I had removed the description because my friend made fun of me. But, forget my friend according to the comments. We both enjoyed that, so thank you.
I've been trying pretty hard to make a flamestoker control that isn't in these colors, but every shell I came up with seemed awful by comparison. The deck has been doing better than I thought it would. Playing overpowered 1 cost removal and a ton of aoe to deal with aggro, then 4 vanquish and 6 harsh rules to deal with the mid game.
I thought that running 4 cookbooks would make the deck overly susceptible to relic hate; instead, it has ended up helping more than hurting. People often waste bore and other removal on the cookbooks. Red market seems great, but the lack of aegis makes it much worse in an otherwise unitless deck. The armor from Sword of the Skyking will close out aggro matches if they drag out. There are some cute interactions where Flamestoker turns hailstorms, runehammer, and torches into effective removal against bigger units. A lot of the success is probably because my opponents never realised what they were playing against. Finally, Maul is necessary, because… maul.
