Creeping Trailblazer Discussion
1 week ago
mwalkner Good idea! I first had Creeping Trailblazer in the deck but cut it for Voice of Resurgence because of the amount of removal and interactive play in my playgroup, but it would fit nicely. Also Omnath, Locus of the Roil was once in the mix, but I noticed that the Landfall ability wouldn't have the impact I wished for, so I'll built another deck around this theme once Return to Zendikar drops. Phantasmal Image would also fit and streamline the deck, but I figured more diversity to be a little more fun :) Aether Vial is a beautiful busted card anyways, but -like you mentioned- way too expensive for my budget... Thank you for all the good input!

Creeping Trailblazer and Phantasmal Image are both really solid option, I play this deck in legacy and I love the shell a ton, if its ever in your budget Aether Vial and a one of Omnath, Locus of the Roil are great

This is a super cool deck. I like it. Now. What if you used Risen Reef and Amulet of Vigor to play your entire deck?? note: if this strat isn't your style then this may just be me theorycrafting about my own upcoming elemental deck!
To that end, you could run 4 Brighthearth Banneret to fuel the engine, and for finishers have a bunch of those Ball Lightning sorts of elementals and Embodiment of Fury and such, though Creeping Trailblazer may be enough to pump the team and win, Grove Rumbler is probably safer- it has trample... maybe we play Song of Creation with this???

This looks like a lot of fun to play, but it may need a bit of tweaking.
Creeping Trailblazer does really well with Chandra, Acolyte of Flame and such because you're getting so much extra power. Here it might honestly just slow you down. Growth Spiral is a good early game card to assist your plan: ramping into the big Elementals.
Definitely go up to 4x Risen Reef . While doing so, you really take advantage of your Elemental tribal. If you do this, little Chandra becomes arguably better ramp than Chandra, Novice Pyromancer , although I can see her dual utility in ramp and power boosting.
As strong a card as Nissa, Who Shakes the World is, you've probably ramped enough if you've reached 5 mana already, as the cavaliers, Omnath and Yarok all cost 5 or less. Healer of the Glade is not a very exciting card but it helps against aggro and pairs well with Risen Reef. Otherwise something to copy your important creatures like Spark Double can make games more interesting and is IMO a very fun card to play.
My final suggestion is to take advantage of the ramp you have, and throw in maybe 2 bombs like Agent of Treachery or Drakuseth, Maw of Flames . These don't go with your theme as the Cavaliers are your "Four Horsemen", but it's an option. I'd recommend at least putting in a few removal spells in case the opponent resolves a real problem (especially a Planeswalker... Assassin's Trophy is a flexible one).
These are just things to consider. I like the look of this and would happily try out something similar on Arena.

Roxas255 I would probably take out Thicket Crasher for Thunderkin Awakener . Cut down one Omnath, Locus of Rage . Take out Beastmaster Ascension for more land. Creeping Trailblazer works great with Chandra, Acolyte of Flame . Hope this helps you out.

Well, it seems this deck was forgotten about.
Did you miss Core Set 2020? Because there are several goodies for you...
Let me throw out some ideas. Omnath, Locus of the Roil , Risen Reef , Yarok, the Desecrated , Scampering Scorcher , Chandra, Awakened Inferno , Leafkin Druid , Creeping Trailblazer , Lavakin Brawler , Overgrowth Elemental
Any of these are very powerful. And if you are willing to splash black in the sideboard, you might as well add Yarok and go four colors. Frontier supports it with Fetch lands, Shock lands, and Check lands.
Hope this helps.
