pie chart Chandra's Masticore of Recursive Win

Modern Burn Combo Mono-Red Reanimator Red Deck Wins



This morning I rediscovered Molten-Tail Masticore. I never really gave it the time of day before, but now I've decided to give it a whirl in modern, a format with lotsa options.

I've discovered a lovely synergy between our Masticore friend and Chandra Ablaze. You discard a bunch of red stuff, exile the creatures for big-time damage (and to recur your Chandra's Phoenix's) with the Molten-Tail Masticore, and save up your instants and sorceries for Chandra to cast for you. As I said before, Chandra's Phoenix is another key player, as it is able to COME BACK FROM THE GRAVE.... And so on. Other artifacts/artifact creatures allow me to play a few copies of Kuldotha Phoenix too. Faithless Looting fills up my graveyard whilst letting me find my pieces, and Thunderous Wrath is just amazing as well. You'll have no trouble hard-casting it, but you can always discard it, and save it for Chandra's Ultimate.

Please leave suggestions for this deck, as I am a n00b at Modern! Any helpful sideboard cards would be espescially welcome!

If you'd like to play this deck without sinking a million dollars into various "sword of..."s, Mask of Memory will fill it's hole rather well.
