Lightning Bolt


Lightning Bolt deals 3 damage to any target (creature, player, planeswalker or battle).

zapyourtumor on B/R Deathtouch Destruction

Sudden Spoiling and Hero's Downfall are not playable modern cards, the removal has to be more efficient than that. Staple BR removal options would be 3-4 Lightning Bolt 2-4 Fatal Push 1-2 Molten Collapse 0-1 Angrath's Rampage. I'd also cut the Blightning.

Vampire of the Dire Moon kinda boring generic 1 drop. I assume Tinybones, the Pickpocket is way out of your budget, the cards not super great in here anyways.

Hooded Blightfang is honestly not the best card but I mean if you're playing deathtouch tribal then you should probably play it. Also interesting you chose BR because most deathtouch decks I see are BG and use Fynn, the Fangbearer. Green also gives you some better 1 drop deathtouchers like Gnarlwood Dryad and Narnam Renegade, and also a 2 drop Chevill, Bane of Monsters. Also 3 drop Glissa Sunslayer.

Zoyowa Lava-Tongue 2 drop deathtoucher. Nighthawk Scavenger 3 drop.

Zobeth on Zada, Hedron Grinder - Goblin Spellslinger

I like this beat down version of Zada a lot. Unfortunately Soul's Fire and Gravitic Punch dont work how you probably want it to work. Since it will target Zada and another creature or player, It doesnt trigger Zada. You could probably fill these spots with some spot removal such as Lightning Bolt or Zoyowa's Justice

Niko9 on Favorite EDH Cards

Oh, and it may seem a little weird but I really love targeted removal in EDH. One of my favorite things in a game is to look around the table, assess threats, and have lots of flexible answers. Cards like

Cast Out

Lightning Bolt


Path to Exile

Swift Reconfiguration

Tragic Slip

Actually, yep, Tragic Slip is definitely my pet removal spell : ) It's always the best card in my hand, it just depends on when it gets used.

I guess part of it is that when I used to play board sweepers it always felt so uninteractive. So many games became, somebody doing a combo, does anyone have Cyclonic Rift? And that's so chance dependent that it feels unfun, to me at least. I like target removal because they always have a target, so I can play enough of them to always have some answer, and then it's on me if I don't save it for the correct threat.

With only 16 lands in your deck, you won’t have the mana to cast Desolation Twin until you’ve drawn around 38 cards… there is no way a game is going that long regardless of format/playstyle.

If I were making changes, I would ditch all of Hedron Blade (too weak, too niche), Slab Hammer (really bad card), Desolation Twin (the game’s never going long enough to cast it), and both Retreat to Hagra and Retreat to Valakut (neither really do anything).

In their place I would add 6 more lands, 4x Lightning Bolt, and 4x Flame Slash

Ionizing Blast


Ionizing Blast deals damage to any target equal to the amount of damage dealt by other instants and sorceries you've cast this turn.

At first, there was a mild Shock. Then, a Lightning Bolt the likes of which wielded by Keranos himself. And then, Rolling Thunder that engulfed all of Theros.

Make a Planeswalker who can be your commander, who gives you an emblem.

I like what you got here. The only things I can suggest are the following.

1) run four copies of Lightning Bolt. It acts like removal and gives you the ability to hit your opponent’s life total directly. I personally feel Kazuul's Fury  Flip, Mutagenic Growth, Kazandu Mammoth  Flip and Wayward Guide-Beast aren’t needed unless you run three or more copies of each.

2) cards like Ancestral Anger, Audacity, Charge Through and Crash Through allow you to get past walls of creatures with trample and also draw you a card, which can make your deck more consistent.

I think the ideal list for you would be this.

4 Akoum Hellhound, 4 Brushfire Elemental, 3 Lotus Cobra, 3 Atarka’s Command, 4 Lightning Bolt, 3 Temur Battle Rage, 4 Crash Through, 4 Enter the Unknown, 4 Explore, 4 Skyclave Pick-Axe, 23 lands

AxonsReplete what kind if budget are you wanting? Good 1-mana options could include some interaction which you’re sorely lacking - stuff like Lightning Bolt, Flame Slash, Fatal Push. With the various sacrificing going on Stalactite Stalker might be a good option too, just for being a 1-mana creature that gets big

Some thoughts:

  • i’m not convinced that either Experimental Frenzy or Footfall Crater do anything useful for you here.

  • your land count is super-low considering your mana curve and your requirement to hit at least 3 lands - i’d go up to 22-23.

  • it’ll be better just to run a mountain instead of Kazuul's Fury  Flip

  • where’s Lightning Bolt!!
