Tarnoduds on Torbran goes BRRR

Hey, I like your idea for this deck!

Cavalcade of Calamity and Raid Bombardment should be pretty sweet on this list. Also, I think Torbran is a good punish-enabler with cards like Pyrostatic Pillar , Eidolon of the Great Revel (lets be honest, you dont want this deck to go suuuuper long, and nowadays, people plays with lots of spells with CMC under 3) and Circle of Flame .

Also, if you play with Impact Tremors you can have damage dealt (x3!) for every goblin and demon your token generators can create.

Here are some cards you might consider that seem interesting:

Pyrostatic Pillar as a second Flame Zealot

Loyal Unicorn, The Wanderer as redundancy for Tajic's damage prevention.

Hour of Devastation, Blasphemous Act as one-sided wipes.

Stormwild Capridor, Truefire Captain, Boros Reckoner, Brash Taunter to play of the idea of damaging your own creatures.

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell for more damage Outputs.

Outpost Siege, maybe Valakut Exploration, Syr Carah, the Bold as card draw.

Hi there! I sifted through your list and chose 9 cards from amongst the higher price tags that I thought you could live without, then came up with 9 cheaper cards that seem to fit with what you have going here. I hope it's helpful

I read the previous comments, and I applaud you for intentionally foregoing infinite loops. I feel exactly the same way. Like how I refuse to add that Karmic Guide + Reveillark combo in my Cleverly Named Graveyard Deck. Nor any of the many combos involving Lab Man in neither my Spirit of '76 nor my Ramos Cascade Ramp, nor any other applicable combos.

As for card suggestions, I feel like Chandra's Incinerator might be useful for controlling the board, and Eidolon of the Great Revel makes sense because of your high mana cost distribution (if not also Pyrostatic Pillar, even though it's a noncreature), and also because this deck seems most effective against decks with incredibly low mana cost distribution.

Possibly also Trinisphere, which again is noncreature.

That's all I got.

Nice!! I was thinking of how to upgrade my Hallar deck and I came across this decklist. I found some possibly major upgrades, specifically, Spellshock and Pyrostatic Pillar. I want more of these similar to Hallar, the Firefletcher effects. :)

I also want to suggest Heroic Intervention. To save your side when you destroy lands.

I like the group slug in combination with a pillowfort idea. Gisela's wording offers a pretty unique opportunity. Triggered effects that would deal 1 damage to you while she is on the board deal no damage to you instead, but double damage to opponents. Manabarbs, AEther Sting, Battle Strain, Burning Earth, Heat of Battle, Rampaging Ferocidon, City of Brass, Talisman of Conviction, Battlefield Forge are all cards that would have their negative effect negated if Gisela is on the field, while opponents would suffer more.

Ankh of Mishra, Psychogenic Probe, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Pyrostatic Pillar, Repercussion, Spellshock, Zo-Zu the Punisher would all be cards that have their negative effects mitigated with Gisela out and opponents would suffer a lot more.

You could complement this game plan with pieces like War's Toll, Caltrops, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Aura of Silence, Glowrider, Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Vryn Wingmare, Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse to tax and slow them down while all the slug effects eat away at life totals.

I feel like there's quite a bit of space to be explored in this niche for Gisela.
