Seems nice , i would remove the 2 Thunderous Wrath and put another Cyclonic rift . Remove the 3 Epic Experiment and the 3 dual casting. if you have money put 4 bonfire of the damned or at least 2. everything else seems good
I think Mizzium Mortars is a good substitute for Bonfire of the Damned . What about the other cards, would you not substitute those in? I feel like the charms should be included but I don't know what to put in.
Cut the fog banks, volcanic geysers, dual castings and epic experiments (do nothings and slow X spells). Run the full 4 guttersnipes, they just do so much work. Add some artful dodge s, with a snipe in play its 4 damage for 2 blue and a clear path for a couple attackers or a big buff for the elementals. If you still want an X spell run devil's play .
I currently run a deck for Standard, Modern, Commander and Legacy. For standard, I have a typical, horribly budget Rakdos Deck Wins. For Modern, I have a very lovable mono-green, resistant to removal type of deck. For Legacy, I'm trying too hard to break Pyromancer Ascension . For Commander/EDH, I'm running The Mimeoplasm . A little morals thing about me, I like winning through combos, but not infinitely.
However quiet, I am a Christian, so feel free to tell me you are too, it's always a relief.
get rid of volcanic geyser and thunderous wrath and epic experiment and dual casting. bith not so good. run a full 4 guttersnipes and add cheap spells like artful dodge and curisoity or amybe even a few counter spells. run izzet charm this card is so handy. spot removal or counterspell. such a good card.
add delver. u r runnign a little sorcery and instant heavy anyway.
talrand is over-hyped. he gets taken out by the most played removal spell in standard. aka pillar of flame . he is way to fragile. i have played to many decks with him and i hate him. i would even run rewind over him.
runechanterspike beefs up ur creatures and gives them a very helpful defensive attribute. aka first strike.
I agree with what was said above althouh a one of thunderous wrath might not be bad if you have room. I've closed many a game with miracled wraths. Think twice is also pretty nice with guttersnipe to get some more card draw. Another consideration is silent departure. The flashback is handy with guttersnipe and clears out blockers for nivmagus. Bounce is still relevent.
Do you guys see this is as a quick hit deck or a slow deck? The fog bank and X cards were there because I saw this more of a slow deck. Also, what is your opinion on flashback (Snapcaster) vs Pike vs Elemental. I think Pike should be dropped because I can get + 2 per instant/sorcery in the graveyard. However, if I try to make my Elemental bigger, it reduces my effectiveness of Snapcaster. Additional concerns:
1) Adding Delver? From what I here, sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you dont. Id like to try to make the deck more consistent? If you think there is strong incentive to do it, I can.
3) Artful Dodges and Curiosity are excellent combo cards with Guttersnipe. Will definitely have to add them. 'll include 1 Thunderous Wrath . however, what is wrong with Epic Experiment . I feel like it would combo extremely well with Guttersnipe . Do it for 6-7 mana, get 2 sorceries and instants that would do a minimum of 4 damage + i can draw 2 cards (with Curiosity).
4) I feel as though Cancel is greater than Syncopate , only worth 1 mana more and it will counter everything.
5) If I take out Talrand, do you feel as though I have viable win options?
