Nova Chaser

Creature — Elemental Warrior


Champion an Elemental (When this enters the battlefield, sacrifice it unless you remove another Elemental you control from the game. When this leaves the battlefield, that card returns to play.)

Even though it might not be on theme, Heirloom Blade is really good for damage boosts and putting more elementals into your hand; it just kind of just goes with any creature deck but especially if you're having to put a ton of fast-dying and cheap creatures out. A Chandra's Ignition -though a bit pricey- is also a good combo with a Nova Chaser, but I can see this deck falling apart a bit against burn spells.

Corpse Explosion and Supernatural Stamina are two cards that would go really well with this deck. Pull out a Nova Chaser, make it a 12/2 with a free revive. With all the cards like Thud, Temur Battle Rage and Corpse Explosion as follow ups or additions, you get a likely game-ender. Not to mention being able to sneak in the Chaser for no mana with the other suggestions in the comments.

Balaam__ you mentioned two things:

  1. An Elemental rampage approach

  2. And a lack of counter magic

If you choose to use Birds of Paradise then you open up access to:

And albeit this only aims at , still some good hard countering.

For elementals, boy howdy. Rather than waste your time with recommendations you won't use, I noticed you like a noticeable, definitive swing.

So I say Nova Chaser, just as a wink wink nudge nudge.

Best of luck with any variation you aim to use, but Temur () solves your issues with evasion and countering.

IHATENAMES, good call on CoCo - seems to be a wasted opportunity given what the deck is trying to do.

I do like the idea of Nova Chaser, will try to incorporate it into the deck to mitigate the loss of the other elementals.

I will playtest with Jaxis, the Troublemaker and see how it goes.

I built a naya deck similar to this based around Force of Savagery and ways to keep it alive Sylvan Anthem /reanimation/ and the like. Ball Lightning effects underrated.

A few notes:

Coco only works on your turn not opp endstep based on ball lightning effects end of turn wording.

My version had a elemental tribal subtheme with Nova Chaser attack with the awakener champion it and deal 10 w/trample is dope. Can also help give reach if you cast after combat to champion whatever you would have to sac to thunderkins ability

Commune with the Gods fills grave fast and helps find your awakener

Jaxis, the Troublemaker new card that may be a interesting addition to the deck.

Hey GrimlockVIII. These are both viable elementals, but I'd ditch Rakdos go mono red in that case. Paying with any other basic colors in the build can be punishing. Once you're cheating expensive creatures into play with Incandescent Soulstoke you can add other costly elementals like Nova Chaser.

Normally I do like Temur Battle Rage for what it does, but since all of your bombs already come with trample, I feel like Assault Strobe would be better here. Another possible swap is Smokebraider for Generator Servant . Braider can't help you cast Through the Breach but does stick around after creating mana, something that is especially valuable for Nova Chaser . You could also just run both by dropping something like the somewhat slow Rift Bolt or Tormenting Voice .
