Like fire? Why not consider becoming a Pyromaniac?

Flame Mastery (11th Level)
+2 to damage to all spells with the Fire keyword.

Burning Action (11th Level)
When you spend an action point to take an extra action, you also gain a +5 bonus to fire damage until the start of your next turn.

Fiery Vengeance (16th Level)
When you are first bloodied, you can use any spell with the fire keyword that is at least 2 levels below you on the creature that bloodied you as an instant reaction. The spell's AOE damage is not done, to the creatures around the target.

Fiery Vengance is broken as all hell. It needs to have a level cap for sure, and maybe some other restriction. Right now it is a free re-use of any of a ton of high level damage dailies. It also doesn't specify that a spell would have to only target the triggering creature, so the Wiz could use any AoE that includes the triggering creature as a target. How about letting the Pyromaniac spontaneously energy admix one spell that deals energy damage to also deal fire damage when he becomes bloodied until the end of his next turn?

Otherwise looks fun.

Better? The spell cannot use any splash element and must be 2 or more levels below you.
