Sprite Dragon Discussion

Here is a deck that Safron Olive made. Izzet Prowess Aggro I think its a lot of what your going for and budget friendly. Sprite Dragon is an absolute must in that style deck. Not the same deck idea but similar and could give you some good ideas!

Sprite Dragon is better then Stormchaser Mage. A play set of Manamorphose seems good. Maybe play 1 or 2 Stormwing Entity?

Thanks for that feedback, Amoskeag -

Monastery Siege would be a great inclusion, I agree. And yeah, I can see that replacing Avaricious Dragon. The inclusion of Stormchaser Mage could be good, but really, that's what I'm using Sprite Dragon for and I really like him in my extensive playtesting due to him remaining big and not just relying on prowess. You'll see that I have cheap spells for draw-2, but I don't employ a lot of 1-mana spells that I can stack that would really put Stormchaser to work.

I'm going to find room for maybe two copies of the Siege. Thank you, very helpful.

SilentPlague on Black & Red Aggro

I see the control, but don't see much of the aggro. I don't necessarily see this being a win by turns 6-8. That is generally where I draw the line for aggro, but don't mistake me as the authority on that. Your deck average CMC is good for this, 3 or under in my opinion. Dreadhorde Butcher is a great early game play. I'd have 4 in this deck. Sprite Dragon is a good card, but not for this deck. You have at best, 6 chances for an island, given you are not short another color and that makes Sprite Dragon difficult to play early like you would want. Having either Nicol Bolas, the Arisen or Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip for the late game is doable, but if you take out those 2 and the 2 faerie dragons, I think you can find better fits. For my agro decks, I assume if I can't win early, I likely will not win at all. So I have no back up. This lets me focus on putting in more aggressive creatures for the early game. You have only one other demon.

Also note that Avatar of Woe and Bone Dragon really work against each other. Maybe focus on one of them. For instance, you have cards for exiling creatures (not good for the avatar). So maybe Bone Dragon is the choice here. You would likely want to not have cards that pull spells from your graveyard as well. Such as Unbreakable Bond if you want to keep getting the dragon back out. Also note that Rakdos, the Showstopper could really hurt you in this scenario even more than your opponent. Not sure that card fits here.

I would suggest looking into cards with menace. They are usually cheap and are very aggressive, given they are hard to block. Stormfist Crusader is a good one that can work with control as well. To keep the control aspect, put in cards such as Heartless Act and Terminate. This keep the opponent creature count low and the game in your hands. Act of Treason is a good one to keep in for control.

Sorry if I went too deep here. You can ignore me and it won't hurt my feelings. I'm just snooping around getting ideas of my own as well and waiting for criticism to come back to me from time to time.

lagotripha, so I tried to make two new versions of the deck using black and white instead of green but I wasn't able to make them work. Now I will try to use some of the cards you suggested here.

I'm going to try Sprite Dragon and Deeproot Champion, I just need to choose what cards to remove. I also wanted to use Relic of Progenitus, so I need a lot of space.

At the moment I'm using Logic Knot like you suggested and it works pretty well, even though it has some kind of conflict with Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath, but I think that giving this deck some more counters is necessary. Anyway, since Uro requires to exile 5 cards, it steal resources to all the cards using gy. I removed Skaab Ruinator before him for the same reason.

I reccomend testing this as a Sprite Dragon RUG tempo/midrange shell. It can be pitched to the forces and it likes you sitting and protecting it with counterspells. Logic Knot, Negate, Mana Leak etc has a lot of tools to both fuel the yard and stall for the time to start generating squee/griffin value.

Alongside a well planned sideboard you could translate the current standard 'sprite dragon boggles' into modern pretty well, with stuff like Deeproot Champion providing potential extra copies. With the sideboard packing a bunch of tools like Electrolyze and Lightning Bolt you could probably make it to being FNM competitive even if you aren't going to win competitions.

Check out some of the temur tempo lists- a lot of them were just excuses to run 'goyf, but there are some neat tricks in there.

If you want to go even more gimmicky, you could try to get Commandeer running, but in my experience it is really far too much card disadvantage even with blowout 'you mean my lightning bolt/cryptic/wilderness rec' moments.

I highly reccomend Judge's Familiar and Mausoleum Wanderer for lists like these. Protection on a flying body is real good. The new Skycat Sovereign lets you play another 4 pride of the clouds. Stormchaser Mage and Sprite Dragon will help if you lean into the instants/sorceries route, while Jubilant Skybonder offers protection.
