Reckless Impulse


Exile the top two cards of your library. Until the end of your next turn, you may play those cards.

Underrated commanders. Very fun.

Passionate Archaeologist works for all spells, so perhaps if you want to add more draw later you could consider Visions of Phyrexia, Outpost Siege, and Urabrask, Heretic Praetor. Green has tons of draw these days, but having a few effects that impulse-draw might be worth it. Reckless Impulse and Wrenn's Resolve are very efficient too.

Spiteful Banditry - ramp and a mini-wrath. Seems pretty good

Gimli, Counter of Kills - has the potential to deal certain opponents a lot of damage. Good for board wipes. Is Dwarf

Fiery Inscription - strong instant/sorcery synergy!

Erebor Flamesmith - some more bonus damage. Is dwarf

Fear, Fire, Foes! - decent multiplicative damage.

Display of Power - strong copier, if you're looking for more

Wrenn's Resolve and Reckless Impulse - quality cheap impulse-draw in Red. Doesn't get too much better than this for it's cost. Well worth noting

Nahiri's Warcrafting - weird removal/impulse-draw hybrid. Worth noting

Into the Fire - another modal damager/card selector. Seems all right

Invasion of Karsus  Flip - mini wrath that turns into an instant/sorcery payoff. Not terrible

Invasion of Regatha  Flip - mini Torbran!

Invasion of Kaldheim  Flip - pretty decent card advantage on both sides, plus damage. Well worth noting

Chandra, Hope's Beacon - probably too difficult to defend planeswalkers in this deck, but this one has all the synergy

Bloodfeather Phoenix - probably doesnt fit the deck perfectly, but it has the synergy. Better in 1v1

Curse of Opulence - very strong ramp, can get some heat off of you

DemonDragonJ: Yeah I'm guessing it's because it makes most artifacts tokens die, namely Incubators.

I'm disproportionally dissapointed that they didn't use the phyrexian transformation cards for more humor, e.g. my white-red Devil idea; most of them don't change that much in personality. The could have instead e.g. had Chrome Host Hulk  Flip been more like Voracious Reader  Flip

So uh Phyrexian Archivist is just a reprint with an added creature type, could have done some kind of twist.

Ephara, Ever-Sheltering: calling it now, the THB Demigods will be the new cycle of mono-colored Gods.

Polukranos Reborn  Flip: one of the more fun usages of the psi-symbol omen in the art

Botanical Brawler: kinda weird flavor that this works well with Incubate.

Wrenn's Resolve: yesss, I'm happy that Reckless Impulse got a functional reprint already

Dance with Calamity: kinda red Ad Nauseam?

Go for the line. I hadn't responded before because I don't know enough about God of War to judge it on source material faithfulness, but as a card, it looks good. I think he should either draw one card or Reckless Impulse at end of combat, because drawing two extra cards a turn would be too much at four mana and a hard push at five.

You are running a lot of cards that make you draw and discard cards. I think that Squee, Goblin Nabob would fit in this deck well. You can discard him and get him back in your upkeep and you can do it over and over again.
In the recent sets WoTC printed a couple of really good impulse draw cards in red like March of Reckless Joy, Reckless Impulse, Light Up the Stage or Rob the Archives. If you have no way to use cards in your graveyard then these 4 are in my opinion better than all versions of Thrill of Possibility you play. If you want to keep playing all versions of Thrill of Possibility then I'd consider adding some cards that you can cast from your graveyard like for example Mishra's Research Desk. Endless Atlas could draw you lots of cards.
You're running 32 creatures so Hazoret's Monument will save you more mana than any mana rock and will also let you filter your hand like crazy. Lastly, Skullclamp, Idol of Oblivion and Terrain Generator seem to have good synergies with all the mountains you have and all the 1/1 tokens this deck can produce. Heraldic Banner - for just 1 more mana you get a mana rock and an anthem for your go wide strategy.
Hope you find some of the suggestions helpful.

Having a very low budget and no Rakdos dual lands, consider mono red instead of Rakdos? Just red, 20x Mountains, can be more aggressive because you will not have problems casting spells since all cards will be red.

Build around 4x Electrostatic Infantry? It's your best red creature with trample who grows as you cast creature removal spells and pump spells. 4x Lightning Strike is your best creature removal spell since it can also go at opponent life. 4x Reckless Impulse is good draw with Infantry, gives you more chances to cast instants or sorceries.

One drops with haste help a lot to be aggressive. 4x Reinforced Ronin and 4x Rabbit Battery give you more chances to cast one of these turn one. Battery then can be a source of pump + haste for other creatures for one mana. Ronin in your hand can be draw if it's no longer useful as an attacker.

Lightning Strike and Flame-Blessed Bolt or Play with Fire work well with Furious Bellow to kill a much bigger creature since at first strike combat damage step opponent's blocking creature takes damage then do 2 or 3 more damage to the creature, most likely killing the creature while in combat. These are instant spells, you can attack with your creature, if opponent blocks it then cast Bellow and at first strike damage step cast Strike or Bolt or Fire at the blocking creature.

Radha's Firebrand can help to do damage from attacking by making an opponent creature unable to block. Firebrand is good with Rabbit Battery since it doesn't have haste. You don't have Firebrand in your current deck, but if you can get them they can help to be aggressive.

So I’ve played allot of budget blitz and this is how’d I build it on a budget

18 Mountain

4 Dragon's Rage Channeler

4 Monastery Swiftspear

4 Soul-Scar Mage

4 Electrostatic Infantry

4 Lightning Bolt

4 Lava Dart

4 Mutagenic Growth

4 Tarfire

4 Manamorphose

4 Light Up the Stage

1 Reckless Impulse

3 Crash Through

This will give you a really fast, consistent deck that’ll win you games. It definitely has the power to take down fnm with some good draws. Without fast/shock lands playing 2 colors is just to risky for an agro deck.

Everything is in the $5 budget, Manamorphose and soul scar are borderline but they’re just such a solid cards.

I hope it does well for you! If you decide to stick with your list, I’d definitely add dart, Darcy, tarfire and light up the stage. It’ll increase the overall power level considerably
