Shock Discussion

buckets_dewitt on Umezawa's Funky Rat Penthouse (Black/Blue)

Good point, since I can simply switch the Negate into the sideboard and main board in Thought Erasure . I was searching around and I saw another card that could be good, in theory, called Shield of the Realm . I'm thinking it could be good as it essentially can protect Rat Colony from Shock or other etb effects so I can turtle a little easier if I have to until I pull my win condition, but that would be more of a sideboard choice in the long run and can be a bit of an investment.

Smothering Tithe would be good in here, especially against the annoying draw spam decks. Instead of Ill-Gotten Inheritance you could run straight up burn like Shock , Lightning Strike , Skewer the Critics , or - best of all - Banefire . Banefire can finish them off if you have 6 mana (you could cast it for X = 4, but you would have to be sure they don't have a counter).

Hope this could help, I don't really play Standard.

I still think you have too many suboptimal cards. Lightning Bolt is a strict upgrade over Shock , Soul's Fire / Reckless Abandon is worse than Fling and Seething Song / Mark of Mutiny does nothing. Arc Runner is also terrible because it can be easily blocked and it becomes 3 mana do nothing.

A good rule to abide by is to make sure your deck does one thing well, and only that one thing. Your deck right now is a bit all over the place, and there is a glaring flaw where you have no real way to refill your hand. Your sideboard is also weak to White Weenie, which is a popular deck right now so Electrickery is compulsory. I also don't see a situation where Perilous Myr can be boarded in. As a rule, sideboard is where you run hate cards, and tech against hate.

Try to look up the Izzet Blitz list. You definitely need more card draw just in case your first barrage doesn't kill.

Cut: Soul's Fire , Shock , Arc Runner , Perilous Myr , Mark of Mutiny , Seething Song , Reckless Abandon , Sure Strike , 2x Fireblast , 2x Ghitu Lavarunner and Thermo-Alchemist

Run: 4x Lightning Bolt , 3x Temur Battle Rage , 3x Nivix Cyclops , 3x Kiln Fiend , 3x Gush , 2x Ponder , 2x Fling , 2x Opt , 2x Gitaxian Probe , 2x Mutagenic Growth

Consider also running some dual lands such as Swiftwater Cliffs . Cycle lands are a good idea but Lonely Sandbar is better than Desert of the Mindful .

Sideboard: 4x Apostle's Blessing , 3x Counterspell , 2x Dispel , 3x Electrickery , 3x Tormod's Crypt ,

Theater of Horrors is excellent. It is a better Outpost Siege since it allows you to cast any card exiled with it in future turns. Outpost Siege saw genuine competitive play in its Standard format and I fully expect the Theater to see legitemate competitive play as well as a card advantage engine. It looks to be the real deal, especailly if a midrange strategy that incorporates Rakdos colors that plays stuff like Shock or Lightning Strike emerges, which is likely. If you are planning on picking up any of the cards from the new set in a preorder, that enchantment is a good one to pick up early. It is definitely a potential sleeper card.

The copy of Shock from Doublecast will NOT trigger Guttersnipe as you haven't "Cast" it but 8 damage for 3R is still good.

Meurth on R/B Pirates

Fiery Cannonade is a really strong card in pirates, I'd put a few in your main board as well. I don't really understand the 4x lightning strike, a few Lava Coil and/or Cast Down would be better I think. Also, maybe a few Shock in the sideboard?

What's your plan against Izzet drakes? I know you have some flying removal in Plummet and Vivien Ried, but like the deck lacks any sort of card draw early and getting hit with Shock, Lightning Bolt, and things of the sort seem really oppressive when you have a hard time redrawing those cards. I could be wrong, but a feel maybe throwing in a few non elf creatures that are bigger might help you stand a chance in that match up.
