Makes sense Snapcaster Mage is expensive but they would be a great addition if you got them. I also don't think that Double Cleave is all that great. You might be able to maybe sneak a win in some games but I think running more counter spells would be more beneficial and would make the deck more consistent.

So if I wanted to play a “budget” version of this, would Force of Will , Snapcaster Mage , Grim Monolith and the expensive non basic lands be a good place to start or are they too important to replace? They don’t seem to be super integral besides the lands. What other things would you recommend cutting to cheapen it up a bit?

darklord1135 :

I would love to explain these cards and their function, in this specific 75. Also, thank you for your support and question.

In this 60, life-loss can become a minor issue with Bitterblossom . However, Pulse of Murasa in tandem with Collective Brutality mitigates that really well. Not only does it serve as life gain and the obvious Snapcaster Mage retrieval, but may also help to ensure land drops. On the other hand, it also serves a more important roll, returning a removed Creeping Tar Pit (Land) to enable the unblockable "One Punch" with Vraska, Golgari Queen 's emblem. In this shell, it serves as a smooth, instant 2 for 1. It also gives the deck more Snapcaster Mage 's to play with, in essence.

Hieroglyphic Illumination is a card I was incredibly skeptical about at first glance. However, with testing, this card has earned my respect. It does not have a Scry attached to it, but it may evade being countered due to Cycling not being a "Cast." This also helps against Chalice of the Void , at 1x, as Cycling once again cannot be countered. The ability of this card being a late game "Draw 2x Cards", seriously adds gas to the game. It does not NEED to be cast at 4 cmc, but the option to EOT - draw 2x - is very valuable.

Hopefully these answers give clarity to the options I deemed acceptable in this creative brew. Of course 2x Serum Visions would not be horrible though. Thank you for your question.

Hey, You could try playing Teferi, Hero of Dominaria so that you are playing 3 planeswalkers (for a gifts package). As well as instead of playing 2 snapcasters, you could play Mission Briefing . The mana may be a bit awkward but the Surveil ability is really nice in this deck! This also opens the gift package of Eternal Witness Snapcaster Mage and Mission Briefing .

Chasmolinker on Rug Burn

Hey TheGreatSlob. Thing in the Ice  Flip is a great card. I chose the name because the first thing that came to mind when I saw RUG (AKA Temur) was RUG-Burn. No real intention on burning out wins.

I've made some considerable changes since your suggestion, (based on your suggestion). Not much Green left in the deck. My initial objective was to make a Goyf / Snap / Pyromancer deck. This build is more concentrated than the original build IMO.
