I'm not sure of previous versions of this deck, but I have some cards I think you should add, plus some cards I think you should either just consider replacing or simply just take out. We'll start with the ADD list.

ADD:

  • Earthquake and/or Rolling Earthquake (You already have an effect like this in Subterranean Tremors , but this also hits players, so you'll deal EXTRA damage on top of the extra damage from the commander.)

  • Arcane Signet (You have Fire Diamond , but not Arcane Signet?)

  • Starstorm (An effect like many others, but this one has cycling.)

  • Fire Servant (It's not the cheapest creature, but it has an ability that you might want more of. You can always use more damage doubling.)

  • Mana Geyser (Look, it's just a good card to get a lot of mana quickly. Not super necessary, but it's fast mana in R)

  • Heartless Hidetsugu (I'm just suggesting this one because cutting your opponents down to 20 is great and makes killing them easier.)

  • Seething Song (Fast Mana good.)

  • Seize the Spoils (I noticed a lack of card draw, and this is a pretty neat mono-red card draw spell.)

  • Endless Atlas (Again, card draw, and it's cheap and consistent.)

  • Genesis Chamber (Yeah, it requires your opponents to be playing creatures a bit, but it makes it just that much easier to kill them. Plus the Myr generated are all 1/1s, so they will easily let excess damage through from the rest of the deck.)

  • Sanctuary Blade (A little expensive on the equip side, but this is another consitent way to give your commander pro-red.)

  • Sword of Sinew and Steel / Sword of War and Peace (You have Sword of Fire and Ice , so why not have more of the red ones?)

  • Chandra, Awakened Inferno (Her + kills your opponents faster, her - does what you commander wants, her -X is neat. I think she's all around a great inclusion.)

  • Chandra, Torch of Defiance (Okay, so now is where I admit that you only had 1 planeswalker and I talk about how much I like Planeswalker cards. I think they're cool and fun. This specific one is great beacause she either gives you mana or draws you a card, essentially. Her two differ +1's are really the only reason, but her ult is something your opponents wont want to have go off, either.)

  • Caged Sun (More Mana in mono-red.)

Subtract:

  • Ignite the Future (It's too expensive for what it does. You can better spend the mana on a Chandra, Torch of Defiance or something. Yeah, it's kind of card draw, but you can do better.)

  • Pyroblast (Unless this is for a VERY SPECIFIC meta where you are going against mean U decks, this will be more frustrating in hand than useful, I think. Plus, color-specific hate like this just feels out of place in this format, unless, of course, your meta is particularly skewed a certain way.)

  • Red Elemental Blast (See Above.)

  • Tibalt's Trickery (Yeah, cool counterspell, but I think the deck should focus more on itself, personally.)

  • Wheel of Fate (There are better, and faster, ways to draw cards. I like the idea of this card, but in having played it over and over again, either it never actually resolves -like the game ends- or it just feels like a relative waste because people can see it coming and plan ahead.)

  • Fire Diamond (Replace this with Arcane Signet . It's just better.)

  • Lavabrink Floodgates (To be fair, I've never played with this card, but OH BOY does it seem bad. If you're not proliferating the counters, then this will NEVER go off if your opponents don't want it to, and they would never want it to with this deck, unless a board-wipe JUST happened and there are not creatures. So then it's just a 4-drop mana rock producing 2, and you can just replace it with something better like Caged Sun that will help you Earthquake for a win faster.

  • Arch of Orazca (I noticed in your mana base that you have 13 lands that tap for colorless. That seems like too many for me - it's almost the same number of Snow-Covered Mountain s you have. So I am recommending removing some. I get why this one is here, for the card draw, but this is SO EXPENSIVE. I don't even run it in my colorless Emrakul deck.)

  • Great Furnace (I like this card, I really do. I LOVE artifacts. But without any artifact synergies, this is more likely do get Shatter ed or Vandalblast ed than actually help you, and that'll feel bad. Just replace it with a Snow-Covered Mountain .)

  • Hanweir Battlements  Flip (Same reason for the colorless mana, and I don't really see many reasons other than, maybe 2 creatures for the need for haste, but it's not a necessity to be removed.)

  • Leyline of Punishment (I get that this is here to make it harder for your opponents to survive or heal up, but honestly, just play Heartless Hidetsugu or something else to keep life totals low. This one is often going to feel more like a do-nothing enchantment unless your meta is HEAVY life-gain.)

  • Treasonous Ogre (Fast mana, sure, but it seemed overall pretty meh to me in this deck. It's better at killing you than it is at providing mana in this specific deck, I think.)

  • Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor (The effect is important for making sure you opponents have creatures, but getting her to hit you opponents before they have blockers is going to be a challenge, and if you draw her late-game, then she's just a 3/3 blocker.)

  • Bonfire of the Damned (The miracle cost is cool, but most of the time I think you'd rather something like Earthquake that will most likely hit almost all of their creatures AND more than 1 opponent/opponent's board. Plus, if this isn't Miracle'd, then this is pretty trash in your hand.)

I'm sure I said add more cards than take out, and I know I said take out a couple lands, but not really add any, but I hope this is helpful.

Daedalus19876 on Momo: Twice the horns, twice the fun

Have you considered Generator Servant , Dockside Extortionist , Treasonous Ogre , and Imperial Recruiter for your list? Generator is a great way to accelerate an early Momo, Dockside costs a little $$$ but is worth every penny, and Treasonous is an undervalued way to get HUGE swings of mana very quickly. And Imperial Recruiter can help find Magda, Brazen Outlaw easily... Seems like a great budget deck!

Hello Grind,

First of all, thank you for your comment :)

I don't include Grafted Exoskeleton as it's really hard to prevent yourself from being knocked off by it as well (unless your life total happens to be very low). I could see myself playing it as I can somehow manage my hp's with Treasonous Ogre and nullify it with Glacial Chasm , but it tend to draw games and it is not the most fun experience for the table in the end of the day ^^

Recent Changes:

Vandalblast out for Jeska's Will - In an effort to make sure every card in the deck has something to do with either strengthening the battlefield or preserving my position on it, this one is just a bit weak, especially when it is the only effect out of 99 cards. So add more you say, then the effect won't be so rare! Then the combat strength is further diluted. Definitely a meta call, at the moment my meta doesn't have a lot of artifact heavy decks so this just sits in my hand a lot.

Experimental Frenzy out for Cavalier of Flame (TESTING)- I think that the need for Frenzy has lessened with the last few releases bringing so much draw that we can take advantage of. On top of that, I always dismissed Cavalier as just a dumb standard card which was a mistake because it is perfectly built for a deck like this. The only real test here is whether Frenzy is the card I cut for Cavalier, not whether Cavalier has a spot. Thoughts on a better cut?

Pending Changes:

Treasonous Ogre out for Toralf, God of Fury  Flip - I've cut and re-added this poor ogre so many times, and I've said that many times before, but when I feel so much of the deck is so solid than it is not about identifying which cards are weak, but which ones are the least strong (or just not fun enough!). Again, any better ideas for this cut?
