Can you say mimic vat?
or how bout Incandescent Soulstoke and assault strobe?
Because I always like to win more than necessary.

@Mysteric: It doesn't HAVE to be... you could sacrifice the Chaser instead.

But yeah, practically speaking.

Also, want FUN TIMES? Put this on a Mimic Vat while you have an evoking creature out.

In fact you can use that as a way to cheat them into play (although they're usually not significantly cheaper, but it's still fun); evoke a creature, then in response to its sacrifice clause, pull the chaser off the vat. Boom, 10/2 trample haste, and when it dies you get your evoke creature again.

You can also do similar things with Kiki-Jiki, Splinter Twin, and such things, of course, but Mimic Vat is a bit more stable since the chaser doesn't have to survive.

Good fun when used with Pandemonium.

I love dropping this on a harbinger.

"I swing."
"I block with X creature, and take X damage. Nova Chaser dies."
"Harbinger comes into play. I choose Nova Chaser."

This is usually how my elemental deck plays out lol. I have a lot of other creatures in there, but if I get even one harbinger in opening hand, it's Nova Chaser until dead :-)

Play Pandemonium for some pandemonium.

What a great card. Throw it on a harbinger, and your "champion" mecanic just became an advantage. Anyway, great art, great flavor, 5/5.

Play shared animosity, and put elemental mastery on this guy. Swing with 10 10/1's!!!

Turn 1: Harbinger
Turn 2: Pyretic in Incandescent
Turn 3: Incandescent into Nova Chaser (Champion the Harbinger), Swing and Fling, Harbinger hits play again, 22 Damage ending turn 3 w/ a repeat of Nova Chaser to come.

@MadTheorist... when did magic stop being about winning?

you dont really need more than a half decent hand to get one of these out by turn 3/4. and even if they opponent does everything they can to stop it, thats resources that they would just be using somewhere else. short of four lightning bolts, how else do you propose to do 10 damage so efficiently with only 4 mana and 1(2 i suppose because of the champion) cards?

This equip with Runechanter's Pike would make her menacing elemental arm a superior psychotic thing. Run a few Fire Servant, make unearthly elemental burn deck.
