Flameshadow Conjuring Discussion
2 days ago
That concern about Flameshadow Conjuring (the extra mana and high cmc creatures) actually came to my mind after suggesting it. In reality it is 2 extra mana since you need to activate Brion so I could see it being tough to pull off. As far as Rionya goes though, she is a blast. I actually have a whole deck built around her and it is super fun.
As far as cut's go, that is tough. This list is pretty tight as is. In you description you mentioned difficulty getting Felidar Sovereign wins, so maybe that one? Otherwise, Malignus seems like it could have a pretty low floor at times.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor, Emeria Shepherd is too slow. If I don't have a Plains to play the turn it comes in, I lose SO much tempo. If it were to revive something upon entry, it might have earned a spot, but it used to be in the deck, and I was always underwhelmed when I played it. Flameshadow Conjuring has been in this list before, but I always found that extra mana to be a little lacking. However, since the deck has become more mana efficient, then it might qualify for a spot again. What would you suggest to take out? Now Rionya, Fire Dancer looks like some straight GAS. I am going to find a spot for this and hope that it's worth it. Although I will say, her and Flameshadow Conjuring might be competing for the same spot since they have similar effects.

Have you considered Emeria Shepherd? It's great recursion and not a bad fling target itself. Also, Flameshadow Conjuring or Rionya, Fire Dancer could be fun. They let you get an attack in and then you can fling the token before the end of turn/combat.

Suggestions: 1. The Deck of Many Things is one of the worst card ever so I'd put anything in its spot 2. Because this is a tribal deck I would switch Flameshadow Conjuring with Molten Echoes it basically does the same thing for the same CMC but you don't have to invest more mana into it going forward.

Nightmare Shepherd is one of the best as it adds a lot of functionality with no upfront cost and allows you to exploit sacrifice mechanics like evoke. Creating token clones with etb/ltb can easily become overpowered, especially when combined with populate. In fact I built a great ETB Roon EDH deck around it using cards like Yosei, the Morning Star, Protean Hulk and Wayfaring Temples that clone themselves. Token clone generation is amazing because it's essentially ETB blinking as a side effect. You have some cards that do it already listed under abuse but I think the mechanic is good enough and has enough viable cards that it might be worth making a new category for it.

Also some other blink type cards:
Blink-Yorion, Sky Nomad Conditional bounce- Cunning Evasion ETB clone- Wall of Stolen Identity Graveyard blink- Cauldron of Souls, Twilight Shepherd, Adarkar Valkyrie ETB Abuse- Jalira, Master Polymorphist, Proteus Staff, Master Transmuter. Listing the ones that specifically clone or blink artifacts in their own group might be helpful too.

Scourge of Valkas is a great dragon to copy or as a payoff for the dragons you create with Utvara Hellkite. It’s also a game ending combo with a kicked Rite of Replication which will do at least 180 damage. A kicked Rite is usually lethal with Terror of the Peaks too (125 damage) and a general good value card imo.

Hey DadHumanPraetor, iammute, and conthogib987. Thanks for all your suggestions, some of them are great. Also, sorry for such slow replies, it's been a while since I logged in to tapped out but I'm doing a few deck tweaks so now is the time to respond!
Some of the cards you guys suggested are actually already in the deck (e.g. Herald's Horn ) so I won't comment on those ones specifically. Some of the others are ones I've actually already tried in the deck previously but they ended up being cut. A prime example of that would be Flameshadow Conjuring - 4 CMC for the enchantment isn't bad, but overall the deck runs so lean on mana (being mono red) that it was oftentimes really difficult to find the extra 1 mana to make a token when I spend mana casting a dragon. Clearly this is sometimes a great card, but in playtesting with my local group it never worked as well as I had hoped.
I am definitely going to address the balance of card draw vs card advantage because this is becoming more and more important. I think things like Endless Atlas are great here so that's a definite for the maybeboard. I also take your point about things like Thrill of Possibility . Some of the cards in this current version are sub-optimal because I run 15 different EDH decks and occasionally I run out of staples and don't want to spend money on more copies! This is something to be addressed though.
Looking at the Magmaquake / Earthquake vs the other suggestions, I actually disagree here. Those two are mana intensive for sure, but they're also often very one-sided as pretty much all my creatures fly. Sarkhan's Unsealing is good for sweeping lots of small tokens or something, but oftentimes you need to beat something larger that 4 toughness.
Stay tuned for a bit of a deck tweak here!
