Dang, this post made me have to go back and listen to Periphery’s second album again. Not a bad thing at all, mind you. Album’s a banger. :)
(The first and last songs on the album are titled Muramasa and Masemune, respectively.)

Skred Red has been pretty fun because it’s a red deck that doesn’t play like a red deck, and nobody ever knows how to play against it. Plus, there’s just tons of sneaky good synergy. Exiling Eternal Scourge to Chandra, Torch of Defiance ’s +1 to get the 2 damage and then casting it, using Koth of the Hammer ’s +1 as a ramp spell, tapping out for Mind Stone turn 2 and then using Dismember when your opponent lets his guard down and slams his best dude...I could just go on and on!
(Also, the new Chandra, Acolyte of Flame is stupid good in Skred Red as a 1-of and you should play it if you play Skred.)

This post is going to mark my hiatus from Magic. I’m going to be serving a mission for my church for the next two years of my life, and I’m setting aside all the things that don’t actively aid me in this endeavor. Magic is one of those things. I’ll be on Tappedout for one more week, but I’ll be heading out next Tuesday.
That’s not really what this post is about, though. I’m posting this as a thank you to the entire Tappedout community.
You guys are just the best.
Seriously. For the most part, this is probably one of the least toxic forum-type sites I’ve ever been on. Everyone seems to just be here to enjoy a hobby that they love, and it’s honestly really encouraging to know how tight-knit an online community can be. It’s been an absolute blast, and I hope everything continues to be great.
Thank you, and I’ll see y’all in two years!

Cool budget build! It’s a slight hit on the budget, but Spire of Industry is good in any artifact deck and isn’t too pricy.

If you want card draw in mono-red you can run Commune with Lava ; it works really well with Tron. The rituals are fine when they work but if you can’t find a Worldfire they’re really awkward. I might suggest running some mana rocks, like Boros Signet or something like that. Vexing Devil is only really good in Burn because it gives your opponents choices and 9 times out of 10 they’ll take the 4 damage. Flame Slash is decent anti-creature removal. I wouldn’t run any Evolving Wilds . They’re just too slow. I’d replace them with more mountains, or, if you’re feeling fancy, Ghost Quarter for the mirror-they’ll never see it coming!

Your sideboard looks legal now. I don’t think the Walls you have in are remotely playable. For aggro matchups you should be playing sweepers or spot-removal, especially when decks like Burn just go straight over them.
Mainly, I think your deck lacks a backup plan. If your opponent manages to Surgical Extraction after countering it, you can only win through incidental Electrostatic Field burn, and you will lose if you try that. You want some bigger threats here. If you’re on a budget, something like Drakuseth, Maw of Flames or even just a Banefire would be good as a backup.

Both Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast are not Modern-legal. For future reference, whenever you see the text blurb saying that your deck contains illegal cards, you can ask it to highlight those cards.
In regards to Modern-legal replacements, I’d offer Ricochet Trap as an anti-blue card. You should also run more board wipes, like Anger of the Gods , Pyroclasm , or, since you’re running Tron, All Is Dust . Dragon's Claw is also good sideboard material.

Actually, tapping down Emrakul, the Aeons Torn with Matsu-Tribe Sniper totally works. Emrakul has protection from colored spells. Once your sniper is on the battlefield, it no longer counts as a spell but is instead a permanent, and Emrakul’s protection no longer matters.

Sorry to hijack the thread, even for a moment. Spell Snare is quite good right now and I think most control decks ought to be running 1-2. Consider how many strategies at the moment center around 2-drops. Snare hits Stoneforge Mystic out of Stoneblade, Tarmogoyf and Wrenn and Six out of Jund (with W6 being the higher priority; I think it may be stealthily too good for Modern), both halves of the Thopter Foundry / Sword of the Meek combo out of Whirza (admittedly they tutor for the combo most of the time, but Spell Snare has also saved my butt a number of times in this case), and even some of the relevant Burn spells in the matchup (countering Eidolon of the Great Revel will save your life). If you control players aren’t running Spell Snare , why not? It’s great. Run it!!
Okay, semi-topical rant over. In regards to your brew, I would say that you could use some more play against Burn. In general, I would say don’t play counterspells and targeted discard in the same deck because it makes your gameplan awkward. Stick to either instant or sorcery speed control. There’s a guy named Corey Burkhart who’s a phenomenal Grixis player. I’d imagine he’s probably playing some form of Grixis Control, so I would look at how he sideboards and what his removal ratio is like.
I think that’s about all I got. Hope this helped in some way!

Considering how prevalent W/U Stoneblade, Burn, and all the various creature decks of Modern are atm, I think Collective Brutality is your friend. I know it’s awkward because Dreadhorde Arcanist can’t flash it back with base power 1, but it’s pretty absurd right now. I wouldn’t take out your Bobs because they’re still quite good. Dragon's Claw is probably good for the sideboard. If you’re not running Soul-Scar Mage , he turns Burn into actual removal. Finally, Shadowfeed is good incidental gy hate with anti-Burn attached. You might run 1-2 in the main if you expect to see lots of Burn.

Yup, that one! Thanks so much for linking it; posting from a phone is the worst

Rugt the Unyielding
Legendary Creature - Minotaur Barbarian
If a Minotaur you control would deal damage to another player, that Minotaur does that much damage plus 1.
If an opponent controls a Planeswalker or God, Rugt has double strike.
Create a Legendary creature or planeswalker that comes from the plane of Belenon.
(Belenon was depicted on a few Planechase cards, notably Windriddle Palace. I would link the planechase card but I don’t know how to.)
