Quote from MRdown2urth....I've seen those decks win quite a bit. Again, probably depends on the playgroup...and I don't know what "Tier 1" in a casual format means.
Quote from bl@z3Its hard to believe that no one has anything to say about a deck that does 31 damage by turn 3 or 4 wow maybe ppl are just to stund jk. Well I like my deck and proud that I can build such a deck without messing with net decks

Main win condition is same as Pyromancer Ascension but with an additional win condition with Burning Inquiry and Bloodchief Ascension.
If you have active Pyromancer Ascension and Bloodchief Ascension, play Burning Inquiry for a massive damage hit.
Should Jace, the Mind Sculptor be dropped for 3 Pyroclasm?
Is this deck workable? Please comment.
Quote from AitrusI made a gimmicky grixis bloodchief deck a while back that used staggershocks and bolts to bring bloodchief online, and then archive trap for the kill. See beyonds / preordains to search out combo pieces, mana leaks for a bit of defense. It could go off turn 5 fairly regularly but the wheels came off if I didn't see an ascension in opening hand or first preordain, or if they into the roil / O-ringed the ascension once active.
I have to say that if the deck is based on burning inquiry, which seems to be the key piece here - why not just run the liliana's caress deck and be much more successful?
Put differently - once bloodchief is online... now what? I used archive trap for instant kill, but in a r/b aggro deck what are you expecting out of your ascension? If you're making them discard it might as well be a caress really. And if you're going after their permanents - how? What are they playing and how are you blowing it up?
I ask this for those who have played it... I get that t2 gob guide/ascension followed by t3 staggershock = active BA turn 4... but so what? How are you benefiting from it now?
Using the lifegain to fuel sign in blood and tutelage?
I'm not a fan of the jinxed idol here... it belongs in the bazaar trader build.
Quote from matthewtt-4 Tome Scour
+4 Burning Inquiry
Tome Scour isn't so good.
-2 Burst Lightning
Bloodghast is good with 22+ land helps with aggro. Kraken Hatchling is almost useless. If you just want to block, its better to have
-4 Kraken Hatchling
+4 Halimar Excavator
Excavator atleast helps mill them to activate Bloodchief Ascension, even Hedron Crab might be better towards your cause.
