I've thought about it quite a bit. Not sure if I'll add it. I mean, the synergy is hilarious with the rest of the deck, it'd give me something else to populate, and it'd be an inclusion of Trample. It's a trigger for the Young Pyromancer , gets +2/haste from Ogre Battledriver ... there's really no reason in not playing it in the deck other than that I'd have to mess around with mana curves. It's def worth putting in.
idk it's a personal preference I guess. All the local shop and players run them in decks like crazy and it always works out for the better.
Honestly, my biggest and really only problem with adding in a card like the Resonator is that I'd have to find stuff to take out and balance the mana curve. -1 Molten Birth ? maybe. -1 Giant Growth ? Maybe. I'll have to think about it for sure, but keeping on top of things with this mana curve is proving to be a lot harder than I thought
GamerSonX is right about the use of Strionic Resonator
for the triggered abilities.
SR + Ogre Battledriver gives each entering creatures +4/+0 (giving +2/+0 twice).
SR + Voice of Resurgence gives you 2 G/W Elemental tokens.
SR + Young Pyromancer gives you 2 red elemental creatures per instant/sorcery.
SR + Chained to the Rocks exiles 2 creatures opponent controls.
SR + Pithing Needle allows you to name 2 cards.
SR + Into the Wilds -- Check the ruling on this, but it might be a nice bonus if you can stack the triggers. If it works, you could actually put 3 lands into play during one turn (1 land for each trigger and then play a land for your turn).
Really helpful suggestion! Thank you! I don't know about Into the Wilds for sure, it's a nice card but I don't know that it's got the right synergy for the deck. And adding 2 resonators would be hilarious, you're absolutely right. Ready / Willing is important to the deck for the indestructibility. Maybe I'll take out Frontline Medic for the resonator. I'll figure this all out.
