My first thought looking at this quickly, is why do you have so many single cards? You would be much better off if you had multiple copies of the cards in the deck. If you have them. use some Oblivion Ring s instead of Arrest . It's just better.

I have one oblivion ring but to answer your first question... Thi is a Kitchen style deck. Since i am low on money I cant buy cards on or offline. And even if I wanted to I dont have a card shop or anything like it near me.

Ok. Was just curious more than anything, so basically you built it with whatever cards you have access to. Another thought, if you have the cards, is to maybe focus a little less on buffing your creatures and using some more burn spells in place of the buffs.

Could you give me a list of cards you think I should take out?

I personally would cut your artifacts outside of Chalice of Life  Flip and Shrine of Burning Rage as well as card:Builder's Blessing. That would cut you down to 60 cards. Staying at 60 cards with so many singletons in your deck would help you get your better cards easier.

what about golden urn? should I add that in? (And i was going to take out builder's blessing anyway since my friend wants one for his r/w goblin deck.) And also I have to ask about the Myrs. Are you sure?

Here are my extra red "Burn" Spells,

3x Thunderbolt

Heat Ray

Flame Slash

Jaws of Stone (I doubt this one will be added)

Pillar of Flame

Burn at the Stake

Bloodfire Kavu

Bloodfire Colossus (The Last Resort NUKE)

And Im saying the next one because since i have many red instants/sorceries... it could help. card:Chandra's Phoenix

Almost forgot to sayAggravate , Alpha Brawl , Volley of Boulders , Ember Hauler Burning Oil , Artillerize , 4x Fling , Vulshok Sorcerer , card:Cosi's Ravager

I didn't mean the myr's, I was talking the non-creature artifact cards.

Some cards to consider adding from what you listed: Flame Slash , Pillar of Flame , card:Cosi's Ravager, and the Oblivion Ring you mentioned earlier. I'd cut the Pacifism s and the Burden of Guilt .

The reason I say to cut Pacifism is you can use the burn to kill off the creatures as well, so they aren't as necessary for you. If my math is right that should be 60 cards still.

For the urn, maybe cut Riot Ringleader . You don't have a lot of humans to really take full advantage of his ability.

should I replace 3 or 4 plains for mountains

If you make the tweaks to the deck on here, I can answer that easier for you.

September 13, 2012 8:07 p.m.

I made the edits. All i need to edit are the lands (which I want your opinion on) and a double check of my spells. (Also I obtained another Goldnight Redeemer today so if you could find a place for her it would be great)

To fit the other Goldnight Redeemer I'd get rid of War Report . The redeemer has a similar effect that is more powerful.

For the land I think 13x Mountain, 9x Plains should be pretty good.

thanks I will edit later but... where were you?
