So yesterday i was looking through my cards to see what kind of deck i could build since playing with my white life gain id getting kinda old. i looked through my red cards and found out that i have a bunch of pretty good burn cards... (lava axe is already my favorite) i tested it once and won against a friends blue deck. ill post the deck later but can i have some suggestions on good burn cards?

Koth of the Hammer is actually pretty good IMHO in mono-red builds. I mean it takes 2 turns to get his -5 ability and really, it is a sweet emblem. Considering your running red burn.

Oh, and dare I say, Furnace of Rath is one of the best red cards ever? (again, IMO)

I have 2 Chandra's in my deck just because you can discard Lava axes and use her final ability. Reverberate is also a nice card to have in a burn deck because lava axe then does 10 dmg, or 5 to the player and 5 to a creature, however you decide. Some flame servants might be helpful also for the double damage to red sorcery spells.

Also add Chandra's Spitfire, pretty cheap to bring out and the effect counts for each red sorcery you use. so they have the to be 10/3's with flying if you play your cards right.

Here is what I use for R Symbol

[Error: Invalid DeckID Format]

Not all burn as its actually a Sligh; but yes that is a potential of 20 damage on turn 2.
If your going stricly type 2 then I would suggest Goblin Guide, Goblin Bushwacker, Goblin Wardriver, Maybe the Goblin Chieftain, and pile in as many 1-2 drop burn cards as you can muster.

Cheers.
