Asmoeus here are some suggestions around what I would do to improve the deck on a budget

Lands

Artifact

  • Look decent. Gilded Lotus does have a high mana cost so would keep an eye on how often you cast it.

Sorcery

  • Remove Creative Technique (with your lower mana curve odds of you revealing something really good is low) > Add Arcane Denial as a good, cheap counter spell
  • Remove Fiery Encore (expensive and requires you to discard a high mana cost card to deal decent damage) > Add Solve the Equation (Tutor for the spell you need)

Creature

  • Remove Charmbreaker Devils (returning spell at random will not often get what you need, and does not have a way to get around blockers) > Add Runaway Steam-Kin (Will help you cast more spells and give you mana)

Other Considerations

Interesting concept! I've seen some DS lists playing Sprite Dragon before but I haven't seen one this aggressive before.

First off, Stormchaser Mage doesn't seem that good. There are usually better options for that slot in modern like Stormwing Entity. However, here I think you should definitely add a full playset of Scourge of the Skyclaves. Scourge is like a more aggressive shadow that works well in builds that lower the opponent's life as fast as their own (like this one).

Temur Battle Rage is a classic GDS card that can steal wins out of nowhere and adds additional reach to the deck, I'd definitely consider it as a 2 of here.

Serum Visions and Sign in Blood feel too slow.

I personally prefer Distortion Strike over Slip Through Space. Slip replaces itself but distortion is a 2 for 1 and the second cast doesn't cost mana, making it more mana efficient - and it also buffs the creatures.

Dragon's Rage Channeler + Mishra's Bauble package may work here since its being included in both UR blitz decks and DS decks, and this deck is kind of like a marriage between the two. A 3/3 flier for 1 mana and a 0 mana noncreature spell to trigger prowess could probably help a lot.

For the manabase, I feel like 18 is enough. If you add the baubles, which turn the deck into a 56 card deck, 17-18 is definitely the sweet spot. I suggest you take out checklands like Drowned Catacomb and Sulfur Falls. I'd add 2 Fiery Islets to help guard against flooding out. They can also lower your life total in a pinch to buff shadow and scourge.

so ive been obsessing over this deck lately and have some things to note and suggest... Lurrus and pyromancer conflict with the companion mechanic... a substitute im filling in is Stormchaser Mage. Otherwise another piece of tech ive been tinkering with is Jeskai Ascendancy instead of lurrus; its neat but i think lurrus is the way to go... Quicken is somthing else im toying with to work with light up/ending and considering Shelter for staving off spot removal/evasion.

I don’t really want it to be a Arclight Phoenix deck, just want my prowess stuff. Plus I would have to add more discard outlets for Phoenix like Chart a Course and such.

The Stormchaser Mage are gonna be replaced with Soul-Scar Mage if I like the format enough to buy them.

I’m currently at 20 lands with the Spikefield Hazard  Flips. And I think Expressive Iteration is too good not to play. It’s even seeing play in Modern.

If I played Izzet Charm it would replace Prismari Command .

I’ll see about fitting some Lightning Strike s in.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Make it 20 land. Add Arclight Phoenix for Stormchaser Mage . Add 4x Lightning Strike for the 2 copies of Spikefield Hazard  Flip and 2 copies of Shock . (You will have 2 copies of shock left over) also add Izzet Charm for Expressive Iteration .

cooknathan on Veyran, Voice of Duality, what …

7 months ago

I'm probably not the only one confused with which triggers Veyran, Voice of Duality works with.

603.1. Triggered abilities have a trigger condition and an effect. They are written as “[When/Whenever/At] [trigger condition or event], [effect]. [Instructions (if any).]”

  1. So cards like Guttersnipe or cards with magecraft clearly work (she triggers her own magecraft), cool, no problem.

  2. There seems to be a consensus that cards with prowess and similar ( Stormchaser Mage , Aetherflux Reservoir , Wavebreak Hippocamp ) also work so long as it triggers with an instant or sorcery and not another card type. Ok, so maybe the permanent's trigger condition does not need to say 'instant' or 'sorcery'.

  3. What about if something like Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind was triggered with a Brainstorm ? Does the permanent's trigger condition need to say 'cast' too? What 'causes' the triggered ability to trigger? Is it the casting or the drawing? Same question with Baral, Chief of Compliance .

  4. What about cards that need an extra cost to trigger Lunar Mystic or Mirari ? Do we (or can we, or can't we) pay the extra cost when Veyran triggers it an additional time?

  5. What about cards like Knowledge Pool or Eye of the Storm which also requires the card to exile?

  6. What about Primal Wellspring or Pyromancer's Goggles do you get two copies?

  7. If Runaway Steam-Kin has two counters and you cast a red instant, does it end up with four counters? Does Aria of Flame or Sphinx-Bone Wand get one or two counters? How about Mizzix of the Izmagnus ?

  8. How does Spellweaver Volute work? DO you get two copies of the same instant?

  9. I think that covers everything. If anyone has any weird edge cases, this might be a good place to post it. Do any of these cards not work for some reason? Sunbird's Invocation , Jori En, Ruin Diver .

Thanks!

I'm not super up on the rules for Pauper EDH but Stormchaser Mage is not listed as Pauper legal on Scryfall, that could be the issue.

Edit: For clarification, what I mean isn't that you can't have an uncommon commander, but that since some variations look to Pauper legality for card usage, that this card not having Pauper legality throws the deck off somehow?

Izzet Over: A Pauper Commander Deck

Hope this is okay to drop here. It's a PEDH based around Stormchaser Mage . If not, just pretend it's a really bad, super budget Adeliz, The Cinderwind deck. Been trying to put the finishing touches outside of lands and was hoping someone could answer one of these for.

  1. What should I cut for Blighted Agent ? I plan on using it as plan B if my command tax becomes too much I was thinking Vodalian Arcanist just because my mana curve is so low and it will be very rare for it to have haste.
  2. Should I cut Fists of the Anvil for another 1-drop +3/+3 type of instant akin to Built to Smash or is that +5/+1 after prowess that devastating?
  3. Anything worth taking out for Inside Out. I just think it's really neat.
  4. Seeing how the deck is so offense-based, does the vigilance from Bladed Bracers matter? Should I focus on evasion such as Vorrac Battlehorns or straight combat like Bonesplitter ?

Thanks for reading. I picked up refining this deck after two years of not looking at it, so getting help with it and then bringing it to code has been a deck building priority for me.
