There was a serious analysis of the deck on r/spikes a while back.

The author went really deep, but IIRC the key points were: 1x Zombie Infestation is optimal, and Contested War Zone is helpful.

Good luck (and skill) with the deck!

Ruins requires you to have 5 lands in play. If you have 5 lands in play as a mono-red deck, you have probably lost the game already. The only monored decks, burn or goblins, have such strict colored requirements that playing Sunscorched Desert is not a posibility and the 1 damage is such marginal upside that it is not worth the downside.

For example, in goblins deck, Contested War Zone would be a much better Sunscorched Desert , but it is not played because of colorless production.

Glad you found a home for a card you enjoy!

Currently, you have two copies of Oblivion Ring in your deck, but you can replace it with a card like Grafdigger's Cage .

You might also enjoy playing the land Contested War Zone , although be careful when it's one of only two or three lands in your opening hand!

Happy brewing!

ROUROU I've thought about Mirrorweave before. It can at least save me from a lethal swing by turning everything into a land. I've also read about Contested War Zone but I don't know if I want to add it. Do you have any suggestions on combos for Mirrorweave ?

If you are running Tempered Steel I firmly believe it should be in a mono white build.

I also feel that If you are using Tempered Steel it should be as a replacement for Master of Etherium. Running both pushes your avgcmc too high.

Even for a budget list you should look into getting Blinkmoth Nexus it will help you push through sweepers.

Cranial Plating should always be a 4-of.

Springleaf Drum should be a 4-of.

A single Contested War Zone is a great budget option for adding a little extra power.

I'll link my deck to give you another idea of a budget list: Budget Affinity
