If a red instant or sorcery spell you control or a red planeswalker you control would deal damage to a permanent or player, it deals that much damage plus 2 to that permanent or player instead.

Pyromancer's Gauntlet Discussion
7 months ago
Because Signature Spellbook: Jace included Blue Elemental Blast, I believe that it is safe to presume that this set shall contain Red Elemental Blast, and I forgot to mention that the artifact in this set could potentially be Pyromancer's Gauntlet, as well.

Have you tried Pyromancer's Gauntlet ? It seems flavorful and relatively powerful.

A great include would be Pyromancer's Gauntlet , Pyromancer's Goggles , and Embermaw Hellion . They would boost your damage and double some of the burn spells. If you want a bit more chaos, take a look at Lightning Storm or Pyromancer's Swath . The Flame of Keld could also be interesting if you can have a burn spell or two in the four cards you get from casting it.

I like the Curse. I almost feel like it should also do some damage to someone other than you for that mana cost, but I guess it's essentially a double Arcane Adaptation and Zombie an Minotaur do both have a lot of tribal support, so it's worth it.
For images, I've been looking at mCardstock just because I saw the link here (like I said, had card images for the walkers but couldn't get them to show up) and I was just making the "X can be your commander" and Eminence ability the third ability with a 0 cost; not entirely accurate, but close enough. Once or twice; I just put the "can be your commander" at the end of the X ability due to relative wordiness.
As someone who enjoys Rakdos, what do you think about this card for Rakdos/mono red in Commander:
Legendary Artifact - Equipment
Flame Chains costs less for each spent
If a non-creature source you control or equipped creature is red and would deal damage to a permanent or player, it deals that much damage plus 1 for each opponent with 1 or more life instead. Equip

Fork and Reverberate are the best of the copy spells. Increasing Vengeance while amazing, functions only to double up your own spells. Fork and Reverberate both have the option of copying an opponent's spell, and either ramping you when needed or functioning as a counter counter-spell if required. The same flexibility is seen in Wild Ricochet, but Reverberate and Fork are only 2 mana, compared to 4.
Considering Reverberate is significantly cheaper, being a buck or two, depending on edition, I'd add that to the deck in a heartbeat and if you find it useful enough, pick up a fork down the road.
Aside from recommendations of my own, I was curious how you felt Pyromancer's Gauntlet has run for you. It seems overcosted for the effect to me, so I have never picked up a copy to test with.

cloudsol That's a really powerful combo I hadn't thought of! I'll throw it in for some testing this weekend!
burferking I have a couple of things that give that effect, namely Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip, Sin Prodder, and Act on Impulse (as well as other draw effects in spells). I'm trying to not over-saturate the deck with draw abilities, because I'd prefer to be drawing more gas rather than more draw spells. Pyromancer's Gauntlet was a card I wasn't aware of, and will look at putting in!
Thanks for the suggestions guys!
