But I mean you could totally take a couple out for either Viridian Claw or Sword of Vengeance, because first strike and deathtouch also provides a good defense against trample and pretty much anything else

I personally think Tower Defense is a pretty good idea because it gives more survivability to your creatures at a low cost. Some decks might swing at you with a large creature with trample. They probably know it will die but think it's worth it because of the trample damage. Tower Defense is just good in general against creatures with trample because it gives your deathtouch creature the ability to live another turn and kill another creature. Having 4 in the deck will provide a much better defense and keep your enemies from attacking.

Nah you're right to keep it cheaper. But Snake Umbra has the totem armor effect too. Which means even if you put it on Typhoid Rats and attack, you'll likely get to draw a card, and even if they block with a creature the totem effect gives the rats an extra life so it lets you kill an enemy creature without your rats dying too

I always love seeing low budget, fun, casual decks. This one seems really good and hilarious and probably infuriating to play against which is a plus lol. Also I second Viridian Longbow because it allows any of your creatures to destroy huge creatures that might have trample before they get to attack. Additionally, I would recommend maybe adding in Sixth Sense or Snake Umbra so you can force your opponent to block or get punished by letting you draw a card. Plus since all your stuff is very low cost, you'll need card draw because you'll play out your hand by like turn 4. Snake Umbra also gives your creature a second life which is really helpful.

So wait how does redirection in other cases work? Are you able to target one creature with a spell and then redirect it to a different creature? Or even cast a spell on one player and then redirect it onto a different player, making them unable to cancel it? I was unaware that you were able to redirect any damage in general without using a card like Redirect

So I read an article which says you have to target the player with Shock but then before it resolves you may choose to redirect it to a planeswalker since you can't actually target this. Is there an explanation for this or is it just a rule that planeswalkers have. Also how would that effect CancelFor example if my opponent says "I'm targeting you with Shock" and I say "Okay I have 20 life I can easily take the 2 damage." But then he redirects the damage to my planeswalker which kills it. After he states the redirection, do I still have the ability to Cancel it to save my planeswalker or did the damage resolve when I told him that I would just take the 2 damage.

If this deck is all red, why bother putting in Arid Mesa and Wooded Foothills? I might be missing something, but wouldn't it be just as effective to replace those 7 cards with Mountain? That would take off an entire $150 from just those 7 cards alone, making the deck around $40-$50. You could even tag it as budget which would interest more fun, casual players, which is what it seems like this deck was made for.

Interesting so would that also mean that a 5/5 trample would deal all 5 damage to the player even if it was blocked by a 1/1 who sacrificed itself, since it's essentially blocked by something with 0 toughness?

Ok but wait if there is no time between dying and graveyard then how are people able to block a bigger creature with like a 1/1 and then sacrifice it after it dies to gain an additional effect like dealing damage with Barrage of Expendables? I guess I'm just confused with all the steps of the combat phase.

So, is a creature able to tap and use an ability right after it's toughness hits 0?
Here's the scenario... is it possible to use Twisted Image on Tree of Perdition to make the toughness equal 0, and then tap Tree of Perdition to make the opponent lose the game before the Tree hits the graveyard?
