Rolling Earthquake deals X damage to each creature without horsemanship and each player.
Rolling Earthquake Discussion
1 month ago
Pretty much. I'm giving JVP a go at the moment - bit of a nombo with Cursed Totem but otherwise great for the deck. I've never been unhappy with Fire Covenant but the arguments against it (using life, prohibitive mana cost, not really needing an instant speed wrath) are starting to win me over. Still getting punched in the face by Tymna a fair bit so back to Rolling Earthquake - Pyroclasm is likely to get a trial run in the near future too. Vandalblast will likely rotate back in when the fast artifact mana and scepter decks inevitably become more prevalent again. All worthy cards.

In this scenario, I am in a game of commander. I am playing Thrasios, Triton Hero and Vial Smasher the Fierce storm. I have only a couple of win conditions: Isochron Scepter (with something like Lightning Bolt under it and a Paradox Engine out) and Aetherflux Reservoir . But sadly, both of those are irrelevant. Both scepter and reservoir are in my graveyard as well as all of my recursion cards. I have no way to shuffle my graveyard into my deck. The rest of my deck consists of mostly rocks and cantrips, but no clear way to win.
If I cast Rolling Earthquake for a large enough amount of mana to reduce all player's life totals to zero or less life, how does the game end? Does any player win based on turn order? Do I win?
Thank you in advance for any insight you can give on the issue.

I think there's at least a few auto includes youre missing here
1. Toxic Deluge
2. Fire Covenant
3. Blood Moon
4. Magus of the Moon
4. Pyroblast Functional clone of Red Elemental Blast and a better version of some of your other red counter spells
5. Gamble This downside isn't always all downside because of the GY focus of deck
Should Strongly Consider
1. Dark Confidant You have very low avg CMC so this will never be a problem
2. Demonic Consultation
4. Praetor's Grasp
5. Imperial Seal
6. Blood Artist Has a lot of synergy with your combos
7. Rakdos Signet
8. Talisman of Indulgence
9. Cabal Ritual
10. Cursed Totem
1. Rolling Earthquake
2. Dark Petition
3. Azra Oddsmaker
5. Infernal Darkness
7. Anger of the Gods
8. By Force
9. Animate Dead
10. Phyrexian Arena
11. Mindblade Render

Yeah I'm still working on it, but the current list is doing good at my meta. I am contemplating on adding in Rolling Earthquake albeit due to the amount of dorks my pods run now. Missing an Imperial Seal really sucks though, my friend killed me when I Ad Nauseam , using an Noxious Revival to put my Dark Petition on top of my library :/

Changed some ideas as formulated above:
Mana Geyser out, Coldsteel Heart in. This will help get Neheb out faster, Mana Geyser does not contribute to this and functions mostly as a redundant mana boost to fuel X spells. Neheb already does this perfectly fine. Also, I am not feeling comfortable with only 34 lands.

Thanks for the feedback @multimedia, much appreciated as always!
Took the deck out for a first try last night and I had an absolute blast. Never played an EDH deck as explosive as this one before. I won multiple games out of the blue, with an Banefire of X=38 as a highlight.
Right now I am considering the following changes:
Runehorn Hellkite out, Urabrask the Hidden in. The wheeleffect from the Runehorn Hellkite seems too conditional and most of all too costly. It does make a nice target for discard, but I expect much more value out of Urabrask the Hidden in terms of explosive turns.
I also keep playing with the thought of Spawn of Thraxes, but somehow he seems only worthwhile if I am able to abuse his ETB, which I do not see happening in mono red...
Looking forward to any feedback!

Hey, very nice budget Commander deck.
Cards to consider adding:
- Rolling Earthquake: one of the best mass burn all player spells in Magic. It was reprinted in the From the Vault: Annihilation, try to get one
- Past in Flames: recast mass burn from your graveyard
- Mass Hysteria: haste is excellent with Neheb as well as all the big creatures (Dragon Mage) you can ramp into
- Urabrask the Hidden: haste and can help Neheb to hit a player since it can tap down blockers
- Hanweir Battlements: haste
- Gamble: unconditional tutor in red
- Inventors' Fair: tutor for Caged Sun or Amulet or Goggles
Cards to consider cutting:
- Wildfire Eternal: not very good with X damage spells, since can only cast them for X=0
- Jaya's Immolating Inferno
- Cryptolith Fragment
- Runehorn Hellkite
- 2x Mountain
Good luck with your deck.
