If you find Goblin Lore useful you might also enjoy running Control of the Court.

I love a good mono-red BEATS deck! How does Urza's Rage sound? Chandra, Pyromaster is a cheap planeswalker than can copy a devastating damage spell. Dual Casting for more copying. If you want to have fun and gamble, Fiery Gambit can attract a crowd to your table to watch (Imagine copying it!). Braid of Fire Ain't cheap, but it'll supply you with mana. Wild Ricochet is almost an auto-include for me (saved me multiple times). run Brand if card stealing is heavy in your meta.

Card Draw: Unfortunately, Red mana doesn't have great access to card draw without discard effects; Avaricious Dragon, Browbeat can net a few cards, Burning Inquiry, Goblin Lore, Control of the Court, Mindmoil does a dope job of letting you dig through your library. ALOT of wheel effects.

BUT Geth's Grimoire Makes amazing use of these wheel effects!!

You might be interested in Otherworld Atlas. Yes it gives everybody cards, but hardly anyone can complain or target the guy giving everyone cards. Arcane Spyglass makes use of unneeded mana. Farsight Mask, Font of Mythos, Illuminated Folio, Staff of Nin, Well of Knowledge,

Sorry for the gross wall of text, hope this helps!!

Sword of Chaos and Corrosion

Equipped Creature gets +2/+2 and has protection from red and green

When Equipped Creature deals combat damage to a player, draw two then discard one at random and you may destroy an artifact or enchantment that player controls.


the red based on the early red cards like Goblin Lore, Control of the Court and Burning Inquiry scales to fit the multiple use nature of the swords.

the green is based on the efficient artifact/enchantment destruction that green is known for Naturalize etc.

So, I have a feldon list, it could use a bit of touching up and all but I'd be willing to do it.

I know we are all about optimization but I firmly believe things like Control of the Court and Goblin Lore are amazing in Feldon.

Before I bother tuning my list for representation here I guess I need to know if people agree on that front or if I'm gonna get laughed out the door for suggesting it.

Thoughts all?
