Dictate of the Twin Gods

Enchantment

Flash

If a source would deal damage to a permanent or player, it deals double that damage to that permanent or player instead.

That's a neat idea! As your plan basically is creating lots of red tokens and having them deal damage. To make this more effective, you should consider including damage-increasers. Torbran, Thane of Red Fell and cards such as Dictate of the Twin Gods would allow you to maximize your damage, resulting in making your commander more impactful earlier in its growth.

For situations where the board is crowded, ways to transform your token creation into damage. Cards such as Impact Tremors, Electropotence, Raid Bombardment, Cavalcade of Calamity, Goblin Bombardment, Makeshift Munitions, Barrage of Expendables, Weaponize the Monsters and other similar cards seem very useful for that.

Street Urchin seems especially funny, btw.

Also, Kumano Faces Kakkazan  Flip and Kumano, Master Yamabushi could be worth a shot here.

Have you considered Dictate of the Twin Gods? It is one of the few damage doublers that is odd in cost.

GameDragon111 Thanks for the suggestions! I especially like Volcanic Fallout and Lightning Strike as additional budget alternatives.

My only hesitation with cards such as Dictate of the Twin Gods and Torbran, Thane of Red Fell is I would expect those to come down after I went through several burn spells already due to their high(er) CMC, and I'm not sure how much gas would be left in the tank to utilize them effectively. I do think they would be interesting though and likely just require a different playstyle than the one I was initially imagining. Thanks again for the suggestions!

This is a good theme. Some other burn cards are Shock, Volcanic Fallout, Electrickery, Lightning Strike, and Seismic Wave. All of these are less than 30 cents.

Increasing damage dealt by these is more expensive, but some of the cheaper cards are Dictate of the Twin Gods and Torbran, Thane of Red Fell.

Hope these help and I hope you enjoy making more decks.

Maybe Dictate of the Twin Gods? I don't know how often you can be protected from opponents, but it seems like it can work out well if you can get your Goads in. Cathar Crusade might be worth an eyeball too. Though you aren't producing that many tokens. Lastly Blackblade Reforged, Ring of Thune, Ring of Valkas, or even Armory of Iroas could have a spot if you're looking to beef up that power on Young Baeloth.

I would highly recommend adding Fiery Emancipation, since triple damage is dope sauce. Also, Boros Charm is a great card, and lets you combo out if you have a damage doubler and a card like Boros Reckoner out.

My first deck was built around Boros Reckoner, and used cards like Dictate of the Twin Gods, Blasphemous Act, and Boros Charm, so I love this!

Hey again! I just wanted to say I did know about the Blasphemous Act + Repercussion combo, and was able to fit it in comfortably! While I couldn’t find room for Seething Song, I did however find a way to combo Blasphemous Act + Repercussion with Dictate of the Twin Gods, so that way it doubles the damage twice (13 -> 26 to the creatures, then 26 -> 52 to the creature’s controller). And while I couldn’t afford Demonic Tutor, I did find a better replacement for Diabolic Tutor, being Profane Tutor. Basically a Demonic Tutor but you have to wait two turns. Oh and I also managed to add Chandra, Torch of Defiance in there as well, for more burn synergy and free .

If you’d like, you can also check out the mono- control deck I made based on a build my college friend had!

Gratuitous Violence, Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods, and Fiery Emancipation type effects are fun with Torbran. Underworld Breach is also a nice way to re-use some of your instants and sorceries for a turn. While this is pretty low to the ground, I'd still try to put more ramp in it. Arcane Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Fire Diamond, Worn Powerstone, and Thought Vessel are good options for mono-colored. Endless Atlas is also a good draw engine for mono-colored decks.
