What mistake was corrected?

Hellkite Igniter and Hoarding Dragon are what stood out as weak dragons. Moonveil Dragon , Scourge of the Throne or Thunderbreak Regent fit a utility role currently missing from your Zirilan package.

Akoum Hellkite and/or Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle seem appropriate for a mono red deck with 24 mountains.

Is Molten Disaster not a better upgrade to Earthquake? Split second is a powerful ability.

Glorybringer Excellent removal at 5cmc // Herald's Horn Cost reduction and potential card advantage // Flameshadow Conjuring Pairs well with Valkas, Warstorm, and Dragon Tempest // Scourge of the Throne Even more extra combat // Nesting Dragon Dragon Tempest and Valkas triggers, and excellent blockers with crucible of fire //

This deck looks nasty in a good way.

Cavern of Souls : keep stuff from getting countered!

Buried Ruin : b/c a tenth of your deck is artifacts

Dump Pillar of Origins , something like Mind Stone you can at least trade in for a card when you have plenty of lands

Scourge of the Throne , Steel Hellkite and Nesting Dragon are solid as well.

We would second many of the suggestions provided by hfvalenz. We know it's a bit expensive, but Scourge of the Throne is a fantastic dragon; better than Hellkite charger in our opinion, as attacking again does not cost such an insane amount of mana.

We would also recommend Price of Glory , as it is a great deterrent against anyone using instants or instant effects in other peoples' turns that require mana (and considering your current card choices, it won't affect you much).

Last but not least, we would ask you to consider Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Flameshadow Conjuring , as they provide fantastic, relatively cheap value in a deck with this many powerful creatures.

Happy brewing and playing!

blazestudios23, thanks for the suggestions! Card draw can be tricky when trying to balance the other themes of the decks. Have you tried adding something like Smothering Abomination ? Adding cards like Altar's Reap , Bankrupt in Blood , Costly Plunder , Live Fast , and Sign in Blood are all pretty swell. If you're feeling like being generous, Seizan, Perverter of Truth is great, since he spreads the love and the cards.

Mana is solved through the use of handy trinkets like Ashnod's Altar , Phyrexian Altar , and the signets. Maybe I'm just extremely lucky, but the number of games that I've been mana-screwed has been pretty low. Palinchron could be added in for kicks, if you're hurting for mana.

My hesitation with Black Market is that it takes a while for it to get up and running, and it usually gets removed before it can contribute anything remotely useful. I might add it to the sideboard, in case I'm playing another deck with a lot of creatures dying, but I don't think its inclusion would be merited by my creatures alone. Phyrexian Tower would be absolutely great if it weren't a once-a-turn kinda thing. After I tap it, either for one mana or two, it becomes a dead card until next turn.

Neheb, the Eternal makes it a little tricky to keep my opponents' life totals in check, which is necessary to make sure Marchesa, the Black Rose 's Dethrone ability triggers. Sure, the extra mana is nice, but keeping my opponents' life totals in check until I'm ready to end the game is easier done without Afflict. While Scourge of the Throne looks like it would be an awesome card, I would only consider it to be a win condition. Again, this ties into makuing sure my opponents' life totals aren't so low that I wouldn't be able to trigger Marchesa, the Black Rose 's Dethrone, which the deck is based around.

Thanks so much for your suggestions! You've definitely given me more options to consider!
