Fun deck to play. What I have learned is that it's best to ignore creatures until they cannot be ignored. The exception, of course, is Searing Blaze which gets both a creature and the opponent.

Not a lot of strategy as it is a linear deck idea. My one suggestion might be against blue-based decks: have patience once they get counter spells up and running. Get a nice full hand of burn spells and then start unleashing them all at once. Their counter spells generally cost more than the burn spells, so the pace is in the burn deck's favor when you have a full hand. This isn't advice that hits every time, but it works well enough to get a decent chance at beating the blue decks...

Overall, it's fast, fun, and very competitive!

I have substituted Firebrand Archer with Ghitu Lavarunner and it is a solid upgrade. The 2 toughness makes a huge difference. Firebrand Archer was way too easily removed before it became effective.

I'm also changing to 1x Shard Volley and 1x Magma Jet. It's a subtle change, but I have been happy with the results.

This deck has been a lot of fun to play and is extremely competitive. I see that some recent iterations are running Gitaxian Probe, and I might very well try that.
