Chandra's Incinerator

Creature — Elemental

This spell costs less to cast, where X is the total amount of noncombat damage dealt to your opponents this turn.

Trample

Whenever a source you control deals noncombat damage to an opponent, Chandra's Incinerator deals that much damage to target creature or planeswalker that player controls.

Dead_Blue_ Thanks for the suggestions! I appreciate the heads up about Goblin Guide and budget card recommendations are always welcome. I've heard Goblin Guide is a good card but never grabbed a copy/playset myself. In this deck it would probably be competing for a spot with Dragon's Rage Channeler and/or Vexing Devil. At this time I think I prefer Dragon's Rage Channeler due to its ability to manipulate my next draw, and Vexing Devil would help me cast Chandra's Incinerator early should an opponent decide to sacrifice it (4 damage for 1 mana ain't bad either). Plans always change though and perhaps as I get a few games in I might feel differently.

Thanks again for the suggestions!

wallisface Thanks for the suggestion! Seal of Fire is an interesting idea! The purpose of Guttersnipe was to take advantage of its trigger to deal noncombat damage. I'm not committed to it, but I considered using it to get additional value out of Lava Dart and other instants/sorceries. It does pair well with the ability of Chandra's Incinerator, but I admit it's on the cutting board and one of the reasons I'm looking for replacements within the community lol! If I remove Guttersnipe I may be looking to replace Lava Dart as well....

My thinking with Soul-Scar Mage was to get around indestructible or whittle down large creatures. Additionally I considered using it against protection from red in conjunction with Anger of the Gods, but I'm realizing as I type this it would likely be a niche situation where both are needed. Concerning indestructible or large creatures, I could see Soul-Scar Mage doing real work with Chandra's Incinerator if they're both on the battlefield. To be honest though I don't know the prevalence of these strategies or how well this might answer them....

Thanks again for your suggestion though, much appreciated!

Seal of Fire is a card that works great alongside Chandra's Incinerator, as its another option to allow you to cast it turn 2. I’d suggest finding room for a playset if them.

Your mainboard looks pretty solid, except for Guttersnipe… that card is pretty universally bad and i’d suggest cutting it.

Your sideboard also looks really solid. The only odd choice there is Soul-Scar Mage - i don’t see when you’d be bringing this into the deck. If it doesn’t fit in the mainboard i wouldn’t put it into the side.

Thanks Abaques

I judge every card i add by the ETB to CMC ratio... and really Chandra's Incinerator would be basically a single CMC for 1 ETB... which is pretty good. might have to consider it.. i am looking to get rid of Breya's Apprentice .. it has underperformed recently...

I do like the added benefit of killing off potential attacking creatures, because i do tend to become the target of my friend group when I play this deck.

I like it! I have a similar Purphoros deck. Wondering what your thoughts on Chandra's Incinerator would be?
