Forked Bolt Discussion

First, welcome to Modern!

I'm normally on Ponza or Infect, so please take my inputs with healthy skepticism. But here are some thoughts from the other side of the table:

You might want to check with GoblinsMTG on Reddit too.

Draw well!

Update, 1/4/18, in preparation for the next Geek Fortress 1K.

Lightning Berserker -> Seal of Fire

Searing Blaze -> Tarfire

Fire Ambush -> Shock

Harsh Mentor -> Forked Bolt

My toughest matchups were against other aggro decks. Because of that, I'm upping the speed of this list. Rivals cards to be added when the set releases.

Yo, guys, whaddup?

I just got some new cards and I'm running a test with 1 Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip and 1 Forked Bolt. I took off one land, as suggested.

I still couldn't get any Chart a Course neither Disrupting Shoal, but they're on my watchlist. These look really decent here.

I'm having such a good time playing this, so I really want to push temur tempo-ish delver into my competitive modern metagame.

Keep in touch!

This is a sweet brew!

Might be worth having Fatal Push in the SB for Death's Shadow. Could also look at Forked Bolt -- can kill a blocker and deal a damage, or if you're lucky kill two blockers.

Good stuff!

Hey ej133, thank you for your feedback! Truth be told, this deck is a thought experiment at this point and something I'd like to build but can't afford at the moment.

You raise a good point regarding Blood Moon, and it is something I've considered being a problem as well. Since this build only runs 6 fetches, and just 4 can grab an Island, it may be that Blood Moon is untenable in this build. I did add the 19th land to the board for that reason, but it may not be enough.

As for Opt, it may be that the deck wants to run some number of them, but Serum Visions is a must-play in Delver for ensuring that it flips. I did consider Opt instead of Peek, and that may be the correct choice.

I did initially have Electrolyze in this list instead of one of the Forked Bolt. I'm not particularly sold on Forked Bolt as my 5th and 6th burn spell because it is Sorcery speed.

I haven't seen many other Temur Delver lists running Izzet Charm, and it may be that card is just bad here, but it appears to do a lot of things we want: digs for cards and fuels Delve, creature burn, or noncreature countermagic.

Again, I really appreciate your feedback, and I'd love to hear any other thoughts you have on the deck. Thanks!

A lot of those cards ARE NOT PAUPER LEGAL.. for example:

False Demise Eternal Warrior Sisters of the Flame

And many many more. Been printed as common once dont always made a card legal on pauper, it has to been printed as common on mtgo.

A lot of good common paper card are not pauper legal ( most important are sinkhole - Hymn to Tourach - High Tide - Mystic Remora - Goblin Grenade - Forked Bolt - Darkness - Ashnod's Altar )

And otherwise a lot of good pauper card are not legal on paper but just on mtgo. ;)

Manlands for one. (Lavaclaw Reaches, and Ghitu Encampment. Planeswalkers that do damage. Burn spells like Lightning Bolt, Forked Bolt etc. The deck is fairly mid-rangy with Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Goblin Dark-Dwellers and so on. It does have less than favorable matches against Baral Storm, Lantern Control, and Ad Naseum. It has ok matches against control depending on what you draw and what your opponent draws.

If you're struggling specifically against Lingering Souls 1/1 Spirit tokens, Forked Bolt is 1 mana and effectively deals with 2 tokens.
