@Poaralion I've been playing this deck on MTG Arena (Bo3 Eventmode) since the new cards came out and this is what I think: The 18 lands never cause problems. Sometimes I draw a 1 lander as a opening hand, if there's a Light Up the Stage in it and I'm sure to hit with Fanatical Firebrand or Ghitu Lavarunner on turn 2 I even keep these hands. Usually I just go for an opening hand with 2 or 3 lands.

Goblin Chainwhirler was good to have in the sideboard. In matchups agains white tokens decks or in the mirror match I've used it. In any other case it seems the deck is much faster without him. A lot of the times you get to burn your opponent before turn 5. This is also the reason I'm running only 2 Risk Factor . I want to be able to do as much as possible, even with 2 lands.

With all of the burn you have, I would probably run Electrostatic Field over Fanatical Firebrand so you can enable Spectacle more often, as well as hold off early aggro threats. It will slow you down in the early game, but you're almost guaranteed a win with it once The Flame of Keld goes off.

skoobysnackz That's just a product of me being a noob honestly as I thought Golden Demise and Cry of the Carnarium would count for Pestilent Spirit . Thank you for that I'll switch them for Fiery Cannonade .

Cafelattis I was considering Fanatical Firebrand but didn't know what to switch it out for. Any recommendations?

Thank you both.

I honestly recomend Fanatical Firebrand , early dmg and in the mid-late game it can easily turn on spectacle by sacrifice it.

Thanks Blackgate, I appreciate the feedback. My main difficulty with the deck atm is mana red aggro, so I'm looking into things that might allow me to survive a bit better against threats like Goblin Chainwhirler and Fanatical Firebrand , alongside burn in general. It's hard for me to have any board presence when my rat colonies are constantly at risk of being obliterated in one turn by one ETB effect, so I'm looking into maybe building a green/black deck with Vraska, Golgari Queen to give me an edge with only a few needed on board. Your suggestions I'm definitely going to test out ASAP and see if it helps.

Why Vicious Rumors in the SB? seems extremely bad, why not run duress if youre looking for discard, or Fanatical Firebrand for the damage?

Let's see here.

Suggestions to add:

Viashino Pyromancer and Vicious Conquistador are both worth running. They seem better than Cult Guildmage and Immolation Shaman in terms of sheer speed. Another option would be Rix Maadi Reveler , since it provides you some much needed card draw and spectacle doesn't seem that hard to hit for you.

I would cut Footlight Fiend for Fanatical Firebrand .

Since this deck seems to be based in aggressive creature stuff, I wouldn't necessarily recommend Sovereign's Bite , but it's worth a look.
