seshiro_of_the_orochi on Flori(da M)an, Says He Can "Cast Spells"

3 months ago

First things first, the deck name is gold.

Next I have some cards you might want to consider:

Treasonous Ogre helps you not to die within the Hidetsugu combo kill you have in here. Also, it's great ramp.

Neheb, the Eternal helps you in actually casting the spells you exiled in a big turn.

When considering cuts, be sure to take a close look at Apex of Power. I have it in Cecily, Haunted Mage, as she allows me to cast it from hand for free. As aqesome as it seems in impulse decks such as Florian or Prosper, it's actually kind of terrible in those. You want to cast it from your hand. It's really bad when you cast it from exile, because that means you don't get the extra mana.

What's more, Dream Devourer would be pretty powerful with Prosper, Nalfeshnee and similar cards.

Great build! I love the fact you're using a lot of the AFR and CLB cards.

I can't think of many recommendations, but I'll throw some out there just for thought - not saying they'd necessarily be better than anything currently in the deck.

Checky on Big Problems Require The Maddest Solutions

8 months ago

DreadKhan I considered many times running Phyrexian Purge, which I really like, and it can be a good choice for a wrath effect, despite disliking the life loss, because it is a deck that brings a lot of hate (for obvious reasons) and in general I like having high life totals for the Treasonous Ogre, but I will consider it. Talking about the Snuff Out, I never though of that one being good in here idk why, maybe for the life loss, or the restriction of being nonblack, but it's another good option, but in both cases, the major problem is what to cut to put those cards, so thanks for the suggestions, I'll put them for the moment in the maybe board for later study, but I would appreciate options to cut for those cards too, if you have any idea. <3

MightyPox on Demon Till Your Dreams Come True

Ok, ignore my previous comment.

After a two year hiatus I recently started to play Magic more regularly and got more experience with my Rakdos deck.

I replaced Sower of Discord with Pestilence Demon and was quite impressed how good it is against my opponents' creatures in general.

I added Chrome Mox instead of Mox Diamond because I need the land card to come back after a Rakdos attack.

Did you take a look at some of the newer demons:

  • Hidetsugu, Devouring Chaos - nice cmc, could help filtering and smoothen our draws.

  • Orcus, Prince of Undeath - needs to be cast so reanimating him is not good. We need a lot of mana for his second ability because of the high cmc of the creatures in our deck. But if we have 11+ mana available (maybe from Sacrifice, Burnt Offering or Treasonous Ogre) he becomes a mass reanimation spell. The haste is also nice with our extra combat step effects.

  • Balor - some kind of disruption on a demon. I like it but don't know if his effect is strong enough to run him. Great art though!

  • Vrock - if it said "for each permanent" it would have nice synergies with a Rakdos swing but as it is it does not do enough.

  • Nalfeshnee - normally we don't cast spells from exile.

Demons I might test:

Hidetsugu, Devouring Chaos and Balor are interesting but they don't really add something to our general game plan.

Orcus, Prince of Undeath could be a finisher but with the high mana requirement it is a bit situational.

AndWelcomeToTheJam on Zada Is Storming Away

I am a fellow Zada enjoyer, and I like what you've got going on in your aggressive list! My list is a little more combo-focused, but I have a couple card suggestions that still might translate well to yours.

Mirrorwing Dragon: It's just a second copy of Zada. Not many EDH decks can say they have multiple versions of their general. Opponents will often hate Zada out of the game by repeatedly countering or killing it. While I see you do have cards to counteract this like Red Elemental Blast and Reverberate, having the Dragon available if Zada gets too expensive to recast is awesome, and it also dissuades opponents from trying to use single-target removal on it.

Treasonous Ogre: A slam-dunk mono red accelerator. Zada can make more use of the red mana than most other generals of the same type by cycling through cards so effectively, and going down to a single-digit life total is worth it if you can kill the whole table like Zada can. Will end the game if not dealt with.

Anax, Hardened in the Forge: A newer addition to my list, but has proven itself to be incredibly valuable as a form of boardwipe protection, instantly rebuilding your board. My list does have a higher number of creature cards, so it may not be an auto-include for you, but it still might be worth a test run.

Reality Scramble: An incredibly fun card to effectively convert your tokens into multiple creatures from your deck, potentially all of them with enough tokens in play. Again, may not be an auto-include for your current list since you have a Goblin subtheme. This card also gets much better if you have Mirrorwing Dragon in your list; you would be sacrificing Zada but potentially replacing it with a bigger Zada. I also personally run a couple creature-based infinites involving Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, so a well-timed Reality Scramble can end the game. Regardless, it's a unique effect that Zada can take advantage of.

If you feel like taking a look at my own brew for Zada and gathering some ideas, see here: Zada, Miracle Worker

This deck is simply amazing. Great list, and Anax as the commander really surprised me. Very well done!

The few cards I'm not absolutely sold on are Dragon Fodder and its more expensive versions, but I have no fitting idea on what to replace them with.

Some cards you could still consider are those:

Warstorm Surge is a second copy of Terror of the Peaks. Caldera Hellion is a wipe that lets you sacrifice your board and leaves you with a ginormous beatstick. Ryusei, the Falling Star is a fine attacker that also can wipe if you need it. I realize Thermopod is perfect for the list, but Treasonous Ogre would be another great ramp card. I think you'd really want Anger in here, and Introduction to Annihilation is a great way for red decks to deal with Planeswalker. Finally, how about Shifting Shadow for the lols?

I think dedicating more cards to ramping in and protecting Gisela would make your list a little stronger. You don't need so many pillowfort cards since Gisela prevents half the damage dealt to you. Also you don't need so many beaters since Gisela can take players out pretty quickly on her own, especially if she's dropping in faster. Personally I would make the following swaps:

Parhelion II -> Generator Servant
Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas -> Ur-Golem's Eye
Lyra Dawnbringer -> Sisay's Ring
Angel of Serenity -> Palladium Myr
Drakuseth, Maw of Flames -> Treasonous Ogre
Windborn Muse -> Coalition Relic
Ghostly Prison -> Monologue Tax
Thalia's Lancers -> Flawless Maneuver
Thundersong Trumpeter -> Lightning Greaves
Ilharg, the Raze-Boar -> Ogre Battledriver
Baneslayer Angel -> Bloodsworn Steward
Stalking Leonin -> Bastion Protector
Gisela, the Broken Blade -> Manabarbs
Bruna, the Fading Light -> Burning Earth
Cathartic Reunion -> Tome of Legends
1x Mountain -> Bonders' Enclave
1x Plains -> War Room

Due to Alabaster Dragon, this already isn't modern legal, so why not add some copies of Treasonous Ogre?
