I was just working on a Pyro-mill deck and saw a lot of value in my interaction and thought this.

Of course, someone else did, too.

This needs updated. This is my goal... maybe Monastery Mentor for the win. Sedgemoor Witch if I go into black.

-1 Underground Sea is asking for trouble to cast the key black cards. This type of deck can struggle against Wasteland + Null Rod decks, relying on Mox Opal and 1 Underground Sea is not where you want to be.

-Thassa's Oracle does not belong in the deck whatsoever and neither does Noxious Revival. You are already packing Tendrils of Agony and Time Vault which are much more suited to the deck. Noxious Revival is just worse than Snapcaster Mage especially in a deck with Paradoxical Outcome

-Seat of the Synod is usually only played to make Thoughtcast / Thought Monitor viable. It makes the deck super soft to Null Rod effects.

-Urza, Lord High Artificier is okayish but worse than Monastery Mentor or Tinker>Sphinx of the Steel Wind. Also, Urza's Bauble is pretty bad in Vintage.

Heya! Just wanted to try Feather out as a Commander and your deck seems like a ton of fun to play! Love the thought process and work you've done with this primer! I got some questions if you wouldnt mind (which ARE'NT about either Sunforger or Aurelia's Fury xD)? I do have a Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard which I feel kinda interested to add into the deck for tutoring key creatures like Storm-Kiln Artist, Monastery Mentor and other juicy stuff. Would it be a bad idea slotting in either of those two instead for Captain Ripley Vance and/or Velomachus Lorehold? Still I haven't tried the deck out at all yet, how do you feel those two cards play-out for you atm?

Cheers!

Yeah, still got quite a bit of playtesting to do, so any suggestions are welcome right now. I've considered running smallpox and ive considered playing with the amount of creatures since the playtest results have been... inconsistent so far. Bone Shards would mostly be used to sac tokens made by Sedgemoor Witch (or Seasoned Pyromancer or Monastery Mentor when they were in this list). lots of moving parts though, I agree, and something I am trying to streamline

Mystical Tutor and Vampiric Tutor can go a long way in this deck as they allow you to manipulate the top of your library.

Fetchlands and shocklands are in quite a reasonable price range now and can help smooth out your land base as well, it’s usually pretty good to have some “free” shuffle effects. Or if that isn’t an option, at least Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are quite helpful for that as well.

A couple more big mana extra turn cards like Time Stretch could help.

I would for sure at least remove Golden Ratio as this card will almost always be a dead card since you have so few creatures and Blatant Thievery will be just a corner case for it.

Jace is ok here, but something like Saheeli, Sublime Artificer would be better as you’ll be casting a ton of non-creature spells and making a lot of tokens. Even Monastery Mentor can also help with that as well.

Hopefully this gives you some ideas to go with the deck if you want to keep it running. Good luck.

Chandra's Incinerator is basically a one-sided board wipe

Young Pyromancer one of the best token generators ever printed, Mogg War Marshal isn't as good but still can be three creatures for two mana with reanimator synergy. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame gives temporary token but they still get the job done considering they are sac fodder.

Oketra's Monument , Monastery Mentor , Hero of Precinct One , Sedgemoor Witch , and Desecrated Tomb give back a bit of your commanders cost. Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder generates 4 tokens every time you cast your commander since it counts as a creature spell with 4 cmc.

Zulaport Cutthroat and Cruel Celebrant are mini purphoros in this deck

Village Rites is just a good value card draw, same with Grim Haruspex .

As the title says I have a Gatecrash Sacred Foundry and I wanna trade for either 2x Soul-Scar Mage or 4x Monastery Swiftspear or 2x TSR Monastery Swiftspear .

I also have a Monastery Mentor I could trade. Hit me up with any offers.

Going by TCGplayer Market the trades are within $1 of each other.
