Hello aunru943,

Please see the below suggestions:

Dragonlord's Servant for dragon ramp.

Draconic Roar Shock to a creature and Lava Spike to the dome.

Crucible of Fire strongest lord effect that i know of.

Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer if you can afford him because his treasure ability can get you your dragon on turn 3.

Taurean Mauler: Acts as a 3 mana dragon that powers up as your opponent plays spells and powers up with Crucible of Fire.

Metallic Mimic a shapeshifter that powers up your dragons.

Realmwalker helps you play your dragons more consistently - if you want to play gruul.

Hope this helps.

I was considering Skullcrack or Lava Spike for more burn. Might consider some heavier creature removal spells like Anger of the Gods and Flame Slash After some test games with my friends, I definitely could use more on the board removal and target player burn.

I’m going to assume you’ve weighed the pros/cons and decided against it, but just in case it went unnoticed Lava Spike would be effective here. It’s about the same monetary price as Lightning Bolt, and costs less to cast than Lightning Strike but can only hit Players/Planeswalkers.

The best way to power up this deck would probably be to find lower CMC alternatives to Lightning Strike and Searing Spear , plus something a little stronger than Shock . Lava Spike and Rift Bolt are some popular options. With Thermo-Alchemist being an easy source of damage on demand, spectacle cards like Skewer the Critics and Light Up the Stage would be my personal choices. You also have a lot of lands for burn, so maybe Shard Volley or Searing Blaze could be on the table. Finally, any cantrip becomes a lot better with all of your creatures caring about them. In mono-red, the best options would probably be Manamorphose , Tormenting Voice / Cathartic Reunion , or Needle Drop .

Looks like good fun! I question Goblin Balloon Brigade , but simultaneously, you'll be the only one in your city who runs it!

Lava Spike and Shivan Meteor seem a bit out of place though?

Genderfluidia Its basically a free instant or sorcery trigger which lets me draw a card aswell. Ive had a turn where I had 4 mana and played Manamorphose into Finale of Promise to bring back the manamorphose and a Lava Spike which drew me 2 cards and gave me enough mana to play Needle Drop and a bolt. All while I had a Thermo-Alchemist pinging. Trust me it seems wierd but can combo with a lot of cards in the deck.

All cards function according to their Oracle text on, which matches the Game Night printing. This is a slight functional change to the card, as you can now hit multiple planeswalkers controlled by the same player, or a planeswalker and their controller. As sergiodelrio mentioned, this was a change implemented when they got rid of the planeswalker redirection rule in Dominaria. New cards that deal damage to "target player" (like Firesong and Sunspeaker) can only hit a player, but older cards (like Lava Spike) have been updated to hit either, to maintain functionality from before the rules update.

I feel like the Madness shennanigans with Thrill of Possibility/Faithless Looting are cute, at best. There are SO many better draw spells in (the premium of which being Sign in Blood because it can double as a game-ending Shock). I would also trade-out an Alms of the Vein for a 4th Sovereign's Bite.

Some other cards to consider to replace Fiery Temper with: Vicious Rumors, Dash Hopes, Geth's Verdict, Lava Spike, Chain Lightning, Rift Bolt..

Finally, I wonder if you were aware of Piranha Marsh & Sunscorched Desert as well..
