Light Up the Stage


Spectacle (You may cast this spell for its spectacle cost rather than its mana cost if an opponent lost life this turn.)

Exile the top two cards of your library. Until the end of your next turn, you may play those cards.

I wonder whether Embercleave could have a home here. Memnite might trump ornithopter as well since it doesn't rely on pump spells to do damage. Light Up the Stage to refuel? Also, Blinkmoth Nexus might be better here given that you really aren't trying the poison game - more damage.

Hey, I saw your deck a little while ago and then your post on enchantment removal. I had a deck that started like this {technically I got a Red Burn pre con and went from there) and later added white for the enchantment removal. You can find my link here: Naya Burn Pioneer List. It was a private deck so the description is really just notes to myself.

Basically it's a straight up burn list, whatever can deal the most face damage is in. I took out all the wizards because I didn't like having to have a creature out for Wizard's Lightning and splashed white for main deck Boros Charm and Green for Atarka's Command (mainly the deal 3 and buff creatures giving a double buff to prowess creatures but having main deck "Can't Gain Life" is nice too).

I like your deck though! Bonecrusher is a great card I just opted for Eidolon of the Great Revel for more face burn but I could see Slaying Fire dealing 4 easy in your list, mine perhaps not as much especially at 3 mana.

Main deck I reduced it to 2 mana and have the Light Up the Stage to keep going through the deck. Sideboard I have some 3 drops like Chandra which is amazing as you know and I put in Squee, Dubious Monarch for a more removal heavy deck where I can't just board out all my creatures. Phoenix Chick is decent, it could be upgraded but the flying is surprisingly still good evasion to get in that 1 damage for spectacle.

I'd be interested in your thoughts as it seems your sideboard covers all bases and the list seems well built. After a good deal of play testing I found that you can in fact out race some decks and just straight up not run certain removals. I think Greesefang is the quickest graveyard deck and still by T3 we can deal a good amount of face damage with still another turn after their deck goes off.

This deck looks really good! I see you have Light Up the Stage on your Maybeboard. I highly recommend putting that card in your main deck. I’ve found that it really helps me rip through my deck and get the cards I need to finish the game. Have fun with this one!

I took the deck to my local FNM two weeks in a row and had an overall record of 3 wins and 4 losses. Not bad for a budget deck!

Making the following changes:


Firebolt x 4 - Firebolt was solid but the flashback cost often felt too steep to be relevant.

Firebrand Archer x 4 - When Archer stayed on the board it was great. But, with only one toughness, it's quite frail.


Skewer the Critics x 4 - I'm already going hard on spectacle enablers for Light Up the Stage, so why not give Skewer a shot? :)

Thermo-Alchemist x 4 - Better survivability and spectacle synergy than the Archer.

Didn't see any mention of budget in the description, got you! Any $ per card? For example, Sensei's Divining Top is good on it's own, better with shuffle effects and best with Experimental frenzy (EF). I feel the only reason EF is useful to you is because you have no draw, thereby allowing you to use future sight without the handicap. I still feel it should be swapped out but I respect your decision. That being said, Top seriously makes EF worth it.

Elkin Bottle is not worth it IMO. Too much cost for what it does. Other options of draw include Skullclamp, Mask of Memory and Light Up the Stage are all good options for draw, particularly clamp. I would add about 2-4 more pieces of ramp, two of which being 2cmc (fire diamond/Arcane Signet and mindstone). You have a very high AVG CMC with little (particularly early) ramp to support it.

I like your build. We both took the traditional shell and made our tweaks in different directions. I added white for Lightning Helix and the sideboard support cards to deal with enchantments.

When I first say Bedlam Reveler I said WTF?! But then I thought about it and it is a clever card choice for the strategy. Will always cost 2, prowess is synergistic and it refills the empty hand efficiently.

Cursed Scroll I think is worth a main deck spot. Two copies. This is the most aggro of aggro decks. Your hand is usually empty by turn 2. This card gives the top deck draw go strategy 2 consistent COLORLESS damage a turn.

How is Light Up the Stage working out for you?

Bomat Courier awesome EDH card. Not sure about it's application in this strategy.

Light Up the Stage blatantly powerful but the listt has become focused and cluttered.

Vexing Devil genius. The list is heavy on artifacts but at its core it is a 1 mana 4 damage deck. I will find room for a playset.

Grim Lavamancer where to begin. Love this card. It's the creature version of Cursed Scroll. Both of these are squeezed into so many of my EDH decks. 2 damage did not fit the 4 damage theme. When I build a Legacy Burn list both of these cards will be main board.

Red fetch adds what to the strategy?
