Use flame of Keld bc you can combo with Light up the Stage to start next turn with a 5 card hand. You run out of cards fast anyway. If you run a few bomat, you can crack it after Keld to start with an even bigger hand. I have been able to run 16 land without missing drops with the deck irl.

Man it was weird when i craft my first mono red using cacaver and a bunch of 1/1 and win so many matches, I just eat control and late deck for breakfast, now i know that mono red is quite a popular deck set. Though they are quite draw dependent and if you lose card advantage and still cant win, you most certainly lost the match.

Before I tried Mono Red I was Gold tier 4 in Ranked. By the end of the day, after trying a Mono Red burn deck, I was one win away from Platinum before I started losing, again. I'm still in Gold tier 1 after a couple of days, still just waiting for another good winning streak to put me in platinum before the month is over.

I hate red decks. Every Sunday, when u can get the 3 boosters with 15 wins, EVERYBODY is playing red, and i wanna kill them all By the way in your sideboard i'd put 2 "The immortal sun", awesome card that ruin every planeswalker decks and make u draw 1 more card/turn, boost all your creatures and lower your spell mana cost, perfect here. PS: never keep a hand with only one land, even if u play fast decks==> mulligan

Hi, new player here. So when I spend my gold on packs, are there any packs that are worth it more so than others? Or does it entirely depend on what sort of deck I am trying to build?
Lomiauz (1 month ago)
MetalheadRob Redbar Never spend gold on sigle packs, save at least 5k gold and play draft mode, that way you will earn gems (depending on your luck/skill) by winning on those drafts. Use those gems to play the other draft mode. Rinse and repeat every week. You will eventualy complete your desire deck by spending wild cards to craft whatever cards you need.

Aaron R (2 months ago)
Always kinda makes me chuckle how 70% of MTG is $$$, 20% luck, and like 10% skill. You need the money to just let the deck win for you, you may need some luck sometimes, and you need to have a basic understanding of the game. Pull out your credit cards and start playing the most grotesque p2w cardgame in existence.
Nathan Jones (2 months ago)
That's called a tcg. Every TCG is P2W.
Evan Page (2 months ago)
Started playing a week ago, built this as my first deck. No regrets. Unless you come up against someone that knows what they are doing you pretty much just faceroll them. Great for smashing through matches to build up gold / wildcards.
Eiirikafe (2 months ago)
You're an expansion out of date my friend. Several iterations of RDW with WAR is using Chandra, Fire Artisan instead of Experimental Frenzy because she's arguably more consistent

I want to thank you for your drafting videos. I could not win a game at all in this ranked stuff because of how bad I was drafting. I followed the advice that you made in your other video and was able to make it to win 4 or 5 multiple times. I can say it helped alot as I have been playing for like a week. Thank you!

Whats the white weenie deck?
whitephoenix64 (3 months ago)
these "red deck wins" pieces of crap are decks for stupid folks. unoriginal, boring and taking advantage of the strange opening hand rules of arena. Folks use 13 lands in the best of one . If you can`t brew your own just cram in every cheap red spell you can. ohhhh should I use experimental frenzy or risk factor? I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Dude i tried that build. however i find it kind of too strong. It is interesting to try it but for me its not fun rushing and winning within 3-5 rounds. I started magic a few days ago again. Last time i played was 13 years ago. Apperently nowdays those rushing builds are fairly common which makes me sad. back in the good old days a match took between 30 and 60 minutes.

The devs who did the programming for the probability of drawing a land each round are useless. No matter what land to spell ratio you make a deck it's consistently so far of any proper probability result its sickening. They need to hire the guys who do the programming for gambling machines to show them how to do probability properly.

Xzight (4 months ago)
that's not really true. Mono-red, mono-white, and mono-blue are some of the strongest decks out there right now. I got to mythic in a few days with mono white.

Murdock Berk (4 months ago)
Mine is essentially the same, but I run 4 electrostatic field main deck over chainwhirler, 2 risk factor, and 4 flame of keld over 4 mountains. Flame of keld 3rd trigger with electrostatic field and any burn spell represents 7-8 damage at least, more if you trigger spectacle before casting a skewer. I run Warlord's Fury in the last two slots, sideboard all 4 lava coil. Also run 2 Response//Resurgence in sideboard because Response is a clean way to kill Lyra Dawnbringer.

Negaflame (5 months ago)
talking shit about unmored ego litteraly sound like he dosent understand the game.
massive media (5 months ago)
You screwed up by not waiting to play risk factor.. Any chance to burn your opponent you should have took.. You could have summon Viashino pyromancer then play skewer the critics.. Next turn you drew a land.. But you would have had the upper hand you could have dumped that card for the jump start cost of risk factor and your opponent would have had no choice but to let you draw....
Grant Moon (5 months ago)
Try X4 Tin Street Dodger instead of Shock
ElBizaro (5 months ago)
Unmoored Ego is pretty bomb against any net deck. If you they need a particular card, even a basic land, you can deal with them early to mid game. It's a fair version of surgical extraction.
Phill O'Donnell (5 months ago)
There's one other instance it's a great card - Gaea's Blessing negation when you're running a mill deck.
Chueko Loyo (5 months ago)
Aside from the annoying exagerated expressions, you keep self congratulating yourself without explaining what youre doing (mainly talking about the sideboard). It either means you dont know what youre doing or are extremely confusing on purpose.
mccluskeyp (5 months ago)
Light Up the Stage by itself is NOT powerful enough to make up for cutting Experimental Frenzy. Frenzy represents lots of card draw every turn while Light Up the Stage is a one-off. This is why the actual good RDW that use Light Up the Stage without Experimental Frenzy are almost combo decks in the sense that they use Guttersnipe and Electrostatic Field with Steam Kin, Light Up the Stage, and Tormenting Voice to generate huge amounts of damage and mana. You are fooling yourself into thinking putting in cool new cards automatically improves the deck so much that you can cut the core of RDW without drastically changing your game plan. At 9:40 what you say about running out of cards is a great example.
mccluskeyp (5 months ago)
@ElBizaro the details you are describing are not on point with what I was discussing. We are talking past each other. Best of luck to you if all you use for your RDW card advantage is Light Up the Stage.
ElBizaro (5 months ago)
From my understanding, you're comparing the card advantage of it to something like Shamanic Revalation or Risk Factor, when you aren't looking at it like what it is, a cantrip. The reason why it's good is because it's one of the only red "draws" that nets you cards (unlike Goblin Lore, Magmatic Insight, Cathardic Reunion, etc.), but at a competitive mana cost. It also cannot be disrupted with duress, thoughtseize, inquisition, etc., which normally kills red's tempo.
mccluskeyp (5 months ago)
@ElBizaro Four copies of Light Up the Stage do not generate enough card advantage by themselves. You have to include other card draw/advantage mechanics in your RDW or you will run out of gas. That is what my other posts were saying. Do you understand what I'm trying to say?
ElBizaro (5 months ago)
Light up the stage gives you as much card advantage as faithless looting, without the discard. It's a 2 for 1, which red needed desperately.
mccluskeyp (5 months ago)
@ElBizaro I know that you can play them together. The problem is when you chose to play Light Up the Stage without also playing Frenzy (or other card draw such as Crash Through, Warlord's Fury, and Tormenting Voice). If all you play is Light Up the Stage, you can't generate enough card advantage.
james coulson (5 months ago)
such a cancer Deck, wish they would banned every card in that garbage Deck. IF U SUCK AT MAGIC PLAY MONO RED.
Chueko Loyo (5 months ago)
I dont know if its because of the arena meta but i went from being a black color lover to a red boy while playing arena these past few weeks, im new to the game as a whole so maybe black was never for me, but goddamn if aggro isnt fun, i specially love boros decks, theres something about racing against your opponent that makes the game really fun.
Lucavi Lorell (5 months ago)
Good content, but man I wish he wouldn't eat while he plays. I miss half of what he says because I'm always having to mute him. :(
@Matija Vuk 'gtfo you overly demanding crybaby, jesus... so mad reading comments like this...'
Lucavi Lorell (4 months ago)
@Matija Vuk Okay what I just said was a bit passive aggressive, I apologize for that. In sincerity though, why should it upset you? What I offered was constructive criticism, not a complaint. I understand the issue is with me, and not with him. I'm the one who can't handle the sounds due to a condition I have. I'm in the minority. That said, I still have a desire to be able to listen to him without that being a factor because I enjoy his content. I voiced this desire, not as a complaint, but as a hope. So, again, sorry for being passive aggressive, and I realize the issue here is with me, but if this truly got you mad and/or upset, I think you may also have an issue you may want to look into. That's not a slight towards you, just genuine advice out of a desire to help. Wish you the best, sorry again.
Lucavi Lorell (4 months ago)
@Matija Vuk Umm, get over it? It's just like my opinion man. But in all seriousness, you do realize the hypocrisy of your statement right? I mean, are you trying to be funny or are you just not very self aware?

Can someone explain to me why he waits to play creatures until after he attacks? He mentioned something about spells but I'm confused. Just started playing a month ago.
jerodast (5 months ago)
It's partly bluffing and partly the principle of waiting as long as possible to do anything so you have the most information about the game before you make your own plays. A lot of times it's pointless and kind of bugs the hell out of me, but many veterans do it just to maintain the habit for when it matters. Of course sometimes this habit means they make foolish plays where playing a card out earlier would've actually been a better move :P

You miss played at 1:11:30 you could of attacks if no block then double skewer the critics.
71chevy0330 (5 months ago)
@jerodast thank you for the reply and I forgot it had first stike.
jerodast (5 months ago)
I mean, it was a misplay to just waste a 3 mana Skewer for no reason. But, there was really no good play at all. You say "if no block" but opponent is guaranteed to block one - the angel has first strike and lifelink. The only question is whether it's worth it to lose a creature and both skewers and give opponent 5 life back in order to kill the angel. Either way game is probably over.

No
Michael Moormann (5 months ago)
Your opinion on Unmoored Ego is questionable. Of course its no maindeck material, but an incredible sb choice and worth having 2 copies. Like all extraction effects it generates card disadvantage yeah, but wins on the spot vs any Nexus control and Sultai (deck sucks without krasis) and significantly increases your chances vs Dimir/Esper/Jeskai. Plus it hits some rogue strategies like Arclight Izzet. To be precise, it targets specifically the matchups which Dimir and Esper usually struggle with.
Animatter (5 months ago)
Mono red is broken. It shouldn't have easy reach-refill like light up the stage/risk factor/frenzy, the risk of playing red should be running out of steam. It should be in general Red < Midrange < Control < Red (on average), now it's a dumb coin flip. It'd be reasonably easy to kill the RDW with sideboard, if not for the primary Bo1 mode of mtg arena. No incentive to play constructed vs 60%+ of RDW, since even winning against it is not fun.

do you still have to buy digital packs to get online cards, or can you just use whatever you want? I'm almost certain you still have to buy them but hoping you can at least use whatever in non ranked online play.
Mike Snow (2 months ago)
Yeah, its horribly expensive for a video game. Someone worked on one "set" for example let's just say Ixalan it will cost over £1000 to get all the cards just for that set. It's extremely grindy. It's a joke. Pretty much a gambling machine, except you don't get real money back. One of the game modes cost £10 for one set of 7 games. It's genuinely one of the worst video games out there for microtransactions but everyone defends it lol
jerodast (5 months ago)
It wouldn't be a CCG without having to painstakingly collect cards. Remember, Magic invented the genre. Gotta stay true to their roots :P
Patrick R (5 months ago)
yeah. you can get free cards/pre constructed decks here and there as rewards for winning matches but buying digital packs is the only real way to get cards en masse
mtg holic (5 months ago)
Aggressive decks, whether you like it or not, will always exist. It's the paper-rock-scissors for mtg > aggro-control-midrange. If you're complaining at this, you're failing at basic-level magic. TL:DR :GitGud Scrubs.
Sam Fraser (1 month ago)
And now WotC has removed even that answer by printing Tibald, Rakish Instigator.
Uguu Cthulhu (5 months ago)
@Tom Peterson Counter? Probably not. But that's only one avenue. I've personally been playing a Mardu deck that pretty reliably outheals mono-red. It struggles against hard control, sure, but that's part of the enjoyment, learning just how to balance it.
mtg holic (5 months ago)
@Tom Peterson bad game design fail? How long have you been playing the game lol. You cant counter 50 1-2mana burn, but you can gain life. For god's sake they even print absorb. It's like countering 2 burn spells. RDW has a lot of problem against esper.
Tom Peterson (5 months ago)
Bad game design is the true fail here. How do you get good exactly? You can't counter 50 1-2 mana burns.
Ferrous Oxcide (5 months ago)
I am so sick of seeing this deck. Its skilless too fast to counter for most decks and 2 out of 3 netdeckers are playing it atm.
BielCostta (5 months ago)
Third round, and the opponent is less than half alive. I will not go into the merit if the mono red is "brain" deck thing or not. He is very aggressive. I love Magic, but every update looks like they increase the aggressiveness of the mono red, Honestly, play a game in which you put three lands in play and the next turn you lose ... I know, every game has aggro decks, but the magic ones are monstrous, one day I think it's out of control.
Peter Hansmann (3 months ago)
everyone want's to play their decks, but control and aggro completely destroy the fun of the game for one player. Aint playing my deck if I'm dead turn 4 or if everything gets countered/removed. At some point people just won't play mtg cuz it's getting boring really fast this way

@Big Stick ​ The game is a time investment, but it's a time investment IN PLAYING MAGIC, not waiting! Honestly, I cannot fucking believe Sean just dropped out of the game client to make his announcement about his fucking "festival". In the middle of his turn. Which he prefaced with "I think we can make this announcement now, as long as we do it slowly and carefully." Holy shit. That is beyond the pale even for him. If I was a community manager for WotC and I saw this stream I would honestly suspend him. Absolutely terrible sportsmanship.

Wendy Haas (5 months ago)
They should have changed unmoored ego so that YOU could draw cards for any that you exile from the opponents hand, then it would be a great card. Right now it only shines when you're up against a mill deck with Gaea's blessing, Nexus or Teferi.
Dust (5 months ago)
damn deck wins the game in 4-6 turns, its a well oiled machine that cuts to the chase. Every time i come across this deck or a nexus i just wanna pull my hair out. you just gotta hope to draw a good curve.. if not.. just concede haha
Dust (5 months ago)
@Ironocy oh yeah i'm getting better at smashing control most of the time, just biding my time, the nexus though ahh you don't have time, its either get your good cards negated or skip a turn and hope they spend there mana, despite there focus on ramping but you never know weather there in a rush or are playing it safe. I usually play a few different version's of vamps black white, one aggro, mid, and mid to long( bit of a jenk) but not.. there is synergy i swear, its just a little more mana intensive. but you get that. I'm thinking a few fountains or even some life gain on entry cards, i'm clearly to dependent on attacking for life gain and you know there just the main priority to aggro red. i think i need to build a nice mono white with heaps of life-gain on entry creatures. i tell you what blue white go's pretty well against this deck i just slapped together, what make it live against the red death is the absorb, despose//deploy (given you have board presence) and invoke the divine that's a good ench removal heal 100%. oh the endless possibilities.
Ironocy (5 months ago)
Certain matchups are a breeze for RDW but there are tough matchups too. Midrange > Aggro. Main deck lifegain, discard, and/or counters. Absorb, Wildgrowth Walker, Moment of Craving, Vraska's Contempt, and Fountain of Renewal are excellent cards vs RDW. Mono white with lifelink is brutal. RDW is a powerful deck but if it didn't exist then there would be nothing to keep nexus in check. Aggro > Control.
SombreroMonkey (5 months ago)
See, whenever i try play a deck like this, i always go up against people who just play token whit/green or green/black, so they just flood the board

2 words. Goblin Chainwhirler
Sasha I (5 months ago)
I think at the esper tokens game you should cut something for electrostatic and frenzy. if your creatures wont getting past them using burn on creatures is pretty bad sometimes
Jim Hopkins (5 months ago)
Unmoored Ego is actually an excellent anti-Nexus (or Wilderness Reclamation, or Teferi) SB card. Wanna make your control opponent cry?
Ironocy (5 months ago)
That's exactly what day9 said. Those decks usually only run 1 win con, i.e. Teferi, Reclamation, Nexus, Explosion. Take the 1 win con, win the game. That's the correct way to use Unmoored Ego and arguably its only purpose of existing.
I love lamp (5 months ago)
I run a version where i cut the firebrands and chainwhirlers for steamkins and electrostatics. It's a tad slower but the steamkins synergize so well with the fact that there are potentially 20 one drops with spectacle enabled, it's very easy to chain together a turn 3 or 4 win, and if you manage to get two steamkins on the board, your two drops pay for themselves and one drops actually give you mana to play them. I play the electrostatic over chainwhirler because the chainwhirler is a tad slow for the deck, and you're not trying to win with creatures. With 6 instants/sorceries the fields build up damage every turn and frequently are what put me over the edge just as im running out of cards. Can't quite decide whether i like frenzy or risk factor more, probably frenzy in this list.

Disagree on unmoored ego, yes it can replace cards lost in opponents hand but you don't have to take them. A hidden benefit of unmoored ego is it allows you to look at your opponents deck. In regards to cards in hand: exiling an opponents top tier cards forever in exchange for what is likely cmc lower or equal is still pretty good. Think of Unmoored Ego being a potential 4 for 1 exile card. The tricky part is knowing what card to name. I will concede unmoored ego is weaker against aggro decks and shines best against control.

Hmm the reason it's better against control is because they run fewer win cons, sometimes exactly 1. So it sounds like you're agreeing with him since that's the point he was making. Aggro runs redundant cards so it's pointless to run it against them. Your additional and less important point about it being a 3 mana Peek that doesn't cantrip doesn't hold water. Think about it, you pay 3 mana, lose net 1 card, your opponent loses net 0 cards, and you look at their hand. Objectively strictly worse Peek. It's card disadvantage. You should only play it for its ability to remove a deck's wincon. Any other reason and you're not playing it correctly. It's neat you get to also see their hand and deck but it should be mostly irrelevant since they probably conceded after you removed their only wincon. Especially in bo1. You do milk a little additional value in bo3. If it was also a cantrip then OK run it you both neither lose nor gain anything, you just basically time walk yourself unless playing it wins the game.

Even exiling 4 cards sucks because the payoff is incredibly slow. Up until the point they would've drawn all four of those cards, you aren't getting full value from the one card you played.

Yeah its good against control but against aggro it sucks.

Remove the chain whirlers, add electro static wall thingy. Thank me later.

Yes. There are fringe cases of course, where chain whirler is better. If you slam the wall on turn 2 and its not answered, the value should add up turn 3. If its still not answered you will just snowball.

Did you used to run Chainwhirler and now run electrostatic and it works better or what?
