I want to run the blightning deck wins build for FNM and was wondering if I could get more side ideas.

//Lands
4 Lavaclaw Reaches
4 Dragonskull Summit
4 Arid Mesa
4 Scalding Tarn
7 Mountain
1 Swamp

//Creatures
4 Plated Geopede
4 Goblin Guide
4 Hell's Thunder
4 Kargan Dragonlord
1 Hellspark Elemental

//Spells
4 Blightning
4 Lightning Bolt
4 Burst Lightning
3 Staggershock
4 Searing Blaze

//Sideboard
3 Hellspark Elemental
2 Doom Blade
4 Deathmark
2 Quenchable Fire
4 Goblin Outlander

2 decks in my metagame that weren't mentioned are vamps and white weenie. Here are my ideas on how to side against them.

WW:
-4 Kargan Dragonlord -1 Hellspark -4 Burst Lightning -1 Geopede +4 deathmark +2 doomblade +4 Goblin Outlander

Vamps:
-4 Kargan Dragonlord -1 Geopede +3 Hellspark +2 Quenchable Fire

Do you guys think I'm on the right track, or should I tweak this? Thanks for your help!

Yeah, my gameplan for vamps was to side in the unearth guys to give them less targets.

And for white weenie I wanted to side in all the creature kill and 4 goblins. I wasnt sure what to cut in the process.

I really don't like Hellspark Elemental right now, Wall of Omens just laughs at it, and it's even worse if they board in Wall of Denials too. I'd cut the one in the main for the 4th Staggershock. I'd play around with Kiln Fiend over Hell's Thunder.... Fiend is good, or at least he has been in testing. As for a sideboard, if you're not going to run Hellsparks (which I REALLY don't think you should... trying to emphasize that), a good board would be something like this:

4 Goblin Ruinblaster
3 Deathmark
3 Doom Blade
3 Manabarbs
2 Thought Hemorrhage

This is a very well-rounded sideboard that allows you to bring in cards against nearly every matchup you can face. My friend finished 10th out of 173 at our National Qualifier with this sideboard and your maindeck minus the Hellspark & Hell's Thunder, and plus the Kiln Fiends and 4th Staggershock, and he played this sideboard. He went 6-2 and played 6 different decks out of 8 rounds, and he said he wouldn't have changed a single card. Hope that helps.

Yeah, I have tested with kiln fiend a little bit. I found him a lot slower since he doesn't have haste. I'll give it another look. Thanks a lot for the help.
