Thoughts on Flayer of the Hatebound as supplementary wincon? You could abuse the ETB loops.

I’ve reached an impasse and need your suggestions. Any you make will be valuable.

I’ve been...hoarding cards lately, ordering playset after play set of things to build with, and now that most of them are here I don’t know what exactly to do with them. I’m really in need of suggestions because I can’t make a decision. Below is a list of cards that I have desire to make into something(s?);

Wildfire Eternal

Thought Gorger

Mogg Fanatic

Nahiri's Wrath

Sickening Dreams

Prized Amalgam

Diregraf Captain

Whispering Madness

Psychic Corrosion and,

Flayer of the Hatebound

Obviously I have more cards than this to supplement whatever the plan ends up being and I don’t expect to fit them all together, but if you have any suggestions then shoot. I’d greatly appreciate any ideas. Apparently I’m a netherbeast who has developed the retardations and can’t build a sixty card deck anymore...

Mono red has a lot of functional budget cards kicking around, thanks to tier2 cards being printed basically every set. I had a quick glance through the list of devil cards- Impetuous Devils looks fun, Wolf of Devil's Breach and Flayer of the Hatebound/Scourge Devil are interesting cards pointing to a possible self-mill strat.

If you're playing a casual format, its important to measure your decks' power and how 'unfair' it feels to play against- noone wants to feel like their games are a coinflip. So while the 'red deck wins' go wide strategy with Bedlam Reveler, Shared Animosity and Rakdos Cackler is available, I'm gonna talk about something more fun in less competitive metas- Big red.

Big red likes setting down mana rocks to get to 4-5 mana early, using spells like Roast to clear the board. A creature base in the 3/4/5/6 slots isnt' unreasonable, so long as you can cast early spells to clear out creatures.

I'd look at a set of Roast, Slagstorm/Pyroclasm, and Pulse of the Forge. If you can just blam creatures off the board and threaten their life total on your end step, getting to the big devils isn't too tricky.

Flames of the Blood Hand is an amazing RDW sideboard card because it helps stop decks that go 'I gain 10 life, you literally can't win against me now'. Your value plan should only be worried about life in the 'Is this making them completely immune to damage' sense. If charmbreakers stick, you don't have to worry about a foe being at 30 life.

If your meta is lifegain-combo heavy, then consider sticking an Everlasting Torment- its on theme and should stick around longer.

Last, mana. Specifically, mana rocks. The beating heart of casting big spells in red. Mind Stone, Star Compass, Talisman of Impulse, Boros Signet/Rakdos Signet, etc. They are really good- either people are wasting cards on artifact removal, which doesn't massively affect your gameplan (at least, not unless its a competitive meta with Ensnaring Bridge everywhere), or you get to cast 3/4 drops early. The best even draw you a card when you no longer need them. It also can easily take the place of some of the lands you play- The rule of thumb is generally that 2 rocks is worth 1 land. This should let you more reliably cast bigger creatures. I wouldn't normally mention it because I don't like the card, but Rakdos Keyrune is on theme.

Hi Scytec, Flayer of the Hatebound is a good one, i just don't really like the mechanic of machinegunning(is this even a word?) everyone on the table, but i'll probably add Triskelion. Dark Depths ins't that good at my table, a lot of bouncers and sacrifice shit. but i recognize that 2 20/20 flying indestructible is just broken.

Out of curiosity, why arent you running Flayer of the Hatebound? On a different not, Triskelion goes infinite with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. While you don't have to activate the combo, it's nice to have a panic button when you need it. Also, Dark Depths combos very well with Vampire Hexmage if you use depths, you should also run Thespian's Stage as a redundant piece. :)

lookoutimscary on Lotleth Giant in Manaless Dredge??

Could the new Lotleth Giant be viable for legacy manaless dredge? If so, do you think I would be better off having it in the mainboard or keeping it in the side to swap out for Flayer of the Hatebound if need be? Thanks guys!

Have you considered Whisper, Blood Liturgist over Hell's Caretaker? (or as well as!!)

In some ways it demands more of you but is flexible in timing and could double up hits from Flayer of the Hatebound, Stalking Vengeance, Warstorm Surge etc.

Cool deck and page bling btw :)

Sorry for the shameless self-advertising, but I built a pretty fun (imo) and relatively cheap deck around Flayer of the Hatebound a while back: Flayer of the Hatebound Reanimator. It's better with Gravecrawler instead of Dregscape Zombie if you have them.

Another deck I can think of off the top of my head is the Zubera aristocrats deck (example: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/against-the-odds-five-color-zubera-rally-modern). The main is really budget, and it's pretty easy to budgetize the lands.
