Devil's Play


Devil's Play deals X damage to target creature, player or planeswalker.

Flashback (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its flashback cost. Then exile it.)

Hey MyUsernameWasTakenTwice just updated this deck for 2023 and saw your comment. The win conditions are:

  1. Dumping mana into Devil's Play then copying it.

  2. Cloning Electrostatic Field/Firebrand Archer/Guttersnipe then playing/copying spells.

  3. Planeswalkers/Emblems.

     ElTacoDude: Sorry but I disagree lol. Crackle with Power only costs five mana to deal five damage to a single target, where everything you've listed there is minimum six.

     In the case of Fireball & Rolling Thunder you have to divide their damage to hit multiple opponents. Devil's Play & Banefire can only hit a single target, and Fall of the Titans can only hit two targets.

     Comet Storm is good but to deal 15 damage to three opponents costs twenty mana whereas Crackle with Power only costs fourteen.

     Jaya's Immolating Inferno is something I might consider as an addition as opposed to a replacement. Even then a bit hesitant though - if you're sitting on a lethal amount of treasures and the board gets wiped (as it tends to do haha) and you don't have another cheap-to-cast Legendary in hand, you're cutting into your total damage just to recast Prosper, Tome-Bound in order to meet it's Legendary condition. The spells are meant to be finishers, so you can see how this scenario is not ideal.

     All that being said, I'm definitely going to consider Jaya's Immolating Inferno though. Thanks! =)

I don't understand the Crackle with Power, isn't it just the least efficient and least flexible Fireball effect? Rolling Thunder, Devil's Play, Jaya's Immolating Inferno, Fall of the Titans, Banefire, or probably the best one, Comet Storm are all better. I might be wrong, but I think any of those would be an upgrade on Crackle with Power.

I will say this will still be a unique tron list, especially if you can find a way to abuse the insane amount of ramp you have and using some X burn spell like Bonfire of the Damned, Devil's Play, or Red Sun's Zenith. AND DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE BINFIRE. That card destroyed an entire IQ I was at, I ran it in a Jund Beats list and people were honking mad when they got hit with it. They were all "Oh no my delver and resto angel!!!"

FounderX I'll be working on fixing Red this weekend so I may be trimming the Hydras down, might try and swap a few with some X Burns like Devil's Play etc al.

There's so many green pips that switching Snek to Karametra's Acolyte might be worth it.

Chandra's Ignition is the big finish in my Izzet deck (post coming soon) and my play group is tired of it already ;) Gonna keep Fling in as my pity revenge card.

Thanks for all the input!

Hi tiffanyann, totally forgot to mention Chandra's Ignition, a mid to late-game finisher. Maybe a Devil's Play? #thinkingoutloud. Watch out cutting lands, that Lotus Cobra needs a few land drops, otherwise it is sitting their knitting hydra sweaters. You could make use of Karametra's Acolyte devotion to green or perhaps a Nyx Lotus. My Gargos deck net 15 plus mana mid-game easily with both Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx (fetchable with a Crop Rotation or Expedition Map if needed faster) and Nyx Lotus. Ulvenwald Hydra, cheaper to cast if Gargos is out, also fetches a land, always go for Nykthos. Happy Brewing.

Really like this deck. Perhaps Devil's Play and Mindswipe would help finish off an opponent.

Thassa, Deep-Dwelling could help generate more artifact tokens by bouncing your commander or other cards such as Urza and dockside extortionist

Nice deck! Is there room for Stuffy Doll or Boros Reckoner in this list? Do you have an out if you start the combo when your opponent has more life, or have Banefire / Devil's Play filled that role?
