Rhonas is definitely way better than Crocodile, I'd totally play him if I had a set. I may just throw in some Tireless Trackers as I'm not super impressed with Crocodile of the Crossing.


I have not, but it's worth a shot! That would definitely change the board around. SSM could do well in a burn heavy version of this deck but then I would probably remove green all together and just go B/R, which could kick ass. Nest, Burn spells, Fatal Push / Grasp of Darkness and some other shit could be a great deck too. It's worth a shot for sure.

Papagenu I actually picked some up recently, going to try it out at FNM and if it works as well as I'd like I will update the post. :)

The Kaladesh cats are garbage. ;)

Hi! So instead of putting in Khenra Charioteer I would recommend simply running Driven / Despair. You don't have to splash black for "despair", but you can if you choose to. I feel that would be a better usage of a slot. I would also cut out Samut, Voice of Dissent and red in general. Longtusk Cub doesn't get a whole lot of use in here as the energy theme he needs to survive isn't very strong here like it is in the meta energy decks. You could cut Cub out completely and add something like Always Watching or Oketra's Monument for some extra tokens and the ability to reduce the cost of your white cats. Attune / Cub might work okay, but I feel like there could be other combinations that could be of more benefit. You could even add Oath of Ajani to the deck as that will give you a +1/+1 counter much like Always Watching , but it will apply to your tokens unlike Always Watching .

Of course, if your deck is working fine as is, keep it as is! These are just some suggestions I've had in my cat deck and they have worked well, though I replace Driven / Despair with Appeal / Authority in my GW cat deck I can cast both sides of Appeal / Authority. I usually wait until I have Pride Sovereign out to use Appeal / Authority so he gets really, really big.

here is my cat deck for reference.

Hi multimedia

I actually have been using Key to the City lately, just forgot to mention it on here!

I will update that as well as some pictures and whatnot, thank you for the suggestion.

Mimic is a definite yes. It's a car lord so to speak, it can definitely be run in here.

I wouldn't run Cub unless you have another way of generating energy for Cub to get big from. Adorned Pouncer is just as good as Cub to start, and if he gets eternalized, is much better than Cub.

A couple things I'd change.

You have too many high CMC creatures. Sunmare, Myriarch, and Regal are all very high on the curve and you're only running 20 lands. That is a major issue. I would cut down on the Myriarchs and the Sunmares. Pouncer is a dope 2 drop and should be a 4 of. Only having one in there and having 4 Myriarchs is kind of weird. Put Serpopard on the sideboard. Run 24 lands instead of 20, because you'll be mana starved a lot of times. Can't play your high CMC cards without the mana to play them, y'know?

I'd cut the removal in favor of Stasis Snare, Cast Out, or Immolating Glare. Those will be better if your opponent drops some shit you can't kill with those spells you have now.

Drop cryptolith rite for two more anointed processions. You need the token reproduction more than you need a couple extra mana, but I can see why you ran so few lands with cryptolith in there. 4x Procession would help you out more in my opinion.

Sunmare is a super dope idea in this deck though, I didn't even think about running that. Combo with Regal Caracal is a sick win condition.

Thanks! Thundercats are bad ass, this deck is definitely fun.

Ol_man First and foremost, thank you for your kind words.

I too have found that drawing a Nest when I could've drawn Hapatra is unfortunate, but I feel like I'd rather have one of them rather than none of them. I think if I do take anything out it'd be 2x Nest of Scarabs for either Driven / Despair or Claim / Fame. Have you looked at Driven / Despair or Appeal / Authority at all? I posted an update and I was hoping you could take a look at it and give me your insight as your deck is also very well built.

Hi there! I have a Jund Hapatra deck as well on here, and I never considered putting Blazing Volley in. That's a ton of insect tokens if SSM and Nest are out, very interesting. Thank you for sharing this, it gave me some new ideas for my deck.

Do you feel like this deck can perform competitively, or do you feel like it's just for FNM and casual play?

Thank you for the upvote on my Hapatra deck, it's greatly appreciated. :)

I think you need to add some haste to the deck. One of the main reasons for running Red in any format is the low CMC cards with haste. I have a mono red deck for Standard as well, perhaps you could take some things from it and add it in to here!

I would recommend adding in Lathnu Hellion somewhere. Attack with him twice, and then fling him at your opponent for 4 extra damage before he dies anyways. I see you have Bloodlust Inciter which does help with haste, but if he gets removed then your haste is gone. I would recommend running Village Messenger  Flip, as it is a 1/1 with haste which turns in to a 2/2 with menace. You could also run Bomat Courier to help get Hazoret on the battlefield quicker, as it will discard cards for you. Also kick Hazoret up to a 2x instead of a 1x.

My mono-red deck. :)

I was looking for a flash deck and all I've found are the U/W ones which are kind of pricey for me because I'm fairly budget, and then I came across this deck! Luckily for me I already have 4x Aether Hub, Lumbering Falls and Botanical Sanctum so this deck costs like $30 for me.

I'm definitely going to try this out and see what I can improve on if anything. I love flash decks, and Simic is one of my favorite colors. Thank you for making this.
