Fires of Invention


Brefin on MagicalHacker - List of All Optimum Ramp

Been tussling with a Boros list, and the curious conundrum of Fires of Invention. It's very much like a Red Sorcery version of Wilderness Reclamation. Cast Fires off four lands, immediately follow up with another 4-drop spell. As later turns go on and both spells in a turn use no mana, this also frees up mana for various activated abilities.

Yeah, this is definitely a casual deck and I did mention it is a bit too slow for the format it is in, but unfortunately since the deck revolves around Manabarbs and Fires of Invention, there's not much wiggle room to lower the MV of the deck. I've considered replacing Burn Down the House and Hour of Devastation with cheaper removal (Flamebreak/Anger of the Gods), but I had a lot trouble with Tarmogorf and planeswalkers like Wrenn and Six. Do you have any suggestions?

I've had a Zedruu deck for years, and there's 2 important deck building things I've learned about her specifically:

1) Like an ordinary control deck, staying alive is the primary game plan. Pack more removal than normal, especially synergistic cards like Grasp of Fate that you can give away later. Incidental life gain is also really good; sometimes her life gain is more powerful than her card draw.

2) I only pack gifts that won't shut me down if I'm stuck with them: no Aggressive Mining which will just end up killing me when Zedruu is killed in response. Fires of Invention is a great card, especially when you give it to the Storm or Counterspell player. Statecraft is a good wall that keeps alpha strikes in check when you can threaten to hand it off. My favorite wincon, Delaying Shield, often puts people in a position where any attacks coming at me suddenly allow me to delete a player if I feel like it, as well as some other niche upsides.

Of course, symmetrical effects and Auras are some of your best picks since it doesn't matter who controls them.

Fires of Invention and its not even close. That card is so fucking fun and can do some really busted things if you have cards with expensive activated abilities so you can still use your lands every turn.

Me again<3 Kenny, lands really matter edh, full of utility lands. Wich one would u choose to run, if u had to. Experimental Frenzy pros: cast all u want from the top, cons: forget about ur hand and what u draw, looks like ure gonna have to destroy it eventually) VS Fires of Invention pros: all your lands are pretty much gonna stay untapped and almost everything is gonna be fre or very cheap. Cons: no instants, if u wanna get rid of it on ur own its troublesome zz) am i missing something? tell me wich one would u run :D

There definitely is a solid argument for Seedborn Muse the way there is a good argument for Fires of Invention. Apart from lots of mana for graveyard filling, it just allows us to use our mana on our turn to put down support pieces or hard-cast dragons, knowing that we'll still have plenty for our opponents' turns. I also have an extra copy of Seedborn Muse laying around, so I might try that out! They key is just figuring out where to fit it, because I'm in a pretty tuned place at the moment!

As for Brainstorm, I find it generally a pretty underwhelming card that just doesn't have a lot of impact in most cases in classic commander (cEDH is a different story). It can be good in decks where we care about manipulating the top-deck, but that's not really a thing here. It can also be good in storm decks that want low cmc spells, but that isn't really the case here either.


Unfortunately, if I let the trigger resolve so as to make Scion into Atarka, which I would have to do in order to attack with him, he would then be locked out from being made into a copy of Skittles until the next turn. On the other hand, I can definitely Reanimate Atarka and then attack, which I've absolutely done before to great effect. I can also hardcast either Atarka or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight if I have enough mana. I've also been pondering replacing Gisela with Sylvia Brightspear, who can give all my dragons this effect for three mana, and I may indeed try that out in the future!

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions!
