Molten Rain Discussion

Oh and 1 more sideboard card you may want to check out is Molten Rain or Crumble to Dust specifically for tron, but it does take out Inkmoth Nexus and Gavony Township as well. Crumble to Dust is a little hard to cast sometimes with burn decks generally only have 2 or 3 mana most games.

@ Kragmork Glad you appreciated my advice and suggestions! However, I do have a few more tiny suggestions to make. After the addition of Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker, the deck seems to be a little bit slower and has a tougher time establishing a board presence on turns 1 and 2. To solve this, I would suggest lowering you curve a little and adding a few different cards. These are mainly budget options, although they might increase you deck's overall cost to around 60$. Anyways, the first suggestion I am going to make is to cut Purphoros, God of the Forge and replace him with Koth of the Hammer. While Purphoros is definitely a great card, once you get him out and reach enough devotion to turn him into a creature, I feel like you have usually won the game and you would much rather be playing another Flamewake Phoenix and Lightning Bolt or a Fanatic of Mogis to deal the last few points of damage. If you still want to have the option of playing Purphoros, you could always move 1-2 copies of him to your sideboard! Koth of the Hammer on the other hand is a staple of mono-red midrange decks and immediately threatens your opponent with a 4/4 elemental as soon as he comes down. His -2 can be a devastating ramp effect late game and his ultimate is amazing for ending stalled games! The next suggestion I would make is to cut 2 Molten Rains and both of your Fanatic of Mogis in exchange for 2 Kiln Fiends and 2 Rift Bolts. Kiln Fiend is a great creature that can trigger ferocious after one instant or sorcery, and Rift Bolt is a great spell that is second only to the original Lightning Bolt (imo). Two more cards that warrant some consideration are Browbeat and Firedrinker Satyr. I don't know what you would cut, but they both seem like they may be good in this deck. You seem to have very little 1-drops, so Firedrinker Satyr would fix this problem and provide you with an efficient 2/1 beater that is ready to attack on turn 2! Browbeat on the other hand is a great form of red card draw that forces your opponent to choose between a rock and a hard place. While the downside is that it does give your opponents a choice, both options are almost always good and it might be worthwhile to see how it compares to Tormenting Voice! Your sideboard is also looking pretty good as well! The only thing I would suggest is cutting 2 Peak Eruptions and a single Dragon's Claw for 1 Stigma Lasher and 2 Flames of the Blood Hands against life game matchups. Other options include more Molten Rains or Sowing Salt for tron, Tormod's Crypt/Relic of Progenitus for reanimator/dredge and Exquisite Firecraft or Vexing Shusher for counter-heavy control matches! Good luck!

@ Kragmork This deck looks super dope! I love mono red decks like these and after playtesting yours for a while, it seemed really fun and powerful! However, I do have a few (budget) suggestions to make. First of all, I would add a sideboard. This is really important to have in modern and it doesn't take long to make. I'm not gonna elaborate further, but if you don't know what I mean, just Google "mono red sideboard modern" and a lot of detailed information will show up! In regards to your mainboard, I think you should should probably cut at least a Stone Rain and a Goblin Dark-Dwellers. Stone Rain is just outclassed by Molten Rain and I feel like Goblin Dark-Dwellers are just too expensive to justify running a full playset. In their place, I would add a fourth Dragon Whisperer (such a great card) and another Mountain to help improve the consistency of your deck! I would also consider running 1-2 Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker in your mainboard as another finisher and ferocious enabler, although I don't know what you would cut for him. While expensive, a playset of Lava Spike would be something to consider as it provides you with more burn and a way to kill those opponents who have just stabilized at low life. Anyways, this is a solid deck and you are off to a great start in modern! Good luck!

I've recently started tinkering on a Gisela list and came across your list. You came to the same conclusions as me regarding Pyrohemia and Manabarbs and you're absolutely right I think these are among the best cards. I'd also run Burning Earth though. A couple of cards you run I'm not really sure about. Crawlspace is a card I never really liked. I prefer Ghostly Prison over it. Haunted Cloak is an interesting choice and vigilance is a pretty underrated ability in multiplayer, but before I'd add Swiftfoot Boots for redundancy next to the greaves. Now for the Isochron Scepter thing. I get it, the card is great but it's much less so without blue because with blue you can imprint counterspells which means it can protect itself. But if it gets removed you just got 2for1-ed. Also by playing a card like Disenchant as opposed to a much more powerful card in Return to Dust, you limit your deck construction severely just for the possibility of imprinting something into the scepter. I'd remove the scepter and play more powerful removal like Volcanic Offering (and cut Molten Rain on the process). I've never tried Assembled Alphas but it doesn't seem bad at all. I might consider it myself. Malignus is a good card but I think it's better if you play Fling or if Brion Stoutarm is your commander. The problem it has is a lack of evasion. There are too many Wood Elves an Solemn Simulacrum-type cards in the format for a creature like this to ever get through. Browbeat is also interesting. Without a damage doubler out I think it's not good enough but with one out it might be worthwhile. But I'm generally very sceptical about one-time value cards. I'd rather get my value from a permanent, such as Emeria Shepherd, especially because you also run Urza's Incubator. These are the most important things I needed to say.
You can check out the Gisela list I'm working on, maybe you find something else that inspires you: Pressure Fort

If aggro is a huge problem, I'd say you best options are Pyroclasm, Anger of the Gods, Slagstorm, Kozilek's Return, and if you really want to be sneaky, you can play Firespout (because it won't kill your fliers) and it acts like a Slagstorm on an opponent's board! Since you'd likely be more of the control deck game 2 playing a lot fo these would probably give you enough time to cast a finisher and win.
You might want to play the card known as Izzet Staticaster, as it can deal with tokens and lots of small creatures.
I've seen many lists run Echoing Truth as a sort of "catch-all" spell, so that they can deal with things like artifacts or enchantments, as well as certain combos/cards. Ratchet Bomb is also good at doing this.
If you need anymore help, feel free to let me know!

I would concur with the others about your sideboard. Soulfire Grand Master really isn't what you want against aggro or in the mirror. Kor Firewalkers backed up by Path to Exile to deal with your opponents' Kor Firewalkers is where you want to go. You also want Path to Exile so you don't just scoop to a Wurmcoil Engine on turn 3 from a Tron player.
I'd probably change your sideboard to look something like:
If you are wanting to build up a Tribal Flames list, you play black for Bump in the Night and blue for Geist of Saint Traft. I play Tribal Zoo myself with Siege Rhino, Noble Hierarch, Tarmogoyf, and Wild Nacatl. I'll post my deck here if you want or you can find it in my profile.
