Stardragon on Feisty Gruul Mother

2 weeks ago

Crucible of Fire, Obelisk of Urd,Vanquisher's Banner or Jugan, the Rising Star to buff your dragons and give you more card draw, Gruul War Chant or Goblin War Drums to give them even more evasion Purphoros, God of the Forge, Impact Tremors and Warstorm Surge for more ETB Burning, Balefire Dragon for massive field clearing potential (the bigger it get the damage it to the field) Moonveil Dragon for a field firebreathing effect, Dragon Broodmother for big tokens, while not dragons Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion and Neheb, the Eternal both ramp you very well, Ryusei, the Falling Star, Star of Extinction, Savage Twister, Starstorm and Blasphemous Act for board wipes. Red rituals like Pyretic Ritual, Seething Song, Mana Geyser or Battle Hymn quick mana and Braid of Fire for steady ever increasing mana. Can't go wrong with the Bird duo of Birds of Paradise and Gilded Goose for mana nor is Archetype of Endurance bad for protection Gratuitous Violence and Fiendish Duo are both one sided Furnace of Rath. Fervor or Fires of Yavimaya make dragons hasty, and Glorybringer and Combat Celebrant can be massive boon and if you Seedborn Muse you can alway have them untapped as exerted creatures only don't untapp during your phase but since seedborn untaps during opponents turns they also untap so you can get 4 free damage and an extra combat step ever turn. Savage Beating + Spellbinder can give free extra combat and if you use this combo the entwine also happens so you get both Savage Beating's effect's each time it goes off.

Beebles on Hit Me Baby! | Akiri Damage Ricochet | V-AFR

Hey king-saproling,

I’m going to test Embermaw Hellion as a similar effect to Gratuitous Violence. Next to a combo piece it’s also a creature with evasion that can be equipped to trigger Akiri.

Justice and Deathmaw Spinner I’m going to leave on the maybe bord for now, as they are kind of worse versions of cards already in the deck. And I don’t want to overburden the deck with combo pieces that do nothing without their counterparts. I might still find a spot for Shifting Shadow later :).

Thanks for stopping by king-saproling! Will look at your list soon. I like Justice and Shifting Shadow but I don’t understand the relevance of Gratuitous Violence. Is it because of the combo with an indestructible Boros Reckoner?

Frilled Deathspitter seems more at home in Pyrohemia-type decks. Or is there a synergy I’m glancing over?

Thanks again!

Great minds think alike! Here's my list with essentially the same strategy in mind, if you care to take a look:

You might consider these: Justice, Gratuitous Violence, Frilled Deathspitter, Shifting Shadow

JPax on Dirty Obosh and the boys

Thank you, king-saproling. This would make a great replacement for Polluted Bonds , as Polluted Bonds causes life loss instead of damage and doesn't result in any doubling. Gratuitous Violence acts as a great backup for Obosh, the Preypiercer or as yet another multiplier to synergize with the combos in this deck. I'll update the mana base to reflect the change.
