zapyourtumor, Thanks for the vote of confidence! I do have some Eidolon of the Great Revel around here somewhere I think. I have always been on the fence about this card cause burn usually does enough damage on its own to the user without any help, but yes it does have its uses! Vexing Devil I feel is good because its one mana for four damage! And if it sticks on the field it's a force to be dealt with. Goblin Chainwhirler I just picked up a foil copy of and that is in the deck already, I'll add it to the list. Personally I'd really like to get the Bonecrusher Giants as its a burn spell, red devotion, and a big creature all in one card. I appreciate the comments and suggestions! Thanks!

I like the deck, but I'm not sure how good Figure of Destiny and Vexing Devil are. The former always only gives 1 devotion even when it's been upgraded a ton while the latter is usually sacrificed so it doesn't count towards devotion.

Have you considered Eidolon of the Great Revel? It hurts you a lot too so I'm not sure of it here (it would definitely suck against faster decks like burn) but I feel like it would be a great help most of the time. Goblin Wardriver might be okay as well. If only Reckless Bushwhacker had RRR cost it would be great with burning tree. Goblin Chainwhirler may be a decent sideboard card since there are a lot of x/1 creatures nowadays.

I mean this deck already seems pretty built around it, synergizes well with Eidolon of the Great Revel.

By the way, have you found that all the lifelinking vampires sometimes doesn't work well with Death's Shadow? Since you have 12 vampires and 4 burn spells that gain you life I'm wondering if that might be too many for DS to work well. I feel like you could cut Sovereign's Bite for Scourge.

t5686monroe on Budget Burn - Chandra's Incinerator

1 month ago

Barbarian_Sun_Pope i agree that the first stage wouldn't be a huge concern, the last stage seems a bit redundant w Chandra's Incinerator but i like the inclusion of some card draw in the deck.

coleslaughter the land count is down to prevent flooding since fetch and shock lands just wouldn't make budget, but Runaway Steam-Kin seems like a great inclusion.

i'd love to bring both those cards into the deck i'm just not sure what to take out. rn i'm thinking of dropping Shard Volley for The Flame of Keld and pushing Eidolon of the Great Revel to the sideboard to make room for Runaway Steam-Kin in the maindeck. maybe dropping Searing Blood out of the build completely ?

Ouroboros_47 on Mono-Red Burn

Eidolon of the Great Revel is a great burn card. Are you set on being mono-red? Adding white gives you Boros Charm and Lightning Helix along with great sideboard options.

zapyourtumor on Fire & Lightning it burns, oh my!

Adding some creatures for a mix of some aggro with the burn is usually good (e.g. Monastery Swiftspear ). Eidolon of the Great Revel is also a powerhouse. Browbeat is bad, if you want to run draw Light Up the Stage is much better, or maybe Magmatic Insight to get rid of your dead lands.

Incinerate and Lightning Strike suck, I'd go up to 4x Searing Blaze and 4x Rift Bolt instead.

For the sideboard, Red Elemental Blast (and Pyroblast ) are both not legal in modern. Chain Reaction is two expensive and late game, Curse of the Pierced Heart is way too slow and Reverberate is usually not great either. I'm not too well versed in burn sideboards so I won't give any suggestions here -- you can probably find plenty of good suggestions on google.

PaulMuadDib on Grenzo Take the Wheel

Carnival of souls is quite the pick! I don't think I would run it, seems too easy to kill yourself. Though with enough aristocrats effects, I suppose you can get by.

In my grenzo deck I have about 20 non-creature cards. 2 of them inherently can be used in the graveyard and I decided on the others because I needed more interaction in the group I was playing against. Out of those ones which you aren't running and I don't see in your maybe pile or deck that you should consider are:
Thran Turbine essentially a sol ring that you can use only during your upkeep on grenzo
Elixir of Immortality a way to protect your graveyard from someone trying to exile it
Desecrated Tomb makes each successful grenzo activation net you a Bat
Tel-Jilad Stylus lets you do 2 things -- repeat an etb of a creature already out, protect a creature from being interacted with. You can even activate grenzo and then use this in response to avoid targeted destruction. I've used this thing on Faceless Butcher to save grenzo from boardwipes.
Dark Privilege lets you block most creatures with grenzo, use it as a sac outlet and increases his power and toughness by 1. It also avoids lots of targeted removal, though not the most popular boardwipes.
Songs of the Damned depending on where the game is, this can be worse than dark ritual or net you 10 mana.

I would additionally suggest giving Warp World a spin because it is some very good disruption, removes enchantments and lands. If you're lucky it can be a red timewalk due to bringing in the lands untapped.

A land you might want is Scorched Ruins . As far as you are concerned, once grenzo is out, this is like playing 2 lands for one. though there are obviously downsides.

My mana base consists of 36 lands and 12 creatures that produce mana, or in the case of Burnished Hart ramp you.
You have 6 out of the 12, and are running palladium myr which isn't a bad pick and I honestly forgot about it. The 5 which I haven't mentioned are Basal Thrull , Generator Servant , Treasure Nabber , Blood Vassal and Catalyst Elemental . With the exception of Nabber, they all replace themselves manawise due to generation 2 mana. I would avoid putting in manadorks that do not make 2 or more mana.

You might additionally want to consider Junktroller which lets you recur creatures or disrupts someone else's grave.

Since a grenzo deck usually does not cast that many spells, you can try throwing in some asymmetrical effects, such as Soot Imp or Eidolon of the Great Revel to leverage that, though with the direction your deck is currently in, that doesn't seem necessary.

Additionally Shrieking Mogg can be used both offensively and defensively. If you know it's on the bottom, you can tap down an opponent before their declare attackers step. If it's your turn, tap down their creatures during your declare attackers step and all of their blockers will be tapped. It also neatly fits into the goblin theme you already have present.

Tarnoduds on Torbran goes BRRR

6 months ago

Hey, I like your idea for this deck!

Cavalcade of Calamity and Raid Bombardment should be pretty sweet on this list. Also, I think Torbran is a good punish-enabler with cards like Pyrostatic Pillar , Eidolon of the Great Revel (lets be honest, you dont want this deck to go suuuuper long, and nowadays, people plays with lots of spells with CMC under 3) and Circle of Flame .

Also, if you play with Impact Tremors you can have damage dealt (x3!) for every goblin and demon your token generators can create.
