Maybe Fulminator Mage / Izzet Charm could be good for some tech as well as hero synergy.

Well, how did you keep them from killing your Felidar Sovereign s?

You don't have to protect your creatures, when you have more creatures.

If they use a removel spell to take care of a threat, you'll be down a threat, and they'll be down a removal spell, and you'll have traded even, but if you're scared of removal, you can deploy your creatures in a backwards order to bait them into killing the wrong target.

If you're scared of Supreme Verdict , just don't commit your entire hand to the board at once.

If you're scared of Anger of the Gods , you can wait with playing Ajani's Pridemate till a turn where you can make it a 4/4, or bait them into using it early.

Sometimes you'll lose out by getting your Llanowar Elves and Serra Ascendant Electrolyze d before you got to 30, and get yourself 3 for 1ed, but sometimes you'll resolve a Ranger of Eos , and get a 3 for 1 yourself.

At the end of the day, when playing against a control deck, if it gets to the lategame, the game will go to the player who resolved the most value over time.

You've got your Rangers, your angels, Dawn of Hope and your planeswalkers, and you're versing that up against, Counter Magic, Mass removal, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Sphinx's Revelation , Snapcaster Mage , Search for Azcanta  Flip, and Jace, the Mind Sculptor .

But them being at risk of dying can force them into making seemingly dumb desicions with their removal, and counter-magic, and that's probably how you get them in the mid-game.

(You're allowed to stumble and have the wrong cards, you almost always have the potential to recover, but they have to have the right answers otherwise they get run over by 12/12 Ajani's Pridemate s. In trade for that, they have a better lategame.)

I don't think it's removal you should be scared of, it's combo decks.

You list looks pretty nice, now, though :)

i think you should keep one of them, then maybe cut one for an Electrolyze , and another for a cheaper spell like Forked Bolt , Vapor Snag or another Spell Pierce

I think it's fine to keep the remaining two Lava Spike s.

SeekerofSecrets on UR Delver

So delver normally runs 18-19 lands and 10-12 cantrips, I would probably pull an island a mountain and a Remand for 3 Sleight of Hand

Also I normally find it correct to run 2-3 Mana Leak , I might pull 1 Spell Pierce and 1 Electrolyze for 2 leak.

I also find Abrade to be extreamly versatile maybe pull 1 Roast for a 1-1 split and then plan on having 2 in you side!

I love delver so good luck with the list!

SeekerofSecrets on Izzet a PyroMidrangeThing?

1 month ago

So I love izzet builds, I'm currently brewing around Selective Memory and Crackling Drake and play storm somewhat competitively but I've played many different budget delever builds.

I feel like you need to refocus your spell package, it's kind of all over the place, theres allot of 1 ofs and I feel like that just creates inconsistencies. But to start I would play at a minimum of 3 Mana Leak and 2 Abrade and then go from there. I'm not a fan of Essence Scatter, with all of the Cavern of Souls decks running around, or Electrolyze atm, I just dont feel it hits enough relevant threats in this metta.

I love delver but I feel like it somewhat underperforms so maybe test out a 2:1 split of Cryptic Serpent and Nimble Obstructionist? I love both cards

Also maybe 3 Field of Ruin? Great main board hate for tron and cavern of souls. Also surprisingly not bad for color fixing in budget decks

TheGamer on Canceling the draw on Explosion ...

1 month ago

I still have issues trying to figure out what kind of spells resolve if a target is removed, with cards like Cryptic Command and Electrolyze, but today I have a question about Expansion / Explosion.

If my opponent decides to cast the Explosion side of Expansion / Explosion and target my 2/2 creature for 2 damage and target himself to draw 2 cards, can I kill my own creature before it resolves to prevent him from drawing cards off the Expansion / Explosion? Thanks in advance!

Hmm Electrolyze could be interesting. I think I'm hesitant because of another 3 CMC spell. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll definitely play test a couple games with some in there.
