Ash Zealot Discussion

Ill try to keep budget low, I dont know how good you want this deck to be, but we can definitely make it pretty nasty on a budget aside from mana base. I personally think you should focus on B/W/R This gives you good draw, good stax peices, and extra combat turns. Some of these cards have alternate prints that are a bit cheaper. But i think this is a good start

Meekstone Since you get untap effects, should really help slow others down. Add in some other stax peices as you get budget if you want to keep tuning it, but alot of good stax cards are a little higher costed

You should try out Goblin Chainwhirler instead of Rabblemaster. She combos nicely with Soul-Scar Mage and with her first strike, she can kill creatures up to 6 toughness when combined with a bolt. I would also recommend some number of Ash Zealot, maybe taking out 2 Searing Blood.

Chandra, Torch of Defiance is just a better abbot. Cavern of Souls just seems awkward for the amount of non human things as well. Also, I would highly recommend more graveyard hate. Ash Zealot does not hurt delve decks and decks like hollowed one tend to be fast enough that the 3 damage won't be hurting them. Maybe Rampaging Ferocidon in the sideboard? A lot of decks will side in lifegain to counteract the burn spells or cards so they cannot be targeted.

I would actually add the Meddling Mage s to the main board. I would take out the Xathrid Necromancer s entirely, or just put them in that hot sideboard. I like Knight of the Holy Nimbus but I don't think he is that strong, instead, I would go with something more versatile like Phantasmal Image . However, if you keep nimbus, I might addAryel, Knight of Windgrace . Ash Zealot is my home slice but you might want to consider other options, like maybe moving Kambal, Consul of Allocation to the sideboard. baird, steward of argaive seems right up your alley. Benalish Marshall , Kwende, Pride of Femeref . Damping Sphere

* please note that this post isn't about a specific deck, but they were inspired by my putting together a mono red burn deck which can be found here. Obviously any thoughts on it are welcome in this thread or on its page - thanks.
I had a few questions for those who may have played Modern Burn competitively and recently.
I understand why Goblin Guide is such a staple, but it appears that Eidolon of the Great Revel has become one as well, and I'm not entirely sure why. On the surface, sure, it makes your opponent damage himself in order to do anything which accelerates the hurt, but at the same time, every single card in your deck will do the same to you, and staying just barely ahead of his life count seems like a dangerous way to go. Moreover, it seems like the two cards mentioned actually have negative synergy, with Guide helping your opponent get out the mana he needs to circumvent the Eidolon as soon as possible.
Another question would be what the best replacements for Goblin Guide would be in a budget burn deck? Vexing Devil comes to mind, but its not much cheaper. Perhaps 3x Spark Elemental and 1x Grim Lavamancer? I considered Ash Zealot but I like the recursion of Hellspark Elemental and even Faithless Looting, which brings me to another question...
Why doesn't Modern Burn have any card draw? Specifically with spells like Browbeat and then there's Faithless Looting out there to pump up your Monastery Swiftspear while finding you just the card you need? Isn't there the very real possibility that your burn will just peter out right before the more popular combo decks or swarm decks get going? It seems to me that card draw, along with Magma Jet is seriously overlooked in the current meta, but I could be wrong...
Its been a long time since I've played Burn and I'm trying to get my head around some of the particulars of the current environment. Thanks in advance!

I don't think that Chancellor of the Forge would fit here. I would be looking for more ramp instead of racing to get the opponent down to zero life. Spikeshot Elder could make it into the sidebar in case I need another win condition. Hellrider is a pretty good call out, as it activates other abilities in the deck as well. However if I'm just looking for more cards that activate other abilities in play, Ash Zealot might be better.
