Falkenrath Aristocrat would be a pretty solid option. 
I'd certainly run a set of Noble.

I would certainly throw the nobles as far as I can now that we got legit replacements.

Hellriders should be aristocrats propably.. And bump??

My testing so far has suggested that RDW isn't very good against the format.

It struggles with midranges heavy hitters like Thragtusk or Huntmaster or Restoration Angel; not only do they cost like 2 or 3 cards in terms of tempo with the lifegain; it also takes another two or three cards to get rid of it. It's nigh impossible to recover from that sort of a curve.

It also lost Shrine, which was a HUGE loss and I've felt it in every test game I've played so far; especially against Control decks. I've been trying Tibalt as a replacement, but it's never actually that good, especially when Esper decks are involved because they meet Turn 2 Tibalt with Turn 3 Lingering Souls and that's about that.

Am I missing something has Vexing Devil suddenly become playable with the release of RtR?

@rorixcollecter not only is he played in modern but i think this card is very good essintial its 4 damage for R thats why rakdos cackler is the one drop for this deck....your thoughts?
It's played in modern? 
The burn for 4 is good... the only bad part is when they give you a creature you don't want. You need a way to make the fact you've got a creature relevant when the body isn't.

Maybe we use Jarad to throw him late game.

I know it's no Shrine, but can Hellion Crucible help give RDW some of that late game punch it desperately requires?
