CHANGES 10/31/14

Added 4 Dragonskull Summit 2 Temple of Malice 4 Guttersnipe 4 Terminate 3 Duress

Removed 3 Mountain 3 Swamp 4 Kiln Fiend 3 Whipflare From Sideboard 3 Smash to Smithereens From Sideboard 1 Blightning

Moved 3 Slaughter Games To Sideboard 3 Rakdos's Return To Sideboard

Not sure how I forgot about those dual lands but thank you for the reminder Death_The_Kid.

Young Pyromancer was definetly up for consideration but I wasn't sure how good of an idea it would be considering how prevalent Board Wipes are in the Midrange and Control archetypes along with no way of giving my elementals haste. I thought having fewer creatures that hit harder would be a way to counteract this and then make the summoning sickness less of a hinderance for me. I'll defintely put it back in the maybe-boar but will have to think about it some more.

And there is absolutely no denying that Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtsieze are great cards for R/B control but tog et a playset of each would cost almost half of what the deck is currently valued at. As of now I just want to focus on makin the deck affordable and then upgrading it as my budget allows. Afterall it's highly unlikely that I'll be heading to any high stakes tournaments anytime soon.

Also I noticed noone mentioned Sire Of Insanity I knw the CMC is a tad high but do you guys think he's sideboard worthy in R/B control?

Cool deck.

It looks like Manamorphose would be useful here. Mana fix, mana replacement, cantrip, and triggers Young Pyromancer .

maybe maybe drop Kiln Fiend for Monastery Swiftspear drop guildgates for Temple of Malice if you can or even Dragonskull Summit hmm I know you are on a budget but do try to get Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek more removal is Terminate good card over all is Young Pyromancer I am also getting into modern with a Rakdos deck but mine is more aggro, good look in a new format :)

are you going for burn or aggro?

Either way, a few things could help you out.

my deck This Hand of Mine is Burning Red may give you some ideas.

Eidolon of the Great Revel may hurt you, but more importantly, it hurts other players. It's triggered by almost everything that comes after it, especially removal spells.

I'd definitely run 4 Incinerate before I ran 4 Lightning Strike .

fetches are in Modern now so you could run 4 Wooded Foothills and 4 Bloodstained Mire with 10 mountains. deck thinning from fetches is more noticeable the fewer lands you have, so using them to maximize your shot at drawing creatures and burn is pretty strong.

with Fetches involved, Searing Blaze becomes a much better card. It still requires 2 targets, which is annoying if all their creatures are dead, but otherwise a very powerful card when fetches are involved

Young Pyromancer reaps many of the same rewards as Monastery Swiftspear . If only it had haste :/

Stoke the Flames can be a good finisher if your meta tends to put things like Wall of Omens in your way or otherwise stabilizes at <= 4 life. Just turn those creatures that can't hit anything into mana for a free burn spell. (nice with Young Pyromancer tokens involved too.)

I'm not sure if Thunderous Wrath should be included. You can't reliably cast it as miracle and if you accidentally get it in your hand it's a terribly high cost. I've always liked Searing Blood because it removes most early creatures from an opponent, and deals face damage besides. Compliments the Searing Blaze well.

Otherwise you could probably get some Young Pyromancer to put a bunch of tokens on the board, or Kiln Fiend to get 3 damage extra out of every spell. Note that his ability can be activated multiple times in one turn, it just doesn't last long like the tokens, but that should be no issue in an RDW :)

Could you maybe give me some feedback on my deck? I'd appreciate it a lot!

If you want more creatures Guttersnipe and Young Pyromancer are both really helpful with red decks. Another good card is Shock .
