if the removal suite is working for you in here don't change it. i only switched to Ensnaring Bridge in my deck because i just couldn't keep up with all the creatures being played. if i was able to focus on just getting the opponent's hand empty and had a bridge in place, i was good. any damage taken was much more manageable. the card is a little spendy but man it was worth the investment. sorry to blow up your feed.

Chasmolinker i debated for the last year on getting Liliana of the Veil and Ensnaring Bridge. after play testing with both for the last couple months it was just time to stop messing around and get them. spot removal was not doing enough for me but still have the 4 of Fatal Push which is fine and holding discard spells late game with nothing to take from my opponent was so frustrating. i see now why so many people were saying from the jump to just slowly invest and get both these cards. the lock is real. thank you, it's good to hear from you.

I was seriously debating whether or not I wanted to pickup a playset of Ensnaring Bridge and rebuild my 8 Rack Deck. Awesome deck.

Damnation, while it is a nice card, is almost never helpful. I can usually get to Ensnaring Bridge with no cards in time to render it, for all intents and purposes, useless. And Mesmeric Orb sort of has the same win more quality. This deck is only a mill deck in that it kills your opponents by having them draw to death, but getting cards into graveyards is only really my goal if they deal me damage or destroy my artifacts or something. Pithing Needle basically takes out any usage I have of Torpor Orb and Orb of Dreams hurts me too much. Winter Orb isn't modern legal.

Profane Memento sucks do not use. I run a similar deck and you don't end up gaining a lot of life. It is better in your sideboard. Run Ensnaring Bridge instead. Great deck though.

While I've always had issues building mono-white (due to the lack of effective draw), this deck looks good!

However, I must ask - how do you deal with decks that simply...ignore your life total? Particularly, voltron decks that win through commander damage, or infinite combo decks? I might run a stax package to deal with those if they show up in your meta - probably some combination of Rule of Law, Damping Sphere, Eidolon of Rhetoric, and Ensnaring Bridge?

@Mokan Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs was the original commander of the deck!

It was originally conceived as a sort of pillowfort-then-explode deck with cards like Forcefield and Ensnaring Bridge, but I found in my playgroup that the Earthquakes often took care of my defence for me, provided I wasn't focused too hard by anyone.

A better version of the deck might use more of those defensive cards. I've found Glacial Crevasses to very useful in the past, especially with Crucible of Worlds, and might end up putting it back in.

Thanks for all your great suggestions!

Oh, I didn't read the description til the end, sorry. Now I feel like an idiot. In return, if you struggle with pinpoint threat removal, Duplicant seems like the best option in mono red. Stigma Lasher might be a consideration if you can pull it off (you can discard it anyway in the late game). Crawlspace could aid you to protect yourself if you get focused. I don't know how the deck plays out, but Ensnaring Bridge might also work if you go hellbent a lot. I don't think Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs works, and The Immortal Sun seems a bit slow for draw, but you can consider them.

Anywho, great build, and happy brewing!
