thegigibeast, Actually, in terms of wincons for Past in Flames, I think the Dualcaster Mage combo has more going for it than Aetherflux Reservoir.

Sure AR costs 1 less than Dualcaster Mage + Twinflame, but AR has some problems in this deck. Mainly that conspired or copied spells don't count toward its total, and also that unlike Storm decks, we probably won't have cast more than 3 spells in for the turn before casting it. We don't want to have to load up on too many instants and sorceries to be sure to kill the table.

Dualcaster Mage + Twinflame on the other hand doesn't require any mana over 5, always kills the table if we have combat, and also only needs to Regrowth one card.

Also, thegigibeast, I would not discount Surrak, the Hunt Caller as a haste enabler for HD, as you can always remedy going off post-combat by flashbacking Seize the Day.

Lightning Mauler can be another haste enabler for HD if you need one more CMC in your Hulk pile, and since your current Hulk pile is 5 CMC I would definitely include Sylvan Safekeeper in the deck.

Start: , HD in play.

If you have additional creatures in play you can also sac HD to Infernal Plunge and save a step. You can also cast more rituals for extra mana to flashback Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Autumn's Veil, or Guttural Response, or to flashback Seize the Day if you're doing this post-combat.

TiranDirth on Dragonstorm: Its like Grapeshot, but with Dragons!

Thats fair, what else is worth getting in there?

I was hoping the storage lands would help me get a little more mana available, and the Lotus Blooms are there too along with Vessel of Volatility.

I wish we still had Rite of Flame and Seething Song but alas they were too good for this world.

@LeaPlath: But neither Rite of Flame nor Gitaxian Probe are legal in Modern

So the dragons you've got aren't great for a start. Any sort of removal in Legacy and you are shut down. Better off going 1 Kologan, and 4 Scourge of Valkas.

You are also missing all the good rituals and draw to let you dragonstorm efficiently. Rite of Flame for example, and free spells like Manamorphose and Gitaxian Probe.

Hey! Love the deck idea; having reliable defense while you just chill and burn out your opponent is a great way to make red and green work together in Pauper, which is something I'm currently struggling to do.

I ran a few playtests with it, and there are a couple of minor, fixable problems.

First, consider replacing Gruul Guildgate with Rugged Highlands, which is a direct upgrade with no downsides. This assumes you want to stick with taplands; personally I prefer something with more speed like Crumbling Vestige, but admittedly it is less reliable for mana fixing. Speaking of which, Abundant Growth is alright, but given that this is a two-color deck and one of the colors is green, there's a much stronger mana fixer/accelerant in the form of one of my all-time favorite cards, Utopia Sprawl. It raises the asking price of the deck considerably for a Pauper-legal card, but it's just so great since it makes the enchanted Forest produce 2 mana instead of one, and the second mana can be either color.

Next, the most common problem in playtests was one of two things: either the burn cards were there but without enough mana to get the job done quick, or the mana was plentiful but the burn cards were absent. At times even the problem was the mana production of Battle Hymn couldn't be used to play more defenders because there weren't yet enough defenders in play, which was very frustrating. Battle Hymn seems like it would favor a deck of more small creatures; other red accelerants like Rite of Flame might fare better. Either way, the aforementioned Utopia Sprawl helps, but an additional burn card would help as well.

Atroxreaper for sure, thanks to Rite of Flame I had Hazoret the Fervent out turn 3 swinging and game over turn 5

to me, i think the Izzet Guildmage is good here. i've actually copied your deck on here and have been making my own changes to it. right now i've found a way to storm off with him that is quite interesting. the Rite of Flame could possibly be replaced with one of the cards from above. each time i playtest the deck i never get that combo to go off, so most of the time it may be a dead draw. however, early game being able to cast 1 of them gets the Aetherflux Reservoir out a turn early.

it could be replaced with more card draw as well such as Opt as well.

as for the deck i've been working with, here is a link to it so you can check it out and playtest it:

Yes, Yes, yes... It's all falling together! cackles maniacally

I see what you mean, and its a lot to take in . . . But, I do agree, there are a lot of ways to go with this. Right now I'm working out the numbering and the exact strat, but one more question.

Do you think that the Izzet Guildmage + Rite of Flame is . . . not used to its fullest in this deck? Should I remove it for something more . . . Storm-y?
