lordkilljoyI followed some of your suggestions and I think I ajusted the deck.I took out the Dictate of Heliod and added 1 Spear of Heliod and 1 more Titanic Growth .Also took out the Herald of Anafenza And added 2 Elvish Mystic that help me get the double green foe Polukranos, World Eater and Boon Satyr .Also added the Banishing Light to my side board and 2 Warriors' Lesson to the main board.
Really like this list, +1!
Some thoughts concerning the list:
Although I think Deflecting Palm is a great card. It just seems like a better sideboard option in this list, at least in my opinion. It's just no good mono-red aggro or even mono-black aggro. It's far better against a monstrous Polukranos, World Eater or Stormbreath Dragon . Don't get me wrong it definitely seems worthy to be played I just think a card like Lightning Strike in the mainboard would help this deck get where it wants to be. True it's just a 2-drop common but it deals with so many cards right now. Understanding that Magma Jet hits half of these creatures, Lightning Strike deals with the bigger threats and having both gives you even more options.
Look at the viable standard creatures it kills: Monastery Swiftspear , Elvish Mystic , Soldier of the Pantheon , Heir of the Wilds , Seeker of the Way , Generator Servant , Phyrexian Revoker , Rattleclaw Mystic , Eidolon of the Great Revel , Fleecemane Lion , Rakshasa Deathdealer , Boon Satyr , Prophetic Flamespeaker , Herald of Torment , Hushwing Gryff , Eidolon of Blossoms , and currently best of all Goblin Rabblemaster . Not to mention when needed you can just dome your opponent. The card may as well be Doomblade in current standard because it kills so many early threats.
If you're running control, it just seems like a necessity in the mainboard alongside Magma Jet . Ideally 4x but understanding how difficult it is to make room for cards 3x could be reasonable but you want it early so 4x makes more sense.
Additionally, even with multiple decks running Ascendancy Combo or if you're seeing Rams & Courser everywhere 5x enchantment exile spells seems to be excessive in the sideboard especially since you have Chained to the Rocks to get the creatures Banishing Light to get rid of any of the other gods or Jeskai Ascendancy .
Maybe drop 1x Erase , 1x Deicide and 2x Suspension Field from the sideboard since you already many cards that accomplish the same thing those cards do. Then put those 3x Deflecting Palm and 1x Anger of the Gods in the sideboard so that you can fit the 4x Lightning Strike in your mainboard. Anger of the Gods is the best it's been in standard since it was printed so I can definitely see 3x Lightning Strike & 3x Anger of the Gods , I just like having the mainboard option to burn my opponent for 3 damage also having turn 2 burn is great against aggresive strategies or mana ramp decks.
Lastly, props for running Fated Conflagration . I think the card is great now even if I can't burn my opponent. 2x seems perfect in this list since it does cost 1RRR but with all the planeswalkers in the format it kills most all of them immediately (not to mention most every major creature threat) with the exception of Jace, the Living Guildpact , Liliana Vess , and Garruk, Apex Predator when they +1 but those 3 are usually just a one-of or are in the sideboard anyways.
Good luck, hope my lengthy comment is helpful, constructive criticism and not a waste of space : )
I played a very similar deck to this at game day, and the only thing I'll say is that I wanted Prophet of Kruphix to work more than anything, but it really didn't. There is so much removal in this standard format that your threats rarely last more than a turn. I think you want more Coursers, Stormbreaths, and maybe more Heirs.
Also, you definitely want Boon Satyr . It turns on Ferocious and Heir of the Wilds and it's always going to trade up or make one of your mid-rangey dudes into a gigantic monster. Not to mention, it's practically unbeatable on a Sagu Mauler . It was a last minute addition and I couldn't have been happier with it.
Thank you! I had the Courser of Kruphix as an idea, but as I was play testing it the revealing a top card really shot some of the morph strategy in the foot. I have also found that mass removal like Anger of the Gods really hurts, so I am going to add some counterspell stuff (to the sideboard if nothing else). As for Goblin Rabblemaster and Boon Satyr , I'll give them a try and see what happens. They are deffinitly better than the prophet though
I actually was going to say something about Boon Satyr not being too great. I really want him to be good, and he can be sometimes, but every time I put him in my deck I'm very disappointed with the results. While the overall casting cost of the Phoenix and Chandra would be a perfect swap, I feel like the Phoenix must stay. He is very very underrated right now, and I'm not sure why he's not a more played card. So I'd try dropping a Satyr for another Chandra and see how that plays. If you think about it, it can be looked at that Satyr and Chandra have the same CMC. Satyr has a cost of 3 or of 5, an average of 4, which is what Chandra's is (pardon my terrible grammar with that sentence). So I think that would be a really good move. I'd almost try and work Satyr out of the lineup completely. He was really good before because he could Flash-block a Blood Baron. Since the Baron isn't in Standard anymore, there's really not as many threats that he can get rid of. The majority of the major Standard threats are Flying, so the only decent Flash-Block play anymore is an opposing Rabblemaster. Anyway, that's just my two cents on Boon Satyr recently.
Thanks, CrovaxTheCursed! You know, I played with Setessan Tactics in multiple decks last standard season and it somehow didn't even occur to me. I felt 4x Arc Lightning was too much anyway, so I think -1 there and -1 Hunt the Hunter , but I do want access to 2x since my local meta is lousy with green creatures, and it creates some serious tempo advantage and blowout scenarios. You do have to tap for Tactics to work and I do want to be swinging in, so I like the idea of both.
On another note, I'm loving Chandra in this build and I'd like to work 1x more of her in somehow. Her +1 pushes attackers through and many matchups cause her 0 to be very impactful when going long. Boon Satyr feels weakest to me here but I could also see cutting 1x Ashcloud Phoenix as a direct fill for the CMC and 2 R symbols. Thoughts?
So. My UG tempo deck. It's pretty bad. I want it to be only slightly bad. Currently in the two-drop slot I've got Icefeather Aven and Quickling . I like the latter a lot to save creatures from removal and because flash is really important in the deck. Icefeather Aven is basically a Gaea's Skyfolk , with the morph-n-bounce routine very rarely happening, so I'm wondering if a better defensive 2-drop would be better (NOT Sylvan Caryatid ). Heir of the Wilds seems pretty good, and I've got Boon Satyr and Sagu Mauler for Ferocious enablers. Which do you think is more powerful in this deck between the Heir and the Aven?
