Description

Main Deck Tech: Utilizes [[Fires of Invention]](Fries) to setup for powerful turns casting two threats per turn, or casting a threat and answering an opposing one. This gets even better with another new addition from Eldraine, [[Fae of Wishes]]. We're able to pull unique answers from the sideboard such as [[Casualties of War]], [[Ashiok, Dream Render]], [[Unmoored Ego]], and [[Kaya's Wrath]] because [[Fires of Invention]] opens up other colors! Normally we win through [[Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God]] -8(easier to setup thanks to [[Planewide Celebration]]) or through [[Chandra, Awakened Inferno]] damage. [[Castle Vantress]] allows us to mana dump and setup scrys during the upkeep giving us a better card to cast and renewing our pass for the value train. We include various answers to both planeswalkers and creatures such as [[Angrath's Rampage]] and [[Bedevil]] to make sideboarding versus control easier; this entails not having to sideboard out more than [[Legion's End]] when facing creatureless control. 

 

Sideboard Tech: So, most of this section will cover what to grab with [[Fae of Wishes]] and what to actually "sideboard" between games. During 99% of your sideboarding phases, 0 cards will be brought in. I repeat, 99% of the time, no cards will be brought in. This is mainly because we want most of the cards to stay fetchable by [[Fae of Wishes]]. [[The Wanderer]] solves the [[Wicked Wolf]] problem while dodging [[Veil of Summer]]. It's also super funny with [[Command the Dreadhorde]]. 

 

Esper Stax is part of the 1%. During this matchup you'll sideboard like this: 

-1 [[Fires of Invention]]

-2 [[Legion's End]]

-3 [[Ritual of Soot]]

 

+1 [[Chandra, Awakened Inferno]]

+1 [[The Elderspell]] or [[Command the Dreadhorde]]

+2 [[Ashiok, Dream Render]]

+2 [[Unmoored Ego]]

 

The idea here is to weaken the opponent's [[Unmoored Ego]]. Bringing in an extra [[Chandra, Awakened Inferno]] and sideboarding out one of your [[Fires of Invention]] allows you to wish for [[Fires of Invention]] later while also adding a threat. [[Ashiok, Dream Render]] exiles their graveyard making it impossible to recur artifacts and enchantments, and enables mill as a win-con. [[Unmoored Ego]] allows us to remove their [[Doom Foretold]] or [[Dance of the Manse]]. Usually Dance is the first target, but [[Doom Foretold]] can ruin a game. Normally it prevents us setting up [[Fires of Invention]] or a Planeswalker because we'd have to sacrfice it before gaining any value. [[Thought Erasure]] their first [[Doom Foretold]],[[Dance of the Manse]], or [[Thought Erasure]], and we should be good to go!

 

Field of the Dead/Golos is the other 1%:

-2 [[Ritual of Soot]]

-2 [[Angrath's Rampage]]

 

+2 [[Unmoored Ego]]

+2 [[Ashiok, Dream Render]]

 

[[Angrath's Rampage]] is weak against [[Tamiyo, Collector of Tales]], and we can always grab [[Ritual of Soot]] from the sideboard with Fae to answer a huge board. Or, if we have [[Fires of Invention]] out, we can simply grab [[Kaya's Wrath]]. Sideboarding out the [[Angrath's Rampage]] also allows us to wish for it as well. If they have two or less [[Field of the Dead]] this is normally the go to target for [[Unmoored Ego]]. This is situational, and will have to be felt out. Sometimes it's better to name [[Hydroid Krasis]] or [[Golos]]. [[Casualties of War]] can answer one [[Field of the Dead]], but usually it's quite hard to come back from a swarm of respawing zombies. 

 

Reanimator is the other other 1% in which we actually sideboard:

 

-2 [[Ritual of Soot]]

-2 [[Legion's End]]

-1 [[Fires of Invention]]

 

+1 [[Chandra, Awakened Inferno]]

+2 [[Ashiok, Dream Render]]

+2 [[Unmoored Ego]]

 

As always, we leave a copy each of [[Ashiok, Dream Render]] and [[Unmoored Ego]] so we can wish for it with [[Fae of Wishes]]. We also board out a [[Fires of Invention]] to keep it safe from the opponent's potential [[Unmoored Ego]]. First [[Unmoored Ego]] Target = [[Agent of Treachery]]. Then target whatever else we see as a threat after looking through their deck.

How are you finding this deck? Whats your winrate? Currently playing grixis fires as well, but I don't run the fae of wishes, it seems cool I'm just not sure if it works without fires, feel like there should be a chromatic latern somewhere around here. Also how is rampage working in this deck?
