Exiled_soul I believe I've actually read through that primer already, thank you! I certainly remember seeing a similar decklist, anyway, with the Eternal Scourges and Pia and Kiran Nalaars as the latest additions. I was hoping to fill in the gaps between then and now, though.

Oloro_Magic Thanks for your reply! This was closer to what I was aiming for. I've gotten a couple of the new cards from the list you provided, including an Astrolabe (though I misread the Chandra, Awakened Infernos in the sideboard as additional copies of Chandra, Acolyte of Flame).

How crucial are the Scrying Sheets to the deck, in your opinion? I understand their purpose in the deck, but have been kind of underwhelmed by them personally. Since they're a little pricey anyway, I currently plan on using the Valakut, the Molten Pinnacles I already own in their stead. Have you thoughts on how that would play out?

I already had a Ratchet Bomb in the box with the deck so I'll stick with that for the moment. What are the typical targets for Bomb/ Blast Zone? I don't know the sweet spot for the counters at all.

I still haven't gotten to the shop for a game, so I'm not sure what the meta is like. When I do, though, I'll definitely hit you up for sideboard advice!

Nice deck and great name! :-) What about Extract - you may use it to find an opponent's wincon and exile it, or to find and exile Eternal Scourge?

First off welcome back to modern, it's been a while I see and yeah... things haven't been too kind to Skred Red, first off I will say that the current lists are likely temur now, here is an example: MIDRANGE

That's just to give you an idea of where snow as an archetype has gone nowadays but let's talk about classic skred red. Basically you want to get yourself 4 Arcum's Astrolabe right away, the card quite frankly is broken, it replaces itself and ups your skred snow count right away. Here is a list from MTUgin that I am a fan of:

MTUgin's Deck


2 Frostwalk Bastion

2 Scrying Sheets

18 Snow-Covered Mountain


2 Eternal Scourge

2 Seasoned Pyromancer

1 Hazoret the Fervent

2 Stormbreath Dragon


1 Chandra, Acolyte of Flame

2 Chandra, Torch of Defiance

2 Koth of the Hammer


4 Lightning Bolt

4 Skred

3 Anger of the Gods


3 Relic of Progenitus

4 Arcum's Astrolabe

4 Mind Stone

1 Ratchet Bomb


3 Blood Moon


2 Goblin Rabblemaster

3 Simian Spirit Guide

2 Chandra, Awakened Inferno

2 Shattering Spree

2 Pillage

2 Pithing Needle

2 Dragon's Claw

That list can use a lot of work, for example I think Blast Zone is likely just better than the ratchet bomb, and another little Chandra could be played, but it should give you something to work from. Skred right now can be a little weird, Primeval Titan decks are very good right now meaning being the Blood Moon deck isn't a bad place to be, but you really do lack any meaningful sideboard cards. I'd probably cut the SSG's for Damping Sphere which is also good against titan and storm. If your meta turns out to be a ton of titan you should be decently positioned otherwise one of skred's biggest problems in this day and age is what is becoming the end all and be all of the modern format and that is game actions per turn. Skred has a very low count on this and thus is inherently behind decks like amulet or urza which are doing many things a turn. Now, again Blood Moon can just win games but it is a concern. The temur build solves this problem some but is a very different deck.

As for having to buy new cards, its a reality all us modern players have had to face, 2019 produced a LOT of staple cards: Wrenn and Six, Teferi, Time Raveler, Urza, Lord High Artificer, Arcum's Astrolabe, and Oko, Thief of Crowns to name a few. In a way Skred has a lot less than most decks so there is that to look forward to I guess. My advice to you though is just cast moon, you can update as you go, moon will steal you games while you do. If I were you I would prioritise the Chandra's and Seasoned Pyromancer both seem good here. Let me know what your meta looks like I'd be happy to help you out with a sideboard!

Good draws!

Icbrgr on Has Using the Graveyard as ...

I certainly agree that graveyard oriented strategies are very common and powerful.... but I think as long as there are multiple different decks that utilize the graveyard as a resource... and there are plenty of viable and accessible forms of graveyard hate for other decks....As long as WOTC reframes from printing powerful "cast from exile" spells and stick with janky stuff like Misthollow Griffin/Eternal Scourge I think the graveyard is safe.

Other considerations: Dimensional Infiltrator (potentially dodges removal), Blight Herder , Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver (I would say over Davriel), Relic of Progenitus (neat "cantrip" for this deck), Eternal Scourge . Depending on how you swing it, may allow you to work in Unclaimed Territory , Sea Gate Wreckage , or other fun stuff.

Spinal_Remains: I imagine the line is to Dread Return targeting Eternal Witness . That lets you return Walking Ballista to your hand and cast it for a million.

Snax_n_staX: Would you be able to add a section/note on Tainted Pact ? It fits so well into both combo routes, and I want to make sure I'm not missing anything. It lets you find Food Chain while possibly exiling Eternal Scourge , is basically an A+B combo with Laboratory Maniac , and gives you a Flash Hulk pile of LabMan + Spellseeker if you want to avoid graveyard hate. Is there anything else?

Skred Red has been pretty fun because it’s a red deck that doesn’t play like a red deck, and nobody ever knows how to play against it. Plus, there’s just tons of sneaky good synergy. Exiling Eternal Scourge to Chandra, Torch of Defiance ’s +1 to get the 2 damage and then casting it, using Koth of the Hammer ’s +1 as a ramp spell, tapping out for Mind Stone turn 2 and then using Dismember when your opponent lets his guard down and slams his best dude...I could just go on and on!

(Also, the new Chandra, Acolyte of Flame is stupid good in Skred Red as a 1-of and you should play it if you play Skred.)
