Pia and Kiran Nalaar Discussion

I agree with a possibility of Bridge, but I can see why you don't have it. Pia and Kiran Nalaar is great value. (Kills Arclight)

here are some cards to consider if you'd rather go for a mix of goblin, token and others creatures

Pensando em melhorar o deck sem gastar muito, eu faria o seguinte: Tirar: Bosh, Iron Golem

Chandra's Phoenix just seems bad. its a hasty 2/2 for three with a super low ceiling. Pia and Kiran Nalaar is less than a $1 a copy and protects koth a lot better. Also with the lack of blood moons in the list it seems like it would be better to plash a color instead of playing mono red. plashing black could open you up to better removal like Terminate and Fatal Push. It would make koth less good but it would open you up to playing some cool black planeswalkers and creatures while still keeping the budget super low. May I also suggest playing Glorybringer as both a great threat and a Roast every time it attacks all for $1.35 a copy.

Definitely using this deck for my Alesha inspiration!
Have you considered Pia and Kiran Nalaar over Ponyback Brigade to lower the curve a bit? Also, Leonin Relic-Warder over Soltari Visionary or Duergar Hedge-Mage to pull the Fiend Hunter and Tidehollow Sculler trick on artifacts and enchantments?
I noticed in your write up you mentioned you were considering Wrath of God or Merciless Eviction. Have you considered Retribution of the Meek or Austere Command? Both of these give you a little more flexibility over what dies.

That seems like a really good compromise, my friend! Janky combos ususally don't hurt people's feelings, and the combo pieces synergize just fine with the rest of your deck even if the engine isn't assembled.
Now that you've narrowed in on tokens/aristocrats with potential combo, it's easy to select haymakers for that deck. For starters, Chief Engineer is one of my favorite cards of all time. Blinkmoth Urn, too. Welding Jar to save your best piece in the event of a Shatterstorm. Go Brittle Effigy instead of Oblivion Stone, and then use Nevinyrral's Disk as a mass removal.
And then I think you need more token production -- Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Whirler Rogue, Thopter Spy Network, Hangarback Walker, Thopter Foundry, Thopter Assembly, stuff with Improvise and Affinity abilities, the new Saheeli Rai (and the old one I guess!). Hope this helps(: I'd cut down on the flicker synergies since artifact sacrifice + recursion + cost reduction lets you use similar effects, but all your pieces get to be artifacts. But that's just my advice to save some room in this list.
Raff is SO GOOD in this deck, like a 50 cent Vedalken Orrery. Play him. Always (:

This is a pretty standard build. If your looking for suggestions on alternative builds I’ve got some, but they deviate from normal skred so I’m fine if you ignore this completely.
1: this is a blood moon deck. Although most skred decks only run 3 I recommend 4 bc they are your main way to lock down the opponent
2: another T3 lock card is Ensnaring Bridge, and there have been multiple builds that eliminate the board pressure completely and go all in T3 lock with both e bridge and blood moon. Not sure if that’s what your going for but it’s a fun build
3: Simian Spirit Guide is a great way to cheat out moon or bridge T2. Even if your not playing bridge there are still some skred decks that run guide to get the T2 moon
4: for whatever reason Pia and Kiran Nalaar are played a lot in skred, so that might be decent
5: The one skred build that won a competitive modern gp is actually a non standard build. It involves running 4 Relic of Progenitus along with 4 Eternal Scourge as a weird synergy to turn the scourges into squee. Again, I’m not sure if this is what your going for but it’s a build
Any skred deck deserves +1 so I guess +1
