Darth_Savage on R/B Dragons

If your looking for a budget option to get your dragons on the field quicker, Generator Servant or Infernal Plunge might help.

Sideboard wise you have no graveyard interaction, so for starters Tormod's Crypt or Rakdos Charm should be there. Dragon's Claw is reasonable anti burn tech and you benefit from it anyway and Ratchet Bomb is fairly standard to deal with anything (Enchantments) that R/B struggle with.

Bchong on Muldrotha, Recycling Queen

3 days ago

I am just going to start off by saying that Muldrotha excels are enabling weird combos or recurring value plays. It also seems like you are playing a fairly cheaper deck so I won't bother with all the lands you could put in and other super expensive stuff.

One of the things you are missing are

all the 0 mana artifacts: Tormod's Crypt Lotus Petal

1cmc: Caustic Caterpillar Elephant Grass any one cmc mana dorks Nature's Claim Carrion Feeder Skullclamp Unbridled Growth Nihil Spellbomb Pithing Needle All of the one cmc tutors such as Entomb Crop Rotation

2 cmc: all the possible signets and talismans, Zulaport Cutthroat Ratchet Bomb Animate Dead

3cmc: Windfall Frantic Search and you don't have to listen to this one...for of just the fun card Oppression

4cmc: Null Brooch

Some of the super fun combos are... Dream Halls Food Chain

now what to take out and why... In general I play in a faster meta where many of your creatures aren't able to even be played before the game ends

Cut: everything that is 5 cmc and above and every planeswalker except Shriekmaw Mulldrifter Deadeye Navigator this is because these card are simply not impactful enough and there are better alternatives around...

remove every single "when creature dies everyone loses a life" except Blood Artist and my suggestion of Zulaport Cutthroat you have too many redundant affects.

and here is just some fairly "bad" cards in your deck 4 cmc or less: World Shaper Vizier of the Menagerie Solemn Simulacrum Sidisi, Brood Tyrant Hostage Taker Dreamborn Muse Baleful Strix Nevinyrral's Disk Control Magic Reliquary Tower

you might even want to consider taking out Sol Ring but i guess it helps you play muldrotha

anyways good luck to you

Chalice of the Void on one will get u good. maybe Ratchet Bomb sideboard.

Xica on Strongest Color?

2 weeks ago

APPLE01DOJ Aura hexproof is vulnerable enough to Aura Barbs if you have some sort of reach to compliment it, idk ... like Lightning Bolt which is somehow managed to end up in the same color.

Plus you can access all the relevant artifact based hate cards, those often tend to be more than enough, be it Spellskite, Ensnaring Bridge, or Ratchet Bomb - remember red is a pretty agressive color, so it can race if boggles stumbles and/or lacks lifelink.

Sargeras on Moltenheart (Skred-Dragons)

2 weeks ago

If you want the actual test cuts that I made, I cut all copies of Draconic Roar, the two Haven of the Spirit Dragons, one Skred, all copies of Thunderbreak Regent, one Ratchet Bomb.

put in two Abrades, two Roasts, one Snow-Covered Mountains, four Mind Stones, and three Glorybringers.

this was just the test that I did, I highly recommend using tappedout as a playtester to find out which combination fits right.

As for the sideboard, I cut one Shattering Spree, two Dragon's Claws, and an Anger of the Gods and played Relic of Progenitus, you don't need to play a relic if you go this route, but it's definitely the best option imo.

saturn999 on The Descent

it just depends on how we're set up. we have our singleton Death Cloud if we've locked out our opponent with bridge. if bridge isn't an option and we're able to apply pressure with our Mutavault we can do that too. another option was to move Trinisphere to the side along with Ratchet Bomb and have 4x The Rack in their place. this would put damage through considering we are also playing plenty of discard. any ideas?

clickforcookies on mono-red dragons

2 weeks ago

Some other mainboard options I would consider would be Glorybringer just so you can have a removal dragon if you need it, Stormbreath Dragon due to its pseudo evasion and that it acts as a mana sink for later, finally, I would look at Ratchet Bomb or even Skred however I understand not running Skred due to budget.

luther on Glissa, Who Won't Let You Do Anything

I feel as though Ratchet Bomb is not ever for the 3+ drops, like you said that is too slow. But I don't think using it against 1 drops is unfeasable. Over 1/3 of your castable cards are 1 drop or less, and aren't most cedh decks about in the same boat? That isn't even with adding in any of the token producers people may have. I wouldn't probably use it very reactively to any bombs, but more proactively to keep the board state under control. That being said, I totally understand if you don't use it as your deck seems pretty solid as is. +1 from me
