Lava Axe Discussion

Yes sir, I meant Lightning Axe, not even sure how I came up with Lava Axe. Haha.. Are you looking for a flyer that does direct damage or just a good flyer?

Thanks for the help.

I assume you meant Lightning Axe, not Lava Axe. I still can't stop doing that myself. :[

I have taken a look and added a few more cards to my Maybeboard. I've added Goldnight Castigator for the time being to my Maybeboard as well. I'm probably going to have to wait for Kaladesh, but I'd like a good flyer to replace Thunderbreak Regent. Goldnight isn't exactly what I want, but it may do the job.

Tormenting Voice is a good one, it also allows for card draw. You can replace Exquisite Firecraft with Lava Axe as it allows for discard. Here is my madness deck maybe some of the cards can help you out. Kalitas and his Bloodsucking Madness. Also don't overlook Collective Defiance's discard ability. You can target yourself to discard your entire hand and play your madness cards off the discard.

Going to play with it here in a bit. I will test it with Falkenrath Gorger, Lava Axe and Stensia Masquerade.

Keep in mind that most 1st-graders have no concept of 'X' and its significance as a variable. Stream of Life and Blaze might be a bit too complicated for children without stellar number sense. However, the concept of "pay as much as you want" provides a great window into the mathematical world and into the intricacies of Magic. Depending on the child, it may be wise to replace them with something like Hunters' Feast and Lava Axe.

Emzed on Alesha, who smiles at Commander

Alesha needs a good number of creatures to work best, i think you should definitely play more than 30. Some suggestions (not all of them creatures): Ponyback Brigade, Duplicant, Karmic Guide, Blind Zealot, Buried Alive, Bone Shredder, Shizo, Death's Storehouse, Siege-Gang Commander, Marsh Flitter, Filth, Nahiri's Machinations, Skullclamp, Swords to Plowshares, Hanweir Battlements.
I think you should cut Hold at Bay, Avenging Arrow, Show of Valor, Safe Passage, Messenger's Speed, Lava Axe, Great Teacher's Decree, Flurry of Horns, Spite of Mogis, March of the Returned. None of those are good cards.
As far as protection of Alesha goes, Emerge Unscathed and Center Soul seem like two good options that you are missing, rebound makes them better than Gods Willing.

Lava Axe is too much mana, plain and simple. also Avaricious Dragon can be a dead card just like lava axe and when it does go off, requires you to discard your hand, which for the +1 of drawing a single card, there are a lot better cards. Also, the way to play with Eidolon of the Great Revel is to play all of your spells first, then eidolon, or if you have a hand with instants, you can play them on your opponents turn after they kill Eidolon because they will have to deal with it soon.
