Flamekin Harbinger Discussion
1 month ago
I was running Assault Strobe for my initial draft of this deck. The problem is that it needs double strike at instant speed for Thunderkin Awakener. The way it plays I either draw or Flamekin Harbinger for Thunderkin Awakener nearly every game. Maybe a mix of Temur Battle Rage and Assault Strobe would be effective because there are situations where both are good.
Call of the Death-Dweller has won me a lot of games. It is expensive at 3 mana but by the time turn 3 or 4 comes I do have good use of it. It can get a Flamekin Harbinger and a Thunderkin Awakener at the same time. That doesn't happen very often but sometimes it does. If I find something better I'll try it out.
Thanks for the suggestions!

Hi lagotripha,thanks for your comment! Is basically a tribal deck with a "plan b combo",need a different budget for transforme it in competitive or in pure combo( Flamekin Harbinger would be very helpfull). Your analysis are always very welcome ^^

If you are playing a budget storm list, Lava Dart & Conflagrate will add reach and multiple spell casts. Escape Velocity or Underworld Rage-Hound type escape cards makes fossil find a lot better. Just jamming stuff that reads 'when spell' and 'draw a card' will work ok - though meta consideration, luminmancer is making people pack removal for that plan.
Force of Rage is fairly cheap and a pair of ambush vipers can be useful.
There are some cool sideboard options - Tunnel Ignus , Sulfur Elemental , Ingot Chewer and so forth, but they have mostly been balanced around Flamekin Harbinger which is out of budget, so slots will dissapear quick - I'd look at hiding some mainboard.

It's a cool idea, but bustedly abusable if you'd try. Making everything a sliver for example is problematic. Vanquisher's Banner is insane with this. Turntimber Ranger goes infinite with itself. Crux of Fate will be silly. Flamekin Harbinger becomes Worldly Tutor. Gilt-Leaf Archdruid... Those cards are powerful because you need to impose restrictions on your deck to make them effective, but this commander removes all those restrictions entirely. It honestly breaks the game. However, depending how you would build the deck, everything could fall apart if your opponents can keep your commander off the table. You'd be stuck with a bunch of tribal lords without other members of the effected tribes. Very all or nothing.
For a less busted but more balanced and still powerful, similar idea without the need for a custom commander, you could check out this episode of MtGGoldfish' commander clash where the Ur-Dragon deck is a deck that plays a lot of changelings and a lot of seemingly random tribal synergies. The deck is build so, that your creatures mostly already have all creature types, so that you wouldn't need this effect from your commander.

What’s the difference between “Tutors for Tribal Cards” and “Tutors by Creature Type”? All the cards from the former are included in the latter, so why not just combine them into one or the other?
Also, I’d add the Harbingers, Boggart Harbinger, Elvish Harbinger, Faerie Harbinger, Flamekin Harbinger, Giant Harbinger, Kithkin Harbinger, Merrow Harbinger, and Treefolk Harbinger.
Also, my search for Harbingers turned up Nahiri, the Harbinger, which goes in “Notable For: Jumping Through Hoops,” and Yanling's Harbinger, which brings up the Planeswalker Deck tutors. Sure, people are unlikely to run them, but some might.
I’d also like to suggest a category: Combo Tutors. These are the ones that are part of a combo AND search for another one of the pieces. Ones that come to mind are Godo, Bandit Warlord and Forerunner of the Empire. Godo tutors for Helm of the Host, which he goes infinite with, and Forerunner tutors for Polyraptor, and from then you simply need to give Forerunner indestructible and then play Polyraptor to go infinite with.
Lastly, I’d suggest changing “Tutors to Graveyard” to “Tutors w/ Graveyard Synergies,” so you can include cards like Mausoleum Secrets, Fiend Artisan and Diabolic Intent, which interact with the grave while not tutoring TO the grave. Dimir House Guard would still go here, since his tutor effect merely discards him, he IS a sac outlet, and many graveyard deck will still desire him for it.

Morophon, the Boundless is a must have in any pentacolor tribal deck. Reduces the Color cost of each elemental by 1 of each colored mana type in it's cost. It would makes cards like Flamekin Harbinger and Unsettled Mariner free to play. Smokebraider would help alleviate your land issues as well haha. Animar, Soul of Elements would further reduce mana costs and is just good in general haha. Yarok, the Desecrated is good, but only if you have more ETB effects.
