4 Tarfire feels like a huge mistake. 1 is definitely fine, maybe even two, but sacrificing 1/3 of the power level of Lightning Bolt to achieve delirium faster/buff goyf +1/+1 isn't worth it. You shouldn't have a problem achieving delirium quickly in this build anyways with DRC and bauble. I recommend cutting all but 1 Tarfire for 4 bolt. 1-2 Abrupt Decay can help round out the removal suite a bit too.

I do love Tracker, but I think there is a very strong case to be made here of cutting Tracker, Grist, Murderous Rider and Ghor-Clan Rampager for Lurrus of the Dream-Den as companion. It lets you grind a lot harder in the late game, and also lets you recur baubles.

1 Seal of Fire might also be worth it, similar to tarfire for that extra card type. It becomes especially good with Lurrus.

Scourge of the Skyclaves is another strong creature that looks like it would be at home here, also really good with TBR. Scavenging Ooze could be a 1 of to get with Traverse, and maybe also 1 Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger for a mid-late game threat or an easy way to get a creature into the yard (especially if you go Lurrus and cut Ghor). It isn't really a nonbo with delirium either since you can fill the yard so fast.

A full 8 discard seems a little overkill to me right now, I think you could cut 1-2 IoK and go down to 6-7.


The sideboard looks a little all over the place right now (Back to Nature? wat) but I do like some of the traverse targets Voidwalker/Ouphe/Revoker. 1 of Tourach, Dread Cantor can be pretty good to tutor vs UWx, 4c blink, etc since it's immune to Solitude and Prismatic.

I'm not sure how well Goblin Guide and Blood Moon work together, as it can help your opponent fetch for basics before the Moon drops, and help them dig out of a bad situation after it's in play.

It feels like a few Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger would have a good home here.

Definitely a cool card. Some suggestions:

I like how you're already leveraging the enchantment with grave dumping like Commune and some evoke/undying creatures, but I think you could be running even more creatures like this.

Shriekmaw is so funny. I definitely think you should run some, since you don't really have any removal. For 2 mana, you can return like 2 more shriekmaws from your grave to blow up three creatures and then get some 3/2 bodies.

For the sideboard, Endurance would be very strong grave hate, a lot better than bojuka bog. The price tag definitely isn't ideal though.

Satyr Wayfinder is a great way to dump cards into the graveyard on a creature body. It's a shame it only gets lands, but it still feels very strong here.

Splinterfright is another self mill threat similar to Nyx Weaver but it gets fat as hell.

You'd have to splash red, but casting a Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger for 2 and then getting one back from the grave for free sounds super cool.

Fulminator Mage for tron? Or even for non tron because wiping opponents lands is nice.

Eternal Witness can get back stuff.

Valki, God of Deceit

Legendary Creature - God

Whenever ~ deals combat damage to a player, choose target creature in an opponent's graveyard. ~ becomes a copy of that creature except its name is ~, it’s legendary in addition to its other types and has this ability.

1/2

Ljuga, Cloak of Lies

Legendary Artifact - Equipment

Equipped creature is unblockable.

Whenever equipped creature deals combat damage to an opponent, each opponent reveals their hand. For each opponent, choose a creature card in that player's hand. Those players discard those cards.

Equip :


Thought process is that this is the "real" Valki since the one in the Kaldheim set ended up being Tibalt in disguise. Being the god of trickery/deceit/mischief means that he'd probably be dimir. Gave him some sort of shapeshift ability and made the back side an equipment that synergizes with the front side like the rest of the Kaldheim gods have. The wording on the back side isn't the best, I admit.

On our return to Theros earlier last year in Theros : Beyond Death, we met two of the elder giants that had been imprisoned by Klothys and the rest of the Theros gods. Create another of the elder giants that fits in next to Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath and Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger. You can't use the color white in it's color identity.

griffstick: It's one of these terrible cards that are pretty great once in a while.

Has anyone suggested Feldon of the Third Path, yet? Making an Impervious Greatwurm token to fling at someone's face seems pretty dope. Heart-Piercer Manticore is another good fling effect.

I did a quick search and found other fitting cards: Boldwyr Heavyweights, Cosmic Larva, Daemogoth Titan, Daemogoth Woe-Eater, Deep-Slumber Titan, Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Plague Reaver, Traxos, Scourge of Kroog

Are there any commonly-played indestructible threats in Pioneer right now? Going down a creature to exile, especially only at sorcery speed, hurts a lot.

As far as the best Lurrus decks: Burn and rakdos pyromancer would be the way to go if that's what you're looking for. With rats, there's not really a good payoff. Ideally, whatever you recur off of Lurrus should either be immediate value or an immediate threat; as it sits, Pack Rat is the only threatening card, and (usually) will require extra mana to get to the point where it's scary.

Metallic Mimic is also pretty medium. Rakdos gets to recur things like Young Pyromancer and Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, and burn gets a lot of hasty creatures or Eidolon, etc. It's a good point of comparison.

More specifically about Pack Rat - what makes the card somewhat powerful is that it does NOT depend on other cards being on the field to be good, so going all-in on rats reduces your overall card quality to try to power up a card that is already threatening on its own.

Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger from your command zone is the best followup after a Worldfire. If you're going any kind of competitive with it, that's probably the way, using some Mizzix's Mastery +Entomb combination. I'm not sure it's worth the Ad Nauseamrisks, but I have friends who really want to try and make it work.
