SB: 3 [MBS] Crush
SB: 3 [SOM] Arc Trail
SB: 2 [SOM] Volition Reins
SB: 2 [ZEN] Spell Pierce

battelsphere, wurmcoil and mindslaver are the heavy cards of the deck, which there's no need to play them on the 6th round, it's easy for the deck to control the game more and more to prepare the game for them. i guess that jace's ultimate is also a winning contition and it's not hard to boost him ( at least that happened a lot with me as i tested it). 2 shatter main deck for swords of anything like that ( i think they are needed in main)

Now about the sb, 1 extra mindslaver and wurmcoil to use them regarding the situation, more counters or more removals when we need them and 2 volition reins for more fun Wink

Sphere of the Suns and Shatter seem rather useless in this deck. Cut those for more Into the Roil and Slagstorm. Try Koth of the Hammer instead of Chandra Nalaar to see which one fits better. Add another giant monster since you have Treasure Mage to search for them; I advise Steel Hellkite or Platinum Emperion. Ratchet Bomb is worth testing too.

Good luck! Mr. Green

To be playing Red and Blue in current t2 and to not be using a Destructive Force template, or a pyromancer one seems kind of pointless with how powerful Splintertwin combo is, it wouldnt be a stretch to throw it into the sideboard at least.

As you are already playing Sphere of the Suns, one Destructive Force would not hurt your plan at all. I would say that you look really light on removal. I would work something like this.

4 Lightning Bolt
3 Into the Roil
3 Slagstorm
1 Destructive Force
1 Red Sun's Zenith or Burst Lightning

Shatter is meh. I would find something a little better. Into the Core would be a good main deck one shot. This is a control deck. You have to think card advantage or game ending effects. If you can get both then you are good.

On a side note one Caged Sun would be a cool tutor target.

It is a suggested starting point for a list.

// Deck file for Magic Workstation (http://www.magicworkstation.com)

// Lands
6 [ROE] Island (2)
6 [ROE] Mountain (2)
4 [ZEN] Scalding Tarn
3 [SOM] Darkslick Shores
3 [SOM] Blackcleave Cliffs
2 [WWK] Creeping Tar Pit

// Creatures
4 [SOM] Argent Sphinx
2 [MBS] Treasure Mage
1 [SOM] Wurmcoil Engine
1 [SOM] Myr Battlesphere

// Spells
4 [M11] Lightning Bolt
4 [SOM] Stoic Rebuttal
3 [FNM] Everflowing Chalice
3 [MBS] Sphere of the Suns
3 [ZEN] Into the Roil
3 [MBS] Slagstorm
3 [MBS] Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas
3 [WWK] Jace, the Mind Sculptor
1 [M11] Destructive Force
1 [MBS] Red Sun's Zenith

// Sideboard
SB: 4 [M11] Duress
SB: 4 [SOM] Kuldotha Phoenix
SB: 2 [M11] Flashfreeze
SB: 1 [ROE] All Is Dust
SB: 1 [MBS] Into the Core
SB: 1 [SOM] Mindslaver
SB: 2 [SOM] Etched Champion

I am going to say it now. The single All is Dust is for Gideon Jura. If this guy hit the board you are in trouble. Argent Sphinx is a sub for Rainbow Efreet. I am still not sold on the Treasure Mage. I think that Mana Leak or Spell Pierce would be better. Flashfreeze is meh. Into the Core was pretty good though. Etched Champion before Destructive Force is awsome. I am also looking for some room in the 75 for Tumble Magnet and Contagion Clasp/Engine
