If you're looking for combo potential, Memory Lapse is pretty filthy with putting your spell from hand to top of library, and it raises your storm QUITE A BIT. Hinder can do similar tricks.

Additionally, I just remembered there was such a deck that cared about big creatures and their power - Cragganwick Cremator. An emrakul discarded to it is 15 damage, an Impervious Greatwurm is 16 damage. You can finish them off with a Lightning Bolt to the face.

Additionally, there are several other cards that care about the mana cost of something to deal damage - Erratic Explosion, Riddle of Lightning, Explosive Revelation that care for the CMC of the cards. Especially when you can stack something on top of your library like Thunderous Wrath. Seems like a cool way to care about big creatures.

Wanted to build a deck around Doomsday and this is my attempt.

Stack the deck so that when you play Erratic Explosion Draco (16 mana) is the card that is revealed.

Some burn to bring them down with a few other cards to help find what you need.

Goblin Fireslinger because tap abilities are helpful.

Chasmolinker - There is a reason, and it is that fireblast hits for 6 off Erratic Explosion and Riddle of Lightning, compared to the Volley, which hits for one off of them. For that reason, I do not run Lightning Bolt, but Staggershock instead.

I found Erratic Explosion the other day and as I was Pondering how I could build around this card I found your deck. I think your deck looks really awesome, will have to tinker, +1

No suggestions from anyone?

Anything that would let me recycle Erratic Explosion and target Draco twice would be good so the deck could win in modern without having to rely on your opponent playing Death's Shadow or something

See also Erratic Explosion, Riddle of Lightning, Explosive Revelation, and Blast of Genius.

oh and Mizzix's Mastery. (please note I'm not suggesting all of these, just pointing them out for reference)

Hi Vash! You should run RUG with Riku or the like with Draco + the red spell Erratic Explosion. There should be more effects like it.
