AEtherflame Wall is neat. I like that for one less mana you only lose 1 toughness. The five toughness was relevant against your deck since it made it harder to Kessig Wolf Run over it. You ended up trading a redundant Elvish Mystic for it, but that doesn't mean it will always make a difference. I'll have to think about that. I don't have the Aetherflames...I'll probably be able to find them with friends but there's no card shop within 6 hours of driving.

I really like Silence , I just don't think this is the deck for it. I'll probably run it in my Azorius deck that I've been plotting. It just hasn't been a priority for me lately. I don't feel like Perimeter Captain does anything for me though. I am looking to stall and Young Pyromancer 's tokens do a great job of that. This is why I've been looking at Lingering Souls too. Tokens can also turn into threats, the biggest downside is I can't toss them with Chandra for damage.

Tempeszt on When are +1/+1 counters from ...

10 hours ago

So, I'm fighting an opponent with my American Young Pyromancer deck, and he attacks with a Brimaz, but not just any Lord of the Kitties, this one has Sunbond and Unflinching Courage on it.

He hasn't gained any life since casting the Sunbond and I declare to block with two of my 1/1 Elemental tokens, and cast the "Turn" half of Turn / Burn on Brimaz; following up with a Mizzium Skin and then a Boros Charm giving one of the elementals double-strike.

My opponent's assertion is that Brimaz-cum-Froggie is now a 2/3 with lifelink and trample, which I agree with. He further asserts that when Bribbit deals his damage in the normal damage step, and is dealt his 2, the +1/+1 counters from Sunbond go on before he dies.

It's one of the most complex interactions I've run across in actual play. Any insight?

It looks to me like a mostly burn deck you may want to consider creatures like Guttersnipe , Satyr Firedancer , or Young Pyromancer

Hmmm Young Pyromancer mayhaps?

I assume you're going to put in keranos, but you need more draw. Scrying helps a lot but it's not QUITE the same as draw, though I can see it working the same with keranos in it. Mizzium Mortars and Cyclonic Rift are great to clear for an alpha. You could also use some dual lands, shock and scry, a playset of each would allow you to drop down 22 lands about.

I'd love to see how this works out for you though.

I am not so sure about those Daze s, they don't synergize with Shardless Agent , you never want to hit those.You could replace them for more Ancestral Vision or if you feel that you don't need to go that route, there's always Jace, the Mind Sculptor .I'd personally add one or even two more Gitaxian Probe because it works really well with Young Pyromancer and gives vital information, especially because you've opted to go Red over Black which inherently makes the combo matchups much harder.In the end it's all up to you, I'm just suggesting.Overall I like the idea, I'm personally a huge fan of Shardless Agent decks.

Hey there, I'm interested in your set of Darkblast and your Young Pyromancer . My binder isn't great either, but let me know if you see something there you'd like to trade for. Thanks!

mtgplayer100 i have actually found Young Pyromancer to fit very nicely in this deck, he slows down argo opponents, he is great in a control match up and because of my sideboard i can increase or limit the amount of burn in my deck. I would consider my deck to be in the middle or a Big Boros Deck and a burn deck, but my side board can make it nearly full burn when required.

I am interested in knowing what you would put instead of of Young Pyromancer

Replaced 4x Life from the Loam with 2x Ponder + 2x Young Pyromancer

That should help getting rid of unwanted goods and adding a few Elementals for chump blocking or an occasional attack
