Suns_Champion on Wait for the kicker - Hallar, the Firefletcher

1 week ago

Okay buddy here we go!

I think we need to fix a lot of things here. Ramp is an easy fix, we'll get some more instant/sorceries that get lands because they are safest. Then we'll work on getting more counters on Hallar in more efficient ways. We'll also swap out some of your kicker spells for other kicker spells that do better things.

Cards to look at:

Cards to maybe cut

So with all that I hope you're mana will be more consistant and your draw will be more powerful, then you'll be able to dump more counters on Hallar and snipe some wins. If not, your kicker spells will have more impact because they'll draw or remove or ramp. Focus on the 2cmc ramp cards, then swap out the kicker spells, then get those draw cards in there.

Here's a Deck you can also look at

Hi,

I guess you have already seen the new boros commander Haktos the Unscarred ? I'm currently thinking about building him, and I'd love to hear your opinion about him.

My thoughts for now are the following:

Adding Tajic, Legion's Edge , The Wanderer and Loyal Unicorn and some damage based sweepers such as Hour of Devastation seems a possible route to go because this way, not only Achilles himself, but your other creatures are as well protected grom your own boardwipes. Possible ways to pump him are Hero's Blade and Obsidian Battle-Axe because their etb-triggers don't target. To have them when he enters the battlefield, Steelshaper's Gift and Open the Armory seem useful. Another thing I am considering are "global" protection spells as they don't target and thus ignore his protection.

I'm not sure if the deck should include more equipment or enchantment, but if, then these natirally would have to spread evenly among cmc 2, 3 and 4.

I'll try to upload a first draft of a list later. If you'd like to see it, I'd be happy to link you there.

Until then: Best regards

Haurent on U/R Standard Mill, budget

4 weeks ago

Hey there! I know this deck is kinda old since ixalan rotated out of standard, but I can help you with this R/U mill vision you have. So first of all if your boyfriend is playing a deck around Approach of the Second Sun something you wanna have around are counterspells. Now we have counterspells that mill in Thought Collapse and Didn't Say Please . Splashing red you also have Ionize . Following that, R/U decks usually have good mechanics to draw cards, which is an excellent method to mill down an opponent with Sphinx's Tutelage , which should be accompanied with several card draw engines. Cards like Radical Idea , Chemister's Insight and even cycling cards of your own like Censor or Hieroglyphic Illumination could work. Mill usually struggles with board pressence, so cards like Sweltering Suns , Hour of Devastation work okay as boardwipes. If you want to add some pressence of your own cards like Electrostatic Field , Crackling Drake , Murmuring Mystic or Guttersnipe can lend you a hand as either blockers or as a way to put pressure on the opponent.

Regarding sideboard, Mill struggles A LOT against aggro, so early-game blockers, boardwipes and counterspells to disrupt tempo are your best ally.

If you have other questions feel free to contact me, I play a lot of mill and everyone hates me for it, but I enjoy it.

the__odysseus Thanks for the ideas! Definity trying out Fabled Passage when the meta slows down. Right no you need to be react early and often since lots of people are playing aggressive decks or decks where you need to have mana open early e.g Mono-Red and Felidar combo. When the meta becomes slower I could definitely see running some fabled passage. I completely forgot about Wandering Fumarole probably going to add a few. Don't know what to cut, maybe the Spirebluff Canal ?

I haven't had a problem with an overtaxed graveyard or Oko. Dig Through Time can get the deck out of tight spots as it can find specific cards were raw card advantage doesn't really work as well. I haven't really had a clash with Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip either since dig is mostly being resolved late anyways after he has flipped. I haven't really come to a spot were Oko, Thief of Crowns also hasn't been a problem. 6 planeswalker kill spells in the 75 with Bedevil and Vraska's Contempt + Thoughtseize + late game Drown in the Loch can counter it. When I'm playing against an oko deck I'm significantly mulfore worried about Wicked Wolf than Oko 90% of the time.

I decide not to play Anger of the Gods since it was too much on the mana. Double red by turn 3 is really hard since red is only really a splash for Kolaghan's Command , Bedevil and Fiery Impulse . All of which need only one symbol and I only have 10 red in the mana base right now and it has significantly better than I thought it was going to be. I'm only playing the Hour of Devastation in its good against Eldrazi and late-game double red isn't so bad. If dredge gets a new card printed or Rally decks come back could probably add it.

I mainly just added Goblin Rabblemaster to kill Mono-Green Devo and Cat quickly but since they go banned or significantly nerfed at this point I could see adding Bolas or Liliana, Chandra seems a bit too expensive mana wise against control as a grind piece. Will probably test out those walkers with stuff like Search for Azcanta  Flip

I think these could be some good cuts

Wakening Sun's Avatar because it's crazy expensive and I think you would do better with a damage board wipe. Plus it won't trigger if you cast it with your general. Arcbond , Hour of Devastation , and Savage Twister were some that I found that could fit well in this deck.

Raging Regisaur because it looked pretty weak compared to some of your other dinos. I feel like if I was playing this deck and I drew this or had the option to cast it from the deck it would be lackluster, might even prefer to draw a land.

Dinosaur Stampede because you've already got scary Dino's and it looks like you could really use more land.

And I would also pull Ashnod's Altar and Goblin Bombardment because I wouldn't really want to sacrifice any dino's. I would take both out and add in land, or maybe some other artifact ramp, idk what though.

That would put your land count at 37 which is a waaaay better draw rate for lands. All that being said this deck looks cool as shit. I like the cards you have in here for untapping your general to reuse his ability +1.
