super cheap burn deck




This is a super cheap burn deck that will cost you almost nothing and can win games for you until you finish your "perfect" deck. Sideboard construction is up to you the fan of the deck and taker (please do use!!).

+1 if like, any comments can be made. remember this is to be a cheap red burn deck that can place top 4-8, and cost less than $25



Hey guys over 11000 vies and counting. Hope people are enjoying the deck and burn is always a cheap option to help you finish off your other decks.

i might drop the Stormblood Berserker and add in two Goblin Grenade might produce faster wins

+1 from me looks sick

Well with some price move and rotation it is still great for modern and works well too.

Kiln Fiend would make any people who play against it shit their pants, along with Assault Strobe check out my cheap rdw Nick Burn deck pulls turn 3 wins very easily

Wow. I've only playtested this deck a couple of times and I'm already a huge fan. And the price is just right, too. Great job!

this is one of the most enjoyable decks that i have play tested on here, whipping out harsh combos by turn 3/4 is amazing (i play a mana ramp most of the time so it feels weird for me!)

inspired to attempt my own

+1 !

I hope everyone who is playing this deck enjoys it and remember money is everything, when playing Magic.

I would say add in another Brimstone Volley and another Goblin Arsonist . use that with Goblin Grenade and you can hit for 11.

This deck is a lot of fun, thanks!

I changed it around a bit by taking out Stormblood Berserker , and adding in a few Goblin Balloon Brigade to the sideboard if I'm facing an angel deck, or something relying on flying.

In the main deck, I added in a couple card:Krenko's Command, a Krenko, Mob Boss , and a few Goblin Grenade (like a few other people suggested).

Considering the amount of instants you have, wouldn't Guttersnipe help a lot in this deck? Just a thought, I'm still new to magic, I could be very wrong.

firetruck102 says... #15

u need Goblin Grenade and Brimstone Volley and Guttersnipe otherwise you are good

May 22, 2013 7:13 a.m.

with only 1 goblin would not be worth it and Guttersnipe costing 3 mana is too slow

May 23, 2013 3:12 a.m.

jund01 says... #17

You might want to look into more 1 drops like Pillar of Flame , Spark Elemental , and Goblin Guide .

Check out my RDW deck: Ain't No Basic Mountain High Enough. (HELP PLEASE).

the main idea of this deck is to be a shell for plays to take and while being under $25 (as prices depend on location) and have that is able to win games and have fun with until he/she is able to finish a deck they would really like to play. thanks for the idea though.

IzexD says... #19

What about something like Five-Alarm Fire cause I mean 5 damage consistently is great

June 8, 2013 4:51 p.m.

yeoman67 says... #20

Furnace Scamp would be a good card too, also maybe Reckless Waif  Flip

June 9, 2013 3:32 p.m.

4hyperion says... #21

i would put in some Leyline of Punishment s or some Skullcrack s on the sideboard because lifegain screws over burn decks. otherwise, cheap, annoying, fast and fun. i like it

Sorry new to this way of writing, Volt Charge .

zahen says... #29

I like very much this deck but i would like to change Stormblood Berserker for other card (creature or instant spell) that would provide me some defense and attack (don't know if possible) do you have any suggestion to what i could change it to (to make the win faster, price is no problem for 4x cards)?


October 14, 2013 4:37 p.m.

zahen says... #30

was thinking about Young Pyromancer . What you think? (read comment #29)

October 14, 2013 4:40 p.m.

joshv_45 says... #31

I think if you add this cards as your Sideboard, these people will appreciate it (that includes me). :)

2x Brimstone Volley 2x Goblin Grenade 2x Reckless Abandon 2x Assault Strobe 2x Guttersnipe 2x Krenko's Command 1x Leyline of Punishment 3x Skullcrack

Acebaur says... #32

Wow for less than 25 bucks this deck is lots of fun. I liked it so much I bought it! I did make a few adjustments though and still kept it less than $25 (22 to be exact including shipping!)

I dropped Goblin Arsonist for Emberwilde Augur and Stormblood Berserker for Furnace Scamp . Then, to take advantage of their ability to sacrifice themselves I dropped Volt Charge for Brimstone Volley .

Finally I took out 2 Shock for 2 Staggershock mostly because the card has a cool ability and does more damage(also the art is awesome!)

Love the idea. Check out my take on it! Cheap Burn Deck

July 9, 2014 3:27 p.m.

jorelm510 says... #34

if i were u i would add Lava Spike its cheep and good

August 17, 2014 1:39 a.m.

Caseiscool90 says... #35

where be the Monastery Swiftspear? i know your trying to keep prices low but you should have 1 or 2 in the deck at least. especially with all the non-creature stuff. ill build it and play it at FNM ill post results!

January 13, 2016 2:55 p.m.

guttersnipe is a must

February 12, 2016 7:33 p.m.

Kidchaos2084 says... #37

Burst Lightning is strictly better than Shock.

KnotKing99 says... #38

two words satyr firedancer

March 8, 2016 9:19 a.m.

dillorr says... #39

I would say Mogg Fanatic instead of Goblin Arsonist

March 21, 2016 1:02 p.m.

If your aiming for cheap, Lightning Strike is cheaper than Searing Spear. Searing Blood is a great cheap alternative to Searing Blaze as they both damage a creature and a player if the creature dies, plus you won't need the landfall trigger. I would drop Volt Charge for another 2 drop 3 damage like Lightning Strike. I would also get rid of Stormblood Berserker for Keldon Marauders or Blistercoil Weird depending on how many triggers you can get. I hope you see this comment and that my suggestions are helpful to you. Have fun burning.

Shadow_Tack says... #41

Lava Spike Rift Bolt around the same price as lightning bolt.

June 12, 2016 4:50 p.m.

ThatGuy24 says... #42

What about adding some Fire Servant ?? I know it is slow getting out, but if your opponent drags it on then this could possibly help finish them ??

June 30, 2016 10:14 a.m.

Indr4neel says... #43

Lol, a deck that costs more on mtgo than in paper

August 19, 2016 4:23 p.m.

Shadow_Tack says... #44

@indr4neel that tends to happen when you run kiln fiend, that thing is 6 tix each on mtgo because pauper

August 19, 2016 4:46 p.m.

This deck is really cool and epic!Thanks for some cool suggestions

October 2, 2016 9:24 a.m.

SlashDK says... #46

I think it works well, maybe you could Put in a Krenko, Mob Boss

October 12, 2016 3:04 a.m.

ForeverNewb says... #47

Just bought on TCG. Thanks for putting this together!

November 25, 2016 11:38 a.m.

Wonky.wombat. says... #48

How about Burst Lightning instead of Shock, then add some Quest for Pure Flame

December 19, 2016 9:01 p.m.

dankmim says... #49

Sideboard Gut Shot?

May 1, 2017 9:11 a.m.

I'd like to see a Monastery Swiftspear but I'm just a big fan. There's Satyr Firedancer, he'll let your burn spells have double effect. Young Pyromancer is really good too.

October 2, 2017 11:07 a.m.

Nice! I've just made a similar one.
