Fiery Gambit Discussion

Hey there! Looks like a solid deck to me! There are a few cards that I would consider adding, though, mostly just EDH staples:
- Blasphemous Act
- Chaos Warp
- Reforge the Soul
- Temple of the False God
- Mind Stone
- Outpost Siege
- Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip
- Hammer of Purphoros
- Forgotten Cave
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
- Ogre Battledriver
- Faithless Looting
- Zealous Conscripts (goes infinite with Kiki-Jiki)
- Dualcaster Mage
- Magus of the Wheel
- Mana Geyser
- Burnished Hart
- Dictate of the Twin Gods
And then some cards that work particularly well with Purphoros:- Rakka Mar- Flameshadow Conjuring- Tooth and Claw- Pia and Kiran Nalaar- Goblin Warchief- Goblin Matron- Ogre Battledriver- Embermaw Hellion- Burn at the Stake- Goblin King
Some cards that I would consider cutting:
- Dragon Fodder
- Krenko's Command
- Fiery Gambit
- Molten Birth
- Thatcher Revolt
- Generator Servant
- Harsh Mentor
- Kari Zev, Skyship Raider
- Zurgo Bellstriker
In any case, sweet deck! Good luck!

They can play differently but both benefit from playing cheap cantrip/buff spells and swinging.
Shu Yun can also go tokens with Talrand, Sky Summoner, Young Pyromancer ect. but Zada would be more focused on that strategy. He won't be able to buff them like Zada can. They would more or less be chump blockers.
No interest in running any sort of goodstuff deck.
As for Fiery Gambit since it targets a creature you can target Zada with it and copy it many times with a token army and ping opponents to death.

I think they both play very differently.
Zada, Hedron Grinder seems like a good general for a token strategy where you can teambuff the whole team with instants/sorceries by targetting Zada.
Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest does not really require to go wide. Notice that his ability and prowess both state "noncreature", which means that casting planeswalkers, enchantments or artifacts will also trigger him. You could play aura enchantments to buff Shu Yun which will also grant you the possibility to pay the mana to give him double strike. You could go voltron with him or just Jeskai Goodstuff.
I'll admit I don't really understand the last part about Fiery Gambit, however if you're looking to make a coinflipping deck, I'll gladly guide you to the best one I've found so far: Great coinflipping deck

Title says it all Zada, Hedron Grinder or Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest? Both have similar play styles: cast instants/sorceries on your commander, swing. Shu Yun has the added advantage of whereas Zada can buff her entire army with one spell. Yun's card draw isn't dependant on him being on the field like it is for Zada but he does miss out on funny wins with Fiery Gambit.

Consecrated Sphinx, Winds of Change, Pull from Tomorrow, Read the Runes, Mulldrifter, Nin, the Pain Artist, Illuminate, Illusory Ambusher, Incendiary Command, Izzet Charm, Kefnet the Mindful, Laquatus's Creativity, Master the Way, Mindmoil, Molten Psyche, Faithless Looting, Fateful Showdown, Fiery Gambit, Flux, Wheel of Fortune, Forgotten Creation, Collective Defiance, Dack Fayden, Dangerous Wager, Desperate Ravings, Distant Memories, Bedlam Reveler ...
Any mass draw + Molten Psyche can be a funny way of finishing someone off...
Just ideas !
Bumping CommanderEesha's Skullclamp suggestion. It would be absolutely broken in this deck !

I love a good mono-red BEATS deck! How does Urza's Rage sound? Chandra, Pyromaster is a cheap planeswalker than can copy a devastating damage spell. Dual Casting for more copying. If you want to have fun and gamble, Fiery Gambit can attract a crowd to your table to watch (Imagine copying it!). Braid of Fire Ain't cheap, but it'll supply you with mana. Wild Ricochet is almost an auto-include for me (saved me multiple times). run Brand if card stealing is heavy in your meta.
Card Draw: Unfortunately, Red mana doesn't have great access to card draw without discard effects; Avaricious Dragon, Browbeat can net a few cards, Burning Inquiry, Goblin Lore, Control of the Court, Mindmoil does a dope job of letting you dig through your library. ALOT of wheel effects.
BUT Geth's Grimoire Makes amazing use of these wheel effects!!
You might be interested in Otherworld Atlas. Yes it gives everybody cards, but hardly anyone can complain or target the guy giving everyone cards. Arcane Spyglass makes use of unneeded mana. Farsight Mask, Font of Mythos, Illuminated Folio, Staff of Nin, Well of Knowledge,
Sorry for the gross wall of text, hope this helps!!
