Bloodsoaked Champion Discussion

I recommend that you add either some mana fixing or a playset of evolving wilds/ terramorphic expanse, most of the cards in this deck require the high cost of double white or double black or black white, this can jam you up if you get a random run of all white or all black mana. Also your low curve cards should be in playset of 4, so you see them reliably. Also your sac outlet should probably include a 1 drop zombie with recursion or a 1 drop warrior with recursion. Bloodsoaked Champion, Sanitarium Skeleton Extort is really fun once you dial it in! Keep at it!

Consider dropping the following:
Derevi, Empyrial Tactician - not a Warrior
Boros Signet, Selesnya Signet & Gruul Signet - weak color fixing and better use of sleeves.
Bident of Thassa - not sure, seems kinda weak but it may be better in your deck.
Bear Umbra - cute aura, but aura's are weak in multipler unless your playing aura voltron.
Sosuke, Son of Seshiro - you aren't making snakes. I know that the destroy a creature is nice, but deathtouch does effectively the same thing.
Warriors to consider:
Mardu Woe-Reaper, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk, Wild Nacatl, Blood-Chin Fanatic, Ogre Marauder, Brutal Hordechief, Drumhunter, Wolfir Silverheart
Glistener Elf - for those times when you really HAVE to but don't want to.....
Patriarch's Bidding - the best tribal recursion spell
Bloodsoaked Champion & Reassembling Skeleton - skullclamp or chump block all day long.
Surrak Dragonclaw & Yasova Dragonclaw - Because why not?
Imperious Perfect & Nacatl War-Pride - tokens!
Brion Stoutarm - fling!
Cliffhaven Vampire - this could be a combo piece....
Herald of Secret Streams - ahahahahahahaha Bramblewood Paragon has a best friend
There are more Warriors to consider, but I wanted to focus on some utility that you may have overlooked.
Here are some lands you may have overlooked: Unclaimed Territory, Opal Palace, Reflecting Pool

As far as decks that benefit from sacrificing your own stuff, there are lots of half decent aristocrats lists. Bloodbriar likely would not make the cut in any of these, but cards like Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Falkenrath Aristocrat, Cartel Aristocrat, Bloodthrone Vampire, Viscera Seer, Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Doomed Traveler, Abzan Ascendancy, Bridge from Below, Kitchen Finks, Blisterpod, Bloodsoaked Champion, Tukatongue Thallid, Bloodghast, Gravecrawler, Voice of Resurgence, Young Wolf, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Tidehollow Sculler, and Rally the Ancestors are all cards I would look at.
EDIT: Scapeshift wins in the aptly named "Scapeshift" or "TitanShift" (which also uses Primeval Titan) decks by ramping to 7 lands and shifting into 6 mountains and a Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle for 18 damage -- usually enough to kill most decks. If they have not yet taken damage for some reason, then going up to 8 lands for 7 mountains and a Valakut will hit for 21.

I'd recommend leaning a bit more into the sacrifice theme with cards like Farhaven Elf, Eternal Witness, Anger, Nether Traitor, Bloodghast, and Bloodsoaked Champion to help ease out an otherwise rather high curve, and to give you some easy sacrifice fodder for the big man himself.
Lurking Predators, and Panharmonicon are personal favourites of mine in permanent heavy decks as you tend to have a lot of creatures with enter effects, such as Woodfall Primus, Terastodon, Solemn Simulacrum, or Wall of Blossoms.
Birthing Pod is an obvious auto-include if your plan is to cheat in large creatures, as you can then use those large creatures to cheat in larger creatures, over and over again.
Anyways, that's all I got. Good luck with the deck, and I hope it all works out for you in your games.

I would drop a Swamp and an Underworld Connections, love the card, but I don't think it does enough in this deck. Dark Deal would be a sweet combo, but that's about it. The devotion is nice, but if you don't have turn one Ritual, but Bloodsoaked Champion is a recursive threat for little mana and is aggressive.

Hi, as a fellow Rakdos Burn Player I'd like to offer a couple of suggestions to improve the deck, while still staying low on budget. I would cut most of the Three-Drops to improve the overall speed of the deck, killing the opponent quickly is the main advantage and appeal of playing any Burn List.I would especially lower the number of expensive creatures, the Guttersnipes in particular, but I think the Elementals and the Shredfreaks could be replaced as well.
I personally also feel that a Dark Confidant-like card benefits the Strategy and is one of the main draws to include Black in Burn. There are a variety of creatures that provide a similar effect and are very budget-friendly: Blood Scrivener, Asylum Visitor, Pain Seer, Ruin Raider. However, I had the most success with Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, which has menace to boot, supported by Gonti's Machinationss and Aether Hubs. Removing these creatures will be a high priority for your opponents, making Claim to Fame very powerful, bringing back your card advantage-tools.
I would also relegate the Terminates to the Sideboard and instead play Searing Blood in the Main, especially since you are running a playset of Graven Cairns. On a similar note, Sign in Blood could also be considered, since it does not only provide further provide card draw, but can be aimed at the opponent to deal 2 damage to the opponent in a pinch.
In terms of spells, I would definitely improve the number of Lightning Bolt-Effects. Shard Volley, Collateral Damage and Burst Lightning are fine options. And since you are willing to also play Sovereign's Bite, you might want to look into Two-Drop Burn Spells as well: Lightning Strike, Searing Spear, Incinerate, Incendiary Flow are all serviceable Burn. I would not cut the Bump in the Night for Sovereign's Bite, though. One Mana Burn is so much more important than the three Life gained. Playing both should be good, though.
And finally, I would drop the Lootings and Duresses from the Sideboard. You rarely have the time to spend your first turn looking at their hand, despite it being basically the only answer Rakdos has to cards like Worship or enchantments in general. I feel it is just too much of a tempo loss. And you can just make them lose life with Bump instead of dealing damage to them anyways. Instead I would propose you look into Molten Rain to fight Tron- and Utopia Sprawl-Decks and add more Rakdos Charms or Smash to Smithereens to fight artifacts.

A couple of comments on the deck. First, you're running some cards that are just overall weak or don't do enough in your deck. Dominus of Fealty is going to be very difficult to play on or near on curve for a BR deck, and doesn't do enough when it is on the board. Vexing Devil doesn't really work for your deck because you don't have enough direct damage to make the 4 damage threatening. Dire Fleet Daredevil, Nightveil Specter, and Hell's Caretaker are all slow cards that don't really justify themselves in your deck (dire fleet could make the final cut, but it would require other cards to make it work and I think your money and card slots are better spent elsewhere). Second, if you don't draw both halves of your deck it can just collapse on itself, and the deck does absolutely nothing against non-creature decks. I would recommend putting in sacrifice fodder such as Bloodsoaked Champion, Mogg War Marshal, Pawn of Ulamogand Doomed Dissenter. This both makes your sacrifice outs live if you don't have your stealing cards, and allows you to apply pressure if you don't have creatures to steal. Anything that produces tokens, has undying/persist, or has a good death trigger will work for this. If you can fit an infinite combo into here, I would, but I don't know if BR has one, especially a budget one. Like the idea.
