Dualcaster Mage Discussion

SpaghettiToastBook on Ashling the burn deck

Chain Reaction is a really good board wipe: it's inexpensive, has a low CMC, and almost always kills everything.Staff of Nin is recurring card draw and it's cheap. Mind's Eye is more expensive but probably better at drawing cards. Magus of the Wheel and Dragon Mage are more wheel effects you could try. You might also want to try Mana Flare, Treasonous Ogre, or Caged Sun for even more mana to sink into Ashling.

You might want to try damage doublers: Furnace of Rath, Insult / Injury, Quest for Pure Flame, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Curse of Bloodletting, Gratuitous Violence, or Overblaze. All of these are pretty inexpensive.

Copying spells is a neat way to increase the value of your burns. You could try any of these: Reverberate, Wild Ricochet, Fork, Chandra, the Firebrand, Dual Casting, Dualcaster Mage, Increasing Vengeance, Howl of the Horde. You can also use most of these to copy pesky counterspells or copy draw or ramp spells. Price of Glory is great since you're mostly playing at sorcery speed. Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Ricochet Trap, and Burnout are good for hating on blue players. Overmaster, Reroute, or Shunt might be okay too.

Okay I checked it out. If you don't have a Harnessed Lightning I'll do the trade you mentioned plus your Dualcaster Mage?

May as well trade Increasing Vengeance for Dualcaster Mage for the combo with Heat Shimmer? Unless you need the graveyard interaction.

I main Purphoros so I can offer a little sage advice.

TBH you can safely cut most of the pain enchantments like Burning Earth, Spellshock et al. This is because Purph himself IS a house of pain which is why the Narset player most likely targeted you. Instead focus on creatures that produce tokens (i.e. Beetleback Chief, Krenko, Mob Boss, Siege-Gang Commander, Pia and Kiran Nalaar ect.) and/or Instants/Sorceries that likewise focus on tokens (i.e. Hordeling Outburst, Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder, Kuldotha Rebirth ect.). The great thing with Purph is that he doesn't care about what kinds or tokens you make but I think you'd get the most mileage with goblins simply due to their relative ease of production and synergy with others like Skirk Prospector, Goblin Recruiter, Moggcatcher, ect.

You can also go combo if you'd like utilizing Dualcaster Mage and either Heat Shimmer/Twinflame to create infinite Dualcaster Mages and damage via Purph. Norin the Wary is just brutal with Genesis Chamber. Grinning Ignus is an all star here too.

I would recommend any sort of doubling spell. Wild Ricochet, Dualcaster Mage or Reverberate. You are running a lot of Sorcery/Instants in this deck, and its a good way to get more bang for your buck. Also, nothing better than copying someones Counterspell or ricocheting someones exile spell.

hmm could use one Dualcaster Mage to copy all those instants and sorceries you've got, and 2x Glorious End to really finish them off

This list looks very similar to my list of kiki-jiki; overall quite resilient and powerful. I would suggest, if you want to maximize your combo-tastic strategy, getting the new amonkhet mythic Combat Celebrant, which combos with kiki-jiki like zealous conscripts. Additionally, casting Heat Shimmer or Twinflame and copying it with Dualcaster Mage will win u the game, too. Keep up the good stuff, and have fun brealing mirrors!

WalkingWormFood and IgnisMachina: When a card with Strive is copied, you may change the targets but NOT the number of targets. So yes, you can make infinite copies of any creature doing that. That being said, since the combo generates an infinite number of hasty Dualcaster Mages already, I think the addition of Abbot of Keral Keep is a bit win-more :(

IgnisMachina: Goblin Dark-Dwellers keep rotating in and out. To be honest, although they can reuse a draw spell, I tend to just prefer a token generator :( If I could find something to cut, though, they'd probably make it back into the list.
