Modern Aggro Budget Burn Combo Mono-Red




Elementals are incredibly cheap ($$$) and extremely awesome!

Inspired by deck:Flare up

Brighthearth Banneret , Smokebraider , Incandescent Soulstoke can let me cast the big guys in few turns.

Flamekin Harbingerbrings me what I need.

Nova Chaser, Thunderblust are the big guys.

There are a few combos that let me do 20+ damage in one turn.

My favourite is Incandescent Soulstoke + Thunderblust + Fling + Assault Strobe .Cast Thunderblust for 1(R) with Incandescent Soulstoke . It's an 8/3 because it takes +1/+1.Fling it. 8 Damages. He (It?! She?!) returns as a 7/2. Assault Strobe and swing for a 14 total damage with trample. Total mana cost: 2(R)(R)(R), which can be reduced with Smoke Braider by 2.

During my tests I've noticed that a simple mass removal kills me. And I don't really have turn 1 drops except fo Flamekin Harbinger, which is not always a good card because I'm going to lose a draw... Comments, +1, suggestions, critiques are welcome!

Please take a look to the maybeboard if you find anything that worths a try.



Removed 2 mountains. Added 2 Changeling Berserker. Thx to player:lil_cheez

Added a possible infinite combo in Side Board. 2 x Brighthearth Banneret + Grinning Ignus + card:Red Sun's Zenith = infinite damage.

Maybe you should try Changeling Berserker . It counts as an Elemental, has Haste, it's a decent beater, and you can champion the Harbinger... so if he dies, the harbingers enters the battlefield, so you can choose another elemental from your grimory!

That's the combo that's used with Nova Chaser . I like it. I think that I'm gonna put some copies of it...

Oh I see, Nova Chaser has trample, but not haste. Then, may I suggest Fervor ?

I like the changeling for that reason! :) I've tried Fervor , but I find myself using Incandescent Soulstoke in order to do some massive damage about on turn 5...

This a really great deck. Cheap, too. I playtested my aggro Flashfire deck against it and just barely won, no going over at all. Could you give me tips on my deck? I love the name of yours, by the way. Flashfire

Sweet deck! Here's one I made a while back with a ton of the same cards Battling the Elements, but a few noticeable differences.

+1 =D
