Ever seen an Temur elemental deck? They ramp fast, go wide, and then smash you with a bunch of 1 power elementals. What if I told you that you dont have to wait until you deck yourself before attacking with a bunch of power 1s, but instead can get all the ramp and combo you want and ALSO attack and end the game with a bunch of power 3s by turn 4. You doubt it? Just read on!
Sacrifice elementals with [[Neoform]] to get a fast [[Scampering Scorcher]], buff the attacking elementals with [[Creeping Trailblazer]] and [[Domri, Anarch of Bolas]], get the sacrificed elemementals back with [[Thunderkin Awakener]] and trigger [[Risen Reef]]. Amazing!
+ Fast ramp
+ Fast kills
+ Easy combos
+ Satisfying to play
[[Llanowar Elves]] - Ramp and [[Neoform]] fodder.
[[Leafkin Druid]] - Ramp and [[Neoform]] fodder.
[[Thunderkin Awakener]] - Return all the awesome elementals from the graveyard. Buff with [[Neoform]] or [[Omnath, Locus of the Roil]] to be able to bring back [[Creeping Trailblazer]].
[[Scampering Scorcher]] - The core card of the deck. Creates tokens, gives all elementals haste (!), triggers [[Risen Reef]] multiple time, and is overall just a pain in the neck for your opponents.
[[Risen Reef]] - Insance ramp, the reason elementals is a top choice to play. Very nice to get the triple trigger from [[Scampering Scorcher]].
[[Omnath, Locus of the Roil]] - Top-end elemental, this bad boy deals a lot of damage, can buff you elementals and draws cards later on.
[[Cloudkin Seer]] - Fooder for [[Neoform]] to get [[Scampering Scorcher]], also draws a card and bypasses defenses in some cases.
[[Neoform]] - A match made in hell with [[Thunderkin Awakener]]. I recommend the following sacrifice pairings:
[[Creeping Trailblazer]] - What is better than 1/1 elementals? 2/1 elementals! Note: Can't be brought back with [[Thunderkin Awakener]] by default.
[[Domri, Anarch of Bolas]] - What is better than 2/1 elementals? 3/1 elementals! Also ramp and anti-counter measures. Awesome!
[[Chandra, Acolyte of Flame]] - Experimental. Creates tokens ans allows re-cast of spells in graveyard.
[[Chandra, Awakened Inferno]] - Waifu Nightmore for control decks, clears the board of non-elementals, applies more pressure
[[Negate]] - Filler. Single copy in the main-deck, good in almost any matchup.
[[Lightning Strike]] - Filler. The good ol' three to the face.
Green > Red > Blue.
Green is needed for the fast ramp, red for dealing damage, blue for some combo pieces. The [[Unclaimed Territory]] solves the problem with blue elementals and you should be able to find the missing blue mana source by the time you need it for [[Neoform]].
Disclaimer: The mana base still needs work, but I just dont own the rare lands I need to perform the necessary trial-and-error.
Nothing special, just countering all the common threats.
[[Negate]] - Counter pesky planeswalkers and board-clear
[[Aether Gust]] - Good-bye Dinosaurus-san. The time you get is enough to win the game in most cases.
[[Fry]] - The reason why Teferi is black This spell is useful against blue and white creatures and planeswalkers.
[[Veil of Summer]] - Dont look at my hand! Against [[Thought Erasure]] and other nasty spells.
[[Overgrowth Elemental]] - Good against RDW because they are slightly faster than we are. Swappable with [[Cloudkin Seeker]].
[[Cavalier of Thorns]] - The "best" mythic elemental. Powers [[Thunderkin Awakener]] and gets back important stuff. End-point for the [[Neoform]] engine.
[[Cavalier of Flame]] - Experimental. More aggressive than [[Cavalier of Thorns]].
[[Teferi's Time Twist]] - Save a [[Risen Reef]] and kickstart the value chain again or bounce a [[Omnath, Locus of the Roil]] for more damage. The possibilities are endless! (Too slow?)
Thanks for reading and I hope you have as much fun as I have with this deck. The mana base and the sideboard are not set in stone yet, feel free to change them freely. If I missed something useful If you have suggestions feel free to suggest, if you have comments feel free to comment. Cheers!
