How it Works

If you rate my deck I will rate yours.


The basic idea for this deck is to take advantage of all the evoke elementals by championning them with Nova Chaser Buy, hasting/sacking them with Incandescent Soulstoke Buy, bringing them back from graveyard with Horde of Notions Buy or blinking them with Turn to Mist Buy. Damage is mainly done with Nova Chaser Buy, Reveillark Buy and Spawnwrithe Buy, but once Vigor Buy is out, Everyone can contribute Happy

Flamekin Harbinger Buy: Used to get whichever elemental is needed
Smokebraider Buy: Mana acceleration
Bloom Tender Buy: Mana acceleration and/or combo with Horde of Notions Buy.
Incandescent Soulstoke Buy: Used to trigger the evokes and attack hasted for only {1}{R}.
Nova Chaser Buy: Used in conjunction with Incandescent Soulstoke Buy to champion an 'Evoke' elemental in play so it comes back in play at the end of the turn while attacking for 11 Trample all for {1}{R}. Best card to champion is Flamekin Harbinger Buy since you can go get another Nova Chaser Buy when it comes back into play and repeat the process next turn. This is the main way to deal damage to the other players.
Turn to Mist Buy: Combine with evokes to activate 'comes into play' abilities twice, and leaves play abilities once while keeping the creature in play.
Reveillark Buy: Bring back 2 'Evoke' cards from the graveyard to trigger their abilities. Best cards to get is Flamekin Harbinger Buy and Mulldrifter Buy so you can put any card on the top of your library and then draw 2 cards.
Horde of Notions Buy: Bring back 'Evoke' cards from the graveyard as needed.
Vigor Buy: Used to pump/protect all my creatures on the board. Optionally, Can be used with Incandescent Soulstoke Buy as a surprise after the player has declared blockers, or before the attack for some trample damage.
Mulldrifter Buy: Draw cards
Spitebellows Buy/Shriekmaw Buy: Removal
***Spawnwrithe Buy: Great card to use with Incandescent Soulstoke Buy at the right moment. Can get out of hand for your opponent VERY quickly. Especially when he's a 3/3 or greater.


Manabase currently works perfectly so if you have any suggestions for other cards/combos or just comments in general, they are all welcome!
