Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, put a 1/1 red Elemental token onto the battlefield.

I agree with your argument jaggthemillerabout Firedancer being ''murderable'' as well.
Should I go with Young Pyromancer and Chandra, what should I take out?
Any and all suggestions are appreciated!!! Thank you!!!
Eduardogbg dont get me wrong, satyr is a good card for this deck i am not trashing it or saying to take them out (i know i said to take it out in my previous comment) but my main argument is you are saying Guttersnipe is ''murderable'' where satyr is prone to the same weakness..that is my main argument..talking it over with my co-worker . you should keep satyr over guttersnipe. i will step down and say that he isnt a more competitive (for this deck). but i do stand by my 1st post were Young Pyromancer and atleast 1 chandra .that would make this deck better.
onto another note my coworker suggested 2-4 of Burning Earth simply because in standard atm alot of people are running 2 colors and some 3 colors..where there deck is filled with shocks/temples (big time if they have 3 colors)
An idea I had was if you went more heavy on the spells you could try to use Epic Experiment
. Since most of your spells cost 3 or less it might work! if you have a Guttersnipe
on the field you could do some epic damage. Or a Young Pyromancer
for mass tokens. Just an idea
Brainstorm is Legacy only, so I'd recommend dropping them for 2 more Serum Visions and some Sleight of Hand . Snapcaster is obviously something that would make this deck a powerhouse, you could probably get some Shivan Reef for your mana base as well. Maybe a few Runechanter's Pike for threats and Young Pyromancer for board state.
is quite weak in a format with Lightning Bolt
(Also run Lightning Bolt
) in its place I think Young Pyromancer
because while it dies just as easy with the amount of instances you are running you will probably be able to gain some value anyways.
Also with the amount of creatures you are running Mizzium Skin isn't really necessary you would be better off with Mana Leak . I wouldn't play so many Gut Shot s you could fit in those Lightning Bolt I mentioned here.
I would never take out Satyr Firedancer . That card like Eduardogbg said, allows me to burn my opponent AND keep the board clean. If I deal 2 dmg, Firedancer deals 2, if I cast Toil / Trouble , that's a ton of dmg.
Guttersnipe and Young Pyromancer I really think would slow things down. I really like having 28 instant speed burn spells and idk what I would take out. Turn / Burn w/ the Oracle of Bones removes creatures too crazy for me to burn or Toil / Trouble is a very good as a finisher.
Spark Jolt scry turn 1 is underrated. I scry you cry.
If anything I could prolly fit in a cpl of Young Pyromancer .
I want to thank you all for the suggestions!!!! THANK YOU!!
I like the idea of this deck and I have a few suggestions for you/it:
Firstly, I'd suggest getting rid of Flames of the Firebrand for Lightning Strike which is cheaper, instant speed instead of sorcery and does the same damage. Magma Jet or possibly even Warleader's Helix are both great options for this kind of deck too.
I personally don't think Fall of the Hammer is worth it in this deck unless it definitely does trigger 2 Heroics, and even then I'd still probably cut it. I'm not sure if your creatures could reliably be big enough to use it as a form of removal should you need to, but I can't say for certain. I know Heroic creatures can get huge pretty quickly but if things go badly then it could be a dead draw. It'll probably just require some testing and practice to see if it's worth it or not.
I'm also not sure whether Young Pyromancer fits this deck properly. I run a Boros Burn deck with them, Guttersnipe and Satyr Firedancer which works well because they're all together and it's the purpose of the deck, but just the 2 Pyromancers in this deck probably won't do you much good. Akroan Skyguard is a solid choice if you were looking for another Heroic 2-drop. If not there are a lot of other choices, mainly in white though.
