I find Flamebreak and Viashino Heretic to be very handy in my Neheb deck

Heyyy I upvoted your deck a few days ago but haven't had a chance to comment until now! I like the elemental theme and flavor

You do have a few cards listed that I've never seen before. Flamebreak, Groundbreaker, and Edge of Autumn would be great in a gitrog deck

Last night I updated my omnath deck on here to match the IRL version (link). You should check it out for ideas (and be sure to upvote!). One new card I just added to try out is Mouth / Feed. I just love drawing cards lol

Cheers!

As far as cards you could cut, I would say Terrain Generator, Repercussion, Chandra, Pyrogenius, Breath of Darigaaz, Slagstorm and Flamebreak all seem too low impact. Mana Geyser seems too situational. You could probably cut a lot of the copy effects you have, seems like you have way too many.(I would absolutely NOT cut Pyromancer's Goggles

Maybe cut some of the equipment you have. Your creature count seems low for that much equipment.

Also not sure what the black cards are doing in your sideboard section, or why there are so many duplicates.

Either way, sweet idea. I hope you burn your opponents to ash!!

As someone who is moderately familiar with burn (it's one of my more competitive modern decks), I think I can give you some pointers. Firstly, if you want to reliably cast 4 drops in this deck, you need to run more than 20 lands. You currently have 19, which is enough to guarantee 2 lands on time in most games, but getting 3+ won't be as consistent. This is normally good, since you want as many draw steps as possible to be cheap burn spells. Burn really likes winning the game on turn 4, so if Hazoret can't be reliably cast by then, I'd cut it for more burn spells (the 4th Lava Spike and Lightning Helix would be the first cards to put back this list).

The second big issue is your sideboard, which is understandable considering you say you're new to the deck so wouldn't know what the good/bad matchups are. Fracturing Gust is a good card, but you'll never cast a 5+cmc spell in this deck unless it's something like Bedlam Reveler. Most burn decks splash a single Stomping Ground in order to use Destructive Revelry. You can also use Smash to Smithereens if artifacts are giving you trouble. Guttural Response is never good in a burn deck, because instead of taking up a card in the deck you can just use another burn spell if one of them gets countered, so you don't want to dilute your consistency by adding them. 8.5 tails uses too much mana to be useful in any matchup I can think of. If you're worried about big creatures (something that burn doesn't like to see), Path to Exile and Deflecting Palm are your best bet for the SB. Also I like Flamebreak more than Slagstorm, but I wouldn't want to use either over the few Searing Bloods you already have. It never hurts to have Grave-hate in your SB, so either Relic of Progenitus or Rest in Peace will help in those matches where they're needed.

Third, always use red fetchlands only. Arid Mesas are the best if you want to use a SINGLE basic plains, and I wouldn't run more than 1 plains in a burn deck ever. 8-11 red fetches are good at thinning the deck and filling your GY for Lavamancer. Add 3 Inspiring Vantage, 3 Sacred Foundry, 1 Stomping Ground, and enough Mountains and you're set.

Hope some of that helps. Let me know if you need any further explaining on the card choices. Good Luck!

RazortoothMtg: Honestly, I don't know why Strionic Resonator was in the list. Out it goes! I also really like Flamebreak for its mana-to-effect ratio, but it got cut for more draw ;) Thank you for the help, I appreciate it!

Skulloelegy: Glad to help! :)

n0bunga: Same to you man! Trinket Mage is now in - still looking for a slot for Trophy Mage, but she'll find her way into the list eventually! :) And Lightning Storm would be a hilarious win-con, I might have to try that.

Marcs7: Thanks! I'll definitely try to include that - Blasting Station also goes infinite with Murder of Crows (which has its own utility in the deck). If you like the deck, you're welcome to give a +1 ;)

teferiofzhalfir: Shared Animosity has been consistently fantastic in this deck haha. Nothing quite like The Locust God into Shared Animosity and Wheel of Fortune, draw 7 and swing for 49. And I'm always nervous to use Coat of Arms in case I go up against a tribal deck, but I'll look for a slot :)

Zimmers_0: It's super fun so far (though I've only goldfished so far). It isn't my strongest combo deck, but it's very fun and can explode out of nowhere.

My basic assessment is that The Locust God is extremely powerful, even moreso than it appears - but it doesn't have any inherent protection, and it's very expensive at 6 mana.

If I had the money for the "real" mana rocks like Mox Diamond and Mana Crypt I think I could make it into a major threat. Until then, it will be a janky, fun combo deck that murders people with unholy plagues of locusts MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Hey! Nice deck, definite +1 from me as I always love seeing Mass Polymorph in a deck. You reminded me of a couple cards I missed for my deck, like Ashnod's Altar and Psychosis Crawler, and some stuff I didn't even think about by playing those tribal cards (Shared Animosity) and Windreader Sphinx. What's the purpose of Strionic Resonator? Am I missing something big? I would replace it with Coat of Arms. I would also replace Flamebreak with Earthquake or something of it's ilk. Do you have any suggestions for my list?
