This looks super fun! I wonder if Narset's Reversal would play well with this setup...

Indeed, I've played some form of prowess since Khans standard. If you search mtgtop8 for decks in all formats that have made it to the top 8 of any ranked competitive tournament in Modern, Pioneer or any other format, the sheer number of lists with 4 Monastery Swiftspears and 4 Soul-Scar Mages is staggering. And those lists can vary widely from color combos to creature choices, and they go waaay back from Khans of Tarkir to the present.
This tells me that (1.) there's a huge meta for the Prowess theme specifically, and (2.) there's enough variations to make it a theme, not just a single meta deck. And that's just in ranked competitive play.
Here on the site, a quick deck search for the word "Prowess" turns up the maximum number of 10 pages of decks, and that only goes back 3 weeks. Many are mostly red, but some are blue/white, green/white, even blue/black. If there's 200 prowess decks being built or updated every 3 weeks here, how many more live on this site?
I don't put tags on my Prowess or Heroic or hybrid decks because none of the existing tags fit. I want to search specifically for this obviously popular theme to see what others have brewed, but if I have to look through every decklist under "Aggro" or "Spellslinger", it's an absolute waste of time. That's what accurate hubs are for.

Thanks Deino, I didn't realize. And shadow63, you're right. Blitz would probably work better for the website, as it fits Prowess and a few others that don't have an existing hub that fits.

I support this hub. Spellslinger and Voltron don't fit. There are 5 differently colored prowess decks in the Modern tournament top 8 lists that all have different colors, they've certainly earned a hub. Perhaps a "Blitz" hub to accommodate Prowess and a few others that also don't fit the existing hubs?

Since every color combo except green/black can be prowess, and since there are 5 prowess decks of different colors in the Modern tournament top 8 and 2 in the Pioneer tournament top 8, can we get a Prowess hub for decks? Or a Blitz hub to also include fast Heroic decks and others with a similar theme?

Sunscorched Desert is genius! In the interest of speed, you might consider dropping Torbran, Thane of Red Fell and Insult / Injury for Seal of Fire and/or Rift Bolt to set up a turn 2 Chandra's Incinerator. Also helps reserve a bit of mana and damage for a truly devastating Chandra's Spitfire attack. shrug
