I've always found it useful to drop a Stoneclaw totem, pull 2 or 3 mobs with LB, then drop a Fire Nova totem and/or magma totem. Good times for PvE

The threat concern is irrelevant, the reason Magma Totem has threat reduction and Fire Nova doesn't is that Fire Nova dies when it deals damage. Neither totem generates threat for you, they generate it only for the totem.This is especially important when you are AEing in a raid situation, as you can open up with AE totems without regard to threat, while the mages and locks have to wait a few seconds or risk death, at worst, your totem will die.

I wish people stopped giving bad advice in a tone that suggests they actually know what they're talking about. Fire nova, Searing and Magma totems very much generate threat for the caster and not for the totem itself. Try dropping a fire nova totem on MH trash before the tank has aggro and see how long you live. The answer, which I myself can give with some authority is unsurprisingly, not long.
