Quote from Mergatroid_Jones »I think generally Chandra's Spitfire will play better than Wildfire Elemental almost every time if what you care about is optimal card choice.
Try the card!! You clearly want to. I'd be interested in hearing the results.
Quote from MarthMarthMarth »
Honestly, if you want to trigger elemental in a token-friendly way, can't go wrong with the classic goblin bombardment. It's asking you to play tokens already, is good even without the elemental, and can be really explosive. Wait until they declare blocks and then blow them out.
Quote from Mergatroid_Jones »
All that said, I've been really disappointed with Curse of Chains. It gets picked highly because it's hybrid removal, but it often works poorly in practice, especially with my minor untapper archetype. I don't have any other good non-gold cards in Azorius other than Aethertow and Sejiri Merfolk, so I may be interested in getting something else (inexpensive) to fill that gap. What would you guys suggest in that slot? Dovin? Is Aethertow good? Are there other good off-color mono cards that I may have missed in Azorius?
Quote from MarthMarthMarth »Seems... bad. Also, are you planning to have an army of specifically high-toughness creatures out when you activate pyrohemia? Because otherwise I doubt it will work out well for you.
Quote from JovianHomarid »Get revised ones!
Quote from VariSami »On the topic of Wildfire Elemental: Needs Trample. I actually have a casual Chandra's Spitfire deck planned, and that card can even be decent in Peasant thanks to the various spellslingers and other pingers you can run. But the evasion it has in the form of flying is really key to that.
Edit: Oh, wow - all your creatures? That is actually pretty interesting as a potential archetype support thing.
Quote from Leelue »I dont remember saying that I don't like cloud of faeries because it's free.
I do think that it is a terrible play. In most games, it is essentially suntail hawk except it misses a point of damage from the beginning.
Quote from Blueduck »Treefolk is interesting. Have you mentioned that in years past? I know I would find it interesting if the final 2014 optimal cube used different archetypes from years past. Let's get some variety!
