Diaochan Budget Commander - Jer Inspired

Postby Daaska » 05 Feb 2014, 18:06

So after seeing Jer's Diaochan deck on FN I had to make my own version and here it is! Hope there aren't too many of these floating around on here...

1 x Blasphemous Act
1 x Brand
1 x Burning Sands
1 x Goblin Game
1 x Hoarding Dragon
1 x Brimstone Volley

1 x Slagstorm
1 x Volt Charge
1 x Chandra, the Firebrand
1 x Devil's Play
1 x Hammer of Purphoros
1 x Illusionist's Bracers
1 x Fire Diamond
1 x Thornbite Staff
1 x Myojin of Infinite Rage
1 x Dangerous Wager
1 x Thieves' Auction
1 x Foriysian Totem
1 x Spire Barrage
1 x Lightning Greaves
1 x Xanthic Statue
1 x Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle
34 x Mountain

So I've not had chance to give the deck a proper test but the basic idea is essentially the same as the FN version, don't have targets for Diaochan's ability and kill all of the things. The all-star combo of the deck is Thornbite Staff with anything that gives shroud to Diaochan, having the ability to, in theory, destroy unlimited creatures for free and then animate your artifacts is living the dream.
Changes I would make would probably be putting in Akroma's Memorial, Sword of Ice and Fire, Sword of War and Peace, i.e. stuff to give my creatures protection from red. Obliterate would also probably see a spot, possibly with some other wrath effects or something to deal with indestructible. Sol Ring would be an auto-include if I owned one and given how heavy I am on artifacts I can get metalcraft on Etched Champion relatively easily so he'd probably see a spot (again, protection from red with Diaochan is glorious happy times). Some stuff is in just because of how fun it is, although Burning Sands always looked like such a dirty play I've held off casting it a couple of times...
Open to any and all suggestions, hope the post isn't too unwieldy,
I am also looking for inspiration for a Higure mono-blue ninjitstu deck with lots of crazy blue cards. (although given the black ninjitsu cards I might have to find a decent B/U commander)
Thoughts? :D

Well it's mono red, so Caged sun is a must. Seething Song and/or
Pyretic Ritual will add some more good ramp. I dunno how much ramp you might want, but i really suggest caged sun at the least.

I can't believe I forgot to add one ^^'
I think I might even have one floating about my random rares...
I'm not certain how much I like SS or PR, I need more permanent ramp solutions, gauntlet of might and gauntlet of power are other possibilities but like hell can I afford those.
