Slaughter Games can't be countered by spells or abilities.

Name a nonland card. Search target opponent's graveyard, hand, and library for any number of cards with that name and exile them. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

Nice deck, the ONE card that could probably beat it easily is Slaughter Games, so maybe have a back-up creature that does something similar like Tidewater Minion. Otherwise, nice job!

DarkHero: i don't believe "misspeaking" has ever caused anyone to lose when dealing with infinite combos. that sort of thing happens more when people use cards that say "choose a card name" and choose the wrong name, in which they absolutely deserve to lose. if someone plays a Slaughter Games and says Borborygmos while i'm playing Borborygmos Enraged, then thats too bad for them.

Fancy deck there, you beautiful son of bitch.
Only question in my head is with access to red, why Infinite Obliteration over Slaughter Games? As your list is already running Push, Command, and Prophecy, you can handily deal with a little white list Ballista. On the draw, Obliteration comes online the turn after Heliod anyway, and it lets you fight both Lotus Field and Inverter without the anxiety of interaction. This might be irrelevant, though, with bannings coming soon.

Good point Vash13 I've played against combo decks and have lost to the same combo over and over again so I put several cards in the deck to deal with it. Not being in blue I had to get creative. I started using cards like Sadistic Sacrament, Praetor's Grasp, Slaughter Games and Jester's Cap type cards to deal with the combo before it happens. It worked great. It worked so good that they stopped playing combo against me lol. Playstyles and deck building can change the meta.

DarkHero on that card you hate

Thoughtseize crushed my soul enough to make me stop playing 60 card formats. Just because I wasn't good at magic at the time and kept being surprised when it screwed me. I'd be all excited with my starting hand, get a turn one of these, and totally lose traction and panic.

Also, I traded a Blightsteel Colossus for a Parallel Lives because I was trying to build a human tribal tokens standard deck, which was never finished. I regret that a lot and seeing him makes me sad.

Mostly just bad memories associated with cards.

I've made some people hate Slaughter Games a few times. I ran a causal tabletop group in college and brought that as a joke. I knew their decks because we played daily, if not I would Duress to see their hand and guess what to get rid of next I'm sure there is some hate for that one.

I'd question Unlicensed Disintegration in a format with Dreadbore / Angrath's Rampage / Bedevil particularly since you can gain a prowess trigger from a sorcery as easily as an instant.

You might want to add a sideboard, I'd suggest Rakdos Charm / Alpine Moon / Slaughter Games / Sorcerous Spyglass and Duress would be sensible inclusions...

I hope these suggestions help, good luck with your deck.

Thanks for the comment Kjartan :D

I was thinking about taking out 4x Lightning Bolt for 4x Inquisition of Kozilek but it never felt satisfying during playtesting. It felt like i had very dead cards unless i had one in my opening hand.

Of course my playtesting has been kinda superficial and my friends mostly play aggro decks so there's that...

I guess my plancan be slamming Duress and Slaughter Games in the sideboard specifically against combo?

sergiodelrio on Red Deck W...ait, What?! - T1 Emrakul (+PLAYGUIDE)

Flawless_Sin thanks for commenting!

The concern has come up actually, but Emrakul is really hard to remove because of its protection clause once it's in the game, even harder to exile. Cards like Slaughter Games or even my Chandra's +1 are a much greater threat in regards to that imo. I'm not yet convinced this concern is more than a hypothetical one and will only be addressed as soon as this changes.

I'll keep your suggestions in mind, tho!

I've tinkered a lot with various Polymorph/Indomitable Creativity versions, but this Rw version is supposed to be as explosive as possible, while being consistent, which I think I accomplished. I figure a Ux version will play a lot different and gets its resilience from counterspells. This one... well, not a lot of answers to a T2 Emrakul ;)
