Burning Prophet Discussion

Fire Urchin / Thunderkin Awakener and Firebrand Archer or Thermo-Alchemist make nice additions alongside spitfire. Nivix Cyclops saw play in Temur Battle Rage combo lists.

Soul-Scar Mage & Immolation Shaman might have sideboard spots. Satyr Firedancer has always looked far better than it is-don't bother.

Foundry Street Denizen , Goblin Piledriver , Goblin Instigator , Hordeling Outburst and similar goblin spam does a lot.

Burning Prophet is interesting card filtering, as is Magma Jet . Kari Zev, Skyship Raider is efficient, and Tilonalli's Summoner is cute af.

Dreadhorde Arcanist / Young Pyromancer ; strong and meta, but end up defining any deck they are in. Break Through the Line is an interesting enabler, but cards that aren't dealing damage are a little weak here.

The deck I'm running has almost all dual-color lands, but I see your point. I'll playtest it a few times and see how it works out.

Burning Prophet and Spellgorger Weird are both excellent replacements. I think I prefer Burning Prophet because it's cheaper (something this deck values) and because of the scrying effect.

it does not do the same thing as dreadhord arcanist but Burning Prophet fits in with both the deck and the mana cost so i think it could be an excellent budget replacement.

I would however bring up that Naya feather is unreliable in terms of color consistency. (this is my current standard deck).

I play with a full set of shock lands and most of the buddy lands (soon to rotate) and I still sometimes get mana screwed. So with a budget land base im afraid the deck will be too unreliable.

I would recommend sticking with boros (even though Season of Growth is amazing) i will be swapping to boros when rotation happens

My first suggestion would be more mana rocks. Finish the signet cycle, and the talisman cycle is complete and on the cheap too. Not enough ramp in this deck.

Elsha cares mightily what you have on top of your deck, a little more manipulation is in order. Ponder , Portent , Serum Visions , Burning Prophet , Mystic Speculation , Telling Time , there is probably more. Prophet in particular is an amazing card for Elsha, its adept at keeping the deck's engine going.

Cards to prune would start at the high cmc and go down. Hypersonic Dragon doesn't bring enough to the table, Swarm Intelligence is kind of just a worse thousand year storm, blue sun zenith is harsh on the mana base and needs significant investments.

I do like this deck a lot, plenty of powerful cards and spicy win-cons.

TwinStags Here are the cards you want opinions: Oblation Stuffy Doll Silverclad Ferocidons Crack the Earth Misguided Rage ( Phalanx Leader Anax and Cymede tokens with Young Pyromancer Launch the Fleet Monastery Mentor Akroan Crusader Vanguard of Brimaz ) Goblinslide Tenth District Legionnaire Burning Prophet and I'll give you my opinions.

Oblation : This is a great card! For 2 and a White you exile a token and get TWO LANDS!! VALUE!! Until you run out of basic lands to fetch. Then you're getting rid of 1 creature threat at a cost of giving two lands to only ONE of your opponents. ChibiNature's explanation for getting rid of Oblation is higher up on this thread. But Oblation only does so much for 3 CMC. Compare to other spells that is in this deck, that is also 3 CMC, Oblation is a clear choice to cut. BUT, if you are going the TOKEN route for your EDH deck then this is good. Not great, only good.

Stuffy Doll Silverclad Ferocidons : These two are basically the same effect, hurt them and they hurt our opponent. So the question becomes 'How many 'Direct Damage' spells are we going to run? The answer: Not enough. These two cards do not justify the amount of direct damage spells we need to run to kill our opponents.

Crack the Earth Misguided Rage : These cards have no synergy with Feather, the Redeemed , there is no value because we can't replay these cards unless we do graveyard recursion which is a host of other cards that is NOT in Boros colors.

Phalanx Leader Anax and Cymede tokens with Young Pyromancer Launch the Fleet Monastery Mentor Akroan Crusader Vanguard of Brimaz ) Goblinslide : This is actually a good idea, make a bunch of tokens and just spew all over our opponents faces. This is probably the 2nd best way to play Feather, the Redeemed . It does need a lot of setup and luck in drawing your creatures and spells. I can see an aggro deck that snowballs very fast. You'll be enemy #1 very fast. But can you bounce back after a boardwipe? How many turns will it take for you to rebuild your army of tokens? What about the balance of number of creatures to number of pump spells? How are you going to protect your tokens from being wiped?

Tenth District Legionnaire Burning Prophet : Scrying is nice. Drawing is better. For example you cast a spell onto Tenth District Legionnaire and you scry and decide to keep that card on the top. What happens to the next spell you cast onto Tenth District Legionnaire . If it is a pump spell, then it's better to cast it onto Zada, Hedron Grinder and pump ALL your tokens instead of only Tenth District Legionnaire . The same argument goes for Burning Prophet as well. My opinion is that Burning Prophet is better than Tenth District Legionnaire

You are missing two other ways to play Feather, the Redeemed . Have you looked into Flicker playstyle using Cloudshift and Otherworldly Journey ? Have you seen Zealous Conscripts and Stonehorn Dignitary ? Imagine casting Cloudshift onto Stoneforge Mystic ! ProTip: Use Zealous Conscripts to grab an enemy creature, then cast Cloudshift onto the creature you stole... that creature is now yours until it dies, not until end of turn!

Also, add Goblinslide to that list

Any thoughts on the scry benefits from Tenth District Legionnaire or Burning Prophet . Tenth probably not because it needs direct.

(Mostly bothering you because you’re actively play testing and making changes)

I think that Burning Prophet doesn't really have a place in this deck. It's a 2 drop that's replacing Viashino Pyromancer and I think that the pyromancer is better for this kind of deck. Burning prophet helps you go long, but pyromancer has pseudo haste and I think that outweighs the highs of Burning Prophet .

I also think that Risk Factor isn't as good as some more Skewer the Critics . Skewer is more efficient with all of your creatures.

I think that the obvious comparison for Chandra, Fire Artisan is to Experimental Frenzy . Frenzy has a much higher ceiling, and at first I thought frenzy was the correct choice. But chandra guarantees some amount of damage. I think there is an argument for a version with Burning Prophet and frenzy to scry away extra lands, but I don't think any optimized list has Chandra, Fire Artisan and Burning Prophet together.

Cool deck, and I'm excited to see what the final version looks like once everyone finds the final list.
