Cut Wraith, bring 4 Monastery Swiftspear instead, as it helps enabling Scourge of the Skyclaves so much. Also, 1-2 Temur Battle Rage are a must as this card can end games so quickly, especially with Scourge. Make Lurrus your companion, trust me, you don't want to randomly draw him in this kinda deck. Your sideboard can still play Ashiok & Engineer. I'm not sold on Fulminator Mage anyways, Cleansing Wildfire or Blood Moon seem better to me, Wildfire is key in Belcher or Oops MU, Blood Moon out of the board can just win you games on the spot (Field of the Dead, Valakut, Tron). Surgical Extraction is another card I wouldn't play, at least not mainboard. There are many matchups where it's just dead and you already have some graveyard hate in the sideboard. Bring your Mishra's Bauble count up to 4 and maybe add 2 Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger in place of the mainboard Lurrus. Last but not least you might wanna try 2 Kozilek's Return in the sideboard, as it helps beating wider strategies (Field of the Dead, Seasoned Pyromancer, Young Pyromancer) or creatures like Auriok Champion that your deck might struggle with otherwise.

Maybe Seasoned Pyromancer over Cathartic Reunion. The effect is similar and pyro makes tokens, which is what this deck seems to be wanting to do.

Hey AT23, I like your deck! I have a few suggestions -

Since you are losing a lot of life from the fetchlands, Thoughtseize, Dark Confidant, Bitterblossom (4 copies may be too many), etc., you could run Death's Shadow as an additional finisher. If you dip more into burn with Bump in the Night, maybe even Scourge of the Skyclaves would work. Shadows would add more late-game power other than Kroxa.

I would also drop the Magus of the Moon and run a full set of Blood Moon. I know you’re trying to run multiple versions of this effect, but you may end up with a lot of dead cards, and the Magus is more subject to removal (Anger of the Gods, etc).

A way to help with dead cards is Seasoned Pyromancer to help cycle through your deck. Street Wraith also helps draw cards if you embrace the life-loss.

Yeah I tried playing a pioneer rakdos pyromancer deck (partly inspired by this deck, although they're pretty different) that sort of leans into the graveyard with Kroxa, Stitcher's Supplier, Village Rites (honestly such a good card, you can even sac a young pyromancer to this in response to removal for 2 cards plus another 1/1), Claim / Fame, and Dreadhorde Arcanist. Losing Seasoned Pyromancer and some other more niche inclusions like Ransack the Lab and Unearth isn't great, but what can you do.

Hi mtgplayer100 !

Thanks for your suggestions ! I added two lands and it seems to be better now.

Seasoned Pyromancer... i love this dude and play him in all my other Rakdos decks in Modern, but i'm not sure here ; it seems to be a nonbo with Ensnaring Bridge. Furthermore, i already have a lot of three drops... As i'm sot sure about Simian Spirit Guide, maybe i will try Spyro instead.

Do you play Prison decks ? How does Seasoned Pyromancer performs for you ?

You should consider Seasoned Pyromancer, the card is really good. A land or two might also be good, as 20 seems like it might not be enough.

Xica on Deck Help with Temur ramp …

5 months ago

As a baseline, ramp decks - especially ones using mana dorks - are extremely vulnerable. They are hated out to an extreme by the "bolt the bird line", on top of loosing to "drwaing wrong half of the deck" even without aid from the opponent.

Frankly you MUST have some justification, that makes that vulnerability be worth it.

To give you an example elves can get away with this due to winning on t3, t4 through 1 creature getting killed.
Ponza can live with the problem as it locking out the opponent from his mana on t2 or latest at t3 makes itbstill worth the sacrifice.

Frankly your list has an uncanny resemblance to the card ponza played in its early days - if you gut the deck by removing all its interactions with lands.
Since then ponza added card selection (in Seasoned Pyromancer), and got some leaner threats to have better chances at casting said threat just in case they cannot ramp.




On top of all these issues, this decks runs "it doesnt do anything" cards.
Electrodominance does exactly NOTHING without suspend cards like Crashing Footfalls, Ancestral Vision, Restore Balance and the like.
Budoka Gardener  Flip is an extreme overpriced Sakura-Tribe Scout for all intents and purposes. Without a metric ton off effects that put lands in to plyy it never flips - i mean numbers like seen in mono green belcher decks.




Then add blue as a 3rd color to allow you to run counterspells in a deck that plans to spend all of its mana on its own turn, thus wont have mana to counter stuff.
Which is why counterspell decks run cards that have extreme low mana cost (have mana after casting it), like Delver of Secrets  Flip, cards with flash so they don't have to commit mana on their own turn to play threats, for example Restoration Angel, or cards that untap lands used to cast them, like Teferi, Hero of Dominaria or Wilderness Reclamation.

And Arcum's Astrolabe is BANNED.
Blood Moon is back, playing 3 colors with a grand total of TWO basic lands is just asking for trouble, attempt at your own peril.





P.s.: Sorry if i sounded harsh, modern is a high power format, with low tolerance for "messing around".

RG Ponza aka. RG midrange is a deck thats very succesful.
RUG delver/monkey grow is a good respectable temur deck running counterspells.

Its possible to have deck that you describe in your deck description, but not by randomly piling together cards.
You MUST consider how your card interact with each other and plan your deck around it to have ANY chance

And you must have a plan to deal with other decks that can be as opressively interactive as 8-rack, or as fast as infect, that will win on turn 2 if you leave it to its own devices.
