Fanatical Firebrand Discussion

AgentJackjohn on Gruul Rage (Ideas Welcome)

Voltaic Brawler works fine with the two energy that it comes with, a 2 mana 3/2 that can be a 4/3 with trample for 2 turns is very good. It does get better with more energy as it can be bigger for more turns but it doesn't need more. Shouldn't slow down your deck at all.

For Ramunap red I have seen lists that just replace the deserts with aggressive one drops, like Daring Buccaneer/Fanatical Firebrand and have Blazing Volley in the sideboard for token matchups where the ferocidon would've been.

Thanks for your comment!

Jace, Cunning Castaway, Drake Haven, and Favorable Winds makes for a devastating combo. Most decks like to cycle for Drake Haven but this deck mostly utilizes the discard mechanic. With 4 lands you can curve Drake Haven into Jace to produce a drake turn 4 while also giving Jace a +1. If you can ultimate Jace then you're producing at least two drakes per turn. You won't hit this combo every game of course, and it's a little finicky to set up your board, but it's absolutely devastating if you can get it rolling (easier with 4x Jace). Skyship Plunderer helps pump Jace to ultimate as well. They can sweeper your board all they'd like and the drakes will return. That sustaining potential is easily worth the two slots for Drake Haven.

You want to establish a board with this deck but will often get stuck at three lands. Baral is clutch because you can continue building your board while still threatening Censor or Lookout's Dispersal. The threat of cheap counterspells can really mess with people. Counterspells with Baral can also trigger Drake Haven. I'm not attached to Spell Pierce but there always seems to be at least once per match where it would make a game-deciding difference. It's the perfect deus ex machina card.

Chart a Course is awesome cuz you can consistently attack with flyers. Two mana for an extra card is a great deal. It also has added versatility for producing drakes.

I've given Warkite Marauder a lot of thought, but he just isn't right for this deck because there's nothing in Blue (or colorless) that can deal the one damage needed to make full use of his ability. I really like Warkite Marauder but I think he's destined for a Blue/Red Favorable Winds deck alongside Fanatical Firebrand, Enigma Drake, and Rekindling Phoenix. The rest is just a ton of counterspells and burn. All the burn allows Warkite Marauder to topple anything from Hazoret the Fervent to The Scarab God (using Magma Spray). Jace and the Sky Pirates are surprisingly better without Marauder.

Added Fanatical Firebrand to the maybelist. It would take the place of the Goblin Arsonist. The text on the arsonist is a little simpler, which is the main reason I kept it in the main version.

First of all, thank you for commenting Pabs4444!

Second, I am definitely trying to get Unclaimed Territory, however, they are extremely hard to find. If I can find some, I definitely will put 'em in! :)

I hear you on the many one-drop issue and I am addressing it. Obviously, Siren Stormtamer, I feel, is a must in any Blue pirate deck - so I want to keep him in. Also, Daring Buccaneer is SUCH a nice first turn guy so he is staying. That leaves Rigging Runner and Fanatical Firebrand getting cut from the deck. To replace these, I am looking at Dire Fleet Daredevil.

About Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, I really wanted to keep this Ixalan-block only since rotation is just around the corner (sometime in April) and I don't think it is worth draining my life force to find some (because there are A LOT of Ramunap Red decks where I play). However, if I do stumble upon some, I will try and test them out - see how they do.

Concerning sideboard, I would really appreciate some help. I am not 100% sure what this deck will struggle against so I would DEFINITELY like some help.

Again, thank you so much for commenting.
