Light Up the Stage


Spectacle (You may cast this spell for its spectacle cost rather than its mana cost if an opponent lost life this turn.)

Exile the top two cards of your library. Until the end of your next turn, you may play those cards.

If Chandra's Incinerator is your plan, I'd suggest adding Seal of Fire. T1 seal of fire into turn 2 crack it, and cast Skewer the Critics for a turn 2 Chandra's Incinerator. You already have Rift Bolt to enable the t2 Incinerator, but redundancy is key ;)

Seal of Fire also enables Light Up the Stage very well, to help out with casting your spells before combat, so you get maximum advantage out of prowess on your Monastery Swiftspear.

Edit - sniped a bit ^^

You probably want to be playing Seal of Fire so that you can more reliably cast Chandra's Incinerator on turn 2.

Personally i’d ditch all the Light Up the Stage - they’re a bit to clumsy for burn decks

I replaced Boros Charm, Lightning Helix, and Deflecting Palm. Switched them out with Atarka's Command, and Play with Fire. Removed Risk Factor and Light Up the Stage. Put into play Yavimaya Iconoclast and Black Market Tycoon. Got rid of Satyr Firedancer. I'm not asking if it looks fun, haha. I'm wondering if it's so-called competitive.

9-lives modern is a format with fetchlands - your opponent will be effectively starting on 17-18 life even if they're trying to be conservative as possible with how they fetch lands.

I know very well how burn works, I've played it many times before, and played against it incredibly frequently. I've won a bunch of tournaments so have a pretty-good idea of what i'm talking about here.

There is a reason that no competitive burn deck is playing either Risk Factor or Light Up the Stage - and it's not because every-other burn player has been lobotomized. You're suggesting that your barely-played homebrew is more justified than the collective efforts of every-other competitive burn player on the planet - and that is an absurd call to make.

Wow. wallisface You are not familiar with the playstyle of burn decks, then. Usually it goes like this:

draw lands, draw burn spells, play burn spell #1 taking 3 damage to the opponent. Your opponent does something on his turn. Do the same thing again, playing 2 burn spells. Opponent has at least 9 life missing. Repeat. Play at most 3 burn spells. 18 life missing. Run out of cards. Wonder why you aren't drawing burn spells. Need burn spells! NEED BURN SPELLS!

This is why Risk Factor and Light Up the Stage are so useful. There's no doubt that, logically, you're going to run out of cards in hand faster than your ability to keep them at-hand. There's no way anyone is going faster than this, unless there is ramping or something.

Also, you may be thinking that Rift Bolt, Skewer the Critics and Light Up the Stage are costly, but if you see the cards, they are allowed to be casted as . This might be why you're saying that my deck isn't aggro enough??

I wonder whether Embercleave could have a home here. Memnite might trump ornithopter as well since it doesn't rely on pump spells to do damage. Light Up the Stage to refuel? Also, Blinkmoth Nexus might be better here given that you really aren't trying the poison game - more damage.
