Hi Cyb3rguerrill0, Well Arc Runner doesn't have trample, so it can be chump blocked with ease. I'd replace it with Lightning Serpent or Hellspark Elemental. I'd also run 2 copies of either Tyrant of Discord, Nova Chaser or Hound of Griselbrand to make best use of Incandescent Soulstoke. If you have a sideboard, you might also want to consider some elemental hate bears Tunnel Ignus and Stigma Lasher...

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Interesting deck, haven't seen Horde of Notions as a Commander before.

Consider more enablers to get Elementals into the graveyard:

Seems like Nova Chaser could cut out a combo piece. Faster and bigger. And Vexing Devil would be a decent target to Champion with it. Or add in Flamekin Harbinger and you can tutor the Chaser up over and over.

Try Nova Chaser For some quick power at a great cost.

Not sure if you would be interested, but 2 cards that I use in my elemental deck that could be useful here are Groundbreaker, a green version of Ball Lightning and my personal favorite, Nova Chaser. Nova Chaser is particularly handy if you exiled Flamekin Harbinger in order to summon it.

Have you looked into adding Fling. Nothing hurts worse than a Nova Chaser to the face.

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.
