Orim's Chant classic isochron scepter piece. Glarecaster not only fogs but also redirects the damage back at another target. As far as I know, it will redirect all instances of simultaneous combat damage. This is a brilliant hidden gem.

That's true- I hadn't given much thought into how expensive the ability on Glarecaster is, just his personal casting cost. I think I'll drop him for the Vanquisher's Banner to offer me some more card draw, as well.

Yeah, I agree - this looks like a super fun thematic deck and like it also works :) nice one!

Definitely agreed with the land and mana-curve. 3.78 is a high average, and making land drops is so key. Another I'd consider removing for its cost is Glarecaster . It's fun as a bird tribal deterrent, but so pricey that I wonder how often it'll be holding you back from playing spells so it can remain a threat for the go around the table.

Nice work!

While I agree that you can't evaluate planeswalkers based on their ultimates, it is worth noting her ultimate costs 9, and her starting loyalty is 4--even with Doubling Season, you can't ultimate her on the first turn she is dropped.

Decent card, and will probably be pretty scary to play against in limited limited, but I'm not overly enthused. Granted, I really don't like planeswalkers as a card type, and will be the first to admit my bias taints my opinion.

dbpunk - it says "Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player." There are still some risks--if your opponent uses Glarecaster or the like on your creature they can force you to lose the game. But those kinds of effects are not commonly used.

Oeselbroesel on A Boros deck that doesn't attack? (RW Combo)

@Mal_Mutation: The Coalhauler Swine was one of the cards that started this combo deck, so it's really more of a pet card of mine. Might not be in there for ever if I have to make this deck more resilient.

@AlmightyTentacle: Glarecaster does seem like a great fit, but as you said he is very mana heavy. If WotC ever prints something cheaper I'll take it.

@squirlfood: Thank you! Shaman en-Kor is a fantastic card I'll definitely include! To redirect any damage dealt to a creature gives you the chance to save other peoples creatures and play the political game that makes EDH so fun! Inquisitor's Flail is combat damage only though and I don't see a lot of that. Damage doublers like Furnace of Rath a quite the double edged sword. If I have proper protection it's all good, but if not they make you a target in order to remove the card.

@PurePazaak: Hell yeah, that would be amazing. If they ever print an suitable general in RWG Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is the first card to go into the deck! Too bad we just got a Naya general that doesn't help this deck...

@LeoSushi: I see your point very nice combo, but I really try to avoid combat as much as possible with this deck and so far it has been a good strategy! Scroll Rack will find a place in there, just not sure yet where.

Thank you all for the suggestions!
