Fist of the Mortal Flame

Modern BR (Rakdos) Burn Theme/Gimmick



enter image description here

Burn isn't unfamiliar territory, and Legacy is a home to some pretty oppressive decks. Let's see if we can blast their faces before they can go off.

Lightning Bolt - the classic burn spell.

Rift Bolt - a suspended burn spell.

Lava Spike - the closest thing to another Lightning bolt that we got. While it's sorcery speed and can only target players, it's still very potent.

Bump in the Night - the black Laa Spike that forces an opponent to lose life rather than deals 3 damage. Flashback is also a nicety.

Goblin Guide is a self-explanatory staple at this point. Played in every competitive format available, it's a fantastic T1 move that just jump starts your gameplan.

Monastery Swiftspear is another classic staple at this point. Prowess ensures it swings for a significant amount.

Eidolon of the Great Revel is another destructive and powerful creature that may hurt us, but assuredly hurts your opponent more.

Dark Confidant in a burn shells is spectacular, and a strong reason to run black. Card advantage in such an aggressive deck is imperative, and it’s more than probable that it won’t take as much heat as our Goblin Guides and Swiftspears are already applying immediate pressure.

Grim Lavamancer is a good strategy to pitch cards to burn people, and gets around threats too large for our aggro dudes.

Exquisite Firecraft - is a must against control decks, to really make sure the damage goes through.

Guerrilla Tactics - nifty way to work around discard spells.

Ensnaring Bridge - shuts down aggro decks.

Satyr Firedancer - another wonderful tool that deals down heavy creature decks; synergistic with our spells that only target opponents.
