Sweet deck but no ramp?

Simian Spirit Guide and a few Pyretic Ritual would be good.

Hey!

First off welcome back to modern, it's been a while I see and yeah... things haven't been too kind to Skred Red, first off I will say that the current lists are likely temur now, here is an example:

https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/modern-temur-midrange-165516#paperTEMUR MIDRANGE

That's just to give you an idea of where snow as an archetype has gone nowadays but let's talk about classic skred red. Basically you want to get yourself 4 Arcum's Astrolabe right away, the card quite frankly is broken, it replaces itself and ups your skred snow count right away. Here is a list from MTUgin that I am a fan of:

MTUgin's Deck

Lands

2 Frostwalk Bastion

2 Scrying Sheets

18 Snow-Covered Mountain

Creatures

2 Eternal Scourge

2 Seasoned Pyromancer

1 Hazoret the Fervent

2 Stormbreath Dragon

Planeswalkers

1 Chandra, Acolyte of Flame

2 Chandra, Torch of Defiance

2 Koth of the Hammer

Spells

4 Lightning Bolt

4 Skred

3 Anger of the Gods

Artifacts

3 Relic of Progenitus

4 Arcum's Astrolabe

4 Mind Stone

1 Ratchet Bomb

Enchantments

3 Blood Moon

Sideboard

2 Goblin Rabblemaster

3 Simian Spirit Guide

2 Chandra, Awakened Inferno

2 Shattering Spree

2 Pillage

2 Pithing Needle

2 Dragon's Claw

That list can use a lot of work, for example I think Blast Zone is likely just better than the ratchet bomb, and another little Chandra could be played, but it should give you something to work from. Skred right now can be a little weird, Primeval Titan decks are very good right now meaning being the Blood Moon deck isn't a bad place to be, but you really do lack any meaningful sideboard cards. I'd probably cut the SSG's for Damping Sphere which is also good against titan and storm. If your meta turns out to be a ton of titan you should be decently positioned otherwise one of skred's biggest problems in this day and age is what is becoming the end all and be all of the modern format and that is game actions per turn. Skred has a very low count on this and thus is inherently behind decks like amulet or urza which are doing many things a turn. Now, again Blood Moon can just win games but it is a concern. The temur build solves this problem some but is a very different deck.

As for having to buy new cards, its a reality all us modern players have had to face, 2019 produced a LOT of staple cards: Wrenn and Six, Teferi, Time Raveler, Urza, Lord High Artificer, Arcum's Astrolabe, and Oko, Thief of Crowns to name a few. In a way Skred has a lot less than most decks so there is that to look forward to I guess. My advice to you though is just cast moon, you can update as you go, moon will steal you games while you do. If I were you I would prioritise the Chandra's and Seasoned Pyromancer both seem good here. Let me know what your meta looks like I'd be happy to help you out with a sideboard!

Good draws!

MindAblaze You got them all, but, I don't think you adequately explained the Rube Goldbergness of the Borborygmos Enraged combo: You Goryo's Vengeance a Griselbrand, then funnel all your life through it to draw cards (hopefully finding a Nourishing Shoal or two along the way), then exile a Simian Spirit Guide and discard a Borborygmos Enraged to pay for a Lightning Axe (to your own Griselbrand if necessary), and exile another 2 Spirit Guides to pay for a Manamorphose to pay for another Goryo's Vengeance on the Borborygmos Enraged you just discarded, then activate his ability enough times to kill the opponent.

This combo still goes 5-0 sometimes.

The last Skred lists I have seen all play a playset of:

Ensnaring Bridge, Chalice of the Void, Blood Moon Simian Spirit Guide, Desperate Ritual along with varying numbers of Pyretic Ritual. They usualy have the bulk of board wipes in the side, and have Goblin Rabblemaster in the three drop creature slot.

All this information is all wrong if mono-red-prison and Skred have recently seperated into different decks :)

Simian Spirit Guide is actually better than Lotus Petal in a monored deck.

Completely looked over the exiling effect of Simian Spirit Guide , was thinking discard this whole time. that blows.

Any new cards catching your eye? Was thinking as for drawing and/or discarding you have: Thrill of Possibility which is similar to Night's Whisper without the loss of life, also allowing you to dump a piece such as Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker .

I noticed Funeral Rites which seems to be the offspring if Night's Whisper and Ransack the Lab had a kid. You'd get Funeral Rites lol just some cards I noticed that might be replacements or even additions.

Thanks Bad_Dog,

Your right, Simian Spirit Guide doesn't seem right then. Going to sub him back out for interaction cards.
