Garth of the Kiln

Legendary Creature- Human Wizard

Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, Garth of the Kiln gets +3/+0 until end of turn.

Whenever you draw a card, Garth of the Kiln gets +1/+0 until end of turn.


I don't know, I just thought having some sort of legendary Kiln Fiend would be cool. Make another legendary version of a nonlegendary creature.

Ooh Foul-Tongue Shriek sounds really interesting. I'll definitely be trying that one out in a future variant.

Lotus Petal is actually what was replaced by Arcum's Astrolabe . As much as I liked Lotus Petal for its potential explosiveness, it was highly inconsistent. If this were a t3 Glass Cannon deck like Kiln Fiend it would be Lotus Petal without a doubt. But for one like this ot just hurts the consistency too much.

For the same reason, I'd never run Outnumber over Skred . Even without Arcum's Astrolabe , the fact that it reads lands is just far superior because of consistency.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I can't wait to test your suggestion in a new variant. Seems fun as all crap.

The classic method is to run creatures like Kiln Fiend Blistercoil Weird alongside your Nivix Cyclops as your only creatures. Then, fill the rest of your deck with instants and sorceries like Mutagenic Growth and Assault Strobe , and try to beat the opponent in one attack.

How strict is the budget? And how casual?

You can make a pretty decent burn deck for around $40, if you try to keep it fast and low to the ground, by dropping things like Viashino Pyromancer and Guttersnipe , and adding Soul-Scar Mage and / or Monastery Swiftspear

An upside to playing the prowess 1-drops is it gives you reliable access to a cheap burn spell called Wild Slash which is very good if you can reliably turn it on. Especially alongside Kiln Fiend , that should be easy to do.

I'd also suggest dropping Volcanic Fallout in favour of Exquisite Firecraft , losing the instant speed can be a minor downside, however, with two in the deck, and it costing 3 mana anyway, Firecraft will work more like a finisher, hitting your opponent for 4 instead of 2, and possibly finishing them off. It is uncounterable with spell mastery, which should be pretty easy to turn on.

Also, with 20 lands, it might be worth considering Shard Volley , turn your extra lands into 4 damage.

Hi, and welcome to modern. Modern has competitive level pump decks and likely will for the foreseeable future, but they call for specific tools.

Infect uses the infect mechanic to double how well each pump spell works- Glistener Elf / Vines of Vastwood / Become Immense is lethal, and the rest of the deck tries to do that as fast and reliably as possible, dodging creatures and interaction.

There used to be somewhat more intereactive Kiln fiend/swiftspear decks operating under similar principals using Temur Battle Rage and Assault Strobe , however death's shadow (taking advantage of Street Wraith instead of manamorphose and abusing Stubborn Denial , wizards offering an extra set of lightning bolts, and thing in the ice offering a different style of control package broke the nieche into smaller parts.

A Dreadhorde Arcanist pump deck is likely viable, likely in an Arclight Phoenix shell, however unless you are investing in a bunch of fetchlands (at which point all colours are open, allowing splashes for hand Tainted Strike or Stubborn Denial ), I'd look at keeping it mono red. Brute Force , Gut Shot , Mutagenic Growth , Young Pyromancer , Kiln Fiend etc- there are a few lists out there that showcase the FNM winning form of it.
