Try Curiosity / Firebrand Archer storm instead, it is cheaper and is a real list!

guttersnipe is just terrible in modern.. 3 mana that could easily have just been another bolt, and there is a million better options than shock, most of which are fairly cheap.

some shock replacements include:

Wild Slash

Flame Slash

Searing Blaze

Skullcrack

Shard Volley

Deflecting Palm

Collateral Damage

Gut Shot

Molten Rain

Chained to the Rocks

guttersnipe could be replaced by plenty of lower cmc creatures not seen in regular burn decks

Young Pyromancer

Firebrand Archer

Kiln Fiend

Goblin Arsonist / Goblin Grenade

Mogg Fanatic

Keldon Marauders

Seeker of the Way

Soul-Scar Mage

Abbot of Keral Keep

sideboard you could and should run more artfact and enchantment hate like

Fragmentize

Wear / Tear

Smash to Smithereens

or even just the very basics in Smelt and Demystify

There is a couple of suggestions I would make. Sunscorched Desert triggers Quest for Pure Flame and may allow you to activate it earlier. Firebrand Archer is another alternative to Thermo-Alchemist , only difference being it can deal 2 dmg to an unprotected opponent.

You're wrong about Vexing Devil : it is a bolt, mate. You could try Spark Elemental , again it works like a bolt. And speaking about bolts, you may consider Skewer the Critics .

I'm sure you could find something better than Browbeat , three cards for three mana isn't the most effective way to get fresh cards. Faithless Looting is great and would combo with Fiery Temper . Bomat Courier is also an option.

Hi PartyJ! I dunno how to tag your name so I came here to post my reply. First of all, thank you for appreciating my deck. Its my favorite because of how unique the mechanic and how unpopular the commander is. I think it has less than 200 decks in edhrec. Hallar can surprise you in so many ways.

Regarding my versions of Hallar, these were my experiences.

My first few iterations of him was putting so much +1/+1 counters and heavily protected him with hexproof stuff. The problem I encountered with this build was too much protection and not much kickers.

So I readjusted him to adding more kicker spells and less protection. But the problem here was, some kicker spells are simply inefficient and triggering Hallar turn by turn was quite putting a target on you.

After plenty more iterations, I settled on my current build now, I'm still trying out Panharmonicon though. My main goal is to approach multiple wincons at the same time, which is not very hard with Hallar as your commander.

Wincon 1: To burn opponents at the same time through, Chandra's Ignition and/or multiple cheap kicker spells while having a bunch of counters on Hallar.

Wincon 2: Poison opponents using Grafted Exoskeleton on Hallar (can work with the ignition too), Firebrand Archer , Squallmonger , or Zhur-Taa Druid .

Wincon 3: Deal commander damage through having trample and lots of counters. Poison works here too.

Things to note though :

  • Properly time your instant kickers so that you can somehow make the most of Hallar before a boardwipe or a spot removal.
  • Have ways to draw more cards, my favorites are Keen Sense and Snake Umbra because you can put them on creatures in "wincon 2" and still draw.

I hope I was able to help you with your future Hallar Deck. :)

Nice deck you have here! But one more True-Faith Censer snuck into you list :).

Firebrand Archer can act as a second Fireweaver.

A good addition would be Lightning Bolt . It's pauper legal and a very strong card in general. Chain Lightning and Rift Bolt are also pretty good. Firebrand Archer may be a good replacement for Goblin Arsonist or Footlight Fiend as a repeatable pinger.

With the Combo of playing 0 mana artifacts and Retraction Helix / Banishing Knack to get infinity Prowess through Chakram Retriever s untap ability you could also include Tandem Lookout to Soulbond it with either Reckless Fireweaver , Nettle Drone , Firebrand Archer or Chakram Slinger .

That way you'd get a good draw engine that can draw you into your combo. But the Deck seams good as it is. Just a tought that might be worth a try.

I like the overall build here. its pretty cool. But could I suggest maybe running Guttersnipe , or Firebrand Archer over the Bloodfire Enforcers?

Just seems to me as a better option over-all
