FrontalLobotomy on mono red burn w/ m15

4 hours ago

dont know how I feel about the shrapnel blast. I'd go with Stoke the Flames cut the shrapnel blast. then for the ornithopter you have some choices: Skullcrack is solid, if you want to stick with creatures then go with either Young Pyromancer or Chandra's Phoenix . also I would recomend gutter snipe and throwing in some more low CC burn i.e. Shock Spark Jolt (scry=good).

ps I realize that you wanted rotation ready but I feel that the is really not feasible at least at the moment. Sorry.

lemme know your thoughts, Thanks

The Triton Shorestalker are there to cipher Hidden Strings onto so I can do a lot of tapping and untapping of Grindclock and possibly Isochron Scepter if I've got the mana for it. That said, if I drop all 4 Profane Memento into the sideboard and 1 each of both Triton Shorestalker and Dampen Thought , I could then throw in 3 each of the Young Pyromancer and Hedron Crab .

Profane Memento is useful against a creature heavy deck, but thats it. Against anything else its useless. Young Pyromancer is good pretty much all the time. Against creature heavy decks it creates chump blockers for as long as you need it to. Against creature light decks it can be its own wincon.

I think you should swap out the memento for YP and the shorestalkers for the crabs.

I should definitely try to fit in some Young Pyromancer and Hedron Crab . I was thinking that Profane Memento would be a good way to stall, as I'd be earning life pretty quick once I got even a few mills in, especially if I could get more than one out. It might not be the best way though, nothing can really take the place of good chump blockers. What would be your suggestion for what to switch out? I can definitely see throwing in a playset of Evolving Wilds to help Hedron Crab .

ohhh true. I completely blanked on the instant only clause of the sceptre.

It looks like a pretty cool list overall, have you considered adding some Hedron Crab ? Its pretty much a mainstay in modern mill decks, especially because of all the fetch lands most decks play. Also, Young Pyromancer would be good to stall against aggro decks, and some combination of Spell Pierce and Spell Snare would be good to protect your stuff and win some counter wars.

PlattBonnay i am glad to get some help of yours :)

i will try the full playset Serum Visions now ! They do a good job

i wasn't sure about Shivan Reef because it slows down the Sulfur Falls - and i am not sure about Sulfur Falls either because two of them in opening hand are just like Izzet Guildgate ... till now my mana wasn't a big deal (my last test was with just 1 YoungPyromancer, but he is so effective that i play 4 copies now and maybe my manacurve needs these fixing lands now - let's give it a try)

i added the Steam Vents to my wantslist they are perfect !!!, but they are expensive too - i bought 2 till now and i bet i could get 2 more when they rotate out of standard for lower price hopefully

one last question: what do you think about Manamorphose in this deck? it replaces itself and 'lowers' the deckcount like Gitaxian Probe and fetches do, additionally it is a spell that can flip Delver of Secrets  Flip or activate Young Pyromancer and at least it can fix my manacurve a little (i can play more Mountain and it can transform RR , UR into RR, UR , UU)

the cons of this card are the decksize of 60 and the price (but i already got a playset :p just in case someone wants to rebuild this deck it isn't a firstchoice pick but it offers flexibility so feel free to give it a try and/or share your opinion with me)

Ensnaring Bridge is a must have for the side board.

Suggestions: Lava Spike , Browbeat , Thunderous Wrath , Young Pyromancer , Guttersnipe , Pyromancer's Ascension, Faithless Looting , Anger of the Gods , PyroStorm, and then there is a few 2cmc burn spells for 3 damage.

CurdBrosBrewingCo thanks for the ideas of utility lands because It never occurred to me to use such a land like Cavern of Souls and Desolate Lighthouse also should I just replace the devils with Young Pyromancer ? I think making some more tokens would be a better choice then having a one drop threat. Price
