Standard format is only the cards that have been printed most recently. About the past year i believe. You might want to change the tag to casual or modern so more people will look at it. Im new to the site as well and have had some trouble navigating it too. Anyway, that Spike Jester is a good dude but having to put non red lands in just to possibly draw and play one card is generally not a good idea. Try to go lots of artifacts or lots of solid red burn. Anything mono red with haste should help you and instants that deal damage will help kill your opponent or his creatures which then lets your creature heavy deck deal damage when attacking.

Claim / Fame could work really well with Spike Jester. Kolaghan's Command could we useful as well. You might also consider Cut / Ribbons.

i think this needs to go all aggro

Spike Jester / Monastery Swiftspear / Claim / Fame seems like good cards to add

maybe some Blightning

The only thing that would make Hellspark Elemental not as good as Spike Jester is if I have a Fists of the Demigod in my hand. That would make my Spike Jester a 5/3 with haste, first strike, and wither. Hellspark Elemental would only be a 4/2 with trample, haste, first strike. I would take either one of those creatures, but I can't rely on Fists of the Demigod to show up in my hand most games. I will probably add the Hellspark Elemental and eliminate my Rakdos, Lord of Riots and Rakdos Shred-Freak. Although I think I already got rid of those for some Hellhole Flailer.

Hi, I'm playing something similar to this. I would suggest maybe taking out the 2 Rakdos, Lord of Riots or 4 Spike Spike Jester and instead using 4 Hellspark Elemental. Hellspark can be used if sent to the graveyard from Faithless Looting and has better value then Spike Jesters with trample and haste. Since you are playing Aggro and trying to end games quickly his sacrifice ability doesn't hurt you too much. Also I could see Spark Elemental doing a similar job.

I only put Spike Jester in for early game card draw with Infiltration Lens hoping the 3 damage would be a big enough threat for the opponent to block and me draw 2 cards. I do like the idea of Monastery Swiftspear though.

I would replace the Spike Jester with Monastery Swiftspear because it combos with Alesha and has haste. It's a great turn 1 play.

This deck seems to be trying to do 2 things at once which I think works against it.

I would cut all of these cards as they are way too slow for a deck that wants to be aggro:
-2 Cut / Ribbons
-1 Devils' Playground
-2 Insult / Injury
-2 Blightning

I would add in more of the Modern staples to control/stall the board until you land a Master of Cruelties. Something like:
+2 Terminate
+1 Lightning Bolt
+4 Vexing Devil

Manaforge Cinder is wasted spot in a 2 colour deck that isn't particularly mana intensive either way. Something like Rakdos Cackler would suit the aggro theme better. Same goes for Spiteflame Witch, I think Spike Jester would be a better fit. Lyzolda, the Blood Witch could be replaced by a 1 off Gurmag Angler or Mogis, God of Slaughter as I don't think you want to be saccing creatures.

Damn just checked the current price of Vexing Devil, that's a tough include at that price. Good luck with the deck, anyhow!
