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.

SB CHANGE: -1 Curfew, +1 Pyroblast. Not seeing Bogles anymore, but do want to keep the pocket SB card in Curfew for them. Also works well against Inside Out, and is fine against Gurmag Angler decks.

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!

+4 Incinerate +4 Fireblast, -4 Shock -4 Lightning Strike. For SB, +4 Forked Bolt

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.

also i think that Forked Bolt should be Rift Bolt

Good luck! I hope that I was some help!

Opt is so much worse than Brainstorm, Ponder or Preordain.

Also, why no Lightning Bolt? Gotta have it, so good.

Also: Forked Bolt is not pauper legal, see link:

mastermew on Sideboard hate against Zoo while ...

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.

After looking up a few decklists, it doesn't seem like Big Zoo is running Tarmogoyf. This is good for Grixis. Because then they only have Loxodon Smiter and Knight of the Reliquary to be bigger than Anger of the Gods, and maybe some fringe like 1 Baneslayer Angel. I think I'd approach the matchup like 5 color humans, except that counterspells are still useful. Spell Snare especially.

It also looks like Bloodbraid is taking the spot of Collected Company. This is even better because I used to board in Dispel against Zoo because of Path to Exile and Collected Company. Now I will no longer look silly for drawing Dispel against their hand of all creatures.

With your deck, I'd venture to say it's less a problem of sideboarding and more a problem with mainboard tuning. Electrolyze and Forked Bolt line up very poorly against Zoo. Remand doesn't really do anything against them. They're all great cards vs Mardu Pyromancer, but I don't think I like them against most of modern right now.

I really like the Spellskites in your sideboard vs Zoo. Definitely board those in. They can sit in front of Wild Nacatl all game long until they redirect a Path to Exile from Gurmag Angler to themselves. I admit I don't like Spellskite vs the meta, but vs Zoo it's amazing.
