Thing in the Ice
Creature — Horror
Thing in the Ice enters the battlefield with four ice counters on it.
Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, remove an ice counter from Thing in the Ice. Then if it has no ice counters on it, transform it.
Thing in the Ice Discussion

I think a lot of your suggestions are spot-on though. Phoenix is probably a better high-end creature. I'm not sure how many burn spells I want in main, but I'll always be packing at least 2 lava coil for Thing in the Ice Flip and Arclight Phoenix .
My last concern is interacting with planeswalkers, but I figure my best bet is Aether Gust for nissa and broko (short may he reign)

Thanks the__odysseus it is appreciated. So I've run this deck twice now in paper and have run into a few problems. 1st Fatal Push I dont think I have enough to enable revolt on it. I agree its powerful and I play it in modern but I'm not sure its as good in Pioneer. Thing in the Ice Flip has been great with the adventure creatures to bounce them back for replay, and Merfolk Secretkeeper has been great for my Drown in the Loch . I've gone up aginst a decent amount of Oko, Lil Tef, and Narset so holding up Spell Pierce or Drown in the Loch is a must. I also have 4 Noxious Grasp in the side. I defiantly will switch out some things for Dig Through Time and Into the Story . And I'm currently trying to get my hands on Lilly as well as 1 more Jace.

Hi! Your deck looks sweet! I do, however have a few suggestions. I'd drop the mill cards for better removal, and sweepers. Might I suggest 4 Fatal Push and 3 Languish ? Liliana, the Last Hope is a powerful planeswalker that control the board and also be a wincon. Torrential Gearhulk ? Thing in the Ice Flip is much better is a tempo deck, I'd drop those. I'd drop a Treasure Cruise for a Dig Through Time , and add anywhere from 1-3 Into the Story . Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip is probably good enough run three of, and if you draw another one, you just pitch it to itself. Tyrant's Scorn is probably good in this deck, I'd run 2-4. Lastly, either Murderous Rider , Hero's Downfall , or Noxious Grasp would be helpful in the sideboard against your biggest weakness: Mirrors and Oko decks.

First FNM experience: - Didn't have answers to Thing in the Ice Flip - lost me two rounds. Now includes 3 Declaration in Stone and 3 Dromoka's Command - Didn't have enough duals to keep enough hands (led to many mulligans) - Shits all over Oku decks - Deafening Silence is just as good as I hoped vs. combo and phoenix decks - Thoughtseize t1, game 1 is a bitch. Might have to consider leylines in the main, if every deck in my local meta ends up being B/x/x thoughtseize decks

Electrostatic Field would be a nice addition here, Goblin Electromancer , Dynavolt Tower , Mizzix of the Izmagnus , Thing in the Ice Flip, Young Pyromancer , Mirari , and Melek, Izzet Paragon . Just a few suggestions to help the storm brewing

After some testing I think you could do with some Turn Aside in your Main or Side.
It also shuts down an Opponent's Arclight Phoenix
I see that we have ignored the fact that you have Tome Scour so you can target yourself.
I think you could get a bit more value from discarding cards by adding some that have ... (think brain think) ... the Madness mechanic. Fiery Temper and Insolent Neonate might be worth a look. Both of those might work better than Tome Scour
Let me know if any of that helps, or I have completely misunderstood what you are trying to do.
PS. You have chosen the category "Unknown" for your deck instead of "Pioneer". That means none of the cards I have suggested are recognised for the Unknown format.
