lukas96 on Help building Bloodbraid elf burn ...

yeah you shouldnt try to use BBE multiple times, that wont work as good as you might thinkAtarka's Command is pretty good in the same deck as bbe.

Magma Jet should not be in any Burn deck, same is true for Magma Spray and Burst Lightning.

Combining burn with landfall seems odd and not very usefull so id drop this idea.

What about something like

4 BBE 4 Monastery Swiftspear 4 Ball Lightning

4 Lava Spike 4 Lightning Bolt 4 Rift Bolt 4 Atarka's Command 4 Searing Blood/ Searing Blaze (Searing Blood might be better because you cant guarantee the landfall trigger when you are cascading) 2 Exquisite Firecraft

22 lands

Eidolon of the Great Revel would be fantastic here since you do not mind the incremental life loss and it will definitely hurt your average opponent more. I would main deck 4 of them. Also run a bit more burn cards. Stuff like Lightning Helix and maybe even Skullcrack. Vexing Devil really is not good in Modern since removal is so common in the format, I will admit though that the Devil is amazing in Legacy. Rift Bolt is a good option as well. If you run a good Fetch/Shock mana base then you can get rid of the Plunge's also. I agree with Demention about running the Temur Battle Rage and would honestly run those over the Artful Dodge especially since Dodge is such an obvious telegraphed play to your opponent.

MTGPALADIN on Blue-Red Cantrips

1.I would cut the Artful Dodge for Sleight of Hand. More cantrips will help you build spell count while filtering through the deck

  1. I agree drop the Gut Shot for Rift Bolt. This will give you needed removal so your creatures can attack while adding to spell count.

  2. Soul-Scar Mage for Monastery Swiftspear4.maybe run x3 Elusive Spellfist instead of Kiln Fiend because it gives its self unblockable and pick up one more copy of Stormchaser Mage for the haste.

  3. As much as it pains me to say delver of secrets instead of Blistercoil Weird. Neither one of these creatures are going to swing turn 1. Delver does have evasion and while it doesnt pump with spell count its still a very real clock and complements the Titan's Strength and the Assault Strobe.

I hope these suggestions are helpful, but you should make the changes you want for your deck.

Boza on Ultra Budget Mono Red Burn

If it is 50 bucks that you want to spend on burn, I would say that going for Mono R, but choosing your battles in terms of budgeting is the crux.

4 Bolts, 4 Lava Spike, 4 swiftspear and 4 Shrine of Burning Rage are the key pieces. Add to that 4 Rift Bolt for sure. Add to that 4 Pyromancer's Swath and the cheap red burn in the form of 2 mana 3 damage 4 Searing Blaze, 4 Lightning Strike, 4 Incinerate and 4 Burst Lightning. Add 20 lands and you are good to go.

Rift Bolt and Skullcrack are relatively cheap

Satyr Firedancer is a good creature as well for budget burn.

If you want more death, then you might consider Flame Slash or Lightning Axe. But if you want to hit players, Rift Bolt and Atarka's Command are also good choices. Atarka's Command would allow for more versatility.
