Lava Axe Discussion

I usually do not play much red myself so take it with a grain of sand, but I would rather have Lightning Bolt instead of Burst Lightning and definetely Lava Spike instead of Lava Axe: for the same amount of mana you would spend with the cards currently in the deck, you would be able to potentially inflict much more damage.I would also consider having Firebolt: cheap, effective and you can re-cast it from your graveyard if needed.
You haven't mentioned any format, so I assume this deck is for casual play and there are not limits with legal cards, am I correct?

Mine was Mono and scrounged together from cards I had cracked from packs, and picked out of the singles pile at my local shop.
24 Lands (all Mountains), 24 Creatures, and 12 Non-Creature spells, as per online instructions.
The centrepiece was the first card I ever bought, Stormbreath Dragon. It cost me a grand total of AU$15. About US$20.
It also had some copies of Act of Treason, which my friend used to HATE.
It won a few games, despite me missing almost every single trigger!

I like the idea, but I see three main problems.
22 lands is going to lead to stumbles in the early game.
The obvious solution to the first issue is to go up to the full 4 copies of Kitesail Freebooter. I'd also recommend running Siren Stormtamer. It's cheap, evasive, and the ability can be useful to protect your Ferocidons and Freebooters.
For the second issue, I'd recommend running at least 3 copies of Cut / Ribbons. The deck could stand to have a bit more removal anyway and ripping a big Ribbons later one could be a great way to close games out. It would drastically reduce your fizzle rate, too, since it's a lot harder to race a couple of bigger Lava Axes from the graveyard than pings.
For the third, 24 lands should ensure that you can get to your Panharmonicons at a decent rate. You could go with a light Desert package (a few copies of Ifnir Deadlands and Ramunap Ruins) to help ensure you don't flood out.
I'm not sure what to cut, though; that's the rub.

Turtleshell Changeling (replace with 1 Calcite Snapper and 1 Horned Turtle) and Tortoise Formation (replace with 2 Spell Pierce) plus Meandering Towershell (replace with 2 Thriving Turtle) and for better blocking Freed from the Real (replace with 1 Essence Scatter) annnnnnnnd to keep your Azor's Elocutors on the battlefield Darksteel Plate (replace with 2 Island) Also my strat for this deck is: block get out your Azor's Elocutors put the Darksteel Plate on them then block with your turtles so you dont take damage (If you something like a Lava Axe use a counter spell) untell you can automatically win the game. FLAWLESS!!!

Some great Spells-Matter cards are Kiln Fiend, Monastery Swiftspear, Young Pyromancer, Bedlam Reveler and Delver of Secrets Flip. I would suggest cutting down to 10 overall copies of creatures, and you should at least have Monastery Swiftspear.

I have a few other cards that I carry with my Chandras:
- Eager Construct - best Magic card ever made, Scrying beats Flying
- Enlarge - the first piece of art I fell in love with
- Black Cat - the second piece of art I liked
- Runeclaw Bear - the first bear card I ever owned
- Totally Lost - I found this among some junk singles and fell in love with Fblthp
- Switcheroo - I love the entire flavour of this card
- A Buffy Jenny Callendar card, coz she was cool
- A custom Diabolic Tutor card I made with me dressed as Chandra and the LGS owner whispering in my ear (he has long, black hair)
- Storm Crow - you kind of have to
I think I should go back to my project of collecting every copy of Lava Axe that has ever been printed.
I need to complete my Minotaur collection, too. I have all the Creatures, but I need stuff like Didgeridoo.

I didn't hit anything worthwhile, even though I had Lava Axe in the deck, and I've never used her competitively since.
I do have her in a Casual deck that I muck around with at home. She's a lot of fun if you find the right shell for her.
