Two of these and two memnights = 5 mama on turn 1

And it only cost you four cards.

WHY IS THIS NOT BLACK!


 


It flavorfully should have been black, sacrificing guys into mana power is a completely and utterly black thing.


Note soldevi adnate sacrifice burnt offering etc.....


even the name could be black. R&D's only theoretical reason for sticking it red is because they think that "mana accell belongs in red" now even though it NEVER made any sense what so ever.

Then they proceed to still massively overcost black cards because dark ritural existed once upon a time.

This makes me rather annoyed.

turn 1 ornithopter>>sac>>>>this>>>Kruin outlaw = turn 2 3/3 double striker that can only be double blocked?

Shenanigans, this card.

Shenanigans.

Guess now we know why Ornithopter wasn't in M12.

With only Memnite available the RW shenanigans that could have been possible are too unlikely.

Glint Hawk, Memnite, Memnite, Mox Opal, Mountain, Infernal Plunge(sac Memnite), Kruin Outlaw

Attack for minimum 5 potentially 9 T2.

GG?
This is not janky. Compared with pyretic ritual this makes one more mana and is cheaper to cast than seething song. With help from mana dorks you get 5 mana on turn 2.

Lol, I so want to play this in eternal with veteran explorer...

This card wants you to believe that it is good, when in reality it is very bad.

First, you need a creature to sacrifice...which more than likely requires another card from your hand.

Second, for those of you who want to use memnite on turn 1, good luck getting that perfect hand. I think it is a bad idea to build around a utility card such as this. This cannot compare to dark ritual in the least bit.

Are you making a casual mill deck? Please read.
Control is the key of a mill deck. You should free up your mana as much as possible so that you can respond to whatever your opponent is doing. Having some way to remove threats, both real and percieved, is necessary to survival. Real threats are those that are already on the field, and are something a simple unsummon or doom blade can remove. Percieved threats are those that aren't on the field, something a simple duress or counterspell can deal with. Controlling the board will allow your mill deck to continuously perform, if you use permanent style mill, that is. One-Shot Mill spells are something you should avoid. You can toss tome scours at your opponent until your hand runs out, but that isn't going to be enough to mill them to death. With 1-shot mill spells, like tome scour, you have to treat them like burn spells. Therefore, the only "good" 1-shot mill spells are sanity grinding (in the right deck) and mind funeral. Try to find more permanent styles of milling, like memory erosion, hedron crab, and curse of the bloody tome, so that you don't have to waste your mana each turn doing something that those permanents can do with a single mana/turn investment. Keeping your mana open allows you to respond with control elements. ​Traumatize Rant​. Traumatize is a terrible card for a multitude of reasons. First, it costs 5 to cast, which is a large investment for a mill deck. Milling half a library sounds neat, but if you do the math, it really isn't that much. An average 60 card deck starts with drawing 7 cards. Then, barring any draw spells on their end, or ramp on yours, 5 turns will go by, where they draw 5 more cards, leaving 48 in the deck. Unless they had a deck with more than 60 cards, or you ramped it out, the most you'll ever mill with a single Traumatize on turn 5 is 24 cards. That's not too shabby, but hang on, there's more! If they drew any additional cards or if they were milled before turn 5, that number will be much lower. In addition, any more Traumatize's you draw will only mill less and less as the game goes on...which is the point of a mill deck. My whole point on Traumatize is the it is NOT worth the 5 mana investment, not even with haunting echoes. You can mill more than 24 before turn 5...which you can then cast the echoes. If you look at a mill deck like a burn deck, you'll notice that it takes longer to win with mill than with burn. For example, lightning bolt costs 1 and does 3 out of the 20 damage needed to win (barring any lifegain or damage prevention). For mill, that same investment of 1 would have to mill 9 cards out of an average 60 card deck to be the equivilent of lightning bolt. The problem is that there is no mill card that can do that...except hedron crab, over a period of time. The initial investment of 1 will pay off in 3 more land drops to make the crab equal to a bolt. However, the crab nets you more mill beyond those 3 land drops, making it better as the game draws on. Other cards, like curse of the bloody tome, are excellent ways of milling an opponent because the initial investment of is all you have to pay in order to put your opponent on a clock. All you have to do is stay alive, which is the true goal of a mill strategy. There are other ideas for mill decks that are specific to certain types of strategies. Combo mill decks can mill an entire player's library out from under them. Secondary mill strategies are usually tied to another strategy, like drowner of secrets in a merfolk deck, or halimar excavator in an ally deck. Milling can be done in certain decks that are able to ramp out enough mana to make use of the higher costing mill spells, like using 16 post to pay for X on sands of delirium or for ambassador laquatus. Multiplayer mill decks are even tougher to build, but can be done. Being a slower environment, it is easier to ramp in multiplayer, allowing for big X spells, like mind grind, to be useful. Consuming aberration is another star player. The more straightforward strategy is to use mesmeric orb and dreamborn muse while being the only deck at the table that can deal with it. There are always new strategies coming out with each set, so check gatherer for any new mill cards that you find to be the most fun for you! Now you can say that you haven't fallen into the trap that most new players fall into when they build their first mill deck!

Have you tried deodorant?
How do you plan to cast hellkite?
Chancellor of the Forge, for all you 4-for-1 card disadvantage people.

Here's your god-draw:
Chancellor of the Forge x2
This x2, or x1 and a different red ritual
Mountain
Geosurge
Furyborn Hellkite

12/12 Flyer on turn 1.
turn 1 or 2 urabrask is going to be nasty, it just snuffs aggro
Red Culling the Weak that produces one less mana.

(Did culling the weak really need to be nerfed?  It has a lot of hoops to jump through...).

This card really doesn't impress me; spending 2 extra cards for 2 extra mana, and most of the time you need to spend additional mana on one of those cards first.

Well...except it DOES seem decent with Past in Flames (correct me if I'm wrong, but PiF reads "The flashback cost is equal to its mana cost", so...that means you don't have to pay the sacrifice cost when you flash it back from the graveyard?)

Cats land on their feet. Toast lands peanut butter side down. A cat with toast strapped to its back will hover above the ground in a state of quantum indecision.

How do you plan to cast hellkite?

Geosurge makes seven mana, and Gut Shot will provide the damage for bloodthirst.  It's impractical, but it's theoretically possible.
Oh, you meant instead. On the draw to me meant topdeck it after myr.

I'm glad this card exists.

This *may* just make Yawgwin V.2 Standard playable, provided you have some other mana accel and some way to drop the deathblast into the grave.

It flavorfully should have been black, sacrificing guys into mana power is a completely and utterly black thing.

I agree, there sense of flavor seems to be off on this one, really not sure who is thinking of this stuff. Maybe it is the same guy that thought Burnt Offereing should be a black card.

Interesting, I do like sacing things in red for stuff, and this is an easy way to get that morbid trigger.

'if that creature is a virgin, add to your mana pool instead.'
I guess if you need to kill a 1 toughness creature that your opponent simply refuses to block your Goblin Arcinist with, I guess this would be an acceptable use for that card (and ramp your mana that turn)

I think they deliberately nerfed this ritual because of Yawgwin in Standard. It's still pretty good, though.

Embrace imagination.
