Wee Dragonauts Discussion
2 months ago
That's hard to bear, for most. The thing I do to keep my decks cheap is avoid Shock Lands( Steam Vents and the like) and cards like Fabled Passage . I'm not denying their value, but are they really 10-20 times more valuable (in the game) than a card like Temple of Epiphany ? They both tap, and both give an add on.
Also, Sleeves exist, to protect cards. Cards can be bought cheaper when they are in a less-than-new condition. And foils are also a bit unnecessary, if your goal is to stay cheap.
Now for an actual idea. I was looking at the cards you liked at the top of this post. Pteramander and Crackling Drake are both big on instants, and getting Humongous as a result of them. Enigma Drake has already rotated, it is no longer standard legal. Two other red and blue cards that get Gargantuan as a result of instants/sorceries are Erratic Cyclops and Wee Dragonauts . Cards that help you cast such spells are Goblin Electromancer , and (sorta) Spellkeeper Weird . The instants/sorceries you want to cast with this can be damaging type, card advantage type, orcreature buff/debuff, or even the first two of these combined. (Counterspells are essential, too)
For Damage, Shock , Lava Coil and Electrodominance are good. Card-Drawing, Opt , Winged Words , and Chemister's Insight all draw and give card advantage. Infuriate , Sure Strike , and Sonic Assault both buff/debuff. Ral's Outburst both damages and gives card advantage. For a damaging deck, you may want Electrostatic Field . For a card-drawing deck, The Magic Mirror and Niv-Mizzet, Parun make a great combo. If you want to simply buff your creatures to victory, make sure to keep the pumping creatures.
Counterspells are essential, I find Quench is surprisingly useful. Ionize is great too, and everyone seems to love Mystical Dispute too, although it is pricey. Convolute is a cheaper (monetary-wise) thing to use.
I hope this helped you decide on cards!

fffume and BigSaltyJohn: In theory we could just mainboard Niv-Mizzet, Parun and not use Crackling Drake or Wee Dragonauts . There are enough instants and sorceries in the deck to justify that change. That would give two open slots in the sideboard for another type of counterspell like Ionize or other circumstantial spells like Aether Gust .

A couple Brazen Borrower would be great in here! It can be used as removal and is board wipe protection. Also makes kind of makes your mana curve a bit better. I'd cut a Vendilion Clique and a Wee Dragonauts to fit them in.
One Mutavault could be a good inclusion as an extra wizard/faerie that can activate itself to meet the requirements for Wizard's Lightning/Retort.

I dont like Wee Dragonauts anymore with the new elemental wizard with haste is much better tempo. I would also drop Risk Factor because of curve reasons. Admiral's Order isnt going to trigger raid when you want it so also would drop. Would add in more Shock and Chart a Course dropping the land count to 20

Wardino, I believe I had both
as preliminary card when I started building it. With the Lavarunner I kept running into the issue of losing the haste and +1/+0 bonus if I didn't have Adeliz out to compensate for it. Otherwise it have worked fine.

I think Wee Dragonauts was made for this kind of deck. Perhaps Ghitu Lavarunner and Rile could help, and Stealth Mission could be entertaining as it could boost Dreadhorde Arcanist among other things, which could bring Stealth Mission back and such. Overall, This deck looks pretty fun, good picks!!
