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

@AwesomeOctopus: Cool, my knowledge of blue and red are really iffy at best since I mainly play Black and Green and really only ever use blue as a light splash. So thanks for your suggestions! I really like Acquire because that gives me solid options against my friend's Kemba deck. Insurrection and Desertion are really cool ideas and make me think I should a lot more stealing in this deck, might also consider something like Beguiler of Wills. Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time can definitely replace Brilliant Plan and Concentrate.

I really like the Lightning Bolt + Reiterate + Reset Combo, but I don't think I'm really willing to drop the $19 on Reset alone.

Yeah, Pyromancer's Gauntlet really was just something I had sitting around, and Increasing Vengeance probably should replace it.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

I've seen 3 madness cards: Reckless Wurm, Fiery Temper, and Violent Eruption.

I'm thinking that while with Chandra Ablaze you can choose when you want to discard a red card (and gain both the benefits of +1 on chandra and a cheaper casting cost for the red madness card), with Pyromancer's Swath you cannot choose when to discard: it forces you to discard your hand every single turn (included the oponents') so you have to keep the mana open for madness at the end of every turn (if you don't reserve the mana you just "waste" the madness card) --> this constraint forces you to have only part of your mana at disposal in case you have a madness card in your hand, and Pyromancer's Swath on the field.

Pyromancer's Swath has a huge drawback with that forced discard the entire hand at every turn. I think that Chandra is a better "discard machine" for your madness, and Pyromancer's Gauntlet and Fire Servant seem better damage amplifiers than the Swath on almost every aspect (except for the cost).

Do you agree?

I love this! I share your love of Jori. I'm currently using Keranos, but I've been thinking about Jori a lot.

Have you considered Pyromancer's Gauntlet? I know it's janky, but it supes up your little burn spells nicely. And anything that does multiple instances of damage (like Fiery Confluence or Electrolyze) scales well. Also makes your Mizzix's Mastery finisher a little easier.

acbooster on Two Replacement Effects and One ...

Both will apply to the same situation.

Both cards will see Chandra's Ignition dealing damage. Let's say you have Embermaw Hellion apply first. Now the Ignition is dealing X+1 damage where X is the power of the creature you targeted. Then you have Pyromancer's Gauntlet replace that event so now the Ignition is dealing X+3 damage.

The only time you'd have to choose only one to actually take effect is if multiple effects would replace an event with something entirely different, such as having Archmage Ascension and Abundance trying to replace the same draw. If you have one replace it, the event is no longer a card draw and therefore the other can't effect it and does nothing.
