i don't know much about vintage, but i do know that the moxes and ancestral recall are restricted to 1 of each. Also Young Pyromancer is a beast in a deck like this and if the pieces of power you want are all 4 ofs, maybe you should get a Black Lotus and other pieces of power in there. a couple other cards you could use would be Chain Lightning s and replace preordain with Ponder
26 land is way too much for such a fast and low CMC deck. I'd go 22 or even 20. I think Howl of the Horde could also be too slow.
I'd put in some Magma Jet and Dragon Fodder -like spells. The first because scrying helps to filter the deck and draw what you need, the second for more creatures on the battlefield. Instead you could also get Tormenting Voice to keep your hand full. Cone of flame is a pretty good card if you need to clear the way midgame, but 5 mana is a lot for a RDW. I think it could better be replaced by Young Pyromancer , Trumpet Blast , and/or some more burn like Searing Blood
Final Suggestion: -6 mountain, -2 Howl of the Horde, -3 Cone of Flame, +4 Magma Jet, +4 Tormenting Voice, +3 Searing Blood
Could you maybe take a look at one of my decks, for example
One other thought, is you could try to be a more token oriented deck, and then have Purphoros, God of the Forge constantly dealing damage for you. for example with Talrand, Sky Summoner and Young Pyromancer , along with Purphoros, God of the Forge casting Molten Birth would deal 8 damage for 3 mana, with the possibility you could cast it again. just a thought if that is a route you would like to go.
What do you think of Treasure Cruise ? This is obviously an insane card, and it seems to fit well here. You cantrip a lot, crack some fetches, maybe your delver gets bolted, a spell gets countered... to have at least five cards in your graveyard by turn four is a fairly baseline expectation, and to have seven or more is not at all unusual in games we've played, and I run aggro! Against control, this does a lot of work helping you come back from behind (one of tempo's biggest weaknesses) for a very low mana cost, especially if, say you've pinned your hopes on a Young Pyromancer that ate a Verdict. In any stalemate, this is a great draw, and in any attrition-based matchup (eg. Jund, Abzan), three new cards is exactly what you want when the dust settles and you're each running off of topdecks.
This spell is great in almost any stage of the game. Playtest it and see what you think.
maybe only have four of the important cards and three of the less important card etc. it would make the deck a bit more diverse. maybe a Scouring Sands or two would work for the Polymorphist's Jest . if you have Battlefield Thaumaturge out your basically playing a board wipe for 3 cmc.I would also recomend looking into some scry cards as well as cards that put out tokens, like Young Pyromancer or Talrand, Sky Summoner as this deck could benifit from them. I hope this helps :D
Sorry, I've been super swamped with other stuff to deal with and as such have had very little time to be on site, let alone write an article or tally results completely, I am currently working on a final list using tcg mids and your prices from the first list as comparison but it is taking some time because I can only work on it on the occasion. What do you think of doing this type of contest each Set release?
While I have this chance, I have a question for you on Modern. I know you play a good bit of it so I was wondering what you thought of Jeskai Delver running a creature base of:
I was thinking something along the lines of 16 creatures, 24 spells, 18 Land, but I am pretty new to Modern and was looking for a more experienced players decision.
Finally back on topic, I wanted again thank you for all your help and apologize for having you make those lists and only use part of 1 of them but truth be told, I've been pretty busy these past few weeks. I understand it's probably frustrating to do something for naught and I wanted to let you know I'm sorry, and thankful for the help you've already given me. I feel really bad that I wasted your time.
lordoftheshadows Is pretty much right. I played around with Patriotic Delver for awhile and loved it. The creature base consisted of Delver of Secrets Flip , Young Pyromancer , Geist of Saint Traft and Vendilion Clique . Then jam some burn, cantrips like Serum Visions , Remand s and Path to Exile s and the deck is pretty efficient.
