Wizard's Lightning Discussion
2 days ago
This is my first commander deck I got a few months back and have built it up slowly but am in dire need of help finishing it. I know it is slow and probably bad but I like it and it suits me just fine. I like how it can focus on the graveyard but the only strategies I have for it is the Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank set and the Sphinx's Tutelage. Any help is appreciated.

Yes, this is a way to deal damage but also, depending on a number of them, they can halt casting of Wizard's Lightning which in this situation is kinda problematic. But nothing stops me from testing!

First thing, Naru Meha, Master Wizard doesn't seem worth it when opt is the only thing you can copy main deck since it only copies spells you control. The +1/+1 is cool but I would thing a more tempo gameplan would end games faster and more efficiently than pure bounce and beatdown. Adding red for Lightning Bolt and Wizard's Lightning would make it much, much more aggressive immediately and lets you play Stormchaser Mage and other prowess guys like Soul-Scar Mage, which plays very well with the burn spells.
I'm tempted to try a jeskai wizards deck splashing white for Reflector Mage, Path to Exile and sideboard flexibility personally. The red just seems so important for actually ending games. It does seem like your choices are mostly budgetary, have you seen the wizard deck SaffronOlive played a few weeks ago? It was pretty consistent at around the same price point. Good luck! Wizards are a sweet tribe with a lot of cool tricks.

drsnailtrail I have deeply considered Riddleform but sadly in my playtesting with it I would always want a Wizard's Retort, Unsummon or Spell Pierce in its place. Although it is mostly a two-mana 3/3 flyer that can scry, it's not a Wizard, so it doesn't turn on Wizard's Lightning or Wizard's Retort. Also, it doesn't get pumped by Adeliz and it doesn't even have prowess so I can't protect it from commonly used burn spells like Abrade and Lightning Strike.
I don't really like Omenspeaker because it doesn't help me win faster with more answers. A 1/3 for 2 is not what this deck wants in the 75.
Even though Dismissive Pyromancer does have a draw engine attached to it, it doesn't have prowess but in replace it has a solid burn spell on a 2/2 body.
Thanks for the suggestions!

Not a ton of legendaries get played nowadays but the ones that do are super annoying,game ending, and have to be exiled or their coming back.They are also really "build around me". I would suggest you try to look at all the legends cause even most aren't broken overpowered, they can promote crazy fun decks! Also instead of Unwind and Cancel I suggest Abrade, Admiral's Order.Abrade is versatile and can be used almost any time. Admiral's Order is strictly better than Cancel as it can be 1 mana sometimes. Also standard does have a Lightning Bolt in Wizard's Lightning it just turns into bolt when you have a wizard on the field instead,

Way too optimistic that Chainwhirler will not be a problem post rotation. As long as it's a card in Standard tokens and x/1 creatures are not safe to play; play them at your own risk. Wizards needed to bite the bullet and ban Chainwhirler. Admit it was a mistake printing it right after tribal Ixalan, fire whoever is finalizing the completely overpowered red cards for Standard and move on. Unfortunately, like all Wizards decisions they do the opposite of what needs to be done.
When in the last two years has mono red not been a good, powerful and even dominate deck to play in Standard? Lightning Strike, Shock, Wizard's Lightning, Viashino Pyromancer, Demanding Dragon and Chainwhirler are enough reasons to keep mono red as a good option to play post rotation.
