I want to bring something original to FNM, I don't care if it loses. Here's what I'm thinking:

Turn 1: Shock land
Turn 2: Bloodthrone Vampire
Turn 3: Steal threat via Traitorous Blood , attack, sacrifice to Bloodthrone Vampire
Turn 4: Copy Thragtusk via Evil Twin /Clone
Turn 5: Steal Thragtusk via Zealous Conscripts, attack, sacrifice to Bloodthrone Vampire
From there, I'll keep stealing/coping threats. Beguiler of Wills could make things interesting if I can keep her alive.

I need help with the 2 and 3 drops, not really sure what to do there. Sideboard is devoted to countering control decks as this will be super weak against anyone not running creatures. I don't own Olivia Voldaren or Falkenrath Aristocrat , so they will not be added. Suggestions and +1's are welcome!!!

why Bloodflow Connoisseur in lieu of something like Desecration Demon ? Also, unless you have some evasion for Beguiler of Wills you will rarely get to use her, try Mizzium Skin , Undying Evil , or Unhallowed Pact for some evasion/keeping the creature you stole.

Wrong Bolas in the maybeboard, buddy xD

@Bababad - Bloodflow Connoisseur is a decent sac engine for my steal 'n sac gameplan and helps round out my creature curve. Desecration Demon would be interesting, he's going to the maybe board. I do need to protect Beguiler of Wills , I might main board a few Negate .

@Jp3ngu1nb0y - hahaha, you mean he isn't standard?!?

get that Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker in your mainboard asap. He's only like 5$ bucks right now, So picking up another one wouldnt be terrible on the finances.

You may try card:Conjurer's Closet for gain control of creatures FOREVER!!!

Here are some really cool cards that I would suggest: Dominus of Fealty, Roil Elemental, and Slave of Bolas. Here is my Steal Stuff deck that has those cards and more if you want to have a look: TAKE ALL OF THE THINGS!!!

The main part I'm confused about in this deck is where is the Thragtusk? You mention it in the description but it is nowhere to be found.
