Throes of Chaos

Throes of Chaos


Cascade (When you cast this spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom of your library in a random order.)

Retrace (You may cast this card from your graveyard by discarding a land card in addition to paying this card's other costs.)

I forgot about Throes of Chaos its in all the mono and two color red decks im running at the moment. An excellent way to hit utility cards, removal and mana rocks. Absolutly nuts in Goblins and decks that use affinity. If you build your deck in the way Boros players do with Sunforger it can be really rewarding. Heck run them in the same deck.

Hey! what an original deck, have you thought of Throes of Chaos and the expertises ( Baral's Expertise or Rishkar's Expertise are my favourite).

You could even have a look at discarding permanents and recurring them from the graveyard. I see Shark Typhoon finding a slot here.

If you'd like, you might find some interesting cards inmy Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder deck Yidros. Also I just finished my Rafiq of the Many Delegates, would love some feedback!

Have a good one!

abby315 Thank you!!! Tormod was not my first instinct, but I am so glad that I landed there eventually. Painful Truths is definitely getting swapped in! I think Faithless Looting is one of the last cuts I made. I've had it become a dead card in hand, but I think I'll add it back if I also fit it Crucible of Worlds just to have better discard options. Throes of Chaos is great and plays so nicely with Laelia! Mizzix's Mastery was hit or miss depending on if I got to the scrollwielder and other ncs recursion effects first. But, I was always only considering it for the overload, and even without that, it can help with storming off nicely. And Mentor of the Meek is perfect! Especially with Tormod and the Sedgemoor Witch. Thanks for stopping by!

What a fun idea for a deck! I love creative uses for Tormod.

Painful Truths is often going to be a better Ancient Craving in your 3c deck. Night's Whisper is also a good option. I would also really think you'd want Faithless Looting both for the discard and the flashback, and Valakut Awakening  Flip is a nice self-wheel plus a land-drop if you need it.

There's also Throes of Chaos , which is a fun little Cascade engine that makes sure you don't have dead draws late in the game.

If you find you want to turbo your GY a little more, consider dredgers like Stinkweed Imp paired with self-mill, the best of which is probably Altar of Dementia and Mesmeric Orb .

Mizzix's Mastery also seems like a good "win the game" option for you!

Mentor of the Meek is a nice card-draw engine with Tormod.

Defense Grid does the job and works with Throes of Chaos . I've tried it and its solid. Maybe some number? Its a hard match-up no matter what. Even a few more Throes of Chaos could be helpful, since its potentially a spell every turn they have to counter. Grafdigger's Cage makes a difference against control and their Snapcaster Mage . Noxious Revival could be a good way to mess with a number of those interactions too. Its the "snappy, sanctuary, counter-spell" combo we're really worried about since its so broken. I mean we are blue.. so maybe just better counter spells ourselves. Narset's Reversal is extremely fun. I've definitely beat blue more than once playing: Narset's Reversal your Narset's Reversal over and over again until you run out of mana. Its probably the most fun way to win that counter war! :)

Some number of Leyline of Sanctity is probably correct for hand disruption metas.. which is where we were at before the most recent degeneracy. Now I think Dismember looks pretty good.

Looking at some of my old write up, Trinisphere would actually be pretty good against the current Cascade decks. Damping Sphere too. Side out our Throes of Chaos for that hate, since it affects us too.

We're incredibly consistent and only lose by one maybe two turns most of the time in a turn 3.5/4 modern meta.. If wizards prints a land that flips into a 7CMC planeswalker we're golden but they'd never do tha-

As a rule I wouldn't go below 39 lands when sideboarding unless you just drop the fast Seismic plan. We're almost like Rack and prefer to be on the draw since we can turn 2 Seismic Assault with Gemstone Caverns .

If I have Krark, with no thumbs on the battlefield and I cast Throes of Chaos , if I get tails, do I still cascade, and if I get heads, Does the copy Cascade?
