Creature - Devil
At the beginning of your upkeep, reveal the top card of your library. Any opponent may have you put that card into your graveyard. If a player does, Sin Prodder deals damage to that player equal to that card's converted mana cost. Otherwise, put that card into your hand.
I think this is much more viable than SDT in a burn deck. Yes it's weak to removal, but so it SDT. It's a 3/2 so it swings for 3 if needed and has evasion, it gives you an extra card or free damage or thins out land draws (face it, once burn hits 3 land, we should be in full swing), it also fuels lavamancer. As a one off in legacy burn, this card I think is a new staple.
SDT is actually not weak to removal at all (basically the only way to remove it after it resolves is with Krosan Grip or in response to an activation of the draw ability).
The extra draw is pretty nifty, although I see this as more of a synergy than a replacement for Top. The stats and menace aren't too relevant when it doesn't have haste because it's easy to remove. I agree with the guy who said at 2cmc it's a broken dark confidant though. At 3CMC it's questionable because we are a 19 land deck after all.
