I’ve recently been toying with the idea of a one of Chandra, Torch of Defiance. I’ve only played a few games with it but it has been awesome so far. Still want to play test some more when I get the chance before adding it for sure.
Wandering Fumarole is an excellent card.
You only have two, so coming in tapped is not a big deal.

Oh yeah, I love that card. It can be rough in a deck with so many turn one plays and sometimes never sees a 4th land. People dont really play tapped lands in modern but Im more on the casual side so I think it will be fine.
Plus with all the removal in Modern it can be nice to have an extra threat in the mana base in a deck that has so few threats.

I do remember when it was in standard winning games with just Fumarole and burn spells.

I used it to Crew Skysovereign, Consul Flagship, after they killed all my Creatures.

I like the inclusion of Enigma Drake! +1 from me!
How do you feel about the inclusion of TiTi to play more like UR pyro? Playing TiTi shifts delver more towards midrange/control which leads to a very interesting style of play. (as more of a general discussion on the future of delver)

Solid construction for a budget deck. The Wandering Fumaroles look lousy in a deck with such a low curve, though; you'll probably end up mulliganing more than you should because of it (you can't realistically keep any hand where Fumarole is your only land). I would also give cards like Logic Knot and Grim Lavamancer a look.

SeekerofSecrets thanks for the upvote! I defiantly feel like Enigma Drake doesnt get enough love. I have actually been thinking hard about replacing Young Peezy with Thing in the Ice Flip. I dont feel the deck has room for both and I dislike how they interact. TiTi can help you come back from some situations where Peezy would not. And I think TiTi can kill faster than Peezy can. Another cool thing is that Bedlam Reveler is a horror so TiTi doesnt bounce it. It usually only takes one hit from Awoken Horror to get them into burn range.
rothgar13 thanks for the upvote! I agree with what you said about Fumarole but I thought they were worth testing out. They defiantly make one land keeps a lot worse for sure. I considered Logic Knot and Grim Lavamancer but they make Enigma Drake pretty weak and Bedlam Reveler impossible to cast.

In my list i play delver, titi, peezy, reveler and snake for 13 threats. I honestly love the mix, i would test titi over peezy to see if you like it, but they arnt awful paired together!
March 8, 2018 7:42 p.m.
Ive defiantly tested with TiTi before but Ive never tested with both TiTi and Peezy, maybe I will test it when I get a chance. What card do you mean by snake? Cryptic Serpent?
March 8, 2018 8:30 p.m.
Yea cryptic serpent is my big dumb beater of choice!

I don't like the Burst Lightning, considered Rift Bolt?
March 9, 2018 7:50 p.m.
I had Rift Bolt in before and they were kinda awkward a lot of the times, I also tried Lava Spike in that spot and not hitting creatures was bad. The Burst Lightning are newly added and I havent played with them yet. Not sure how they will do.

Hi! The deck looks nice.
I'd suggest you Logic Knot as a better Mana Leak. May be swap all them or two (because it may sometimes be awkward that it needs TWO blue rather than ONE as Leak does, but overall it's better than Leak). And may be even one Remand, but it's very good in decks that just want to kill opponent very fast, so it may act like an actual Counterspell with upside(or just a two-mana Cryptic Command "counter, draw"=) ).
One Burst Lightning is fine. I think 3 is too much. May be swap two/one for third Electrolyze and/or Forked Bolts?
Also Boomerang is a consideration because it bounces lands!
If Fetchs+schocks are too costly for you then mana base looks ok. But if you can afford them better swap 4 Shivan Reefs and some of Spirebluff Canal and Wandering Fumaroles for 4 Scalding Tarn 2-4 Steam Vents and possibly some other fetches like Polluted Delta and Flooded Strand (because they are the cheapest blue-ish fetches). And if you'll go for fetch+shock package you possibly even can go to 19 lands with so much cantrips and such low curve!
March 10, 2018 7:50 a.m.
I also agree with the suggestion about cutting the Burst Lightning down because it's essentially a shock with a kicker you may not ever have enough mana to pay and even then the kicker probably wouldn't even seem worth paying. When it comes to burn a lot of the value cards that can even come close to Lightning Bolt are when you can splash green or white, but I doubt you want to do that so might I suggest Shard Volley and Searing Blaze? I know they're not ideal but if you want a little more versatility to hit either a creature or player at instant speed with 3 damage they may be the best options you have despite the drawback. Hope this helps, cheers.

Very nicely done sir. I love seeing decks like this. When you pick up Blood Moon do you plan to main board or sideboard it?
March 10, 2018 8:21 p.m.
Thank you! It will most likely be in the sideboard, I could maindeck it though, my friend plays Tron.
March 10, 2018 8:29 p.m.
If main boarding Blood Moon I strongly recommend/suggest to consider getting rid of Opt and running Spreading Seas... Although it will decrease odds of flipping Delver of Secrets Flip as well as instant speed cantrip/raising the overall avg. CMC of the deck... The side by side combined effects of Blood Moon/Spreading Seas is very strong.
