Electrolyze Discussion

HelixSnapHelix on Ruhan of the Fomori (Jeskai Control)

3 weeks ago

I just cut Pyroclasm and Electrolyze after some discussion with a duel commander discord. Since I haven't played in a while, I asked them what changes seem reasonable with the changed meta. They convinced me it's less of a Pyroclasm meta these days after I was talking about possibly adding Flame Sweep . We will see how that goes. They tried convincing me that Path to Exile was bad, but idk. I made my case for it and it came down to the card being a meta call. I play against a lot more g/w variants than what a blind meta would be. Replaced them with Mana Tithe and Chain Lightning .

As far as the utility lands, I've tried all of those. I ended up cutting them all because I was screwed over too many times with colorless mana. It's a pretty mana intensive deck. I liked Slayers' Stronghold the most out of the four suggested lands though. I've won a few games by untapping Ruhan with Minamo when they forgot it existed a few times though. Feels amazing.

Hey Kjartan I have been looking into Electrolyze but neglected to put it into the deck because of the 3 CMC, it would synergize with the deck well regardless but I just can’t make the space... thank you for the good suggestion :)

A couple Brazen Borrower would be great in here! It can be used as removal and is board wipe protection. Also makes kind of makes your mana curve a bit better. I'd cut a Vendilion Clique and a Wee Dragonauts to fit them in.

I would also consider cutting a Wizard's Retort and maybe an Electrolyze to play Remand . Early on, Remand is honestly a better counterspell than Counterspell in a tempo heavy deck like this one.

One Mutavault could be a good inclusion as an extra wizard/faerie that can activate itself to meet the requirements for Wizard's Lightning/Retort.

This feels good. Glory-Bound Initiate is a good pick. I'd look out for Electrolyze , Wrenn and Six and Liliana, the Last Hope picking off your creatures- if you can dodge those you should be good.

Remember there isn't anything stopping complete switchups in your removal/sideboard- I like swinging from packing burn ( Gonti's Machinations ), to ten hand disruption spells- keeping your opponents guessing is part of keeping budget lists working.

Unclaimed Territory and Caves of Koilos can help if you have land trouble, as can incidental scry- Read the Bones is popular in budget lists for that reason.

Past that, relax, play, have fun, and don't be scared to dedicate your entire sideboard to fighting 'that guy' at fnm.

Not really a fan of The Royal Scions in here, maybe there are better blue red cards like Keranos, God of Storms , Electrolyze , or even Izzet Charm or even Steam Augury

The deck is coming along, but needs some more work to be competitive. My suggestions: -3 Unclaimed Territory (too many noncreature spells this is actively bad in your deck) -1 Docent of Protection (too slow for Modern) -4 Lightning Stormkin (worse Stormchaser) -2x Warden of Evos Isle (slow and weak) -1x Bedlam Reveler (doesn't fit) -1x Thing in the Ice  Flip (doesn't fit) -2x Izzet Charm (super average meh card)

+2 Spirebluff Canal +4 Soul-Scar Mage +2 Grim Lavamancer +2 Archmage's Charm +1 Steam Vents +1 Electrolyze

That should speed up your deck and make it more consistent all at a low cost.

Hes fallen out of favor in modern but for awhile he was one of the most played cards in the format. Theres also Monastery Swiftspear but your list doesn't look like it would take full advantage of the swift spear theres Seasoned Pyromancer but hes pretty pricey. Another card that has fallen out of favor in the format is Electrolyze . Not that good in the current meta but I'm still a fan of it
