Torbran, Thane of Red Fell Discussion

Unlife on Dream Tribal Commanders

2 hours ago

Another vote for a legendary phoenix. I'm running Torbran, Thane of Red Fell for my phoenix tribal deck but I'd love a more thematic commander.

Along the line's of "never going to happen", I'd be interested in a RBGW legendary ooze.

Unlife on State of Mono-Colored Decks in …

2 weeks ago

Personal experience within my own playgroup? Mono-colored decks, any of them, can all be built very well even outside of cEDH. But, it may take some time to tune and refine them to that point. I've got Omnath, Locus of Mana , Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , Radiant, Archangel , Thada Adel, Acquisitor , and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , and they all play well with a variety of card draw, removal, ramp, etc. But, one of the best decks I play against is a God-Eternal Oketra deck. It can turn out an army of creatures incredibly quickly, almost always has a few cards in hands plus a nice suite of removal. I think that like any other EDH deck, mono-colored decks can almost always be adjusted and optimized and fiddled with to get a great end result, but it just take the time of playing with the deck to figure out what you need.

Suggestions:

Remove:

1x Tangle Wire

1x Bolt Bend Is this ever reduced for your commander?

1x Changeling Berserker

1x Drakuseth, Maw of Flames

1x Taurean Mauler It's okay but sort of unnecessary. Can have an artifact dwarf instead.

1x Torbran, Thane of Red Fell Useless in your deck, replace with a 1 mana dwarf.

1x By Force

1x Shattering Spree

1x Wheel of Misfortune Really unreliable, especially if all 4 players still playing.

1x Akroma's Memorial You shouldn't win by combat.

1x Illusionist's Bracers One use of commander should be more than enough to win.

1x Dwarven Thaumaturgist His effect is irrelevent.

1x Mycosynth Lattice Mana fixing for opponents, how generous.

1x Rings of Brighthearth see Illusionist's Bracers above

Add:

1x Clock of Omens Primary wincon, and at instant speed.

1x Dwarven Grunt 1 mana dwarves

1x Dwarven Scorcher 1 mana dwarves

1x Dwarven Trader 1 mana dwarves

1x Enslaved Dwarf 1 mana dwarves

1x Liberated Dwarf 1 mana dwarves

1x Proteus Machine Artifact dwarf, slotted for consistency. Unnecessary really, can be replaced with whatever.

1x Feldon of the Third Path Can create an artifact dwarf or maybe pull out a dragon that was discarded/played if game went too long.

1x Dwarven Recruiter Can grab us an artifact dwarf, or whatever deemed necessary. Great with Jeska's Will .

1x Possessed Portal Use if winning and clock of omens has been dealt with or you don't have an artifact dwarf.

1x Daretti, Scrap Savant Good for rummaging or returning an artifact, since you always have a treasure in play. Can be replaced with good card draw.

1x Mystic Forge 1/4 of deck is artifacts. Can also fix dead draws to a certain extent. Can be replaced with good card draw.

1x Herald's Horn Call dwarves every time. Can be replaced with good card draw.

1x Final Fortune Can win out of nowhere. Use only if you are certain you can win. Be careful, highly recommended only if opponents appear tapped out.

Other worthy mentions I don't feel like figuring out how to slot in right now:

Vanquisher's Banner Great draw, and a buff. You can play like half your deck Dwarven Recruiter .

Outpost Siege Solid red card draw.

Commune with Lava Playable red card advantage.

Maze of Ith Use this as a spell slot, not a land slot. Can untap your own dwarves, or be used defensively.

Shatterskull Smashing  Flip Removal or land.

Scrying Sheets all your lands are snow for whatever reason, so could be okay if you have nothing else to cast in a turn.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle with all these mountains, why not?

Command Beacon In case people kill your 1 toughness commander too many times.

Darksteel Citadel More artifacts. ONLY PUT IF you don't have color problems.

Flamekin Village Not sure if haste is important enough, but something to consider.

Hanweir Battlements  Flip More haste.

Inventors' Fair gives you health, but more importantly can tutor an artifact.

Madblind Mountain If you end up with a lot of top deck shenanigans.

Labyrinth of Skophos If you're being attacked.

Kher Keep Chump blockers.

Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep Might help seem more intimidating early game?

Sequestered Stash Can return an artifact to your DECK, and then commander can grab it.

Sea Gate Wreckage If you run out of cards and have colorless mana sources.

Quicksand Can dissuade attackers

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Big mana

Myriad Landscape Ramp

Mouth of Ronom If you still have too many snow lands.

GoblinsBeatElves on Does damage from Obsidian Fireheart’s …

Basically what the title says. Wondering specifically for effects such as Torbran, Thane of Red Fell . Do the blaze counters from Obsidian Fireheart count as being from a red source, or do the counters themselves not have a color? Just need a bit of clarification

Staakman on Flame of Righteousness

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

NicodaPico on Magda, Magicians Red

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?

3 months 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.
