My Red deck wins! I've had this deck since Innistrad and have been evolving it ever since.
The deck relies on early damage from Heroic and Prowess on the Swiftspear and the Crusader, and then hasting up a board that leaves your opponents optionless. Their blockers dont stand a chance against the burn or the number of creatures.
Monastery Swiftspear - Prowess and haste for quick damage.
Akroan Crusader - Poops out hasting 1/1's!
Titan's Strength - Good buffing and targeting, also scries.
Coordinated Assault - Great for heroic and prowess, good combat trick.
Lightning Strike - Stupid not to run this.
Searing Blood - Quick blocker removal that can shovel more damage onto your opponent.
Valley Dasher - Has his flaws, but a hasting 2/2 for 2 is nice.
Goblin Rabblemaster - Really pressures your opponent to get blockers out and is difficult to handle.
Minotaur Skullcleaver - 4 hasting, can be a scary threat.
Flame-Wreathed Phoenix - Very annoying to deal with, leaves your opponent in a tough spot.
Purphoros, God of the Forge - A later game play, but can help to finish off an opponent who has just managed to cling on.
Arc Lightning - While it is of higher mana cost and is a sorcery, it doesn't waste damage and can take out multiple blockers.
Blinding Flare - To clear the path!
Hammerhand - Can speed you up a little, often siding out a higher mana card.
Harness by Force - For dealing with really big threats, turning them against their owner is a good back-up plan.
Scouring Sands - For slicing a token or another aggro deck up.
Hammer of Purphoros - Slow, but if you find yourself getting stalled out, it can save your ass.
Suggestions are appreciated!
Goblin Rabblemaster needs needs needs to be in here. It works well with Purphoros, God of the Forge. And THANK YOU for utilizing Flame-Wreathed Phoenix. I feel it's still a very strong card. especially for a 4 drop. If it was a 5 drop, maybe not so much.

Not sure if I like the Aggressive Mining in here...I would much rather see maybe a Hammer of Purphoros so there is no doubt that your creatures have haste, and if you do run into mana flooding, you could just sac one and get a token with haste, which works well with Purphoros, God of the Forge also.

I thought that since the deck didn't really have any other goblins he wouldn't be as strong, but since you pointed that out, I realize his synergy with Purphoros, God of the Forge is actually really good, and it helps that he is a three drop when I've been looking a little four-drop heavy. Now the trick is just getting the rabblemasters without hurting my pockets too badly...

Altac Bloodseeker has always seemed rather interesting and potentially powerful against weenies or the mirror match
