Forget playing mid-range, this deck has been tearing apart most of the mono-red/rakdos decks I come across. It just has way too much burn and draw!
Unfortunately I haven't really crossed many control decks so far, but I bet it can out-draw them.
I know what your thinking, siphoner just dies to chainwhiler. Yes she does, but then so do the couriers and firebrands, so throw out some bait and watch them use chainwhirler too early then draw a ton of burn to keep the board clear or go for 10+ damage lethal swings when they least expect it!

I know the mana is still off (20 land is enough, believe me) and I need some canyon sloughs and 4 hubs is probably too many.

Land (20)
4 Dragonskull Summit
4 Aether Hub
10 Mountain
2 Cinder Barrens

Creatures (25)
4 Bomat Courier
4 Fanatical Firebrand
4 Ghitu Lavarunner
4 Soul-Scar Mage
4 Glint-Sleeve Siphoner
4 Scrapheap Scrounger
1 Ruin Raider

Burn (12)
4 Shock
4 Lightning Strike
4 Wizard's Lightning

Draw (3)
2 The Flame of Keld
1 Arguel's Blood Fast

Only thing bothering me is why the hell I always draw 2 land off of flame of keld? Why don't I ever get a juicy hand-full of burn?
Ruin Rader could become a 2-of, but I've only got 1 atm.

This is so much better than net-decking.
Enjoy!

Ran into that doublecast deck today, was scary, got me to 1 and had a topdeck for the win before big dumb green stuff killed it. I was not expecting double cast bite at all :D

Matchmaking seems weird - I que as green stompy and I get paired vs unfortunate bronze aggro players, I que as U/B mid and I get gold/diamond control opponents. Been a very consistent pattern - been fortunate to win the U/B games but I'm unfavoured there, might have to shelve that deck and just play U/W anti-control when I'm in the mood if that's how things work now.

Just made what looks like a nice burn deck based on that one loosely. Not Rakdos though I'm afraid. I forgot I didn't have the Sword Points anymore when I started spending wildcards to try this deck out. Better that way. I'm not crazy about netdecking.
