Electrify Discussion

My gut reaction is that your weakest cards are Fanatical Firebrand, Legion Warboss, and Wizard's Lightning. The Firebrand is a 1/1 that in the late game might ping your opponent. The Warboss is just going to create 1/1s that die in combat immediately (though might be a good card against control decks in the side board), and will likely trade if it ever attacks. Without a critical mass of wizards, Wizard's Lightning is just an Open Fire, which isn't very impressive.

Electrify, Radiating Lightning, and Doublecast aren't going to be that good for you. Bombard and Spit Flame are both superior to Electrify, but even then, they aren't that good. Radiating Lightning is going to, most of the time, bolt your opponent, ping all their creatures, and perhaps kill 1 of them. For 4 mana, that is not enough. Radiating Lightning is probably at its best against token decks, but Fiery Cannonade is the better card in mono-red for that. Doublecast needs another spell to work, and even then, that is probably not enough to justify it in your side board.

Electrify and Radiating Lightning are too slow for constructed play. Doublecast, as SynergyBuild stated, needs another spell to be usable, and requires you to have 4 mana open. It might be playable in an Izzet spells deck with Goblin Electromancer when you can basically get two 2 CMC spells for a total of 3 mana.

As for my proposed sideboard, Silent Gravestone and Smelt would be worth considering, probably replacing Jaya Ballard, Experimental Frenzy, and Mountain.

I want a super fast deck...I would love to burn the face off my opponent as quick as possible. What do you all not like about Doublecast, Electrify and Radiating Lightning

So this is a standard goblin-burn deck? I would really hope you decide goblins or burn, not both, Doublecast, Radiating Lightning, and Electrify can just be dropped, but you have to decide on using the Electrostatic Fields, Guttersnipes, or if you want to stay goblins.

Awesome, thanks again.

The Sarkhan Deck comes with 4 x Kargan Dragonrider's, so it's easy enough to swap 2 more in for the 2 Viashino Pyromancer's.

Alternatively the instances/sorcery's I've not currently used from either PW deck that I could switch in instead are:

Or maybe the Gilded Lotus single that comes with the Chandra deck?

Your sideboard should be dependent on what your local meta consists of, however I can make some recommendations.

Solemnity is good for the energy/ +1+1 counters strategies.

Sentinel Totem and Crook of Condemnation are good graveyard hate cards for God-Pharaoh's Gift and Cycling decks.

Abrade can get rid of problematic artifacts but you should probably be running those mainboard since they're pretty versatile. Id say put in 3 of them over your Impeccable Timing and Electrify. By Force is a more budget option to deal with problematic artifacts if that's a concern. Also Lightning Strike is in standard and it might have a home in this deck.

The only other thing I could recommend is to focus more on cards you really want to play. You have alot of 1/2 ofs and that lowers the consistency of your deck. Stuff like Graceful Cat and Hyena Pack are ok, but the deck slots could be used for more Glory-Bound Initiates and Gust Walkers. That's just an example but I'm sure you get the idea. You can easily replace some cards to increase the raw power of your deck.

Overall the deck looks sweet and I wish you the best of luck tuning it!
