Viashino Heretic

Creature — Viashino

(1)(Red), Tap: Destroy target artifact. Viashino Heretic deals damage to that artifact's controller equal to the artifact's converted mana cost.

DreadKhan on Lyzolda's Bloody Sunday

Basilisk Collar seems like it'd be pretty good with Lyzolda, she can then remove target creature by sacrificing any red creature (and you gain 2 life). Note 100% on this, but I really like Mask of Griselbrand in a deck that has creatures dying regularly. Mask is really, really good with Rite of the Raging Storm, which was reprinted recently and is amazing value in most metas, on top of which you can just sacrifice the Elemental to Lyzolda before it dies, too bad it's not also Black!

I wouldn't hesitate to run either Ashes to Ashes or Reckless Spite over something like Assassinate. I also would think about Chaos Warp to deal with any permanent that can be targeted.

Not 100% if they're worth it, but Rakdos Cackler, Manaforge Cinder and Footlight Fiend are each small bodies that offer you some utility on a 1 drop while also offering you 1 drops that are both Red and Black.

Not sure if you run into a lot of problematic artifacts, but Viashino Heretic seems really funny with Obosh and some high MV artifacts.

It's pretty pricey, but I'm not sure if there are many better fits for this deck than Ophiomancer, 2 mana to draw an extra card on each player's turn isn't bad value, and you still can block with the 1/1 Deathtouch if necessary (it mostly deters people in my experience). There is also Ogre Slumlord that makes 1/1 Deathtouch tokens, but you need to be killing other people's creatures to make it truly work, though just getting a Rat whenever you sacrifice one of your non-tokens might be good enough.

Very fun Commander IMHO, and always neat to see someone bother with a Companion, pinging is strong enough to be interesting without being obnoxious, and getting built in card draw seems really strong.

DreadKhan These are all great suggestions, thanks for taking the time!

Thieves' Auction, Blasphemous Act, Chain Reaction, War Room, Viashino Heretic and Citadel of Pain I will try and slot in.

Reckless Endeavor costs a little too much mana for me and I will certainly keep Vandalblast and Gorilla Shaman in mind if I need more artifact removal.

In my Rakdos deck (which is fairly Chaotic), I like find Thieves' Auction is almost a win con by itself, it's especially juicy if your board includes lands that aren't in the right colours for everyone else and you have a bunch of global effects that work regardless of who controls them, such that you just take a whole bunch of better stuff, including importantly the best thing. It doesn't even target anything, so it gets around almost anything, it's just a stupid 'I want your stuff, have my dreck'.

You might like Blasphemous Act, or maybe Chain Reaction or Reckless Endeavor. You might also like Vandalblast, Viashino Heretic, Gorilla Shaman or Citadel of Pain to discourage people from holding up interaction/burn them out. Not sure if it'll go lower, but War Room is probably a great card in mono-Red.

DreadKhan on Wyleth, but testing couple proxies

5 months ago

I like using Devout Witness and Viashino Heretic to help deal with artifacts/enchantments, and Jaya Ballard, Task Mage is pretty hilarious if you're already using Basilisk Collar (she can also remove any Blue Commander, which is hilarious I find). Brass Knuckles might do nothing when you double it up on most Commanders, but Wyleth will draw 2 cards each swing for 6 mana, not too shabby, and you can throw it onto some other creature in a pinch. I know you come with Trample, but Unquestioned Authority is a nice budget card for Voltron, draws on ETB and makes your Commander unblockable.

A bit pricier, but Mother of Runes can do a lot of work in a Voltron deck, letting you protect Wyleth, or letting Wyleth get past blockers, which is a lot of work for a 1 drop. If you use Brash Taunter, which is cheap ATM but will go back up, you can also run Pariah and Guilty Conscience, both cards are just stupid with Taunter. If you run Pariah, you could run something like Shielded by Faith, then anyone can be a great Pariah. Pariah is also good with any Theros Gods, or otherwise indestructible creatures, but most are pricey. Pyrohemia is another nice card, it's especially good if people tend to have smaller creatures than Wyleth, and lots of them. As long as you don't kill Wyleth, the card stays around as well. Pyrohemia gets a lot better if your Fiendlash is on Wyleth, each R lets him wallop an opposing player. You can also use Resourceful Defense or Nesting Grounds to put a Lifelink counter on Pyrohemia, there are a few white sources of those counters.

Cool deck, Wyleth does good work on a budget.

DreadKhan on Because Jared said so, and what Jared says, goes.

I suspect you'd benefit from a few more White mana sources, or things that can find them. Blighted Woodland and Myriad Landscape are readily cast ramp that can find plains for you. Krosan Verge is on colour here, and is probably worth running as well, as it can find non-basic lands for you, like the Kaldheim Snow Duals. There are also ramp spells that can find those Snow Duals, so it's not just about the pricier Fetch Lands. The relevant Snow Duals are Arctic Treeline Alpine Meadow and Highland Forest. Farseek can find Meadow at least, and things like Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Skyshroud Claim can find any that are Forests. These have no other upside, but getting access to White mana off of Three Visits is going to help. Most people just find Shock Lands with Farseek, but Snow Duals are very solid options to have.

The other thing that jumped out is the low amount artifact/enchantment hate. Cards like this are really useful in Commander, there is almost always a target, even if you draw a few of them. Viashino Heretic is good artifact hate on a stick, Devout Witness can hate on either, but is worse at it's job. You can also run Green options, which often sac the creature like Thrashing Brontodon or work as a Comes Into Play effect like Reclamation Sage. Since you have big creatures and love to have Jared get hit, Ulvenwald Tracker can arrange for Jared to get swatted by the biggest thing on the board every turn, either killing it and growing or just growing.

DreadKhan on Kaervek the friendship killer

1 year ago

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is bonkers with Coffers, as is any way to untap it like Deserted Temple. A bit pricey, but something to think about.

You could use Citadel of Pain to add some ongoing damage/work around counter magic, and Rite of the Raging Storm to create pressure on other players. Spellshock adds more damage, which should speed things up, serving as a miniature backup Kaervek. I think Captive Audience is downright hilarious. Gorilla Shaman is a reasonable 1 drop, and Viashino Heretic is pretty hostile to big artifacts. Rionya, Fire Dancer might fit.

CaptainToll on What are Fun Non-Legendary Cards …

Some artifacts in monored, that can be reasonably tutored with Goblin Engineer :

Liquimetal Coating : Combine with artifact removal, maybe Viashino Heretic , Goblin Tinkerer , Hellkite Tyrant and so on

Chaos Wand : let fate decide

Mycosynth Lattice : it's Liquimetal Coating Maxi

FormOverFunction I believe I saw adding Artificer's Hex to Bloodthirsty Blade , which is hilarious :D
