    Here's the decklist i cooked up: (May T2)

    Discard:
    4 Duress
    4 Ravenous Rats
    4 Persecute(this can be so good it's unreal)

    The Lock + Card Drawing:
    4 Ensaring Bridge
    4 Grafted Skullcap

    The Kill:
    4 Crypt Rats(doubles as Board control)
    4 Soul Feast
    4 Corrupt

    Things to power this nonsense:
    4 Blood Pet
    4 Dark Ritual
    20 Swamp

    S/B:
    so far I have
    4 Unmask
    4 Chilling Apparition
    What can I add?

    I have played only some test matches (vs. random apprentice decks), so far I have won all of them.
    The card advantage which Bridge+Skullcap(s) nets you vs. creature decks is beyond belief, nullifying the kill cards of your opponent all the while drawing additional cards during your turn is amazing for just 2 cards which don't completely depend on each other.
    This deck isn't even that weak vs. most artifact removal, as it is usually discarded at the time I play Cap/Bridge.
    Not to mention that a 2nd or 3rd turn Persecute is quite common and means usually game :)

    What do you think of this deck?
    Can it be improved somehow?
    I also want to build a red Cap/Bridge burn deck, any ideas for this one?

    I was thinking of a similar idea (why is that 7th's best Black cards are all Artifacts? ;)) Mine was looking something like this:

    Discard:
    4 Duress
    4 Megrim
    3 Persecute
    4 Bog Down

    Artifacts:
    4 Ensnaring Bridge
    4 Grafted Skullcap
    4 Howling Mine

    Misc. Spells:
    4 Dark Ritual
    4 Blood Pet
    1 Yawgmoth's Agenda

    Lands:
    4 Peat Bog
    1 Rath's Edge
    19 Swamp

    The major problem so far is decking myself, which happens occasionally (about 1 of every 7 games) Man, I wish Mindwarper were still in the environment, I miss that funky guy. More to come after I tune this a bit more.

    My version goes like this:
    2 Blinding Angel
    4 Duress
    2 Marble Diamond
    2 Charcoal Diamond
    3 Fountain Watch
    1 Dust Bowl
    1 Rath's Edge
    10 Plains
    10 Swamp
    2 Vendetta
    2 Snuff Out
    2 Rout
    3 Wrath of God
    4 Dark Ritual
    4 Dark Suspicions
    4 Grafted Skullcap
    4 Ensnaring Bridge
  4. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Y'know, I'd think that with the creature-heavy environment, Ostracize would go over well.

    yeah, I'm sideboarding 4 Ostracizes as they're one of black's best ways to keep untargetables in check.
