I'm looking for some help trying to make a Big Red esque deck, I want to pack enough burn/removal to survive the early game and then play bigger creatures and just go over the top with cards like Inferno titan and Thundermaw hellkite.
4 Grim Lavamancer
4 Frostburn Weird
- Weak but I need a 2 drop that can block tarmogoyf and live at least some of the time, maybe splash white for Wall of Omens
4 Boros Reckoner
4 Solemn Simulacrum
3 Koth of the Hammer
2 Deus of Calamity
2 Thundermaw Hellkite
3 Coldsteel Heart
- is signet better ramp? or something like Everflowing chalice
4 Lightning Bolt
3 Bonfire of the Damned
3 Searing Blaze
The idea behind the deck being to survive long enough to ramp up to bigger threats. I like deus because its a 5 drop and hence easier to cast then inferno titan
other options are stuff like Arc-Slogger Demigod of Revenge
Is bonfire to slow I was thinking about running volcanic fallout
instead. Fallout is an instant so I can cast it in response to cranial plating and things like that.
The two drop slot is a problem Frostburn weird isn't exactly optimal all the playable red 2 drops are more suited for more aggro play. Kargan Dragonlord
could be worth running but not confident with all the spot removal.
I haven't really thought about sideboard yet: Most likely it would be stuff like Blood moon
against decks like Jund with all the manlands Molten Rain
seems good for Tron. I probably need something to shore up combo match ups, as deck doesn't interact much Rakdos charm
seems good against splinter twin.
What are other peoples thoughts could this deck be viable?
Edit: Adding White could be worthwhile it gives access to wall of omens
, Path to exile
, and Baneslayer Angel
and unlike some other colors doesn't interfere with Boros Reckoner mana.
