Standard* Mono-Red Red Deck Wins

voojeff Score: 6


Description

Prototype standard RDW under construction from. I started with the most simple and easy concept which is mono red dealing direct damage. My idea was to keep the curve low, deal damage fast and try to keep a presence in the board while I hit.I would appreciate any inputs especially on how to keep the deck standard post rotation (RTR). Thanks.

I will change Arc Trail to electrickery once it becomes available in card search section. Also previewed a couple of upcoming RTR cards (not yet in this data base) of whichAnnihilating Fire (1RR 3 damage exile instant) and Bellows Lizard( R 1/1 pumpable creature) look promising.

Reverberate is b-b-bad. Swap it out for another Pillar of Flame , Ash Zealot , and Wild Guess .

I think you underestimate Ash Zealot . It's an amazing creature for RDW.

My experience with Reverberate has not been b-b-bad. It has actually saved me games more than a couple of times.Then again I have never used it to duplicate my own burn spells unless I was in striking distance or if it would yield such an enormous amount of damage that I could not pass on it, then it would only b-b-bad to the guy on the other side of the table. I need the Reverberate to set up my pieces, using it on either counter spells or getting an eye for an eye on creature harming spells that would otherwise leave me without an attacker or a blocker. I do understand the card has very limited reach in other decks but in mine I truly find it essential. Thank you though for the comment. Everything that has been posted here I truly appreciate and take into a lot of consideration.

Dangerous Wager does work when you have no other cards in hand, which is why I like it more than Wild Guess .

If you're looking for pumping effects, you could try playtesting with Stonewright since it gives both soul-bound creatures Firebreathing .

@dcarpntr

the reason for the reluctance in the Dangerous Wager has always been because I thought it was Faithless Looting . Now that I got that straight I am able to realize that Dangerous Wager IS a much superior card.

thanks again

card:Devil's Play is a great card and would also work well with Ash Zealot . How is this deck working post-rotation?

read Ash Zealot wrong -! Sorry. Ignore my last, but look into card:Devil's Play!

Hi. I actually had to change the deck to make it competitive against the selesnya beasts out there. Splashing black for more efficient removal gave an advantage against the prevalent meta.

Burn, Sligh, Die!

Please check it out. I would love to hear what you think.
