DemonDragonJ on Signature Spellbook: Chandra

The complete card list for this set has been revealed!

Apart from the cards that were previously revealed, the remaining six cards are:

Cathartic Reunion

Fiery Confluence

Pyroblast

Pyromancer Ascension

Rite of Flame

Young Pyromancer

Most of the cards in this set are nice, with only one or two feeling like filler, to me (which was the purpose of the Signature Spellbook series, since too many From the Vault sets had cards that were clearly less valuable or powerful than the other cards). Fiery Confluence is the best card in this set, since it was the most expensive, and, thus, in most need of a reprint, but none of the others were very rare or valuable, although that does not mean that they are filler.

Cathartic Reunion was an excellent choice, and the new artwork on Pyromancer Ascension is very nice, but why did WotC choose Pyroblast instead of Red Elemental Blast, when Signature Spellbook: Jace contained Blue Elemental Blast. Also, how could they not have chosen Chandra's Ignition for this set? The artwork that was used on Rite of Flame would have been perfect for that card, especially since RoF has no real connection to Chandra, because the flavor text relates to the ignition of her planewalker spark, and because the artwork clearly shows her planeswalker spark igniting.

The lack of Chandra's Regulator is very disappointing, since I think that that card would have looked great with the frame style that this set has, and I cannot understand why Young Pyromancer was not given new artwork, because, while the card is clearly meant to depict Chandra as a child or adolescent, the character looks nothing like Chandra.

What does everyone else say about this? What do you think of the card list for this set?

Ya, that's correct. The effect from Artificial Evolution is a text-changing effect, so the future tokens will be 1/1 Wizards (or whatever you choose) for as long as that Young Pyromancer is on that field. Once it leaves, that Pyromancer will make Elementals again.

Hope this helps!!

So my question is about the interaction between Artificial Evolution and cards like Young Pyromancer . If I chose to change the world elemental to wizard would Young Pyromamcer make 1/1 wizard tokens when I would cast an instant/sorcery. Ignoring the first elemental token made by Young pyromancer’s trigger by casting Artificial evolution of course.

Hi, I hope you are my friend and not a Clever Impersonator of him hacking his account. I’ve done a Frantic Search in your deck, but didn’t find the Elsha of the Infinite turns combo. Maybe the Orcish Librarian ate some pieces already?

Let me know if you want to do a Brainstorm session with me and do a Deep Analysis of the cards you chose, so you Think Twice about this combo of yours.

I would Cancel my plans for a Young Pyromancer like you and share my Chemister's Insight if that helps Increasing Devotion you have for this Devil's Play that we call Magic: the Gathering

I'm no Niv-Mizzet, Parun, you can count on me ;)

Bahoola on Kalamax

I was considering taking Kalamax down the elemental path and make him more combat oriented. With cards like Flamekin Harbinger (Cavalier shenanigans) - Forgotten Ancient - Malignus (fun with Fling/Soul's Fire/Chandra's Ignition) - Mulldrifter - Avenger of Zendikar - Omnath, Locus of Rage - Omnath, Locus of the Roil - Risen Reef - Young Pyromancer (and/or other elemental token makers). Still want a lot of spells (preferable instants) to cast.

If u not going elemental and still want creatures to attack with i would suggest token makers and some beefy boys, Rubblebelt Rioters comes to mind or card draw dudes like Oakhame Adversary

Side note, God-Eternal Kefnet is super for the dec no matter what your doing with it.

Remember that there is competitive modern and 'competitive modern'. There are things you can do at local FNM which doesn't hold up in bigger competitions. You don't have to plan for the entire meta, just the decks you are likely to face.

As someone new to more competitive settings trying to play off-meta, I highly rate transformative sideboards. You can improve almost any matchup by sideboarding 15 cards (or fourteen with companion), and viewing your maindeck as a place to store sideboard cards (which can be swapped in bad matchups).

As a deck which 'relies' on risen reef combo, put thought in your backup gameplan. Your Jegantha choice offers a backup combo with something like Freed from the Real, while only taking up four slots. This is the right direction, however in specific it faces the same problems- a weakness to removal- as the maindeck. Testing alternatives, both main and side will be most of the process for this.

Don't feel the need to settle into one list- unpredictablity is a major asset for every list that isn't already highly-tuned. Your opponent will misidentify control or beatdown matchups, netting easy wins, especially with sideboard mixups.

For a time, Voice of Resurgence was the big reason to play midrange, and its still pretty solid. Value with Vesperlark/thunderkin is decent if you can avoid grave hate- sideboarding in a set of mana leak/spell pierce is legit if they don't have a fast clock.

I'd also give some serious consideration to elemental token producers. Seasoned Pyromancer and Young Pyromancer are spectacular with reef and strong without.

Primal Beyond is good, non-painful mana fixing.

Finally, look at Jeskai Ascendancy combo lists. Its fallen out of favour due to disruptability, but faces a lot of the same deckbuilding restrictions you are under. Similarly, Reveillark/Body Double was a deck that never really took off. Runaway Steam-Kin had a few combos theory crafted that never made it. I'm sure there are things in these lists you can adapt. I'm sure that between all of these you can find something that runs nicely. Playtest well, and have fun.

multimedia on commanders for a token deck

Hey, I'm currently playing Kalamax, the Stormsire using a secondary token strategy.

You could play a main token strategy with Kalamax and The Locust God. Kalamax can act as a pseudo Parallel Lives affect with instant spells that create token since if he's tapped the first instant you cast each turn is copied. Many cards can repeatably for no mana cost create a token when you cast an instant or sorcery and you want to be casting instants with Kalamax. Instant draw spells are good with Kalamax. The doubling of draw is good with The Locust God who creates an Insect token when you draw a card. In my opinion getting token value on top of the value you already get from instants with Kalamax could make this a viable main strategy.

Some cards for a creature token strategy with Kalamax:
