Great idea, flash backs to Reflect Bounder and Magic Cylinder in Yugioh. XD

But most of those creatures are low in power, I can get a 4 damage using Heartfire that also sacrifices a creature that can hurt the target opponent instead of just creatures too. 5 damage if I sacrifice Footlight Fiend instead (I haven't replaced this card out with any haste creatures because of its versatility, it can get 2 1/1 creatures out of the board or when it dies, it can also damage the opponent, giving an extra synergy for Chandra's Spitfire .

I like the idea of Thrill of Possibility to make the deck more consistent, but I'm not sure what to give up.

Cavalcade of Calamity will be a game-winning card in this deck, because Scorch Spitter has power 1, Scampering Scorcher will trigger Cavalcade 3 times, and Chandra's Spitfire will trigger Cavalcade of Calamity , and then, the damage of cavalcade will give him +3/+0.

Also, you can add Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , because is very powerful in red decks with Cavalcade of Calamity . For example, if you have Torbran and Cavalcade, your Scorch Spitter will deal 9 damage. (1+2 of the combat damage, 1+2 of the Scorch Spitter trigger, and 1+2 of the Cavalcade of Calamity trigger)

MoonHollow124: Thanks for the suggestion! I tried using Gingerbrute previously, but never found a need for the extra life. The reason I excluded it is that it is colorless, and won’t get the boost from The Flame of Keld .

Snivy__: Thanks for the suggestion! While Wild Slash is mostly better than Shock , the fact that ferocious only activates from a boosted Chandra's Spitfire and its $5 price tag will keep it out of the deck for now.

Update: After a lot of playtesting on MTG Arena i added 1 copy of Cavalcade of Calamity . You just want to have it. I cut one copy of Embercleave and cut Experimental Frenzy completely. Too much of 4 Mana drops. To Heartfire you can only sacrafice chandras elements and therefor you need chandra. You want to make shure to have 4 damage on your hand without any compromise. Chandra's Spitfire is nice but there is no place for it and its ab bit to slow. I chose Embercleave over Chandra's Spitfire .

With consistent access to 1/1 what not Heartfire instead of Slaying Fire . Some of those 1/1's you have to sacrifice anyway. I understand stand it's only a one Mana difference but it's worth considering. Also would try to find a way to main board Chandra's Spitfire .

You can take a leaf from standard and use Cavalcade of Calamity to push with smaller power creatures, which buffs Chandra's Spitfire by ALOT!

Nice! Thanks for the feedback, DragonZ! I agree, lightning bolt will boost the deck, but also increase the budget in 70%. I was trying to build a super budget and competitive deck, and the main force here is the Chandra's Spitfire + Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh + Thermo-Alchemist combo.

Claim the Firstborn is kind of a trump card. For instance, i can use it in my Electrostatic Field only to activate the direct damage effect and raise the power of Chandra's Spitfire . Or i can use to gain control of the opponent creature, atack him with it and them destroy it with a Shock . Or if a opponent is blocking Chandra's Spitfire with a Reach or Flying, i can unblock the passage.

I didn't know Monastery Swiftspear , it's really cool, I'll try!
