Interesting concept! I would find a way to get around Skullcrack and things of that sort as they are things.

You need answers to lifegain decks. Skullcrack is perfect for side.

Really great deck. It showed me some awesome burn cards I didn't know existed: Searing Blood and Skullcrack . I'm sure they'll workout nicely in my R/W deck.

@Kozelek: I like Magma Jet also because it hits opposing dudes which Skullcrack does not. I do see your point and as soon as I get some more cards, this card will get into the shopping block first.

Hi DexztrO,

I'm afraid your deck would be a bit too slow for modern tournaments. I'd start off by switching out some of your bigger, less efficient creatures for cheaper efficient ones.Bloodfray Giant , Hellhole Flailer , Rakdos Shred-Freak , and Splatter Thug probably just aren't good enough for modern. Madcap Skills doesn't really fit either, as it makes it too easy for your opponent to 2 for 1 you.

I'd trade those spells for some combination of these:

Goblin Guide

Grim Lavamancer

Hellspark Elemental

Eidolon of the Great Revel

Ash Zealot

Monastery Swiftspear (if you add more non-creature spells)

There are many good spells that go directly to your opponents face as well:Lava Spike , Bump in the Night , Rift Bolt , Skullcrack , Searing Blaze , Flames of the Blood Hand

If you dropped your 4-drops and most of your 3 drops, you could go down to 19-20 lands..

I see why you chose Magma Jet for the scry2 but at only 2 damage I think Skullcrack with the can't be prevented and can't gain life is better

finde Daring Skyjek ned so gued. abr ka, wennd immr battalion hesch, cha er scho recht haue. wur abr eher Firefist Striker spiele. evtl sogar Crossway Vampire odr Arena Athlete .
finde Pillar of Flame chli z schwach. s isch zwar sichr gued. aber ned sichr wie gued. evtl eher paar sideboard und Ride Down ine neh?
Skullcrack wur i 4 im sideboard spiele. geg linegain wetsch ned spiele, das git viel zviel ziit. darum grad 4 ine neh wenn de gegner lifegain het. und statt Smelt und War Priest of Thune wur i uber Wear / Tear nahdenke

Monastery Swiftspear isn't exactly better than Goblin Guide , but they're certainly both better than Vexing Devil or Hell's Thunder. I would also add Skullcrack , it's excellent for preventing life gain. Price
