Said on Diesel Driven Burn...

#1

glennkenobi This is my Burn deck, a work in progress for sure. It plays very different if a game goes longer, but it is technically able to threaten early wins. I don't think there is much else relevant, but if you ever want to try a different kind of burn, there is this.

Well, the way I use Fireblast in burn is to finish people off with 1 or 2 casts for free, after I've used up my mana for the turn. They usually just sit in your hand until your opponent gets to 4 (or 8), then they lose immediately for no additional mana. Very rarely they can be hardcast (if you get flooded, it's slightly better than a Lightning Bolt), and if you absolutely need to hit a target for 4 at instant speed (and have no mana), this will let you do it... You might still lose if you are land screwed afterwards, but this gives you an option.

I could be wrong, but the ability to cast Fireblast for free is pretty good with Monastery Swiftspear . If you play Mountain + Swiftspear > Mountain + Swiftspear + 1 Burn Spell > Mountain + 3 Burn Spells + Fireblast would give 31 damage on turn 3 (if you are on the draw), which leaves you 3 burn spells that can remove blockers. YMMV, but I think I'd want the chance of a 4 spell turn 3 with this deck. If instead you play only burn spells and mountains, you are at 18 damage on turn 3, and have used 9 cards do it (counting lands). Again, if you are on the draw Fireblast can close out the game that turn.

Have you considered Fireblast in here?

Time of Need , Mwonvuli Beast Tracker , Shared Summons , and Primal Command can all find Rhonas on the cheap, or something else if you need it. Also, doesn't Harmonize feel a bit small in here? Ohran Frostfang can draw a similar number of cards for similar mana, and if you actually have Trample on your creatures, Deathtouch is bonkers to add, you kill every creature with 1 damage... so Multani with Trample and Deathtouch becomes a 1 shot kill, even if they can block him with several creatures. Funny if nobody saw it coming anyways! You might consider War Room and Bonders' Enclave for a bit more draw, I doubt you'll notice they don't make G, I certainily don't.

+1, great deck! Feel free to look at my The (mono) Green Revolution, it might have a few cards you could consider. Multani is one of the funnier Voltron builds, and quite strong.

Silverglade Pathfinder plays surprisingly well in here, never hurts to have a way to pitch my key creatures for Meren.

Have you considered Yavimaya Granger as a ramp dork? Free self-sac is a nice perk in Meren. Then again, maybe don't be like me and cut a land for it? haha. Not sure if Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire would play better than Fierce Empath . Varragoth has to live I suppose, but assuming he isn't killed (likely costing someone a creature), you can re-use him, and the first use works even if he dies. Both are 3 mana as well, but Varragoth requires mana to Boast. I'm not sure if Varragoth's tutor ability is good enough to qualify as 'expensive', but I don't think he's what most people have in mind when they want to ban 'good tutors', but maybe in Meren I could see someone thinking it is too much.

Cool deck!

Farseek is worse than Nature's Lore in a deck like this, or Three Visits .
