Stardragon on Ral's Pet Drakes

2 days ago

multimedia thxs i thought Drake Haven was blue and green for some reason so i never considered it but I did add it and added Looting cards to help it go off and added Flux Channeler to as well for your right and will help both Viral Drake and Ral go off faster.

Icbrgr yes it a great beater in addition to Crackling Drake and Enigma Drake and was put in thxs for the advice

ScionsStillLive Crackling Drake was already added one the first ones i added but thxs for trying to help anyways if you have more ideas don't hesitate to share them

What route are you trying to take with this because if you are trying the Guttersnipe / Electrostatic Field route i'd honestly say you neeed far less creatures and far more instants and sorcs. I'd max at 16 creatures for that strat maybe less well to be fair whatever strat you are running with this it looks like you need less creatures. I'd say Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Crackling Drake have too high cmc to run in a 20 land deck. I'd say Nivix Cyclops is also too slow for the strat you are trying. If you want to run a prowess style thing though Slip Through Space is worth thinking about.

I'm not really hyped on Spark Double in this deck. Right now I think this deck needs some more early-mid board-presence, and the only thing worth making a four-mana copy with spark double is Niv-Mizzet, Parun .

Goblin Electromancer would work (although it's not strictly board-presence). Crackling Drake is good, but let's see if we can't find something 1-2 mana cheaper. Runaway Steam-Kin is a good option. Out of those three I might go with Goblin Electromancer to get your spells out cheaper and faster, but I wouldn't scoff at you picking Runaway Steam-Kin .

fffume and BigSaltyJohn: In theory we could just mainboard Niv-Mizzet, Parun and not use Crackling Drake or Wee Dragonauts . There are enough instants and sorceries in the deck to justify that change. That would give two open slots in the sideboard for another type of counterspell like Ionize or other circumstantial spells like Aether Gust .

fffume, I know it's not an "official" suggestion, you are spot on the Crackling Drake . I think I was just overly focused on the Wizard theme that I forgot about other options. On top of it you also get a card draw out of it, which is something this deck likes to have, card advantage. I'm going to test that out myself. Thanks dude.

JW398 on Twiddle Storm (Arcane Storm)

Garchomp98, while I do like the idea of Pteramander . The problem in putting it in the sideboard is it doesn't help against the unique and large amount of hate that can be boarded in against me. I say unique because I have the typical storm problems but I also have to deal with some of the cards that are typically brought in against Tron. This is due to how central Lotus Field is to Twiddle. psionictemplar would be correct in the sense I would still take Crackling Drake over Pteramander simply because I do not have to worry about graveyard hate.

As for putting it in the main deck, Pteramander doesn't do anything to help the combo. However, I will try it in a casual environment (for as long as storm in casual can last) and get back to you. Thanks for the input!

You're pretty close to having a standard deck here. Opt would be nice for that, and more Crackling Drake s and Saheeli, Sublime Artificer s

If you wanna go the opposite way and make a modern deck, get Lightning Bolt and Serum Visions

Modern is pretty pushed right now, though, so I suggest you stick with standard with this card pool
