Or Twin Bolt, Twin Bolt, Arc Lightning. This needs further testing.

@Snap157, Yes and no. If my opponent is at 20 life it would fall a little short but if theyre at 18 or 19 it would work like Arc Lightning and help Vexing Devil get my opponent to 13 life. I do like its mana cost though.

I would start off with the following:

-2 Blazing Volley

+1 Lightning Bolt

+1 Flame Slash or Magma Jet or Arc Lightning or Fireblast

Also the other pauper dual-lands, to ensure consistency. Or even Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds would do, as well. And of course Ash Barrens but it's a few bucks

SB ideas

Move the Blazing Volley here, Pyroblast (absolute must-have, I'd go 4x), Smash to Smithereens, Flame Slash, Journey to Nowhere, Dawn Charm, Fragmentize

You have a nice looking deck CaptDan. I do really like what Arc Lightning can do for enrage triggers and I think I will incoporate it. Thanks!

Hey! Nice deck.

Check mine : Dinosaurs Enrage (Rivals of Ixalan). You will see some enrage combos. I use Arc Lightning for example, to activate enrage.

I'd be tempted to splash red burn into this and capitalize on the card Willbreaker. Would certainly speed up the frustration of your opponent. Just a thought :)

The likes of Twin Bolt and Arc Lightning tend to be super effective with that synergy.

Thanks. I use Arc Lightning, which is better. But thanks for the feedback!

Also for #2, it's only being targeted by Arc Lightning once (even though you're assigning the full damage to it), so it of course only triggers once. Less intuitive would be Seeds of Strength which would actually target the creature multiple times (if you chose to do so). Even in this case, Heroic only triggers once because the event of casting a spell that targets Satyr Hoplite is only happening once, even though the event of targeting Satyr Hoplite happens three times.
