Grisbane on Torbran, Thane of Boom Boom

Neheb, the Eternal for Demanding Dragon . Just a better card. Strong ramp on a body that almost always does damage. Also Fork in this deck does the same thing as Reverberate . Also Increasing Vengeance is about the same thing but can be cast again from graveyard. Chandra, Torch of Defiance is a far stronger planeswalker than Jaya at a cheaper cost. Chaos Warp is good general purpose spot removal. Firebrand Archer is a weaker guttersnipe, but those effects stack up fast. Thermo-Alchemist is a constantly recurring pinger when using a lot of burn. Walking Ballista because yes, it's a living fireball, what more needs said? Rogue's Passage to help creatures get through. Aetherflux Reservoir think of it as a burn battery, the more burn you fling, the more life you gain. can keep you alive longer, but if your life gets high enough it can win a game. Ruination because you mostly play mountains, and your opponents don't. Devil's Play is a recast able Fireball and also, Fireball , it's a red deck, it has a lot of burn, it's a must recommend.

SuperiorMagicMilk, unfortunately you are incorrect when describing the interaction between Firebrand Archer and a copy spell. Firebrand Archer will only trigger upon a noncreature spell being cast, and a copy of a spell is not cast. Therefore, firebrand archer will only trigger on the first cast of the spell and not any copy. Ral, Storm Conduit works here because the card explicitly states that it pings for one damage whenever a spells is cast OR copied.

You may already know this but a copy of a spell isn't cast (unless the card specifies that it is cast, like Isochron Scepter), so Birgi won't trigger for copies. Makes things like Bonus Round a little less exciting :/ But still cool!

These might interest you: Possibility Storm (both the original spell cast and second spell cast will trigger Birgi), Knowledge Pool (similar to Possibility Storm), Cloudstone Curio, Kobolds of Kher Keep, Crimson Kobolds, Crookshank Kobolds, Anarchist, Priest of Urabrask, Dockside Extortionist, Grinning Ignus, Stolen Strategy, Rite of Flame, Electrostatic Field, Firebrand Archer, Thermo-Alchemist

Eidolon of the Great Revel is going to hurt you so much since all of your cards have 3 cmc or less. Electrostatic Field, Firebrand Archer, Thermo-Alchemist or Guttersnipe can replace the Eidolon so only your opponent will be hurting.

MagicMarc on Razor Burn

I think they were talking about the price of the card being a little steep not the mana costs to play or activate.

The best things about either Grim Lavamancer or Cursed Scroll is that they are repeatable and targetable burn. Either one basically lets you Shock at will with easy requirements to use them.

As already mentioned, it is unlikely that Razor Pendulum will change the outcome of any game you are playing and you have zero control over the damage the card provides. Replacing it with any form of repeatable and targetable burn is a better idea than that card. Especially if you go with the assorted Chandra planeswalkers or any card with an activated burn ability like the lavamancer or scroll.

There is a giant pool of cards better than the razor to help burn decks win games. Stuff like Double Vision, Pyromancer's Gauntlet, Staff of Nin, Thermo-Alchemist, Guttersnipe, Torbran, Thane of Red Fell, Tectonic Giant, and Firebrand Archer and many more. There are a lot of choices depending on the deck and format that are better options than that Razor Pendulum.

Peoni: Thank you so much for the super detailed and thoughtful comment!!!!!!

When I started putting it together I had cards like Firebrand Archer, Electrostatic Field and Guttersnipe together with Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors but then I realized that 1- maybe dealing a lot of non game-ending damage to "each opponent" in a format that seems very political and painting a huge target on my head is not such a great idea and 2- that Purphoros costs a whole lot of money, haha. So I got rid of them, but totally want to add Purphoros in the future as it's just an amazing card.

Isochron Scepter seems amazing here as well! The double masters printing has apparently made it relatively cheap overseas, but for some dumb reason it's still super expensive locally so I don't know if I can afford to add it. But I'll write it down on the maybeboard and definitely add it and all its other combo pieces once I can!

As for rocks, that's some good advice! Shame about Chromatic Lantern, it's a more expensive card I actually own and was excited to actually use it, hahaha. I also have the Bauble, so I'll be sure to add it in!

Agreed on the counters, definitely gonna make that change! Had some of those in earlier but ended up cutting them, though in hindsight they're the ones that should've stayed. I can probably add in spot removal as well (got a Path to Exile lying around as well lol), just gotta figure out what to take out for them!

I'll make those changes tomorrow as it's really late right now, but again, thank you so much for taking the time to comment! These suggestions were incredibly helpful. Building for a format you've never played and without knowing what to expect from other players or from your own deck is tough, hehe.

Also gonna try to look more into infinite combos with Kykar tomorrow, see if I can find other decks that have more of them that I can use!

PS: Definitely gonna add Bishop of Wings and Arcane Adaptation too! And thought it requires an additional mana to get it going, the bishop should also work with Mirror Entity, which makes me happy haha. Mirror Entity is great!
