    Earthshaker Khenra 1R Rare
    Creature - Jackal Warrior
    Haste
    When ~ enters the battlefield, target creature with power less than or equal to ~'s power can't block this turn.
    Eternalize 4RR
    2/1


    2/1 with haste with an ETB that stops 1 creature with 2 or less power from blocking you. This will kick ass in limited but I'm still working on my burn skills to find out if this is a budget option for Goblin Guide as a haste that swings for 2 or if the SOB actually has a spot in the modern version.

    Eternalize is cool but if we are ever at 6 mana and our opponant isn't dead, we are.

    I was surfing through my subs on Youtube and I came across this deck last night from Channel Fireball.

    https://www.channelfireball.com/videos/channel-mengucci-legacy-moon-stompy/

    With the exception of the legacy cards that we cannot play, there was one card in there that peaked my interest that I do not think we have discussed among the Mountainfolk.

    There is a single copy of Quicksmith Rebel.

    I think it's a spicy little card and i'm laughing a little bit at the fact that our deck shuts people down with Ensnaring Bridge and then we use that bridge to beat them over their heads. Not sure if it will make it into my list personally but I felt it was worth sharing with you all :).

    What do you do to gain an edge in the mirror then?


    Probably a combination of smart play and Lightning Helix/Deflecting Palm. I only play Kor Firewalker because there's a ton of Burn players near me. There are tradeoffs that have to be made with your sideboard. It may be a wise decision to shore up another difficult matchup and battle the mirror on the back of playing better than your opponent with less narrow sideboard cards.


    It's for this exact reason that my version of boros burn keeps 2 ensnaring bridges (subbed out the skullcracks) main deck because my meta usually has 20+ players and at least 7 of them play merfolk or some explosive aggro zoo build that I simply cannot race even with a hand full of gas.

    is anybody able 2 do a breakdown of all current format burn matches. how 2 play + what 2 watch for. it a lot of deck but it help new burn players like myself


    elconquistador1985's burn list on Tapped out has some great primers and articles attached to it that helped me a lot when I was first starting out with burn six or so months ago. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/18-04-15-naya-burn/

    I'd also recommend checking out the subreddit for our deck at www.reddit.com/r/lavaspike. You can search through the posts and find some great sequencing advice as well. Hope this helps Smile

    Winner: 72 Person 1K Event

    I never lost a round, my mountainfolk kin. Not one. There's so much to share - get ready: (2) Youtube videos of the semi-finals and finals, 10 minute online interview about the deck's evolution, Tournament report, and what I have to believe will be a firestorm in the Modern Magic community - a heretofore completely unknown deck claiming champion standing in a premier event. Ooooooh, Yeah!

    But, for now: here's the decklist


    It's Red Banner Day in the House of the Mountain Folk!!!




    Excellent news man. Congratulations on your victory Smile

    If you want a solid and painless mana base you can try this freaky Domain Burn! :p Cool

    When you say "painless mana base", I think you actually mean "burn yourself as much as your opponent" lol

    I will probably run a few of those board wipe enchant destroys. I hate diluting my deck, but I also don't want to lose to the same deck over and over again!


    I have the same feeling when it comes to my meta. In the last couple weeks, there have been 4 more players that are now playing merfolk and I have all but stopped playing burn at that store because i'm rather tired of going 1 - 3 every week. I am almost guaranteed to run into two merfolk players a night and I still boast that it is our worst matchup next to ad nauseum.

    As for the 'in/out' section of sideboarding that was requested by a couple people, I will kick that idea around - feels like a little too 'paint by numbers' to me.



    The paint by numbers doesn't bother me at all to be honest. I just want the most information possible that's available in order to produce the best result with our deck. It feels weird calling ourselves a sideboard deck and then having insufficient sideboard information. I will work on a template for our sideboard given the information that we currently have.

    Unfortunately my buddy didn't fair well with the deck yesterday, going 2-2 drop for the day in a 84 player/ 7 round qualifier for the Invitational here in Columbus OH.
    His recap to me was brief, beating RG Scapeshift, loosing to Affinity, beating Jund in a tight match, then loosing to Jund in a close 3 game match. Said the deck felt good in the metagame, just didn't draw the right pieces when needed. He had gone back to the creatureless version, running the Rabblemasters in the side...when I talk to him I'll see if he feels they should stay there or not based on his experience.
    I'm hoping to get more practice with the deck in coming weeks as well as look at Standard now that there is some info on the new metagame. Don't want to play Mardu, so need to see what happens in knocking that deck down a peg or two.


    Sometimes that's just the way she goes unfortunately. I have gone 4 - 0 at my LGS with this deck and the week after, playing the same guys, I went 0 - 3.

    Sidebar: If you're playing Standard, Red Deck Wins is positioned quite well in the current meta.

    Well after all the hype and high starting/prerelease price Harsh Mentor dropped to about half its price and now it can be had for $4 in some places. It still can be a useful card but that says more sideboard then main deck. As each set comes and goes I always wait to see what I can add to the tool box. Main deck stuff is always tough to fit in new stuff and side board stuff is always fluctuating depending on meta/bannings/new decks. One of the great things about Burn is that we have lots of options/variations, few limitations and its not like some decks where getting 1 card banned sinks the deck (knock on wood Grin ).



    At that price, I'm going to jump the gun and buy a playset by the end of the week. Who knows how the meta will shift and it's a great toolbox card even if it isn't incredibly relevant currently.

    Is Engineered Explosives preferred to Ratchet Bomb because it is one turn faster?

    What card should we drop so that we can add in Protean Hulk now that it has been unbanned?

    I like this idea of streamlining our deck but this seems a risky move and I don't own any baubles so it's a $200 "maybe" currently. I will have to see more results before taking the plunge on this one.


    edit:

    I was looking through your re-write of the primer Raystack and it is fantastic. Very informative with the right amount of humor to pull the reader in. If I may make a suggestion (and I for one would be willing to contribute), we are a sideboard deck and our sideboard section is a little lackluster. It also contains many cards that we do not use in our sideboard. I feel that the sideboard guide needs to be revised with an IN/OUT list per matchup so that we may use it as a resource before attending FNM's and the like. It's easier to memorize a sideboard list for the decks in our meta instead of memorizing all the cards in all the decks and knowing them well enough to perform optimally in rounds 2 and 3.

    Please don't take this as a harsh criticism because I want nothing more than for people to know the feeling of our prison bars closing on them and setting them ablaze within.

    Champion of Rhonas is almost strictly inferior to Elvish Piper, which is already not great

    Manglehorn seems like a fine inclusion. However, Reclamation Sage had Elves synergy (Wirewood Symbiote and Priest of Titania mainly), so I think it's a pretty close call between the two. I don't think it's necessary to run both however. I'd say the faster the meta, the better Manglehorn becomes. If games get grindy, repeatedly bouncing Reclamation Sage is pretty powerful.


    I agree. I do think Manglehorn is a good card but anytime that I would be fetching a 3cmc creature, 99% of the time I am going for Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Eternal Witness, Reclamation Sage, or Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.
