Always looking to improve as a player and deck builder!

The Dead Kennedys are cool. (:

I don't think there's anything strictly out of theme for the deck, which makes finding something to get rid of pretty hard. That said, Curse of Clinging Webs, Curious Herd, or Press for Answers could work.

  • Curse of Clinging Webs Not all of your removal is destroy spells, but between combat and other players it's probably still mostly worth it.

  • Curious Herd can probably be situational sometimes. Kind of a meh reason to take it out, but it could end up being a dead draw if no one is playing a lot of artifacts.

  • Press for Answers I'm reluctant to suggest getting rid of it, but I need a third item for this list for the purposes of symmetry and consistency.

Aside from that, I have other upgrades I thought of.

Try out Biovisionary. It's a cheap win for sure, but it's not an infinite combo. Venom Connoisseur is fun, too. Suddenly every creature you control has deathtouch, more or less ruining your opponent's defense.

As for a card to boot, I'd say either Gala Greeters and/or Guardian Augmenters. Neither of them is bad, but neither of them is superb.

Not to mention that Manamorphose would also trigger Clever Lumimancer + Kiln Fiend for a free buff.

You might be able to pick the top three effects of Demonic Pact and then hand it off to someone else using your Bazaar Trader.

Really bizzare deck, I love it!

Ooh, paying for a spell with life isn't a bad idea Bulldawg1310. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hey, namyarb3! Sometimes non-basic land can serve purposes other than being split mana.

Cards like Goblin Burrows, Den of the Bugbear, or Castle Embereth would definitely work in a goblin spam deck like this. Dwarven Mine or Path of Ancestry might also work, but are probably unnecessary.

More often than not, cards like these are for mono-colored decks, just as a mana dump for when you run out of things to play.

Thanks for the suggestion Saccox!

I've been waffling on that card for a while. The only downside is that I can't pay for the extort ability with it. Then again, the free life gain is really tempting.

May 12, 2022 9:08 p.m.

Ah, thanks legendofa.

That's what I figured, but I wanted to double-check anyway.

May 12, 2022 6:25 p.m.

You should try out Chromatic Star, Scrap Trawler, or Myr Retriever.

Reinforced Ronin says "At the beginning of your end step, return Reinforced Ronin to its owner's hand," and I was wondering if it applies to the graveyard, too.

Thanks for the suggestions KongMing!

I'll probably throw in Skyguard and Phalanx (Leaving out Athlete and changing the mana mix to make white mana more available for Feather, the Redeemed and Phalanx).

The five mana for Ignitions is pretty costly, but considering it's enough to kill everyone else at the table it's worth it for sure. That said, I'll probably keep a pair of Thuds in my sideboard just in case/

May 11, 2022 2:34 p.m.

Ah, fair enough! I'd say I'm halfway between casual and competitive, so I can definitely get not making a deck the best for the sake of a theme or just fun in general.

Is Wall of Torches the best early game filler card for a dragon deck? No. Did I put four of it in every iteration of my dragon deck just because my table thought it was funny? Absolutely.

A small sidenote, WoT is such a weird card. A red wall is bizarre to begin with, but how is this inanimate object dealing damage? Do... Do creatures just walk into it? Also, it's not an artifact, which is even odder. I have many questions and so few answers.

This deck feels really good at churning out low-cost enchantments, so any constellation effect would probably be pretty good. Setessan Champion is good since it gets buffed and gives you more draw (which you're clearly fond of), and Archon of Sun's Grace is a good way to make an army of 2/2 flyers. Hallowed Haunting or Katilda, dawnheart martyr would also totally work.

I would also suggest something to reward you for all this draw, but all of the cards I can think of to do this are blue or on paper. I know for a fact white can do this, but Idunno.

Honestly, this looks like a borderline life gain deck, so throwing in Archon along with Nexus Wardens (Or that one white spirit from the D&D set whose name I cannot recall for the life of me), Heliod, Sun-Crowned, and maybe Cleric Class or Griffin Aerie to tie it all together. Granted, that's quite a few new cards and it may as well be a new deck, lol.

P.S. I've been meaning to make a lifegain/enchantment deck for a while, so that probably explains the two paragraphs of cards, lol. P.P.S Colossification is always fun.

I would assume it means the latter, if only because it would be pretty broken to pay three mana for this enchantment and get a 2/2 flying spirit (eventually turning them all into 5/5's) for each spell you cast.

May 10, 2022 12:47 p.m.

That said, any Furnace of Wrath effect is usually going to make a deck go crazy. Insult / Injury or Quest for Pure Flame might work well, too.

May 10, 2022 10:33 a.m.

I'd absolutely build a Boros burn deck, but that's just because I love Boros decks. Not to mention that Soulfire Grand Master or Radiant Scrollwielder will make your burn deck into an unkillable machine.

May 10, 2022 10:23 a.m.

This for sure deserves an upvote!

I was originally going to make a Baloth Packhunter deck until I realized that Baloth Packhunter is a card only in MTGA. Timberpack Wolf will have to do.

Tell me if there's any blue or green cards that could work better!

May 9, 2022 7:33 p.m.

I like the deck and I'm probably going to build something similar, but I do find it odd that you have all of these different singles instead of full sets. That said, I'm also not familiar with the original guild kits, so if they were commander/brawl, I suppose that would make sense.

Thanks for the suggestions Apollo_Paladin! I'm definitely throwing those into the deck. Most of the reason I didn't throw Colossus Hammer in is because I only really had Bruenor Battlehammer to cheat it on to something, but Resolute Strike would fit right in, since most of my creatures are warriors.
