Quote from Nevelo »Well then, you must have gotten lucky. There are a number of design choices which will lead that deck to be highly inconsistent.
It has many double color spells in both red and black, several at 2cmc and 3cmc. To reliably cast 2cmc card with double color, you need about 20 sources. However, that list only has 13 reliable sources of red and 14 reliable sources of black. Even if you count Aether Hub as a full source, you will still end up with around only 70-80% reliability on each colour. Which works out to be pretty bad overall for your games.It plays Fiery Temper, and yet only 3 ways to discard it? No less, it's Bomat Courier, which is unlikely to get popped until T5-T6 with that curve.Aforementioned 22 lands with 1x 6-drop (2x if you count the sideboard). Though that isn't the only issue. It also plays, 4x 5-drops, and 4x 4-drops. There is not nearly enough land to support that curve.It plays Yahenni, a sac outlet, but only 13 other creatures, 3 of which want to sacrifice themselves for value.It plays Unlicensed Disintegration with only 7x artifacts to enable its extra damage. This is the least offending issue, since at least its still a removal spell.It plays a stack of creature removal, which is dead against control decks. It doesn't play much in the way of card advantage, so it is going to 1-for-1 for the first few turns, then gas out against Green and Blue decks without much to show for it.
In other words, its looks like a bad deck.
Edit: Also, I said I was having fun with the Mono Red deck (the Big Red deck mentioned above, i.e. a midrange deck). I didn't say it was good. But I will say its likely better than the BR deck linked.
Quote from Nevelo »I dunno. That deck looks pretty bad. 6-drops with 22 lands? Double black and double red spells? No thanks. Though, I have been having fun with a modified version of that Mono Red deck.
Quote from Nevelo »Forerunner of Slaughter could be good in the RB build. Solid aggressive 2-drop that has haste as a 3-drop. Gives our reanimated Scroungers, topdecked Copters, and Nalaar Thopters haste too. I'm thinking I'll try a build trying two off, cutting a Pia and the random Bushwhacker from the stock list. Just needs a slight adjustment to the manabase to accomodate the slightly earlier Black requirements.
