Oloro_Magic on Help needed with SkredRed build

2 days ago

Hey!

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:

https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/modern-temur-midrange-165516#paperTEMUR 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

Lands

2 Frostwalk Bastion

2 Scrying Sheets

18 Snow-Covered Mountain

Creatures

2 Eternal Scourge

2 Seasoned Pyromancer

1 Hazoret the Fervent

2 Stormbreath Dragon

Planeswalkers

1 Chandra, Acolyte of Flame

2 Chandra, Torch of Defiance

2 Koth of the Hammer

Spells

4 Lightning Bolt

4 Skred

3 Anger of the Gods

Artifacts

3 Relic of Progenitus

4 Arcum's Astrolabe

4 Mind Stone

1 Ratchet Bomb

Enchantments

3 Blood Moon

Sideboard

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!

More Handy Deck tech:

Syncopate

Beacon Bolt

Clout of the Dominus

Role Reversal

Mind Stone

Gilded Lotus

Thran Dynamo

Coalition Relic

Potential Win Conditions:

Insurrection (strong if a player has a creature deck popping off)

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur (flash him in at the end of an opponent's turn to make them discard their whole hand)

Nezahal, Primal Tide (can protect itself from removal by exiling out whenever targeted. Also draws cards when people try to remove it, or do anything else)

Boardwipe suggestions: Merciless Eviction, Play of the Game, Life's Finale, Cleansing Nova, Austere Command, Tragic Arrogance, Blasphemous Act

Land/mana ramp: Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum, Mind Stone, Commander's Sphere, Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Myriad Landscape, Wayfarer's Bauble

Card draw: Syphon Mind, Faithless Looting, Mind's Eye, Vanquisher's Banner, Skeletal Scrying

As far as Vampires, you should add more (have around 35ish), but I'm not sure which ones are essential to add. But regardless, here are some suggestions.

I’d say that the mana per spell isn’t as important as having some good sources of mana ramp. You could add Dimir Signet , Rakdos Signet , and Izzet Signet as a start and maybe get a few cheap colorless mana rocks like Mind Stone Wayfarer's Bauble , and Everflowing Chalice

Your land count will also probably want to be around 36. That is just a number I always feel more comfortable with for my decks.

I can send suggestions for what to cut later, but I’m a little busy at the moment.

Joe_Ken_ on Fat Stack Faeries

I feel like Fumigate is better than Kaya's Wrath since it dosen’t have as hard of a colored mana cost.

I also think that getting a Dimir Signet and some other low cost mana rocks like Mind Stone and Wayfarer's Bauble are good.

I would also consider adding Etchings of the Chosen and Radiant Destiny to give your creatures a boost as well as a little protection.

Joe_Ken_ on life gain orzhob

You can probably tone down on the lands and go to 36-37 for the deck. 43 is just way too high since that is half of your deck when you want it to be more around 1/3 of the deck.

Some stuff you can put in to swap for those lands are Mind Stone , Wayfarer's Bauble , Worn Powerstone , and Hedron Archive for ramp.

Some other good cards would be Ajani, Strength of the Pride although he is a little pricy so some budget options could be Ajani's Pridemate and Regal Bloodlord

Joe_Ken_ on Deja Vu

You can probably lower the amount of lands to 36 or 37, probably 36 since most of your deck is pretty low mana cost wise. Then you can add in some cards like Mind Stone , Hedron Archive , and maybe Primal Amulet  Flip to give your spells some added bonus.

Profet93 on Sidisi Trinket Storm

The reason why those decks have even more lands is because it's cheap and you will ensure you can cast your commander, just at a slower pace because of the lack of rocks. You can do ad nas, sickening dreams, lands and glacial chasm should you wish as I've seen many simplified builds do so, but adding more ramp and interaction is never a bad thing.

Imp's mischief is a personal pet card of mine for all the reasons I mentioned above. Personally, it helps protect your commander/combo should you be facing blue which, aside from removal in general, is your biggest weakness IMO. I personally don't play cEDH sidisi for the glass cannon reason, it is fast, but fragile. I can send you my Sidisi list if you like, but it isn't ad nas combo at all so I'm not sure how much it would help you. Given other fast cEDH decks, you have a slow start sometimes (notably due to high land count), you need to be able to interact. Slaughter pact is 0 so it works well with adnas and can help ensure you can interact without mana.

For more interaction and ramp, based on EDH rec alone, I have found the following...

Snuff Out - Free interaction is powerful

Dismember - Another option

Force of Despair - See above

Everflowing Chalice - Ramp at any stage and works well with adnas

Arcane Signet

Mind Stone - Ramp and card draw

Jet Medallion

Your choices of cards should be based on your meta, your availability and personal preference. Just remember, blue is your biggest enemy as they can interact on the stack and stop ad nas. Hell, even tutoring for boseju/cavern and THEN ad nas sets you behind as you need to set up/play around blue with other people are getting stax/control pieces or rushing to their combo.
