Lava Axe Discussion

Being a Dimir player with a red loving brother, some of the cards I hated the most when playing against him and would fit into you deck are: Browbeat, also Hellspark Elemental because of the @#$%!& unheart, oh and also good ol'Lava Axe right into your opponent's face... starts crying*

Hi there, I'm also working on a U/R deck and I have to say i wish I had seen this before ordering some cards. I only now realized the benefits of bounce like Just the Wind paired with Fevered Visions. I will say that I think Avacyn's Judgment is superior to Burn from Within if you consider that you have 7 cards which discard, Lava Axe and Tormenting Voice, a 1 off of Avacyn's can give you a card which does more damage and can split said damage, and let you have equal madness to discard cards if I counted correctly. If you're going to run a 1 off of either, Avacyn's Judgment I think is a better choice for mainboard.

Now, I look at Browbeat and think "Hmmm...40 life is high enough. They'll take the 5." As much as I want a source of card draw, being in mono-red and all, but I'm concerned that I'm only going to Lava Axe someone, which is ok but I still would much prefer card draw that's guaranteed.
Any reason why I must run the card? What are your thoughts on Browbeat in the format as a whole?

Negate is in the deck, so the very similar Countersquall is certainly in the realm of possibility, although a little worse than Negate (the lifeloss is completely irrelevant, but the mana cost is more restrictive).
Deprive is a Counterspell with a serious drawback. The deck tries to assemble 7+ mana as fast as possible, making Deprive really unattractive.
Dash Hopes is never going to be anything but a Lava Axe - no way is this ever finding a place in a competitive deck like this.
If you are looking to add more counters or just replace some of the expensive ones with more budget friendly options, Mana Leak and Logic Knot seem like some of the best options to me, but Countersquall is definitly a solid option as well.

Still need to test this change, but I took out Lightning Axe to bump the lands up to 22 and made Sinister Concoction a 4 of as it's been better at both enabling deliruim and killing creatures. I want to reduce the chance of getting mana screwed, it's a terrible way to lose and I find that I rarely use Lava Axe and board it out pretty often.
