Soulfire Grand Master Discussion

So there is Lava Axe, right?
And a step up is Lightning Axe, requiring either a cost of or discarding a card.
Next logical step would be...
As an additional cost, you may pay 2 life. If you do, you may cast Hellfire Axe as though it has Flash.
Hellfire Axe deals 3 damage to you and 5 damage to target creature or Planeswalker.
The fires of Hell burn more than just flesh. They burn the soul of the ones attempting to conjure them from their raging pits.
So we go from a high-cost card to a low-cost card if you lose card advantage, down to a low-cost card that maintains card advantage if you're willing to take a hit against your own life total.
I'm sure there are some decks this can find it's way into easily (Cough Soulfire Grand Master, Firesong and Sunspeaker cough cough). However, I'm not entirely certain I did this right so I'm offering up the same challenge.
Make a vertical or horizontal cycle for a card that should have already been a cycle, or a card that helps complete one.

I recommend Hazoret the Fervent based on how aggro the deck is - however, she can be hard to use, so maybe not.
I would recommend not using something like Lava Spike because it has very little versatility. Despite being one mana, you can play it turn one and deal three damage - but later game, you won't prioritize it over a better threat when getting a card with Anticipate. I would have recommended Boros Charm, but you already have it. Because of this, I think Myth Realized, Path to Exile, Isamaru, Hound of Konda, Vexing Devil, Authority of the Consuls, and maybe Bushi Tenderfoot would all be better 1st-turn plays that retain their value later game. Also, Soulfire Grand Master is very good in Jeskai.

Really cool idea, I got quite excited and have spent the last 5 hours trying to make a deck...
I used Narset, Enlightened Master as commander and built it more around her, I did however keep your alliteration deck title idea...
So annoying Soulfire Grand Master isn't a legendary!
Bit disappointed with it but here it is

I'm fairly new to magic to please say if you think it's total guff

Chiberia it's 2 weeks actually. I uploaded March 9th :)
TheACTR sure I'll have a peek :)
Use the slug(words between the // in the URL) of your deck and plug it in like this: [[deck-large:super-smash-boros-firesong-sunspeaker-edh]] The -large isn't needed, it just makes it a thumbnail instead of a text link
Also, I like Book of Rass.
Thanks all for 100 upvotes! Love ya all!

I realized why else this whole thing makes me mad.
They intentionally made this card for commander.
They made this card a Buy-A-Box exclusive.
Because of those two things, the made it bad on purpose.
Because it's a BaB promo, and technically standard legal(right?) Wizards can't make it good in standard because if it was good in standard it would become super expensive because they're aren't many of them. Thus, like the Planeswalkers from the 'walker decks, they made it cost a ton and made the abilities clunky. That's why it's bad!
Don't get me wrong, I love the card, BUT:
- Why is it cmc 6??
- Why do only red spells get lifelink?
- Why do only white spells trigger it?
- Why no keywords?
- Why just a 4/6? Why not 4/7?
- Why cmc 6?
This truly shows Wizards lack of understanding of standard but more of Commander as a format, and Boros players within that format. Why make us jump through so many hoops? Why doesn't it synergize with itself? And CMC 6? Are you kidding me? Do you know what Boros is??????
Soulfire Grand Master costs 2, has a keyword, has a better lifelink ability, has a recursion ability(somewhat equivalent to damage ability), and is a 2/2 so has full power/toughness for the 2 cmc price.
WHY CAN'T YOU DO THAT AGAIN
How to fix this card:
- CMC 4, 2/7 abilities stay the same
- CMC 5, 4/6, "all instants and sorceries" for both abilities
- CMC 5, everything else the same, give it Prowess
- CMC 6, 3/7 "all instants and sorceries" for both abilities, Prowess
- AND PRINT IT IN THE SET
Wizards tried to do something special for Boros commander players. But they didn't do their homework and have messed it up, badly.

Hey,thanks for your opinion and your tipps. I like your suggestions, overall Soulfire Grand Master is a great idea.Im already owning 1 Anger of the Gods and I will test it, too.I will test more and more and the time will bring the "perfect" deck for me ;)
Again: Thank you!

Looks pretty good so far. As far as the Spitfire goes, it's pretty strong, and on alpha strike turns can become a finisher in its own right.
Have you considered Soulfire Grand Master? I don't know what you'd slot out for her, but giving all your considerable burn spells lifelink would put you well out of range of counter-burn but also gives you some buyback later on. It's expensive, sure, but it's nice to keep reusing those Lightning Bolts.
Also, if for some reason you end up using Bonfire of the Damned or Anger of the Gods, both play really well with Boros Charm and/o Soulfire Grand Master. For 5 total mana, you can Anger everything for 3 damage, make all your guys indestructible, and gain 3 life for every creature damaged that way. Or with Soulfire out, Bonfire on a miracle cast becomes a crazy huge swing in life totals.
Anyway, looks good as it is. Looks like you have the right ideas, so keep testing and see if that Chandra's Spitfire works for you or not!
