I would say you need the Bonfire of the Damned mainboard. Unfortunately, i can't think of a replacement.

In my humble opinion, I feel like your curve wants to be faster. You've currently got 12 five-drops, 8 four drops and four six drops. A Heartless Summoning will make your deck spin, but no heartless leaves you with a full hand. You can't always mulligan until you have one in my experience.
I think you need to focus on having a solid game plan, doing what red and black do best until you draw one. I would probably main deck the Ultimate Price s and possibly some Searing Spear s, maybe consider some Rakish Heir s and Olivia Voldaren . Rakish Heir makes me pee my pants, especially when you drop it the turn after a nighthawk.

I appreciate the comments, they're exactly what I'm looking for.
@Zarum - I probably do, as this deck folds to aggro pretty hard unless you get somewhat lucky. It's rather midrangey. Soon I'll switch out the Falkenrath Marauders for the bonfires and start playtesting that strategy, because even though the card has potential... it's just really bad in just about every respect.
@jminute14 - I agree that the curve is messy but right now we're a bit lacking on good Heartless Summoning creatures to use post-rotation. Playtesting has been going fairly well actually, where about 1 in 10 games leaves me dead in the water after multiple mulligans. Heartless Summoning tends to get into my hand fairly easily.
Ultimate Price is too iffy to maindeck, in my opinion. At least until we get all the spoilers and a metagame begins to take shape. The other cards you've suggested are good ideas and I'll try to fit them into some playtests when I can. Searing Spear in particular is almost interchangeable with Ultimate Price for my purposes!

I know what you mean, my deck deck:lichs-burning-vengeance started as a heartless summoning deck, and is evolving slowly. Into a worse deck at this point lol.
I agree, once the meta evolves we'll know how good Ultimate Price is.
