Viashino Heretic Discussion

Fantastic deck; one of the best mono-red burners I have seen thus far! Some personal favorites that I would add are:
Goblin Sharpshooter; just like Kumano, this little bugger works very well with an attached deathtouch-giving equipment. Also untaps every time something dies, which can make it somewhat of a creature wiper.
Viashino Heretic; one of the funniest artifact killers ever; especially because he also burns.
Fireball; just because every red burn deck should have one :)
Have fun playing!
FYI: Bxbx; lifegain does not just apply to combat damage. I would post the link to the rules indicating this, but TappedOut seems to have some issues with links today.

I like this :) I think Firebrand Archer, Harsh Mentor and Viashino Heretic can all add some excellent value to your deck. Other cards I would definitely consider would be Smash to Smithereens, Sizzle and Insult.

IQuarent first of all TYVM for all your suggestions and comments! I really appreciate it!
I was lucky enough that Matrixxx999 almost answered on all your suggestions for me and I fully agree with him.
Here's what I can add:
IQuarentsays... "Burning Earth. Redundant and over-costed. It's also a nombo with your Magus of the Moon/Blood Moon. I think almost anything would be better than this."
(3/14/2017: Blood Moons effect doesnt affect names or supertypes. It wont turn any land into a basic land or remove the legendary supertype from a legendary land, and the lands wont be named Mountain.)
I dont quite see nombo here cuz Burning Earth still punish my opponents for tapping nonbasic lands for mana, but redundantcy maybe. This deck still in testing regime Burning Earth is one of the cards that can be dropped out in the future.
Shivan Harvest - Moon & Magus as was mentioned before doesnt change land type for basic so Shivan work perfectly. Plus when first two are on the battlefield they become primary targets for removals (unlike Shivan) and mostly they just buy us some time.
Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle - was in the maybeboard, I try to avoid using lands that enters the battlefield tapped, but honestly I like this card plus it's fit great in deck strategy!
Fanatic of Mogis - nice card and can actually be good here. I need to give it a try.
Matrixxx999 Thx for helping out :-P
Viashino Heretic - nice creature, fit in deck strategy as well, one minus its need to tapp as activation cost. But I will consider this one.
Mindsparker - was in my maybeboard sure it will play nice against your main deck my friend ;-P
Rolling Earthquake - love it! need it! and I just dont know how I missed it! XD

Scab-Clan Berserker is probably worse then Eidolon of the Great Revel and Harsh Mentor and his Renown ability is the drawback it is true, but still he can stop (or hurt prety much) an any fast combo deck (especialy storm decks). In early game, this creature can become renown very easy, especialy considering that it has haste. In late game... well, as this decks builder said: "Burn them fast or die bright!" :P. I think this card is just corresponds to the general philosophy of the deck. But I have to admit that some time ago I cut this guy out of my Grenzo deck after some testing. But if AlmightyTentacle will decide to cut this card, then I would suggest to swap it for Viashino Heretic, Kari Zev, Skyship Raider or Mindsparker.
Eidolon of the Great Revel is a very good card (especialy in burn strategy and especialy in multiplayer), the goal of using such (sometime suicidal) damage dealers is to create the conditions under which You are losing life, but Your opponents losing MUCH MORE! Its like playing with Pestilence. Actualy for this reason I would like to suggest cards like Rolling Earthquake or Earthquake.
Can't say confidently about Burning Earth, cuz I never played with this card, but from what I see I can tell that this card can punish decks that realy greedy for mana, for example it can shut down or slow down some infinite mana combos (Peregrine Drake, Palinchron and infinite High Tide combos say hellow!). But for me it seems like it is to slow spell, but I may be wrong.
Never seen befor this card - Devastating Summons, pretty interesting. For sure I would create two 0/0 tokens and punch for 4 in each opponents face. Actualy this card could create triggers not just fo ETB but for LTB too: (6/15/2010: You may sacrifice zero lands as you cast Devastating Summons. If you do, youll put two 0/0 creature tokens onto the battlefield as the spell resolves. Unless some effect (such as the one from Glorious Anthem) is boosting their toughness, theyll be put into the graveyard as a state-based action. Abilities that trigger when a creature enters the battlefield will trigger, as will those that trigger when a creature leaves the battlefield.). And all this for 1 red mana, pretty juicy.
I have to agree with AlmightyTentacle about copy spells. Unfortunately You can't be aggresive with copy spells in Your hand when there is nothing to copy. In the deck like this one copy spells will be dead draw very often. And You will have to rely on the opponents spells, which is pretty situational I think.
Also, Sudden Demise is a graet spell, don't understand why I didn't see it befor! Need to test it in my Grenzo deck. :)
