Shock Discussion

Re mrmango & Techmage45

Well, I discussed Shock vs Galvanic Bombardment with a group of people at my LGS and they convinced me that Shock is just better. The ability to hit planeswalkers is actually really important.

I really like Fall of the Titans because if I surge it out off something like a Shock I can get one damage for every mana I tap straight to their face which can be game ending in a pinger deck, wheras Battle at the Bridge is better for catching up to an aggro deck. I am considering cutting the chandras, mostly because its not great to drop it on turn four without a solid defense though if I can untap with her up I feel like she'll do more than Yahenni's Expertise in terms of winning the game. I've been doing a lot of practice hands and with all the extra draws and scrys and low curve I'm not 100% sure i need many more lands. My curve is topping at Baral's Expertise (which is only in for the amazing Fevered Visions synergy and im considering cutting without that many relevant 4 drops besides chandra.)

1: I feel like another Dynavolt Tower would be strictly better than a Trophy Mage.

2: I get that you like Torrential Gearhulk but three is pushing it.

3: Boi Shock is mainboard or bust.

4: 0/10 no full art lands

Thanks man, you explained it better than the actual Hardhitta. Hahaha

Shock is good because unlike Galvanic Bombardment you can go to the face.

Edit: lol, like usual, i'm not needed

Flame Lash would be at the top of his (assumed ur gender) curve and doesn't do much. Shock seems to just be an 8th copy of Galvanic Bombardment and, honestly, there is no reason to not play it. Flamecaller is great, but, again, would be at the very top of his curve. Flamecaller works better in control decks that run red. Sorry for not being the actual hardhitta.

And the reason I'm running Shock and Galvanic Bombardment is because they are great to trigger prowess and similar abilities. Especially more than once a turn.

Maybe run a couple of Kari Zev's Expertise in sideboard to swing game if opponent drops a big threat. If you're looking to burn the opponent out, likely you're going to race, so I'd see no need for both Galvanic Bombardment AND Shock. If you put in the Expertise in sideboard for board threats, and swap the Bombardment for Flame Lash you may have a better shot at closing out the game on turn 4-5. If you still want some control with the burn, consider Hungry Flames instead of Lash. Also, fitting in a pair of Chandra, Flamecaller may assist you in sticking around to the mid/late games against control if you fizzle out. The card draw and the threats could buy you a little more time to get back into the game.

If you decide not to add big creatures, I would replace Shock with a counter and add a few bounce spells, also Fevered Visions is good in the long game.
