Titus7007 I think you are falling too much in love with Drown in the Loch , for this deck at least. It's a great card, but it needs its deck to enable it, as it will be a very dead card until the opponent's graveyard begins to stack up. That usually isn't a good spot to be in, especially vs. aggro decks.

I agree with Sorin_Markov_1947 on Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , he doesn't really seem to fit the deck. On top of being awkward to cast in a 3-color deck, he just doesn't do enough here. There isn't a lot of burn or creatures to add to the board, paying 4 mana and a card to have Flame Sweep deal 2 more damage doesn't sound favorable and Sarkhan the Masterless doesn't need any help to be good.

Ral, Storm Conduit is fine with Flame Sweep and Thought Erasure , but wants more hits for his -2 to really get there.

As Sorin said, this feels like a Fires of Invention deck that doesn't have the key card in it. Jeskai is the best version of those decks at the moment, but Grixis is in no way bad either.

Good luck!

How much of a help is Warden of Evos Isle so far? The only really expensive creature is your Sephara, Sky's Blade and it casts itself rather fast, given the circumstances. I would replace the Wardens for Faerie Miscreant . Its cheap and gives you some draw-engine. What I would recommend would be Rally of Wings , since I see it in this kind of decks often and it gives your attacking creatures some serious punch. Maybe 1 or 2 copies of Unbreakable Formation for your sidedeck to protect your fliers to get wrecked by Flame Sweep and/or Ritual of Soot .

jaivabarrera the few times I lost with this was all because of my own stubbornness (keeping bad hands, not paying enough attention, ect). Shifting Ceratops really shuts down any opponents playing blue. Field of Ruin plus Flame Sweep is prefect against shitshift. Bond of Flourishing is an amazing card to just snuff mono red decks with. Turn two bond and mono red is pretty much done for. Vamps are no big deal. Mono green can be tough. Ghalta can stomp you down so try to race it as fast as possible.

KeoneMakai Wow nice! Haven't had the chance to try it out at an FNM yet but I'm amazed it went that well for you. Thanks for bringing it out for a spin!

If you do manage to whip up a sideboard do let me know. I am hilariously bad at those. So far I've only thought about adding Tibalt, Rakish Instigator for anti lifegain shenanigans, and possibly Flame Sweep for anti tokens/weenies (of course that'd kill all my shit as well so who knows). Fry would be good as well, I think? Have I mentioned I'm bad at side boards?

DemonDragonJ There's a focus on flying creatures because they put one in. Each wedge set has a theme, and the theme is "flying matters."

I'm kind of curious about the flavor text theme of Dragon Mage , Flame Sweep , and Rapacious Dragon. I don't think it's anything more than a flavor gag, but it's still interesting.
