Thermo-Alchemist Discussion

Boza on U.B.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Pings

It is a really funky idea that I think is pretty awesome. the only problem with it is that it is 3 colors and I see no way to cut one:

Blue offers the best ways to tap/untap.
Red offers the most damage on tap/untap and gives access to Quicksilver Dagger, the best card in the deck. Black has the drain effects and cheapest "tap for value" creature.

So, rather than cut a color, it would be best to optimize.

-4 refocus + 4 Cerulean Wisps to save a mana.

-4 hypnotist (by far the worst of the creatures) + 4 Thermo-Alchemist

-2 shared discovery (a long shot to have 4 dudes) + 2 Zephyr Scribe - this one is skeptical as requires mana to tap, but the ability is good.

Cut Bloodfire Expert add Monastery Swiftspear

Cut Mage-Ring Bully add Abbot of Keral Keep

I would suggest finding a way to add Soul-Scar Mage as well.

You need more card draw to keep the fuel going for Thermo-Alchemist and any prowess creature you have in there, Light Up the Stage is a good card.

Tzilakatzin on Niv Mizzet Parun Burn them All

I honestly don't think you should use those XCMC burnspels because Niv daddy already makes shitloads of damage, i haven't try the orientation that you are picking but i found quite easy to get the wheel going with tons of Pyretic Ritual s alongside with the Goblin Electromancer s effect so, for that, i replaced the U CMC spells such as Opt with the rituals, because i draw a card and generate mana at the same time on one side and are quite redundant with Niv's ability and you don't get the electromancer's 1 mana discount on the other side. What i already said can be discussed but what cannot be is the absence of the following cards:

Basilisk Collar & Gorgon Flail : equipped with Niv dady or Goblin Sharpshooter you can kill almost any creature on the field Grafted Exoskeleton : you can equip this to a Guttersnipe type of card (including Niv daddy) and you can almost kill al the opponents in one turn (with powerfull cards such as High Tide Firebrand Archer & Thermo-Alchemist : with those you can draw A LOT OF CARDS alongside with Curiosity and allows you to not only save it for the time you wanna combo out with Niv daddy.

Also you will want to get all of those 2 CMC mana artifacts that give U/R as possible because this deck is so mana-color-intensive (begining with Niv).

I have other suggestions but i dont quite have the time nor i remember the name of the cards. Awesome deck and i take note of some of your interesting picks such as Torbran, Thane of Red Fell among others.

Fire Urchin / Thunderkin Awakener and Firebrand Archer or Thermo-Alchemist make nice additions alongside spitfire. Nivix Cyclops saw play in Temur Battle Rage combo lists.

Soul-Scar Mage & Immolation Shaman might have sideboard spots. Satyr Firedancer has always looked far better than it is-don't bother.

Foundry Street Denizen , Goblin Piledriver , Goblin Instigator , Hordeling Outburst and similar goblin spam does a lot.

Burning Prophet is interesting card filtering, as is Magma Jet . Kari Zev, Skyship Raider is efficient, and Tilonalli's Summoner is cute af.

Dreadhorde Arcanist / Young Pyromancer ; strong and meta, but end up defining any deck they are in. Break Through the Line is an interesting enabler, but cards that aren't dealing damage are a little weak here.

Guttersnipe / field can be backed by Thermo-Alchemist and Cryptolith Rite / Song of Freyalise for a red/green combo list if thats more your jam.

RNR_Gaming on Torbran the exterminator

Very similar to my deck. However, I utilize pingers like Thermo-Alchemist . With Neheb, the Eternal and your commander out a few pingers will generate a good bit of mana and you'll be able to lay down some stax.

I've been working on this dude too. I've found that pingers and damage doubles are the way to go. Furnace of Rath with Dictate of the Twin Gods (which you already have in the deck) ups the damage of things like Thermo-Alchemist up an absurd amount; if you have your commander out with the enchantments you're doing 12 damage to everyone per tap.
