Lava Axe Discussion

Lava Axe is too much mana, plain and simple. also Avaricious Dragon can be a dead card just like lava axe and when it does go off, requires you to discard your hand, which for the +1 of drawing a single card, there are a lot better cards. Also, the way to play with Eidolon of the Great Revel is to play all of your spells first, then eidolon, or if you have a hand with instants, you can play them on your opponents turn after they kill Eidolon because they will have to deal with it soon.

Then, put in 12 of any of the one-drops I mentioned above, and 4 of the two-drops. The choice is yours of which to put in.

I went through the rest of the cards in the shoebox and made the following tweaks. With the few cards I have, it looks like I can lead toward elf tribal. I should probably post this as a new deck because it's very much different.

Out: Balduvian Barbarians, Centaur Rootcaster, Dire Wolves, Folk of the Pines, Horned Kavu, Hungry Mist, Ironroot Treefolk, Kavu Climber, Kei Takahashi, Krosan Tusker, Lightning Elemental, Marble Titan, Panther Warriors, Pincher Beetles, Rowan Treefolk, Ruham Djinn, Sawtooth Ogre, Soldevi Golem, Spined Wurm, Treespring Lorian, Viashino Grappler

The problem is that yes, I agree, you are supposed to treat them as non-creatures, but as non-creatures they largely did not pull their weight.
Heliod was fine. He was super slow, although you could get him to pay off big especially in JOU-BNG-THS where constellation was a mechanic. in THS-THS-THS I'd pick Wingsteed Rider over it every time though (well I would if money was not a concern).
Purphoros was a bit worse. I never found a deck where he'd really hum, on average you'd play him on turn 4 and he'd deal 4 to 6 damage to your opponent, but in the end he tended to be a really convoluted Lava Axe.
Mogis was actively bad. He also ended up being a very convoluted Lava Axe where they could choose not to take the damage when they couldn't afford to.
I think the best of the whole format for limited was Keranos because he'd often generate a card worth of value every turn (either by actually drawing you a card, or by killing something). Second best was probably Pharika, she kinda did what Heliod did and costed one less mana.

Not sure if you wanna keep it just . If you were to say splash some , you could throw in 4x Warden of Evos Isle to help with the mana cost of your dragons. Maybe run 4x Thunderbreak Regent, 4X Atarka's Command. For the direct damage I really like these, Fiery Impulse, Fiery Temper, Exquisite Firecraft, Lava Axe and Lightning Bolt. Just some ideas.

Being a Dimir player with a red loving brother, some of the cards I hated the most when playing against him and would fit into you deck are: Browbeat, also Hellspark Elemental because of the @#$%!& unheart, oh and also good ol'Lava Axe right into your opponent's face... starts crying*

Hi there, I'm also working on a U/R deck and I have to say i wish I had seen this before ordering some cards. I only now realized the benefits of bounce like Just the Wind paired with Fevered Visions. I will say that I think Avacyn's Judgment is superior to Burn from Within if you consider that you have 7 cards which discard, Lava Axe and Tormenting Voice, a 1 off of Avacyn's can give you a card which does more damage and can split said damage, and let you have equal madness to discard cards if I counted correctly. If you're going to run a 1 off of either, Avacyn's Judgment I think is a better choice for mainboard.
