Spark Trooper Discussion

The Hero of Oxid Ridge is good (especially with the lieutenant), though I don't think it is better than the Spark Trooper imo because the latter works much better after a board wipe. I'd probably keep the cost of most of the deck at 3 mana and below. Though I don't think Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice would be a bad choice to top off the curve. Hellrider could also be a good top end here as it has haste and guarantees damage on the swing it comes in if it isn't dealt with. Hope this helps.

Mh, I might just get a playset of Thalia's Lieutenant. It is a fantastic card in a human themed deck. Do you have some suggestians for the top of the curve? Would you cap at 3 mana? Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice has the flavor and can do something right when she comes down, Hero of Oxid Ridge has haste and buffs the other creatures as well. But then, is he better than the Spark Trooper I already have? Some battallion cards like Firemane Avenger + Tajic, Blade of the Legion would be nice, but they often times feel a bit slow at 4. The Mauler is oftentimes already paired, and then they feel a bit situational.

Well, if you never had any problems with Kiln Fiend then keep it. There's no reason to change what has been working out fine. Just as a thought provoker, you can have Monastery Swiftspear to think about.

Maybe just bad wasn't the best thing to say about Rakdos Shred-Freak . It's just that it offers basically nothing more than haste. You have cards like Hellspark Elemental , as you mentioned, but also:

  1. Earthshaker Khenra - Makes it easier to get to your opponent while also being reusable from the grave in the late game, and even bigger than before.

  2. Ash Zealot - More of a Siboard card, but still, 2 mana for first strike, haste and punishes your opponent for playing cards from your graveyard.

  3. Vexing Devil - Dont't know if you could fit this guy in your budget, but it's amazing. It's either a one mana 4/3 that your opponent will have to waste a removal spell or a one mana 4 damage spell.

However, the real reason I said Rakdos Shred-Freak is bad is because of...

Thunderkin Awakener - It can reanimate all of your (elemental) suicide bombers while attacking. So for only two mana, you can from 4 damage on board, with Thunderkin Awakener and Spark Elemental , to up to 8 damage with the Firecat. You could also put other cards in for him, like Lightning Skelemental and Spark Trooper , but those would require you to adjust the manabase.

Also, since you're playing these cheap suicide bombers you could use Unearth to reanimate them again and hit for a bunch. However, I'm not sure that splashing to black would appeal to you.

Another suicide bomber could be Impetuous Devils , though I don't have much to say about it. You can basically take out one of your opponent's creature by forcing them to block. Just here as an option for you.

Cards like Thud , Fling and Flesh / Blood (the blood half only) should prove themselves more useful than Soul's Fire . Since most of your creatures are dying anyway, there should be no problem in sacrificing them.

Manabasewise, if really want to keep Reality Smasher you can add lands that have a better utility than Rogue's Passage as most of your creatures have trample anyway, so your opponent will regardless always have trouble preventing damage.

I've been writing a lot today, so right now I won't go on too much detail about these "utility" lands. I'll just list some here and you can say if you liked any or none and I'll glady discuss about it.

Just as a curiosty, I've written so many cards in this comment that TappedOut won't let me mark more suggestions, while most not even appearing for me to suggest.

aholder7, I see where you are coming from with this concern. I am running the Force of Savagery simply because I want to see if I can make it work, one of the big reasons I am running Lightning Greaves is to protect our Incandescent Soulstoke to and avoid 2 for ones but it may not always be easy to have all the pieces to the puzzle so I'm running cards like Icon of Ancestry and Flamekin Harbinger to fall back on... even with all of this being said there is a 100% chance that once I play around with the deck I will see that It needs changes... Some of these changes may include cards like Lightning Skelemental , Spark Trooper or maybe Rhythm of the Wild . Thank you for the good suggestions! :)

I’m a little nervous on the Force of Savagery . They only work if you have an anthem out which you have 6 total in the deck from my count. And 4 of those are. Features that can be removed with all the most common removal which opens you up to some devastating 2 for 1s. If you just want high power and trample you can go with any Ball Lightning variant. Perhaps Lightning Skelemental or Spark Trooper . There is also the option of a threat that comes back such as your Thunderblust which could find a friend in Phytotitan .
