Description

Mill yourself with Dream Twist and Glimpse the Unthinkable to get cards in the grave fast.

Then set up some insane combo in the late game with all of your Seething Song in the graveyard. Braid of Fire can help in this aspect

I have pulled of like 17 mana with flashback shenanigans in the late game. Thats where all your milled Lightning Bolts and Pillar of Flames and Comet Storms come in

Go for the Throat stalls.

Braid of Fire grants you tons of mana along with Seething Song.

Altar of the Lost takes of 2 mana from flashback costs for one card which can be the difference between winning and losing.

Armored Skaab stalls and mills along with Dream Twist and Glimpse the Unthinkable .

Past in Flames is the main card in the deck. It makes it easy to get one or two mass flashbacks to end the game.

Snapcaster Mage is a mini Past in Flames and can help block.

If you're using the burn spells to fight off creatures, I might use more black in order to gain access to some of the better black removal, which will work against larger creatures in addition to small ones. Cards like Go for the Throat will work wonders in this deck. I would also probably get rid of Dream Twist - it's expensive, and isn't efficient enough to be worth it. Also, RUB but no Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker ???? I would probably run at least one copy, since your deck seems to be in it for the long haul anyway.

Ok, after playtesting your deck a couple of times I take back the Nicol Bolas comment. However, I still think Go for the Throat would be stellar. I might make these changes:

-2 Shock -2 Dream Twist -1 Comet Storm (Good card, but it can be very detrimental if you draw more than 1 early on)

+4 Go for the Throat +1 Altar of the Lost

Just some suggestions :) I really like the way that the deck plays out, though. It seems like it's very versatile. Lots of bad trades in the early game pays off with massive card advantage late game.

Dream Twist expensive? 1 mana ;). I like the mill aspect of this deck. Really helps to get as many damage dealing instants into my grave fast.

I like Go for the Throat , but I'm not sure what I would take out.

I will playtest it with your changes and see what I think ;).

Thanks for the comments and always +1 if you like :).

I'm not great with red decks... but is there a reason you have Shock instead of Lightning Bolt ?

I'll playtest in a bit and see if I come up with any other comments

Thanks for the comments :).

Take out ALL your mill. It is not a mill deck and mill isn't particularly viable. Maybe add some draw so that you dont end up top decking later in the game as this looks like a control deck. Over all pretty good job.

Would u mind having a look at my deck and letting me know what you think. I was aiming for a similar theme to your deck but it turned out very different.

Would Young Pyromancer be better than Talrand?

Isn't Seething Song banned in modern?

This deck is super old haha. I haven't updated it in years.

Penga, Yes Seething Song is banned, but Desperate Ritual isn't. And just a suggestion, if you want more of a burn feel to the deck, maybe Lava Spike

small combo piece: Tap a red source, play Lava Spike, while that is on the stack, tap a red source and one of any to splice Desperate Ritual

Basically makes casting 2 spells, free
