Duly noted! And thank you for the response. Unfortunately for Spitebellows , that means that I have to reconsider the usefulness of the card in my deck; however, this is a fortunate turn of events for Llanowar Elves .

Some additional clarification: the effect of a triggered ability is only optional if it specifically says "you may" or otherwise gives you a choice between doing something and doing nothing. Spitebellows ' ability doesn't give you any options, so you if you're able to choose a legal target then you have to do it.

Please remember to link your cards with double brackets, since that makes it a bit easier to respond.

[[Spitebellows]], [[Llanowar Elves]], and [[Volrath the Fallen]]

Spitebellows , Llanowar Elves , and Volrath the Fallen


Spitebellows dies (as does the Volrath the Fallen and its ability is put on the stack. Since the ability targets, you must choose a valid target for the ability. Unfortunately for your poor Llanowar Elves , they are the only valid target, so you'll be targeting them with your own Spitebellows ability.

Magmatic Sinkhole is clearly one of the best options - due to also killing walkers - the delve however you cannot run multiple copies due to mechanic.

Spitebellows is also one of the top options, and it gets around stuff that counters "non-creature spells" like Stubborn Denial or Force of Negation ... etc.

However the real answer if simply running Dreadhorde Arcanist as with bolt "flashback" bolt it is easily able to deal 6 damage - which means that as log as the board is not completely clogged it can successfully attack through things like Primeval Titan . That creature is all the hard removal you could ever wish for.
Honorable mentions go to cards like Lightning Axe , Redcap Melee , Roast , Flame Slash , Harvest Pyre - and Abrade (for its versatility)

Or Collective Brutality to give you a good way to discard Spitebellows

Cool idea to use Sundial of the Infinite . Do you think Spark Elemental has a good spot in the deck? also I would highly recommend you play Lightning Bolt for reach, maybe Lightning Axe for interaction, but it seems you are not too far into the discard cards for Thunderkin Awakener , so it may not be worth it. I never heard of Lightning Serpent , but it seems very sweet, Id say to go to 4 because you can dump counters on it later in the game and still keep it with sundial. I'd also suggest taking out maybe 2 or 3 copies of Nova Chaser , because it is 4 mana, but more so because it sucks to have that card in hand and not be able to play it, especially since a lot of your cards just kill themselves every turn. Spitebellows seems sweet. I think that with Flamekin Harbinger , you could afford to play a toolbox strategy, especially from the sideboard. You could run say one Ingot Chewer and maybe if you wanted to go non-budget, you can splash white for Wispmare . I can see the deck is still in development given the 7 card sideboard, but you look like you are headed in a good direction. few things you can add to the side would be Duress , Thoughtseize , or Collective Brutality . Hope this helps you!

Roast might be your best option. Flame Javelin could be helpful too. Combust is good if its blue or white creatures. Collision / Colossus or Crushing Pain or Spitebellows Are all decent choices

Spitebellows seems like an interesting choice, but realistically i’d just be better off as being another Path/Push
