[RETIRED] Mono Red Devotion - 3rd place 10/23/2013

Standard Aggro Burn Competitive Mono-Red Red Deck Wins

MrDaBucket Score: 10


This deck has now gotten top 4 at FNM and top 8 at Gameday Theros.

Frostburn Weird is for Mono Red and Red/Blue Izzet decks. 1/4 makes it hard to burn, and even harder to get around. If you really want to, you can make him into a 2/3, 3/2, or a 4/1 and swing with him. Good for your devotion too.

Mizzium Mortars is when creatures get big. Good against Mono Black, Pack Rats, G/B, Mono Blue, Mono Green, and a few other decks. Nykthos can get it overloaded as early as turn 3.

Legion Loyalists are for Mono Blue Devotion, G/W Tokens, Pack Rat decks, and Izzet Pyromancer decks. Because who wants to be blocked by tokens, am I right?


Done with this deck for a while.Might return depending on where the format goes. To look at new updates, check out my Rakdos Devotion deck.

Round 1 went 2-1 vs G/B reanimator w/pack rats Round 2 went 2-0 vs Golgari G/B Control
Round 3 went 0-2 vs Naya Aggro due to several mulligans and 1 land both games Round 4 went 0-2 vs some kind of Orzhov Control that I had to fold to due to too many lands both rounds. Have no idea what the deck was going to do, but it didn't matter. Round 5 went 2-1 vs G/W Tokens.

Too. Many. Lands.

Down to 21 now, with just 3 Nykthos.

Replaced Purphoros with Chandra. Much more value there( and synergy with the Phoenix).

Considering Titan's Strength

Got 5th last night (due to tiebreaker. 2-5th place all went 4-1).There was no Mono Blue in my meta, so my fears of that are gone.

1st round 2-1 vs Golgari Control
2nd round 2-0 vs Pack Rats 3rd round 2-1 vs Izzet control 4th round 2-0 vs Mono Blue Control 5th round 2-0 vs Rakdos Aggro

Esper Control was there like crazy, Mono Black Devotion (with white-splashed or blue-splashed variants), and Golgari Control. I ended up getting 2 Burning Earths before the tournament started for this reason.

My only loss was due to land flooding, and for the rest of the night, I sideboarded one of my Nykthos out to mainboard a Burning Earth.I'm now considering lowering the land count.

Got 3rd on last Friday's FNM.Smashed U/W Control.Did pretty well against Izzet counterburn.Lost once to Naya Hex.Got 5th at Gameday the next day.

Plays great so far! Might add a Stormbreath once the post-launch prices cool down. Was lucky to get one at prerelease.

@Shift alright I'll check it out. I feel like Red doesn't have a go-to primer these days, unlock Mono Black, Mono Blue, and Esper do. I mean, my Red is different from the other Red I see around.
