    Red Deck Wins

    Post  jdoucette24 on Thu Apr 29, 2010 3:24 pm

    I figured i would start this thread as Chingsung said he was going to play the deck. I think this is the way RDW should look right now

    4 goblin guide
    4 geopede
    4 karazan dragonlord
    4 bushwhacker
    4 hells thunder

    4 bolt
    4 searing blaze
    4 staggershock
    4 devasting summons

    12 mountains
    4 tarn
    4 mesa
    4 teetering peaks

    I think that Smoldering Spires might be better than Teetering Peaks in this list. Without the trampling pseudoburn of hellspark and ball lightning, I'd rather go around a Thrinax rather than plow into it and turn it into additional chump blockers.

    dragonlord and summons don't belong in the same deck imho.

    kiln fiend is more in the all out kill by turn 4/5 mindset..

    bolt you, my 4/2 kills your wall

    the deck needs black or will just flat out roll over to firewalkers.

    Um, no. Kor Firewalker is the stone nut against red. I promise. Every single time someone played one against me at the PT I wanted to shoot myself.

    This deck blows. I don't know why we're even talking about it.

    I tested PV's version and hated it. Even cutting dragonlord for more burn this deck just doesn't feel anywhere near good enough. What are the supposed good matchups? It loses to UW, loses to Jund, it does wreck time sieve and polymorph I guess.
