Another pretty major tuning pass. The main thing I found after playing this deck a few times was that it wasn't interactive enough with other players. Especially those that had any Flying creatures (I had ZERO answers to flying, other than Constant Mists!). So, in the interest of upping this interaction, I have trimmed out a good amount of the "Awaken" theme to make room for better cards, and more removal, more answers.

These cuts aren't easy to decide on... I'd really love to find a way to fit in 4-6 more lands and really lean into the Landfall theme even harder, but I'm hesitant. I have really come to love the Rude Awakening+Teleportal(overloaded) combo!

Have you tried Electrickery instead of Boiling Earth

giz.moo yes Boiling Earth and Scouring Sands are exactly what I am looking for. The Breath of Darigaaz is also ok if I can't find other spells (or creatures who do the same thing to affect only my opponents. Fire Servant is great as well! The Chandra Nalaar is not as good as the one I am using Pyromancer since I can target creatures with the Pyromancer. Than you for the assist!

how about Boiling Earthor maybe Scouring Sands orBreath of Darigaaz additionally i think it would be a good idea to add some Reverberate to your deck

Sweltering Suns might be a decent Sideboard card. It hits your Creatures as well but it can let you get out of trouble if someone's board goes wide, and then they have to spend time filling it up again, while you continue to burn.

Lightning Axe is usually paired with Madness cards to allow a discard source. Currently you have no discard in the deck, so you won't get full value from Fiery Temper and Avacyn's Judgment. If you don't add a way to discard you'd be better off with Burn from Within than Avacyn's Judgment.

Warfire Javelineer is a newly spoiled card that would be terrific for you in the late game. I like it much better than Bedlam Reveler.

I was drawing too many lands in the late game with this deck. Drop them down to 21.

Here's what I would do:

OUT

2x Mountain
4x Avacyn's Judgment (you should only have four finishing spells at most)

IN

1x Burn from Within
1 or 2x Chandra's Pyrohelix
3 or 4x Lightning Axe

Warfire Javelineer instead or Bedlam Reveler in the Sideboard.

3x Blazing Volley instead of 4x Boiling Earth in the Sideboard.

3x Sweltering Suns in the Sideboard and no Kari Zev's Expertise

I was playtesting against Amonkhet Minotaurs.

Yeah, we're a bit strapped for quality wizards right now. Manic Scribe is useless (this deck is better at beatdown than mill anyway), Reckless Scholar doesn't bring enough to the table, and Exultant Cultist is pretty awful too since you don't really want your wizards dying. Gisa and Geralf also doesn't do anything even in UB since there's no room for zombies.

My deck has been trying to make Halimar Tidecaller work, with Scatter to the Winds and Ruinous Path as the Awaken cards. It's a little clunky sometimes but recurring a counterspell is so good. This doesn't work very well in Red, though, since Red's Awaken card (Boiling Earth) is pretty terrible and Blue doesn't have any other Awaken cards worth running in this deck.
