Burn from Within Discussion

The question is, does he have to "use" all of his mana the moment he casts it or can he wait for responses and then decide how much of his mana pool is going into that spell.
I found this on the mtg wiki:
"the controller of that spell or ability chooses and announces the value of X as part of casting the spell or activating the ability"
Not really sure how to interpret the "announces" part, does he have to pay it or not?

Upvoted, cool deck :D
For my suggestions, I'd run more of the lords/tribal effects (vampires have a ton), and cut some of the more vanilla vampires. I'd search gatherer for any card containing the rule text "vampire" (and limiting to your colors).
Also, EDH is all about huge effects, and Stensia Innkeeper or Night Revelers are going to have a tough time keeping up. I like to imagine the worst case scenario, and see how the creature would do. For instance, your opponent has a Followed Footsteps on a Grave Titan. Something like Bloodline Keeper might stall a bit, but Falkenrath Reaver is just going to get overrun.
My friend has a vampire deck, and some effective bombs that I'd suggest are Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Malakir Bloodwitch, and Patron of the Vein.You could also run more solid, supporty cards like Rakish Heir, Stensia Masquerade, Stromkirk Captain, and Aphetto Dredging. Also, Basilisk Collar, Lightning Greaves, and Swiftfoot Boots are nice for your commander.
IMO, burn spells are generally not as good as the straight removal some of the other people suggested. My suggestions would be Sudden Death, Sudden Spoiling, and Urge to Feed, or, if you want a burn package to finish out opponents, Burn from Within, Fall of the Titans, Devil's Play, or Banefire (all of which have some sort of utility/reusability).

No, not really, TheRedGoat. Most of my burn consists of spells like Sizzle or Slagstorm, and while I do like to swing out with Neheb when I can, his damage isn't usually my primary source of post-combat mana gain. My local meta also doesn't tend to use Fog effects, but either way I don't see stopping combat damage as a large hindrance to the deck.
I have considered Past in Flames, and even once had a Shreds of Sanity in an earlier build, but so far I haven't seen too much need for either of them, because I usually manage to draw into a card like Reverberate or Pyromancer's Goggles that let me cast my big x-spells (like Burn from Within or Fireball ) more than once for a lot of damage. My damage doublers help as well. Honestly, the largest problem with the deck so far is card draw. With the right hand, I can kill someone fairly quickly, or at the very least drop my hand on the battlefield, but gaining more options after dumping/gaining mana is the real weakness I'm finding with the deck. Perhaps more wheels...

Second comment, this one about card suggestions. I'm guessing yours is a group that frowns on Sol Ring? If not, slot that in! I'd recommend Shared Animosity over Door of Destinies, Boros Charm over Angelic Renewal, Boom/Bust over Decimate, Comet Storm over Burn from Within, and Assemble the Legion over Howling Mine.

Yeah I can cut down on creatures as well as add some stuff like Lightning Greaves to help protec.
I would love a JTMS and Consecrated Sphinx but they're above my budget. Lol

Imminent Doom will not get ticked by Endless One or Walking Ballista as their CMC is zero.
spells with X mana cost have a CMC of what their cost is without the X's.
like Burn from Within always has CMC of 1.
