mccabej140 on Izzet Faeries vs Dimir Faeries

6 days ago

I'm wanting to get into pauper and I've narrowed down the deck I want to build down to izzet faeries or dimir faeries.

Izzet faeries seem to have better removal with Lightning Bolt and Skred.

Dimir on the other hand gives access to Gurmag Angler which is a nice finisher and Thorn of the Black Rose seems helpful against tron.

Well anyway what are your guys thoughts on the two decks?

mikeb388 this deck is for pioneer. Lightning Bolt and Rift Bolt don't exist in that format. There are enough creatures in the deck.

When it comes to EDH removal, you're looking at Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile for the absolute best. A 3/3 doesn't often matter much. Lightning Bolt, Fatal Push are both reasonable in faster metas i.e. cEDH as a lot of the things you care about are cheaper anyways, but for black you're going to be using Doom Blade effects for the most part. Those are fine, you just don't want as many.

Capsize is actually my #1 favorite blue card of all time. It's like the blue Lightning Bolt. I will find any excuse to put it in a deck.

The reason I said I would go down 1 Spell Snare is because, just in my personal opinion, I think it is best when used as a one of when you run 4 copies of Snapcaster Mage. You also have another copy in the sideboard so running 2 in the main is just a lot overall and could get you into trouble in certain matchups that coincidentally don't have many 2 CMC cards worth countering.

I think I would also consider running Aether Gust or more copies of Ceremonious Rejection in the in the sideboard in place of Mystical Dispute and Essence Scatter. I believe Essence Scatter in particular can be replaced with really anything because it doesn't seem super relevant to counter creature spells when you have 4 Lightning Bolt, 1 Abrade, 1 Izzet Charm, 1 Magmatic Sinkhole, and 1 Flame Slash for removal and you can easily flash those back too with Snapcaster Mage. Essence Scatter just seems super redundant.

RNR_Gaming on Tyrant's Bounty

Moderns a very fast format. You're going to want some interaction like Lightning Bolt or Abrade. Additionally, maybe Through the Breach could help you get your pay off on the board and leaving you with a couple 6/6 beaters if all goes well. Maybe consider adding in some black for Changeling Outcast and Fatal Push
