Fling would be awesome for all these guys since they are going to die anyway.

Brighthearth Banneret lowers nova chaser to 3cmc doesnt stack on top of each other unfortunately

i think your running to many creatures, since you got a tutor Flamekin Harbinger you dont need to run 4 copies of Liege of the Tangle running some bolts would be beneficial along with some Apostle's Blessing

Nova Chaser + Flamekin Harbinger is a good combo. Use the Harbinger to tutor for nova, champion the Harbinger, when nova dies you trigger your Harbinger. Then repeat.

i feel like you could have also touched on "changeling" creatures/spells. [mistform ultimus is not the only card that is all creature types at all times, but a new player reading your article might think it is. i also disagree with the idea that non-creature cards with the "tribal" type are "redundant, and add text for no reasonable gain". a Flamekin Harbinger can tutor a Rebellion of the Flamekin and a Haakon, Stromgald Scourge can repeatedly play the same Nameless Inversion in the same turn.

Yeah it's in the Maybeboard so the playset I just bought doesn't go to waste when it hopefully gets unbanned :(

Thanks Wizards.

Flamekin Harbinger is a great tutor on a 1/1 body but I haven't been super impressed with it in playtesting. I've found pushing the aggro with Delvers is a bit more with the flavour of the deck. It's still up in the air though. Thanks for the +1 :)

An interesting option I've seen in a few other decks is Flamekin Harbinger, which lets you draw into a Kiln Fiend, effectively being Kiln Fiend 5-8. I'd also suggest taking Gitaxian Probe out of the maybeboard since it just got banned from modern.

id + 2 Distortion Strike and - 2 Stormchaser Mage as theres plenty of evasion in the deck and Stormchaser Mage is the weakest creature by a long way. maybe Flamekin Harbinger might be good as a tutor for Kiln Fiend to make the deck a little more consitant

Having a turn one play is very important in modern. I suggest Flamekin Harbinger. It contests the board on turn one and can tutor your stronger elementals.

So ou appear to be going for red/green landfall.

First of all, as a general rule, you shouldn't have more than two of a single legendary permanent in your deck. So that cuts one Mina and an Omnath. Second, can I recommend cutting Atarka, because you do not have any other dragons. Continuing with the landfall idea, maybe streamline more towards elementals, including cards like Satyr Nyx-Smith, Flamekin Bladewhirl, or Flamekin Harbinger for a tutor. I have a deck like this, except if focuses solely on abusing Omnath, Locus of Rage's abilities. My decklist is basically this;

Omnath, Locus of Rage x2

Flamekin Harbinger x4

Scourge of Skola Vale x3 --sacrifice is fun with Omnath

Generator Servant x3 -- Ramp

Pyretic Ritual x4 -- More Ramp

Heartlash Cinder x3 -- Later Game Push

Bloodbriar x2 -- Death Boosts

Rot Shambler x3 -- See Above

Explore x4 -- Ramp

Abundance x2 -- Land Search

Sylvan Scrying x3 -- Fetchland Search

Attune with Aether x3 -- Land Search

Blighted Woodland x3 -- double search

Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse x6 -- Cheap Fetchlands, can be replaced by more expensive ones if you want and don't have a budget

Myriad Landscape x4 -- Fun searching

Thawing Glaciers x3 -- and we thought the free search wasn't over yet :(

Assorted Basics x19 -- They are the fuel of the deck
