Does it really work with all those taplands?

Can't you change the manabase to something 4 Savage Lands, 3 Vivid Crag and filters and do everything a turn earlier by cutting Cryptic and Cruel Ultimatum? Does that make you a bad aggro deck?

I love Briarhorn ...

Not running blue is a good idea till you play the mirror and lose to cruel ultimatum/cryptic alpha strikes. Also, Finks is really good in this deck, and jund charm >>> pyroclasm.
what role does briarhorn serve - doesn't cascade from bloodraid, none of your creatures have trample etc

not having 4 anathemancers is also wrong - too many free wins from it and also in the current metagame only mono red or mono white kithkin that its crap against

lastly pyrocalm over volcanic fallout???

Apart from that Chapin rules.
steve is shit and doesnt understand why briahorn is a good 1 of.
Lack of 4 mancers is a nod to people playing around them.
lots of decks dont even get hurt by it, and its too slow against cascade swans...

you should be asking, why not the third jund charm, not why not a singleton fallout :S

not cascading from bloodbraid doesnt matter :D

I played this deck a little tonight against Mono W Kithkin.

I am really confused about what it is trying to do. What is the actual plan against an aggro deck? Make a Boggart Ram-Gang as a blocker?

Simpleton of London.
Make better guys? Putrid leech beats down on whatever they make. Your supposed to win my jund charming at opportune moments, or just randomly going cryptic pwn you..
