In Modern, I'm maining Manifest Dredge and my brother is playing a Big Red/Skred Red deck that mainboards Blood Moon. My deck has very few basics, so if he lands it usually I'm stuck Faithless Looting desperately while his Stormbreath Dragons eat my face. What I'm wondering is if there is a card in Red that can deal with BMoon. I have access to & in my deck, but the amount of basics is seriously low, and for the deck to work it pretty much has to stay that way.
Is there something more effective than just hoping I draw into a Swamp and a Forest so I can Abrupt Decay?
Currently I just fetch basics out when I can and try and pick his hand apart early, but it's really oppressive and I don't wanna devote too much sideboard space to it.
Absolutely put Faithless Looting in this deck. I have a similar (albeit less good) Madness-based deck, and Faithless Looting i an all-star in both. Beyond that, I would recommend a few more G sources, if only to get the Lotleth Trolls online with greater consistency. Lotleth Troll can handily carry a deck by itself, and 4 is frankly not enough. Happy deck buikding.
Yah the lands can be expensive if you don't have Mana Confluence already.
You can still combo off as early as turn one.
Granted, that's an absolute nut draw. But, more often than not, you can go for the turn two. The other thing to consider is you don't just lose to a Tormod's Crypt or other graveyard hate post-sideboard. That's because you just play another draw spell and get the engine going again.
Lion's Eye Diamond is what you normally play in Dredge lol. It's a much more consistent deck than Manaless Dredge, plus you get more hate cards to sideboard with.
Here is an example of a normal Dredge deck with Lion's Eye Diamond. Notice how it plays Breakthrough, Careful Study, and Faithless Looting, which allows it to dig deeper than Manaless Dredge. You can dump dredge enablers into the yard, while simultaneously getting dredge triggers.
Don't go to crazy with this deck imho Mindcrank.
Your Lion's Eye Diamond dredge decks are much much better. They have access to actual mana, which means stronger sideboard games. Your best match in manaless which is game 1, leads to the opponent bringing in hate obviously, in addition to letting manaless go first. It is a double whammy where manaless gets owned. Manaless supposedly has better 1 games but even worse games 2 and 3 compared to LED dredge. Though LED dredge can potentially be even infinitely more explosive in every game. This is due to synergy with LED and Faithless Looting + others. There is also the fact that LED dredge doesn't just forfeit to yard hate, it can also win with no yard.
I've found Hooting Mandrills to be top notch in Dredgevine decks. 4/4 at 6 CMC makes it quite resilient to remove, and you always have some things you don't need in your graveyard. It's a solid two-of. (It was a 2-of in a Dredgevine deck that top-8'd a Premier).
