Magma Jet Discussion

lagotripha on Let it Burn

3 days ago

Not quite sure why people have been hating on Magma Jet as a two of- the scry is super useful in topdeck mode, which the deck should be reaching quickly. Beats browbeat if you need those slots any day. Creature base is a little on the heavy side for my taste, but if you're just playing casually I'd reccomend a deck with a solid gameplan package like the charm/helix/bolt/spear/eidolon and a lot more one-ofs. Games get pretty stagnant pretty quick if you're going to draw the same cards over and over, so bear that in mind. It matters less in a larger meta where every deck you'll face will be very different, but it is something to consider. If you're playing fnms, sideboard is probably the thing to work on the most.

Could I get your opinion HarrisonHarry ? What if I dropped -2 Satyr Firedancer for +2 Stormchaser Mage -3 Stoke the Flames for +3 Magma Jet then find room for 2 Thunderous Wrath . I feel like that would make this deck loads faster and also give it more random big win conditions. I feel like with Magma Jet and Anticipate in the deck, Thunderous Wrath would be no issue setting up.

KongMing on jund SACIFICE Deck

It's a little high CMC, but I would really recommend Mudbutton Torchrunner. It's basically a Lightning Bolt on legs; you can sac it to Fling or your other creatures to activate it and burn a creature or player for 3 damage.

Speaking of Lightning Bolt, Magma Jet is another option for versatility. It has a higher CMC and only does 2 damage, but the Scry can be helpful in a deck like this that has no way to draw or filter more cards.

Dregscape Zombie is another option; it's Unearth ability lets it get sacced, swing with Haste, and then get sacced again for 3 total mana.

Mogg War Marshal gets you a total of 3 Goblins for only two mana, another great source of sacrifices for your engine.

Scorched Rusalka is another option to consistently do damage when you sac off creatures, the big downside is the fact that the ability has red mana in its activation cost. The nice thing is that once you have enough creatures and mana on the board, you can burn an opponent from 5 life to 0 at instant speed. You basically raise their 'red zone' threshold.

This last one seems a little high CMC for your deck, but it could be a useful. Falkenrath Noble can give nick players, give you some sustain, and a little Flying defense if the deck doesn't go off fast enough.

I'm not sure how much use you get out of them, but you may want to consider replacing your Golgari Rot Farm and Gruul Turf with Rugged Highlands and more dual lands that give you 1 life. The bit of life gain is really helpful in an aggro deck like this, which has no sustain otherwise. Over 50% of your spells are only 1 CMC, so the Rot Farm and Turf may end up tapping for the wrong combination of mana or leave mana unspent at the end of phases.

Zhorus_The_Bauqret on Dragon Tempest

This deck seems all over the place. If you actually want to use this for something a little more than casual, I would organize it. Get rid of all of the useless things like Ornithopter, Searing Blood, Volcanic Hammer, Act of Treason, Demystify, Lightning Strike, Yoked Ox, and Magma Jet. Also Sneak Attack is an amazing card, and it would be even better if you ran 4 of's of certain things. Such as Utvara Hellkite, this keeps a 6/6 in play, even with you sacrificing Utvara Hellkite. Another great card is Fling with Sneak Attack, you sacrifice your creature you put out, before it has to be sacrificed to Sneak Attack, getting basically a double strike out. Cool deck though, I tried making a temur dragon deck when Dragonlord Atarka was standard, and it was a lot of fun to play.

xyr0s on Scrybaby

I agree with Darth_Savage, in that the main problem with your deck is that it does the same as the UR storm'ish decks, it just doesn't do it so well.

And yes, Guttersnipe is not good enough for modern. It relies on staying on the board, while you do something else. scrying is not a winning strategy for many reasons, but compared to the UR decks, the main reason is that it's not card advantage - only card selection. And although it's not really funny, modern is a format where speed is important. Lightning Bolt is just a better card than Magma Jet, because it costs one mana less and dos one more damage. magma jet might deal more damage, if Flamespeaker Adept is on the table. If flamespeaker gets to attack. And deal damage. but most likely, you won't get to do all this in modern.

Instead a turn 3 Young Pyromancer that gets to resolve, followed immediately by a lightning bolt, can't be interfered with. Even if your pyromancer is removed, it can only be done in response to your lightning bolt, and by then, your lightning bolt has triggered the pyromancers ability, and you at least get a token.
