Any tips and comments are appreciated! +1 if you like it.
Bump in the Night ; 3 damage for 1, never can go wrong with that.
Brimstone Volley ; great burn with awesome morbid trigger ability.
Dreadbore ; Amazing kill spell anti super friends or and deck with planeswalkers in it, plus its a great creature kill spell in general.
Hellrider ; with the rise of rakdos rush decks, this card came out of nowhere.
Pillar of Flame ; 1 drop burn and removal. Helps things like me play rakdos or things cost less when hes in play.
Searing Spear ; best burn spell in standard. If better burn comes out its going in.
Stromkirk Noble ; puts on the early game pressure and he gets bigger the longer he's out on the field.
Thundermaw Hellkite ; great turn 5 card, taps any fliers, so you can deal alot of damage fast. Also amazing against tokens.
Tragic Slip ; good kill spell against big thing since creatures always die.
Vampire Nighthawk ; best. reprint card. ever.
Vexing Devil ; Either they take the damage or let me have a 4/3.
Bonfire of the Damned ; great for clearing the field for me to attack.
Rakdos Charm ; a very versatile card with responses to artifacts reanimate deck and tokens.
Rakdos's Return ; great against mirrors and contol. clears their hands of any responses
Slaughter Games Shuts down any combo decks or get rid of any threats their decks have.
Appetite for Brains ; gets rix of big threats or planesWalkers
Duress ; goof against control so you can clear their hand of anything you,need.
Thanks to everyone who voted and left a comment! You guys are great!
I found this deck nice.
I think that a couple Stromkirk Captain would do nicely. Wouldn't put falkenwrath noble because you won't be able to ramp it up enough without constant humans. I also like the idea of maybe a Bloodflow Connoisseur because she will get +1/+1 no matter what she east. And with all those vampires attacking a Rakish Heir wouldn't be terrible.
I am wondering how often you control 5 or more Vampires and are able to transform Bloodline Keeper. Perhaps you dont really care of Bloodline transforms at all. Your lands look in line for a nice mana curve...I imagine your first hand isnt always disappointing. Or is it? Dropping one Thatcher Revolt and one Bone Splinters gives you an excellent mana base to really drive this deck.
Wow, this is an awesome deck idea for certain. Ive been waiting for someone to come up with a solid B/R Burn type for the Standard game for some time now. This is the firs t ive seen since Avacyn! Ok, first off my favorite combo here is Falkenrath Aristocrat and Thatcher Revolt . However, I dont think you have quite enough humans to make that dependable on with four copies. If i were you, id drop Falkenrath Aristocrat down to 2 along with the 2 Bloodline Keeper Flip s. It could probably use 2 copies of Olivia Voldaren as well. Havengul Vampire is an interesting card from the new set that would work great with this deck, although I would probably include only one copy. Ravenous Demon Flip would have to go, though I too agree its an interesting idea. Finally, Killing Wave would unfortunately have to get taken out of the main deck, as you have a good number of low mana costing creatures, as well as some token generators. This could easily backfire. I would just put two more copies of Bonfire of the Damned . You'd probably want to at least go up to 23 lands too, theres no mana acceleration here despite all the low costing creatures.
Mimic Vat ? Sac Your Creatures, Put Them Under Mimic Vat , Make A Token Of The Sacrificed Creature, And Then Do That Every Turn... You Have One Token A Turn And Can Keep Sacking Them For Counters, Indestructible, ETC... And I Would Take Bloodline Keeper Flip Over Demonlord of Ashmouth .... Also Have You Thought About Adding 2x Liliana of the Veil ?
Vexing Devil doesn't do anything in this deck. You want to be building up your board-position starting on turn-1, not casting a burn spell and having nothing to show for it, especially when you're building up to Hellrider .
