"Fires of Hell" Deck (Red Aggro)

I was able to talk to Carter H. at my local FNM this past week about this deck, which came in second the week before. Check this out:

Deck List

Creatures
x4 Stromkirk Noble
x4 Rakdos Cackler
x4 Lightning Mauler
x3 Ash Zealot
x4 Pyreheart Wolf
x4 Hellrider

Land
x16 Mountain
x4 Dragonskull Summit
x2 Blood Crypt

Other Spells
x4 Pillar of Flame
x2 Mizzium Mortars
x3 Searing Spear
x3 Dreadbore
x3 Brimstone Volley
Sideboard
x1 Searing Spear
x1 Mizzium Mortars
x3 Slaughter Games
x2 Rakdos Charm
x4 Flames of the Firebrand
x2 Bonfire of the Damned
x2 Zealous Conscripts



So the ideal hand to open with is 1 Stromkirk Noble, 1 Ash Zealot, 1 Pyreheart Wolf, 1 Hellrider, 2 Mountain and 1 of the dual lands.

With this deck, the idea is to throw around enough burn to destroy your opponent's creatures and to then flood them with yours. You can typically win by turn 4 or 5 if you can soulbond a Pyreheart Wolf to a Lightning Mauler on turn 3, and then put out a Hellrider on turn 4. Any creatures you attack with have to be blocked by two or more creatures, and for each creature that attacks your opponent, damage is dealt to your opponent. So, you can do pretty well with this deck.

I beat this deck with my Junk deck (video and details coming later...) this past Friday, but lost horribly to it the week before. So it really depends on what you draw and how you play this deck.
