This deck will rock once M13 comes out. My only problem with Seance is that the creatures don't have haste, and Fervor is being reprinted. c:

List looks pretty good. Like the original idea, but I noticed your early game is lacking. If you faced a GR aggro build that put in Ancient Grudge , your ramp won't be there, and your Bonfire of the Damned may or may not be able to clear the field, depending on whether or not Strangleroot Geist makes an appearance. Also, you also have a problem with Nihil Spellbomb . Yes, you could always hardcast your stuff, but you would still cast your Seance , wasting a turn and a card. That being said, I'd maybe suggest adding some alternate plans in your SB for decks that have the right answers for your deck, that way they waste cards in their SB to answer things that are no longer a part of your deck. Perhaps you could side in some Doomed Traveler s for early game blockers, since it can be used twice. Or you could add in Timely Reinforcements to answer GR aggro decks that can hurt you before you can drop your creatures.
I seriously like the deck, those are just some issues I'm observing after looking at your list for a few minutes. Your playtesting might prove me wrong, or right.

Delete your wall of QQ and maybe someone will want to post something worth while.
Where are your ETB effects? If you're playing around Seance , almost every card should benefit from it. Haste effect would help.
30-36 damage with Bonfire of the Damned ? No way. 20 at best turn 6. You do not have that much ramp and that'd be if you hit a 5 card combo. Try to get a more consistent win.
You only need 3x Seance .
Best thing going for you is Wurmcoil Engine - because you can put it in any deck, really, and be winning . . .
ps. You're next post should be shorter than mine -.-gl!

Okay, well thanks for the....well, I'll just say thanks. my wall of QQ (how am I upset?) is to inform those kind enough to look why I chose the creatures and spells because its likely they haven't seen said creatures used that way. If you're asking where my Entering the Battlefield abilities are, then I guess you didn't see the 13 of 17 creatures I have listed which have enter the battlefield abilites. The other 4 Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Wurmcoil Engine have devastating presence and they end games when I put them onto the field. Silverblade Paladin is 100 times better than Blade Splicer because it legitimately murders people, especially when I bring back a Gisela for free, soul bond her, give her haste with card:Slayers' Stronghold (3 total tapped mana for that...really breaks the bank) and solo swing for 28 turn 5. a well timed Arc Trail makes it easy, because 4 damage and two damage is enough to handle whatever blockers they have.
As for Bonfire of the Damned , 30 is totally achievable turn 7, even before I drop the 7th land. casting, copying, resurrecting, and sacrificing Solemn Simulacrum ontop of having 2-3 spheres out on the field can put me at 15-16 mana sources at the beginning of turn 7. It also thins my deck of 9 cards, coupled with the fact that I am cycling cards off the top with Faithless Looting means that I have a fairly decent chance of top decking a 4 of spell. turn 7 drops a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight before my draw step, kicking my damage from Bonfire of the Damned to double.
By all means think what you want, it makes zero difference to me.

Sunblast Angel perhaps? Fantastic card for a one-sided sweeper, and also a quite efficient beater. I really like the idea of the deck, and thought of making something like it myself.. But I'm a horrible deckbuilder ;)

Thanks for commenting my deck. I checked your deck too and is very different. I noticed that your deck has no m13 cards and i can think of some additions to it. I would love you see it with green playing Thragtusk and Elvish Visionary also some Primeval Titan and for some mana fix. But again. that would really change the deck but would give it different options also.

Very nice deck. Im relatively new to MTG but I think aggressive rush decks have a very good change to beat it since its rather slow.
Also , the entire deck relies on Seance right? Though it is in the deck 4 times and you got a nice amount of cards that make you draw cards, a deck with a lot of destroy enchantment or counter target spells would remove the key of ur deck that puts it al together and thus make it collapse.
And personaly I prefer Day of Judgment over Bonfire of the Damned . Day of judgement wont deal damege to ur oppenent, but bonfire of the damned requires to much mana if you can't play it for its miracle costs.

I love the deck. I have a junk seance deck that works OK for me, but I want to make it better without changing the color scheme. Help me?! Seance Me Please
