Young Pyromancer Discussion

Joker4242 on Mono Red Damage Trigger Deck

6 days ago

Hey, welcome to the world of spell-slinging! So if you plan on continuing down the aggressive road I would suggest adding more burn spells (spells that deal damage). Probably remove your buff spells because they are just really dangerous to play. Someone could kill the creature you try to target and then your buff spell fizzles out and is useless. Burn spells (like Lightning Bolt) are way better because you can kill a creature, but also deal direct damage if you need to. I really like Relic Amulet, pretty much the only card from Zendikar rising that I actually really liked. but to make it work, you need more instants and sorceries. Plus it looks like you are not playing many wizards. You could go a more instant/sorcery burn heavy deck instead of having lots of creatures (instead you could only play creatures that have trigger abilities for whenever you play spells, sort of like support cards). Like Guttersnipe, Young Pyromancer, and Heartfire Immolator.

the other problem I foresee is your lack of card advantage. Red is so fast that it burns through its resources extremely quickly. You are left with an empty hand in no time at all. I would suggest finding some stability cards. Because You seem to be going the fast damage route, cards like Light Up the Stage, Risk Factor, or Tectonic Reformation.

If you want to go more creatures, perhaps consider going with goblins. Very cheap, easy to play, and there are certain cards that can build you a ravenous army in no time at all.

Hope all this is somewhat useful. I am happy to help if you got any other questions.

magwaaf How could I forget about that? Here it is.

Izzet Tempo - Tournament Ready

I will take one Island out for the Steam Vents. I will also add 4x Young Pyromancer, 4x Monastery Swiftspear and 4x Lightning Strike by taking out 4x Riddleform, 4x Roil Eruption, 2x Spikefield Hazard  Flip and 2x Anticipate. Also, I will take one Roiling Vortex out of the sideboard, and put one Ral, Izzet Viceroy in the sideboard.

Red_X on Thoughts on Savor the Moment

I'm wondering if anyone's tried using Savor the Moment, and their results. I'm picturing it in a Young Pyromancer/Monastery Mentor style storm-ish deck, but I don't know how to build those decks well enough to test it. Early game it can potentially be a 3 mana blue Explore, which I recognize isn't great, but it can help you get enough mana to go off against fairer decks. Late game it's a cantripping Burst of Speed for a turn where you make a bunch of tokens, letting you win on the spot. Essentially, I'm thinking of it as a card that gives a decent amount of flexibility and sometimes steals wins while staying in blue, but I don't know if it's just too clunky. If anyone else has tried to use it outside of Sword of Feast and Famine style untap decks input would be appreciated.

EpoH on Wort, The Whore Mother

Reeeaaaaly liked your deck, looks pretty solid and fun to play! I also, for the life of me, cannot get rid of Dragon Broodmother

Has Young Pyromancer shown good results for you? It never did a lot for me and it was mostly just a blocker, but that's because my LGS meta revolves arround early infect damage haha

Have you consider the new MDFL? Bala Ged Recovery  Flip is pretty cheap and Valakut Awakening  Flip can get arround bad hands, be a "3 mana: Draw a card" aaand it can be a land!

Decimate was one of the best cuts i made in my deck, traded for Abrade and between Kaalia of the Vast, Rafiq of the Many and that god-forsaken Land that turns into an flying infect creature, i think it was pretty worth it but, then again, kinda early hitting playgroup.

Again, i really liked the way you've built this. if you'd be so kind as to take a look at my wort, and see anything i might improve, i'd really appreciate it ;)

ellie-is on Kykar's Tokens & Cantrips

1 month ago

In other news, I think I might remove Improbable Alliance and Mad Ratter as they very sadly only make tokens once per turn. Maybe bring back Goblinslide or Nadir Kraken, which require paying a cost but can be done as many times as I want. Wish I could find more Young Pyromancer type cards, lol.

TriusMalarky on Kykar's Tokens & Cantrips

I really like Teferi's Ageless Insight and Whirlwind of Thought here -- they'll draw you an absolute boatload of cards.

It also looks like you're sort of trying to storm off maybe? Or are you aiming for a token horde?

I'd recommend a primary Storm plan with a secondary token flood with cards like Young Pyromancer. Empty the Warrens is great regardless of if you want to take the storm path, but Grapeshot and Brain Freeze, as well as Haze of Rage, are pretty solid win conditions.

Use to look for 1-mana red spells that draw a card. With those and Kykar, you can chain together a crapton of spells in a single turn.

Also, Battlefield Forge, Shivan Reef, Cascade Bluffs, Mystic Gate, Rugged Prairie, Skycloud Expanse, Sulfur Falls, Glacial Fortress, Clifftop Retreat should fix those 9 taplands you've got. They are all about $3 or less on TCGPlayer last I checked, so they shouldn't be too expensive.
