Pre-banning evaluations but I think it's still all highly relevant:

So basically no cards except Monastery Mentor. Even that one's pretty steep at 3 cmc and no hand fueling from delve cantrips, I don't think it'll be good enough in a format of turn 4 kills. Maybe a 1-2 of in an existing Pyromancer deck?

Ugin is an obvious include in Tron but I'm not sure how much it'll actually improve the deck. Costing 8 isn't really a problem, as it's a slow win condition/board wiper, but I don't see it boosting Tron's position in the metagame since it still has to actually find Tron and then play something that costs 7+ and this doesn't help that. I didn't see Tron losing very frequently when having both 7+ mana and successfully casting a Karn, but I also am not that experienced playing the deck.

The other 3 cards are all kinda Meh.
