Imprint - When Invader Parasite enters the battlefield, exile target land. Whenever a land with the same name as the exiled card enters the battlefield under an opponent's control, Invader Parasite deals 2 damage to that player.

This deck is meant to be a boros control style deck with empahsis on canceling out damage that occurs to you during your own turn and punishing players for putting lands down or otherwise tapping them.

Personal Sanctuary + Manabarbs was the original combo this deck was considered around in a version I made for modern games using Zo-Zu the Punisher and other cards like Invader Parasite while destroying lands to force people to play more. I want to try and push this to a more consistent pull of the enchantments above or other abilities like those where you can't take damage on your own turn.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

2 years ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

I had a Casual Mono-Red Land Destruction deck that used many of these same cards and combo'd them with Strip Mine.

I'm not sure if Strip Mine will fly in your playgroup as it's not legal in many formats at all, but it's a devastating combo with Boom / Bust since you can sac it in response after it's targeted but before it's destroyed. 2 mana for 2 destroyed lands. Pretty nice.

It's a bit pricey of a drop, but if you want to keep Raze and Tremble then I'd definitely invest in at least a couple Crucible of Worlds. You could get away with pretty cheap cards in Mono-Red Land destro. for the most part, but that's one that combos remarkably well with a lot of the cards which require you to destroy your own lands. Then you could also get away with running cards like Impending Disaster to keep the land pressure on.

Beyond that, I see no reason not to run 4x Molten Rain instead of 4x Stone Rain, just a little added potential benefit at no mana cost. Also, I think that 2x Invader Parasite (another card I ran in my Casual deck) instead of 2x Keldon Halberdier would be a solid call. Far better use of 5 mana in my opinion, and the Parasite keeps playing off the Land Destruction theme.

Crack the Earth can make for an annoying Turn 1 play, and Dingus Eggs can move the game along even when all you're doing is eating lands. Magnivore was on my Sideboard, but he pairs extremely well with all of the Land Destruction spells.

I hope at least one or two of these suggestions helps ya along!

Invader Parasite is an awesome recommendation! It is definitely a better Ogre Arsonist I would rather use Goblin Settler over either since it is one mana less, but it is a little out of my price range. I thought about having a artifact destruction creature like Irreverent Revelers or Ingot Chewer, but I would rather just put in another artifact destruction spell like By Force. I think it has more value and its immediate. Bogardan Hellkite and Cavalier of Flame are a bit more mana intensive and I focused on actual card draw in this deck rather than rummaging. I have been debating Flametongue Kavu from the beginning but am having a hard time thinking of what to substitute it for.

Love the deck! Have you considered Invader Parasite over Ogre Arsonist ? I like the exile as my meta has several Muldrotha, Windgrace, and Gitrog decks running around, and the damage is occasionally useful. Irreverent Revelers , Cavalier of Flame , Flametongue Kavu , and Bogardan Hellkite might be up your alley as well!

I feel like you'd be better off with less pingers (tap for damage creatures) and more punishing triggered effects/etb effects on creatures.

Akoum Hellkite, Aria of Flame, Ash Zealot, Bomb Squad, Flameblade Angel (each time your dealt damage by any source with your commander on the ground, it deals 3 damage to that sources commander), Goblin Sharpshooter, Hellrider (same deal as Flameblade but attacking), Invader Parasite, Karplusan Minotaur, Leyline of Lightning, Mindsparker, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Repercussion (works even better since you control the source of damage), Satyr Firedancer (try it with damage based field wipes and you might just clear the table), Stalking Vengeance, Tephraderm, Mondronen Shaman  Flip, Tunnel Ignus, Warstorm Surge
