BoP and Day of Judgement should not share the same deckspace. Lotus Cobra could actually be good in this deck, and I'm really not one to rave about him. Otherwise, running 2 Trace of Abundance, the last Baneslayer Angel and a singleton of sorts (I really like World Queller as a singleton) I would also cut the 2 Qasali Pridemage sideboard to finish a playset of Path to Exile and Maelstrom Pulse, there isn't a lot of artifacts or enchantments running around, and whatever random ones you encounter Maelstrom Pulse will take care of.

I really don't like dragon claw, and it seem a pretty dead card against red. you side in your claws against red game 2... you win and they side in punishing fire which is really bad news for you. you see I lightning bolt baneslayer... ohh you gain a life, I'll pay a red and get my punishing flame back and play it hitting baneslayer for 2 more, oh you gained 2 life, I spent 4 mana and a lighning bolt to kill your angel.

EmoNinja, that is far too narrow to consider. I've played dragon's claw to bolster red matchups SOO many times before, and Punishing Fire is not gonna get there just beccause of Dragon's Claw.

Did i mention it's awesome, too?

Not to mention that a wall of reverence with ob nixilis should be plenty of life gain that punishing fire really isn't a problem. Claw is so I can slow the game to control speed. World queller seems like a good threat but isn't worth a MD slot. Ill have to test him out.

I like him as a singleton on paper, I should add. I've tested maybe 4-5 games where I've played him, he played his role twice, won the game once, and got me a basic land off of Path to Exile the rest. You do need more dudes/ways to win, I'm probably just not thinking of any at the moment. I am certain you want the last Baneslayer Angel main though.

If you're able to control the board well enough, perhaps Luminarch Ascension or Elspeth, Knight-Errant? Even Lilianna Vess might be worth considering, as she can just start fetching up your bombs post-stabilizing. BWG is REALLY low on finishers right now, so I'm not sure I'd agree with cutting Sign in Blood. You're really going to need to see more cards and there really just aren't any other finishers I'd want to play =\
