Are you looking for face hunting, explosive plays, and the sort of top deck and wreck moments that only a red deck can bring you?

Do you want to punish win-more synergy durdles with cold hard damage? Well this deck doesn't mess around with Enchantments and Planeswalkers that take a long time to get on the board and accrue advantage, we just go for the throat.

I made this deck on MTGArena. It has netted me a ton of wins and it always goes off with a bang! Honestly give this a go! To top it off, the deck is only about $50 in paper.

The play goes like this: You play early game to get damage where you can from your creatures, sometimes you don't block just because you can then attack and deal a ton of damage with a nice thud, it is a bit risky this way. Shock , Lightning Strike , Murder are good for clearing up the board, rarely used for extra damage. Hired Poisoner is a great blocker and hardly gets blocked for a bit of early game trading, it all adds up. Goblin Instigator makes a board for blocking aggro, as does Raptor Hatchling , which is quite annoying. Viashino Pyromancer gives a little bit of damage and another blocker, I have found this 2 damage can make a lot of difference.

So you do all that just to survive and get a bit of damage on them. Then you explode with Yargle, Glutton of Urborg and Thud .

I have literally done Inferno Hellion , pass, Gravitic Punch , pass, Gravitic Punch with jumpstart, Thud . IT IS SO DUMB. I was basically losing a match until I pulled this off, I was using all my creatures and small burn to control the board as best I could, but was getting beat up. This is the miracle I play for right here.

Another great line is T1: Hired Poisoner , T2: Viashino Pyromancer for 2, swing Hired Poisoner for 1, T3: Risk Factor they take 4, T4: Risk Factor , they take 4. T5: Yargle, Glutton of Urborg pass, T6: Thud Yargle for 9!

Here is the explosive power in action, the opponent had no answers; good game:
