Nissa, Incensed

Legendary Planeswalker - Nissa

Creatures you control get +2/+2 and have trample.

+2: Destroy target noncreature permanent. Exile the top two cards of your library. Until the end of your next turn, you may play those cards.

-1: Nissa, Incensed deals 3 damage either to each creature with flying or each creature without flying. Nissa, Incensed deals 3 damage to each player.

-10: Gain control of all lands until end of turn. Lands you control become 5/5 elemental creatures with trample and haste until end of turn.

6


+2: Based on Green's ability to targeted destroy everything but lands and creatures and red's ability to destroy target land.

-1: Earthquake/Magmaquake and Hurricane/Canopy Surge/Howling Gale effect

-10: Conquer combined with Insurrection, and Nissa, Who Shakes the World's ability

Nice deck! I really like the direction you're taking, it looks like we think alike in our strategies for mono red -- feel free to compare to my red Akroma build, I update it regularly: The Red Terror: Akroma's Manifesto

I noticed Akroma and Drakuseth have a few things in common; big CMC, massive presence on the battlefield, and the ability to one-shot opponents. So the emphasize on explosive ramp in red is definitely appreciated. Here's a few thoughts from my experience playing Akroma:

  • One-time mana benefits like Mana Geyser and Geosurge are strong counter bait (either for the spell or for the commander that comes with it) and so often just leave you with fewer cards in your hand for your trouble. Unless you have alternative wincon plans for that mana, I would focus on permanent-based mana sources. I would look to mana doublers like Gauntlet of Power or even Caged Sun since this improves your board position.

  • I like your inclusion of Bolt Bend and I recently added it to my deck as well - it's so sneaky. In that vein, you might think of adding Not of This World because people NEVER see it coming, and it's free if you're protecting your commander. Also, I applaud main-decking Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast because they almost always carry their weight in gold.

  • You might want to think about switching your land base to snow-covered mountains. This would give access to a couple of nice cards like Skred Extraplanar Lens and Mouth of Ronom -- Mouth and Skred are nice responses to Gaddock Teeg, which in my experience often shuts down our decks.

  • I'd think of including alternative win conditions; Insurrection is often a blow out, and I'd reiterate the strength of Etali, Primal Storm as though it might eat removal, that's one removal spell less that will target your commander. The value of Etali is definitely real. Even Pyrohemia could do wonders here.

  • Card draw in red....yeah. I'd suggest here Endless Atlas, Knollspine Dragon, and Reforge the Soul.

Sounds like a job for Insurrection.

It also kinda looks like you're trying to build a combo deck, what with the Congregation at Dawn and specific 3 creatures you want out, in which case Genesis Wave, Genesis Hydra, Lurking Predators, Kamahl's Druidic Vow, Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, See the Unwritten, Atla Palani, Nest Tender, Aid from the Cowl, Warp World, Divergent Transformations, Indomitable Creativity, Reality Scramble, and Genesis Storm are your options for cheating out multiple creatures off the top of your deck. You'd then want to shore up your tutors (not having blue hurts here, but black is king) to be able to consistently grab Congregation at Dawn.

The other option (or perhaps in addition to) is to go reanimator. Buried Alive+Balthor the Defiled, Champion of Stray Souls, All Hallow's Eve, Immortal Servitude, Pyrrhic Revival, or Rise of the Dark Realms.

Tutors can serve each plan equally, and it keeps the deck from doing the same thing every time, which is good for casual play. Also, if you throw in Footbottom Feast, Gravepurge, Forever Young, and/or Bone Harvest, Buried Alive interacts with Genesis Wave and friends.

Hey hey dawg!

There are just so many ways you could go about this! I have no idea if I'm doing the right thing here but here are a few ideas

Return of the Wildspeaker --> out -- I just dont think this card is very good in general. You dont have a ton of big creatures and +3/+3 isn't that exciting. Would rather play Harmonize which is unconditional.

Austere Command --> maybeboard -- This could be wrong, but I was looking for cards to cut and felt like an expensive wrath wasn't exactly where your deck wanted to be.

Keeper of Fables --> maybeboard -- I mean I get it that you can potentially draw up to 3 cards a turn, but its just so meh.

Greater Auramancy --> Maybeboard -- I was considering this cuz I think there's potential for a strong enchantments theme. Opted for Sterling Grove instead because it also tutors but this is here just as a consideration.

Archon of Absolution --> maybeboard -- Its on theme but I don't think its taxing enough right? maybe I'm crazy and this is exactly what you want cuz you can trigger goad with your commander?? but its 4 mana as well idk I just took it out cuz its floor is very low.

Kinjalli's Sunwing --> out -- Not sure why this card was in here to begin with, I mean you aren't granting mass haste or anything and the whole idea is you're goading people so few people are gonna have blockers, plus plenty of your is evasive. I think Thalia, Heretic Cathar feels this role very well already.

Urabrask the Hidden --> maybeboard -- This card is sweet but its 5 mana.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion --> maybeboard -- Elspeth feels a little out of place.

Beast Whisperer --> maybeboard -- Not into this as a reliable form of card draw.

Soltari Champion --> out -- I get the idea, you're trying to trigger goad, but isn't this card just bad? a 3 mana unblockable with battlecry doesn't seem particularly playable.

Archangel of Tithes --> maybeboard -- it was hard for me to cut this but in the end the triple white and its low impact made decide to ditch it and keep Windborn Muse instead.

Gruul War Chant --> out -- This card is just way too low impact for 4 mana.

Privileged Position --> maybeboard -- this like Greater Auramancy was an idea if you went more enchantment heavy but I ended up feeling 5 mana was just too steep.

Sunblast Angel --> Maybeboard -- I get the idea cuz everyone is attacking and tapped but meh.

Dryad Sophisticate --> out -- I don't think unblockable 2/1 are good enough even if they do trigger marisi. I like the idea of playing evasive hatebears or something. Maybe I'm just way off base with this deck haha

Arcane Signet --> out -- you don't need this, you're in green! Plus I want to try and add Collector Ouphe!

The Great Henge --> maybeboard -- this card is sweet and super pwoerful but you got a bunch of dorky 2/2s and stuff this thing is gonna routinely cost you like 7 mana and at that point wouldn't you just play Zendikar Resurgent? (I didn't put zendikar resurgent in though but if you want an effect like henge, I think I'd go with resurgent)

Druids' Repository --> main -- Idk! this seems cool and fun!! All your creatures become mana dorks cuz they'll be attacking anyway! Seems p good! Also if you make a bunch of 1/1 tokens with Tempt with Vengeance and Sylvan Offering you make a bunch of mana when they attack!

Skullclamp --> main -- I think because stuff like Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor plus having a bunch of stuff that might end up dying this'll draw you a lot of cards. Plus if you play Tempt with Vengeance and Sylvan Offering its bonkers!!

Insurrection --> main -- Its a sweet win condition!!

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor --> main -- in my view this exactly what you want to be doing!

ok wow this comment is getting long so I'm just gonna list the rest of the cards that I think should go in/out:

War's Toll -- in

Sterling Grove -- in

Sphere of Safety - in

Sylvan Offering - in

Enlightened Tutor - in

Harmonize - in

Goblin Spymaster - in

Tahngarth, First Mate - in (this one just seems fun :D totally get it if you decide not to)

Tempt with Vengeance - in

Teferi's Protection - in

Rishkar's Expertise - out

Throne of the God-Pharaoh - out

Grand Melee - maybe, for now I decided to just play war's toll but maybe neither are good enough

I've noticed you're not really doing the hatebear thing as much anymore? But if you decide to: Hushbringer and Collector Ouphe are rad!

Whew!! Can't wait to play against this in any shape or form! Hope at least some of these suggestions help!

It started as a budget version of this deck before it shifted to a more competitive meta. It also hasn’t been updated in a while. I’ve been running a few things not on this list like Bloodthirsty Blade and Dockside Extortionist. It also still has my Wishboard which I just net decked from here since I didn’t know what I might need. But like I said I almost never grabbed something that wasn’t Insurrection, so I thought why pay 2 more to be able to play it and just swapped it in.

I’ve actually disassembled my wish board because I found the only card I ever grabbed was Insurrection, so I just put it in the mainboard in place of Burning Wish. But basically anything that is situational but you wouldn’t want all the time is what you should include.

I have one suggestion. Find room for Insurrection.
