Electrickery

Instant

Electrickery deals 1 damage to target creature you don't control.

Overload (You may cast this spell for its overload cost. If you do, change its text by replacing all instances of "target" with "each.")

Gidgetimer on Uncle Istvan

The rules for deathtouch means that any damage from a source with deathtouch is considered lethal damage. Since Uncle Istvan prevents all damage from creatures, damage from a creature with deathtouch is prevented and he will not die. If you give a spell deathtouch (as Judith, Carnage Connoisseur does) the rules for deathtouch still apply. So he will die to an Electrickery with deathtouch.

Icbrgr totally missed your comment, and honestly Electrickery has been a card that keeps coming to mind as the instant speed nature of it seems great, im not sure which of the aoe effects currently in the list id take out for them(probably just the End the Festivities)

Hey. Funny enough, I've been working on this archetype for a while now. Excited for the new convoke cards. I'm not here to tell you how to build your deck, but I do wanna share some of my experience with you.

I've tried a ton of different versions, spanning all 5 colors. At the core of every single version is 4 Field Surgeon 4 Stonybrook Schoolmaster. Beyond that, it's kinda fair game. I started out in green builds with stuff like Jaspera Sentinel and Sprout Swarm and whatnot, but those builds never performed that well for me. You'd think they would, but it just never felt like what the deck needed. When you build around Field Surgeon and Schoolmaster, what you need from there is redundancy and ways to stabilize, not necessarily ways to go even wider. At least, that was my conclusion. To that end, I would highly highly recommend Samite Herbalist and Veteran Armorer. You kinda have herbalist subbed out for Judge of currents, which is fine too, but I really value the scry from herbalist. Especially early game. If you stumble at getting on the board early, the deck can look kind of pathetic to be totally honest lmao. Oh, and Veteran Armorer just does so much work at preserving your board. Completely frees you up from worrying about Suffocating Fumes and Electrickery. Obsidian Acolyte is extremely important out of the board. Among other things, it makes you a lot safer against Pestilence.

The two versions I've had the most success with (and neither of them are updated to account for new cards yet) are my Orzhov and Azorius builds. Especially with Meeting of the Minds existing now, I totally suspect that Azorius will be how I run it most often now. Azorius Surgeon and the tap sisters, if you care to take a look. I really need to update each, but they're both a lot of fun.

Also, don't be a coward, you gotta run at least one copy of ~~Ancestral Recall~~ Shared Discovery.

This all came out a bit more eclectically worded than I meant it too, but I'm excited to see somebody else working on this archetype. Godspeed.

Not sure if they're worth bothering with due to their slowness, but you can get a ton of damage out of Arc Mage and Inferno Titan if you're adding 2 to each ping for 1. Electrickery is pretty good value with your Commander in metas where people run smaller creatures, not sure how common that is, Electrickery also removes bigger stuff if you've got Deathtouch. For Arc and Electrickery I would replace a variation of Prodigal Sorcerer, and for the Titan I would think about switching out the Frostwielder. Inferno Titan is a crazy card with your Commander, 9 extra damage whenever you swing is pretty silly for one card and your Commander.

It's also slow and clunky (and you can't cast it atm), but Endbringer's ability to untap itself is pretty sick even if you don't have much colourless, the ability to ping on each turn is not nothing. This would be a card to look at if you decide to run a bunch of utility lands that make colourless, a good first one to consider that makes colourless is Shivan Gorge, which can ping each opponent. Tower of the Magistrate can do weird things, you can target an opponent's creature too fwiw, removing equipment and messing with targeted effects. There is also the odd dual that can make colourless you could sneak in, Shivan Reef or Cascade Bluffs are good examples that enter untapped. There are also some good colourless mana rocks, Talisman of Creativity or Mind Stone or Thought Vessel, but I do appreciate that your deck is designed atm to play low MV spells (which don't need ramp as much), but ramp can be very good. The lands and ramp you could probably remove basics for, though I wouldn't lower your land count very much, I feel like 36 is a bit high for a deck with an average MV well under 3 but hardly absurd for a deck without much ramp. I'm still a bit blown away that I actually suggested Shivan Gorge. If you decide to run a bunch of colourless stuff, I could probably figure out something to pull for Endbringer.

Love this deck idea, hope some of ithese were helpful!

GameDragon111 on Budget Burn

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.

Tavoshel on Tortured Madness

I'm also trying to make a deck of that kind, and I have some ideas for the sideboard :

I don't see many cards that you would absolutely want to side out, except your 10 instants against bogles, so your sideboard should have creature destructions that handle hexproof : lightning bolt and dark withering can be swapped for more diabolic edicts/chainer's edicts, Fleshbag Marauder can integrate your toolbox and Crypt rats too. I prefer Electrickery to Nausea as it can be played at instant speed.

Tortured Existence lets you play some maindeck toolbox too and have one of some cards that can be maindecked in madness too : 1 Gurmag Angler for instance, 1 Insolent Neonate is not a toolbox card, but can still be maindecked and give more options

2021 saw MH2 give 5 new madness cards, namely Kitchen Imp and VOW introduced blood tokens as a new way to discard, 14 card in the right colors, but only Voldaren Epicure caught my attention, Blood Fountain has its uses but is too slow here.

Also, keep in mind that you cant target nimble mongoose with your muscle burst effects.

Vines of Vastwood > Rangers Guile IMO.

Electrickery = Sideboard
