Scour from Existence Discussion

Cut these boisss
Dreamstone Hedron too high of cmc
Fellwar Stone only a two color deck with green - don't really need this
Add more early game green ramp spells; colorless mana you accrue with Kruphix should be put towards late game colorless spells like Eldrazi because that's when you'll be collecting colorless mana
Admiral's Order the discount works only on your turn (either cut or replace with a different one)
Scour from Existence if you don't have Kruphix, I can see this card just being sad to have in your hand

In my days of going up against a Cap Sisay deck, you've got to be prepared for when an Iona, Shield of Emeria drops on the board and names white. It'll ruin your day. Pack some cheap colorless removal like Duplicant , Scour from Existence and for colorless boardwipes Oblivion Stone is pretty good. If you money to spend, I high recomend an All Is Dust , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger these have cast triggers that can destroy/exile the creature/permanent that's hurting you. Like Iona or another troublesome permanent. If you want to double down you could invest in snow-covered plains and an Extraplanar Lens but these are my suggestions. I use most of these in my monogreen Omnath deck so I come prepared.

TKDbeast Thanks for the comment! This has been a fun deck to build and test. I realize that there is a lot of removal in the deck (Oblivion Stone, All Is Dust, Bontu's Last Reckoning and even the Scour from Existence) but the idea behind those is dealing with cards like Blood Moon and Damping Sphere and other cards that attack my lands.
As for Basilisk Collar, that's just a test I've been running. Not sure I like it completely. Seems like a throw in that could be used elsewhere.
I do like the The Immortal Sun a lot though. Sure, it's got a high casting cost and slows down my game, but at the same time it's got so much going for it that I feel like it's a strong card for this current built.
As for the Eldrazi Mimic, it can be extremely powerful given the rest of the creatures in the deck, but when it's not it makes great cannon fodder...lol
I've previously ran Inquisition of Kozilek and ultimately pulled it but I'm not opposed to sliding it back in. My initial idea behind this build was to combine tron/eldrazi with 8-rack type cards for hand disruption. It's just morphed into this current build...

Neat deck! I like the idea, and I always like any unique ideas using the Urza lands.
Black has amazing discard, and is tremendously effective, taking out threats before they become a problem, and decimate mulliganed hands. There's a reason nearly every Modern deck
Finally, as cute as they are, both functionally and literally, I don't see the Eldrazi Mimics being that effective. At least, no more than a variety of other choices for the slot, such as Chalice of the Void, Thorn of Amethyst, Heartless Summoning, etc.

There are a few ways to get around protection-from-white when you're running mono-white.
Protection doesn't help against mass removal, like Wrath of God.
Godsend doesn't target, so you can use its ability to exile the creature with protection.
Lastly, I'd suggest Overwhelming Splendor. It is a beautiful hate-card, and it shuts down morph.

keatonsmask: Thanks for commenting! I agree, enchantments is the biggest thing this deck has a problem with, but that is one of mono-red's biggest weaknesses in general.
I like the Hellkite, and run it in other decks, but in this deck it just affects the table too late (or not at all if it is removed before attacking). It comes out on T6 at the latest, then you wait till T7 to attack, and then that attack has to get through without being blocked or fogged. It is probably something I would suggest running in the budget version of this deck, but once something gets above 4 CMC it becomes really hard to justify in my main one. It's the same reason I don't run Hoarding Dragon, even though there are a lot of important cards I could tutor with it.
I used to run Scour from Existence and Spine of Ish Sah, which I think are the best removal options red has that can hit enchantments, but even the fact that I could sometimes cast Spine multiple times a game, it was still too high of a cost and ended up being a dead card.
Instead, I've chosen to go the route of Fork and Reverberate (or alternatively Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast if your meta is heavy blue) to protect my big sorceries and key creatures from counterspells, or to just copy effects that I like. It isn't the same as being able to remove a devastating Oblivion Ring on my commander, but as a mainboard card I get to utilize them more often than I would the more fringe case of being shut down by an enchantment. There would also be rare occasions where I could copy removal that can hit enchantments and use it to remove the one bothering me too! I've worked to put as much redundancy in the deck as I can to give me the best chance of not being dead in the water after a particularly bad piece of removal or control, but sometimes it still happens.

Yeah, Damping Sphere always causes me problems. I've been able to deal with it before with the Oblivion Stone, but I've also sideboarded in Scour from Existence to deal with it as well. So I've got ways around it, but it's definitely a pain in the ass...lol Effectively the same issue with Blood Moon as well.
