Disciple_of_Doran on U/R Name WIP

As someone who is very budget focused myself, I agree that Snapcaster Mage is probably out of the question unless you really, REALLY want to make this deck super competitive.

I think Young Pyromancer is a better choice than Flameblade Adept for sure, probably Monastery Swiftspear as well. Making tokens that stay until they die is just better than temporarily buffing a hasty creature. The buffs wear off, the tokens stay, and are much more versatile. If you were playing burn the earlier damage and haste would be better, but where you're already playing the long game you'll just get more value from tokens.

As for lands... Shivan Reef is by far the best budget option (a point or two of damage for color fixing until you draw into the appropriate basics is no big deal compared to failing to find mana you need for a counter), with Swiftwater Cliffs being even cheaper. If you were slightly less budget Spirebluff Canal or Sulfur Falls may work as well. Possibly even Temple of Epiphany for the added scry, though lands that always play tapped are usually a bad idea in my experience.

Disciple_of_Doran, Delver is an interesting option. I have it available on MTGO and will try it tonight. So far this deck has done well really (for its cost).

Sleight of Hand seems great for the mana cost. I was not aware of the card before and I think you are absolutely correct.

And yes, Snapcaster would be amazing and would quadruple the cost of the deck. I am wondering if I can make this somewhat decent and SCM would just send it overboard. But if not then there doesn't seem to be much value for me.

How would you splash red and what would you remove? Would Young Pyro be better than say, Monastery Swiftspear or even Flameblade Adept?

What duel lands would you recommend? Budget minded for the here and now of course.

How does this deck work for you in standard? I have been working on a similar deck for a couple of months now and feel like it lacks a little. my deck is more cycling though. I use Flameblade Adept and Cunning Survivor but use Vile Manifestation . Since I am on the cycling route to boost creatures (mostly cunning survivor) I use Champion of Wits, bicycle lands (for the discard, mana fixing and cap my land drops), Censor, Vizier of Tumbling Sands and Hieroglyphic Illumination. The other big thing I use is Fateful Showdown since it discards my hand and draws that many cards (minus 1 because fateful gets used). Basically if you have 2 survivors on the board and can cast fateful showdown for 4 discards at the player, you can deal 14 damage on that swing (turn 4?). My plan b is a couple of locust gods since I have some draw power. Plan c is a single Abandoned Sarcophagus. if you wanna compare notes and try to improve this deck, I'd be up for improving on them. I am gonna post my version of the deck when I finish this comment.

Flameblade Adept works well in a discard heavy deck.

Atroxreaper Thanks for the suggestion Consuming Fervor does sounds nice, I'll probably take out the 2 Flameblade Adept maybe 2 Lightning Axe

Some undervalued cards I ran before I got my hazoret were Flameblade Adept Consuming Fervor and Rigging Runner. The consuming allows for busted turn twos if you can play two on a Soul-Scar Mage it allows you to hit for 9.

I completely agree that Flameblade Adept is the best 1 cmc creature for this deck.
(Monastery Swiftspear is second, and the third place is taken by Insolent Neonate due to its menace & interaction with Fiery Temper (over Goblin Guide)

But my deck is slightly different as i gave up Bloodghast, for the ability to ramp early into Demigod of Revenge, via Infernal Plunge & Chandra, Torch of Defiance - with the added benefit of being able to pull of T2 Blood Moon & and a painless mana base.

Btw, what is your opinion about reducing your land count - which is possible due to cantrips, aka the so called "xerox effect" - i was able to get away with running 15

Also, i personally think Flameblade Adept is much better compared to Monastery Swiftspear, especially when playing a Faithless Looting or two.
