Forked Bolt Discussion
1 week ago
Something I have found to work with my Dino’s is Farseek plus Canopy Vista and Cinder Glade. I put a fair number of Basic Forest in for them (I’m leaning mainly G/R+w). Also having more basics than maybe normal gives plenty for ranging Raptors to grab. I’ll often find if the game is going much past turn 6, I’ll have two basics out for sure and then those dual “battle” lands come in untapped.
Another interesting land choice I am loving is Desert. Ping Ripjaw or Ranging, ping their creature each turn. Lots of versatility for that card in this specific deck.
Creature wise I have many thoughts on that front. For now I would try 4 Thrashing Brontodon. It’s a great body being a 3/4 and with your heavy lean towards Dino cost reduction, will likely be just GG every game. Then in the pinch you have that convenience of sacking to get rid of a problem artifact or enchantment.
My favourite ping spell right now is definitely Forked Bolt. The sheer versatility is amazing and feels especially good when draw a card and playing a land for only one R.
I’ve got many other thoughts on this deck type from my testing. Last but not least, one of my newer testing cards Skarrg, the Rage Pits.

Does Forked Bolt hit a single target once with 2 dmg or does it hit twice with 1 dmg?

Sweet deck brew. Would love to try something like this out.
Just an idea reading the comment above, Dual Shot be a suitable idea since Forked Bolt isn't legal? Or maybe add an Electrickery mainboard or something to deal with Delver's stuff. What we REALLY need is the trilands from Shards of Alara and Khans of Tarkir (Mystic Monastery pls) downshifted so true, non tron/affinity 3 colour decks can shine in Pauper.

Wizards, we need Forked Bolt legal in pauper. Like most decks, this one struggles against Delver, and there's not a lot of good stuff we can do to keep up against either U or UR.
I could go up to more Pyroblasts in SB, but unless we get a fast draw with removal, it's pretty dang tough.
I feel like Deprive could be replaced by Lightning Bolt. What do you guys think? I occasionally get value from bouncing back an Ash Barrens if I had to play it to make a land drop, but probably in <5% of games. And then occasional value against discard decks.
As always, cheers!

I really like what you going for but I think that it needs to be refocused, Goblin Guide is really out of place, I think for your creatures I would run 4 titi, 4 peezy and then 2 Nimble Obstructionist or maybe a Crackling Drake as a 1 -1 split with obstructionist! I'm really excited to see it in modern as a izzet finisher!
Pyromancer Ascension is pretty out of place without a solid way to fill your yard, i would just drop it for 2 land
for your spells you should have at least 8-10 cantrips, 4 Serum Visions is a must, and then some combination of Opt, Thought Scour (if you switch to Logic Knot) and then maybe Chart a Course. to make room for this i would drop Deprive to a 2-3 of, Electrolyze to a 1-2, all of Ionize for 2 Logic Knot and then Risk Factor to a 2-3 of.
Good luck! I hope that I was some help!

Also, why no Lightning Bolt? Gotta have it, so good.
Also: Forked Bolt is not pauper legal, see link: https://scryfall.com/card/roe/146/forked-bolt

thank you ToolmasterOfBrainerd for the advice!
Yeah, I know Remand can be good as well as Electrolyze, but I am not sure if I want to keep the Forked Bolt. I am toying with the idea of a 3rd Terminate or a MB Dispel, possibly even 1 Logic Knot. I could maybe go 2 Logic Knots and go down a Mana Leak.
Pretty much what I am getting so far is that game 1 is a L to zoo when it comes to Grixis Delver.
