Eidolon of the Great Revel Discussion
17 hours ago
Maaagic - Vexing Devil, Goblin Guide, and Eidolon of the Great Revel are great and awesome, but at $140 for a full play set of them, I am just trying to make an awesome deck that is basically an equal to my The Glorious Slim Line deck in speed (to destroy the opponent) and cost (to purchase the deck)
But thinking about it the Guide isn't that great unless you are running RU with counters (Void Shatter, Dissipate, Deprive, etc.) because if you run the Guide in Mono-Red and they are playing Green, well, they could have Tooth and Nail on top ready to entwine, or have Joraga Warcaller on top where they have Immaculate Magistrate out and ready with 8-9 other elves to beef up their field and prevent you from doing burn on creatures, or have Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, or many other options. I just don't like Goblin Guide in a Mono-Red because A) the cost and B) it just isn't useful unless the deck is RU with counters or playing 2-Headed Giant and teamed up with a Counter deck.

When you play Mono Red Burn you end up having a lot of filler space available to customize your deck after adding playsets of Rift Bolt, Lightning Bolt, Goblin Guide, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Monastery Swiftspear, and Lava Spike. Along with that usually you run about 1 Shard Volley because drawing multiple can be devastating, and even 2 can be stretching it (but maybe play 2 if you think you can).
Some of the better options after that are Hellspark Elemental, Keldon Marauders, Vexing Devil, Searing Blaze, Grim Lavamancer, Shrine of Burning Rage, Exquisite Firecraft (which is a very underestimated card), Ball Lightning, and Magma Jet.
For the sideboard some good options include Blood Moon, Leyline of Punishment, Smash to Smithereens, Molten Rain, Curse of the Pierced Heart, Anger of the Gods, Dragon's Claw, Tormod's Crypt, and Relic of Progenitus.
Keep in mind that what cards I have recommended you do not have in paragraphs 2-4. Also you have stated that this indeed is a burn deck (like T4 kill you kind of thing) so I am treating it like that. And if this is the case you usually want to run 18 lands, maybe more (especially if you play with fetch lands). But if you are a more controlling deck then that is another story and I can go in-depth on the more controlling archetypes of Mono Red if you want.
Also Keldon Megaliths can be good, along with many other utility lands for red.
If you have any questions on the playability of any of the cards or different popular archetypes of Mono Red besides Burn then just leave a comment and I can go in-depth on it.

Braid of Fire seems really cool to drop your beginning hand, but it seems like a pretty awful topdeck once (if) you get to that part of the game. I personally feel like Assault Strobe or Temur Battle Rage would go great with your Swiftspear/Kiln Fiend plan as giving them double strike is great. Granted, those both suffer from the same problem as Braid with being bad top decks if your board is clear, so it's your call.
Other than that, I think it may be worth putting at least the Arid Mesa mainboard and maybe putting 3x Eidolon of the Great Revel or 3 Harsh Mentor into the sideboard so that way you have less cards dedicated to your transformative sideboard and more cards for other matchups.
Dig the interesting take on burn, and thanks for the upvote!

Thanks, that was i hoped to hear. I used to run Searing Blood, but i left just one as a silver bullet exactly because it needs to destroy a creature in order to inflict damage to the opponent.
A question i must ask is what do you think about Loic Le Briand's decision of maindecking Shrine of Burning Rage instead of Eidolon of the Great Revel. I guess it was a meta call, but i am interested in every burn player's opinion.

Goblin Guide, Eidolon of the Great Revel, and Monastery Swiftspear are the three best aggressive creatures for burn. I've also found success in using Hellspark Elemental and Exquisite Firecraft. Magma Jet combos well with Thunderous Wrath. Skullcrack is pretty good, as it prevents your opponent from gaining life while dealing damage. Flames of the Blood Hand does the same thing, but more damage. Spark Elemental is also a potential budget alternative. Ball Lightning gets your bang for your buck (mana cost). And if you see more effects like Lightning Bolt then Path to Exile effects then Chandra's Phoenix if you're on a budget (or think it's a good card). Keldon Marauders can deal 5 damage for 2 mana in the right meta.
Some more sideboard tech could include Curse of the Pierced Heart for control, as it puts a constant clock on them. Also Molten Rain is great since there are decks like Titan Shift, Scapeshift, Amulet combo, and decks with man lands running around. You WILL need some graveyard hate, like Tormod's Crypt and/or Relic of Progenitus. Leyline of Punishment shuts down life gain and fog effects, along with the new card from Ixalan Rampaging Ferocidon. Anger of the Gods exiles, which can be important in a matchup like Dredge.

Use Eidolon of the Great Revel it hurts you but you'll win that race, Goblin Guide is a lot of fast damage the effect isn't necessarily bad, Searing Blaze is a strictly better Lightning Strike in your deck, Shard Volley is good you can float mana to neglect the downside, probably want fetches to make Grim Lavamancer and Searing Blaze better and filter out lands

Sword of Feast and Famine for Falkenrath Gorger.In preparation for the 1K at Geek Fortress, I need to increase the speed of this list. Sword of Feast and Famine was a meta decision in a grindy matchup, and doesn't do a whole lot to help this list.
