MTG: Vexing Delver Deck (Standard 2012)

What happens when you combine this nasty little creature to the standard delver deck of 2012?

You get an abomination. A very fast and aggressive deck that can also be defensive and can outsmart your opponent when the counter spells are properly used.

What Vexing Devil has in its favor is an insane potential damage to mana cost ratio. It can deal 4 damage for one mana and if the opponent would choose not to take that damage this critter can deal 4 damage every turn if unblocked. For a single red mana you get a creature with a power of 4 and 3 toughness? Talk about getting your money's worth.

Here is my build for a blue red Vexing Delver Deck for Standard of 2012:

Main Board (60):
Red (15)
2  Grim Lavamancer

Blue (3)
1 Tamiyo, the Moon Sage
2 Dissipate
Green (2)
2 Corrosive Gale
Red (9)
3 Arc Trail
4 Galvanic Blast

Deck analisys:

You won't find your spells hard to cast with this mana curve average 1.8 and you can just save your mana once you have drawn the Bonfire of the Damned.
This deck consist of 38% Blue and 27% Red with 36% Colorless cards.
