Great Furnace Discussion
2 days ago
So first up, consistancy is pretty key. You should be playing 4 copies of Seat of the Synod, Great Furnace and at least 2 of Darksteel Citadel. For other lands, something like Spire of Industry is solid, or fastlands or duals or whatever.
Then 4 Frogmite and 4 Myr Enforcer. Big cheap dudes. Think of the artifact lands as tapping for 2 to pay for them. You can also probably do something with Scale of Chiss-Goria/Tooth of Chiss-Goria as enablers for Metalwork Colossus.

euananddalesaccount thanks for the suggestions. Great Furnace would be an excellent substitution to help reduce cost. I'm still not sure about Brainstorm. It would be at its best with shuffle effects like Evolving Wilds, that way you don't get Brainstorm-locked. Another consideration would be Transmute tutors, to help find Jace's Erasure.

The equipping cost on Cranial Plating can be done at instant speed. Most equipments can only be equipped at sorcery speed, so when you see an equipment that says Equip, it means you have to pay 1 of anything to equip at sorcery speed. On Cranial Plating however it has another activated ability that can be done at instant speed for . The advantage here is that you can instant equip to another creature that isn't being blocked before damage. In Modern Affinity decks, they use cards like Glimmervoid, Spire of Industry, and Springleaf Drum to help pay the difficult . If you make your deck casual to keep Counterspell instead of making it modern legal, you can add the artifact lands too to add to your artifact count and help mana fixing, Seat of the Synod, Vault of Whispers, Great Furnace, Ancient Den, and Tree of Tales.

Awesome deck. I have a mono red dragon deck with Zirilan as well (not fully updated on this site though).
Some cards you def need:
Braid of Fire - a growing pool of red mana.
Conjurer's Closet - Use this on a dragon you've tutored for with Zirilan and poof, you don't lose the dragon.
Hoarding Dragon - Finds conjurer's closet or other Artifacts
Mirrorpool - Can also be used to copy a creature that you've tutored for with Zirilan, a copy that you get to keep.
Mudslide - All your stuff flies...
Hellkite Tyrant - An alternate wincon
Good Luck +1

Yeah. Unless I miscounted Baral would only help with 16 of your spells. As much as I love Baral, he can take the hit. Magus is just sooooooooo much better.

Thanks, hoardofnotions! Yeah, in general this deck typically tries to kill with commander damage as quickly as possible, but has other beats as backup, so Mistfire Adept is good for giving evasion to Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest.
I don't have any Snow-Covered Mountains in this deck because the average price for each version is above $2, and that's the limit for my local budget playgroup. You make a good point about artifact lands, which I had in the deck to synergize with Metallurgic Summonings. I replaced the Seat of the Synod with Faerie Conclave and Great Furnace with Swiftwater Cliffs (often better than Izzet Guildgate). My deck is mostly blue, but I'm keeping all the vivid lands since fixing for a three-color deck can be challenging.
I agree with you on Arcane Denial over Hindering Light. Oona's Grace seems a bit weak, and since I don't think I'll typically have more than 4 cards to exile from my graveyard, I think I'd rather have Plea for Power than Treasure Cruise.
What do you think? And thank you for the recommendations!
