Distortion Strike

Sorcery

Target creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn and is unblockable this turn.

Rebound (If you cast this spell from your hand, exile it as it resolves. At the beginning of your next upkeep, you may cast this card from exile without paying its mana cost.)

Just some quick notes!

Draw power: Mystery Key, Mask of Memory

Flyers/unblck.: Smuggler's Copter, Zephyr Boots

Support/Ramp: Aether Spellbomb, Prophetic Prism, Forsaken Monument, Horn of Greed, Howling Mine

I'd also comment that Distortion Strike, when well placed could really sink a game for one, if not two players.

If you haven't considered Eldrazi Mimic, that'd be a really nasty card to pair up with your line up.

For retrieval, Scrap Trawler could really do you a favor if artifact retrieval is important for you.

12-Post has been a favorite concept of mine for awhile and I always see mono green Tron as my rival. I think Blue-Post is a pretty cool concept!

If you wanted to use things like Tinker and Show and Tell, things could really get zaney in your group setting.

Hope the feedback helps!

Try Distortion Strike over Desperate Lunge: it is cheaper and therefore can be cast a turn earlier or in combination with other pumpspells and unblockable is a lot stronger than flying. A big Plus: it has Rebound.

Slip Through Space and Distortion Strike could work well with the theme you got if your opponent gets rid of your artifacts.

70% of your one drops are green. The only one drop creature is green. you need more green mana!

If you are trying to kill on turn 2-4 then you could probably have

4x Yavimaya Coast 1x Pendelhaven

Adding 2 coast and a Pendelhaven would still keep you under $50. I also feel you are light on creatures. You really need a creature to stick and opponent to not have removal, and if they do you need to be able to protect it or reload. I think you need 19 mana and 12 creatures, so maybe add 2 more Ichorclaw Myr.

I don't think you need Distortion Strike, it's sorcery speed and it's useless on blighted agent, and only +1 power pales to everything else in your deck. Definitely sticks out as the weakest card in deck. Also, islands are really iffy when you really need extra green for all the pump. Having your second land be an island with a elf on board ready to swing and groundswell/krosa/mutagenic growth in hand on turn two feels really bad. I'd add: 2x Ichorclaw Myr 2x Yavimaya Coast 1x Pendelhaven

Take out: 3x Distortion Strike 2x Island

Sideboard: Depending on meta, cheap options that would be great for this would be

Nature's Claim Kill saga's or ensnaring brigde or spellskite or whatever other annoying thing that you need to remove.

Test of Talents or Spell Pierce (would probably add back one island and take out forest if adding more blue)

Autumn's Veil (more protect)

Wild Defiance (for grindy removal heavy long games)

Gut Shot (kill monkeys) and/or Dismember

Interesting concept! I've seen some DS lists playing Sprite Dragon before but I haven't seen one this aggressive before.

First off, Stormchaser Mage doesn't seem that good. There are usually better options for that slot in modern like Stormwing Entity. However, here I think you should definitely add a full playset of Scourge of the Skyclaves. Scourge is like a more aggressive shadow that works well in builds that lower the opponent's life as fast as their own (like this one).

Temur Battle Rage is a classic GDS card that can steal wins out of nowhere and adds additional reach to the deck, I'd definitely consider it as a 2 of here.

Serum Visions and Sign in Blood feel too slow.

I personally prefer Distortion Strike over Slip Through Space. Slip replaces itself but distortion is a 2 for 1 and the second cast doesn't cost mana, making it more mana efficient - and it also buffs the creatures.

Dragon's Rage Channeler + Mishra's Bauble package may work here since its being included in both UR blitz decks and DS decks, and this deck is kind of like a marriage between the two. A 3/3 flier for 1 mana and a 0 mana noncreature spell to trigger prowess could probably help a lot.

For the manabase, I feel like 18 is enough. If you add the baubles, which turn the deck into a 56 card deck, 17-18 is definitely the sweet spot. I suggest you take out checklands like Drowned Catacomb and Sulfur Falls. I'd add 2 Fiery Islets to help guard against flooding out. They can also lower your life total in a pinch to buff shadow and scourge.

Grubbernaut Thanks for the feedback! I want to stick with UG, I like what U brings to the table for this deck. I think I'll cut some of my bounce spells but I like having the utility of them. One of the guys in my play group got out Ulamog's Crusher turn two with Exhume. I was able to bounce that back to his hand and he couldn't recast it and allowed me to pump my creature and swing for the win. I'll probably remove a few of them for Distortion Strike in its place though. I was also thinking of adding a couple Lotus Petal to help ramp my pump spells turn 2.

In pauper, I recommend going mono G and subbing Blight Mamba for Blighted Agent. You definitely want Vines of Vastwood, Rancor, and I'm also partial to Land Grant for free thinning. You could also consider Seal of Strength, as you can cast it any time and then use it when needed.

If you're going to stay UG, definitely add Brainstorm, Ponder, and Ash Barrens. Cut all bounce spells; you don't care about your opponent's creatures, especially if you're going with U for unblockable spells like Distortion Strike.

Cheers!
