    The lands are the main cost of deck, however you can run cheaper lands as long as they enter untapped.

    Hand with semi replicable draws.
    2 land at least 1 swamp and 1 Mountain. 1 land can be both works fine as well.
    1 immolating souleater
    1 death's shadow
    2 simian spirit Guide
    1 Temur battle rage

    Turn 1
    Exile both simian spirit Guide get 2 red mana
    Cast immolating souleater off 2 red mana
    Play swamp land and use immolating souleater pay 2 life tell you get to 9-8life left.
    This protects from a random burn loss also leaves death's shadow at a 4/4 or 5/5.
    Once life paid cast death's shadow using swamp.
    Turn 2
    Play land 2
    Attack with both immolating souleater and death's shadow, pay life down to 4 or 3, 3 life is ideal but not against burn, and before damage dealt cast temur battle rage on death's shadow if at 4 life death's shadow will be a 9/9 doubled and trample is 18 damage, + a 3/1 or 4/1 immolating souleater equaling 21-22 damage.
    Turn 3 never happens.

    All other cards are card advantage, and creature saving. Sideboard is what ever needs to be added. Side note is if not fighting a burn deck, you can go down to 12 life turn 1 and play a 1/1 death's shadow, and that way you can swing for a 11/11 double + a 6/1 immolating souleater so turn 28 damage.

    Is this every game going to happen, no but if you get a good card advantage 2-3 turns and you put a death's shadow in graveyard and cast postmortem lunge really throw your opponent off.
