And for lands, you should first of all cut the islands since you're not running blue anymore. If you want to spend a bunch of money and make the deck competitive you're looking at Bloodstained Mire, Blood Crypt, and Blackcleave Cliffs. For more budget options you can look at Foreboding Ruins, Dragonskull Summit, and Evolving Wilds.

Thanks DarkStarStorm for keeping me honest and for your support. You HAVE been here since I was running Foreboding Ruins and Moldgraf Scavengers. (Yikes!!) I have definitely had quite the bruiser match-ups that you speak of. Jund is my pride and joy and I just want to be able to show my face around my LGS and not get smacked with Flameblade Adept for four rounds. (I checked out that Copycat deck and it looks sweet.)

Thanks again to both of you for being a constant in my notifications. I always look forward to what you have to say.

I do like the Foreboding Ruins suggestion. I will have to play test with that and see how it works out. The lethemancer is a good idea too if I want to stay with the discard theme for the deck.

I think I will try the single Lightning Helix for now and adjust as I find is needed after playing the deck a few times. Thanks for all of the input. This has helped a lot!

Check out Foreboding Ruins -- it gets you the T1 versatility of Blackcleave Cliffs with only a little less consistency. For Lili, you might also try Cunning Lethemancer. Best of luck, friend!

redbird97 Cruel control refers to Cruel Ultimatum decks, although I catch your drift. +1
4 Vraska's Contempt seems a bit excessive. I would drop 2 and add 2 Terminate. Also, Foreboding Ruins or Game Trail seem better over Highland Weald

First things first, you're trying to do way too many things at once. Limit down to one or two wincons and the ways to easily accomplish that wincon.

Secondly, your consistency is absolute garbage. Too many one ofs. Bring most up to 3 or 4, cutting things that dont accomplish your chosen wincon.

Third, your mana is wonky as hell. You're running super high drops in B/R, which may or may not work depending on your build. Yours does not support them at all. I'd force the highest possible drop in the deck to be 5. Then, cut all lands that always come in tapped. Untapped dual lands, like your Foreboding Ruins, are a great asset. Cinder Barrens and the scry lands are really not in this. Either basics or untapped dual lands. And run at least 24. But no more than 26.

Lastly, your card choice isn't that great. Theres tons of great wincons in this deck, theres just options that accomplish those better.

In short, I'd run Ob Nixilis, the Fallen as your wincon and run a pseudo control/landfall type thing. That would entail using fetchlands such as Evolving Wilds in order to get two triggers in one turn.

But that's just what I think.

Personally, to start, you’ll want to drop out Blood Artist, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, and the Bloodline Keeper  Flip. After taking these out, you can look at some decent 1/3/4 drops for a Rakdos vampire deck. These include; Falkenrath Gorger, Vampire Lacerator, Captivating Vampire, and Vampire Nocturnus. All of these will prove to increase the power in your creature section. For your manabase, all I can say is it appears that you are budgeting it right now. If you get the time or money, try out maybe Blood Crypt. You already have the right idea with the Foreboding Ruins. And lastly, removal in a Rakdos deck is key. Personally, I’d swap out those Terminate’s with Dreadbores, and maybe the Lightning Bolts out for something like Fatal Push. I will admit, however, that your current brew looks very similar to my first brew. So I will say now, you are definitely on the right track. P.S. try swapping out Vampire Nighthawk with some Bloodghasts.

Hey, my suggestions are to improve the manabase.

Consider adding these budget Rakdos lands:

Good luck with your deck.
