What about Valduk, Keeper of the Flame ? He's pretty much shirtless.

Wow those cards were never on my radar. They are all really good cards. Vizkopa Guildmage is not that fast.

Valduk, Keeper of the Flame is fast. Voltron with Enchantment cards ones that care about power mostly.

I don't remember seeing a Viridian Longbow he uses lots of fight style cards.

Stinging Shot is in there because there are a few flying decks running around and it has cycling.

I put Darksteel Pendant in my Krosan Warchief deck and I love it, so I'll add it here.

Ulamog's Crusher is so good I should put it in every deck.

I like the first strike idea but he uses combat tricks with Vine Mare as well. Vine Mare is probably the hardest one to beat. The ways I've beaten him when he has Vine Mare was outlasting him until he was top decking.

Valduk, Keeper of the Flame I can beat with my Satyr Enchanter deck. But in the other match ups I win if I can make him get to top deck mode again.

I'm gonna add the ramp cards you suggested including some of the removal you suggested. Do you have any other suggestions?

Also what's your thoughts on blood rush effects like Rubblebelt Maaka

Hey Flooremoji I want you to help me fine tune this a bit. My opponents are playing. Garruk's Packleader , Vine Mare , Vizkopa Guildmage , Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , and Soulblade Corrupter + SoulBlade and I few others. So what suggestions do you have before I buy this list

you need some form form of card draw and Insolent Neonate just filters your hand, so maybe adding Dragon Mantle would help a bit on Champion of the Flame and Valduk, Keeper of the Flame .

if you get to many lands on hand after the early game i suggest Magmatic Insight or when you got nothing usefull or no hand at all as well as being an instant Dangerous Wager or Wild Guess .

Kazuul's Toll Collector seems like an okay addition. (keep in mind i havent tested Magmatic Insight nor Kazuul's Toll Collector in any deck).

Extra Combat steps help you seal the win and since you're only concerned with one creature swinging you can play the only one with flashback: Seize the Day.

Equipoise is my new favourite white tech when you know your creatures are more valuable than your opponents and expect to be outnumbered. It can also prevent interaction by phasing opponents untapped lands out or troublesome artifacts. If your opponent has an artifact creature you can choose it last as an artifact and have them be down a creature from parody which often means an empty board to swing out on.

I would suggest some of the other mardu commanders that also enjoy equipment to be in here so you have a plan B. Valduk, Keeper of the Flame, Kemba, Kha Regent, and Balan, Wandering Knight.

Bludgeon Brawl is a funny card that turns all your mana rocks into equipment as well.

Valduk, Keeper of the Flame seems like a lot of fun, but in mono-red you can't really do enchantress. That and I wanna have 3+ colors.

Doran, the Siege Tower is once again, fun, but not a particularly great enchantress.

Can anyone comment on one of the ones I'm already considering, other than untraceablez?

A choice that is a little more unconventional, but you might consider for stoking the creative juices, is Valduk, Keeper of the Flame. He's a tough sell, being mono-red, and he's more aura and equipment focused, but he does provide a different option that you can get creative with. And there are plenty of red enchantment auras you can run with him. And you don't have to deal combat damage to get the tokens, so you can choose when you want to be aggressive. The tokens make great fodder for cards like Goblin Bombardment, Ashnod's Altar, etc.

At any rate, he's worth a look, if for no other reason than to shake things up a bit.

I'll second Glissa, the Traitor. I've enjoyed playing her as a commander, but I am particularly partial to reanimator/graveyard strategies. Feldon of the Third Path would be another reanimator option.

A different approach to consider is Sram, Senior Edificer. He is more equipment focused (and vehicles), but he's a cantrip on a stick, and there are lots of low CMC equipment out there that can get the card draw going.

Another option I've put together is Valduk, Keeper of the Flame, with an equipment theme. Lots of fun, pretty aggressive though.
