Spellheart Chimera Discussion

Vaan on Izzet Recursion (yes, it is)

Since your finishers depend on how many instant and sorceries you have on your graveyard i would run Cathartic Reunion and Contingency Plan as my card draw to help fill the graveyard. Epic Experiment is super fun and i would totally try to fit 1 or 2 on the deck.

If you don't expect to play against lots of Lightning Bolts consider Spellheart Chimera as another payoff creature.

Melek, Izzet Paragon can be really good if left unchecked, you should try it out.

Cool deck, reminds me of my own deck Power Blitz.

I would go with Enigma Drake instead of Spellheart Chimera. It won't die to bolt and if you play your cards right you won't even need trample to get your damage in, especially since it already has flying and is evasive. I noticed you're trying to do budget so I'm not gonna suggest any crazy cards. Try maybe Cathartic Reunion or Tormenting Voice to get cards you don't need in the graveyard. Possibly try Guttersnipe too. Assault Strobe is what makes my deck especially dangerous; if you have a bunch of cards in the graveyard you can easily double your win-con's power for one mana. Fevered Visions might do more harm than good in your case, especially if your opponent draws removal for your win-con. You might want to also consider Apostle's Blessing for protection. Sure you have to pay 2 life, but it'll be worth it once you swing. Check out my deck if you feel it might give you some ideas. Best part is that none of these cards are over $1, pretty sure.

Dope deck though, hope this helps out! +1

which direction you take it is up to you. but fetchlands and shocklands are expensive. i'm not a fan of prowess though. it requires using up too many resources just for a small temporary buff when you could be using creatures that start big to begin with, and stay big. like Enigma Drake or Spellheart Chimera

PlatinumWare thanks for your criticism! I followed your advice concerning the lands and replaced them. Did the same for the creatures (also exchanged Enigma Drake for Spellheart Chimera, not sure about that, its a trade of trample vs the ability to survive a lightning bolt). The thing is that now without Firesong and Sunspeaker I have only 5 wincon cards in the deck instead of 7, the two Ajanis and the chimeras. I also thought Dominus of Fealty could be a threat/alt win condition as well. I am going to playtest it a bit and see how it goes, I think that more changes might be in order :)

Naw dawg, Pauper EDH is special in that it's 99 commons, and any 1 uncommon creature as your general. This allows sick stuff like Bloodbraid Elf, Spellheart Chimera or Corpsejack Menace to be your commander, among others.

Neotrup on Storm mechanic with Spellheart Chimera

No. Spellheart Chimera says instant or sorcery card, and a copy is not a card. When a copy goes to the graveyard it also ceases to exist as a state based action, so not only does it jot count, b u t it won't be there very long.

Gnarbage on Storm mechanic with Spellheart Chimera

Hello, I am Gnarbage

I recently started playing magic the gathering and got myself a Mind vs Might duel deck to try out with a friend, but I got a question about the Storm mechanic that some of the cards have. When I cast 3 spells in one turn before I play a card that has Storm on it, means I get 3 copies of that spell, but do those copies count as individual spells that go to graveyard.

What I am trying to ask is do those copies of the Storm spell such as Empty the Warrens count in the power equalizaton of Spellheart Chimera ?

Sorry if it isn't clear enough my english is not very great
