Exquisite Firecraft Discussion

Exquisite Firecraft is just meant to be an uncounterable finisher against blue b.c when they can't counter my goblins due to Cavern of Souls, they save for my noncreature spells so I board out Atarka's Command for it. There's Sudden Shock as an a cheaper alternative but it's only half the dmg for 1 less red mana. I didn't think it would be enough.

Exquisite Firecraft its to slow as Removal Dismember its faster and kill a crea with a 5 body.

As a Burn for your opponent its ok, but not in your starthand, but on the draw its Thunderous Wrath better.

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.

Lightning Bolt , Exquisite Firecraft , if this is casual i recommend Price of Progress if people are running alot of non basics or Smash to Smithereens if someone is playing alot of artifacts

Elixir of Immortality isn't the best choice for a burn deck...

and Young Pyromancer is usually too slow for it.

Try to use 4-of of Lava Spike and Rift Bolt. Many decks gain some life in modern s well. So i think you should also mainboard Skullcrack.

17 lands is kinda risky too... Try 19 lands. Maybe you'll enjoy using 1 Keldon Megaliths too.

Exquisite Firecraft is nice against counterspells, and Flames of the Blood Hand is another card to block your opponent's lifegain. Flame Javelin can do quite some damage as well.

It's probably better to use 12-14 creatures as well. In the sideboard, Searing Blaze is another card to use against aggro. And Molten Rain can wreck some people's heart ;P

You might enjoy Anger of the Gods better than Volcanic Fallout... although fallout does some damage to your opponent, Anger of the Gods kills many things Fallout doesn't. Plus it is extra powerful VS Dredge. And also, Pyrite Spellbomb can kill one pesky little thing called Kor Firewalker.

Is it designed for duel commander (2 player) or regular commander (3+ players)? As duel commander starts with 20 life now whereas regular starts with 40, different strategies are more viable. There is also a slightly different banlist so some of the cards i would recommend for one are not legal in the other.

Here are some suggestions that hold true for either case.

Burn spells: A lot of the burn spells in the deck at present like Lightning Strike aren't ideal. Instead you should run Lightning Bolt, Flame Javelin, Exquisite Firecraft, Char, Chain Lightning

spot removal: Dreadbore, Terminate, and Murderous Cut kill most creatures. Yes you can use your burn for this but idealy you would rather save burn to hit players directly and bigger creatures can't be killed by damage as easily. Planning on burning your opponent out is a bit more relevant in duel commander but you still need removal for big creatures in either format.

some of my other comments are a bit dependent on which format you want to build for.

Eidolon of the Great Revel is a worthy investment.


Lava Spike

Shard Volley

Lightning Bolt

Rift Bolt


Magma Jet


Exquisite Firecraft

Thunderous Wrath

And Mountain are all cards I run in my burn deck.

Searing Blood and Searing Blaze are popular as well.

already mentioned the expensive guys, but they are what the pros use.

dirty little secret I run Chandra, Pyromaster as well cause she's hot.

If you don't want to play izzet Sin Prodder and Bedlam Reveler worked well for me in mono red burn with reduced madness cost spells like Fiery Temper - winning the only FNM I played the deck in. Top decking burn with sin prodder's ability is always good fun. That deck was from when Exquisite Firecraft was still in standard though.
