Battalion — Whenever Firefist Striker and at least two other creature attack, target creature can't block this turn.
Kind of threw this together with spare cards to mix it up from my typical rakdos aggro stuff.
Ash Zealot Haste, first-strike, devotion. What's not to like?
Burning-Tree Emissary Dat value
Firefist Striker for getting my dudes through.
Frostburn Weird For dat devotion and pump.
Fanatic of Mogis Zap!!
Rubblebelt Maaka Bloodrush!
Hammer of Purphoros Hastiness, potential to grind things out with 3/3 tokens
Skullcrack fuck yo' rev, fuck yo' merchant, fuck yo' life
Stormbreath Dragon caw caw im a fucking dragon. Not too sure on this one, but he's one of my favourite dudes.
id say pop in 2 Firefist Striker his effect can be tremendously helpful Ive won quite a bit because i had one on the field
Celestial Flare would help give this a bit more in the way of removal. Nice little combat trick too. Firefist Striker fits the theme as well as a temporary detain trick. Detained for 24 hours without evidence, perhaps?
You don't have anything to cast off of a Burning-Tree other than Mizzium Mortars... You should probably take out the Frostburn Weird for something like Gore-House Chainwalker or Firefist Striker , just so you can get those extra fast starts to outrun people's removal.
One last thing, you may want to replace one of the two drops you already have, probably Frostburn Weird given that it's the most mana intensive of the bunch, with another two-drop that you can cast off Burning-Tree Emissary . Firefist Striker and Gore-House Chainwalker both work and are pretty good.
Karametra's Acolyte drops later, and is only good if you already have a solid board state on the field...she also won't tap for mana until the turn after you play her. For 4 mana you'd rather be dropping a Polukranos, Deadbridge Goliath, Ember Swallower, or other significant threat.
Ghor-Clan Rampager is rarely played as a creature. It's a combat trick that busts through defenses. Rubblebelt Raiders is really sub-par for this deck (and in general). You're not filling the board with attackers, you're slamming down 1 or 2 big threats. Threats that don't need other creatures on board to be good. That's what you really want to be doing. All the 4-drops I suggested earlier will be better than Rubblebelt Raiders.
Or you go smaller. Less big stuff. More along the lines of Burning-Tree Emissary decks. Rakdos Cackler , Firefist Striker , Skylasher , Firedrinker Satyr , Ash Zealot . Then you can play things like Madcap Skills , Alpha Authority , Titan's Strength , etc. You don't really want to be bothering with enchantments in the deck otherwise.
