Maybe I'm missing something.

What is the role of

Emberstrike Duo here?

I love the super $2 budget! "sweet fuck all" HAHAHA! XD I think you could make a few swaps.

These others are decent, might be worth swapping for something else:

I would also add one more mana so you can do less praying and more smashing face. :)

  1. Creatures I'd look into cutting
  2. Civic Wayfinder- there are tons of better ramp options on a stick then this dude
  3. Cliffhaven Vampire- really depends on your life gaining abilities and the consistency of those
  4. Daghatar the Adamant- more valuable in a deck where you plain on making and growing +1/+1 counters
  5. Dragon Hunter- a situational 1 drop, it's alright
  6. Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip- only good in a creature heavy deck.I would wiff on him about 1/5 uses in deck with 26 creatures in a 60 card deck
  7. Emberstrike Duo- I'm just not a fan. it requires spells to be alright
  8. Falkenrath Marauders- it is heavy on the red mana side, and it buffs itself if it can get through. There are better 5 drops in these colors
  9. Foundry Street Denizen How many red creatures do you plan on playing? because his ability only triggers when you cars a red one
  10. Gatekeeper of Malakir triple black to be useful, more than likely a dead drop most games
  11. Gilt-Leaf Winnower once again double black, and how often do you think it's ability will actually work
  12. Graveblade Marauder just not that good of a card
  13. Kargan Dragonlord another easy drop
  14. Nacatl War-Pride your mana base more than likely won't support this guy
  15. Ogre Battledriver double red and one off buff thats alright
  16. Seeker of the Way better in non creature spell heavy decks
  17. Skyrider Elf not legal in this deck
  18. Swordwise Centaur not a good 2 drop in this deck
  19. Thunder-Thrash Elder only good if you eat alot of dudes
  20. Artifacts I'd drop
  21. Godsend i am iffy on this, even in my mono brimaz this card can be hard to play, and isn't good until turn 6
  22. Spear of Heliod the double white might be hard to do. there are better anthem cards.
  23. Whip of Erebos you don't really have a lot of good etb creatures, and the lifelink might only help a little as well
  24. Sorcery's
  25. Feudkiller's Verdict there are better cards then this for a 6 drop
  26. Instant's
  27. Mardu Charm it looks underwhelming
  28. Enchantments
  29. Gratuitous Violence there are cheaper versions of this card

I really like this deck, I have a similar one that focuses more on spreading -1/-1 counters, which can be viewed here: Withering Hopes. I found Blowfly Infestation pairs extremely well with Crumbling Ashes and if you think you have enough non-wither black creatures like Emberstrike Duo, you could try Corrosive Mentor. +1 from me!

I'll try those options out by dropping the Boros Recruit for Emberstrike Duo and Bonesplitter for Fists of the Demigod. What do you think about dropping two lands in favor of Scar?

I think I would prefer Fists of the Demigod rather than Bonesplitter. You get more bonus as all your creatures are red AND black.

What about Emberstrike Duo? It can be really interesting, running so many multicolour spells.
