Nobody knows for sure (except maybe the artist), but I'm guessing the character on Winterflame is Shaman of the Great Hunt (even though the axe silhouette isn't quite right), who is possibly Chianul (from the flavor text).There's more about Temur shamans, Chinual, and the Dragon's Throat in this guide and he or she also left some flavor text on these three cards.
But yeah, it could be Garruk, Apex Predator (even though the axe silhouette isn't quite right for him either). Garruk has never officially been to Tarkir, but he could have travelled there right after meeting the Planeswalker 'Icy' at the end of this story, if maybe he thought Icy came from Tarkir or something ...

Deco_y and Gleeock,
I'm with y'all on Gift of Orzhova and Commander's Authority ... they're not my favorites but they're way up there.
Thalia's in Strength of Arms ... is that maybe what you meant?

I always carry a Winterflame for when folks ask about the art on my playmat.
I've also started carrying around a few Veteran's Sidearms, so I can give one out as a small token of thanks whenever I find out my opponent served in the military.
Besides that though, nothing really ... though I do enjoy collecting foreign language versions my favorite cards.

Probably the deck you are looking for is more like UR prowess. And while the deck rothgar13 recommends (blue moon) is a strong deck, it is loaded with some of the most expensive cards in modern, with no real options for budget substitutes. You don't get to play many counterspells in UR prowess - you need to play your spells during your own turn to trigger prowess, and counterspells mainly goes in your opponents turn. Uses cards like Stormchaser Mage and Monastery Swiftspear, and (if you feel janky) also Runechanter's Pike.
Sorry to say, but a card like Winterflame is not being played in modern, because it's underpowered compared to what else you can do (in the case of winterflame, you could Lightning Bolt instead with 2 mana to spare).

First off I've only ever played casually, but with this deck I would like to have it somewhat viable if I were to take it somewhere...
I want to make a deck that uses a lot of instants and sorceries. When looking at cards I saw a lot of Blue/Red cards I thought were cool such as Winterflame Swerve and Double Negative. Also really love the art for Enigma Drake. Other cards I've checked out are Goblin Electromancer and Hypersonic Dragon
So I think the best idea might be to use a bunch of burn and counters. I don't really have a feel for how a deck like this would work out or what else it needs in the deck. I do really like dragons and I know there are several cards that benefit from having dragons such as Draconic Roar and Silumgar's Scorn. But I assume that a deck like this would need some card draw and more specific stuff like Skullcrack
I was hoping that you guys might be able to give me some of the crucial cards that come to mind when thinking of a deck like this. Any must have creatures or spells? Any mechanics that you think would fit in this deck? Oh and if I were to use Hypersonic Dragon how would I best take advantage of the flash ability?
