How it Works

Please Help This Deck: I need answers to U/W Control, Burn, LD, and White Weenie. I was thinking to SB Yamabushi's Flame for U/W Meloku and WW.

Cloudhoof Kaminari Deck

This is the original Cloudhoof Kaminari deck. The first to use Cloudhoof Kirin Buy in conjunction with Ire of Kaminari Buy instead of relying soley on Dampen Thought Buy. And since Mdigibou claims he thought of the idea, and he's one of my few friends, I give him inspirational credit for the idea. (Although I still think I thought it up).

Once 9th Edition comes out, Traumatize Buy will surely be added. I hypothesize, that once that happens, the "Kaminari" decks will be tournament ready. But with Cloudhoof, it's the closest we can get right now.

How it's Played

This is basically my version of the Popular Ire of Kaminari Arcane Decks. I've obviously added Cloudhoof Kirin Buy for greater Ire damage, and thusly quicker wins. Use burn spells and draw spells in the beginning to burn your opponent and build a big arcane graveyard. Use Draw spells until you get either Eerie Procession Buy or Ire of Kaminari Buy, then play the Ire at the right moment for the maximum damage possible.

Play Cloudhoof Kirin Buy, with the help of Desperate Ritual, to boost the Ire even more by decking yourself when you play Arcane draw cards (such as Ideas Unbound Buy for {U}{U} which puts a total of 6 cards in the graveyard, boosting Ire damage by a maximum of six).

Bascially, after two Ire of Kaminari Buy's you'll most likely have the win. Use draw spells before playing the Ire, with Cloudhoof in play for extra boost, and a Desperate Ritual Buy if needed to pay the {3}{R} for the Ire of Kaminari Buy.

5th Turn Win Scenario (Moderately likely):

1st Turn: Play a Mountain. Play Lava Spike Buy. Opp: 17 Life
2nd Turn: Play and Island. Play Lava Spike Buy. Play Reach Through Mists Buy. Opp: 14 Life.
3nd Turn: Play Mountain. Play Glacial Ray Buy. Play Reach Through Mists BuyOpp: 12 Life.
4th Turn: Play Island. Play Desperate Ritual Buy (w/ {R}{R}).
Play Cloudhoof Kirin Buy.
5th Turn: Play Any Land. Play Dampen Thought Buy on yourself (adding 7 cards to your graveyard). Play Desperate Ritual Buy (adding 3 card to the graveyard) to pay for the Ire of Kaminari Buy.
Maximum Ire Damage: 20
Minimum Ire Damage: 9

(Based on The Maximum and Minimum amount of Arcane cards in the graveyard.)

If all the cards that were discarded with Cloudhoof weren't Arcane, which is somewhat likely, and the total damage doesn't amount to 12, swing for four with the flying Kirin.
