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.

Stormchaser Mage would be a nice addition to this list

Dictate of Kruphix might be a better play than Avaricious Dragon, Rielle, the Everwise is cool but if you lose that your turns are going to be short-handed, more consistent card advantage.

If you end up making is more cycle based, or maybe you really like the discard, Drake Haven could slot in nicely someone in the 75. In the same vein of Draw and Discard Monastery Siege is very versatile and can protect your board from the opponent!

Medomai's Prophecy, helps you gain card advantage for cheap.

If you're going to draw a lot, Psychic Corrosion in the sideboard is a good backup plan if necessary.

Cheers!

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.

How about Sprite Dragon? It seems better than Ghitu Lavarunner or Stormchaser Mage since it gets permanent 1/1 counters and still gets haster.

Also, Manamorphose is cheaper now because it was reprinted in mystery boosters. You can even open a few mystery booster packs and get it relatively easily since manamorphose is a common.

It seems that your mana base is a little underwhelming, probably due to budget reasons. Making your mana more consistant should be your number one goal. Since fetch lands are really expensive, you can use a few Sulfur Falls, Spirebluff Canal, Fiery Islet, Steam Vents. Even if you can't get a playset of them, try to get as much as possible. A really budget dual land would be Temple of Epiphany but I wouldn't reccomend it because you are an aggro deck and dont want to be missing out on mana. However, if you cant get any untap duel lands, it is good to have a few copies of them in your deck. (note that tapped out sometimes show cards as more expensive than it normally is. also some copies of a card are cheaper)

Since this is modern, expect a few graveyard decks, so you might want to add in some graveyard interaction/hate. I would reccomend Tormod's Crypt because it is cheap in real life, costs only 0 mana and triggers prowess/sprite dragon's ability. Put 3 of them in your sideboard instead of temur battle rage and smelt. Also, you might want some creature removal in the sideboard like Dismember. Dismember is essentially one mana and can deal with pretty much any creature.

Otherwise, really cool deck! I'm surprised how good it looks with such a small budget. This could easiley be very competitive if you upgrade your mana base and change a few cards in your mainboard. However, the sideboard does need some work and there should be more replacements other than what i said.

Why Sprite Dragon out of all the options you have to pressure an opponent in this kind of deck. Have you considered Lightning Stormkin and/or Stormchaser Mage with Wizard's Retort and Wizard's Lightning, Brineborn Cutthroat, Grim Lavamancer, Spectral Sailor, Sea-Dasher Octopus, or Pteramander? Does the deck need Anger of the Gods or does the burn take care of creatures well enough?

I'm curious how well Light Up the Stage fits. It's an instant speed deck for the most part with some burn and creatures to activate it, but hitting Remand and Ral, Storm Conduit for example would be useless. Thunderous Wrath seems amazing when it hits but is that good enough to balance out the times it just sits in your hand? I'd prefer something like Searing Blaze, which seems to be perfect for the deck. Chart a Course also seems nice, but it's sorcery speed which sucks. Have you thought of using Curious Obsession?

Maybe four Sprite Dragon. It seems better than Stormchaser Mage.

The newly-revealed sprite dragon from Ikoria is superior to Stormchaser Mage in the majority of situations, so I shall replace the mage with the dragon in this deck.
