Falkenrath Aristocrat Discussion

Just a note, both Seething Song and Dark Ritual are not modern-legal. What about replacing it with Rakdos Cackler, for a one-mana 2/2, or Gnarled Scarhide, for a one-drop that also has relevance mid- to late-game.
In terms of aggro viability, I would probably replace Desecration Demon with Falkenrath Aristocrat, as big D has the tendency to be slowed down against other creature decks, which will likely be playing the control role against a deck like yours. Another option is Hellrider, always a great choice for creature-heavy aggro.

I have been heavily considering both of these.
I love the thought of sacrificing Bloodsoaked Champion to Cartel Aristocrat to swing in unblockable then bringing Champion right back. I also like the thought of providing an endless source to buff Falkenrath Aristocrat.
As for Butcher of the Horde, I have been torn between him and Falkenrath Aristocrat. I like butcher's ability for lifelink and I love that he is already out of Lighting Bolt range. But I really enjoy Arisocrat's resistant to removal spell's such as Terminate. There are also many times that I Blasphemous Act the battlefield to clear off blockers and then swing with Aristocrat afterwards. I may play test Butcher in the deck for a while to see which one I like better overall.

I really hate the fact that you're running Siege Rhino. All humans (with the exception of Falkenrath Aristocrat), and then random Siege Rhino. It's a good card, but just doesn't fit with the theme. Dark Confidant is card advantage and a human, so it should fit good.

I think Blightning should be included in your build. For creatures I've toyed with the idea of Keldon Marauders and Falkenrath Aristocrat. Black heavy builds with Pack Rat and Phyrexian Obliterator or even burn/goblin with Goblin Guide and Goblin Rabblemaster.
I would love to see this work.

ehawkins11 I see what you're saying about Go for the Throat but I tend to agree with everyone else in saying that Terminate is way better. As far as Bloodsoaked Champion, I think you missed the point of his inclusion. Not only is he a hard hitting one mana creature, but the synergy he has with Falkenrath Aristocrat is off the charts. The second you have the two of them on the field together, as long as you keep two lands untapped, you have a continuously growing, indestructible creature that will wreak havoc on the opponent.
APPLE01DOJ I agree about R/B not really being tournament viable as the meta currently stands. That being said, R/B are my favorite colors to play by far, so I'm really trying to build something that can crack the meta, hence why all of the "conventional wisdom" people are giving me is kind of being thrown out the window. Sure I could play an 8-Rack or a Red Deck Wins, but then I wouldn't be playing the R/B deck I want to play. So really this deck is an experiment to see if I can make something in R/B that's at very least competitive in modern.
That's also why the deck sort of looks like a combined RDW and 8-Rack. In order to deal with the enchantments that you mentioned I can't stop, the only way to do so is to be proactive, and force them to be discarded before they are even played. Then if I can drop the opponents most potent enchantments from there hand, the combined rush of creatures and destruction spells don't allow them to mount any sort of defense. I don't know how well it would hold up competitively, but I at least want to try to create something that can hold its own

Terminate>Dreadbore, also you need Rakdos Cackler. You might want to stay just 2 colors so you'll have better mana fixing. If you want to go BR Lightning Bolt, Inquisition of Kozilek, Falkenrath Aristocrat, and Fists of the Demigod are really good.

I highly suggest Vampire Aristocrat and Falkenrath Aristocrat as an addition. With all the vampire tokens it shouldn't be a problem activating thier ability. Also Vampiric Fury is a great choice. While you're at it go with a Bloodcrazed Neonate
