I'm really up on Feasting Troll King . It can be out consistently on turn three. With cards like Fling and Insatiable Appetite , the opponent can be dead on turn four or five no problem.

Turbo Troll King

you might want to look at Fling and Thud being able to attack with Lightning Skelemental and then sac it to do the damage again. It's sneakier than Assault Strobe . While Temur Battle Rage and Uncaged Fury are at least at instant speed,they again might make your creatures a bigger target to remove if they see it swinging with double strike. You probably want some removal or discard Launch Party is a great way to take advantage of your guys that sac at end of turn anyways. Hellspark Elemental is a no brainer as well. Your better off dropping Shriekmaw for out right removal or burn and while Nova Chaser is cool I wouldn't run 4 they curve out for how fast this deck could play. Ideally you'd probably bump the number of Flamekin Harbinger and drop your Nova Chaser to 1-2 the harbinger tutors your nova chaser. I'd also dump the sundial for some combination of the elemental friendly Chandra's that are around there's like 4-5 to choose from.

That Kari Zev's Expertise is a gold mine! Perfect to grab a creature and Fling for free!! I didn't even know about that card!

Ghalta, Primal Hunger does seem like a good bet. Flinging for 12 is so tasty!!

I really like the idea of Sol Ring , as they serve as an untap for Traxos, as well.

Once it rotates, and if it drops in price, I'd like to include Carnage Tyrant , especially for multiplayer games.

I guess I'm not sure which balance of creatures to run.

Do I need Fleetwheel Cruiser ? Maybe Ghalta instead of Fleetwheel?

Thanks for your comments, Tharion and Mullac!

kingofcramers on Storm blitz

I really like the idea of ramping, but izzet blitz usually relies more on the good blue cantrips than rituals. Unfortunately the deck lost a ton of power without Gitaxian Probe and Gush . I'd check out a list like this one https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/pauper-izzet-blitz-79641#paper just to start, for inspiration. I do wonder what to do with all the good red rituals though, they could be good in this kind of deck with Fling or some other payoff

Hellkite Charger could be a worthy include to grab later in the game if you find yourself ever having 10+ mana available to repeat combat. Also Warstorm Surge and Berserkers' Onslaught are generally pretty nice when you're using beefy creatures!

Since your creatures will often be getting exiled at some point anyway, Thud and Fling (and other similar sacrifice-creature value) could be good. Also, since you're running a tutor on a stick as a commander, you could probably cut a few dragons to add more support cards in the deck since you will usually be able to get whatever creature you need when you need it.

nice I've been experimenting a lot with the Near-Death Experience Wall of Blood combo. the best deck Ii have made so far is a mardu deck that uses Faithless Looting to dig and takes advantage of Fling to get a t3 kill sometimes with Wall of Blood . Some cards to consider for you are Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Darksteel Myr is good with Worship . Here is an old version of my deck. It has proven to be somewhat competitive actually. it has got 2-1 at local modern tournaments several times. (the newer version) that version isn't updated yet. so cool to find someone else who saw this combo. nobody I know has heard of Wall of Blood . its super underrated in my opinion even not in a combo deck it sort of works like a Royal Assassin or Spear of Heliod .

gdemay on Inside Out Dragon Assault

I figured two Goldnight Castigator and then one Fling and have the rest be solid dragons that can go for 10 damage. However you could go all out with 4x Goldnight Castigator and play 4x Inside Out and 4x Fling and play ramp but then it is a boom or bust strategy.
