Young Pyromancer Discussion

Thanks a lot for the suggestions. I was actually already thinking of Murderous Cut but I forgot to put it in. I had actually never heard of Logic Knot, but I'll definitely test it out. Grim Lavamancer is another nice one, I might pull the Young Pyromancer's for him.

Im personally not a fan of Young Pyromancer and Gatekeeper of Malakir, since this seems like more of a control deck, but they aren't bad. Have you ever considered Logic Knot? With all these spells hitting the graveyard, it seems very powerful. Especially considering you aren't playing Snapcaster Mage, you wont get punished for exiling a bunch of your spells. Same goes for Murderous Cut and (even though a little pricy), Tasigur, the Golden Fang.

A techy card that can end the game rather fast is Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker. It seems like a card this deck would love to have!

Just some things to consider. I always loved Grixis Control so im glad youre making it work in Modern! +1

More consistent than Young Pyromancer, harder to remove.

What was wrong with Young Pyromancer?

I can't target Shu Yun with his ability or any of my other spells if he has shroud. I'm already running Madcap Skills in the slot I could dedicate to Hero's Blade. Yes, Blade's permanent. However, it's a far worse top deck and isn't strictly limited to my commander. The equip of makes this thing incredibly unwieldy. Some games I just need to slap a Madcap Skills on something as simple as a Young Pyromancer. The menace ability comes in handy quite often. Even if it doesn't guarantee unblockability, it often means uncomfortable blocks.

Thanks for the feedback! I used Damping Matrix over Stony Silence because I wanted some anti-twin/kiki. I like the addition of Geist of Saint Traft and Rest in Peace. I think for the mainboard I'm going to take out a Young Pyromancer and a Steam Vents to make room for geist. However, I'm not sure what to take out of the sideboard to make room for RIP. Any suggestions? Maybe a Blood Moon and a Damping Matrix?

have you ever tried this deck in a tournment? this looks like it's depending too much on luck... by the way, since you are playing so many mountains: Fireblast?

also, Price of Progress or Stormblood Berserker might be interesting on this list...

i think you are gonna have a lot of trouble with counterspells >.<

maybe Young Pyromancer can help you out (since you play many non-creature spells...

also, Grim Lavamancer with some fetchlands might be nice too.

I know many of these cards go against the main objective/archetype of the deck, but i'm trying to help with ideas... if your deck doesn't comes with a creature in the opening hand, it tends to malfunction D:

i don't know... D:

Ok, well I feel like Young Pyromancer and Monastery Swiftspear want to be in here. Gurmag Angler is just a good playable. I don't find Pulse Tracker to be too good in that case, unless you increase the number of dudes that ping when they attack, like Leeching Sliver, which gets better with the more you have. I do feel like Hellrider wants to be a 4 of either way.

I'm not actually a fan of Guul Draz Vampire, intimidate on a black creature in a very heavy black-meta right now isn't great. Even on the budget scale, zombies are prevalent.
