Nova Chaser Discussion

Hi TheOverall,

This is a fun looking red elemental tribal deck, but I'm surprised by the absence of Stigma Lasher (stops life-gain) and Nova Chaser (big hitter). Other elementals that might be useful are Hostility and Scorchwalker. You also want to be running Lightning Bolt in the main deck, the spell is just too efficient and Modern is a format about efficiency.

I hope my comment is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Cards to consider:

Primal Beyond for mana fixing Elementals.

Flamekin Village not Modern legal, but you're playing Casual so go for it!Nova Chaser hits hard and can "tuck" your Harbinger, and plays well with Soulstoke.

Assault Strobe for Nova Chaser, or Berserk which can be picked up for about $10 now, last time I checked.

I have to confirm because if so it's ... brutal !!! And for just one mana of Vexing Devil i can put 4 conters in War Elemental ...! I want to complete this deck now .... and I also want two Nova Chaser ... It will be explosive and super combo deck !!

thanks a lot !!!

(My love ... I need more money!!! "For Wath???" To give you a nice present... hehehehheh...)

So I'm a believer that the best way to build this deck is through playing big dudes with no butt for dirt cheap! So cards like Ball Lightning, Cosmic Larva, Blistering Firecat, Phyrexian Dreadnought, and Nova Chaser (fyi you can respond to Nova Chaser and Dreadnought's ability on the stack and sack them into Brion). Malignus is also great and I think a STAPLE in this deck. Other than that...

Oh and this may be obvious, but in this deck always swing your creatures before you sac them into Brion! You never know what your opponent will do but at least you will force them to react, and then be able to react accordingly.

Nova Chaser is pretty cool - use Flamekin Harbinger to tutor for, then Champion the Harbinger so when Nova Chaser dies, you can use the Harbinger again! Also, Nova Chaser makes a great target for Fling! Granted, it's a little pricey.

Boza on Elemental Bolt

Not to discourage here, but while I like the combo of pandemonium + chaser + twinflame, it is a 3 card combo that requires 10 mana total, 6 of which must be on the same turn. Very hard to do reliably. Additionally, it works a bit against you, negating any damage that was done by your creatures before that and making it not matter.

So, I think you have two options - either cut the combo out, as it works against the rest of the deck, or focus on not doing any damage and jsut doing the combo.

Suggestion for the first option - cut the twinflame and the pandemonium. Try out Hellspark Elemental (really cool interaction between unearth and champion) and Lightning Bolt instead.

Additionally, Crack the Earth past turn 2-3 is really bad. Also, it goes against the general plan of your deck, which is dealing a metric ton of damage. I would suggest Assault Strobe instead - gives you the same mileage as a twinflame for much less mana.

Suggestions for second option - cut all the hasty elementals that deal a lot of damage, but also sacrifice themselves. Add redundancy (aka more copies of certain effects) to the combo - Soul's Fire as an alternative to Twinflame, Leveler as an alternative to Nova Chaser, etc.

@br_dude: Thank you, I'm glad you like it.I set my deck budget for ultra budget decks according to other ultra budget decks on this site to below 50$. Unfortunately one or two updates pushed the deck price a little over that.The main cost factor here is Manamorphose I guess, but it's too valuable to reduce them. I'm thinking about exchanging Thing in the Ice  Flip with cards from the maybe board, but I'm not sure yet. Nova Chaser works too well with the Flamekin Harbinger to ditch it, I think.
