Shock Discussion

Akromathia on The Unblockables

Since your deck relies mainly on creatures to win, it makes no sense to me to have just 10, specially considering that 7 of your non creature spells ( Curious Obsession , Swashbuckling ) need a creature to work.

I would remove (sideboard maybe) Waterknot and Shock (or at least change the balance between it and Skewer the Critics and Lightning Strike ) and add some creatures in those 4-6 spaces… Wee Dragonauts is a very good option for it covers a week spot in your deck (Air), and gets buffed every time you use Instants or Sorceries (according to your listing, you would be running 14 -15 of those even after adjusting the creature number), adding to the aggressive nature of your deck. You could get a 7/3 or 3/3, flier bashing for you without too much effort.

Also, Negate seems to be there to shield your creatures. If it is so, you could replace some copies of it with Dive Down , which do the same shielding than Negate but also allow some defensive maneuvers letting your creatures to last longer and to help you against other fast aggressive decks, for less mana.

Hope it helps… keep up the good job!

Kogarashi on Kopala, warden of waves interaction ...

Oracle of Bones ' ability to cast a spell without paying its mana cost is an alternative cost. Kopala, Warden of Waves ' ability is a cost increase.

When determining the total cost of a spell in order to cast it, rule 601.2e says (just the relevant portion):

The total cost is the mana cost or alternative cost (as determined in rule 601.2b), plus all additional costs and cost increases, and minus all cost reductions.

Your opponent would need to pay the additional for the Shock , even though they get the alternative cost of "without paying its mana cost."

Supersaulty on Kopala, warden of waves interaction ...

Kopala, Warden of Waves on the board, my opponent plays Oracle of Bones , tribute is not paid for Oracle of Bones , opponent has 1 untapped land and wants to cast Shock on a merfolk... I feel as though free or zero cast spell or not, if my merfolk is being targeted he has to pay the 2... Am i wrong? Please cite rulings.

Funkydiscogod on WE.. HATE.. BURNNNN

What's your opinion on Harm's Way ? It can possibly one-and-a-half-for-one the opponent by making them burn their own critters. Goblin Guide , Grim Lavamancer and Eidolon of the Great Revel all get btfo. Monastery Swiftspear is the only common creature that could survive it.

Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo has an effect that might be useful to the strategy: it can soak Lava Spike s and other player-only damage (unlike Spellskite ), and can't be countered by Skullcrack (unlike prevention and lifegain). And while on the subject of damage redirection, Empyrial Archangel would be nearly impossible for Burn to win through. And it can be pulled out with Angel's Herald if you can run Bant colors. This is might be too slow for modern, and might require too much of a rework.

One amusing possibility might be Hedron-Field Purists . With one counter on it, it turns all their Lightning Bolt into Shock . It also hates Grapeshot , Empty the Warrens and Walking Ballista , potentially making this more competitive against other decks.

I you add colors, Black Blue Red is the best you can do in standard, and you will want the full four Dragons Hoard. (In Grixis colors you have Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, and Niv-Mizzet, Parun )

Kargan is pretty bad, I would cut it for more early interaction like Lava Coil , Shock or Lightning Strike .

Hi I Would remove 2x Shock to -------> 2x Burst Lightning and maybe a Bedlam Reveler . Here is my Izzet list Through the Water and Flames

Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive does nothing in this deck because every other creature is already unblockable. I would definitely try to get some more removal like Shock or protection like Negate .

PlatinumOne on Modern: Red Burn /w Spell synergy

for the sake of making the deck list easier to read, use the same printing for all cards of the same name. for example, your Shock 's. it essentially shows up in the list twice, once as the m19 printing and the other as the Aether Revolt printing.

i would also highly recommend doing some research on the top modern decks. there are cards in this deck that are strictly worse than some other cards available in the format. again, Shock is an example. Lightning Bolt is the best burn spell in the format. Lightning Strike can upgrade to Incinerate , and the counterspells could be upgraded to Mana Leak and Remand . Ionize is also a good option. Adeliz, the Cinder Wind is only good in a deck whose creatures are solely wizards. otherwise you'd be better off running Wee Dragonauts .
