Flamekin Harbinger

Creature — Elemental Shaman

When Flamekin Harbinger enters the battlefield, you may search your library for an Elemental card, reveal it, then shuffle your library and put that card on top of it.

Village Rites seems better than Thrill of Possibility, what do you think ?
Also you have only 3x Spark Elemental in your 1-Drop slot, I recommend cutting Viashino Sandsprinter and adding Flamekin Harbinger for a better curve.

I love this deck idea, its one of my favorite!

Here is what I did; I went Mardu for Spark Trooper (lifegain) and some other artifact/enchantment removal options. I know you specified that the Trooper is missed by Unearth but it is not missed by Thunderkin Awakener or Flamekin Harbinger (tutor). My deck is so aggressive that I personally found that my graveyard could run dry, especially when Thunderkin was doing his job, making Unearth sometimes not helpful. So, I focus on Thunderkin as a main reanimation strategy with Unearth being backup.

Speaking of Unearth, may I suggest using the new on-theme version: Unearth

I found that drawing into new elementals was very important so that my graveyard could be full. But I do this by playing the elementals, not discarding them. To do this I decided to use a card I've always wanted to make work in a deck: Infiltration Lens. this card is really nice because Thunderkin must attack to trigger and him getting blocked is most likely how he’ll die. When he is equipped with the lens, your opponent must choose between a second graveyard elemental (next turn) or two new cards from your library. You can easily draw into more trample elementals or maybe another Thunderkin or an Unearth to reanimate Thunderkin. This repeatable draw gets out of hand really quick.

I also use Stigma Lasher to help fill the early game but he also shuts down lifegain decks by turn 3. Infiltration Lens equipped to him is also hilarious.

I just recently replaced Double Cleave (the double strike strategy) with the newly reprinted Twinflame. It makes sense to also use Twinflame on Thunderkin Awakener where double strike didn't. Its kind-of like a 2drop (with "strive") Unearth; it helps emphasize Thunderkin being my main strategy.

I also recently started using Bone Shards because, as other users have pointed out, you can discard to use it before combat or use it after combat and sacrifice one of the elementals that will self-sac anyways.

Anyways, If you are interested, here is the link to my deck for reference.

Hello friend :) I love your deck, almost as much as I love Ball Lightning!! I have 3 thoughts on your deck:

1) I love it!

2) It seems like a elemental deck so, maybe you can ponder to add Flamekin Harbinger, Hellspark Elemental and Spark Elemental

3) lagotripha has a good point with Lightning Skelemental, if you manage to get the grixis mana base the reward can be awesome, Unearth is great to reanimate balls

You could also do 4 Flamekin Harbinger to find your Rage Forgers

I really like the Bone Shards idea! I think it may be better than the Tragic Slip. I will move the Tragic Slip to the side board and main board Bone Shards to see how it goes.

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.

If you can find space in the budget by using the cheapest cards like Crash Through , Young Pyromancer is probably the best way to push this list to competitive.

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.
