Spikefield Hazard

Instant

Spikefield Hazard deals 1 damage to any target (creature, player, planeswalker or battle). If a permanent dealt damage this way would die this turn, exile it instead.

Return the Past - expensive, but a huge value engine

City on Fire - might not be worth it since you could rarely get the mana discount, but the power is there

Ensnared by the Mara - some damage and value

Spikefield Hazard  Flip - could take a land slot

Court of Embereth - draws a card and starts to make blockers

Virtue of Courage - a bit of burn, then HUGE card advantage. Could be a must-include!

Realm-Scorcher Hellkite - there are a bunch of dragons with repeatable damage abilities--perhaps those would be great mana sinks?

Hearth Elemental - could be decent card draw, then a blocker. Not amazing, but there it is

Flick a Coin - kinda funny

Ravaging Blaze - not amazing removal, but you'll usually have Spell Mastery

Insurrection - a bit anticlimactic, but if you're whittling down life totals this could very often win the game. The red creatures would do bonus damage too. Sorcery synergy I guess

Disrupt Decorum - could get the heat off of you for a turn or two

Abrade - creature removal or artifact removal--the option is nice

Fires of Mount Doom - expensive but repeatable card-draw. A bit of removal and damage too. Perhaps a must-include?

Interesting tight build. The power of Labyrinth Raptor is evident.

I like some one mana burn like Play with Fire or the above mentioned Spikefield Hazard  Flip but the synergy with cheap burn and your Pestilent Spirit can be overwhelming.

One potential addition could be Insolent Neonate this could keep in theme but also dig you through your deck.

Finally Rampaging Ferocidon is just a powerful creature with menace.

to_regatha_and_beyond Glorybringer is way, way too expensive for this deck. I've only seen this deck hit it's fifth land on games that go very long, and even rarely then. There's only 16 basic lands in here, and 4 Spikefield Hazard  Flip that can act as lands in a bind. Plus, Glorybringer doesn't synergize with the Guttersnipe effects the deck is built around and only works if they have a creature in their yard. In the perfect game, you would spend all your damage spells directly on them (you only target creatures when necessary). Thanks for checking the deck out!

Hey, you haven't really made a complete deck yet to begin optimizing? Since there's only 14 lands here and you have to know that's not enough lands for a Commander deck?

There's some good ideas here, such as stealing opponent's creatures, attacking with them and then sacing them, but you want more sac outlets for this strategy. Making opponents discard cards is good, but giving an opponent the choice of what card to discard can be problematic for Tariel since opponent is not going to discard a creature. There's some reanimation and lots of recursion here which is good in these colors, but there's few enablers to get your creatures into your graveyard.

Some causal budget deck building advice to get started.

To start add 36 lands, they can be all basic lands to begin, can change some to dual lands later. Have 36 lands so you fill all the spots that are needed for lands and to clearly see how many cards have to be cut for lands. The double faced cards represented as lands here are all terrible cards for the mana cost. Cut them all and replace them with basic lands?

To add more lands next cut all the Pacifism removal? This type of creature removal doesn't interact with Tariel, Reckoner of Souls because it doesn't kill opponent's creature putting it into opponent's graveyard. If you want to utilize Tariel's ability then your opponent's creatures have to be put into graveyards, not exiled or stuck on the battlefield unable to attack or block.

The next cards to cut to add more lands are the high mana cost creatures who don't do enough for Tariel, Reckoner of Souls. Tariel is the high mana cost spell you want to cast more than the rest, the other spells played should have some interaction with him or interact with opponent's creature in some way such as In Garruk's Wake. Keep Wake, cut the rest?

Cards to cut last are some that just aren't doing enough for the mana cost and don't have any interaction with Tariel, Reckoner of Souls or the other strategies being played.

All these cuts make enough spots for 36 lands. When you have enough lands then you can begin to optimize the rest of your deck. Good luck.

I've noticed that Pestilent Spirit is amazing in this kind of build and does wonders when paired with End the Festivities or another burn spell, perhaps Spikefield Hazard  Flip if you will.

Awesome deck, I've had a lot of fun with my build too!

wallisface I was thinking it wouldn't be too bad because 20 land plus 2 from Spikefield Hazard  Flip plus Strike it Rich giving a little something. Also the only card higher than CMC 3 is Fury (which you can evoke for 0) and Obosh. So while more mana for doing graveyard stuff with Seasoned Pyromancer, Hammer of Bogardan, and the companion would be good, I don't think it is needed.

I did playtest a little and yeah there were some cases where I did miss land drops but i'm not exactly sure what I want to do about it yet. I think i'm going to cut Lightning Bolt for 1 mountain and 1 Strike it Rich and see how that goes.

If i exile a Spikefield Hazard  Flip with Isochron Scepter, can i cast the land side? what about with a card like Chun-Li, Countless Kicks

Revamp this o_o

so many new cards that could be swapped. I love the spell lands: Spikefield Hazard  Flip, Valakut Awakening  Flip, Shatterskull Smashing  Flip.

Fury, Bonecrusher Giant... pretty bold of you to not run the rabblemasters (Goblin Rabblemaster, Legion Warboss)

Yeah... you can tell this is really old school if it's running Arc-Slogger.

OH WOW I ACTUALLY FOUND THE LIST. The original one is from 2009! Early days of Legacy...

Well, there's a lot of cool stuff you could try now.

You can even try Goblin Dark-Dwellers or Glorybringer (GDD needs some more spells to function).

Also the planeswalkers... there's a ton of newer ones.
