This is my attempt to make the most competitive Red White deck I can possibly make. The deck tries to overcome the short comings of Red White (most notably poor card draw and card search abilities) by slowing and hindering your opponents. All the while the deck plays to Red White's strengths: most notably destruction for any type and number of permanents.

The first thing Red White struggles with is mana acceleration. While there are a few cards like Weathered Wayfarer and Knight of the White Orchid this is not the specialty of the deck. This deck ramps using the basic artifacts ( Sol Ring , Commander's Sphere , Boros Signet , Mana Crypt and Mana Vault ), and the few odd ramp spells in Red White.

What is far more important in the early game is stopping everyone else from doing what they want. Spells you want to see in opening hand include: Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Stony Silence , Kataki, War's Wage and/or Chancellor of the Annex . Preventing other players ramp is Top Priority at this point in the game; your opponents’ deck will out race you if you let them.

Once the deck has begun to work it will quickly draw hate from your opponents. From here the only solution is to go all in on stifling your opponents. This comes in several flavors: taxes, mana denial, search denial, and ability denial.

Taxes: throwing off your opponents’ plans are their mana curve increases. Show

Mana denial: preventing your opponents from using their lands effectively or efficiently. Show

Search denial: preventing your opponents from looking for answers. Show

Ability denial: It doesn’t do anything. Show

The eventual plan of the deck is to win with combat (Boros knows nothing else). The easiest ways to win are with an overwhelming force of hasty tokens or let Aurelia do the work.

Always be on top of your effects on the game. Show

Beware of Nonbos. Show
