I like this deck overall. I think it needs some maindeck Blood Moon in this build. Also since you have Faithless Looting and Serum Visions the Madcap Experiment + Platinum Emperion combo would be good in here. You can use the looting and scrying to dig away the Emperion or extra copies of Madcap or get to it faster. I've seen other UR lists trying it here and there. You're already free of artifacts except for the Dragon's Claw on the side, which could easily be something else since the Emperion combo stops burn anyways.

Lantern of Insight decks would be the main reason to side Platinum Angel right now.

I use Platinum Angel on the side sometimes for mill decks or other weird decks that win the game without damaging you, like Approach of the Second Sun. Right now though those decks aren't very relevant so I need the sideboard slots for other things. You still take the damage with angel so when he dies you die.

Big Game Hunter is an obscure option as well if you go the madness route. I'm using one on my sideboard right now because he's good against Gurmag Angler decks and good with Liliana of the Veil.

and yea like the other guy said, Fiery Temper, Risk Factor, Asylum Visitor and Lingering Souls might be a good place to start. Maybe get some Faithless Looting in there to be more like blue.

I've seen him used in Vintage before in Dack Fayden decks.

That's why I have the Wear / Tear. Sideboard slots are really tight in Modern so putting 2 spells on 1 piece of cardboard is a big factor.

Try this, it's a list of the winning decks right now.

Now that I look at it, what are your thoughts on changing the Ancient Grudge to a 3rd Kolaghan's Command? They both hit artifacts, and the trade off would be "better against artifacts" for a better generalist card.

It's just so hard to find the sideboard slots in a deck like this in Modern. There are too many werewolves and not enough silver bullets. A personal problem I have with Collective Brutality on the side is that it's sort of a grindy value card (unless you're using it for Reanimator shenanigans on the discard) so it's harder for me to evaluate when exactly to side it in than a "shoot you in between the eyes" type card. Obviously CB comes in against burn because CB wrecks burn, but beyond that.... It's hard to cut the silver bullets. Maybe when Dredge goes away again and the Leyline of the Void can go away, that's eating up a huge chunk of sideboard on its own. I guess the Surgical Extraction isn't as necessary if I have such strong graveyard hate, but Surgical Extraction can also be good against combo decks if you Thoughtseize their key piece and then extract it out of the game.

I did end up adding Gonti, Lord of Luxury if for no other reason than that I want 4 4-drops to come in for the Bloodbraid Elf in the rare instances where Bloodbraid Elf is bad.

I just meant for cutting down to 60. You generally want a slight drop from 1 to 2 and then a more significant drop from 2 to 3, which helps ensure that you can reliably cast a spell every turn. That's what they call "the mana curve". It's most important for fast aggressive decks and least relevant to combo decks, and since you're a red aggro deck it's critically important to get the curve right. If you aren't casting a 1 on turn 1, a 2 on turn 2, and a 3 on turn 3, you aren't maximizing the value of your early turns which is critical when you're trying to kill them as fast as possible through creature combat.

I see you have a glut of 2 drops, so I'd look there.

check the bar graph on the side and cut it so that the mana curve descends properly would be my advice. Often when I can't decide on a cut I look at the curve and figure out how to make it curve better. That's especially important in a red aggro deck.

kinda getting off topic but what about Electrostatic Field in a Storm shell? Could maybe get the Enigma Drake + Fling combo in there too.

I really think it's worth it. Against a blue deck I'd much rather slam a Choke than a Liliana of the Veil. It's just a quick free win, like slamming Blood Moon against a tapped out Abzan. Against blue you have to wait for an opening between the counter magic, but they do usually tap out at some point, even if it's to drop a Jace, the Mind Sculptor.

I think there's enough blue right now to justify it. Not just from Jace, the Mind Sculptor or Death's Shadow decks, but Storm is mostly blue, blue moon is still out there with Pestermite, Izzet shenanigans, etc.

maybe get some Countryside Crusher and Seismic Assault in there for a plan B, I've seen that deck lurking around in the shadows of the metagame.

Agree with the above poster about the Arclight Phoenix, but looking at Enigma Drake and Crackling Drake makes me think about Fling. Isn't there a new card that recently came out that has a similar effect?

8 pieces of Combo Piece A and 8 pieces of Combo Piece B usually makes a loose idea into a thing when a new set comes out.

yea it's really good when you think about it, I still see Legacy Goblins every now and then and that's one of the key cards for beating the fast combo decks. Risk Factor only gets you either 8 damage or 3 cards for 3 mana and a discarded card, vs 5 damage for 1 mana and a token from Goblin Rabblemaster or Siege-Gang Commander.

Red is already good enough though, there's no way they'd bring it back today. I'd probably sleeve up Goblins myself if that were the case.

This makes me hope they never bring back Goblin Grenade.

It's only come up a couple times so far but it seems like a good fit for the deck, combines spell damage in the air with potential extra cards and can be thrown away to Liliana of the Veil for partial value.
