Goblin Electromancer is only really good in a deck where the amount of mana you have matters, like Storm like Osang has said. Young Pyromancer is played in all formats he's legal in (Modern & Legacy U/R Delver plus Vintage Gush Storm), so that should tell you about his power.

Young Pyromancer is a much better choice by a long shot. The proactivity and board state he provides is way stronger than Goblin Electromancer and his ability. Electromancer is better fit in a Storm deck.

I'm making a casual delver deck and i'm pretty happy with it. I have young pyromancer in the deck currently and he is able to spit out a large amount of elementals unless removed early, but I recently have obtained a playset of goblin electromancer, and his ability to make my spells cheaper in tandem with guttersnipe and card draw like think twice has made him very interesting. So long story short what card is better in a delver spell heavy deck.

Goblin Electromancer VS Young Pyromancer

I'd just like to point out that the one RUG Delver deck that top 8d on Sunday ran Young Pyromancer instead of Nimble Mongoose because the pilot though it was no longer an option because of Treasure Cruise ..... Tarmogoyf was also only a 3 of.

Nivmagus Elemental ... exile each spell that IS CAST as Cipher, and put 2x +1/+1 counters.

Talrand, Sky Summoner ... even if the spell was Exiled from the above Elemental, it would still count as "Being Casted" and you would get a 2/2 Bird Token.

both work nicely with the Cipher decks and even better with unblockable cipher decks...

a little more costly but Last Thoughts is a nice cipher spell too.

I see you went B/U but R/U and Cipher has some nice combos.... Young Pyromancer , Guttersnipe , Goblin Electromancer are all such red cards.

I could almost see a B/R/U deck working for you.

GlistenerAgent on Keranos in Delver?

Yes. Hell yes. Incredible amounts of yes.

The creature set for Grixis Delver should probably consist of just 4 Delver of Secrets  Flip , 4 Young Pyromancer or Dark Confidant , 4 Snapcaster Mage and 1-2 of what I call "flood finishers". They're topdecks, and if they resolve gain you a lot of advantage. The two most common examples of these are Batterskull and Keranos, God of Storms , and I highly advise playing Keranos instead of the really bad creatures that are currently in your deck. Civilized Scholar  Flip is quite poor, Xathrid Necromancer is pretty poor, and you can do better than the Aristocrat.

Hi Everybody! (Hi Dr. Nick!)

So I've got this deck. It's essentially a Grixis Delver deck. The thing is, I want it to more effectively lock down my opponent with removal and discard while I develop a board presence. The downside of this strategy is I've found it to be a little slower, and can often run out of steam. As a result I experimented with Falkenrath Aristocrat and a human subtheme, since I like Xathrid Necromancer and Young Pyromancer is a delver staple. I even tested Civilized Scholar  Flip for some looting and a 5/1 beater when it's relevant.

My question...would Keranos, God of Storms be a decent addition? I know it sees some Modern play, but I'm wondering if it makes sense or am I just crazy. I don't like running out of steam, and him throwing Lightning Bolt s and drawing me cards is awesome.

Anyway, the deck is
