Warlord's Fury Discussion
2 weeks ago
I like the idea; I'd cut Banefire , Simic Ascendancy , Fists of Flame , Warlord's Fury , and maybe some of the cantrips - you definitely need more creatures to ensure having 1, or preferably 2 in the early game (probably 12ish), and probably want an absolute minimum of 16 lands (or more likely, 18, especially if you use some Canopy lands). I also think Strike it Rich is pretty medium, though probably worth it if you stick with 3 colors.
Some options to consider: Lava Dart , maybe Mutagenic Growth (though it isn't red), and the usual suspects of prowess creatures; cutting blue could let you play white for Clever Lumimancer , though keeping blue for Sprite Dragon would let you stay on-theme with Hardened Scales and counters. Honestly, Dragon is absolutely perfect for this deck.
I think 2 or 3 of any given mana sink will be sufficient, since your main plan will probably be to win via combat damage (and not the mana from Steam Kin), which could be something like Hexdrinker or Fury . Maybe even Pact of the Titan if you want to go all-in; exile it if you're in on Nivmagus, or let it resolve if you have mana from Steam-kin.

How about for drawing power an extra 4x Defiant Strike or 4x Warlord's Fury ? I already have 4x Renegade Tactics , which is incredibly useful. Transmogrify would be best to get my creatures onto the battlefield, yes, but I would have to run like 4x of them just to get the right creature, and not only that, it costs 4 mana. And my combos only cost at most 5 mana, not counting the creature cost, as generally if I draw a creature I'll play it as soon as possible and then use the combo, especially if the creature ETB with summoning sickness, then attacks next turn with damage dealt to it which triggers the combo, or if I'm lucky, it is dealt non-combat damage.
One spell I have for ramp is Sword of the Animist . I know it's not much, but regardless.

Not sure how valuable the one-shot +1 and first strike of feverent strike are to you, but from my perspective it's not worth losing a card. Maybe consider Expedite instead and draw into more steam? If you're looking more for the first strike rather than haste there's Warlord's Fury . Maybe a split even.
Then, looking at dive down, your creatures are quite beefy already, so maybe consider Mizzium Skin .
Overall nice budget deck idea, but maybe a little light on (cheap) creatures. +1 from me

I will never not love playing Thermo-Alchemist in any format.
"Ping everyone for 1"
"Cast Light Up the Stage"
"Untap my alchemist"
"Ping everyone for one again"
"Cast Warlord's Fury from exile"
"Untap my alchemist" ....
If only I could make that my commander. It's a 0/3 Defender, but it single-handedly will kill players <3

BioProfDude, I'll probably wait for a few more comments before editing my deck, but it seems about right. Though I definitely want something that aids my direct damage to face, while pumping up Prowess. I'll replace either Warlord's Fury or Raking Claws. Crash Through's trample is too important, because Soul-Scar Mage can allow my spells to weaken creatures so my damage goes through. Still wonder whether an instant is better. I already have Bonecrusher Giant taking the place of Wild Slash and if damage prevention is that shitty, I can swap in Skullcrack. Lightning Strike allows me to make use of my colorless mana, and is a tad stronger.

I think you want a few more instants in the mix. I'd include Wild Slash and maybe Lightning Strike in place of Warlord's Fury and Crash Through. I know, I know, the card draw, but you also have Light Up the Stage and that should probably go to 4x, probably losing Raking Claws to make room for the two additional copies. Just my two cents, if it's worth even that much. :-)

Improbable Alliance is probably not very good for this deck, since this is an aggressive deck and alliance if for tempo decks, so definitely cut it. Cut Thrill of Possibility because it requires you to have at least two cards in hand and costs two mana, which is bad for a prowess deck. Also cut Flame Sweep and Keep Safe because first of all, 2/3 of your creatures don't have flying and secondly, this is an aggro deck and you should be killing your opponent before you need flame sweep. Keep safe is interesting, but again, it costs 2 mana and is not really an effective counterspell, since it is so situational. Also cut 2 Light Up the Stage and 4 Skewer the Critics because they often dont trigger prowess. You will usually be casting them after combat, which is pretty bad.
So, you cut around 11 cards, what should you replace them with? Well, to start off put two Dreadhorde Arcanist. It is a wizard and will let you recast spells, triggering prowess at the same time. Put in 1 Treasure Cruise. Although it doesn't synergize too well with dreadhorde arcanist, there's a reason why this card got banned in modern. Because you'll be casting so much cheap 1 mana instants/sorceries, this should easiley be a one mana Ancestral Recall . So now there's 8 more cards to replace. Add 4 Crash Through, as it will draw you a card for just 1 mana, triggers prowess and gives your big creatures trample. It's a must include in any pioneer prowess deck. Next, add 2 Warlord's Fury or 1 of that and one The Royal Scions. This depends on personal preference, if you want a late game play, the scions is fine. Personally, I would use just two Warlord's Fury. Finally, put in two Spell Pierce. It is basically keep safe but cheaper and less situational. For example, it can counter key noncreature spells in a combo deck, counter a big planeswalker, counter a board wipe, or just any non creature spell, all of which can not be done by keep safe.
Lastly, the sideboard needs some work. Take out all the cards in the current sideboard. Add two Pithing Needle. It can deal with pretty much any card in the format. 3 Grafdigger's Cage or Tormod's Crypt for some much needed graveyard hate. Remember, all these cards trigger prowess as well! Put 4 Abrade in the sideboard, as it can deal with creatures pretty effectively and can kill artifacts as well. 1 Disdainful Stroke for matchups with more beefy spells. 2 Mystical Dispute because of how overpowered simic and a lot of other blue decks is. 1 Aether Gust because again, simic is really powered (also deals with lots of other cards in pioneer by countering them or bouncing them). For the last 2 cards, add Searing Blood.
