As an additional cost to cast Collateral Damage, sacrifice a creature.
Collateral Damage deals 3 damage to target creature or player.
Collateral Damage Discussion
6 months ago
While Fling and Thud may sometimes deal more damage than Collateral Damage , however, due to the restriction on power by Yasova Dragonclaw , Collateral will usually deal more. Also, the stealing and sacrificing deal is only a small feature of the deck, not the focus of the deck. I'd prefer to only have one threaten effect in the deck, as adding more than just Yasova would make the deck too dependent on my opponent for powerful creatures. Thanks for the suggestions, though.

guttersnipe is just terrible in modern.. 3 mana that could easily have just been another bolt, and there is a million better options than shock, most of which are fairly cheap.
some shock replacements include:
guttersnipe could be replaced by plenty of lower cmc creatures not seen in regular burn decks
sideboard you could and should run more artfact and enchantment hate like

Gotcha. I would just go with sac outlets, then. Phyrexian Tower just went from like $60 to $10 because of the reprint. Infernal Offering , Recurring Nightmare , Rescue from the Underworld , Victimize , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist all offer recursion. Altar's Reap , Fling , Costly Plunder , Culling the Weak , Plunge into Darkness , Vicious Offering , Devour Flesh , Merciless Resolve , Sacrifice , Collateral Damage , Burnt Offering , Carrion , Fiery Conclusion , Spontaneous Combustion , and Dredge are all better instant-speed ways to leverage Xantcha. Or you could just Inferno or Starstorm to kill the board.

I forgot Flame Rift and Book Burning . I use Blur of Blades a lot and find it very useful. if you like STRONG BURN then go with Guttersnipe and Embermaw Hellion and any spell like Magma Jet , if you want small burn then go with Shock . for faster plays Bloodlust Inciter . Collateral Damage or Artillerize or Thud just Heat Shimmer . ( Mass Mutiny for fun.) good spells such as Reckless Abandon and Reversal of Fortune are just fun to play.

Imminent Doom is a weird card to play around with. In an EDH deck you'd definitely get value out of it. Here... probably not so much.
Wizard's Lightning would be more consistent damage. Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, maybe. Fanatical Firebrand, Zurgo Bellstriker, Thunderous Wrath, Searing Spear, Incinerate, Flame Javelin, Collateral Damage are all fun cheapish burn spells and doods. Reverberate+Insult would just be brutal but you'd need the mana to pull it off.
I like what you're trying, I'd just probably take out the imminents.

It's no bother. Conversely, sorry for forgetting about this thread for a bit. =p =)
Again, it depends what you're doing with Insolent Neonate. Menace is useful. And the sacrifice obviously supports Bri-Guy, but can you make the discard portion work for you? If you're planning to supplement Brian with something like Hooting Mandrills, Gurmag Angler or even Sultai Scavenger, then maybe the discard can help. If you're not though, then I would personally avoid Insolent Neonate.
On the other hand, if you still prefer the scale-ability of Outnumber, then perhaps Mob Justice or Massive Raid would be more up your alley, since they can target players as well as creatures. They do, however, cost more to cast.
When you're done with the deck, I hope you'll share it here with us. =)
