To make it cheaper you could go for a mono red storm strategy using Locket of Yesterdays , and Reforge the Soul . I've seen it played on roguedeckbuilder on youtube and it can potentially go off turn 1 or 2 with the right combination of cards. As a suggestion for the current deck however, I'd say replace Desperate Ravings for Faithless Looting . It may be sorcery speed, but it costs less, and you get to choose what to discard instead of accidentally discarding something you actually need,which I think makes it worth using.

Extremely inconsistent. If your deck relies on a combo, you want to be sure you draw that combo. Having only 1 or 2 of each card makes this extremely unlikely, and very vulnerable to enemy removal. You'd need at least a playset of each, and if it's very important you could implement cards that make you search your library for creatures/artifacts like Signal the Clans , or regular card draw like Faithless Looting .

The infinite mana is colorless, so it will be hard to cast infinite creature spells with it (which is what I suppose 'death by one-turn horde refers to), since most a lot of creatures in your deck require at least a few colored mana. I don't see the deck working without the infinite mana, since it's mostly just a bunch of creatures that don't synergize and token making creatures that want the colorless mana. If you want to turn it into such a deck, you should have haste from something like Hammer of Purphoros to make sure they can attack on the same turn they're summoned, otherwise someone could easily use Supreme Verdict or anything that deals damage to each creature like Anger of the Gods

Sorry, but this deck is pretty bad. Don't worry though, I sometimes make similar mistakes. I had great help from another member of the community which gave me a tip on how to improve my deck: I've got the power!. Under Update #1 you can read his comment, which I think will be a very helpful read for your future decks.

The issue with running more Dark Confidant is that you really don't want to draw another Dark Confidant . Young Pyromancer is interesting, but why not run Vexing Devil or Hellspark Elemental ? At the end of the day, I just want to get my opponent to 0. Pyromancer seems like a fragile way of achieving that goal.

Faithless Looting has the advantage that it can come out on turn 1. Though if you're playing it right out of the gates, mulling seems like an obvious better choice. Initially I was playing with Night's Whisper and a second Blood Crypt . For now, I've replaced Faithless Looting with Skullcrack .

I was wondering why you had Eidolon of the Great Revel when a lot of your stuff fit the criteria to hurt yourself, but I see from the previous comments that that is to help counter blue counter spells a little bit. For draw power, maybe go with Wild Guess ? I know Faithless Looting is popular because it can be flashed back, but Guess seems like a slightly better card in my opinion. I could see Looting doing better if you were doing a Pyromancer Ascension build.

Faithless Looting is 10x better than Desperate Ravings . Cheaper and a flashback that you can actually use.

This version isn't bad, but I feel like the Jund version is faster with Faithless Looting . Regardless, I would throw in some Grisly Salvage and Abrupt Decay , and if you want, a few Inquisition of Kozilek / Thoughtseize . Drown in Filth seems bad (most of the time) especially since it's sorcery speed. You probably won't need Life from the Loam either.

Gitaxian Probe is off the Maybeboard. I also yanked Faithless Looting for Skullcrack . Dark Confidant has been working out well, he helps the burn train keep rolling. It's easy to get 12-15 damage off your opening hand, but praying to topdeck a win condition is a bit iffy.

Maybe some Smallpox ? Because a lesser Balance in modern is still amazing. Better taplands would also be nice, with shocks and all, though I know there tough to get a play set of on a budget. I also feel like Howling Mine is out of place here, as your trying to deny your opponent a hand rather than refuel it. I understand that it helps refuel your hand as well, but I would recommend better cantrips. Seeing as there are not many in black and red, perhaps some Gitaxian Probe or cycle lands? I would also probably replace Burning Inquiry with Faithless Looting (one of red's better draws), to once again avoid helping them thin out there deck, which could potentially give them more solutions. I would also recommend running some Hero's Downfall for walker removal. Chittering Rats can often be like a Time Walk

Of course you know the big money recomendations like Liliana and Siezes.

SB I'd run some Surgical Extraction s to help fight against combo (its especially powerful as you run discard). Some Pithing Needle s are good against pod and Twin, and since you dont run alot of nonbasics, Blood Moon s seem like a must to combat Tron and Zoo.
