zaneanderman I think that would be fair. Gamble is very good and I liked Price of Glory as sort of a way to deter people from interacting. I guess it can kinda both ways. They both add different things to the deck. I think the correct move would be to sub in Gamble and when going for a win to have things like Burnout Red Elemental Blast or Pyroblast .

Adding some creatures for a mix of some aggro with the burn is usually good (e.g. Monastery Swiftspear ). Eidolon of the Great Revel is also a powerhouse. Browbeat is bad, if you want to run draw Light Up the Stage is much better, or maybe Magmatic Insight to get rid of your dead lands.

Incinerate and Lightning Strike suck, I'd go up to 4x Searing Blaze and 4x Rift Bolt instead.

For the sideboard, Red Elemental Blast (and Pyroblast ) are both not legal in modern. Chain Reaction is two expensive and late game, Curse of the Pierced Heart is way too slow and Reverberate is usually not great either. I'm not too well versed in burn sideboards so I won't give any suggestions here -- you can probably find plenty of good suggestions on google.

Great deck. Tried it by proxy. It's faster then expected. The Magmaquake as instant boardwipe is rare, comes unexpected. It's great. I also included Arcbond ; also intant boardwipe. Because it works great.

And I replaced the planeswalker with a Pyroblast / Red Elemental Blast to counter the counter from the Dragonstorm

Hey, nice version of Gishath on a budget, well done.

Fierce Empath can tutor for any 6 CMC or higher Dino. Mwonvuli Beast Tracker can get any Dino with trample such as Quartzwood or Ghalta. Duelist's Heritage and Goring Ceratops is repeatable double strike. It's good with Gishath's combat damage to a player trigger since it triggers an additional time.

Court of Bounty can be repeatable draw with the monarch as well as repeatable cheat a Dino or a land onto the battlefield from your hand. Red Elemental Blast can counter an opponent's counterspell. Austere Command is a versatile board wipe that destroys other than creatures.

Battlefield Forge , Cragcrown Pathway  Flip and Branchloft Pathway  Flip are budget land upgrades.

If interested in any of these suggestions than I offer more advice of cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Nice deck, you have good card sense with a high budget.

Grand Abolisher and Conqueror's Flail are helpful to protect Wyleth on your turn to safely equip and attack. Puresteel Paladin is repeatable draw with equips as well as can be 0 cost equip. If adding Puresteel than adding a few artifact lands: Ancient Den and Great Furnace helps to activate metalcraft. Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard can get Stoneforge or another support creature.

Could replace the Diamonds with Signets: Arcane Signet and Boros Signet since they make either color and ETB untapped. Mox Opal and Mox Amber are more powerful mana rocks for more speed. Aggravated Assault combos with Sword of Feast and Famine for infinite attacks. Bloodforged Battle-Axe and Mask of Memory are good equips especially with double strike.

Spectator Seating is a Boros dual land upgrade. Bloodstained Mire and Windswept Heath are two more Fetch lands. Deflecting Swat and Flawless Maneuver can protect Wyleth for no mana cost. Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast are helpful to counter an opponent's counterspell. Generous Gift and Chaos Warp are removal spell upgrades. Jeska's Will is a powerful ritual.

If interested in any of these suggestions then I offer more advice of cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

I've never had a problem pronouncing Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar. It's a good way to show off, or sound like you're speaking gibberish.

Twisting Shard

Artifact

Spells you control with changeling can't be countered.

Permanents with changeling you control have ", Discard a card: This permanent becomes a copy of target permanent with changeling in your graveyard until end of turn."


Create one of a mirrored pair of cards, like blue / Red Elemental Blast or Hand of Cruelty / honor . Bonus points if it's green.

Hey, good upgrades of the precon: Ral, Reversal, Reiterate, Veyran, Dockside, Storm-Kiln, Amulet, Thrill and Manamorphose :)

Because you're playing Veyran, consider Krark, the Thumbless ? He almost made my Kalamax budget version that isn't playing Veyran. He's amazing with Veyran, giving you more flips, more chances to copy the spell you cast which triggers Veyran more.

Since you have Dockside then consider taking more advantage of it's power? Dockside combos with Snap + Eternal Witness for infinite mana and infinite cast of Dockside/Snap/Witness. Snap and Witness are good cards by themselves. Snap also combos with Kalamax + Dualcaster Mage + Storm-Kiln Artist for infinite mana, infinite copy and infinite casts of Dualcaster.

Reiterate combos with Turnabout for infinite mana, infinite copy and infinite casts of Reiterate with buyback. Kalamax helps to reduce the cost of this combo by first copying Turnabout.

The precon has zero counterspells. You've added Reinterpret , but consider a few more lower CMC counterspells such as Counterspell , Stubborn Denial and Red Elemental Blast ? Tapped Kalamax copies an instant counterspell which is extra protection for Kalamax or for your spell to resolve. Making some room for Counterspells is important if you're trying to assemble combos that could win you the game.


The mana curve is a little high at 3.4. Some cards in the precon that in my opinion could be upgraded with lower CMC cards:

  • Wort, the Raidmother
  • Sunbird's Invocation
  • Strength of the Tajuru
  • Slice in Twain
  • Prophetic Bolt
  • Commander's Sphere

Other cards that could be upgraded:

  • Halimar Depths
  • Mossfire Valley
  • Solemn Simulacrum
  • Crackling Drake
  • Uvilda, Dean of Perfection
  • Skullwinder
  • Supplant Form
  • Desertion
  • Brain in a Jar

I offer more advice in another comment. Good luck with your deck.
