I helped my friend build a similar deck that's similarly scary.

Boros Charm is amazing in it, and in general it's way better than Assault Strobe even at 1 more mana simply because it can do 4 damage by itself right when your opponent is about to stabilize.

Fling Is really good for this strategy too. Another card that's surprisingly awesome in this kind of deck is Grafted Wargear . Your creatures die in 1 turn anyways, so who cares about that unattach trigger?

Fling is the best way to sac this guy. - May as well do 10 damage as it wipes the board. :)

i like it, for a really low budget, it's really good XD I want to do something like that. You gave me some idea (mainly with Assault Strobe , Relentless Assault and Fling ). Thx :D

Steel Golem has the same ability as Grid Monitor, but cheaper to play and less of a threat to handle. I'd put some thought about adding in Fling , Ghostly Flicker is a card to consider, Culling Dais for draw, and my personal favorite, Jinxed Idol . Watch your opponent rage :D

I like your take on the creature theft gimmick, especially with blue +1. Take a look at mines with R/B: Let Me Just Take Your Creatures ($5 Budget Deck!)

I've been working on a very similar deck, except mine doesn't quite have enough ramp, so I'm using yours for inspiration.

Have you thought about cards like Eye of the Storm , Possibility Storm , or Teferi's Realm ? The latter can be used to shut down opponent creatures or artifacts, whereas the first can be used to your advantage as you should have the most instants/sorceries in the game. I also like Bosium Strip and Mnemonic Wall for replaying cards from graveyard.

I've been running mine with cards like Thieves' Auction , Hive Mind , and Conjured Currency for extra shenanigans. I've been using the Spellheart Chimera / Runechanter's Pike + Fling thing as well for extra damage, it might work well in this deck but might not, you do run more artifacts than I do. Leyline of Punishment works really well for my meta; if yours is similar I'd consider it. Speaking of, Leyline of Anticipation is great too.

I took this deck to a local standard tournament and I won 8 out of the 10 games that I played and came in 4th out of 10 players. I feel like that's pretty good for a deck that has only two rare cards. (if you swap out the two Chandra's Phoenix for two Guttersnipe it would have zero rares and might even work better)

When I play casual and don't need standard, I swap out Traitorous Instinct and Portent of Betrayal for Mark of Mutiny and Traitorous Blood . They cost 1 less and make it easier to get the combo off. I also get 4 Fling rather than Bubbling Cauldron and Chandra's Phoenix because when you steal big creatures, it's nice to do big damage.

emask Thanks! I actually got a burn deck that's built around using Act of Treason , Traitorous Blood , etc and then Fling ing them for extra damage/removal. I don't think that I want to necessarily add more of those cards here, though. I just want something to pump up Scourge of Skola Vale . Might choose to lose Mage Slayer for more burn though. shrug
