RambIe on About Urza's Saga in cEDH

3 weeks ago

im running Galazeth Prismari . i run a lot of cast untap creatures Blistercoil Weird , Blisterspit Gremlin , Thermo-Alchemist etc. and i put in Urza's Saga thinking it would be good to fetch Paradise Mantle . so far i have found a lot of weird unexpected uses for it. example one game turn 3 i tapped it floating a colorless, sacked it for a Seat of the Synod and casted Snap . with the same method of floating a mana it can also fetch and activate Sensei's Divining Top at your upkeep. its not broken but i've never been disappointed by its resolve i mean even in worse case it can always fetch a sol ring or indestructible artifact land

I'm not sure about vexing devil. If your opponent knows you got something up your sleeve with blink spells, they might just let it stay in which case the spell would do nothing. Also, if they do let the devil do damage to them twice, the rebound from ephemerate is wasted which is also not great.

Inner-Flame Acolyte might be okay, but is better if you have another creature on the board (since targeting itself the first etb does nothing). Abbot of Keral Keep is one of my favorite monored cards and I think it could work pretty well here, taking the place of Light Up the Stage for a burn deck's card draw slot.

Ingot Chewer should be in the board. Maybe Wispmare as well.


lagotripha ( Akroma, Angel of Fury has protection from white so you can't blink her.) Nevermind I see what you're doing here, that's nice. I would second this suggestion, although the second blink from Ephemerate does nothing here.

Avalanche Riders + Blood moon mainboard seems like a different type of deck (land destruction flicker), also 5 mana is pretty slow. If only Faultgrinder wasn't utter trash ;o_o

Suppression Field fucks up Thermo-Alchemist big time - it could work if Balaam__ decides to run Electrostatic Field instead (which also happens to not die to bolt).

Thermo-Alchemist would perform well here (It isn’t 1cmc, but then neither are Snapcaster Mage or Bonecrusher Giant ). In any case, half your deck can untap the alchemist so you’re essentially guaranteed at least 2 pings per turn through his ability. He’s budget friendly too!

You could go down in landcount to like, 17-18 lands. Also, instead of Reclaim consider Pulse of Murasa . Consider Thermo-Alchemist because it can get burn off of your fog spells as well. Curse of the Pierced Heart considering you're trying to drag the game out while burning them to death, Searing Blaze over Shock because it can hit creatures and players, and considering you're split between fog and burn you want every burn spell to go as far as possible.

I love Thermo-Alchemist in burn, which is mono red, but it's not a creature deck, so maybe not what you're looking for.

The best way to power up this deck would probably be to find lower CMC alternatives to Lightning Strike and Searing Spear , plus something a little stronger than Shock . Lava Spike and Rift Bolt are some popular options. With Thermo-Alchemist being an easy source of damage on demand, spectacle cards like Skewer the Critics and Light Up the Stage would be my personal choices. You also have a lot of lands for burn, so maybe Shard Volley or Searing Blaze could be on the table. Finally, any cantrip becomes a lot better with all of your creatures caring about them. In mono-red, the best options would probably be Manamorphose , Tormenting Voice / Cathartic Reunion , or Needle Drop .
