fuster on When a MTG player drops a mixtape

Cekrit doesn't Grim Lavamancer look like he finna drop the hottest mixtape of 2017?

Ah kk makes sense! Sounds like it will be a fun time. In that case I would recommend going down on the path to exiles and up on the bolts and fatal pushes. Path just gives your opponent an advantage at this point while bolt and fatal push are going to be hard removal with no down side. Grim Lavamancer seems like he would do REALLY well here. Being able to take out creatures and ping your opponent is a lot of utility. Just a few other creatures that come to mind... Rhys the Redeemed and Student of Warfare. Have fun with the tournament!

Creature should be...

4x Monastery Swiftspear4x Goblin Guide4x Eidolon of the Great Revel

and optionally 1-2 Grim Lavamancer

Cut any cards with a CMC over 2.

Your goal is to get them dead by turn 4. Eidolon hurts you, but it also hurts them and ideally you will be faster with a flurry of burn spells. Plus it hits for 2.

Torpor Orb and Pyromancers are bad because they are slow or do not add burn.

Searing Blaze over Searing Blood for sure, and you also have stuff like Grim Lavamancer as more budget friendly options or Skullcrack.

I did some mirror playtests against your build and Grim Lavamancer gets really pesky if he sticks around too long. Nice deck!

MrKrabs on Discard for the Discard God.

Oh wow, I really love all the synergy in this. Almost every card choice feels really on theme.

A few thoughts on cards to help with discarding:
Daretti, Scrap Savant is good at both discarding, seeing more cards, and helping you get back artifacts you may have discarded.
Chandra, Flamecaller is another good one for emptying and refilling your hand - I'm not sure that it's significantly better than Chandra Ablaze all of the time, but it certainly seems like an upgrade.
Tormenting Voice and/or Cathartic Reunion also seem like strong options.

Separately, if you're already running Outpost Siege, how do you feel about Chandra, Torch of Defiance or Chandra, Pyromaster? Both get you additional card advantage, and Torch can also help ramp you if needed.

Is Grim Lavamancer too greedy? What about Furnace of Rath or Dictate of the Twin Gods?

Eidolon is good if your opponents are playing tight decks with a lot of cheap spells, if it's more casual it can end up doing more damage to you than it does to your opponents. Searing Blaze is a good card, if you have fetchlands it's probably better than Searing Blood and if you don't it's worse. If you do happen to own fetchlands, Grim Lavamancer is a good card to go with them.

Kyle_Munzy on Let it Burn

With the fetchlands in modern and other activated abilities Harsh Mentor acts like extra copies of Eidolon of the Great Revel. At the very least I think it's better than Keldon Marauders and probably Grim Lavamancer because you're not running fetches. If you are interested in Harsh Mentor I would recommend you wait a while until it's price inevitably drops.
