Deck Description

Fun little idea I had based on Thermo-Alchemist.

Would like to play Rift Bolt over Shard Volley, but Shard Volley costs {R} if I draw it off a draw spell, where Rift Bolt costs {2}{R}.

Mono red because of Chandra and Cinder Pyromancer.

Heavy instant / sorcery because of Thermo-Alchemist.

How to Play

Creatures tap for damage.
Creatures untap for spells.
So, tap creatures for damage and play spells to untap them.

I use something very much like this. Have a look at
I'm thinking about adding that Guttersnipe!

Going UR opens up space for some interesting blue cards:

Curiosity on any of the Ping'ers is good for keeping the hand full.
Goblin Electromancer allows for some more expensive instants and sorceries.
Izzet Charm gives some nice versatility .

Guttersnipe would be a good replacement for Cinder Pyromancer if we go UR.

Very interesting. Curiosity and Sigil of Sleep? Nasty.

Sadly, Sigil of Sleep isn't Modern legal. The next cheapest (mana wise) modern legal blue aura card that does the same is Ophidian Eye, which, thankfully, has flash. Going green gets you Keen Sense, which is a direct colour shift of Curiosity.

Too good to be true. Very cool build.

I love that more people are building more ping-decks today! I love Thermo-Alchemist!
