My B/R standard deck

I don't think it's the greatest, I'm probably playing cards I should cut for better stuff because when I first made the deck they were cards I wanted to play for fun, but it does pretty well consistently. I've won I think 3 times with it, and don't usually miss the top 4 with it.


7 Swamp
7 Mountain
4 Sulfurous Springs
4 Graven Cairns (I can't say enough how awesome this land is)

I think I cut a Swamp or Mountain to run a Zoetic  Cavern (morph trick), but eventually just cut the Cavern.

4 Oona's Prowler
2 Nether Traitor
2 Dauthi Slayer
2 Changling Berserker
3 Akroma, Angel of Fury
3 Shriekmaw
1 Hypnotic Specter (foil)

I think when I made the deck I would have put in either more Nether Traitors or Dauthi Slayers if I had them (now I have full playsets but can't decide what changes to make). Shriekmaw is just good, and the Hyppie is there because a friend borrowed money from me and bought a pack with some of it, got the foil Hyppie and a Reya Dawnbringer in it, and gave them to me (he plays MTGO exclusively) and I had never had a hyppie before. Sometimes it's pretty good being in there. Akroma...a beater with relevant protections and morph, the berserkers help me cheat paying expensive prices to get Akroma out, and they have haste.

1 Lilian Vess
2 Profane Command
3 Rift Bolt
4 Sudden Death
3 Extirpate
4 Thoughseize
3 Loxodon Warhammer
1 Deathrender

The spell selection usually works pretty well, maybe half the time I can pull Thoughtseize on the first turn. I don't know what I would change, the deck usually works very well. One time I was able to extirpate this guys nova chasers both games in the finals one week...wow, that didn't go over well.

Well, there it is ^^

My sideboard sucks...there's no real metagame to board for, so it's pretty random. I can say I would have more Pyroclasms if I could find them...I had them in another deck and swapped them for something, and I don't remember where I put them then.

1 Hostility
1 Stronghold Overseer
1 Pyroclasm (would be 4)
2 Chandra Nalaar
1 Extirpate
1 Rift Bolt
1 Liliana Vess
3 Damnation
3 Taurean Mauler
(I forget the 15th...)



The deck seems descent, but I would run this altered version as I think its going to be more consistent for you:

6x Swamp
5x Mountain
4x Sulfurous Springs
4x Graven Cairn
4x Mutavault

4x Oona's Prowler
4x Dauthi Slayer
2x Neither Traitors
3x Changeling Berserker
2x Akroma, Angel of Fury
3x Shriekmaw

4x Rift Bolt
4x Incinerate
2x Profane Command
4x Thoughtseize
3x Sudden Death

3x Loxodon Warhammer


3x Chandra Nalaar
4x Damnation
4x Extirpate
4x Epochrasite
