Stormchaser Mage Discussion

Fun idea! I agree with Darth_Savage, but I have a few other ideas too: you could try Stormchaser Mage as an evasive threat that benefits from your gameplan. Temur Battle Rage would kick ass in this shell, and your tons of cantrips mean you can run just 1-2 and expect to see them reasonably often. And my last thought is more of a meme one since it's probably too slow, but you could try 1-2 Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest .

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

The reason for Thing in the Ice  Flip is that it's more difficult to remove (black removal will kill it) and is synergistic with the spells strategy. Young Pyro is synergistic, but easier to kill and isn't the same level of threat, particularly if the Royal Scions are on the field. In some ways if you don't have the Things then it might make sense to run two more Crackling Drake and maybe Stormchaser Mage / Flamewake Phoenix or two more Fiery Temper.

If you are just looking for something that feels like this, check out the 'tempo' archetype. The archetype in blue/red is traditionally called 'delver' (after Delver of Secrets  Flip ). Delver itself isn't pioneer legal, but since other staples of the deck are avalable, its worth tinkering. Cards like Bedlam Reveler for hand refills, Monastery Swiftspear doing swiftspear things, and lots of 1 mana instants/sorceries. Bounce spells are decent in this list, because you try to kill your opponent before card advantage matters. Since Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time are still unbanned, you should play some number of them. It may become a 'wizards' archetype to support Wizard's Lightning and Wizard's Retort , but there are questions over whether Stormchaser Mage and Soul-Scar Mage are worth it.

Have a look for any deck with a good mtgo showing or tournament finish in pioneer if you want to dig into specifics, and remember that you will need to plan around whatever other decks are doing in the format, including sideboard.

This week's new deck is $5 Wizard Prowess - an aggressive izzet deck built around cards like Stormchaser Mage and Wee Dragonauts .

That would probably help the deck out over all because it seems like it could be a low to the ground spells matter deck and Soul-Scar Mage and Stormchaser Mage seem like very solid additions.

Its more so that it'll be hard to even get to 6 lands dropped in a 20 land deck you need more like 22-25 lands to be running 6 drops in general unless you cheat them out. Distortion Strike isn't Pioneer legal but yeah Temur Battle Rage is a good idea. If you want to go full Prowess Stormchaser Mage and Soul-Scar Mage are worth looking at.

Made a few modifications today after testing it. I also couldn't find my Magma Jets, so once those are located Ral, Storm Conduit & Messenger's Speed will be replaced by Magma Jet . Mana base was decreased to 17 vs 21 and overall CMC is now under 2. Creatures changed slightly, as Lightning Stormkin was removed, and replaced by Stormchaser Mage . I also added Soul-Scar Mage as well.

May I suggest Stormchaser Mage over Lightning Stormkin , for additional spellcasting abuse?
