Dorotheus on blowing off steam (aka budget 12 bolt)

This looks more like you're wanting to build a Pyromancer Ascension list than a burn one (play 4), I'd immediately replace Ordeal, Chandra, and Simian Spirit Guide with Burst Lightning, Faithless Looting, and Manamorphose. Hopefully that helps you with the style you're going for.

Switch the deck to either modern or casual format. Unless you want to be playing the most expensive format in the game

But it doesn't look like a bad start. First thing I would suggest is some stuff like Sacred Foundry and Clifftop Retreat

Lightning Bolt Lightning Strike Searing Spear and Burst Lightning are all better options then Shock Swap the mararuding maulhorn out for something like Rampaging Ferocidon Make those changes and we can see where to go from there

Thanks for the heads up wyquem, that's a nice catch on the sorcery interaction there. It definitely makes Rift Bolt worse in this list, but I'm not quite sure it's bad enough to replace with something like Burst Lightning, as it will still trigger Kiln Fiend and the prowess triggers on the turn it goes off, as well as the usual burn/blocker clearing abilities. I'll have to test around with a few cards in that slot and see what seems to stick best.

Rift Bolt seems worse than Burst Lightning in a lot of cases, especially in an 18-land deck.

Awww a good old delver list +1 for that!

why Tarfire and Burst Lightning over Rift Bolt?

I would replace Faithless Looting, Mishra's Bauble and maybe Electrolyze for 4 Thought Scour. This will fuel your early Hooting Mandrills

I would also consider Logic Knot over Deprive, I love deprive but I think it's a little to rough on your 3 color mana base

in my experience 4xLeyline of Punishment sideboard is da wae. im not a fan of Bomat Courier, Burst Lightning, or Incinerate. here is my deck lava spike, vorpalaxe.

I agree with sylvannos that Goblin Guide is strictly better than Vexing Devil and I probably won't build the deck without GG despite the cost. I also agree that 4 copies of the The Flame of Keld may be overkill but I am not sure what to replace them with, Searing Blaze seems pretty unimpressive in a deck with 18 basics.

I think a 2-2 or 3-1 split between The Flame of Keld and something else would be good, but I'm not sure what to put in. Flames of the Blood Hand comes to mind, as does Burst Lightning, Rampaging Ferocidon, Incinerate, or Bomat Courier. I don't know, what do you guys think?
