RambIe on Rippling Dragon's Approach

I have to back enpc on this one izzet is a superior choice
I ran 15 copys of Dragon's Approach in my deck and had no problems chaining off by utilizing cards like Niv-Mizzet, Parun & Archmage Emeritus
as for Thrumming Stone odd's of 1 in 4 of a 100 card deck is 25 cards. but things never run that smooth so in a mono red deck that needs this to be a guaranteed hit i would run odds of 1 in 3 (33 cards) then stack by odds with cards like Dragon's Rage Channeler & Burning Prophet

Given your quantity of instant and sorcery spells, Overwhelming Denial could just be another copy of Counterspell for you. Arcane Denial and Wizard's Retort would also be valid options in the counter slot. Curiosity combos really well with Niv-Mizzet, Parun, if you run a card such as Thassa's Oracle, Laboratory Maniac, or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries this combo will just win you the game. I know it isn't a win via copy shenanigans on the stack, but it is consistent and powerful. Good luck, have fun!

Note: Brainstorm isn't modern legal

Your deck has 20 creatures that have payoff for drawing cards and casting spells, but only 17 actual spells. I would run 16 creatures tops and replace them with more instants/sorceries.

Archmage Ascension synergizes with all your card draw, but it's a complete nonbo with your card draw trigger effects like Chasm Skulker, Niv-Mizzet, Parun, and The Locust God. Also, it's really slow.

I'd also probably cut Kumena's Awakening because a conditional 4-mana draw an extra card each turn isn't that good.

For the spells, Radical Idea is bad. To replace Brainstorm you could maybe run the new cantrip we are getting in MID, Consider. Sinister Sabotage doesn't really cut it in modern, I'd suggest Counterspell, Archmage's Charm, and Spell Pierce. Expressive Iteration might also be good here, although it doesn't draw cards. Maybe Serum Visions.

WhiteLippedWizard333 on Wheely Snakes

Pikobyte I'm going to my LGS today to pick up Xenagos, the Reveler, Minds Aglow, Mass Hysteria, Guardian Augmenter, Whirlpool Warrior, and Spellskite. I think all of these are going to be great additions to this deck for the time being until I can find another Phyrexian Altar to slot in. I have one in Resurrection Insurrection but can't justify pulling out to put into Wheely Snakes just yet, I'd like to playtest with it first. Xenagos will replace Fevered Visions. I feel like the mana advantage that Xenagos will provide outweighs the extra card draw and 2 damage. I rarely play Fevered Visions anyway, I usually get it later in a game and have no need for the forced card draw since I'm usually wheeling by t4 t5 or t6. Minds Aglow will replace Prosperity, because exactly what you said in a previous comment. Mass Hysteria will replace Temur Ascendancy. It's easier to cast, and is the same haste enabler. I only have 4 creatures that would even trigger the 2nd ability of Temur Ascendancy so its gotta go! Guardian Augmenter and Spellskite will replace Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind. The Niv-Mizzets are hard to cast so I find more often than not, I don't cast them because I have a better option in hand that isn't going to cost nearly as much to cast. They are great when they are on the field, but I feel like protection and +2/+2 for Xyris is going to benefit me more often than the Nivs would. Lastly, I think Whirlpool Warrior is going to replace either Psychosis Crawler or Tribute to the Wild. Both are good in their own right. Psychosis crawler can be massive after a wheel or 2 and can put down some serious damage and Tribute to the wild is just fun, especially if an opponent's only artifact or enchantment is a combo or deck engine piece. Thats going to be the hardest cut decision on this round. Thank you again for your suggestions!
