Shock deals 2 damage to target creature, player or planeswalker.

Although it only does 2 damage, Shock might be a good addition. Plus, I already have Shock, which would be a bonus.

Very well done. This is how budget magic is played! I especially liked that you didn't splash white for Selesnya. If you are looking for a fun spell with a little more umph switching Shock for Flame Slash is fun, just for a suggestion! Deck doesn't need it but I felt bad commenting without offering something helpful. Please, Please, Please, keep building decks like this. Its what bring new people to magic and leaves veterans speechless on the table.

Thanks Skulloelegy! Predator's Gambit is just in there as an Unholy Strength that can occasionally help Ogre Marauder get through. Demonic Vigor is a great card though - I actually prefer it to Infernal Scarring , which would also open the two-drop spot for Dark Favor . I'll probably keep at least a few Supernatural Stamina in there though - unlike Demonic Vigor, it keeps your creature out on the board and can also just be a Shock to finish off the game.

The non-token creature for Scampering Scorcher (i.e. the base card) is an elemental creature type, therefore all three creatures created with the card gain haste until end of turn. The ability of Cavalcade of Calamity to push through damage even if the creatures are blocked is the reason that the 1 power creatures work in the build. With Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , all instances of damage from red sources will be increased by 2. This means all combat damage, triggers from Cavalcade of Calamity , or direct damage spells like Shock are boosted.
The ability to create 3 1/1s with haste for 4 mana isn't the most impactful 4 CMC play in standard, however the synergy of all the cards in the build make it very powerful. It is very common to play at least 1 unanswered copy of Cavalcade of Calamity or Torbran, Thane of Red Fell in a game, making Scampering Scorcher effectively a finisher.

ah i missed the "elementals gain haste" part. but the rest of my point still stands. a 4 mana creature does not want to be in Shock range.

Did you try to run with less lands? To me, the deck could do better with -1 Island .

mikeb388 The main focus of the deck is to take out the opponents creatures as they play them. Only using Shock to hit the player if you have a strong and established board. Otherwise keep it in your hand and use it to take out a creature your opponent plays. Yeah it's slow to really get the big guy out there but in my experience I've found that I can consistently keep the other player from building a threatening board. It's not conventional but it does work. I would also like to stress that this deck is built primarily for new players to MTG Arena who don't want to spend money on the game like myself.

As for the sideboard suggestions Fry used to be in over Shock and that's another I'm not sold on, just needs some testing. I haven't played enough with Aether Gust or Devout Decree to judge their worth, but at the moment Disenchant feels very out of place and might get swapped. And I hadn't ever considered Redcap Melee , another I have very little experience with how good it is but it could be worth a try.
