A few suggestions. I think you probably want to run at least 35 lands in order to keep the deck running consistently. You've got some decent ramp, and all the extra draw will help, but missing land drops sucks.
You might consider the damage doublers and tripler available in red Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath affect everyone, Gratuitous Violence or Inquisitor's Flail work for your commander, but the best would be Angrath's Marauders or Fiery Emancipation (!triple damage!) Since they only affect you and work for all your damage sources.
Stormfist Crusader is more of what you've got.
What to cut to make room for that stuff is kind of up to you but I think Game Plan , Grixis Charm , Dimir Charm , and Spectacle Mage would all be candidates for me.
Cool deck though and pretty reasonably priced for how effective it looks like it could be.

Wow, what a deck, very creative. I would probably buy it. . . except for the three Mana Confluences, very questionable. I'm assuming that is for blue mana, honestly, just run an Izzet Guildgate instead. This is very good but lacks win conditions, I have some notable suggestions below:) Suggestions:(at least consider sideboarding) Colossification + Fling (will usually seem suspicious in a gruul w a lil blue deck, so wait for your opponents to tap out, and if you want to take it even further Unleash Fury ) Brash Taunter + Unleash Fury or Brash Taunter + Star of Extinction add some counterspells maybe? Dissolve or Cancel Guttersnipe + Dictate of the Twin Gods (note: if you really wanna go crazy, throw in some Shock s, you're paying 1 for four damage lol) Finally, always reccomend Soul-Guide Lantern , pioneer players are mean and very often try to recast from the graveyards, as you will run into a lot more dreadhorde archanists probably, in black decks which is even more scary, given some of the spells they could play.


So that's all i got, like I said, i like the idea of this deck, just take these into consideration:) aslo, if you put Colossification on your Dreadhorde Archanist, essentially you can cast any instant or sorcery spell you want lol

Polaris on Can you give Nekusar infect?

2 months ago

Yes. The reason is that infect doesn't replace damage. Damage dealt by a source with infect is still damage, but instead of marking damage in creatures and causing players to lose life, it puts -1/-1 counters on creatures and poison counters on players.

Since infect damage is still damage, it can be increased by cards like Dictate of the Twin Gods or Torbran, Thane of Red Fell . The combo you have in mind will work.

Can you explain your plan a bit. With so few pirates in the 98 you are relying on Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator as your only source of damage ramp. I don't see many haste, or flash, enablers so this looks like a slow plan. It does combo nicely with Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar giving you extra treasure when it hits; but it is easy to see it coming. I would add more pirates to at least get a slow burn on the ramp. I love the spell-slinger style, but I just don't think you want to use these two commanders for this style of deck.

Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar is missing all their best friends: Angrath's Marauders (also a pirate), Dictate of the Twin Gods, Fiery Emancipation and Jeska, Thrice Reborn.

Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator also has some fun interactions with cards like Sorcerer's Wand and Quicksilver Dagger

griffstick on How to play aggro?

You got to take advantage of what boros gives you to be aggressive. The biggest thing boros gives you that no other color pairing gives you is extra combats. Take advantage of that with cards like Combat Celebrant, Aurelia, the Warleader, World at War, Scourge of the Throne, Seize the Day, Savage Beating, Relentless Assault, Moraug, Fury of Akoum, Waves of Aggression, Response / Resurgence, Breath of Fury Hellkite Charger, Aggravated Assault, Fury of the Horde and Port Razer. Along with that you need to speed up the damage output. Boros gives you damage doublers, with cards like Fiendish Duo, Goblin Goliath, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Insult, Furnace of Rath, Gratuitous Violence, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Curse of Bloodletting, Bitter Feud, Angrath's Marauders, Overblaze, Inquisitor's Flail, and Fiery Emancipation.

Also consider other things boros gives you that will speed up damage like double strike. Boros gives you haste, trample, and evasion. You need to consider all of those. All while staying low on curve and fast in ramp. If you do this you'll have a good aggro deck.

RadicalOink I actually considered the double damage stuff but wasn't sure. Thanks for the recommendation, I have a mono red unpleasant hugs Zurzoth, Chaos Rider deck where I have cards like Dictate of the Twin Gods and Fiery Emancipation and they've quickly become some of my favourite cards! Fiery Emancipation is hilariously amazing and yeah the added rock damage would be awesome. I might have to make room for it.
