MONO RED PAUPER STAX

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • The idea is to make symmetrical land destruction favor me more and win by denying mana to my opponenets
  • Firewild Borderpost and Veinfire Borderpost are 1 CMC mana rocks that let me have enough mana for the whole game. They work well with Tremble , resulting only in your opponent losing a land
  • Crack the Earth most often forces the opponent to lose a land or the rare creature they slip in early. It also works well with Ichor Wellspring , giving you a nice 2 for 1 exchange.
  • The deck itself is lacking mana, so anything above 2 CMC is generally a no-go, so Keldon Halberdier is a perfect turn 1 creature that will close out the game fast while you blow up lands.
  • Atog and Kuldotha Rebirth are the chosen finishers because I am running 11 artifacts (15 including lands), so it's great synergy to get rid of extra borderposts or Ichor Wellspring s
  • The REMOVAL spells can be mixed in any proportions depending on your meta. However I suggest running no less than 3 Harvest Pyre . Land destruction is pure fuel for an opposing turn 3 Gurmag Angler .
  • Deck fares well against Mono Blue Delver, Tron, Aggro decks, affinity (after sideboarding, if you get them early). Elves are pretty hard unless you really pressure them and draw removal.
