Description

Post-rote Naya style deck. Not a WHOLE lot of synergy,but does pretty well. I've noticed it struggles against White Weenie pretty hard. Not sure how to mend.

Updates

Two weeks in a row sitting at the top. Feels nice, even if both victories were results of the opponent in the 2nd place seat get mana screwed all day, e'ryday.

Vorapede, even when siding in never saw play. Not sure if good or not. Never felt the need to sideboard much, but the deck still struggles versus white weenie and I suspect Tokens will present the same problem.

If the Hellion Crucible is to ever leave this deck, it's for colored mana. This card is too amazing not to run in a deck with red sources, IMO. When the game gets to a grind, I have no creatures, they have no creatures, and I have a Gavony Township , that's not too helpful. The Crucible gives me one more option. That last ditch play. And the card has single-handedly given me games I would have lost otherwise. It honestly hasn't disappointed me yet.

The township is only more efficient if I have creatures, and they need to be creatures I want to swing with, and/or multiple creatures to get a similar benefit. Township isn't BAD, but to me, it's not as good.

Sorry, my counterpoints always come out "ranty".... But Hellion Crucible is a great, and underrated, card. You may want to toy around with it a little. It isn't a show-stopper like some cards, but it commands a little respect.

At first glance it looks good! One suggestion... I like Shock a lot! However Incinerate might be a better choice!

If youre having trouble with weenies...bonfire of the damned might help. Actually, if you are having trouble against weenies, I might put bonfire in my naya deck (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/standard-naya-blink/). Mine has a little bit more synergy, but unfortunately I had no room for wolfir silverheart.

also did you forget about Clifftop Retreat ? umm... Vorapede in sideboard? hum... how about Ray of Revelation instead? or Searing Spear as board against weenies?

Didn't forget Clifftop Retreat , just don't feel the need to go out of my way for them. If I find some I'll trade for them.

Honestly I'd love some Bonfire of the Damned , where should I sneak those in if/when I can find them?

4 Shock is not necessary here, and I think Pillar of Flame is better, despite instant speed. Maybe 3 pillar, 1 shock, and 2 bonfire.
