Zetsu, I did have Thermo-Alchemist in the deck originally, however I would have to wait a turn for it to come online, plus Firebrand Archer is triggered by all non-creature spells, making it a bit more versatile. Vandalblast and Renegade Tactics are definitely options to consider though!

hfvalenz, I am still undecided about Make Mischief. I think I will have to test it before making a permanent decision. I see what you mean about Chandra's Ignition, I may have to take that out, possibly in favour of a Mirrorwing Dragon as they are both 5 drops.

I would highly suggest replacing the Marauders with Firebrand Archers.

I prefer Thermo-Alchemist over Firebrand Archer, because of 2 reasons:

1: his toughness - Firebrand Archer goes down way to quick

1.2: he can also block without dying

2.: he shoots one damage more each round (whats really helpfull in longer games)

And I don't want to play more then 8 creaures. So i, unfortunatly, have to forego the archer.

Hiya, just a few comments and suggestions here. One, I'm not sure why you've listed the deck as being Standard, as quite a few of the cards in here aren't Standard legal. I'm not one to worry too much about format legality, nor is my playgroup, but I've been to some fairly nitpicky FNM games and you just want to make sure you've got your deck listed as the right format for when you run into someone with a problem. I think the right format here would be Legacy, as you've got a card from all the way back in Urza's Saga. Just a pro tip.

Anyway, on to the cards. One thing i can suggest right off is to replace Open Fire with Lightning Strike. It's also Standard legal now thanks to an Ixalan reprint, and it does the same thing for one fewer mana.

IMHO, any Standard burn deck, or any burn deck, really, is incomplete without Soul-Scar Mage. Prowess AND gives all your burn spells de facto Wither?? Insane card value for a one drop creature. It's also under $3.

If you're not married to the Standard format and want to keep your non-Standard cards, then I'd take out Firebrand Archer for Guttersnipe. Has almost double the value for only one mana more. Also, consider Browbeat. A good option for burn damage to players, but more importantly, for card draw, which is both super important in burn decks with a lot of instants and sorceries and very hard to find in red decks.

Hope this helps!

Have you played around with Firebrand Archer in the deck. I play it in my burn deck, and it is very powerful. Also for the mana base maybe some Forgotten Cave to not flood out as easily

I would suggest Thermo-Alchemist to replace Firebrand Archer, it can take more damage, but can't attack so it might not fit in right.Maybe add Renegade Tactics for more card draw with Zada. Also maybe Vandalblast
