I don't think that deck which plays only 1 and 2 drops needs 21 lands.
I would maybe go like this with lands:
4x Blood Crypt
=18 Lands which is enough i think

3-1 split of Blackcleave Cliffs - Concealed Courtyard.. Maybe only 3 total? Just seems odd running more than 2 of each shock to me. Especially since your at 21 instead of 25 lands, Id think it would be less of a concern that it come into play tapped at some point.

I have proxies for all of them, before that it was all Blackcleave Cliffs and stuff I had money for, trust me. Proxies for the win, plus my store let's you play them. If I had to go to a tournament... I'd either be broke or play blue steel, which has a lot of nice cheap Island, haha.

Well, since you asked...
I think maybe you might do better with a list based on the current performing BW Eldrazi builds, which have Path and often Tidehollow Sculler to synergize with Strangler, and Lingering Souls just seems better than Hangarback Walker I'd say.
I would lose the two maindeck Ratchet Bombs for a couple more three drops like those I suggested if I were to play this deck. I might do the same with the Bolts, or with one Terminate, to get a third or fourth threat in there too.
I'd also change up the mana base to have a minimum of 17 lands that could work together in any combination to cast T2 Terminate--17 is actually a little low but I think it would work out OK. Something like this land package:
- 4x Eldrazi Temple
- 4x Sulfurous Springs
- 4x Blackcleave Cliffs
- 4x Blood Crypt
- 1x Graven Cairns
- 2x Bloodstained Mire
- 2x Swamp
- 1x Mountain
- 2x Mutavault
Though that is 24 lands, also. You could ditch the Mutavaults for Ghost Quarters or otherwise mess around a little there, but I wouldn't get the colored sources too far from where they are above or I think you're likely to have real consistency issues with your dual-color spells.
You can check out a thread about BW Eldrazi on MTGSalvation.com if you're interested.

Nice deck +1 from me. I'm a huge Burn fan and have tried many varieties to get it right. I agree with the comments above, a few Blackcleave Cliffs would go a long way in reducing the damage you deal yourself, especially with running Eidolon.Another card you might want to try is Gonti's Machinations as a black version of Lightning Helix considering you're running so many fetchlands, as a way to gain you some life back.
Would be interested to know how you've found Bump in the Night, and if the flashback has ever been relevant.Please check out my iterations of the Burn archetype; Boros Burn, Naya Burn and Mardu BurnBest of luck with the deck !

On the topic of Rift Bolt. I hate how you have to wait till the next turn for the damage to go through. Sometimes you have two lands and a Rift Bolt and you want to win the game immediately but you can't.
I also might swap a couple of fetch lands for Blackcleave Cliffs this weekend and see how it goes.

You may want to make a few changes to this list if you want to finish 1st in a local event. I'd start by going up to 4 Rift Bolts and removing the Aphotic Wisps. I know burn gets blocked by big creatures, but lately the big creatures that see play are black (Death's Shadow, Gurmag Angler, etc) so the wisps aren't as good. I'd also go up to the full set of Eidolons in place of a Shard Volley. It just hoses some decks (UR Gifts Storm in particular). You're running so many fetchlands, but since you're only 2 colors and your list doesn't include Grim Lavamancer, you could shave a few of them for 2-3 Blackcleave Cliffs to give you a few % points in the mirror match or against other aggressive decks. The boros versions have made the swap to using a number of Inspiring Vantages, and after testing it out I can understand why. There's also nothing holding you back from throwing in a single Stomping Ground for a set of Destructive Revelry in your SB to battle decks packing Leyline of Sanctity, since that card is quite brutal against burn normally. Hope some of that makes sense and good luck!
