Pioneer UBR (Grixis)



This is a fairly standard (if such a thing exists for Pioneer) Phoenix list, with one big difference, I've tried Treasure Cruise and found myself wishing it was Finale of Promise. Pioneer doesn't have an easy way to cheat on spell counts, the Finale should let you cast 3 spells in a single turn, enough to trigger Arclight Phoenix and significantly tick down Thing in the Ice. The synergy between Lightning Axe and Fiery Temper is nice and is another way to get good value and a 2 spell count. I added Void Snare as 1 mana sorcery which is a generic answer for a turn, but was tempted by Spite of Mogis.
