Chandra's Phoenix Discussion

Thanks so much for all of the input! I have considered all opinions and this, I think, will help the best for my set up:
How does that look in comparison from what I had? Hopefully this will be much faster and more effective.

Chandra's Phoenix can be removed. Thousand Winds can be replaced by Cyclonic Rift. Disciple of the Ring can be removed. Ember Swallower should certainly be removed.Kheru Spellsnatcher can be replaced by Counterspell. Opaline Unicorn can be removed. Tyrant of Discord isn't necessary to be played in the deck. Battlefield Thaumaturge isn't that great in the deck. Bloodfire would be better in a more creature based deck.Aggressive Mining should be removed. Conjured Currency can be removed.

As neat of a card as AEther Membrane is, I say sideboard it for a playset of Exquisite Firecraft. This lets you hose combo/control decks that run very little creatures as it can't be countered under a normal situation in this deck. Cut Tuktuk the Explorer, every deck in modern can kill or even exile his first form, the 5/5 that results isn't much of a payoff from turn 3. I say in place of him and two copies of Chandra's Phoenix run a playset of Spark Elemental. He is a Lightning Bolt slapped onto a creature. Since you're going on a mixed creature build of a burn deck Monastery Swiftspear is a powerful staple of burn decks that can get out of control. Brute Force optionally can be replaced with Titan's Strength for card advantage. Temur Battle Rage or Assault Strobe can combo with monastery swiftspear to pull off some turn 3-4 kills.

Looks good, too bad Chandra's Phoenix isn't legal in this format.
Awesome deck though, +1

Honestly, you probably need some kind of power booster for the phoenixes. A lot of them are weak and somewhat mana heavy to bring back. Flamewake Phoenix I would try to put to four because that is the easiest one to continuously recur. I like Chandra's Phoenix because she is also somewhat easy to bring back, especially if you replace Pyroclasm with Earthquake. I'm not so sure I like Skred in here since it can only damage creatures. Maybe just a whole bunch of burn spells in its place? Also, while I have a deep love for Obsidian Fireheart (he is one of my favorite all time arts), he seems pretty out of place here. For that mana, maybe consider Flame-Wreathed Phoenix since you'll either get the return ability or a 5/5 beater.

I would think Remand is better than Mana Leak in a tempo burn deck, you don't need to completely stop your opponent, just delay them till you burn them out, and Remand replaces itself for more gas. Chandra's Phoenix is pretty bad... Stormchaser Mage is probably better if you're looking for fliers, less mana. Usually bigger attack, and most importantly, doesn't die to Pyroclasm.

Looks solid! Although the planeswalkers are a bit expensive for the deck.Goblin Guide won't be reprinted for a long time, sir, but the deck still is around tier 2 or 3 without it.What was your reasoning with Temur Battle Rage and Chandra's Phoenix? They're good, but I'm not sure if they make the cut.

I'm sure you've thought of Lightning Bolt.
Oh and I could never leave out my homegirl Monastery Swiftspear.
