Arjun, the Shifting Flame Discussion

Cool commander and theme - nice list!

Some cards that came to mind that might be helpful to test:

Happy brewing!

Nice build! I recently made a coin deck myself using Arjun, the Shifting Flame as my general so I can find Krark's Thumb quicker. I like your general choice and will try it out.

A few quick suggestions:

The Locust God works really well with Arjun, the Shifting Flame and/or Mindmoil. It will also work really well with wheel effects and anything else that draws cards which will give you insects.

You may find that you do not have the necessary critical mass of instants and sorceries for spell slinging payoff cards like Metallurgic Summonings.

This kind of deck can be a lot of fun so I hope it serves you well. Check out my Izzet deck, Shifting Into High Gear (Primer) if you would like some more ideas.

Arjun, the Shifting Flame would be an awesome addition, Chasm Skulker too. I want to pick them up and give them a try!

Arjun, the Shifting Flame may be a creature you like to help with the explosive turns. Also, Chasm Skulker helps recover your board in the event of a board wipe. Especially if Impact Tremors is on the battlefield.

I think you could do without Ixidron andMalignus; they do not seem to fit to your strategy. Arjun, the Shifting Flame and Murder of Crows are nice, but I think these could be replaced with more useful creatures too. Some ideas:

There are more expensive cards I could recommend, but since you're on a budget ...As for other wheel effects, try Reforge the Soul.

Happy gaming!

P.S.: Would appreciate some feedback on one of my decks, if you have time!

This build looks solid, but doesn't seem to take full advantage of old Niv. By loops I assume you are avoiding Curiosity on purpose, but what about more wheel effects? Arjun, the Shifting Flame seem like a better choice than Nin, the Pain Artist, or maybe even Dragon Mage?
Also I've seen Fevered Visions do work, and it's a little better than Dictate of Kruphix. Also Rhystic Study seems good here.
Hope you have a blast with this deck, looks like a fun one!

How do you feel about how much control you have over wheeling? I would worry about discarding or wheeling over Laboratory Maniac (although most of your wheels put cards back in your library, which is oddly in tension with the maniac). Maybe Winds of Change would be better than Windfall or Wheel of Fate to keep the maniac around?

I use a similar strategy in Revenge of the Nibblers, but with The Locust God as my commander, not that it's any more or less removable than the maniac or Arjun, the Shifting Flame.

I try to land a Kindred Discovery when I have combo pieces out like Altar of the Brood, Impact Tremors, Laboratory Maniac, or Purphoros, God of the Forge. That lets me respond to my draw triggers one at a time, rather than to a wheel effect that must be completed. Then I can draw all of my deck except for 1 or 2 cards and pause to respond to a draw trigger with an instant that goes back into my library, like Blue Sun's Zenith. Along the way, I use some combination of Ashnod's Altar, Gemstone Array, Mana Echoes, and Phyrexian Altar to store a ton of U mana to keep drawing the zenith and re-casting it back into my library.

I can't literally do that forever, but I can do that long enough to take care of libraries with a few more cards than mine or opponents with high, but not infinite, life totals.

I wonder if more win cons might be helpful here.

Happy brewing!
