While Fling and Thud may sometimes deal more damage than Collateral Damage , however, due to the restriction on power by Yasova Dragonclaw , Collateral will usually deal more. Also, the stealing and sacrificing deal is only a small feature of the deck, not the focus of the deck. I'd prefer to only have one threaten effect in the deck, as adding more than just Yasova would make the deck too dependent on my opponent for powerful creatures. Thanks for the suggestions, though.

guttersnipe is just terrible in modern.. 3 mana that could easily have just been another bolt, and there is a million better options than shock, most of which are fairly cheap.

some shock replacements include:

Wild Slash

Flame Slash

Searing Blaze


Shard Volley

Deflecting Palm

Collateral Damage

Gut Shot

Molten Rain

Chained to the Rocks

guttersnipe could be replaced by plenty of lower cmc creatures not seen in regular burn decks

Young Pyromancer

Firebrand Archer

Kiln Fiend

Goblin Arsonist / Goblin Grenade

Mogg Fanatic

Keldon Marauders

Seeker of the Way

Soul-Scar Mage

Abbot of Keral Keep

sideboard you could and should run more artfact and enchantment hate like


Wear / Tear

Smash to Smithereens

or even just the very basics in Smelt and Demystify

I forgot Flame Rift and Book Burning . I use Blur of Blades a lot and find it very useful. if you like STRONG BURN then go with Guttersnipe and Embermaw Hellion and any spell like Magma Jet , if you want small burn then go with Shock . for faster plays Bloodlust Inciter . Collateral Damage or Artillerize or Thud just Heat Shimmer . ( Mass Mutiny for fun.) good spells such as Reckless Abandon and Reversal of Fortune are just fun to play.

take the Shock out, and replace it with Collateral Damage. Aside from that, I like this deck.

Collateral Damage is another Bolt...

Imminent Doom is a weird card to play around with. In an EDH deck you'd definitely get value out of it. Here... probably not so much.

Wizard's Lightning would be more consistent damage. Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, maybe. Fanatical Firebrand, Zurgo Bellstriker, Thunderous Wrath, Searing Spear, Incinerate, Flame Javelin, Collateral Damage are all fun cheapish burn spells and doods. Reverberate+Insult would just be brutal but you'd need the mana to pull it off.

I like what you're trying, I'd just probably take out the imminents.

It's no bother. Conversely, sorry for forgetting about this thread for a bit. =p =)

Again, it depends what you're doing with Insolent Neonate. Menace is useful. And the sacrifice obviously supports Bri-Guy, but can you make the discard portion work for you? If you're planning to supplement Brian with something like Hooting Mandrills, Gurmag Angler or even Sultai Scavenger, then maybe the discard can help. If you're not though, then I would personally avoid Insolent Neonate.

I'd still consider Reckless Abandon instead of Outnumber, simply because it's guaranteed stronger than Lightning Bolt and it triggers Bloodbriar. Or Collateral Damage if you need "instant speed."

On the other hand, if you still prefer the scale-ability of Outnumber, then perhaps Mob Justice or Massive Raid would be more up your alley, since they can target players as well as creatures. They do, however, cost more to cast.

When you're done with the deck, I hope you'll share it here with us. =)
