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

— Oct. 8, 2012

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.

Some Quick Changes — Oct. 4, 2012

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.
