Quote from PJ II thought the point of running red was to main deck the RR. Besides any red deck variant the card is crazy to play with. Between gray merchant and RR. They are dead within 2 turns. I also like the 1 of Erebos in the main. I played E-Fro's list Saturday and RR was backbreaking against esper. As a 2 of you won't get stuck with both in your hand too often and it's really the main reason to run red. I might be cutting a pack rat for a dreadbore. I don't have enough experience with it yet. I would to hear result soviet when you are done.
Quote from PJ II really like your list. I especially like the side board. If I had 1 critique, I don't like 3 kill spells at sorcery speed. What do we think about Mogis Marauder? Seems like forcing damage through, plus gary, plus RR could steal some games.
Quote from PJ II agree with you on marauder. Seems too narrow. I am really liking E-Fro's list the more I play it. There was an article on starcity about cutting the whip for a maindeck duress and I really like that idea. I read E-Fro's article today and he said that's the only cards he would cut. How has Mogis been?

Quote from sovietbaconWhat are people's thoughts on Staff of the Death Magus? It seems really good right now because of Burn. I'm not sure if I want to make room for it in the sideboard though.

Seems really good against burn. Also 3 MBD decks made top 8 at GP Beijing. All playing straight black and all main decking pack rat. It also won the tournament. Interesting. Has the red splash lost its luster already?
Quote from sovietbaconI still think EFro's list is better than the straight Mono-B lists that made top 8. Pack Rat is good in a slow meta, and with burn on the rise, Standard is moving away from that. The red splash is great against control, which will still be an important MU, though not as important as it was a couple weeks ago. I wish there was another way to beat burn, though...
