The Ambiguously Undead Trio

Standard Aggro B/R (Rakdos) Zombie

theichibun Score: 3


Description

The goal here is to get stuff out fast and hit you for a lot. Straight up aggro with some burn thrown in.

I considered Devil's Play, but I'm only running 20 lands so I usually would rather throw out some more creatures. And hitting for 4 is hardly worth it.

Tragic Slips, Brimstone Volleys, and Pillar of Flames to get rid of your stuff. Fervor because if I'm still going by the time I cast it I probably need everyone to have haste.

The two cards I'm questioning are Bloodthrone Vampire and Bloodcrazed Neonate. Having the sac engine is great, but if I can't sac for whatever reason it's just a 1/1 for 2. And I like the idea of a cheap card growing when I do damage.

Right now I have no sideboard. And no way to take care of flyers. And all my creatures are initially pretty small.

Cards that I have at least 1 of that I'm considering are in the Maybeboard. If I don't have any they're in the Acquireboard.

As always, all help would be great. I'm here to make it better, not to show off.

Updates

Playtesting online makes me not like the high priest so much. Stromkirk Noble and/or Vexing Devil would be nice since that would give me 16-20 one drops.
Fervor just wasn't working. Switched that to a pair of Skirsdag High Priests and another Brimstone Volley. I'm still looking for another 1 or 2 drop to switch the Bloodthrone Vampires to. Falkenrath Noble or Vexing Devil would be great if I had some. Please, somebody catch that hint.

If you can afford it, having a few card:Rakdos's Return in here would really help I think. Even if you only play it for a small amount of mana, it is highly useful to have card advantage with a deck that runs lots of low drop creatures. Really the burn is just an added bonus. If you can use it for 5 mana, it makes them discard most, if not all, of their hand. That could be very good for you.


I will try to help you come up with a sideboard but it will take just a bit of time.
