bricek10 So...what are you supposed to do if they counter Kiln Fiend with 1 mana on the stack? I'd agree with TOASTYY that Dispel might be better in this deck.

So I've ordered my deck online and It came in the mail. I've tries it with my friends and so far it consistently wins. It hits hard and fast, and has plenty of drawing to speed things along to make sure I have what I need on hand.

An example wombo-combo is Turn 2 Kiln Fiend, go to turn 3. Play Assault Strobe + Artful Dodge or Slip Through Space + Other (Mizzium Skin, Lightning Bolt, flashing back Artful dodge, etc...) for a total of three triggers resulting in a 10/10 double strike unblockable and possibly hexproof/protection to removal on turn three. It's a lot of pieces that have to come together, but it's glorious when it does.

I don't know how "competitive" it actually is, but it does seem to work really well against most kitchen table decks at my LGS.

Backinthefrey on building instant/sorcery burn

1 week ago

i'm building a mono red burn deck, largely based around instants and sorceries. And i'm looking for good creatures to put in it. stuff like Kiln Fiend and Guttersnipe. i need creatures that will either benefit from me playing instants and sorceries, or add to the benefit

Seems pretty creature heavy given what you're shooting for, I think. Take advantage of the blue with some bounce and/or counter (Mana Leak, Syncopate, Vapor Snag, another Cyclonic Rift). I would pick the Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind over dracogenius if you're wanting to do things with card draw and maybe some Faithless Looting, Desperate Ravings, or Dangerous Wager, maybe Browbeat or Reforge the Soul . Kiln Fiend and Nivix Cyclops are killer, especially with a few Artful Dodge, which has that nice flashback. Maybe drop the Wee Dragonauts since you've already got a playset of Stormchaser Mage and the 2 Enigma Drake. Maybe cut down on the number of Bloodwater Entity and replace them with instants or sorceries. It's nice to pull from the graveyard, I like Mystic Retrieval for that since the flashback means I don't feel bad about discarding it.

I realize I just wrote a lot. I'm currently working on converting my vintage Izzet to modern so these are things I've been thinking about recently anyways. Hope at least a little bit of this is helpful.

Great pumped-by-spells creatures, if you decide to go that route:
Monastery Swiftspear
Kiln Fiend
Stormchaser Mage
Thing in the Ice  Flip (around which my deck is built - Izzet Maddening?)

...often played alongside such shenanigans as:
Temur Battle Rage
Assault Strobe
Distortion Strike
Slip Through Space

...but that would be going a much different direction for you, probably.

FreeTheTacos on Green red "pump"eler

Vaan is mostly right. I'd say you're mostly making a Izzet Blitz type deck, just with the wrong creatures. If you want to go with infect creatures, you'll probably end up blue green or blue black green. If you want to go with normal creatures, your two best creature choices are Kiln Fiend and Nivix Cyclops. Both strategies are viable, but infect can be a bit pricey.
If you just want to make the best green red pump deck you can, at least consider Temur Battle Rage

Can't recommend Spark Elemental.

It's worse than Lava Spike is almost evert situation you can find.

If you want to win fast, I recommend you either remove most of the combo-ish interactions, or you take the Kiln Fiend rout.

aleister23 on R.U. WEIRD

I think you can get away with less lands, as you only really need one to start the combo.

I used to play the following cards in my weirdstorm deck:Visions of Beyond fills your hand, Peek to look out for counters/removal, Ideas Unbound reads draw three for UU during combo turn, Thought Scour mainly to enable visions, Kiln Fiend as a backup

Just some thoughts, good luck
