M14 Big Red (with Theros)

Standard Aggro Burn Mono-Red

Raziello Score: 1


Description

Finally here it is - my longwaited Theros with some fuel for my mono red aggro:)

Here is the idea - we start with some 1st turn drops like - Firedrinker Satyr , Rakdos Cackler or hopefully Legion Loyalist . Second turn mainly consists of Ash Zealot or some more one mana drops. Turn 3 is hopefully Boros Reckoner or some more of the aforementioned thingies:) Turn 4 is reserved for Purphoros, God of the Forge or Chandra, Pyromaster . If the opponent is still alive he has some serious problems ahead - Stormbreath Dragon and Fanatic of Mogis to finish him off .

There are as well some burn spells as Shock and Lighnning Strike which could help me at the beginning and of course my very favorite Anger of the Gods to get rid of some annoying stuff like Voice of Resurgence .

This is mainly it. I will put some results of my plays with this deck but please be so kind and help me improve it so that I can be competitive.

Thanks in advance for your time and effort!:)

Cheers

Guttersnipe is not really an aggro card. it's more of an izzet combo "build a deck around this" card. I would replace with 2x Rakdos Cackler . Ogre Battledriver is counter-intuitive when your highest mana dude is him. In fact all that does is slow you down. Another good chance to cut and add more cacklers. I'm not really liking the idea of pyromancers in here, but I can see how well that combos with Molten Birth . I would replace Lava Axe with Armed / Dangerous , or Madcap Skills . You also seem to be lacking effective removal outside of shock. Perhaps Mizzium Mortars would fit here somewhere.

Definately main deck burning earth over lava axe and act of treason :D Not all decks use creatures and so treason isn't good against every deck. Burning earth however will stop most deck :D Especially the hardest deck this deck will face...lifegain control. Also could Five-Alarm Fire replace the massive raid? All of those 1/1s and creatures etc dealing damage even as chump blockers...could be good :)

You could pssibly try Flames of the Firebrand over annihilating fire as come Theros there won't be many things that have to be exiled, leave that for the side board.

I second Dickified on the Flames of the Firebrand . Five-Alarm Fire might fit but keep in mind it's slow. Good against control: bad against aggro. Also you need more Boros Reckoner I.M.O.
