Looks like a great build! Not that you have to change anything really, but if it were my deck I would make these swaps:

  • Winds of Change for Burning Earth.

  • Night's Whisper for Harvester of Souls.

  • Defense Grid for Conqueror's Galleon  Flip. Defense Grid may protect you from instant tricks and counterspells, but it protects your opponents from those things too.

  • Price of Glory for Syr Konrad, the Grim. Same as Defense Grid.

  • Wurmcoil Engine for Knollspine Dragon. Wurmcoil is generically decent, but I think you could do better.

  • Ophiomancer for Dictate of the Twin Gods. Similar to Wurmcoil, Ophiomancer is always decent but I think there are more impactful things you could use instead.

  • Sanguine Bond for Kederekt Parasite. I think Sanguine Bond will be dead in hand much of the time. Also, even if you are gaining a ton of life, Sanguine Bond only hits one opp at a time, and it is not boosted by damage doublers.

  • Silent Arbiter for Fellwar Stone. I think you have enough mass creature removal that you don't need Silent Arbiter. Also Silent Arbiter stops your opponents from hitting each other hard.

  • Koskun Falls for Talisman of Indulgence. Similar to Silent Arbiter. Koskun Falls is great, but it actually forces you to tap down one of your blockers, and you don't have a ton of creatures to spare. By late game, opponents could just pay the 2 per attacker.

  • Blood Moon for Outpost Siege (Khans mode). Blood Moon is strong but it turns off all your cool lands.

Sweet brew! I really like the idea of Chandra tribal. Not sure if these suggestions will gel with the deck but they crossed my mind while looking at your list: Sunbird's Invocation to help speed up board state and casting things, Tectonic Instability and Price of Glory for some additional land hate, and any of the double-damagers Gratuitous Violence, Dictate of the Twin Gods, or Furnace of Rath.

How do you find the deck to play against other decks?

"Hug It Out" ? "We love you to death" ?

Four colors means your build options are actually pretty diverse, tho group hug is always at least a sub-theme. I run a landfall deck with them, so Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Sakura-Tribe Scout, and landfall triggers in addition to group hug. Recently added Chulane, Teller of Tales for landfall but also more card draw.

If you go heavy on draw with group hug stuff like Temple Bell / Dictate of Kruphix / Well of Ideas but also cards like Rhystic Study and Consecrated Sphinx, you can potentially win out of nowhere with Psychosis Crawler and to a lesser extent Chasm Skulker.

If you want more group hug stuff, there's no end of enchantments (Aurification, Fight or Flight, Dissipation Field) and artifacts. (and you can put Zedruu the Greathearted in there!) Lots of new-ish group hug cards like Coveted Jewel that get passed around the table.

Lastly, since you're currently emphasizing 'attack them not me' cards like Edric and Gahjji, I'd consider Marisi, Breaker of the Coil and staple cards like Assault Suit. Obviously, Marisi is a little more aggressive / less group hug... If you want to go that route you could throw in Dictate of the Twin Gods or similar.

Happy brewing!

I haven't been able to test my Torbran deck in person yet but I'll give a few of the ideas that I had for my deck. My idea was to play stuff like Immolation Shaman , Harsh Mentor and Manabarbs to punish players for using their cards. I added Furnace of Rath and Dictate of the Twin Gods to make for some explosive turns. I like to make my decks a little more enchantment based because enchantment removal is a little less common in my meta. I also don't blame you if you don't like my tactics because my playgroup says I brew my decks with "Maximum Salt Levels." Feel free to check out my deck or send me a message if you have any other questions I might be able to answer. Good Luck!!

Cut: Repercussion , Jaya Ballard

Maybe cut: Archetype of Aggression , Hero of Bladehold , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath ,

Double check what Sun Titan can get. I suspect most of your CMC 3 or less things are instants or mana ramp that won't be destroyed in general.

Need to Add: Land Tax , Master Warcraft , Iroas, God of Victory , both scry lands,

Consider adding: Sphere of Safety , Celestial Mantle , Enlightened Tutor , Worship , Sword of the Animist

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell is my favorite deck right now. I've found it very hard to keep him out, as I run more 'all creatures' damage. He's also super hungry for mana.

I like to run Pyrohemia and Sword of Fire and Ice / Sword of Sinew and Steel to protect him. My favorite play ever with Torbran is having him, Repercussion , and Pyrohemia out. Paying a red to do 3 damage to each opposing creature and 5 damage to each opponent for each creature they control is nasty, and you only do 1 damage to you and your creatures each time. Those are the kinda things that make this deck so fun, it's just not very consistent. Maybe you've had better luck?

Have you considered Extraplanar Lens and running Snow-Covered Mountain ?

I've had good luck with Embermaw Hellion . Having another source of additive damage has been valuable on multiple occasions, but I go heavy into the doubling effects too with Furnace of Rath and Dictate of the Twin Gods .

I didn't know about Immolation Shaman ! My playgroup wants to punch me in the face when I play Harsh Mentor , I didn't know he had a lizard brother!

Today is a good day.

I definitely expected the first incarnation of this deck to play more as burn and was surprised by the stax-y vibe it has in practice.

I took a pretty hard turn from single target spells like Lightning Bolt . I haven't run into too many hard choices between hitting everything or keeping my board, but I run less creatures. There have definitely been times I've /wanted/ to have a single target spell.

Anywho, awesome deck and I hope it does well for you. I'm definitely going to see what cards I could see playing from yours that I'm not in my own.

Just know that using Dictate of the Twin Gods will allow them to deal double damage to you. Gratuitous Violence is only your creatures.

Hey Bobs_Army - I am actually gonna add Dictate of the Twin Gods I think. The flash speed after no blockers are declared seems so much fun
