I only have one Grahtwood Ambusher and no Relentless Raider, so I went with a Sharpshooter Scout and a Fiery Imp instead. Been having moderate success in casual games, but struggling really hard against decks loaded with burst damage like this Crusader deck. How do you go about handling such opponents?

Grahtwood Ambusher is indeed one of the weaker cards in the list. Good thinking on the Scouts, Fiery Imp doesn't really fit the gameplan though, so a 3rd Scout would probably be a better fit for synergy.

With regards to burst-heavy decks, you'll need to predict their burst turns (especially now that you know their entire list) and play around them by blocking incoming sources of damage via your slew of Guard creatures. The Shadow Lane isn't as important in that matchup either. Farm their aggression - bait them into breaking Runes right before you can flip the board, block them from making efficient face damage (e.g. 1hp before Runebreak) and never hit their face until you have lethal from hand (through their Prophecies) or a total command of the board and your life total. Also, get lucky with Prophecies :)
It's really a shame that decks as creative as this are nothing compared to Ramp Scout and other cancer decks. This meta sucks.

Hey now, it may be sub-par against Ramp Scout but this thing eats Prophecy Battlemages, Mages, and Archers for breakfast.

My comment wasn't meant to diss your deck, I used it and loved it. In fact, loving it is why I commented how much of a shame it is that Ramp Scout is defining the meta. It's making for a very unhealthy game balance. Even decks that are designed to counter Ramp Scout don't really do well against Ramp Scout. The only thing that consistently beats Ramp Scout is Ramp Scout!
Nice deck and guide, takes some skill to read your opponent and act acordingly
