Harsh Scrutiny would be solid to include. If you have removal issues against aggro, Essence Extraction and Essence Scatter are both solid.

pistachio28 Also Essence Extraction being double black that early in game can be problematic and was when tested in the deck about a month ago. I prefer not having double black in the mix till late game IE Marionette Master and Torment of Hailfire Also in having removal I prefer straight destroy. Not dealing damage. The 3 life gain is nice but almost rarely needed.

you might wanna mainboard some removal. Essence Extraction is great with the whole stall thing going on, and Fatal Pushis fatal push

LevahnTaupe If you are having issues with either version of mono-red, you might want to add Vraska's Contempt and Essence Extraction to your sideboard. Contempt deals with Hazoret and Chandra ToD. Extraction helps deal with Sand Strangler and more importantly with Ferocidon. As a bonus, they both also give you a bit of lifegain to help stabilize.

Walk the Plank is another possible option, but I don't think it is quite as good against mono-red. The only target you really want it for is glorybringer. Unfortunately, WtP is sorcery speed and Glorybringer usually demands an instant speed answer.

Creatures... i dont like glorybound here simply because he needs to exert to be lifelink. -3 Glory-Bound Initiate +1 Crested Sunmare ,Gifted Aetherborn ,Sunscourge Champion. Move kambal to sideboard against control.

Lands... two colors doesnt need much fixing and you have a lower curve. Try -1 of each basic.

With the move of kambal and dropping the two lands, i would +4 Costly Plunder

Spells... i would drop sheltering light for Essence Extraction

Drop bishops soldier for a draw spell like Costly Plunder and Live Fast. Agro decks gas out easily without consistent draw. Move kambal to the side. -1 fatal push -1 walk the plank -2 authority(to side) +4 Essence Extraction. With the two spots from kabal i would add 2 God-Pharaoh's Gift for mid/late game refresh, but you could also add Sacred Cat

Also consider Trespasser's Curse

Yeah, I know they are expensive, I just felt the need to mention.I mentioned Essence Extraction because I use 2 in my mainboard, but I also have 4 Fatal Push and 3 Vraska's Contempt to back them up.I reference my deck so that you could maybe get an idea of how many of what kinds of cards to put into the deck. The balance of spells in my deck work for me, so I merely suggest. My decklist for standard
