Hellrider Discussion

balu-86 on Marath EDH

In my oppinion, if you wish to increase the token focus, I'd cut the following cards: Collector Ouphe, Felidar Guardian, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Village Bell-Ringer, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Birthing Pod, Red Elemental Blast, evtl. Fauna Shaman

=> Remainders of the Kiki-Combo Package and anti-Control

I'd add the following cards

Doubling Season, Veil of Summer, Parallel Lives, Hour of Reckoning, (Grand Warlord Radha), Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Ohran Frostfang, Hellrider, Sylvan Reclamation, Enlightened Tutor

I also think you should add the following lands: Kessig Wolf Run, Contested Cliffs.

Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Boros Aggro Revisited

The Hero of Oxid Ridge is good (especially with the lieutenant), though I don't think it is better than the Spark Trooper imo because the latter works much better after a board wipe. I'd probably keep the cost of most of the deck at 3 mana and below. Though I don't think Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice would be a bad choice to top off the curve. Hellrider could also be a good top end here as it has haste and guarantees damage on the swing it comes in if it isn't dealt with. Hope this helps.

SaberTech on Torbran and his Fiendish Plan

2 months ago

I like the poke idea that this deck is going for, but I think that there are some parts of the deck that are a bit counter productive. I think that a number of the low-damage wrath effects will lose a lot of their impact as you move into the mid and late game, even with Torbran's boost, and even though cards like Pyroclasm will deal more damage to your opponents' creatures they are still dealing enough damage to kill a good number of your own utility creatures anyway. I think that there are other options to consider that would give you more choice and control over where damage is going.

Rolling Thunder and Violent Eruption give you a good amount of control and scale really well with Torbran out. Inferno Titan and Drakuseth, Maw of Flames can spread their damage around and are also large bodies that can help finish a game. Goblin Sharpshooter is another creature that can get pretty ridiculous with Torbran out, and Flameblade Angel might also be worth consideration as a deterrent.

There are some other options worth looking at to increase the "punisher" aspect of the deck. Circle of Flame, Harsh Mentor, Immolation Shaman, Rampaging Ferocidon and Hissing Iguanar are all possible ways of getting some extra damage in. If you end up running more creatures, Hellrider is a possible inclusion. And will all the damage flying around you might find that Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion might make a good addition, although Neheb is better with more X cost spells.

Anyway, just some ideas to think about. I'd like to see your opponents' faces when you drop both Mana Barbs and Torbran onto the board. That's not something most people would want to deal with.

Crow-Umbra on Awkward Eye Contact with Death

2 months ago

The deck has gone through a few different iterations, as I've tried out different elements that I like, especially since I hadn't really played this type aggro or reanimator strategy in the past.

I think what I currently have in mind for win-con lines for this deck:

I think I wanted to have some elements of reanimation, creature aggro, and group-slug. In one iteration of the deck, I had more token creators like Mogg War Marshal, Hanweir Garrison, New Krenko, and Noosegraf Mob, but cut them for yard-filling cards.

Halflingz on Queen Marchesa

Board wipes that seem "on theme" and white "ramp" to consider. Kaya's Wrath Fumigate Retaliate Austere Command Decree of Pain Martial Coup Merciless Eviction Descent of Dragons Angel of the Dire Hour Magister of Worth Sunblast Angel Boreas Charger Oreskos Explorer Surveyor's Scope Solemn Simulacrum Sword of the Animist Verge Rangers Smothering Tithe Sword of Feast and Famine Dowsing Dagger  Flip

Queen Marchesa doesn't have a clear single way to build so you have lots of options. However, I feel like said you want to play her like the Kween she is and create a royal court full of politicin' and group interaction to make all the boys whine. I don't think you want to discourgage people from taking the monarch from you, more encourage them to swing others IE: NO Ghostly Prisons, YES Teysa effects. Punish the ones who swing you only after the fact and reward the ones who swing others. There is a lot listed!

Politic theme links to Scryfall searches Monarch, Will of the Council, Council's Dilemma, Join Forces, Curses, Tempting offer, Goad

You will also want to get retake the throne each turn and lets face it, the Assasin's won't always get through Dauthi Embrace Dauthi Trapper Nether Shadow Nether Traitor Soltari Visionary Changeling Outcast Tormented Soul Break Through the Line Ferropede Gingerbrute Key to the City Whispersilk Cloak Trailblazer's Boots Zhang He, Wei General Yellow Scarves Cavalry Wei Night Raiders Wei Scout Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed Lu Bu, Master-at-Arms Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior Shadow Alley Denizen

NO SASKIA?!?!

Saskia the Unyielding should be in here instead of Hellrider. Mana cost be damned, she is an absolute house.

I appreciate the feedback! I don't really want the Hellrider because it doesn't really provide my opponent with a choice. In addition, I find myself not being super aggressive with attacking either, and some times I can't at all if I have Ensnaring Bridge or Meekstone out. I was thinking of an Erebos or Tainted Remedy but I'm not sure if I want something that stops me from gaining life. Exquisite Blood and the altar help keep me alive to torture a little longer. I also just discovered Demanding Dragon so I'm going to have to figure out what to switch out for it.

I always appreciate feedback and suggestions, especially since there isn't a keyword or string of words that I can search to find more choice cards.

Very cool. Maybe a Hellrider?? Other than that I'm pretty much with Epicuris. Oh and maybe any of the cards in black and or red that keep your opponent's from gaining life. Tainted Remedy Forsaken Wastes Erebos, God of the Dead and the new tibalt. Life gainers suck.
