No... getting rid of the red spells is not... bleh. Elves are for nothing but mana generation. for more powerful spells. It's supposed to be a burn deck... but instead of 7 hits of 3 each... I do 2 hits for 15 each. A few elves... preist of titania... vitalize... each of my elves are worth 3 mana each... plus the lands I used to bring 'em out. By the time you get enough mana for a wrath of God
, you should be almost dead.
It's pretty easy:
Turn 1: Put out a land and an elf
Turn 2: Put out another land, tap all three to put out 3 mana more worth of elf.
Turn 3: Put out another land, you should have about 7 mana to bring out more elves, or a mini fireball
Turn 4: Your opponant has enough mana for wrath of God
... so you tap a butt load of elves for mana, vitalize, tap 'em all again, tap all your lands, kill 'em with a blaze/lava/torch/fireball.
If they survive... do it again next turn.
So... I don't want anything in the deck that doesn't give mana (I'll probably even ditch wellwisher
... but... but... eh)
And I'd be fine with demonfire over a blaze... Doesn't really matter though between any of the (X)+(red) spells... but demonfire's $11.49... Only reason there's a Birds of paradise in there is because I was given one yesterday... not sure why... they just sort of handed me one.
