Furani on Fling In The Ice (MODERN)

6 days ago

Brute Force +2 // Uncanny Speed -2 // Fists of the Anvil -1 // Temur Battle Rage -2 // Undying Evil +2 // Soul's Fire -2 // Spell Pierce +3 //Cryptborn Horror -2 // Goblin Electromancer +2 // Jeskai Sage -2 // Vampire Hexmage +2 //Fate Foretold -2 // Skin Invasion -2 // Cathartic Reunion +2 //

Quite the rebuild but, you have so many different cards at different mana-speed-levels that the deck won't perform very consistent

Thought about it some more:

If you have the budget, Snapcaster Mage seems like an all-around upgrade on Jeskai Sage. It works better with Thing in the Ice  Flip and you could even cast Fling on itself out of the graveyard.

And maybe one Bedlam Reveler instead of a Cryptborn Horror

... the problem withCryptborn Horror is that its only good when you are ahead. If your opponent has the upper hand and you are unable to do a considerable amount of damage (or any at all) in a turn Cryptborn Horror is useless. And its in this situation you need good cards, not the other way around :)

:). Now lets move to the next card im sceptic about.. Deviant Glee. Removing the creature targeted by Deviant Glee as a response to it being cast is what is called a 2-for-1 (dont know how new you are, but you should be familiar with this term unless you are new new). I think even Lightning Strike would be better as its easier to resolve and Deviant Glee takes another turn, a creature and for that creature to survive to get more profit. Altho, i would not recommend Lightning Strike in modern. How about Bump in the Night or Lava Spike (or both?).

I would reduce the number of Cryptborn Horrors to max 1 as they are very situational and maybe move 1-2 Ash Zealot to sideboard againt any Snapcaster Mage related matchups.

in edh kan Cryptborn Horror goed werken, zeker als je een paar extort triggers hebt gekregen

Archetype of Aggression would help you more than Bloodfray GiantCarnival Hellsteed and Cryptborn Horror don't do as much as they should for their cost/conditions. Have you considered War Elemental and Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury instead?Also, Rakdos Ickspitter, Gore-House Chainwalker, and Splatter Thug could easily be cut out for effects that boost other, better creatures. Not to mention that haste providers like Mass Hysteria become dead draws once you have a way to put +1/+1 counters on creatures entering the battlefield (such as Drana or Necropolis Regent). Also, Caldera Hellion, Mephidross Vampire, Retribution of the Ancients, Grenzo, Dungeon Warden or Flesh Carver?
