Lava Axe Discussion

While this is true, Lava Axe costs 3 more to cast than Shrapnel Blast and as you could see from their discussions up there, pulling of the combo with the limited mana he has is already hard hahaha

Lava Axe also deals 5 damage , so it could be a replacement for Shrapnel Blast

darkblur on Instant Aggro

Im not sure what I would change here but first of all, if this is supposed to be an aggro deck what are defenders doing here? Secondly, don't get overhyped with many khans/FRF cards. You can find more better cards in older blocks. Collateral Damage isn't good here, youre not using any tokens to sacrifice. Add 3 Hordeling Outburst - they can cast Stoke the Flames and then keep 2-3 Collateral Damage Sacrificing any other creature for this spell seems to be bad for me. Add 2 Magma Spray, Wild Slash to mainboard. Remove completely Rakshasa's Disdain or at least leave it with 1 copy. About Cancel, here I have perfect example - Dissolve - card doing completely same thing, with same CMC and adding a scry. Remove completely Lava Axe - tooo expensive, also limited to hit players only. Same with Jeskai Runemark. Staff of the Mind Magus - interesting card, however if it is an aggro deck you shouldn't spend your mana to heal yourself - rather deal damage until Siege Rhino will appear of the board. Rise of Eagles - out - on turn 6 you want to finish game, not summon 2x 2/2 with flying. About creatures's most difficult part. For sure 4x Spellheart Chimera, 4x Monastery Swiftspear 4x Triton Shorestalker 4xFrost Walker. Consider adding cheap buffs with great power - Titan's Strength, and Temur Battle Rage. If you want to add more creatures with high attack and you're scared of being blocked - Stratus Walk or Aqueous Form will work fine i think. Satyr Firedancer is cool to have if you're adding more burn to your deck.

id say 2 Lava Axe for 2 Hammerhand (keep hammerhand on game day for your sideboard though) and then 1 Satyr Hoplite and 1 Sigiled Skink for 2Guttersnipe Its a good idea though to keep the cards you trade out on a sideboard in case you do end up liking your original plan better, these are just my suggestions

Dragon Mantle maybe have in the sideboard if you find that you need a lower cost enchantment. and add Lava Axe!!!!!! since you have so many electromancers, it ends up consting only 4 mana to play (or maybe even 3 if you have 2 electromancers on the field) i'd say put 2 Lava Axe in your deck and 2 in the sideboard.

I would strongly consider adding the following cards: Sacred Foundry, Lava Spike, Rift Bolt, Skullcrack, Boros Charm. As well, upping the count of Lightning Helix, Magma Jet would be beneficial.

I would strongly consider removing the following: Volcanic Geyser (Just not fast enough for a burn deck and it is not mana efficient), Lava Axe (If they are still alive by your 5th land drop your probably dead also lava axe is just way to slow and inefficient), Wrath of God, (The cmc is too high and does not fit the burn profile, also it requires 2 white mana symbols and you are running only 6 lands that produce white mana which makes this card difficult to cast), Bolt of Keranos, (for 3 mana and only sorcery speed you have many better options, also it is too slow for a fast burn), Pacifism, (If you are playing against a deck that doesnt run creatures this card is a dead draw you might as well just put in another burn spell or even Path to Exile).

Hope that helps!

It doesn't look like there's any reason for you to be running blue. Humble Defector + Collateral Damage looks hilarious and fun, but there's a couple cards you have that I don't think are that great. Lightning Shrieker is basically just a Lava Axe, and you can get better hasty dragons in this Standard, namely more Stormbreath Dragons. Rattleclaw Mystic or Sylvan Caryatid are probably better than Whisperer of the Wilds in most cases? Not totally sure about that. Bathe in Dragonfire isn't all that great either, it's probably better as Stoke the Flames. Overall, you might want to try cutting down on the 1-of and 2-of cards and making most cards in your deck 3- and 4-ofs to make it more consistent.
