Merciless Javelineer has a discard for 2 plus she also gives counters and has a solid 4/2 body

I think ill use Call the Bloodline, but ill probably pass on Merciless Javelineer. Also Sire Of Insanity is great but Malfegor works better for a sudden hand discard.

Thanks for the ideas though. It was a good point that I need more consistent discard in the deck.

Have you considered a more stable discard system like Call the Bloodline or Merciless Javelineer and if you wanted to look into Sire Of Insanity

barneystinson22 I only wanted one Creature in the 4 drop spot and prefer Ondu Champion, but you can easily substitute Merciless Javelineer.

You'd maybe want some card draw, because you will be churning through them.

Of course Zulaport Cutthroat is then not very useful, so you should take that out as well. Maybe put Painful Lesson in its place.

TheRedCzar if you go with Yahenni's Expertise you might think about Gravedigger instead of Minotaur Sureshot.

Between that and Supernatural Stamina you can save a couple of Minotaurs after you boardwipe.

looks good but what about a Merciless Javelineer?

@Moby_Copperfield, with the right cards you can always do both. And you could add in other stuff like Shefet Monitor to help with the splash if you go green or make it a splash non-white. One of my favorite things about magic so far is the endless possibilities you can do. I've gone against someone who splashed in three colors into their previously mono-red deck and it worked amazing. I recently helped a friend splash green into his Dimir rouge deck because I got Vraska the Unseen and gave it to him. Now I have an even harder time dealing with that deck...

Even though I hardly splash my decks, I greatly see the possibilities and endless combos available with both green and red. I would also suggest, even though some of these would fit a cycling deck better, Haze of Pollen, Shefet Monitor, and Gift of Paradise for green; and Bloodrage Brawler, Deem Worthy, Hazoret the Fervent, Tormenting Voice, and Merciless Javelineer for red. All of those are really good cards without even looking outside of Ahmonkhet. If you really cant decide, you can always do both by splashing into your main deck and having your side deck have splashed of the other color along with those already in your side deck. I might actually do that now myself.

@mack10k yeah I thought long and hard about Tormenting Voice it works wonders with temper and allows me to refuel my hand. I am going to definitely have to try different configurations of burn/draw to get it just right for sure.

@matchgrizzle I hadn't considered Merciless Javelineer and now that I'm looking at it more it could very well provide some stability between explosive turns for sure.

Stun Sniper would work if you don't care about the set. Oh, and Merciless Javelineer works well too, especially if you have Fiery Temper to discard to it.
