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!
Thanks! Thats a good idea, not sure what i would drop for it.
Cool deck, I would take out Thatcher Revolt it's not that good.
+! from me!
Bone Splinters is another nice interaction with morbid/thatcher revolt/etc
That's actually a really nice idea, didn't think of that. Also it's good with the aristocrat and Blood Artist.
Have you considered putting in would be a good addition, arguably a bit expensive, but has the added versatility to pump an .
Perhaps you can consider falkenrath torturer and vexing devil in your deck list. :-) they fit with the revolt and high priest..
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.
I meant Falkenrath Torturer in my previous statement not noble.
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.
have you thought of splashing white for Sorin, Lord of Innistrad ? might help with the idea of Killing Wave yourself for 0 with Blood Artist that also will lead to the idea of using Intangible Virtue and Lingering Souls but either way +1 for me
I think Mortarpod and Stormblood Berserker would be an interesting addition.
Great deck idea +1
If someone can give me some advice in my Angelicnator , I would be grateful!
try Noxious Revival in there instead of bone splinters, i run a similar deck and this works wonderfully to bring back a miracle Bonfire of the Damned or a Thunderous Wrath , also any other creatures or spells like a Killing Wave , etc.
You're going to love Vampire Nocturnus when it comes back in M13.
deck:standard-the-art-of-blood my take on a blood artist deck please +1
Damn, this deck is total destruction, just the way I like it.
@MTG_Player will do.
Wow, excellent take on the R/B burn and Blood Artist. +1
Great deck! I love it - consider adding Witchbane Orb to your SB for nasty things like card:Curse of Death's Hold (which will make it difficult to cast/keep your artists and aristocrats (and thatcher revolt tokens).
I adore how Mainboard is a creature rush with a sac trigger as offense and defense, and your sideboard can change the feel nearly to a MBC deck.
I'm in love with this deck! Oh how I wish I could make a variant of this! I just dont have Aristocrat or most of these cards to begin... I'm still going to try!
Id trade out 2 Nobles for some Vexing Devils. I tend to think of the Devils as less of a creature, and more of a 4 damage Lightning Bolt.
Also not to be a jerk or anything, but if anyone could help me with my mill deck it would be greatly appreciated, here is the deck: deck:ub-kill-and-mill
You might want to consider something like Reassembling Skeleton it's a good card that you can sac every turn.
I would but I'm keeping my deck post scars and m12 so i can easily change it when ravnica comes out.
this is very cool, dig it! I'd like see what you can do against my zombies :-)
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 ?
Im trying to keep my deck post scars block. Ive gave some thought on Liliana but she is alittle slow and my deck isnt based around discard. For 3 mana nighthawk is a better play imo.
your deck its not rakdos, its vampires, you need vampire nocturnus
Yes the deck is rakdos, its red and black. There isnt enough black in the deck for him, and most my vamps already are flying.
Hey bro, please check out my own vampire deck Nosferatu. You might be able to get some idea off it.
Crap. Wrong link. Here it is though.
Killing Wave is not that good because when you cast it...you are the active player so you have to choose which creature to sacrifice first
That doesn't change how it works in my deck, with blood artist on the field they lose life wether they decide to keep it or not.
Pillar of Flame is a great burn spell, it exiles anything toughness 2 or less, awesome for card:Geralf's Messenger and the like
Would also work to let you throw down Aristocrat with Lord down for 2 mana
I like this deck just wondering though is it just as good as it was in the old standard? I don't know how much its changed since then. +1
Absolutely love it, building one very similar soon.
Just finished updating my deck based on your awesome deck :
i'd be glad if you shared your wisdom : Hit Fast Hit Hard (Help !)
And ofc +1 !
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 .
Why is this marked as standerd you need to update it or you will git flagd for liying
I haven't updated this in almost a year. This was standard the last time I looked at it.
Thank you now I'm up voting the deck its a thery fun deck I just need you to make it say modern or extendid
A card that in many circumstances is as useful or more so than Rakdos's Return is Blightning which costs three to basically do what Rakdos's Return does for 5. it is usually better, because it uses less mana to do a similar thing, meaning other plays can be made.
