AND far less consistent! But seriously, a one-drop creature would be great... I think the noble's a good idea, but Grim Lavamancer might even work better.
Tough call, that. I don't really have any brainsurges on the topic right now. I'll reference a friend of mine over to here, maybe he'll have an idea.

Not bad, but a couple things I noticed:
If you want to cast Grave Titan, you might need more than 8 black sources.
Overall, there's a lot of potential here. Olivia Voldaren is a great card and really fun to build around. Nice job!

Did you read the part where I turn my Titans into vamps?
and look here: R/B Olivia Bloodhall
March 1, 2012 3:17 p.m.
Stromkirk Captain pumps anyone Olivia grabs and anyone she hits and turns into a vamp, including the Titans. They can handle a 1 point sting for a +1/+1.
March 1, 2012 3:18 p.m.
Okay, clarification, Olivia steals creatures, and they're vampires, so they get pumped too. And he's not bad as is.
March 1, 2012 3:19 p.m.
Nothing as fun as shutting down Solar Flair by taking their Sun Titans and getting stuff back from my own graveyard...
March 1, 2012 3:28 p.m.
Also Olivia Voldaren is great spot removal, there is no limit other than Mana as to how many times you do one damage to some creature, are many...
March 1, 2012 3:30 p.m.
By the way, is Tribute to Hunger helpful? I loves me some sacrificing, but with Chandra's Pheonix and Shrine of Burning Rage, I probably wouldn't have even considered it. Although I'm going to guess that you're going to tell me that it's nescessary for Geist of Saint Traft, Thrun, the Last Troll , and occasionally titans. Am I right?
Also, I actually like your deck better than the R/B bloodhall deck!
March 2, 2012 11:08 a.m.
Thanks, that is a huge compliment, yes it's for Hexproof and you get a little life bonus. it cost 2B but it's better than Geth's Verdict because it's not BB to cost and you gain a little life and if done right(Frost Titan) you get a nice chunk of life.
Also, again thanks for the compliment.

i playtested and it seemed to burn out pretty fast, i found myself topdecking after a few turns. I love the idea behind this deck but i dont like red burn decks. I would splash in some more black and use straight up kill cards. the only red burn i could see staying in is Red Sun's Zenith . maybe some Stromkirk Nobles, and Volt Charge for adding counters to olivia and the noble...Also a big point for this deck is your curse. i would just add 4 of them, to ensure you get it out. +1 though on the idea, i may have to make a version of this but with more vamps.

Yeah, I know I'm going to be building some kind of RDW strategy in the next month or so, and this playlist is really intriguing me. What I can't decide is whether to go for straight aggro, like the previous RDW with more vamps, or just straight Vampire, or this lovely midrange style. I guess I'll just buy enough cards for all of them, and then just play whatever seems the most fun.
By the way people, Stensia Bloodhall is going for about $0.34 right now! Get it while it's still completely underrated!

Valentine35 you aren't playing the deck right, use burn to take out their creatures, attack, with Chandra's Phoenix they block, attack with a Zombie they block, then burn their creatures, or take all their creatures from them.

I'll take Team Oliviadeck:olivias-bloodhall v.s your buddies Jacobdeck:team-jacob-bitch, Edwarddeck:team-edward-please, & PavlovTeam Pavlov, any day...
March 3, 2012 1:56 p.m.
I've just play tested this deck a few times and found I was mana starved a lot of the time, maybe upping the mana base up to 25 might help? Burn decks do normally run a lot of mana. Just a thought :)
March 4, 2012 5:04 p.m.
Playtested this and had Shrine of Burning Rage on T2, Chandra's Phoenix on T3, then Olivia Voldaren on T4. All the while having Brimstone Volley and Tribute to Hunger in my hand. I could only imagine how devastating this deck is if you had Stromkirk Captain and Olivia Voldaren out by T4. You just keep up with that T4 combo and burn, burn, burn! Great build! +1
March 6, 2012 7:11 p.m.
I wish I could find room to effectively fit Hellrider in this deck.
March 13, 2012 11:03 a.m.
I know a few cards are going to be cycled out namely: Blackcleave Cliffs; Red Sun's Zenith ; (most likely)Shrine of Burning Rage; Volt Charge; Inferno Titan; & Grave Titan; Maybe even; Dragonskull Summit &Chandra's Phoenix(doubtful).
What would be some of your suggestions for replacements? I.e I'll most likely bring back Devil's Play for the Red Sun's Zenith s. Most likely I'll 1up my Incinerates, Brimstone Volleys, & Tribute to Hungers. I'm thinking Increasing Vengeance might fit well as a replacement for Shrine of Burning Rage(unless something better comes along or the reprint it in 2013). Now, what about the Titans, they's both been so loyal and faithful and they really enjoy becoming Vampires...
So what are your ideas/suggestions, do you agree/disagree with my ideas - all opinions wanted!!!!?!!!!
March 29, 2012 7:07 p.m.
theonyc They will be rotating out in the Fall(Wizards, has said they won't be reprinting them anytime soon), what should I replace them with?
March 29, 2012 7:16 p.m.
oh they did, wow glad you said that, i was about to bye a primeval or two, maybe more olivias and hell rider, or the vampire that gives +1/1 counter when a vampire hits an enemy, any of the above would work, I'm not good at rdw, I'm more of a combo person so probably don't listen to me
March 29, 2012 7:21 p.m.
I dunno... Moonveil Dragon, maybe? Something good will pop up in Avacyn Restored, I'm sure.
March 29, 2012 7:54 p.m.
I have three Olivia Voldaren Mainboarded and one Sideboarded(in-case someone else is using her).
Hellrider would be great if I added more flying creatures too... What else would you include?
Yeah, Wizards said "It's time for the Titans to go." - Repeating what many fans have been saying - asking for. I think Titans were a brilliant idea, set the stage/standard of large but not too large a creature, give them all a cool set of powers and make them the most common of all the Mythical Rares, great for the game. They should have created a sub-class of Avatar for them so like a legendary creature you can only have one out at a time yet make them less restrictive so both players could have one out at the same time but just not two of the same kind on their side.
M13, containing 249 cards, will drop on July 13, 2012!!! Rotates out when the next Block hit's this fall.
March 29, 2012 8:34 p.m.
I agree that the Titans were a very good thing for them to do; Honestly it's because of their ability to print new cards in a core set for the first time that they were made, and they did a Good Job with it... But it is time for them to rotate out. :)
X-Slayer Y cycle, c'monnnnnn....!

woodjt5 Said to me:
"Stensia Bloodhall is terrible. Seriously, just burn all of your cards right now if you think that playing it is a good idea."
Comment was left here: deck:big-purple I think it's funny, in response I told him, "Yeah it's terrible, so was Strip Mine everyone told me, so was Necropotence everyone told me..." His next two responses:
"Either way, Stensia Bloodhall sucks, and so does every deck you've ever played. Seriously, I hope you enjoy losing. How does it feel to go to FNM every week and just never get better? You will never win anything. You should really just play checkers. You are terrible. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
"Ahahahahaha your deck is mono-terrible. I just clicked on the link and was immediately 20% dumber. That deck will never win anything.<(in reference to this deck: deck:olivias-bloodhall-rdws) You'll be lucky to win a game against yourself, you dumb fuck."
I'm still waiting for him to post a Standard deck, so I can Play-test it.
March 30, 2012 3:13 p.m.
just read what this f*cker wrote, just leave a message to yeaGO! he will take care of him. Those dumbasses, if we can get rid of it, the community will be just better
March 30, 2012 4:11 p.m.
BigBruce I just laughed it off, people like that just have insecurity issues, they mostly net-deck and don't make it their-own, I'm really not bashing his personal attack, I'm pointing out how little he understands the game.
I mean, he's saying all this and doesn't even have decks posted on here... There are lot's of haters, they hate 'cause they feel inadequate.
March 30, 2012 4:18 p.m.
btw, have you tried Falkenrath Aristocrat and Hellrider? The haste thingy they provide is really good to finish off a game! And there's some synergy between the Aristocrat and Chandra's Phoenix as well, if someone tries to kill your big 4/1 haste flyer :P
Keep up the good work!

March 30, 2012 5:02 p.m.
Hell that is what I'm going to replace the Titans with!!!
March 30, 2012 5:04 p.m.
March 30, 2012 5:07 p.m.
and you don't need to run a full playset of those too...
March 30, 2012 5:10 p.m.
March 30, 2012 5:34 p.m.
Okay, we know that Hellrider's pinging ability isn't combat damage, so it won't activate curse of stalked prey, right?
42 comment!! WOO!

I misread that I thought it said Curse of Bloodletting.
March 30, 2012 11:56 p.m.
Ok ive been trying to build a vampire deck and reading this i thought maby someone can help me out at http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/vampiric-entourage/
its not the best but hoppfully you can see my direction and help me out.
March 31, 2012 10:15 a.m.
March 31, 2012 11:59 a.m.
i meant to say curse of the bloodletting, sorry, the reason I'm sad that the titans are dyeing is because I'm making deck:wgb-pod-1 and i wanted the last primeval titan, but i think I'm gonna hold my money, any help for that deck would be nice
March 31, 2012 3:56 p.m.
i normally agree with you, but correct me if I'm wrong, pod doesn't seem like your forte, I'm not saying its mine either though
March 31, 2012 10:34 p.m.
Pod is not my thing, hell artifacts in general are not my thing. I build decks and incorporate Artifacts.
March 31, 2012 10:46 p.m.
Pod with undying is the way to go IMO, getting two activation of one creature, whats not to like
March 31, 2012 11:17 p.m.
and sheoldrid, I'm playing all 4 of those, try checking it out, it does need lots of work though
March 31, 2012 11:23 p.m.
