So I've been looking for a tube amp for a while, and I came across a Rivera R55, and a Fender Hotrod Deluxe, both of which I can get at a decent price. Which would you recommend?

I've played anything from Megadeth to 90's Rock, but lately I've been wanting to move towards the way John Frusciante plays.

the hotrod.
Belief is a beautiful armour but makes for the heaviest sword.

I have a hot rod blues junior and a deville. I absolutely love my blues junior to death and the deville is too loud for me most of the time. I WISH I would have gotten the deluxe though. They're damn fine amps and very versatile. In fact I can fake a pretty good metal tone with my jazzmaster through them.
