Let's stop praying for wheels and start making the draw happen!

-1 Temple of the False God +1 War Room .

You have plenty of mana here and a low-enough curve not to worry about needing the 2 CMC for the (bad) condition of TotFG. Go draw some cards!

-1 Dwarven Mine +1 Valakut Awakening  Flip

No seriously, go get more cards! Both of these can ETB tapped, and the upside of Awakening is WAY higher than Dwarven Mine. You'll be happy you're making this swap!

-1 Insult +1 Wheel of Misfortune

Go get more cards! Also, damage someone!

-1 Slagstorm +1 Valakut Exploration

Go get more cards AND damage someone, all in one turn!

-1 Fire Diamond +1 Hedron Archive (whichever you prefer)

Add some more mana to your pool and give yourself more mid and late-game cards!

-1 Burn from Within +1 Runaway Steam-Kin

I just love Steam-Kin in every mono-R deck that wants to cast a whole bunch of instants. Have fun with more explosive turns!

Suspence89 on Does Red/White Need to Have …

100% yes. White needs it more than red. There are really easy ways to expand the amount of viable effects both colors can utilize. Red for instance has been given many fantastic impulse draw effects such as Outpost Siege and Valakut Awakening  Flip that feel very red and carry very useful value in edh. White on the other hand is still relying on cards like Well of Lost Dreams or or the newly printed Cosmos Elixir to extract card draw off it's lifegain... Oh wait those are artifacts that any color can use. Yet another obvious neglect of white effects. That being said white and red together should pose sheer speed and pace on the fast end, and widespread destruction or dictation on the slow end. No color combo should become more narrow just because it "fits the bill"

Hey, for sure! I updated the list with my current competitive version.. Less jank but more wins. :'( Valakut Awakening  Flip is a solid addition.

FWIW, Knollspine Dragon has been much easier to setup for 4+ cards than I thought it'd be. That might be the next one to try for possible ramp options!

You're right about Mutavault unfortunately. Instead I'm gonna try Malakir Rebirth  Flip to see if I can more mileage out of that utility land spot. Valakut Awakening  Flip and Agadeem's Awakening  Flip are next on the list for testing.

FWIW I'm going to test Kolaghan's Command in favor of Bedevil to get some more flexibility in that removal spot. Same for Soul Shatter - it feels like so much value for 3 mana, I have no idea why it's a $0.25 card!

Have you ever tested Dragonspeaker Shaman? I'm wondering about it - that 2-mana cost reduction on a 3 CMC body just screams efficiency.

Also - how valuable has Ugin, the Ineffable been for you? I've been seriously considering it for the spot removal and draw but that six CMC is scaring me a bit.

Valakut Awakening  Flip is incredibly powerful. So are a few others, and they're all great to have in the toolbox.

I love these cards and the creativity of them, however I have limited them to one per deck, and didn't cut any lands for them. The only one that I'm running that will be a land more often than not is Ondu Inversion  Flip due to the high CMC and the chance that I don't want to hurt my own board with my Syr Gwyn deck lacking significant graveyard recursion.

Valakut Awakening  Flip and Malakir Rebirth  Flip I anticipate will be cast the vast majority of the time for me since they can come up clutch in their respective decks as spells.
