manamorphose, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, resolve Pyromancer Ascension and put a copy on the stack. The copy will target Desperate Ritual, resolve both spells 4 Red 1 Green Floating

  11. Cast Manamorphose, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, resolve Pyromancer Ascension and put a copy on the stack

    • The first will add 2 Red and draw the second Bala Ged Recovery  Flip
    • The second will add 2 Green and draw anything 4 Red 3 Green Floating
  12. Cast Desperate Ritual with Splice Onto Arcane with the second Desperate Ritual, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, resolve Pyromancer Ascension and add a copy. Resolve both add 12 Red 12 Red 3 Green Floating

  13. Cast second Bala Ged Recovery  Flip targeting Desperate Ritual, trigger Pyromancer Ascension, resolve Pyromancer Ascension, make a copy targeting a Bala Ged Recovery  Flip, resolve both 9 Red 2 Green Floating

  14. Repeat step 12 to add 12 Red mana 19 Red 2 Green Floating

  15. Cast Bala Ged Recovery  Flip to return Manamorphose and Bala Ged Recovery  Flip

    17 Red 1 Green Floating

  16. Cast Manamorphose, add 4 green draw 2;

    15 Red 5 Green Floating

  17. Repeat step 13, return Desperate Ritual and a Bala Ged Recovery  Flip

At this point, steps 12-17 will loop and lead to an arbitrarily large amount of mana and card draw. With that you can do a bunch of wonky things including:

For the record, I don’t play belcher, but I learned the combo after getting belched so many times haha

Lightning Bolt interferes with the Chalice of the Void game plan. Some 2 Mana removal like maindeck Abrades might be nice though, particularly with the Liquimetal Coating game plan, maybe 2 over some Mind Stone. I think I prefer Desperate Ritual to stay as a 4 of because while worst late game, being able to facilitate a t2 blood moon (or t1 on the draw with gemstones) can be back breaking.
