Deck is built around general winning by burn.
The control is just on the side for card drawn and keeping stuff i can't burn off the board.
I would very much appreciate help; 5 cards too many in the deck, along with any criticisms or tips.
When 3-1 at FNM
Dropped guttersinpe on an empty board turn three. Burn and counterspell secured that game
Slaughtered by WR humans, especialy when Hellrider hit the board. Needed more small board removal
Deathtouch GB deck with fight. i won without playing creatures, it's bombs being dropped late ran into counterspell
Against WG populate. I was mana flooded and hit 12 land. he was only on 4 manaDropped electromancer turn 13, turn 13/14/15, dummped hand to win.
He hit perfect mana and after 15min he won with 2 8/8 gardians
Added 2 Electrickery to deal with lots of little things
I think you should run 4 Mizzium Mortars probably. Especially with Goblin Electromancer . It's either spot or mass removal, depending how far along you are. Oh but I guess it can't target players like other burn. Your call then. I think the Cyclonic Rift s in the sideboard is good. +1
Jace, Architect of Thought , seems to me like he is a bit weak, four mana for a couple of draw.
Against Zombies, his ultimate actually sucks, control i would prefer heaps of burn, straight to the face, and delver well, i burn him
There just seems like boardwipe or spot removal is easier, because Guttersnipe gets another 2 damage though.
I'll concider him, thankyou for commenting :D
You use Jace, Architect of Thought for his second -2 and for some control against creatures. Essentially, you're paying 4 for two mini- Fact or Fiction s. It hardly ever does not go in your favor, as long as you know what you need from the three cards, just pick one and take it.
I like the list as it is. I don't think you need to add Jace personally. I think Tamiyo is better in this case for her +1. Jace's might be more beneficial against something like Zombies where they are all 1/x and 2/x creatures and his ability pretty much neuters them and he comes down early enough to hopefully make a difference. Otherwise I like Tamiyo better. I personally don't believe PW = winning especially when you are just trying to burn the opponent's face off.
LOVE burn! I hope this deck is successful!
I think Talrand is actually a little against the flow of your deck, you may want to think about removing him, adding a guttersnipe, and dropping Flames of the firebrand (there are cheaper more effective burn spells), Pitching needle, along with the negate and the 2 dissipate's. Your moon sage would probably be a lot more useful in an Azorius deck, tap control is also a little out of the synergy loop. You have plenty of counters, the dissipate costing 2 blue mana is a bit of a nuisance.
