I had Sunscorched Desert in here but removed it as I need mountains for Torbran, Thane of Red Fell

i love the name first and foremost and i think the deck looks really neat. It's got alot of cool drgaons, lots of neat dwarves, its got a fair amount of ramp between artifacts and treasures, and its got a couple of board wipes. I think 39 lands is too many cause most of your cards are gonna be cheap dwarves and the bigger dragons you're gonna cheat into play anyways. dropping down to even 36 would probably be fine.

red has a big issue with removal when it comes to commander. abrade is a great start, but a well timed Lightning Strike , Lightning Bolt , Blazing Volley can help those dwarves swing in unimpeded. Footfall Crater has actually been a really fun card in my decks that i think you might enjoy, gives haste and trample to your dragons when they come in. Fire Prophecy and Soul Sear , Jaya's Immolating Inferno are also decent kill spells in commander. By Force is great for dealing with alot artifacts.

in terms of dwarves, Torbran, Thane of Red Fell is amazing, and i know you don't like the old frame cards but Dwarven Trader , Dwarven Scorcher , Spark Mage , Dwarven Grunt are some good one drop dwarves to play before magda so you can start making treasures turn two when she comes down.

I like this card. It is a nice way to pump creatures in a mono red aggro deck, as there are so many little hasty creatures ( Fervent Champion , Tin Street Dodger , Fanatical Firebrand ) in this type of deck. The CMC here is fine here as Torbran, Thane of Red Fell has the same cmc and has a pretty large game changing effect. Nice card.

Polaris on Can you give Nekusar infect?

1 month ago

Yes. The reason is that infect doesn't replace damage. Damage dealt by a source with infect is still damage, but instead of marking damage in creatures and causing players to lose life, it puts -1/-1 counters on creatures and poison counters on players.

Since infect damage is still damage, it can be increased by cards like Dictate of the Twin Gods or Torbran, Thane of Red Fell . The combo you have in mind will work.

It’s my main phase and I have a Nekusar, the Mindrazer and a Dream Halls in play. I cast Echo of Eons through dream halls, it resolves. Me and my opponents draw 7 cards and they get dealt 7 damage. Now, is it possible to cast all at once without passing priority Torbran, Thane of Red Fell and Day's Undoing through dream halls before my opponent cast Return to Dust through dream halls and thus doing 21 damage (7 new cards drawn)

Side note: with nekusar and days undoing, do you deal damage before you end the turn or does day’s undoing not work with nekusar?

RambIe on Tips for New EDH Player

mono red burn is very different in edh compared to 60 card format
its more about tax's and multipliers in order for it to be consistently lethal against 3 players with 40+ life
think Manabarbs , Impact Tremors , Electrostatic Field & Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , Jaya, Venerated Firemage , Furnace of Rath
wereotter is correct about the normal mono red creature removal not being as effective in commander but thats why the multipliers are necessary

Oh I didn't even look at the deck you had built, was just offering general advice for the colors, but I'll check it out and see if I can give any more specific advise!

Also Ramble I'll admit I use Lightning Bolt in certain decks... but it's by far nothing something I'd use in any red deck. Riku of Two Reflections or Torbran, Thane of Red Fell are obvious exceptions to the rule of places that Lightning Bolt is elevated to a point to be valuable. Though I'll also conceed that this can vary a LOT depending on your meta.
