Pyromancer's Gauntlet


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

unos on Chandra

7 months ago

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.

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.

Suppose I have Embermaw Hellion and Pyromancer's Gauntlet out, then I cast Chandra's Ignition. Both the Hellion and the Gauntlet see the card. Do I get both replacement effects or must I chose one?

Here are some strong and flavorful options for your deck. Hostility, Inferno Titan, Bogardan Hellkite, and Blasphemous Act are just good cards. Pyromancer's Goggles, Pyromancer's Gauntlet, and Inferno however are very flavorful for your commander. The goggles actually belonged to her and Inferno is her last ability.

There also seems to be a theme with dividing damage I find it kind of fun so Pyromancer's Swath could be good with this theme though risky. You would need some way of countering its negative effect. Anyway here are some good split damage spells. Arc Lightning, Avacyn's Judgment, Impact Resonance, Violent Eruption, Barbed Lightning, Cone of Flame, Searing Blood, and Searing Blaze.

I can see a lot of good options for making cuts if you want help with that.

Love the deck, but if you really want to be mean, you should add some ways of copying your evil spells. You could use stuff like Mirari or Pyromancer's Goggles (or alternatively, Pyromancer's Gauntlet). These let you get more bang for your mana. I.E. up to a triple Cruel Ultimatum, or just a bunch of spammy Lightning Bolts. Good Luck with your deck! +1
