Hellkite Igniter

Creature — Dragon

Flying, haste

: Hellkite Igniter gets +X/+0 until end of turn, where X is the number of artifacts you control.

ldvatwa it is tons of fun. I am a bit of a Timmy/Spike; I love actually making "Timmy" strategies work, so it's really gratifying to cheat out giant constructs and stuff. Blowing out a player with a discounted, hasty Hellkite Igniter--and using my remaining mana on it's firebreathing three times--is the tops. Cheating giant spells rarely gets old, so doing it in a less traditional shell is great. It really is one of my favorite decks to pilot.

I love how the servo- and thopter-focus gives great blocking for my commander; we all know the downfalls of planeswalker commanders and Saheeli protects herself well.

I love how Kaladesh-focused I can make this deck without sacrificing much power at all.

I was also not sure about Mirror March but I wanted to try it at least one time. Getting more than 1 Utvara Hellkite or Terror of the Peaks is bonkers. Normally I had Gate to the AEther in this spot, which was not strong but leads to the next section:

Gate to the AEther, Guild Feud and Pandemonium are there mostly to make the game more interesting for others too. I add and remove them based on the power level of the playgroup.

Shadowspear is amazing, love the suggestion!

I had a Moonveil Dragon but I never fetched it because I never had more than 3 creatures on board (and if I do I'm often about to win), whereas I often have more than 3 artifacts on board for Hellkite Igniter, and it has helped me get a couple surprise wins.

A Zirilan OG! Your list is 2 years older than mine.

Cut Guild Feud (too situational)

Cut Mirror Match (too random/not a token strategy)

Cut Pandemonium (Terror of the Peaks and Warstorm Surge do it better)

Cut Hellkite Igniter Add Moonveil Dragon

Shadowspear > Basilisk Collar

Hello friend! I have some suggestions! I had way too much time today, so here you go.

Relatively cheap, potent, and just perfect upgrades.

This bit is, of course, focused on making as many treasures as your board can bear.

Great, now you have all of these treasures, now what are you going to do with them?

  • Frogmite, Lens Flare, Scale of Chiss-Goria, Tooth of Chiss-Goria, Mycosynth Golem, Slag Strider, Furnace Dragon, and Myr Enforcer are all notable cards you could add, since they pretty much become free after a while, though mostly pretty useless.

  • Forsworn Paladin is pretty good token generation early game, but really shines with the second ability where it can instantly punish anyone blocking or attacking you recklessly.

  • Marionette Master is going to pack a punch.

  • Dargo, the Shipwrecker is super cheap for a 7/5 with trample.

  • Enraged Giant, Freejam Regent, Battle at the Bridge, Saheeli's Directive, Herald of Anguish, and Organic Extinction are all pretty solid additions, since they don’t make you sacrifice anything in exchange for it.

  • Ruthless Technomancer has a million combos with (like Dockside Extortionist+sac outlet) and is just pretty good on its own.

  • Leonin Elder is just one life, but when you’re playing a treasure deck, that one life will definitely add up.

  • Underhanded Designs is a murder or a poke engine, which is very snazzy.

  • Glaze Fiend is pretty scary, considering that it has trample.

  • Dragonspark Reactor could be a bit of removal in your back pocket or your wincon.

  • Arcbound Crusher’s design team didn’t anticipate just how many artifacts I was planning on throwing onto the field.

  • Professional Face-Breaker is just like Grim Hireling, in that it makes treasure tokens, but more importantly, it gives you something else. You get a load of impulse draw, which is really nice when you have loads of mana.

  • Magda, Brazen Outlaw is just an artifact tutor, really. Though, there are plenty of treasure loving dragons you could also fish for. (:

  • Kalain, Reclusive Painter loves treasures, giving everyone big buffs.

  • Swashbuckler Extraordinaire can give anything that might be sensitive to dying double strike for a big final push. That, or just give one big boy double strike.

  • Their Number is Legion gets you lots of life and lots of tokens.

  • Necron Overlord is just a worse Ghirapur, but it’s still gonna hurt.

  • Street Urchin is the same idea as the above.

  • Armix, Filigree Thrasher could be some annoying removal, especially early game.

  • Hellkite Igniter is a big boy that, if left unblocked, could be a one hit kill.

  • Feedback Bolt is a big, powerful spell. To put it simply: ouch.

  • Fain, the Broker can make treasures, can make +1/+1’s, and can make little spooky boys. The best type of boys. Great utility and variety overall.

  • Rain of Riches is big. One cascading spell a turn, whichever one you want? Imagine dropping Feedback Bolt and cascading into Hellkite Igniter.

  • Captain Lannery Storm is innocent… Until you leave her unblocked like a dummy.

  • Concussive Bolt can be an easy kill, letting you get as much damage as you want through.

  • Dispense Justice is just like saying “Fuck your voltron.”

  • It seems you also like having and sacrificing constructs, so here’s a bit to let you do more of that, if you’d prefer to have a construct deck over a treasure token deck.

    • Shared Animosity will give constructs a boost, but there really isn’t a specific theme across creature types aside from that, and your constructs are better used for chump blocking or just turning them into scrap. Ignore this if you’re going for more of a construct tribal sort of thing.

    • Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  Flip is a good card, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think it’s really necessary.

    • Rakdos Charm could be replaced with something better as far as artifact removal or graveyard hate. Nihil Spellbomb would be good graveyard hate and Generous Gift is just a good white staple.

    • Comet Storm is fun, but Crackle with Power is more fun.

    Thanks for the advise everyone! Out of all of the Firebreathing cards recommended, I would say Hellkite Overlord and Hellkite Igniter are my two favorites to add. I had considered adding them in the original 99 but opted against it in fear that they might sit around in my hand, however I really liked them for the flavor/fun factor. After I play at my LGS tomorrow I will probably add these in by cutting a treason card or sacrifice card. I prefer these Firebreathing dragons over the other Firebreathing suggestions because they have haste as well.

    I don't know how Crashing Drawbridge didn't make it on my list, it was on my clipboard but got lost in the shuffle. Thanks for the reminder :)

    Hellkite Igniter -> for a hefty price of 5RR and with a couple of treasures on the battlefield this could one-shot someone on the same turn you play it.
