Gut Shot Discussion

This appears to be a re-upload of an old deck so I will leave the same comment I did last time. First of all a couple of Gut Shot is great for finishing off 1 health opponents. Next you might want to make yourself hexproff or at leased something that will keep somebody from bolting you when you are at low heath. The first things that come to mind are Leyline of Sanctity and Witchbane Orb. Finally Phyrexian Unlife is a great way to stay "alive".

Ok... erhm... stating the obvious: If you need to fill your graveyard for fast delve creatures, you should play fetchlands. You should probably also play Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek over Faithless Looting. Most jund decks care a lot about card-advantage, and Faithless Looting is -1 card on turn 1. Besides that, there are rather few plays as strong in modern, as picking through your opponents hand on turn 1 and removing the best card they have. It's a lot better than trying to do it in turn 4.

Average casting cost is somewhat high for modern. Both Slaughter Games and Harmonize could be exchanged for something else, and cheaper.

I know, I know, these are boring cards that everyone plays, but have you considered Grim Flayer and Lightning Bolt? It is a bit.... unusual... to see a deck with 4 Gut Shot and no Lightning Bolts.

Thanks for pointing out that they added Gitaxian Probe to the banlist, Snivy__; I've followed your suggested to replace it with Gut Shot. Takes away a cantrip for some damage/burn, which is a fair trade and leaves the deck relatively untouched.

Unlife, I take your point. Remember though that it only takes 2 wins to take home a best of 3 ;) Idea is to hit 'em when they don't expect it, and sideboard in the protection to do it again. That said, the sideboard is far from perfect. Any suggestions?

I like Crimson Wisps; essentially an Expedite with some added color ;) Thing is the combo needs spells that are either free or give a strength/toughness boost. This card doesn't meet that bar. Same with Blistercoil Weird, although I may consider it for my Blue/Red prowess control deck!

Gitaxian Probe is not modern legal. Still great deck! Maybe put Gut Shot in the main in replace?

Gut Shot is a must have, and maybe add a Leyline of Sanctity to prevent somebody bolting you when you are at 1 life.

It seems the main differences are the sideboard

+1, nice build. This is clearly very refined already, but I do have two minor suggestion. I think a 3/3 split of Island/Flooded Strand would be more optimized than your current land setup. 5 basics seems unnecessary even given the Blood Moon sideboard tech. Secondly, although Gut Shot is a nice surprise for combat tech, I would prefer the value of either a third Serum Visions for additional organization, or a Spell Snare to add to your countermagic suite. Cool deck though. Hope it works out well for you.

Make a mono red deck, and have only stuff that cost one or two mana and deals damage like Shock, Lightning Bolt, Gut Shot, Burst Lightning, Chain Lightning, Firebolt, Lava Spike, Pillar of Flame, Wild Slash, and then add stuff like Rite of Flame, and Figure of Destiny. This deck is able to beat even the best mtg players with their own personal decks.
