boring noob deck same how mono blue

I really like double cast with risk factor. 5 mana draw 6 or deal 8 damage is pretty sweet
Simon M (8 days ago)
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.
Sean Crees (11 days ago)
I was thinking of going Nizzet, or drakes etc, then i watched this mono red deck poo on them and now i'm sad.

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.

I miss the old days without card lists like winners/meta decks 95% are just buying and copying stuff. It's the same in physical magic. That's why I like sealed and draft best.

Now I'm playing MTG Arena I want to learn ASAP. I found out that 2 coloured deks work better than mono. The more you'll play the more you'll learn!
Xzight (26 days 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.

honestly.. i played mtga for 15 years. but in the past few sets. i just dont have any fun at all. 8 spells for 1 mana that deals 3 dmg is just stupid ohh and 4x lightning strike for 2 mana. 6 of these 12 cards +a shock and you have lethal. its all total in you face. or its control until youre bored to death. and and 66% of the time your either mana screwed. or flooded. and 33% chance you have a decent rate of lands. found that stuff like healing grace is a decent tool vs mono red. but again dead card vs control.
Murdock Berk (1 month 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.

talking shit about unmored ego litteraly sound like he dosent understand the game.
massive media (1 month 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....

Try X4 Tin Street Dodger instead of Shock
ElBizaro (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
There's one other instance it's a great card - Gaea's Blessing negation when you're running a mill deck.
Chueko Loyo (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (21 days 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 (21 days 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 (1 month 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

+jerodast thank you for the reply and I forgot it had first stike.
jerodast (1 month 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.

Light up the Stage is the best current red card draw as of rn, change my mind.
Michael Moormann (1 month 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 (1 month 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.
Tray Carrot (1 month ago)
Moment of Craving Revitalize Wildgrowth Walker Spell Pierce Fountain of Renewal Moment of Triumph Dire fleet daredevil All very easy cards that are death sentences for the deck under 2 mana. I'm sorry you want to play durdle battlecruiser magic that ends with either Teferi or four 8/8 gates that cost 0 mana :(

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.

It wouldn't be a CCG without having to painstakingly collect cards. Remember, Magic invented the genre. Gotta stay true to their roots :P

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 (1 month 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.

+Tom Peterson you have no idea what game design is you imbecile. go kill yourself
Tray Carrot (1 month ago)
+Tom Peterson There aren't 50 burn spells. You just aren't playing basic interaction to beat the aggro matchup. Gimping their early plays (early blockers, shocks, pierces, small life gain) or stopping their hand refill are basically super free wins.
Uguu Cthulhu (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
Bad game design is the true fail here. How do you get good exactly? You can't counter 50 1-2 mana burns.

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 (1 month 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.

+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.
Patrick R (1 month ago)
+Big Stick lol I was mostly joking. Obviously you meant no one enjoyed those things. But also, not every game is an investment. I've had countless games under 10 minutes. I've also had plenty of matches at pre releases run out of time because the opponent is so slow. Or in day9 case, talking about his cats or some upcoming event lmao

Wendy Haas (1 month 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.
Tray Carrot (1 month ago)
Seems way too strong. No thanks
Dust (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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 (1 month 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
Sasha I (1 month 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 (1 month ago)
Unmoored Ego is actually an excellent anti-Nexus (or Wilderness Reclamation, or Teferi) SB card. Wanna make your control opponent cry?
Ironocy (1 month 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 (1 month 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.
Andrey Chaves León (1 month ago)
22:38 "Very clear blocks that are happening here". Well apparently not XD
Michael (1 month ago)
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.
Ironocy (1 month ago)
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.
HighLanderPony (1 month ago)
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.

Act of treason was really strong against Green stompy ghalta, and now its useful as finisher to remove Blocker+additional Attacker. Or end the Fight with gste collosus...

Bobby Z (1 month ago)
i've been running this deck non stop since the new set, risk factor is better main, e frenzy side, steamkin is better (slightly) than chainwhirler. if you slam 4x4 bolts, and play 20 lands, the decision becomes how many whirlers vs how many risk factors you play. frenzy in the main board is a tempting mistake. the deck usually wants to play more like a tempo deck instead of aggro, especially in the mirror. it often happens that you can cash in a steamkin and use the mana to cast 3 spells, which is brutal to most any deck currently on arena. sweet content, i especially like that naya deck you've been working on :)
Bobby Z (1 month ago)
+Ironocy not as much as i'd like, tho ;)
Ironocy (1 month ago)
My valuation exactly. Frenzy to the sb, Light up the Stage is better main. Some mixture of whirler and risk factor main. Fanatic is cluth for spectacle. Heavy burn = 20 lands + steam-kin. You're 100% correct! Grats, you win!
Bobby Z (1 month ago)
oh, and make sure to not cut firebrand. that little guy is great in a pinch to turn on spectacle shenannigans
Energy Core (1 month ago)
Imo this deck could use a mountain on the sideboard, because you often board up to a lot of three drops. Though we do have 4 one mana draw 2s
Energy Core (1 month ago)
+Ironocy That's very interesting input, thanks!
Ironocy (1 month ago)
Steam-kin acts as additional mana source to play 3 drops. It's already built into the deck. Just don't overdo it with 3 drops. Can't imagine a matchup where you would simultaneously need Act of Treason, Chainwhirler, Risk Factor, and Frenzy. They all have specific matchups and purposes.

Alexander Kolchev (1 month ago)
If you want to punish red decks, just run a white lifesteal deck (you can modify Eternal Thirst, cut all the black cards). I rarely loose to the red deck (maybe 1 out 4 games), and even climbed to platinum with this deck! Control decks are a problem, though, Immortal suns, Teferi, other pay to win cards are definetely a problem
Shankspeare (1 month ago)
I'd personally rather cut Experimental Frenzy over Risk Factor, having Frenzy and Light up the Stage seems like having too many eggs in the value basket, Risk Factor is multi-function as a draw/burn card. Also, if you do run Frenzy, I think it's worth continuing to run Steam-kin, it's synergy with Frenzy puts it over the edge.

More like starting a turn with light up the stage fizzles Frenzy

+Ironocy I ran snipe before in a Krenko deck. it was disgusting and a huge threat. can't imagine if I made a Snipe+ Field in a krenko goblin burn deck. I usually murder people with Goblin Grenade and Artillerize
Jman LPGuy (1 month ago)
​+Stephen Alley I used to run four snipes all the time in my krenko burn deck. incredibly strong in any draw and burn deck. Electro field is the same but in the form of a good defender from early aggro. Now use draw spells and cheap burn and whittle people down incredibly fast.

Snipe + Field seem good vs control. You could make an argument for Snipe in sideboard.

Guttersnipe feels way too slow for this deck. But I think the same about Chainwhirler and I'm sure he knows better than I do.

Is it best to use Exp Frenzy if you don't have Risk Factor's?
Ironocy (1 month ago)
Light up the Stage > Risk Factor > Experimental Frenzy. Add what you need starting left to right.

“Diagonal monkey” seems like a good name for the deck...and the people who play it.

The goblin is pretty slow thats why has been cut of many list instead we play the electroestatic field which is not easy to remove and his ofensive and defensive power is better (for best of one)

I have a list that abuses Steam-Kins mechanic by using the new spectacle effects on Light up the Stage and Skewer the Critics. You can just cycle that badboy and kill someone on turn 3.
Ironocy (1 month ago)
Does it run x4 Steam-Kin, x4 Light up the Stage, x4 Skewer? And all the other 1-2 mana burn spells? Maybe some wizards? If so, you're probably just running the same deck a lot of other burn players are running. I'd say on average we're all running maybe the same 53-54 cards, maybe more.

In this meta, unmoored ego t3 can simply win the game. When bo3 hits, it will make much less sense to main deck it, but as things stand I run two copies in Esper Control and I've never regretted it. So many decks scoop on resolution because they only have one real win condition (Nexus, Teferi, etc.).
Michael Moormann (1 month ago)
Esper already has a pretty good mono matchup due to revitalize, craving and absorb and depending on the build, bellyboy. However, you tend to struggle with sultai midrange and turbofog, thats why running ego in Bo1 is perfectly fine.
Ironocy (1 month ago)
Unmoored Ego me, take 4 burn spells. Thin my deck to more burn spells.
ArmoredNeko (1 month ago)
Good luck against all these mono-red running around--I played like 10 mono red in a row yesterday.

I just can't give up on guttersnipes ,I just love that card ,am I doomed ? :D
Ironocy (1 month ago)
They could be valuable in a control heavy meta. "Cool kill the snipe, I'll proc some triggers real quick."
arusepaburo (1 month ago)
yup, that card is and easy target, dies by almost anything

Unmoored Ego is exclusively a Nexus / Reclamation killer. Without their infinite turns, their deck slows down to be an absolutely garbage deck with too many draw spells
matte espo (1 month ago)
disagree with unmoored ego, if you play mill you MUST have this card and name gaea's blessing because that card makes it impossible to win

Also, as someone who enjoys playing that white tax card, forcing draws isn't even that bad.
Venator 232 (1 month ago)
+William Walton it isnt that good against aggro. So dunno. But drakes, gates, control etc. its very useful. Depends on the meta, If you should have it on your maindeck. But atm i dont think you should have it
matte espo (1 month ago)
agree i would start with 2 and side 2
William Walton (1 month ago)
I had a game where I was turbo milling my opponent with a hate deck and they had two blessings. Fortunately I had put Niv in as a backup plan / extra card draw. I am a big fan of Ego and main deck one in my Esper control. I played two cool Dimir Decks decks yesterday that both ran and used one. I think that as the meta settles it becomes easier to know what to pick and the value of Ego goes up.
Test 1212 (1 month ago)
also theres alot of decks in this meta that really only have one win condition namely nexus of fate of course in some matchups its a waste, but then thats why you play BO3 basically, no?
Test 1212 (1 month ago)
*straightforward*... what a nice way of saying stupid just play all cards in your hand and hope your opponent doesnt have any lifegain real straightforward
Venator 232 (1 month ago)
+Ironocy other decks require more Skill. Yeah the turns arent that hard in some Decks. *Hust* Nexus *hust*, but with Mono red you have 4 rounds to make a missplay. With other decks you have 10+ rounds. So yeah a noob can win like a pro with Mono red, but not with control
Ironocy (1 month ago)
+Test 1212 37:34 good job you proved why it takes skill to pilot the deck. In most matchups you use burn as direct damage but other times you don't. I doubt you could effectively discern when you do one or the other. Lifegain is the most obvious way to counter the strategy but other ways exist. Do you even know what they are?
Ironocy (1 month ago)
It's not stupid you are just ignorant. It requires as much skill as any other deck. Bet i could outplay you in the RDW mirror and cause you to rage quit as you blame it on RNG and other things you probably don't understand. Draw go decks like Nexus and turbo fog are just as mind numbing. Creature aggro decks are equally boring. Midrange board stall do nothing 2 hour snooze fests are just as bad. At least with rdw you can get in a bunch of games real fast.
Samuel Cassimiro (1 month ago)
On the other side, it takes real smart to run a bunch of counterspells, fog any creature that came through and ramp to infinity nexus. You have to be an absolute genius to run it
Venator 232 (1 month ago)
+The Codex but its braindead. If you have a Exam and you search in the Internet for the Text you need to translate, than your method can work, but it requires nothing for it. And thats Mono Red. The deck isnt stupid, but it gives no requirements for piloting it

+Ironocy "Even" is not one extreme swinging to another haha. Two wrongs != right!
Tray Carrot (1 month ago)
+Venator 232 I mean he easily could have killed you turn 5, so I doubt it was as easy and straightforward as you say.
Ironocy (1 month ago)
As a person that preserved years of blue and black always dominating, it's good to see red be so dominant for so many years. I'd say we're getting close to being even.
Venator 232 (1 month ago)
+HighLanderPony its only something you say. You played Pokemon? To explain that there. Legendary are strong, but you can win against them. But rayquaza was so op that the other who were op was a shit against him. Like jade belleren is op, but you can win against, and hes banned in some formats But black Lotus is too op, that you cant let someone play this Card in any format
HighLanderPony (1 month ago)
+Venator 232 Exactly... you don't know. Noone else knows either.
Logan Van Bibber (1 month ago)
Will you be playing more sultai midrange ? That deck seemed to have a lot of potential
Michael Balzano (1 month ago)
I loved his video on Sultai Midrange and it helped me climb in ladder recently haha so I second this!
