As an additional cost to play Fling, sacrifice a creature.

Fling deals damage equal to the sacrificed creature's power to target creature or player.

Fling Discussion

Ty, I considered the Goblin Grenade , but I worry that can be a dead card in quite a few situations. I'd probably need to add more goblins or more things that chunk enemies. I'd have to do a semi-rework of the deck.

Fling was also considered, but I have relatively low creature powers that it becomes a bad card.

In answer to your question - yes the ability will be triggered. Shroud (and hexproof from an opponent's point of view) don't allow you to target the permanent. If the ability stated: "Whenever an opponent is stated noncombat damage, target creature gets +3/+0 until end of turn" it wouldn't work but since there is no targetting going on its fine.

Also, I would look into swapping Vengeful Rebirth out for something like Regrowth . I appreciate the damage is nice but its too high CMC for the build. You could also look into things like Fling for the spitfire - offload a bunch of damage spells into an opponent, swing with the spitfire and then Fling it for lethal. Again, fling doesn't target so it gets around shroud as you "sacrifice a creature", not "sacrifice target creature".

I think that one or two Early Harvest s might also be worthwhile here.

Some ways I think that can help improve this deck are to add a full set of Serum Visions . You may also want some more burn in the deck as well (it may drop your curve a bit more even though it's still at a good curve). You can probably drop 2 of your Reverberate 's for the other 2 Serum Visions .

I also read some of the old comments from your deck, and I think Jamesfurrow has really helped a lot with improving your deck. His deck "Izzet" modern ready? is a very good build of a U/R Modern deck!

I did however notice that he had suggested Lightning Strike or Searing Spear as second good burn spells (which they really are). However, I think Incinerate is much than both since it's the same thing, just that if you target a Creature; it can't be Regenerated (just wanted to point that out).

You also mentioned that when you had Goblin Electromancer in the deck; you ran Brimstone Volley to potentially deal 5 damage for R. By using Serum Visions and Magma Jet 's Scry, you can use Thunderous Wrath as a 2 of. Cast it for it's Miracle cost and it's 5 damage for R!

I also like the Fling and Wee Dragonauts combo!

Lastly, I'd like to suggest Browbeat ! I think it's a great card as it deals either 5 damage or draws you 3 cards. These are both options you want to have in this kind of deck. Even though it's 2R CMC and your opponent probably won't make the choice that you want them too; it'll work in your favor anyway as they'll either take a lot of damage or you'll draw cards and might draw some more burn to equal the 5 damage they didn't take! So either way; it's a win/win situation and that's why I love the card!

+1 for the deck! Feel free to check out my deck Izzet Working? for some suggestions, and tips!

If it were an Instant, like Fling , it may be worthwhile. It has potential in the right deck, but I think it'll be a very niche card if so.

Cool deck, building something similar myself. Have you considered using Fling instead or along with the Shrapnel Blast ? It will work with Ensoul Artifact and Darksteel Citadel as well + gives your Scuttling Doom Engine extra one damage when sacrificed.

imo, drop Phyresis and black altogether.
4x Harrow , 4x Giant Growth (or a similar buff), 4x Familiar Ground , 4x Act of Treason , 4x Harness by Force (yes 8 creature stealers), 4x Fling .
