The Art of Legacy Burn by Cody L Locy
Explosive games, fast damage, and not a care in the world, this is Red Burn. A deck archetype that has never and will never seemed to burn out from the competition, Wizards willing.

Aggro Building for Beginners by Trikon
For an aggro deck attack power is the most important thing on a creature. You are trying to bring your opponents life to zero fast so having a higher attack is more important. Evasion is really good, but usually when it comes to sacrificing attack for evasion, itís just not worth it. This is why Savannah Lions is better than suntail hawk in an aggro deck most of the time.

Combo of the Day
Ashnod's Altar Buy + Skullclamp Buy + Zombie Infestation Buy
{1} Discard two cards to put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token into play.
{2} Pay {1} to equip the token with Skullclamp Buy.
{3} Sacrifice the token for a mana gain of {2} and draw two cards.
{4} Repeat steps {1}-{4}.

Nets {1} mana gain per cycle.

Fireball Buy or Library of Leng Buy can help enhance this combo.

I would like to point out this combo filters your hand, allowing you to get what you need (ex. fireball and counterspells... etc).
