Diakaine on mono red burn/aggro budget

3 weeks ago

So the biggest problem. Is that this deck is running not great burn spells. Since I build my first burn deck cards have gone up significantly Lightning Bolt Lava Spike Shard Volley being the most notable. In casual cards like Pyroblast can be very powerful finishing out the game. Thermo-Alchemist Firebrand Archer Curse of the Pierced Heart can go a long way in getting in reliable burn every turn. Burn is supposed to be very fast and aggressive. No time to burn your opponents creatures. Maybe try looking at a pauper burn deck. All commons but very similar to its legacy counterpart

And with regards to Shard Volley over Lightning Bolt, while the land sacrifice means I can't play it straight up as a instant speed burn without some drawback, played on my turn as an enabler to pump Akki Raider and Bloodbriar provides more damage to your opponent in the long run.

I think that Akki Raider is just too pricey for a 3/1 2/1 or 1/1, and is it really worth it to play Shard Volley over Lightning Bolt? In place of the raider, I would strongly recommend Ruinous Minotaur.

I suggest a red white burn deck with 4 Lightning Bolt, 4 Lava Spike, 4 Rift Bolt, 4 Shard Volley, 4 Skullcrack, 4 Lightning Helix, 4 Searing Blaze, 4 Monastery Swiftspear, 4 Boros Reckoner, 4 Eidolon of the Great Revel, 13 Mountain, 2 Plains, and 4 Battlefield Forge. This deck is competitive, fun, and relatively budget. Good luck!

Wallamin on Rakdos Burn

Hi, as a fellow Rakdos Burn Player I'd like to offer a couple of suggestions to improve the deck, while still staying low on budget. I would cut most of the Three-Drops to improve the overall speed of the deck, killing the opponent quickly is the main advantage and appeal of playing any Burn List.I would especially lower the number of expensive creatures, the Guttersnipes in particular, but I think the Elementals and the Shredfreaks could be replaced as well.

Suitable replacements include Bloodsoaked Champion, Vicious Conquistador, Firedrinker Satyr, Zurgo Bellstriker, Soul-Scar Mage, Harsh Mentor and maybe Spike Jester.

I personally also feel that a Dark Confidant-like card benefits the Strategy and is one of the main draws to include Black in Burn. There are a variety of creatures that provide a similar effect and are very budget-friendly: Blood Scrivener, Asylum Visitor, Pain Seer, Ruin Raider. However, I had the most success with Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, which has menace to boot, supported by Gonti's Machinationss and Aether Hubs. Removing these creatures will be a high priority for your opponents, making Claim to Fame very powerful, bringing back your card advantage-tools.

I would also relegate the Terminates to the Sideboard and instead play Searing Blood in the Main, especially since you are running a playset of Graven Cairns. On a similar note, Sign in Blood could also be considered, since it does not only provide further provide card draw, but can be aimed at the opponent to deal 2 damage to the opponent in a pinch.

In terms of spells, I would definitely improve the number of Lightning Bolt-Effects. Shard Volley, Collateral Damage and Burst Lightning are fine options. And since you are willing to also play Sovereign's Bite, you might want to look into Two-Drop Burn Spells as well: Lightning Strike, Searing Spear, Incinerate, Incendiary Flow are all serviceable Burn. I would not cut the Bump in the Night for Sovereign's Bite, though. One Mana Burn is so much more important than the three Life gained. Playing both should be good, though.

And finally, I would drop the Lootings and Duresses from the Sideboard. You rarely have the time to spend your first turn looking at their hand, despite it being basically the only answer Rakdos has to cards like Worship or enchantments in general. I feel it is just too much of a tempo loss. And you can just make them lose life with Bump instead of dealing damage to them anyways. Instead I would propose you look into Molten Rain to fight Tron- and Utopia Sprawl-Decks and add more Rakdos Charms or Smash to Smithereens to fight artifacts.
