Solid idea to build around. I have a similar deck somewhere, but one thing I’ve found is that Instants generally perform better than Sorceries. Less restrictive to cast, opening up opportunities to hold it in reserve after attacking in case your opponent has any tricks up their sleeve. Also gives the option to play them on the defense as you’re blocking, potentially turning the tide.

I recommend Brute Force, Built to Smash (extra benefits for Goldhound), or Dynacharge. Stuff like that.

Hey, glad you liked the build. It's quite a fun one to play.

On your suggestions, I've already looked over every single 1-mana burn spell legal in the format and End the Festivities, Blazing Volley, and Dual Shot are unquestionably the best options to pair with Pestilent Spirit (In that order, too). If I need Instant speed, I don't see a value in Spikefield Hazard when I could just as easily Dual Shot. Mana isn't even close to a struggle in this build as it's all quite low cost, and I already have 4x Goldhound in there just in case things get really dire, so I don't ever see the Land side being used either.

The Neonate isn't bad at all, but I don't know what I'd drop to put her in honestly. My other 1-drop Menace creatures all have pretty well-definited versatility within the build (Goldhounds for mana, Valentin for converting destruction to exile), compared to Card Draw - which while nice - is nowhere near as predictable a benefit overall.

Lastly, I toyed with Rampaging Ferocidon for a while when I first built the deck, but anymore he's just not anywhere near as threatening as other 3-drop creatures. I ended up with Pestilent Spirit as my 3-drop, but I used to run Sonorous Howlbonder, who for all intents and purposes makes large chunks of my deck simply unblockable. So, that's the standard I'm comparing against currently for 3-drops. Figure in the fact that the Ferocidon punishes Creature spells (and I run mostly Creatures myself) and this feels like it'd just be working against my own Lifelink most of the time. I can fill the same overall function with Knight of Dusk's Shadow now; for less mana, and no downsides to me.

I do appreciate the interest and suggestions though, and I'd be happy to hear if you have some additional thoughts that maybe I've overlooked.

Either way, Cheers!

Hello friend! I have some suggestions! I had way too much time today, so here you go.

Relatively cheap, potent, and just perfect upgrades.

This bit is, of course, focused on making as many treasures as your board can bear.

Great, now you have all of these treasures, now what are you going to do with them?

  • Frogmite, Lens Flare, Scale of Chiss-Goria, Tooth of Chiss-Goria, Mycosynth Golem, Slag Strider, Furnace Dragon, and Myr Enforcer are all notable cards you could add, since they pretty much become free after a while, though mostly pretty useless.

  • Forsworn Paladin is pretty good token generation early game, but really shines with the second ability where it can instantly punish anyone blocking or attacking you recklessly.

  • Marionette Master is going to pack a punch.

  • Dargo, the Shipwrecker is super cheap for a 7/5 with trample.

  • Enraged Giant, Freejam Regent, Battle at the Bridge, Saheeli's Directive, Herald of Anguish, and Organic Extinction are all pretty solid additions, since they don’t make you sacrifice anything in exchange for it.

  • Ruthless Technomancer has a million combos with (like Dockside Extortionist+sac outlet) and is just pretty good on its own.

  • Leonin Elder is just one life, but when you’re playing a treasure deck, that one life will definitely add up.

  • Underhanded Designs is a murder or a poke engine, which is very snazzy.

  • Glaze Fiend is pretty scary, considering that it has trample.

  • Dragonspark Reactor could be a bit of removal in your back pocket or your wincon.

  • Arcbound Crusher’s design team didn’t anticipate just how many artifacts I was planning on throwing onto the field.

  • Professional Face-Breaker is just like Grim Hireling, in that it makes treasure tokens, but more importantly, it gives you something else. You get a load of impulse draw, which is really nice when you have loads of mana.

  • Magda, Brazen Outlaw is just an artifact tutor, really. Though, there are plenty of treasure loving dragons you could also fish for. (:

  • Kalain, Reclusive Painter loves treasures, giving everyone big buffs.

  • Swashbuckler Extraordinaire can give anything that might be sensitive to dying double strike for a big final push. That, or just give one big boy double strike.

  • Their Number is Legion gets you lots of life and lots of tokens.

  • Necron Overlord is just a worse Ghirapur, but it’s still gonna hurt.

  • Street Urchin is the same idea as the above.

  • Armix, Filigree Thrasher could be some annoying removal, especially early game.

  • Hellkite Igniter is a big boy that, if left unblocked, could be a one hit kill.

  • Feedback Bolt is a big, powerful spell. To put it simply: ouch.

  • Fain, the Broker can make treasures, can make +1/+1’s, and can make little spooky boys. The best type of boys. Great utility and variety overall.

  • Rain of Riches is big. One cascading spell a turn, whichever one you want? Imagine dropping Feedback Bolt and cascading into Hellkite Igniter.

  • Captain Lannery Storm is innocent… Until you leave her unblocked like a dummy.

  • Concussive Bolt can be an easy kill, letting you get as much damage as you want through.

  • Dispense Justice is just like saying “Fuck your voltron.”

  • It seems you also like having and sacrificing constructs, so here’s a bit to let you do more of that, if you’d prefer to have a construct deck over a treasure token deck.

    • Shared Animosity will give constructs a boost, but there really isn’t a specific theme across creature types aside from that, and your constructs are better used for chump blocking or just turning them into scrap. Ignore this if you’re going for more of a construct tribal sort of thing.

    • Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  Flip is a good card, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think it’s really necessary.

    • Rakdos Charm could be replaced with something better as far as artifact removal or graveyard hate. Nihil Spellbomb would be good graveyard hate and Generous Gift is just a good white staple.

    • Comet Storm is fun, but Crackle with Power is more fun.
