kamarupa hey thanks for the input! I like Ratchet Bomb and Everlasting Torment as options in the side board. Will add. You think Sign in Blood is better than Plunge into Darkness ? I looked at it and I figured plunge was more flexible, but I'm not sure. Bump in the Night is a good card no doubt but I kinda wanted to stay away from more conventional burn spells and rely more on using my creatures as a way to get reach. May be not as competitive but more fun to me. Priest of Forgotten Gods I have considered. I don't know I feel like I want to be on the attack with my creatures and I feel like priest slows the aggression down. You think it would be a decent sideboard fit? Thanks.

Ratchet Bomb in the sideboard. It hoses tokens and can also help you remove Enchantments. Everlasting Torment might be useful, too.

Fate Transfer would be another way to remove counters from Undying creatures.

Sign in Blood and Bump in the Night seem like possible mainboard fits. Priest of Forgotten Gods also seems worth considering.

If you want an alternative way to abuse Undying creatures, Solemnity fits the bill. Geralf's Messenger + Solemnity + Viscera Seer is an infinite combo.

Adding playsets of Bump in the Night , Liliana's Caress , Duress , Lightning Bolt and 3x of Dark Salvation should be a good start. They're cheap too!

Hey if you want consistency with this deck better increase your cards 3s and 4s here. A deck with just one-ofs of random cards isn't gonna get you anywhere my man. I got some cards w/ number of copies you could work around with:

4x Legion Lieutenant ; 4x Vicious Conquistador ; 3x Indulgent Aristocrat ; 4x Concealed Courtyard ; 4x Bump in the Night ; 4x Thoughtseize ; 3x Martyr of Sands ; 3x Captivating Vampire ; 4x Skymarcher Aspirant ; 3x Yahenni, Undying Partisan .

Cheers!

Bump in the Night is already a card lol.

It was a scary bear, it was a hairy bear

Sorcery

Summon 2/2 bear with deathtouch and a 2/2 bear with trample.

Until end of turn, all bears gain menace

Stick with the camping theme!

If you’re already splashing black for the sideboard, you could try Bump in the Night . It’s basically a Lava Spike that you can flash back.

kumenatheman The Lands are a little weird for sure. Since I'm running 10 fetches, and I'm technically only splashing black for Bump in the Night , I can mix and match shocklands for sideboard cards. Maybe put in a single Stomping Ground for a Destructive Revelry , or maybe a Sacred Foundry to get things like Rest in Peace . I haven't really thought about the sideboard much but having more fetches helps with land flexibility for the sideboard.

PlatinumWare They really help procing landfall for Searing Blaze when you need it and because I'm running Grim Lavamancer , fetches are a good include with the minuscule benefit of deck thinning.

Travis15973 Hey, sweet deck! I’m not super sure how or if I can help, as my brewing history with B/R in Modern is pretty limited to super-grindy midrange decks. That being said, let’s plunge right into it!

I think the main thing to consider with this deck is which way you want it to go. For example, the inclusion of Fireblade Artist and Judith, the Scourge Diva leans in a more Aristocrats-esque direction, while Goblin Guide and Goblin Bushwhacker suggest a more 8-Whack style of play. I would pick one theme and build the entire deck around that, as there are tons of ways to build aggro and so focus is key.

Spike Jester seems really weak for Modern. I’d replace it, just because it’s super outclassed by many of the common two-drops ( Tarmogoyf , Thing in the Ice  Flip)) and dies to literally everything, without any extra incentive as a sac outlet. Likewise, while I personally love the card Guul Draz Vampire , I don’t think it’s particularly good, just because the situations where it will be a measly 1/1 are more than you think, particularly if the opponent manages to stabilize and pick off the rest of your guys.

If I were to recommend some cards, here are some that could work in an aggressive B/R shell: - Bump in the Night (it’s basically a Lava Spike with flashback) - Bloodsoaked Champion (it’s a recurring threat that works particularly well in an aristocrats build) - Dark Confidant (an excellent source of card advantage, considering that the cmc of your deck is super low) - Fatal Push (gets rid of bigger creatures like Tarmogoyf) - Kolaghan's Command (as a one or two-of, this card seems great just as a zap opponent, get a dude back, or whatever the situation requires)

Also, in terms of sideboard, consider what your bad matchups would be (control, fast combo come to mind). Build your sideboard to counter these decks. Some cards to consider include:

2x Damping Sphere to deal with both Tron and Storm

2x Relic of Progenitus or Tormod's Crypt to deal with graveyard shenanigans

Some number of Dragon's Claw to survive the Burn matchup

And then fill in the rest as you see fit. The meta changes depending on where you are, as the local meta might favor Jund or Jeskai while another might favor Dredge or Tron.

I hope this was of help (and I’m sorry if it wasn’t). Feel free to ask any questions if I wasn’t clear on anything.
