COUGARMEAT on Primal burn

Just gonna spitball. Soul-Scar Mage and Rampaging Ferocidon are decent and maybe even Firebrand Archer if you want some creatures. Chandra, Torch of Defiance is pretty versitile. Shock is good against pesky early aggro and can go to the face once you stabilize. I mentioned Inferno Jet already. Dunno, I think I like Shock over the other options I mentioned.

I like this :) I think Firebrand Archer, Harsh Mentor and Viashino Heretic can all add some excellent value to your deck. Other cards I would definitely consider would be Smash to Smithereens, Sizzle and Insult.

Happy gaming!

Thanks for looking at the deck! I'm going to write up a league report on Reddit soon after going 5-0 yesterday with this deck (after multiple 4-1's!). Let me answer your questions about deck choices, though.

Flame Rift is one of the best cards in the deck for most Game 1's. All burn decks want to race, but this deck can chain together many one-drop instants before the kill turn as well. Conversely, it's one of the first cards to get sided out when I need more interaction and I'm on the draw for Game 2.

For creatures, I have had some combination of Thermo-Alchemist, Firebrand Archer, and Keldon Marauders in many iterations of the deck. IMO, if the opponent has any form of removal in their maindeck, your creature dies on the first turn it's out, so I wanted the card with the most upside if left unchecked. I won LOTS of games with a single attack from Firebrand Archer (along with 3-4 triggers) making the difference. Also, since I'm running Seal of Fire, I like the Archer over Thermo.

Plus, you don't need to burn someone to necessarily win here, you could theoretically use the Young Pyromancer, Firebrand Archer, or Thermo-Alchemist

Thanks for the suggestions Von.Banamaor, you certainly put forward some interesting points. Unfortunately the issue with Simian Spirit Guide is that it involves exiling in order to get 1 mana, while Rite of Flame replaces itself in terms of mana and counts as a non-creature spell cast for Firebrand Archer, Thermo-Alchemist, and Monastery Swiftspear. A lot of the time this difference will only mean 1 or 2 damage more dealt but a lot of the time it's actually worth it. In summary I feel like it's a lot down to personal preference, as some people may prefer to have Simian as a backup 2/2 creature. Also in regards to Lava Spike, I found in previous iterations of the deck that I needed the straight damage to my opponent's face and that Spike provided that dome damage. Perhaps for greater board interaction I could put a few copies of Shock in the sideboard?Also it's great to hear that my list helped give inspiration for your own decklist, Renegade Tactics can be really sweet for making Swiftspear more evasive in tough board-states.

Thank You! I just didn't put them in, because I thought that Enigma Drake and Firebrand Archer weren't very many creatures... or enough creatures to use Crash Through on. I now realize that giving trample to a 10 power Enigma Drake Is very powerful. almost as powerful as drawing you that card. I will add...

No Firebrand Archer? Maybe a Braid of Fire for free mana?
