Spellheart Chimera Discussion

You make me blush Snap157. I like to think I have been touched by the Firemind. (Not inappropriately)

Wow, that's a lot of cards. I don't want to go into detail because first you need to decide exactly which route you want to go. If you want to go straight counter/burn you are gonna want to cut down the creatures to about 12-16 to make room for counterspells, burn, and draw. Delver of Secrets  Flip and Monastery Swiftspear are great one drops in those decks. 2 drops can be Stormchaser Mage for a little quicker deck or something like Thermo-Alchemist. Enigma Drake or Spellheart Chimera are great payoff cards. A couple Bedlam Reveler or Cryptic Serpent are nice to have as well.

If you want to go the Fevered Visions route the creature base is a little smaller and most of the counters are replaced by bounce spells like Unsubstantiate and Unsummon to keep your opponents hand full.

Once you decide exactly what you want it to do I can help more. Also keep in mind that I do not play Modern or competitively. I just play casual but you can look at my decks to get some ideas if you want.

This deck seems like what you are looking for, Izzmatic. It can be made Modern legal by replacing a few cards. My Fevered Visions deck is more for fun and casual play but you can check it out if you like, Visions - Young Peezy ft. Alchemist.

It is also helpful to know whether you intend to play competitive Modern events or just play with friends. Or perhaps just want a cool deck to take to FNM.

Draw well, and Glory to the Firemind!

Speaking of Drakes... I'm super pumped about Enigma Drake! I've already preordered some. A Spellheart Chimera that survives Lightning Bolt!

I'm waiting on the Enigma Drake soooooooort offfff; I want to see his pricing before I include him but I can't imagine he'd be super expensive. I also really enjoy the trample on Spellheart Chimera, so we'll see :P

Gotta say that I love the Curiosity + Thermo-Alchemist .Not a big fan of the Stormchaser Mage but that's just because I find him boring. He's a great card.

A few random suggestions that you might, might not have seen: Delver of Secrets  Flip, Serum Visions and Spellheart Chimera. Also, Disciple of the Ring. I know that it's more creature heavy than what you are likely aiming for, but they are all quite fun.

Hey, if you are updating for Amonkhet, you should definitely consider Enigma Drake. Its pretty much a better Spellheart Chimera since its bolt proof. Too bad its not a dragon. I'd recommend reducing your curve for him by replacing Keranos and/or reducing your anger of the gods count so that you avoid killing your delver more often. (Keranos is still really good against control but too slow against aggro, maybe sideboard slot 15?). Btw, I know that this is probably way out of your budget, but as a stretch goal Blood Moon would also be a great card for your deck, making it way better against Jund, Bant Eldrazi, Tron, etc.

Has anyone ever made a self mill deck based on instant/sorceries to ramp up up creatures and other spells? Something like Enigma Drake from today's spoils, Spellheart Chimera, Runechanter's Pike, Rise from the Tides, Bedlam Reveler, Disciple of the Ring?

Anyone think this is something worth making?

Oooooh I love Enigma Drake. The Izzet Mage is pleased. I really like that he has 4 toughness compared to Spellheart Chimera's 3. Sure you're losing trample but you can block much more stuff now. Plus it's a Drake, way cooler than a Chimera imo.

Looks like Purple Drank is up for a revamp.

Welcome back, Spellheart Chimera (minus the trample and with extra toughness)
