Smothering Tithe would be good in here, especially against the annoying draw spam decks. Instead of Ill-Gotten Inheritance you could run straight up burn like Shock , Lightning Strike , Skewer the Critics , or - best of all - Banefire . Banefire can finish them off if you have 6 mana (you could cast it for X = 4, but you would have to be sure they don't have a counter).

Hope this could help, I don't really play Standard.

I like Skewer the Critics for Pauper burn. Side note: this deck has 58 cards in it.

Youll be defenitely able to compete in local events with a deck like this.

You might want to build a sideboard as well

The next set contains a new card that will pretty likely be good enough Skewer the Critics (just that you know)

Well vexing devil. Thats actually a pretty controversial card. If you would want to have the best possible burn deck without any budget constraints you shouldnt play it because its not good enough.

In your case since you are a new player and i assume that you dont want to go to the next GP or open its propably a fine card.

(by the way i assumed that you didnt want to spend tons of money for the deck and tried to make it as cheap as possible. I should propably me tion that)

Hey TheBooman,

Thanks for your upvote and your suggestion!

About Rhythm of the Wild : Other people have made the same suggestion before, but the only problem that it has is that its cost is , and at least I can cast it on the turn-3. That delays me a little bit the game, since in that turn I can cast Legion Warboss , Jadelight Ranger and Gruul Spellbreaker . Although, I will add it because is great if I go to cast some BIG-creature like Biogenic Ooze or Doom Whisperer .

About Skewer the Critics : I had never thought of adding it to the maindeck, because, normally, the Smepectacle is activated on the late-game (when I have some creatures to deal damage to the opponent), and that obliges me to pay if I need to cast it on the firsts turns. Althought, I will add them because it's a good removal, and I think you'll see it a lot on the tables.

Thanks again,

TheSimikBOat :)

When RNA drops consider swapping Skewer the Critics for Lava Spike . Skewer gets around Chalice of the Void on 1, and can hit any target.

How about Skewer the Critics ? Seems like it'll always be a bolt for this deck, and definitely seems worth a try.

As for Rhythym, I'd at least put one in side, because that uncounterable ability will help us in control, PLUS the Riot ability will help us be a bit faster and/or bigger.

Just my Two cents since I am now +1ed and probably gonna try building this
