Young Pyromancer Discussion

+1 This looks fun and I have had something similar in mind for quite some time now.

My thoughts after running scepter for a while are that if you are going to pay 2 to activate, why not Lightning Helix? I think the general consensus about which instants are the best favors 1cmc things because of t1 comboing and Snapcaster Mage - but if I am paying 2 for it every time anyway ... On the other hand, layering other instants on top of the exiled one can be very effective and is much easier at 1 cmc.

For my build, I was looking at Memory Lapse, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, and now Elite Arcanist as well (in addition to what I saw on your list). I might go with Goblin Electromancer in favor of Young Pyromancer for legacy because it seems like chump blocking makes less of a difference comparatively in legacy vs modern.

I disagree with your assessment of Abbot having both played with and seen it played now, I think it's actively bad in this shell--I don't think it's fair to say it draws you a card. In the best case, it does sort of draw you a card (you may be able to play the exiled card otherwise it's gone forever, but this is definitely not the same as drawing the card), in the worst you exile a card you'd rather have in your hand. There is enough counter magic and not enough lands to make Abbot good at least in my list. still have a 2/1 prowess creature, which is better than Snapcaster after he snaps back his spell.

I think you're forgetting about Vapor Snag, which makes Snapcaster Mage significantly better. Here's a sequence for you: Bolt-Snap-Bolt-Snang-Bolt-Snap-Bolt, that's twelve points of burn that you can throw around however you please, not to mention the times you can swing with Snapcaster.

Abbot is a cool card, I just don't think this is the right shell for it and it certainly wouldn't make sense to cut Snapcaster for it, let alone much better cards, like Young Pyromancer. If your goal is card advantage, Abbot does not seem like the correct tool.

They get the first shot at using those cards, so I get concerned.

That's why Leyline of Anticipation is in the main: the primary plan is to cast your spells, including Day's Undoing, on your opponent's turn. In the worst case, you resolve Day's Undoing on your own turn and draw into counter magic, like Disrupting Shoal--you can even tap out for this, which is crucial in certain board states. The deck is surprisingly consistent in this regard and so far play testing it against some of the tier one Modern decks I've had very good results. I understand your skepticism of Day's Undoing, but I think the card is starting to show results that are undeniably impressive. Of course, your mileage my vary. :)

Seems like a pretty good deck build, +1 for the Young Pyromancer or as I call him Chandra's brother

if your trying to play a budget red, i recommend Kiln Fiend, Young Pyromancer and Brute Force. I understand the card selection i gave you sways away from heroic, but is still in the realm of cast spells to trigger pumps. Also consider Magmatic Insight, it could be viable, i mean it does trigger heroic and gives you 2 cards.

When I first saw Monastery Mentor I wanted to build a deck with it Young Pyromancer and Talrand, Sky Summoner as the only creature spells.

It amuses me that this deck is two thirds of that.

Wobbles808 on Grixis Delver Prototype, help needed please!

It is very possible to run the two together. A creature base of 3x Abbot of Keral Keep 3x Young Pyromancer 4x Delver of Secrets  Flip 2x Gurmag Angler and 2x Tasigur, the Golden Fang and your 18 Lands leaves you with 28 spell spots. Try cutting the Dismember another Remand as it only buys you time, and maybe a Murderous Cut or a Terminate. I also think you only need 2 Kolaghan's Commands. Maybe cut one of those.

Well it already seems that I need you help. My friend is looking for a modern deck that is cheap and competitive as well. Can I recommend him your deck? He will really enjoy it. Thanks!

Your Grixis Delver colleague,

when you have Young Pyromancer and red burn spells you dont need 4 Cyclonic Rift(thez are no budget).
