Quote from rogerandover »Oh, for a moment I thought we'd hit gold with the latest spoiler, Avacyn's Judgement, but if I'm understanding it correctly, then you'll only be able to target two targets, even when the madness is paided. Would have been lovely though...

So Drownyard Temple is making it into your Squee build? It's a sweet land for sure, but I don't think I'll be adding it to Squee but difinitely to some of my other decks.
Quote from Squirrely »I don't.. I can't even...
WHY didn't I see this deck before?! I'm a big mono red goober (in all formats, basically) and have tried multiple different mono red decks to good succes, but I've been disliking the direction my Ashling deck has gone lately.
More and more, my mono red control decks feel like artifact decks with a bit of red, so I've been actively researching fun red cards to get my red fix on. I've even started this thread. Someone suggested Squee, which sounded fun, and thus I stumbled upon this thread.
I've totally read the whole thread and am super excited to try a version of this list out. There's a couple of cards I really want to cram in, but as a whole this deck looks like this deck is pushing all the right buttons.
I'll start up a list and post it in this thread if you don't mind. I'd love to get some feedback from you guys.
In the meantime, I was wondering about a couple of cards you play or have played:
- Firestorm (cheap, but discarding multiple cards still seems like a hefty cost even in this deck)
- Tibalt (I have a foil, and the card just appeals to me. Was it super sucky?)
- Molten Psyche (how often do you get the Metalcraft off? Otherwise, Winds of Change seems better)
- Fork/Reverberate (I know you're aware of them and have chosen to not run them, but I couldn't find a specific reason for it. Are they just too low-impact?)
- Hammer of Bogardan (I remember playing this a long time ago, and it was better than I expected, but it just seems so expensive to recur.)
Have you tried Impact Resonance? Card seems like a blast. It's 'just' creature removal, but it's quite efficient. Maybe it's not what your deck tries to do though.
Quote from rogerandover »Welcome to the thread Squirrely - I actually saw your thread and wanted to suggest that you check this build out. I also stumbled upon d0su's deck a while ago, and wanted to do something familiar. I havn't looked back. Squee is an absolute blast to play! Looking forward to see your list
As for new spoilers, we got a new land, that might be worth trying: Geier Reach Sanitarium. It's should give us more value then opponents with Squee as the commander. Thoughts?
Quote from rogerandover »And now full spoiler is up! I see another recursion spell, which I think i'm going to put into my deck: Shreds of Sanity.
I think the new escalate mecanic is nice, but I still don't think Collective Defiance is something for me.
Quote from rogerandover »Cathartic Reunion...
They sure give R some drawpower.
Quote from rogerandover »Wow, a bunch of new cool items for Squee in this set, at least for me. All DFC's
Primal Amulet/Primal Wellspring - I'm actually not sure if this will pull it's weight, but it looks cool. Copying some burn spells is never a bad thing
Thaumatic Compass/Spires of Orazca - A Journey's Kite (which i don't run in the first place), but the Maze of Ith that also taps for mana seems like a welcomed land for my deck. I tend to get a lot of focus, since I don't run that many creatures. And searching for lands, which can either be played or sac'ed to Seismic Assault seems decent.
Vance's Blasting Cannons/Spitfire Bastion - An Outpost Siege (since I would only use only use the khans), but with added benefit to maybe get a Lightning Bolt on a land. Getting there might take some effort, but I think it will be worth it.

Pyromancer's Goggles and Ruby Medallion are both great here, so I could see this coming in replacing (or in addition to?) Helm of Awakening.
I am not certain on Vance's Blasting Cannons. The land side is phenomenal, basically Valakut #2, but I do not play Outpost Siege since it is just a bit slow and messes with my sequencing. The fact that you cannot play lands off of VBC probably means it is a pass for me, but I can definitely understand why it could be included.
Thaumatic Compass is an easy pass for my build, I think. Squee and Wheel effects generate the raw card advantage, and this deck already does a great job of hitting all its land drops. Don't really want a Maze of Ith; I'd rather just burn the creatures or hide behind Glacial Chasm.
No, the biggest card I am excited for is Star of Extinction. I can't wait to smash someone with Repercussion or Stuffy Doll or whatever. It probably replaces Inferno, I guess, but that makes me sad because Inferno was the card that really inspired the deck.
Also worth noting is Repeating Barrage, the new Hammer of Bogardan variant. I am actually looking at this really closely, since looping Hammer usually happens in the very late game, and if you have at least 13 mana, this new card outperforms Hammer, since you can recur and/or cast it multiple times in the same turn. I will have to pay attention to whether or not Squee is available to attack in those scenarios.
Quote from rogerandover »Recently, I've been playtesting on cockatrice with the changes, and boy do this deck still surprise me. And others too I guess I can't help myself to mention the most memorable game: a 3-player pod with Ruric Thar, the Unbowed and Obzedat, Ghost Coucil. The latter gets out Tree of Perdition on turn 2 after a turn 1 Sol Ring. And ofc I get targeted before his turn 4. I'm like, okay I'm losing, but that is actually a pretty funny card. Ozbedat then puts down The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale and commander comes out by turn 5. I'm not doing much, but I do have Terrain Generator and Armillary Sphere so I'm ramping a bit. Turn 6, put out Akroma, Angel of Fury morphed. Obzedats turn, he attacks me so I'm down to 8. Ruric hasn't been doing much, played his commader, which got removed by Obzedat, but then plays Scavening Ooze and removes Squee from my from my graveyard. My cheap chumpblocker now costs 5. Then he's plays Stranglehold and passes. I'm at 7 mana, need one to pay for Akroma, and wanted to cast Godo, Bandit Warlord to fetch Batterskull. Now I only have Stuffy Doll, which do give some kind of protection. I play it and pass. Obzedat comes into play, target Ruric, then plays Return to Dust, which removes my doll and Stranglehold, and the removes the Ooze with Vindicate. Ruric plays his commander, which doesn't worry me, because now I can play Godo, which I do. Next turn I move Batterskull onto Godo, attacks Obzedat gaining me 14 life, while he goes down to 15. Obzedat then plays All is Dust, leaving me Batterskull and Akroma which is still morphed. At my turn, I play Gaunlet of Might and attach Batterskull to Akroma, attacks Obzedat again, brinning him down to 5 and pass. Obzedat most be very salty at me, because he targets me with Identity Crisis and then scoops. Next turn I morph Akroma and Ruric also scoops.
I know this doesn't show any of the new cards, but in other games Primal Amulet have been great. A bit costly, but worth it. I've gotten Spitfire Bastion a couple of times, and that land is phenomable! It's other side is a bit bad, admittingly, but as of now, getting that land is worth it imo.
Quote from d0su »]What a battle of attrition! It sounds like the entire world was against you, lol. Congratulations!
I'll have to keep an eye on Vance's Blasting Cannons, the flip side is just so strong. But what do you think about Angrath's Marauders? Could it maybe stand in for one of the other creatures, like Coalhauler Swine?
