I like the splash of black for some extra life loss! Some more notable cards to consider:

  • Fireblast: To squeeze out those last drops of damage when tapped out.
  • Eidolon of the Great Revel: You'd be amazed by how many strategies this hoses. If you're racing, this can be surprisingly damaging.
  • Hell's Thunder: A flying damage spell that comes back to surprise your opponent if they've forgotten about it.
  • Flame Javelin: Sometimes you just need one extra damage. Also hits creatures.

Imminent Doom is a weird card to play around with. In an EDH deck you'd definitely get value out of it. Here... probably not so much.

Wizard's Lightning would be more consistent damage. Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, maybe. Fanatical Firebrand, Zurgo Bellstriker, Thunderous Wrath, Searing Spear, Incinerate, Flame Javelin, Collateral Damage are all fun cheapish burn spells and doods. Reverberate+Insult would just be brutal but you'd need the mana to pull it off.

I like what you're trying, I'd just probably take out the imminents.

great suggestions. thanks. ill think about them, but here is why im not doing it now: Flame Javelin is 6 cmc, so it has synergy with Eidolon of the Great Revel. also, this deck is so consistent, there is never a need to even mulligan.

Ramunap Ruins is interesting, I played a long game against a counterspell deck, and i had 5 lands out, and one in my hand.. he was returning my creatures to my hand, so i played the lands to cast the creatures of course. I won, and it is very rare to play that many lands, and that many turns.. but it can't be countered. the only reason not to put it in is to keep the extra life sometimes. that is a theme of this deck: to avoid paying life on lands.

I would not mind fetch, but the paying the USD and life to get a fetchland that doesnt slow you down? I doubt the measurable improvement they would make to this deck.

using all mountains, and some Dragon's Claw, makes me stronger in the mirror match.

Worship is a problem, but Leyline of Punishment and Volcanic Fallout generally kills pro red creatures.. there is a mediocre chance of getting both, but the game will be relatively long, and no one has 4x Worship right?

Anger of the Gods and Rampaging Ferocidon are great suggestions.. I had them both in there for a bit.

Flame Javelin is great but I think if you are ok running 4x cards with a CMC of 3 then Collective Defiance provides you with a sorcery speed replacement level effect + the option to ditch a hand of lands or put a combo player off their win-con. Seems like a good trade-off 1 or 2.

I agree with clockwork swordfish above about Ramunap Ruins as a 1 or 2 of. In games where you flood it's an out.

I'd also add some fetch, just for the flexibility of hitting for 3 with Searing Blaze on the opponent's turn.

If you agree with me about running a fetch or two, then you should throw in one or two shocklands that allow you to side into Wear // Tear or Destructive Revelry, which is your only option for dealing with things like Worship.

Also about your SB: the inclusion of Dragon's Claw tells me you're thinking about long game options. I'd say replace one of those with a Molten Vortex or Seismic Assault.

Another good SB option for a sweeper would be 1 or 2 Anger of the Gods over Volcanic Fallout.

I have no idea if there's enough go-wide in your meta but just had a thought about running Rampaging Ferocidon.

except that it is a sorcery. so Exquisite Firecraft is worse, unless you play a modern counterspell deck. i would love to play it against my burn deck. also, modern burn has Eidolon of the Great Revel in 100 percent of decks, so at 6 cmc Flame Javelin is ideal.

Rift Bolt and Searing Blaze for the main and Smash to Smithereens for the sideboard. Exquisite Firecraft is strictly better Flame Javelin.

Thanks for the Upvote! I hadn't seen Flame Javelin in my search. I am not worried about Chalice of the Void because I have Lightning Strikes and Flame Javelin not to mention Thunderous Wrath.

Eidolon of the Great Revel also does not worry me because I am putting out more damage than I am taking in.
