I am going to run red again but I ordered some more cards some of which are black!

Here are the cards I have:

Lightning Bolt
Lava Spike
Rift Bolt
Shard Volley
Spark Elemental
Faithless Looting
Magma Jet
Keldon Marauders
Hellspark Elemental
Flame Javelin
Flames of the Blood Hand
Brimstone Volley
Smash to Smithereens
Searing Blaze
Guerrilla Tactics
1 Grim Lavamancer (maybe more if I can borrow some)
4 Goblin Guides (maybe if I can borrow them)

Bump in the night
Dash Hopes
Geth's Verdict

Goblin Outlander
I thought I ordered Rain of Gore but apparently not...

Shrine of Burning Rage
Veinfire Borderpost

Dragonskull summit
1 Blackcleave Cliffs

Blightning is pretty awesome. I would stick to damage cards rather than cards like Duress, Blackmail, or Geth's Verdict. Faithless Looting would have a little synergy with unearth, but overall I think it would slow down your deck too much. Put at least 8-10 one mana cards in your deck. Anathemancer is a nice sideboard card (maybe mainboard if you know what decks your opponents are going to be using).

Do you think I could play a veinfire borderpost or 2 and a swamp along with the dragonskull summits so that I can add in just the bump in the nights?

This is the deck I went with:

// Lands
21 [M11] Mountain (1)

// Creatures
4 [PLC] Keldon Marauders
4 [CFX] Hellspark Elemental

// Spells
4 [TSP] Rift Bolt
4 [M11] Lightning Bolt
4 [CHK] Lava Spike
4 [BOK] Flames of the Blood Hand
4 [M12] Incinerate
3 [SHM] Flame Javelin
4 [FD] Magma Jet
4 [ROE] Staggershock

// Sideboard
SB: 3 [SHM] Smash to Smithereens
SB: 3 [10E] Cryoclasm
SB: 3 [9E] Guerrilla Tactics
SB: 2 [WWK] Searing Blaze
SB: 4 [M11] Pyroclasm

There were 10 people so we played 3 swiss rounds then cut to top 4.

Match 1

I played an ally deck, and game 3 I drew 8 lands AND my opponent drew ALL his protection spells to protect against my 2 pyroclasms...

Match 2

Another ally deck. I won in 3

Match 3

A landfall deck that combo'd with meloku the clouded mirror. Won in 2.

Overall, I found myself sideboarding in the pyroclasms and searing blazes (and cryoclasms for the ally decks). I think I underestimated the utility of searing blaze in killing a vital creature while at the same time doing damage. Next time, I may run 3 of them maindeck.

Also, I drew a bajillion lands my first few games so I sideboarded 1 out each 2nd/3rd game... I didn't think 21 was that many...

Is 19-20 lands standard for burn decks?

I was 4th after 3 rounds, so I made T4, and we split the packs.
