Dangerous Wager Discussion

Why use Dangerous Wager when you could use Tormenting Voice? I get that Dangerous wager can be used with 0 cards in hand but I think it'd be better to be able to draw without having to discard your hand.

Not too sure about Reverberate, Wild Guess, Tormenting Voice, and Dangerous Wager. Those 3 loot effects don't dig deep enough (especially when compared to Goblin Lore) for what (me thinks) you are trying to do. Reverberate just looks like anti-counterspell, but do you really need it? Fanatic of Mogis doesn't seem like the best way to try and win, I would rather just stick with Purphoros, God of the Forge. Chandra, Flamecaller's middle ability seems pretty good in this deck. Starke of Rath, getting to destroy 2 creatures / artifacts each turn seems pretty legit. I am hesitant in suggesting Scrap Mastery, as it might be too win-more. The lack of board removal makes it seem worthwhile (along with All Is Dust for that matter). Lastly, be careful with Rowdy Crew and using it with worldgorger, as (if I understand the worldgorger rules correctly) you might deck yourself.

Hybridtheory13- First, nice name, Chester was the voice of a generation. May he RIP.

Thanks! 2 of these will probably replace one of each Magmatic Insight and Dangerous Wager. Can't lose with it!

Seems pretty creature heavy given what you're shooting for, I think. Take advantage of the blue with some bounce and/or counter (Mana Leak, Syncopate, Vapor Snag, another Cyclonic Rift). I would pick the Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind over dracogenius if you're wanting to do things with card draw and maybe some Faithless Looting, Desperate Ravings, or Dangerous Wager, maybe Browbeat or Reforge the Soul . Kiln Fiend and Nivix Cyclops are killer, especially with a few Artful Dodge, which has that nice flashback. Maybe drop the Wee Dragonauts since you've already got a playset of Stormchaser Mage and the 2 Enigma Drake. Maybe cut down on the number of Bloodwater Entity and replace them with instants or sorceries. It's nice to pull from the graveyard, I like Mystic Retrieval for that since the flashback means I don't feel bad about discarding it.

I realize I just wrote a lot. I'm currently working on converting my vintage Izzet to modern so these are things I've been thinking about recently anyways. Hope at least a little bit of this is helpful.

@BlazingAbsol - Thanks for the suggestion! I definitely wanted to fit Chandra, Torch of Defiance, but can't imagine running more than a singleton with only 20 lands. I dropped Howling Mine, which I've been looking to do for a while, and replaced it with 1x Chandra and 3x Dangerous Wager. Wager will help when I'm top decking without helping my opponent, and Chandra will be an excellent source of regular card advantage.

Dangerous Wager is instant speed and most of the time my hand is empty anyways.

How good is Dangerous Wager? Wouldn't Tormenting Voice be better?
