Spells - 10 3 Thrash // Threat - removal, answer to planeswalkers, creature 4 Rhythm of the Wild - reason to play red over other colors, hoses counter spells. 3 Vivien Reid - maybe 4 ferox instead of Sunder Shaman then +3 Beast Whisperer?
Sideboard 4 Nullhide Ferox - punish grixis/discard decks, take out spells from main, Vivien/thrash? 4 Deathgorge Scavenger - prevent sultai from recasting cards and PHXs from coming back. Bring in against Mono Red? 3 Fiery Cannonade - tokens, decks that go wide, white weenie 3 Find // Finality - get cards back that have been killed, could we splash black to use finality? 1 ?
So Pelt Collector or thorn Lieutenant? Im taking out Sunder Shaman for sure, but in its place, Steel leaf Champion or Nullhide Ferox? If Ferox do I take out Vivien for like Beast Whisperer?
You don't like Rekindling Pheonix over the other 4 drops? Also do you really want4 Rhythym of the wilds? Seems like you wouldn't want more then one per game usually. Taking 2 turns off of playing creatures isn't something we want to do. Seems like 3 mb would be better.

To be honest I havent played the deck enough to know how many I would want. I figure if I wanted it at all I want 4 to try and ensure I can play it T2/3.
I dont have rekindling Phoenix in paper so its easy not to include. I am really drawn to casting Ghalta with Rhythm in play. I am also attracted to playing Kraul Harpooner with rhythm in play as well, like post sweeper, like harpooner into Ghalta and swing for 20, that sounds so sexy.
If I were to play that style enough to decide that it totally sucks then I might try the Monsters build with PHX and dragon.
Gotcha. The idea of winning with a haste 12/12 trample is sexy indeed.
Been heavily modifying the deck lately as I'm focusing on bo1 Arena game right now. Despite me missing bo3, it's much easier to build and play a bo1. Anyone else out there playing bo1 decks right now?
I'm going to try out stony strength. My goal is to beat the red tide. With bo1, you must lower the curve/make every card count when it comes down. Anyway, stony strength is my way to trounce mono-red. I play so many games against them; that's also why I include the shocks. However, I believe stony strength to be worth considering at least as a 1 of in sideboard for bo3. Hidden tech here is, you can use stony strength to get an extra growth chamber guardian by only playing 1 mana instead of 3. Try to shock my guardian? Sure, it lives, I get another copy in hand, blocks your creature and becomes a 3/3. It's worth looking at.
This is my approximate deck. I built it last night and still downloading the new update, so this is by memory. While the deck has had good success with a lower curve, I have yet to test the Stony strength of it yet.
