Dreamweav3r on Making Grixis Pyromancer

As someone who plays Mardu Pyro quite I bit I can say my gut feeling towards Briefing is its probably not good enough. You have to ask yourself what you're getting out of it, getting more spells in the yard is neat, but it also really isn't worth adding another color for. Also it isn't abnormal to be sitting on 2-3 lands most of the game, so double blue plus the cost of the spell is actually really prohibitive. I do think if you were going to go Grixis Snapcaster Mage is just better. Its much easier on mana, and it helps with applying pressure which decks like this sometimes lack. (Especially if you're removing Lingering Souls)

I like the deck and I agree with many here that Lingering Souls is a great addition and in my opinion the flying and flashback have more use then the fateful hour in most games. An addition that might be useful is Dawn of Hope as it rewards you for lifegain with cards and provides a mana dump in the form of 1/1 lifelink soldiers, at the least its a good multiplayer sideboard. A good finisher is Debt to the Deathless but I would only run that in multiplayer.

Thank you! That does seem interesting and I have been testing your idea I may move over to it at some point when my meta doesn't have so many Lingering Souls.

if you decide to add black, it should be for Lingering Souls, Bitterblossom, Assassin's Trophy, and Abrupt Decay. there arent any black planeswalkers that i myself would add. in fact the only planeswalker i'd use at all is Huatli, Radiant Champion.

Cool deck! I notice that you could easy make this deck Modern legal rather than legacy as legacy is a lot higher power than modern. You would just need to replace Hallowed Spiritkeeper with something else.

I would also splash Black in your mana base so you can use the flashback on Lingering Souls. Maybe a couple of Drowned Catacomb or Isolated Chapel to make it so you can use the flashback. Alternatively, you could replace them with Midnight Haunting as it is instant speed and that way you could leave up a counter in your hand and if you don't need to counter anything just make some spirits.

Speaking of counters, I replace Psychic Barrier with Essence Scatter as it is easier to cast.

I really do think that History of Benalia should see modern play. That card is quite silly and in theory I could see it replacing (or at least being split with) Bitterblossom.

Monastery Mentor is also one of my favorite cards ever, so of course I'll recommend my guy. The problem with both is those are that they are 3-drops. Playing 3 of each plus 3-4 Spectral Procession is a super dense 3 spot.

A lot of the other white token cards just aren't very good... Raise the Alarm feels terribad most of the time. Gather the Townsfolk is just a worse RtA. If in tokens you get full value off of Timely Reinforcements you're doing it wrong.

Lingering Souls really makes the entire token archetype. Without Lingering Souls, you lack on the value aspect and then the next best path to go is Young Pyromancer. I think it's doable to do , but splashing is I think necessary. Even if it's just for Lingering Souls.

elspeth might be too much mana, but gw tokens can be done. theres certainly enough token support in those colors, and ways to go both wide and tall at the same time. personally though i'd at least splash black for Lingering Souls and Bitterblossom, as well as access to Assassin's Trophy.

lagotripha on U/R delver splashing W/G/B for siege rhino

Run a value plan with Mission Briefing/Eternal Witness/Snapcaster Mage/Collected Company? Or a blink plan? Heck, Nissa, Steward of Elements?

I can see rhino in a tempo plan being playable. The big question is then support cards. Spell Queller and Lingering Souls, possibly some Young Pyromancer or something.

I'd even give a little thought to a domain pseudo-zoo list- Tribal Flames, fetches, Wild Nacatl and lifegain/card draw in the 3 and 4 slots.

The only unifying thing I can see being an auto-include is Manamorphose to ease flips. Could even use something like Glittering Wish as a 'perfect answer in 4 mana' in place of cryptic.
