Said on Mono Red Don't ......

TheGreatSlob It's a hedge against Surgical Extraction/Meddling Mage, etc. At the point you have 4 mana, you shouldn't need to splice. You also don't want extra cards in your hand anyway because of Ensnaring Bridge. Avoiding something bad happening like them locking you off all 4 of your rituals is statistically more important/relevant than the additional ramping your suggestion would allow.

APPLE01DOJ Thanks, but I respectfully disagree with all 3 of those cards. While your deck plays several of the same cards as this, the two strategies are very different. Your deck is attempting to pressure the opponents life total, while mine is not. Yes, burning them is still my win-con, but I do it way later. Lightning Bolt is wrong because it is a nom-bo with Chalice on 1 (something this deck frequently relies on). Additionally, it is only a removal spell, since I'm not going after their life total until a point in the game where a 3 point reach means next to nothing. A sweeper should end up accomplishing more. Faithless Looting would also be way too greedy. Even the flashback gets countered by Chalice on 1. Risk Factor realistically only says pay 3 to deal 4 damage to opponent. Again, I'm not going after their life, so I'm not able to force them in to letting me draw 3 cards. I could maybe see cutting 1 Magus. That and 1 Mountain are about the only workable slots.
