Also with any non-blue deck I play that has red I run Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast.

Carpet of Flowers seems really out of place. Unless your play group has an abnormal amount of mono blue players, you don't usually wanna use cards that focus on hating on a specific land or color type unless it's interchangable (such as Iona, Shield of Emeria). Instead, try for more ramp that isn't dependent on others OR haste enablers.

I'd recommend the following, but of course take them with a grain of salt since I'm not sure what all you're going for lol:

On the opposite side, I'd recommend removing/swapping the following:

  • Clan Defiance: In your colors you have access to better (and still affordable removal), plus your focus should be Mayael, ramping, and creature abilities.
  • Harmonize: It's not bad, but you don't wanna draw into your creatures.
  • Carpet of Flowers: The original reason stated above.
  • Quicksilver Amulet: Not a bad alternitve, so not a high priority, but again, focus on Mayael and this could be another creature.
  • Arlinn Kord  Flip: She just seems... out of place. If you like her, keep her by all means, just seems off. Maybe Xenagos, the Reveler instead?
  • Wild Ricochet: I like this card, but it's expensive. Reverberate or Fork will typically do what you want for less mana. If you're having a problem with blue players, try Red Elemental Blast

A friend of mine has a super charged Mayael deck (Mayael's Eldrazi Escapades) that I've been playing against for years. I have a high respect for the deck and hope you have fun with yours, budget or not.

On a different topic!

Dear friends - I need to brainstorm ways to shut down a Leovold, Emissary of Trest deck in mono-red. There are too many Leovolds in my meta, and they need to be taken down a notch by a $25 budget deck.

Assume I don't care about winning, just making the Leovold player ragequit.

Combust, Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, Null Brooch, the new Time Stop...what else am I missing?

(Tagging n0bunga and Lilbrudder for their experience playing Leovold.)

Thanks, but shouldn't Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast be sideboard tech?

I will say it's hard to run a combo deck without blue. I would say add in some cards that says your shit can't be countered or even add in some red counter spells, like Vexing Shusher, Red Elemental Blast, Burnout

Chandra Ablaze or Chandra, Flamecaller seem like they fit right at home!

Pyromancer's Goggles?

Shard Phoenix? Seems janky, but I like the premise of discard something to Hazoret, then returning it.

Let's take a look at some burn spells:

Pyrokinesis for a surprise, Increasing Vengeance, Fork & Reverberate to copy em, Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Skred if you just want to run snow mountains for reasons. Fiery Confluence is good for all modes, and maybe Collective Defiance?

Draw Spells, I'm thinking the relevant discard/draws like Cathartic Reunion, or Wild Guess.

I think Illusionist's Bracers ought to work.

Braid of Fire is a very janky way at generating boatloads of red mana to use only during your upkeep. could sink a ton into instant burn spells?

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle seems obligatory.

And for the non-budgetary purposes: Gauntlet of Might

Latulla, Keldon Overseer seems like janky fun.
