Some number of Baral, Chief of Compliance or Goblin Electromancer seem like they could be good adds since they make your counter spells.... Counterspell . Then you could even run Lightning Strike as removal and it'd be just like good ol' Bolt. Fumarole has never been kind to me and tapped lands hurt sometimes so maybe cut 1 for the last sulfur falls. Other than that it looks really fun! Let me know if those work in practice like they do in theory lol. Good luck!

since you only have 1 wizard in the deck, i think Lightning Strike would be an upgrade over Wizard's Lightning . and since you're unlikely to trigger ferocious on Wild Slash , i'd take it out entirely and mainboard the Skullcrack .

I don't really like red in this deck. The cards you're using that require red are easily replaceable, and it's making it hard to reach the mana requirements of cards like Absorb (and Niv-Mizzet, Parun will almost never come out with his mana requirements either).

Censor could be replaced by Quench (unless you really like the cycling part), if you're keeping red then Fiery Impulse swaps for Shock or Lightning Strike . I agree that Teferi, Time Raveler is a must in any control (although I'm not sure how it turns off Aetherworks Marvel , it just bounces). Let's see... More counter-spells are needed, so I'd recommend Disallow , as it's easily the best of the lot if you can meet the mana requirements (hey, you know what'd help with that? Taking out red!)

With Skewer the Critics you might want to run Wild Slash over Lightning Strike . Half the cost for 2/3 of the damage.

Sweet deck man, this one's a throwback for sure. Personally I'm not a fan of the 2x Blood in the main. I understand why you have it, but since you already have 4 Lightning Strike already I don't really see a need for it. Also, I don't really like being unable to cast the Flesh side of the card. Maybe replace it with 2 Savage Knuckleblade ? That card's freaking gas, yo.

Hi StriderHaryu, gotta say I really like the concept of Torbran, Thane of Red Fell catalyzing a burn deck. I was brewing a similar list more based off of Amonkhet standard based off Ramunap Red. Here are my immediate suggestions (note I have done no playtesting yet, I'm still picking up the cards for my list):

-3 Abrade +1 Lightning Strike +2 Stoke the Flames

Unless artifacts are a huge part of the Pioneer meta Abrade is probably better off in the sideboard, I think rounding out your Strikes and adding Stoke is better, since I remember Stoke being pretty good in M15 standard and your list is pretty creature-heavy.

-4 Shock +1 Wild Slash +3 Searing Blood

Wild Slash is strictly better Shock, no reason not to use it first. Blood is the equivalent of Searing Blaze in this new format as I see it; seems pretty strong.

You can probably stand to run Scavenger Grounds over Grafdigger's Cage in the sideboard given it synergises with Ramunap Ruins more.

Other card suggestions I have, over no particular cards in your list would be Abbot of Keral Keep , Eidolon of the Great Revel , Skewer the Critics , and Light Up the Stage .

Feel free to check out my brew here and return suggestions!
