Well I intended for this deck to go a little bit bigger and prey on other creature decks. Also as it is this deck can do virtually all its damage without attacking, making it very strong against W/U Monument. I made a bad call though as I did face control 4 times at the open and lost 3 of those times. So maybe Soul-Scar would be better against control but I doubt it.

If you want to play a much better deck against control I would play this...

I was expecting to face a LOT of UW Monument, and other strategies with little removal like ramp and emerge. I was wrong. I went 4-4 and played some form of UR Control 4 times. I lost three of those matches with my other loss being due to bad mana issues. I'm thinking URx control is going to be very popular this meta so I'm probably going to run something more like this.

333hellopeeps333, thanks so much for your comment! I will attempt to answer all of your questions.

I don't think I would run Desert of the Fervent over Sunscorched Desert. I would run them in conjunction. I just didn't want to have too many tapped lands although it might be right to run a couple.

Mirrorpool is there as a kind of late game mana sink. Copying a Glorybringer and exerting and killing is pretty broken. It will also trigger Bedlam Reveler's ETB effect and it gives a lot more reach to a top deck burn spell in the late game. Since we're mono-red and this is our only tall and it isn't a big deal to include 2.

I think Chandra, Torch of Defiance is great, maybe even the best card in the deck, but she can kind of slow it down. The deck can definitely be competitive without her, just maybe not at very high levels of play.

I like your version of the deck a lot. I would say go ahead and throw in the Sunscorched Deserts, and also go to 4 Collective Defiance. It's probably the best burn spell in the deck. Also if you have Glorybringer, it sure is a helluva Magic card!

Best of luck! Thanks again for your comment!

I think Kefnet's Last Word is probably just bad. Maybe try Supreme Will? Really solid card from HOU.

Slush, thanks so much for your comment! I think I might agree with you and switch Cathartic Reunion to Tormenting Voice.

I might also agree with you about Abrade. I think U/R Control might be the worst matchup for this deck and that would help a lot. I just had Lightning Axe because it seems like these decks always run 2 to go with Fiery Temper. It has been one of the weaker cards though.

If you want to see this deck in action check out my twitch stream(link in the description). I plan on playing it tonight. Thanks again for your comment!

Firebrand Archer is a new card from HOU that some are saying is better than Guttersnipe.

Typically, Bedlam Reveler is very bad with counterspells. I would also run Hour of Devastation. It's probably the best boardwipe available to your colors.

Supreme Will and Abrade are some other nice additions from HOU that could really help here.

Some decks literally cannot beat a turn three Fevered Visions, but those decks aren't really prominent in standard right now. It's unfortunate because I really love the card.

Thanks again for the input and good luck to you as well!

myronrocks, I don't think Fevered Visions is really possible to maindeck in standard right now, at least not week 1, but I could be wrong. I made a version of the deck splashing blue for Fevered Visions out of the sideboard, and it just seemed really bad honestly.

Refuse / Cooperate is a cool card. I'll consider it.

Thanks for your comment!
