Wildfire Eternal Discussion

Instead of tapping down creatures, you could play more removal spells such as Fatal Push , Cast Down , Go for the Throat . Also, if you are really going for the memes, you can try playing Cruel Ultimatum to cheat out with Wildfire Eternal (imagine the look on your opponent's face when they thought they would just be taking 1 damage from the wildfire eternal, and the only card in your hand is Cruel Ultimatum .

I love what you have put together here. My only comment is (and take it with a grain of salt) that your CMC is nice and speedy, but I wonder if you might find yourself somewhat low on lands mid to late game, especially with Sin Prodder giving the opponent the option to send lands to the graveyard. I know that probably is a solid trade for the possible damage done, but im curious if that cuts you off from playing cards that can finish the game up. Id like to hear how the deck plays/has played out for you because the idea is awesome and something i was looking into myself. I guess my last thing would maybe to play up Infiltration Lens and a card like Wildfire Eternal a bit more, maybe adding those as well as stocking a couple more instants or sorceries to cast for free when your opponent wants to avoid blocking for the 4 afflict damage and draw two for you. This may be too small a combo to play up but with your other afflict creatures, it could be painful choices as well as having no choice at all! Awesome deck though, it rocks as is.

Ainiv thanks! i need to get a Balduvian Rage just need to find one. i have Eerie Interlude and should put it in there. i love creatures and being aggro or even defensive to chump in my playgroup while i set up combos with direct damage and pings-- that's the idea anyway we shall see where this goes. just picked up a Wildfire Eternal and considering finding a home for it and going to try and find a Purphoros, God of the Forge to slide in for more global direct damage with all the creature/token generation.

I have to say, Wildfire Eternal is not a great card for these decks.
The only reason people play this card is to cheat spells out, and people know that.
It just makes them leave up a blocker or answer to a relativly slow clock in a format like modern.
I would also probably cut the Spellbook , I don't think it adds much.
Sorry if any of this sounds rude, that was not my intention :) have fun with this deck!

@Saljen yea I should probably give a bit of a better explanation of how the deck functions. The mana curve is a bit misleading as the decks goal is to cast most of the higher mana spells for free.
