I feel like Stuffy Doll could be swapped out since it is mana for being able to just ping someone for one damage or deal some damage if someone attacks into you it can deal some damage by blocking. Swapping it for Drakuseth, Maw of Flames will be good since when he attacks he will deal 3 damage to two opponents each and 4 damage to another getting you 10 mana with neheb's ability alone without even counting Drakuseth's attack.

Obsidian Fireheart may also be a good card to swap out for something in your maybe board since like I said before you want to deal as much damage as possible before your second main phase to get as much mana out of Neheb's ability as possible. You could pick up Etali, Primal Storm since it will let you steal some cards from your opponents and cast them without paying their mana cost.

Generator Servant isn't really good when a mana rock will just work better. Getting two mana only once isn't really good when you could put in Everflowing Chalice where you could pay the kicker multiple times with Neheb or just cast it for to just get you a mana rock that taps for for each of the following turns.

You could swap Embermaw Hellion for the new Torbran, Thane of Red Fell since it actually costs mana less and will have your red sources deal 2 extra damage instead of 1 extra. Or you could just take out Stormbreath Dragon out of the deck since his becoming monstrous ability can end up not doing a lot of damage if some of your opponents have exhausted their hand size.

Acidic Soil could be taken out for Price of Progress depending on how your local group is playing. If they are multicolor decks then I would definitely swap them since it deals double damage equal to the number of non basic lands they control which could get you a lot of value.

Phule451: I just saw your first post. Embermaw Hellion is a good find, I missed that when considering the +x damage cards. The pingers would definitely find a home in here, but I'm afraid of them being swept with my small sweepers along with my opponents' creatures -- so I'm trying to get creatures with a toughness of x/4 if I want them to stick around. But you are totally right in pointing these out!

And, ok, you sold me on Burning Earth -- Manabarbs has been a house in testing, so I'll add it. 50/50 now with Chandra's Regulator - card filtering plus bonus loyalty activations is starting to grow on me. Thanks!

Cinder Pyromancer , Electrostatic Field and Embermaw Hellion all build on what you're already doing. Volcanic Vision is great read graveyard recursion and Pyromancer's Goggles are one of the best red mana rocks out there. I saw both Burning Earth and Chandra's Regulator on the maybe board and I think they both need to go in. Burning Earth is great cause you're mainly playing basic Mountain s anyway and Torbran will increase that damage each time as well and in a format where nonbasics abound, it can be just brutal. Chandra's Regulator pretty much has a home in this kind of deck because where else will you be running so many Chandras? Hope this helps...

Agrothorn, if you're looking for card suggestions then I'd recommend heading over to the deck help forums, but odd the top of my head there's Jaya, Venerated Firemage and Embermaw Hellion . If you run an advanced search on Gatherer for red cards that say "would deal damage", you'll find a lot more.

Twinflame is nice for either cheaply reusing the ETB effect of a costlier creature, or looping it with Anarchist + striving it to continually reuse an ETB effect. Priest of Urabrask + Cloudstone Curio + anything that reduces the priest's cost (Ruby Medallion) or doubles its effect (Panharmonicon) nets you extra mana and extra triggers on things like Impact Tremors. The Priest can even provide infinite mana in the right setup.

Embermaw Hellion makes your enchantments hit harder. Fractured Loyalty on second glance is too situational here since you don't have that many effects that target things. Umbilicus and Blood Clock are not stars by any means, but they do allow you to reuse ETB creatures. Indomitable Creativity seems great if you have a lot of tokens out, and can act as removal as well.

Just thought of a few more that might interest you: Commune with Lava , Flameshadow Conjuring , Minion Reflector , Feldon of the Third Path , Sandstone Oracle , Skirk Prospector

king-saproling Great suggestions!

I haven't tested out Sculpting Steel or Grinning Ignus , but I'm interested in it - looks like they could make the cut but I want to see how they do! I'll test them out.

I don't think I have quite enough flicker effects to make Priest of Urabrask , Anarchist , Meteor Golem , or Knollspine Dragon worth it. The latter 3 are also pretty expensive, how have they performed for you?

In what situations do you usually use Twinflame ? With our eternal struggle for card advantage, I'm not sure if it would be worth the draw usually.

I'm not sure quite how synergistic Embermaw Hellion , Fractured Loyalty , Umbilicus , Indomitable Creativity , or Blood Clock are. Maybe I'm missing it - have any of them been stars for you?
