Orantus: I really can't use Zap here, because it will wipe my board.

WalkingWormFood: Ooh, interesting idea! Thanks :)

How about swapping Confusion in the Ranks with Zap ?

Just because I'm not making comments in here to have a go at your deck - I love playing my Zada deck - here's a few instants or sorceries you don't have that do target, and draw you cards that aren't in your list:

Panic - who cares if Zada (and by extension, all your creatures) can't block on your turn? Draw some cards next turn!

Zap - it won't kill Zada, who cares if it kills a few tokens? Draw some cards!

Flare - as Zap, but get the cards next turn, preparing for a big play later.

Aftershock might interest you: still triggers your commander. Burn Trail can trigger multiple times. Staggershock, Flare, and Zap are all efficient as well.

Hey there!

I run a Zada deck which is budget ($50) and is wicked fun to play, so I thought I'd offer you a few notes (I hope you don't mind).

I'm not a huge fan of Zap and Flare, because too many of your guys have small butts and will die for the card draw, which is counter-productive. I run all the other cantrips you have here and Skullclamp and I find that to be fine.

Because your dudes have such small butts, First strike is AMAZING. However you need an increase in the creatures' power, as none of them are particularly large. Due to this I've avoided stuff like Temur Battle Rage or Overblaze which are often equivalent to a +1/+0 with your tokens and 1/1 critters. Sure Strike gives a good buff and first strike, Bloodmark Mentor is a great first strike enabler, and Fists of the Anvil, Screaming Fury and Uncanny Speed are all useful buffs that I'm always happy to draw. Screaming Fury and Uncanny Speed have the added benefit of giving haste - in fact Screaming Fury in particular has won me some games on the spot.

You can check out my deck here Yes We Cantrip if you're interested. I've done a fairly thorough write up on how it works.

Good luck!
