I like decks like this that have themes! I remember trying to make a "steal all your stuff" deck — that was fun. XD


Seismic Stomp alternatives

I have no idea what your meta is like, but a possible card in place of Seismic Stomp would be Destructive Tampering . It's 1 CMC more, but if artifacts become a problem for you, the added flexibility might be worth it. Possible sideboard card?

If you're in a flyer-heavy meta (in which case Stomp isn't very good), some alternatives for Stomp, all at 3 CMC, are: Goblin War Cry (and the creature they choose you can easily deal with), Incite Hysteria if you tend to face more one- to two-color decks, and Ruthless Invasion in an artifact-light meta.

If you want to stick with Seismic Stomp , then consider Falter instead. Same CMC and effect, but it's strictly better as an instant.


Tail Slash alternatives

Fall of the Hammer is 1 CMC less than Tail Slash and Soul's Fire can hit ANY target for the same CMC.

A possible win-con with Zada out would be Chandra's Ignition . You'll kill all your own creatures, too, so it's effectively a boardwipe (though with Otherworldly Outburst it's a one-sided wipe), but who cares when you're Fling ing multiple creatures with power 3 and 4 at your opponents' faces!! Good in multiplayer, if that's your jam. I'd only put in 1-2, since it has 5 CMC.


Other cards for Zada

Rile is amazing for drawing cards! Sure, it'll kill some of your smaller dudes, and the trample doesn't really matter to you. But it basically reads "{R} -- Draw cards equal to the number of creatures you control." For red, that's a good thing, especially to re-fuel in the late game. Maybe 1-2.

Dynacharge and Weapon Surge are easy to Overload if Zada isn't out, but with her out they cost less mana, which can matter quite often. First Strike is less of a big deal if no one can block, so Dynacharge's +2 is better, BUT Surge's overload is cheaper. Possible replacements for Otherworldly Outburst if you find the Overload useful.

Also, imagine casting either of those on the same turn as cards like Fall of the Hammer and Soul's Fire !

So without the use of Fling or any sort of Trample, how exactly do you plan to get around chump blockers or basic creature removal?

I still think you have too many suboptimal cards. Lightning Bolt is a strict upgrade over Shock , Soul's Fire / Reckless Abandon is worse than Fling and Seething Song / Mark of Mutiny does nothing. Arc Runner is also terrible because it can be easily blocked and it becomes 3 mana do nothing.

A good rule to abide by is to make sure your deck does one thing well, and only that one thing. Your deck right now is a bit all over the place, and there is a glaring flaw where you have no real way to refill your hand. Your sideboard is also weak to White Weenie, which is a popular deck right now so Electrickery is compulsory. I also don't see a situation where Perilous Myr can be boarded in. As a rule, sideboard is where you run hate cards, and tech against hate.

Try to look up the Izzet Blitz list. You definitely need more card draw just in case your first barrage doesn't kill.

Cut: Soul's Fire , Shock , Arc Runner , Perilous Myr , Mark of Mutiny , Seething Song , Reckless Abandon , Sure Strike , 2x Fireblast , 2x Ghitu Lavarunner and Thermo-Alchemist

Run: 4x Lightning Bolt , 3x Temur Battle Rage , 3x Nivix Cyclops , 3x Kiln Fiend , 3x Gush , 2x Ponder , 2x Fling , 2x Opt , 2x Gitaxian Probe , 2x Mutagenic Growth

Consider also running some dual lands such as Swiftwater Cliffs . Cycle lands are a good idea but Lonely Sandbar is better than Desert of the Mindful .

Sideboard: 4x Apostle's Blessing , 3x Counterspell , 2x Dispel , 3x Electrickery , 3x Tormod's Crypt ,

I think Fling would help as (at least in my meta) there is a lot more control and the fight is going to the air.

@M_Malcom

Thanks for your comment:)

If I used Thud or Fling one of then would have to be in your deck at least 17 cards down because if they are in your hand the crasher will mill you out and you will lose on your draw unless you responded with fling at instant speed which may be a possibility so I will look into it. Also I did not want to make this deck a copy of the infamous 11.7% deck:) Not to mention winning with a maniac is so much more fun:)

Thanks again and happy tapping:)

Might I suggest replacing maniac with a Thud or Fling and switching the lands to mountains

Cool take on the steal and sack. I play something similar on MtG Arena (Chaos and Sacrifice (MTGA Deck)). Difference is that my sac outlet is Makeshift Munitions and I run Fiery Cannonade to help with token and aggro deck. I used to run Demon of Catastrophes but it would rarely get the chance to do any damage. Thud would often sit in my hand while I had nothing to sacrifice with. Open the Graves and Midnight Reaper works really well when I'm chain sacking Reassembling Skeleton with Makeshift Munitions. Overall it runs pretty well but I don't think it's reached it full potential yet. Looking forward to see if Rakdos, Orsov and Grull will bring anything cool to add to the deck, maybe a reprint of Fling?
