SimplyG on Makin' Your Wizz Burn

19 hours ago

If I may offer some suggestions. I have played UR Wizard Burn in Modern and currently have a Jeskai Wizards build with Naban, Dean of Iteration , an Izzet Wizard Deck with Adeliz, the Cinder Wind , and a spell slinger deck with Niv-Mizzet, Parun in standard. Each have their own similarities, but mostly play very, very differently. When I look at this list, I feel like you aren't focused enough on one particular area to be effective. You've got some pieces from one game plan and some pieces from other game plans. Consider the following ways you can go:

  • The first variation is a super aggro deck built around Adeliz. You throw down little, aggressive wizards like Siren Stormtamer , Ghitu Lavarunner , and Viashino Pyromancer and get some early damage in. Then, when the time is right, you slam Adeliz, attack with everyone, throw all your cheap burn spells at your opponent's face, and deal like 30 damage in a single turn. Adeliz needs such cheap wizards to go wide quickly and cheap spells to "storm off" with her, that I don't even include Wee Dragonauts and Aven Wind Mage in my deck because I feel like they are too expensive.

  • The second variation is a slower, burn them over time plan using cards like Guttersnipe , Goblin Electromancer , Electrostatic Field , Niv-Mizzet, and Murmuring Mystic . This build is essentially a counter-burn deck which controls the board state and slowly kills the opponent with incremental damage using the creatures above.

  • The third variation is built around Naban. I know you don't have Naban on this list, but have all of his best students: Merfolk Trickster , Viashino Pyromancer , and Exclusion Mage . This is a tempo deck where you gain value off of your wizards and blink them over and over again with Siren's Ruse or, if you're Jeskai, Justiciar's Portal .

  • Finally, this isn't a wizards build, but people keep mentioning them so I figured I should too, and that is a deck using Crackling Drake and Enigma Drake . Aside from having Goblin Electromancer , I don't think it really has anything to do with Wizards perse, but it does play similarly. I played the double drake deck when Ravnica first came out and I did so without Arclight Phoenix because I couldn't afford it. The goal of this deck is just to slam a Drake and make sure it survives while slowly powering it up. There are more tempoy builds which are more aggressive and slower, more control builds.

I hope this helps. Having a single strategy in mind really helps refine decks and give them a ton more consistency. Figure out what style of play you like best and I would hone in on that. Or you could be like me and just build them all! Wizards is my favorite tribe.

+1 for amazing name. Maybe try +4 Shock , +4 Aven Wind Mage -2 Ghitu Journeymage -2 Goblin Electromancer (because not too many spells that benefit) -2 Naban, Dean of Iteration (because isn't utilized too much) and -2 Naru Meha, Master Wizard (because high cost and little benefit). Seems like a fun deck, have a great day!

I suggest Guttersnipe , and Lava Coil . You shuold try Goblin Electromancer - Trust me, it's really useful. You might get out Lava Axe and Lava Coil early game if you use them. Also, do use and Enigma Drake or Crackling Drake .

Xica on Simic Merfolk

Well Growth Spiral is great in decks, that would love to have 4 mana on turn 3, and be able to either play turn 2 Remand or turn 3 Cryptic Command / Jace, the Mind Sculptor Unless there is some payoff, i don't think its worth the slot.

Deeproot Champion is a great card, but its not a great merfolk card. Its the second playset of Quirion Dryad at least for decks that used to play that card. I really don't see why it would mesh well with merfolk in general.

Also please consider the saying that "a modern deck needs to be able to - even if very rarely - goldfish turn 3 wins, or have interaction*". Right now interaction against graveyard decks is a MUST, its ok if you can devote enough sideboard space, but its much better if you have something mainboard like Scavenging Ooze . And you must have answers for creatures, modern is a creature centric format, and without that you can easily be prey to a LOT of decks.

*By interaction i mean doing anything that screws up their strategy, it doesn't matter if you Fatal Push Goblin Electromancer against storm, or you simply name blue/red with Iona, Shield of Emeria , both are interactions enough.

Poaralion on $25 Drakes

For a -budget- deck, this is looking reaaally good !

I don't see why 3x Wizard's Lightning tho. Only Goblin Electromancer can reduce their cost. If you're playing them for burn, traditional Shock could do the trick and be more consistent and if it's for removal Lava Coil is pretty bonkers. I feel that way at least.

Thousand-Year Storm is looking weird as a lonely 1 of here. By the time it hits the battelfield, you hand is prolly empty and you don't have that much tools to combo off with it.

Have you ever looked at Dive Down ? Cheap spell to pump the drakes and great protection !

hejtmane on Niv Mizzet wants to self improve

Not Primal Amulet  Flip seems like it would be a great card with a Niz build; reduces spell cost and then it becomes a land when you use it's mana on a spell it copies the spell I think it is better than Goblin Electromancer but that is me.

Have you thought about unlimited hand size examples Reliquary Tower Spellbook and Thought Vessel may be helpful may not I have only run Niz in standard which is different then commander.

Good Luck

SeekerofSecrets: I never thought of starting mono red and building into U/R! That’s a great idea! Thank you so much!!! Small side note, would there be no point in splashing blue early for Goblin Electromancer ?
