Icbrgr on Mono-Red answer for Stony silence?

@DragonSliver9001 I think you may be confusing colors with archetypes/strategies. Skred Red isn't a Burn/RDW deck running 16-18 mountain using Lightning Bolt/Goblin Guide to get the opponents life total to 0 ASAP.

Although its a Mono-Red deck that likes Lightning Bolt; Skred is more on the Control/Prison spectrum of Magic. They have 22 or more lands as well as mana rocks/accelerators and have 5 drop finishers like Batterskull/Stormbreath Dragon + Planswalkers. To achieve this endgame strategy Skred decks focus on restricting and denying the opponent's resources or actions via removal and mana deprivation. Scrying Sheets/Artifacts used at End of the opponents turn to dig deeper into the deck for answers/finishers are certainly welcome.

@MagicMarc I do not have the intention to remove any of the artifacts at this time. T2 Mind Stone sets up a T3 Koth of the Hammer as well as help pay for other generic costs so my untapped mountains can be used to pay for other spells, and then replaces itself in the late game if needed... Relic of Progenitus is great against so many different decks having any graveyard synergies/values and at its worst replaces itself... Pyrite Spellbomb is the least exciting IMO however; the options for an additional 2 damage here and there is nice and if needed replaces itself.

As far as Metalcraft in this deck is concerned; its honestly more of a gimmick than anything.... Galvanic Blast vs Burst Lightning or Kuldotha Phoenix vs Stormbreath Dragon... there are arguments to be made either way in both cases but I personally just found the metalcraft skred sub-theme to just be my own personal touch to an otherwise known/solved/tried and true deck.

The bomb and relic are for metalcraft counts. If you plan on replacing them, you would need new artifacts to replace them. If you replace them with burn spells then you should probably replace Galvanic Blast as well if there is a better burn card than it without the metalcraft. Stuff like Burst Lightning or Skewer the Critics, etc.

Love this deck, it’s so fast and simple. How about Galvanic Blast? Might be a good addition here. And maybe Frogmite, Cranial Plating, Memnite, Welding Jar? (Not budget)

In your maybe board Galvanic Blast looks a bit strange. Did you know it can't target players?

That seems very well balanced, I really like that a lot!

Chandra's Sprites

Creature - Elemental


At the beginning of your endstep, sacrifice Chandra's Sprites, when you do, create a 1/1 red Elemental creature token with "Sacrifice this creature at the beginning of your endstep."


I want a narrow spell that's better than a staple, like Galvanic Blast

Thanks for the input, amicdeep! The counter spell recommendations are great. I'll put these in for sure. Probably won't play Arcum's Astrolabe since I don't want to play snow covered lands. Galvanic Blast could be an option in the future, but I feel like I don't need the burn/removal at this point.

Any recommendations for alternatives to Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp?

amicdeep on Ensoul Aggro

i recommend Metallic Rebuke and Stubborn Denial over the other counter spells.

also a fan of Arcum's Astrolabe as it makes the mana fixing a lot easier and provides a solid ensoul target.

lastly Galvanic Blast helps alot with reach

So, here's what I'm thinking:

Spreading Seas

Pyroclasm(2 copies or so)

Fatal Push(duh)

Lightning Bolt(duh)

Galvanic Blast

Aether Spellbomb

Necrogen Spellbomb and Scroll of Griselbrand

Nihil Spellbomb

Seal of Fire

Seal of Removal

Pyrite Spellbomb

Some Signets

Maybe Duress

Lantern of Insight and the mill friends, specifically Ghoulcaller's Bell

Thought Scour for consistency

Artificer's Intuition is a literal Survival of the Fittest here.

Whir of Invention

Ratchet Bomb because repeatable specified wraths is fun.

Shrine of Burning Rage and Shrine of Loyal Legions might be interested but their value is dubious.

Grave Peril can also control the board.

Locket of Yesterdays can help reduce mana costs of reanimating spellbombs.

I wonder if I can cast Lotus Bloom from my yard or if Lurrus of the Dream-Den doesn't allow that.

Os Mox Tantalite worth running?

Pithing Needle seems great.

Renegade Map for land draw?
