Warstorm Surge

Enchantment

Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, it deals damage equal to its power to any target (creature, player or planeswalker).

I used to run Warstorm Surge but really don't like the fact it costs 6 mana to cast. I know it combos well with Be'Lakor, the Dark Master, but it's too expensive and I'd much rather have the 3-drop Imprisoned in the Moon to completely shut down someone else's commander (until they can remove the enchantment). I love Wound Reflection also but, exactly like with Wound Reflection, the 6 mana needed to double up on damage/life loss is why I don't have it in the deck, either.

Thank you for the suggestion, and just know it's not missed on me, I've just played quite a few games where I had Wound Reflection in my hand and found it more of hindrance as opposed to an asset given every one in my pod plays 8+ power level decks.

Yeah, right now I'm looking for things to trim out in order to add more lands and mana rocks. I think Goblin Bombardment is better than Impact Tremors as it isn't so much always looking to deal more damage to opponents, but could for example, make blocks harder/less profitable (especially if Cathars' Crusade isn't on field), help protect the major pieces that need to attack. And if The Master isn't on field, squeeze more value out of myriad tokens and Mirkwood Bats. Warleader's Call will probably be a maybe and potential replacement for Warstorm Surge to bring down the mana curve.

I've been aware of Reconnaissance but not super sure if I want to go through the effort of getting a copy for $12 just yet. (Pretty much all the other cards on the list with that kind of price tag are ones I already own from grabbing in drafts and such).

TBH 99% of the time I go infinite without having Shivan Gorge, people scoop since I basically can blow up any nonland permanent until the end of time while having infinite life. So they rather give up that endure the drawn-out beating. You can add Warstorm Surge or Impact Tremors-type of cards however I found those cards to really not do anything outside of being a win-con and the deck needs a super high number of cards that provide immediate value.

Its one reason Im super happy with LCI because it gives this deck a bunch of strong ETB creatures that can also beat down. Them being dinosaurs just adds to the flavor lol

Cast Down is one of those cards I always add to black decks and then always end up cutting. Will probably do the same with this one. Warstorm Surge is great and will probably be added. Would love to add Terror of the Peaks but $30+ is a bit much...

You've got a really nice, disciplined, low curve. If it were me, I'd switch out Impact Tremors for Warstorm Surge for the extra oomph and the removal option. I suppose if you're getting a lot of small tokens per turn the Tremors damage will really add up, so maybe swap out Cast Down? Five damage from a dragon token entering will kill a lot of things, and the option of sending it to the face might be worth the times where the five damage can't kill a non-legendary--counterbalanced by Cast Down not killing legendarys but perhaps five damage would.

Hey Krayvyn. Nice to see you again. I agree with Profet93 about Lurking Predators. It is more at home in a deck with a high % of creatures. I used to run in in Samut for example, which has about 50% creatures, and now it's in Trelassara, which only has 1/3 creatures but has a lot of top-deck manipulation.

If I really wanted to add it I would probably remove the other 6 CMC do-nothing enchantment Warstorm Surge.

For sure, man, glad to help!

Yeah, this latest iteration is a big step forward. I think now would be a great time to discuss potential cuts.

First up, I'd definitely cut both True Conviction & Warstorm Surge under the basis that they can't be cheated out via your Commander, or retrieved from the graveyard once destroyed. Replacing them with things to streamline your strategy like Gamble, Diabolic Intent or Final Parting would be wise imo. Tutors that pair well with Reanimator are great.

Speaking of pairing well with Reanimator, I'd so recommend replacing some of your card draw pieces like Firemane Commando, Mangara, the Diplomat & perhaps even Bloodgift Demon with things that will draw you cards, ramp Treasures & feed your graveyard simultaneously upon resolution like Pirate's Pillage, Seize the Spoils & Big Score. Tectonic Reformation could also draw hella cards here, considering you're running 36 lands!

Personally I would cut both Taurean Mauler & Boros Charm for more Combo utility. Ancient Gold Dragon + Dragon Tempest will kill all of your opponents from 40 life if you roll like...a 12 or higher? I forget the math, but the fact that they're also just great cards for this Commander anyway make them worth considering. Also, I really can't overstate how powerful Ancient Copper Dragon is here, if you roll anything higher than like a 3 it gives a CRAZY advantage. Especially since you're running Revel in Riches & Hellkite Tyrant! You should just proxy it if you can't afford one lol, it's that good.

As far as getting your Commander on the field a bit faster...I'd suggest replacing Sword of the Animist with Chromatic Lantern & maybe adding a Jeweled Amulet as well.

Hard removal is needed for some decks. I wanted to avoid it but things like Sire Of Insanity and Warstorm Surge are too problematic to leave out
