Hordeling Outburst Discussion

I think the deck is really solid. But I would argue that in this exact strategy Purphoros, God of the Forge is probably a little stronger than Torbran, Thane of Red Fell . If your plan is to maximize on ETB's. He's a lot harder to kill and since in this deck Torbran, Thane of Red Fell really needs to live for a turn that matters a lot. I think Torbran, Thane of Red Fell really shines in decks where you play him then alpha. As opposed to play him wait for a turn then Hordeling Outburst .

Dreadhorde Arcanist / Young Pyromancer ; strong and meta, but end up defining any deck they are in. Break Through the Line is an interesting enabler, but cards that aren't dealing damage are a little weak here.

I'd suggest cutting the small burn spells like Lightning Bolt (which would be tantamount to heresy in any other format) because they're just not very impactful in edh. I'd suggest replacing them with mass burn spells like Blasphemous Act . Spells that don't hit flyers like Magmaquake and Molten Disaster are especially useful since Dragons are virtually all flyers. I'd also cut Hordeling Outburst , Dragon Fodder and Imminent Doom , since they don't really gel with what you're trying to do here. Instead I'd suggest either more ramp (like Wayfarer's Bauble and Burnished Hart ) or recovery cards, (such as Elixir of Immortality )

Dragonspeaker Shaman is needed cost reduction for your scaled beasties though looking on Card Kingdom.com, the price on this is a bit higher than I would have guessed. Would still be a very good investment for the deck.
Icon of Ancestry is an anthem and search for more dragons.
You really need more artifact ramp here. Budget options [under $1] include: Star Compass , Mana Geode , Pillar of Origins and Hedron Archive . If you're willing to bump up and spend more than $1 per rock: Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Wayfarer's Bauble and Fire Diamond are more powerful options. Sol Ring is an obvious choice as well and if you can afford to splurge on one, I would.
By Force is a really nice mass artifact removal spell that will go a long way towards slowing down the table to give you time to launch the dragon airforce.
Too bad on Sundial of the Infinite , it would really make the deck much better by mitigating Zirilan's drawback.

Honestly Legion Warboss has been on the chopping block for that exact reason. I've been wondering if something like Hordeling Outburst or Krenko's Command would be better due to Cavalcade also mass triggers for Foundry Street Denizen .

now as for this deck itself, i'd heavily recommend cutting Krenko, Mob Boss for Goblin Chieftain , trade Lavastep Raider for Goblin Piledriver , cut 4 mountain for Lightning Bolt , and trade the enchantments and Hordeling Outburst for 4 Krenko's Command and 4 Throne of the God-Pharaoh

3) That works.
I also like Hordeling Outburst . They don't get exiled or sacrificed, but if you're making good trades, you shouldn't have to worry about 1/1s.

guero388 Thank you for the comment! Honestly, I haven't had too much time to play/test recently, but previous experience helps with the new decks as well. Mardu Pyromancer is a very particular build that often rewards experience of the match up to understand timing and sequencing. Most decks in Modern become more rewarding and more powerful based on the time invested. Stick with it! And, if it's not your cup of tea later, take a break, try something else, and find your niche.
Mellro I am very excited about Eldraine (mainly for the classic European fantasy theme, but also the big changes that will come to Modern). Chandra, Acolyte of Flame will need more testing, but I am always hesitant about Planeswalkers in Mardu Pyromancer. I have seen (and we could still use): Liliana of the Veil , Liliana, the Last Hope , Nahiri, the Harbinger , and Chandra, Torch of Defiance . I ask myself: "What does Chandra, Acolyte of Flame add to the build that these other Planeswalkers don't?" First, basic +1 ability does nothing for advantage, unless we start running Mardu/Boros Super Friends with Nahiri, the Harbinger , Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded , or any of the Chandra variants. The second ability (+0) does give us hasty tokens, but we have to sacrifice them, so only 2 damage is mediocre. I don't think Mardu Pyromancer is a token deck, per se, but it uses tokens to out value and out grind the opponent, through chump blocking and chip damage. Also, if we wanted a 3 cmc token generator, we would run Hordeling Outburst . The "ultimate" (-2) is actually one of the reasons I would consider running her, if only to consistently use Ransack the Lab for recursion and grinding. However, the deck runs at a slow, consistent rate, that we aren't trying to get rid of our hand incredibly quickly. Also, we run Bedlam Reveler and Seasoned Pyromancer for hand card advantage. I don't think we need Chandra, Acolyte of Flame .
Mellro touching on the new lands from Eldraine, specifically the Mardu colors: Castle Ardenvale is too expensive (in cost and requirement) for just 1 token. Castle Locthwain may be ok on an empty hand (and I would consider it), but Mardu Pyromancer usually doesn't run out of cards, unless Hazoret the Fervent is on the field and encourages emptying the hand. Castle Embereth is not bad on an established board. However, it feels like a "win-more" card, and Mardu Pyromancer (in my opinion) isn't a token deck looking to pump an endless amount of tokens on board; its purpose (again, in my opinion) is to outlast and out grind the opponent. Basically, tokens are like a cherry on top of a VALUE sundae. Castle Locthwain is the one I would consider, if only to give the option to dig for an answer. At this point, spending 3 mana to draw one card might be a bit of a heavy price. I would need to test them more.
saturn999 Thanks for the enthusiasm! We are still out here going strong!
Thanks again for your comments! The Modern Meta Match-Ups section is improving and I hope to have it completely done here soon!
