Forked Bolt Discussion

Electrodominance can be copied. The value of X for the copy will be the same of the original.
When you copy any spell that has an X defined by a cost (such as Electrodominance or Channeled Force), the copy will maintain that X value. Note that you are not casting a spell why you copy it, so you don't pay that cost again. Similarly, copying a spell that has you choose modes (ie Izzet Charm) or a spell that has you divide something (ie Forked Bolt) will create a copy of that spell with the same decisions. For example, copying an Izzet Charm where you chose the third mode will create a copy that is using the third mode too.
One note about the specific interaction about the titular cards, if you cast Electrodominance with X equaling 2, you can cast Fork with it to target Electrodominance. Unfortunately, Fork will fizzle. By the time Fork tries to resolve, Electrodominance is no longer on the stack, so Fork won't be able to copy it.
Hope this helps!!

EDIT: I was being daft last night exclude Manamorphose as it is a two color deck Also if you are going for budget forget about Mishra's Bauble Keep 2xKiln Fiend, if you really think you'll get yo re-cast him with Lurrus later on, it is a good card
Now for the changes:
Lightning Helix doesnt often play in the prowess deck because it is 2 mana but its such a cool card and its great in mirror match ups
you will need to change the mana base to 4x sunbaked canyon 3x sacred foundry 4x Arid Mesa 1x wooded foothills and 3x inspiring vantage 3x mountain
Lava dart is invaluable in this deck as you can trigger prowess 4 times with 2 mountains
your call if you want to remove 2x skewer for an extra 2
You can now play an extra 2 spells, ideally with this deck it should be Mishra's Bauble
Hope this helps!

Yeah, I think Bolt would be a more major consideration for the MB than the mini-sweepers. I just hate having 100% dead cards if I can avoid it.
Maybe even Forked Bolt?

In response to the Lava Dart suggestion, have you thought about Forked Bolt ? It allows versatile removal(2 X/1s, or an X/2), as well as Player damage, while also serving as a potential Heroic Trigger, for your own Creatures, if you so choose. Satyr Hoplite would get the +1/+1 counter before receiving the damage, so the effective Toughness would remain the same, while boosting its Power.

Hollow Pheonix is pretty bad right now and a crummy Forked Bolt likely wont change that. I do believe that a mono red pheonix list would run it though as a 2-3 of.

captainamerica: Yes, unfortunately IAmTheWraith is correct. Can't play any additional creatures, or the whole Polymorph gimmick won't work. I am considering putting in 4 polymorph's in leiu of that though.

Some things for me to consider:
So far the only one I'm immediately considering switching is #2. #3 will require testing and I'm sure is more meta-dependent because I don't think there's a flat-out better choice between the 2. It may just end up needing to be a "flex" creature slot.
