Rex_JB24 on Drawing into the win with Baral

The 4 Maindeck Sweltering Suns and two Abrade will go a long was against Ram Red. However, a good player will try to bait it out so they get a free turn to resolve Hazoret. So in that matchup, try to play Suns only when it is absolutely necessary to keep you alive or when you also can leave up mana for Essence Scatter. Shock, Magma Spray, and/or Lightning Strike are also good card for you in that matchup.

In a midrange matchup I think you're covered by the permission and Hour of Devastation in your sideboard.

In the control matchup, an early Baral could be very good. Against Approach of the Second Sun decks, remember to save counterspells for the second one they cast. Maybe Spell Pierce over Censor in sideboard for counter wars.

Overall, your deck and card choices look fine.

Hahaha I didn't even think of the flavor that Cathartic Reunion brings with the scenario; Absolutely beautiful indeed! I'm having a hard time fitting it in though, replace Chart A Course?

Solid call on sideboarding Spell Pierce. I'm thinking Abrade and Hungry Flames are good exchanges, especially if he ends up running a creature light strategy.

Lands will be fixed, currently a place holding. Highland Lake will make it in definitely. I was on the fence with Harnessed Lightning and Aether Hub because of the budget aspect to the build and not playing Glimmer of Genius, but I convinced myself to pick up copies for another deck so I'll probably exchange them into this build.

Thank you kindly, it is very much appreciated!

Turtleshell Changeling (replace with 1 Calcite Snapper and 1 Horned Turtle) and Tortoise Formation (replace with 2 Spell Pierce) plus Meandering Towershell (replace with 2 Thriving Turtle) and for better blocking Freed from the Real (replace with 1 Essence Scatter) annnnnnnnd to keep your Azor's Elocutors on the battlefield Darksteel Plate (replace with 2 Island) Also my strat for this deck is: block get out your Azor's Elocutors put the Darksteel Plate on them then block with your turtles so you dont take damage (If you something like a Lava Axe use a counter spell) untell you can automatically win the game. FLAWLESS!!!

You should probably watch for the speed of creatures - if you end up with a pile of 3 cmc creatures, you won't be attacking until turn 4, and that is too late for a tempo deck (you'll be almost out of cards by then).

Your counterspells are too expensive, btw. Somewhere, between Remand, Mana Leak, and Izzet Charm, you should remove 4 and add 4 Spell Pierce. Disperse also seems a bit underpowered - you could pick Echoing Truth instead.

Spell Pierce is a better option than Censor isn't it? It's a very budget friendly card too.

Looks good. I think the gear hulk needs more than a 1 of in the deck.

I built a similar deck Sneek Attack Merfolk I like the idea of unblockable creatures turning sideways.

The biggest problem I have found so far is burn/removal and that why I am testing out Shapers' Sanctuary and Spell Pierce.

How do you run your sideboard? its the hardest part for me and I need some ideas.
