Dragon's Claw Discussion

Ok so currently I am running
3x Forked Bolt
I played a tournament last Saturday, did bad the first round against RG Eldrazi (didn't see that one coming!) from one of my friends. Any suggestions to beat that?

Zealous Persecution is a nice budget friendly card for tokens. Also Spectral Procession for the flyers. I might also add that Seeker of the Way isn't very strong, and you have much better anti-burn options as white if you make a sideboard, such as Dragon's Claw or Kor Firewalker.

Appreciate the kind words, Atrabilogie! This has been one of my favorite personal decks to play, and one of the first decks I started building when I started playing the game back in 2013. Very happy to hear you like it as well!
I really like your idea of Momentary Blink in place of Cloudshift. I originally went with Cloudshift for the cost advantage, but I think you are right that the option for flashback makes Momentary Blink a better alternative in the long run. Ill have to try that out myself! There are some other pretty interesting spells like Ghostly Flicker that could be interesting to try as well.
Akroma, Angel of Fury is a recent new change for this deck. I found it being used in a similar deck, and thought I would give it a shot. The idea is really interesting- the way it works is that you play it as a 2/2 morph creature for 3. If you can blink/flicker it afterward, it actually returns to the battlefield face up as Akroma! So its a way of cheating Akroma into play without having to pay any red mana. It can be played as early as turn 4, and it is also extremely difficult for your opponent to get rid of it. All the traditional removal Modern spells (Fatal Push, Dismember, Path to Exile, Lightning Bolt) cannot take care of her. Youll never be able to pump Akroma, but even so it is makes for a very fast clock for your opponent. The downside is that once your opponent knows the trick, he/she will save their removal for the 2/2 morph creature before you can flip it, as it is a very fragile creature otherwise. But it is still a really neat card to play around with!
Against Mono Red Burn, Dragon's Claw is definitely one of the best sideboard cards against it, as well as Leyline of Sanctity. I do slightly prefer Lone Missionary and Kitchen Finks versus aggro & burn for better blinking/flickering synergy with the deck, but of course it is all your personal preference and meta!
Anyways, let me know how it goes with this deck, and best of luck to you in all your matches! :)

I REALLY like your deck. By using things from your side it actually beats the monstrous Affinity archetype !
I tried it with Momentary Blink instead of Cloudshift and it works way much better for the long run with its flashback.I didn't understand why you've put Red Akroma in this deck so I just changed it to the white in my list.Feel free to explain to me why you've chosed it !
Here's a different decklist. Don't get me wrong, outside of my Momentary Blink advice, I'm not trying to tell you how to build your deck, I've just tried a little bit different list to counter the most threatening aggro decks.
I really like your deck, I'm trying to get back at MTG and after more testing, there are lots of chances I buy/trade for this decklist !
(don't really mind the SB atm)
SB: 1 Kitchen Finks
SB: 2 Rest in Peace
SB: 4 Spreading Seas
SB: 2 Stony Silence
SB: 2 Supreme Verdict
SB: 4 Cloudshift
SB: 2 Akroma, Angel of Wrath
SB: 4 Dragon's Claw
SB: 1 Island
SB: 1 Detention Sphere
SB: 1 Phyrexian Ingester
SB: 1 Sun Titan
SB: 1 Ephara, God of the Polis

Thank you guys so much for the suggestions! And yea there are a lot of 6 drops in the deck, but going koth -2 into them is great. Sarkhan has been underperforming though. But I feel I should keep a 6 drop like Wurmcoil Engine or Inferno Titan to catch up against creatures. And while relic is good against graveyards, anger combos with Eternal Scourge and is awesome against dredge when they plan to go wide. But suns can cantrip, so it is definitely worth testing. Also I do need help with a sideboard and Dragon's Claw looks stellar as well as rabblemaster. But again thank all of you for helping out!

Yes, I was going to say that card draw might be the issue. You may run out of gas and run into trouble with your big threats. I would add something like Tormenting Voice, or Faithless Looting. I also would carry Dragon's Claw for mirror matches.
