Soul-Scar Mage and burn spells.

So I'm thinking the best combo finisher I could add as an alternate wincon would be Godo, Bandit Warlord+Helm of the Host. Unlike all the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Krenko, Mob Boss combos, Godo actually finds the other piece, and you don't have to cram in all the terrible colorless tutors.

Another benefit is that Helm isn't a dead draw without Godo, as it has a lot of other great targets like a devoted Purphoros, God of the Forge, Krenko, Soul-Scar Mage, a lord, etc...

Godo can also find our non-combo equipment like Illusionist's Bracers/Nemesis Mask/Lightning Greaves/Swiftfoot Boots/Skullclamp.

@Ocelot44 thanks for the feedback. I added Wheel of Fortune and Reforge the Soul to the deck by taking out Soul-Scar Mage and Comet Storm. If you think I should have taken out something different instead, please let me know but I think these were the most logical choices to me. I think by putting in these two draw sources I would pass for the lands which give big advantage to the other players too for now. I had Bonfire of the Damned and didn't like the interaction with the deck. Past in Flames is great but it's useful only for one card since it requires a lot of mana to be played efficiently. If you know any win interactions with it please let me know. Don't forget to leave upvote if you like it and thanks for suggestions again.

The developers at wizards crossed the minus one minus one counter theme between red, black and green which is why The Scorpion God was black and red. This is also seen on cards such as Soul-Scar Mage and Merciless Javelineer.

TheCrimsonKing101: Good catch, it definitely should be! I found Soul-Scar Mage after I had already made the budget version, and just forgot to copy it to both.

Thanks for such a quick and detailed reply! Will look into those changes. Ib is someone I've always been interested in, but never figured out a full deck.

Any reason Soul-Scar Mage is in the non budget version and not here? Seems like its huge value if you do end up using the 4 damage from Ib.
