Hey, nice start and this is obviously a budget deck therefore my suggestions will be $2 or less each, most are less than $1.





Cards to consider cutting:

  • 2x Island
  • 2x Plains
  • 2x Mountain
  • Enigma Drake
  • Rage Thrower
  • Boros Locket
  • Izzet Locket
  • Winged Words
  • Hallowed Spiritkeeper
  • Monastery Siege
  • Not Forgotten
  • Blaze
  • Radical Idea
  • Shock
  • Dramatic Reversal
  • Hissing Iguanar

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Desolate Lighthouse can act as another Geier Reach Sanitarium and could be a good include for the list. Firestorm is also very similar to Nahiri's Wrath and could be good for the deck.

theartision Cool! Alright, well if it's budget AND chaos or budget AND coin-flip we're talking about then.... As much as dislike the chaos archetype I do know some budget cards then to maybe consider, again these are just suggestions so if it's too against the grain of what you're going for feel free to ignore them:


Warp World

Crazed Firecat

Goblin Bangchuckers

Humble Defector - at least gives you draw, and is friendly in EDH so some politics involved.

Pendant of Prosperity - allows you ramp and again is political

Goblin Festival - keeping in theme to the chaos, flipping, and budget.

Desolate Lighthouse

Mystic Sanctuary

Wild Evocation

Zuzur: Castle Locthwain has the purpose of drawing more cards while Desolate Lighthouse does not.
I'd propose to cut one Blood Crypt or one Basic Land.
Test it out and see how it goes for you :)

cyeRunner : Thanks alot for your suggestion ! Nope, I didn't think about it. But now that you showed it to me, I will probably think of replace my Castle Locthwain for 1 Desolate Lighthouse definitely ;) Thanks !

Nice deck :)
have you thought about 1 Desolate Lighthouse ?
It seems like a good discard-outlet to me and you can also fix your hard-quality.

Hey, Drake Haven can be a repeatable way to make Drakes when you discard cards. You could expand on the draw and discard theme such as Faithless Looting , Careful Study , Chart a Course , Frantic Search , Monastery Siege (Khans) which is more fuel for Crackling and Enigma. Looters such as Merfolk Looter , Thought Courier , Desolate Lighthouse can draw and discard and be a permanent to untap with Ral.

If Viral Drake is a possible win condition then consider Flux Channeler who can also proliferate. Difference is proliferate happens whenever you cast a noncreature spell. Combining this with more draw/discard can be a lot of proliferation not just for opponent's potential poison counters, but also Ral's loyalty.
