The complete card list for this set has been revealed!
Apart from the cards that were previously revealed, the remaining six cards are:
Most of the cards in this set are nice, with only one or two feeling like filler, to me (which was the purpose of the Signature Spellbook series, since too many From the Vault sets had cards that were clearly less valuable or powerful than the other cards). Fiery Confluence is the best card in this set, since it was the most expensive, and, thus, in most need of a reprint, but none of the others were very rare or valuable, although that does not mean that they are filler.
Cathartic Reunion was an excellent choice, and the new artwork on Pyromancer Ascension is very nice, but why did WotC choose Pyroblast instead of Red Elemental Blast, when Signature Spellbook: Jace contained Blue Elemental Blast. Also, how could they not have chosen Chandra's Ignition for this set? The artwork that was used on Rite of Flame would have been perfect for that card, especially since RoF has no real connection to Chandra, because the flavor text relates to the ignition of her planewalker spark, and because the artwork clearly shows her planeswalker spark igniting.
The lack of Chandra's Regulator is very disappointing, since I think that that card would have looked great with the frame style that this set has, and I cannot understand why Young Pyromancer was not given new artwork, because, while the card is clearly meant to depict Chandra as a child or adolescent, the character looks nothing like Chandra.
What does everyone else say about this? What do you think of the card list for this set?

Wow! Yeah, I see all your points. Now, don't you think that, in that case then, Pyromancer Ascension would be nonsense since I would be dropping 2 copies of a lot of cards? Would add maybe some more lands instead or maybe some budget fetches? I certainly could use those suggestions but then the synergy with Pyromancer Ascension would disappear, don't you think? Thank you very much, Hynx!! You certainly got the idea of the deck!

My local shop plays budget modern and I thought of brewing something like this. Looking here for ideas. I was thinking, early, Boomerang and Eye of Nowhere to slow them until we start destroying land. I was also thinking Pyromancer Ascension and Mission Briefing (little self mill with Baral to help Pyro cntrs). With you denying their lands, Spell Pierce and Syncopate become a bit better. Simian Spirit Guide and Magus of the Moon are 2.50 and 5.00

I am thinking about making another deck that focuses on using Minotaur shamans such as Oracle of Bones , then using Repeated Reverberation with various lightning-related spells. Another options could be Reverberate , Reversal of Fortune and Pyromancer Ascension .

1332 The only cards I would change are to add Scalding Tarn over the Polluted Delta in terms of straight upgrades. Maybe add a few extra Fiery Islet over Spirebluff Canal but there is a lot of burn in my area. Extra Monastery Mentor over the Pyromancer Ascension in the sideboard.

Hi there, I run a similar-ish deck (Fiery Flashbacks: Traumatic Memories of a Monk) and just had a couple of questions/observations. Firstly, I think you're doing Manamorphose a real disservice: with Ruby Medallion out this card is a cantrip that nets you additional mana! Afew I really like the combo of discard-to-draw spells plus Pyromancer Ascension - does it often manage to get you lethal? Also does anyone around you play Glacial Chasm ? I found that to be a pretty hard answer to the deck and had to include some land destruction in mine but I guess it's meta-dependant. Finally, what do you think about Runaway Steam-Kin ? I've not had a chance to test it but I think it could really help with mana acceleration or provide a way around Leyline of Sanctity etc.

I didn't get the notification for your earlier comment, so I'm reading through it now.
Points I agree with:
Renaming hubs is no issue at all, and Artifact and Enchantment can be made plural easily. I've gotten a couple of requests to change Amulet Bloom to Amulet Titan. Right now, it's a compromise by acknowledging the name origin in the description, but I see a lot of decks on this site named for Amulet Titan, so it's probably time to change that over.
Devotion and Energy are pretty Satndard-specific mechanics. You also mention Cruel Control and Exalted, and I believe you mentioned Caw Blade and Solar Flare in another thread as Standard decks that are past their time.
Points I'm not sold on:
I think Battlecruiser is a sufficiently unique subset of ramp/control, similar to Zoo being a unique subset of aggro/creatures, or Eggs being a unique subset of artifact/combo.
I had Spellslinger described more or less as "permanentless" for a while, then got several people telling me that the support permanents are just as important--think Thing in the Ice Flip or Keranos, God of Storms or Pyromancer Ascension . Turns out Spellslinger decks are majority, but definitely not exclusively, instants and sorceries.
Aikido can be renamed, but I've seen it clearly identified as that on other sites, and "Tactical Appropriation", while accurate and descriptive, is kind of a mouthful.
Loam and Lands have a lot of overlap, but I think Loam sits somewhere between Lands and Dredge. I want to look around, do some research, and see if there's any Lands decks that don't automatically include Life from the Loam . Would the Legacy Dark Depths deck go under the Lands hub?
Large... Not sure where this is going. Is there a hub called Large that I don't see?
Vehicle still has a novelty factor, but I'm willing to be convinced to take this off as too Standard-y, especially if nothing new shows up in the next set. This is more "wait and see" than "I'm not changing." If Vehicles continue to be printed, I'm going to keep it.
The tribal stuff, I'm going to look around and see what's been hubbed for those as well. Cats in particular had a major pre-built deck for it, and Angels, Knights, and Demons are casual stars, and get new additions almost every set. I don't know if they're sustained across Standard rotations.
I'll start cleaning some of this up tomorrow. It might not be a bad idea to start a dedicated hub addition/removal thread.

I suspect Raven's Crime is really bad right now. Between Phoenix and Hogaak, there are a lot of decks which want to discard specific cards in their hand. You want your discard to pick away Stitcher's Supplier and Pyromancer Ascension , not Bridge from Below and Arclight Phoenix .
