I hate to be that guy...

But Burning-Tree Emissary ?

Epidilius does the Burn player not use Rampaging Ferocidon ?

That's how I stay ahead of the life gain in Approach of the Second Sun decks.

I have also found that a lot of Burn decks aren't really Burn these days.

They run a lot of Creatures instead of the brilliant 3 drop spells that deal 4 damage.

Daveslab2022 I did not take Burning-Tree Emissary into consideration.

Makes sense.

I have six 1 drop spells in my Burn deck that can deal 2 damage. I wonder if that would help by getting rid of the first Creature?

8 wack can attack for 10 utilizing any one drop they play (I’ll use Foundry Street Denizen as my example)

T1 FSD, T2 Burning-Tree Emissary , Burning-Tree Emissary , Reckless Bushwhacker and that is 14 damage. 5 from FSD, and 3 from everything else.

With no 1 drop it’s 9 damage. With any other 1 drop it’s 11.

If you drop 1 burning tree emissary, you hit for 8.

BMHKain but it's so much easier to add cards haha. These are the cards I would cut:

Burning-Tree Emissary seems like a decent inclusion potentially.

Instead of working around with sacrifice for mana, it is possible to use etb or death mana to pull off your combo.

You can use Memnite , Burning-Tree Emissary and Priest of Urabrask as your creatures, and Altar of Dementia or Blasting Station as the 3rd combo piece.

Doing it this way would allow you to put Reckless Bushwhacker and/or Goblin Bushwhacker in the sideboard, and turn into a bad 8-whack deck for when the opponent inevitably brings in graveyard and other hate, and you know your combo can't do it.

But, this does slow your deck down by a turn.

Since it looks like you're moving toward a pure Goblin build, removing the Black/Zombies all together, I'll make suggestions based on that assumption.

Goblins like to fly low to the ground and hit your opponents as hard and fast as possible. The traditional goblin deck is known as 8-wack, since it runs 4x Reckless Bushwhacker and 4x Goblin Bushwhacker . Both of those are fantastic cards, since they can both swing on the turn they are played and boost all your creatures by +1/0. They are both relatively inexpensive, so should be fairly easy upgrades to get a hold of.

Otherwise, you want to focus less on the high-end creatures, and more on inexpensive-to-cast cards that can finish out the game. Some other inexpensive options include Mogg War Marshal (which is a strict upgrade to Goblin Instigator ), Burning-Tree Emissary (which, while not a goblin, is basically a free-to-cast 2/2), and Foundry Street Denizen (which will always swing for 2, and sometimes for 3+ on turn 2).

Other cards worth running are Goblin Grenade --5 damage is an incredible amount for just one mana and a fodder creature--and Lightning Bolt , which is also a solid kill/burn spell.
