I had a deck with howling mines, fonts, and runeflares... It was red black... with Bloodchief Ascension Buy and mana barb these look like they could help this deck out.

Thanks for the rate..

For the sideboard, I don't think Lightning Bolt is good in sideboard, or you play it maindeck, or you don't play it... Megrim seems an obvious choice, you may try to add it maindeck I think...

This seems a solid build to me, the only thing I'm not sure about, it that your deck can compete with pure aggro-decks... But that should play-tests show you :-)

Nice, original build!

Rex, the only thing is, I don't have a deck which would work well with bloodchief ascension, and might be too mana intensive to run manabarbs.

Only thing i can think of is maybe dropping the Growth Spasm Buy for something like Harrow Buy. I tend to play green a lot, and while i understand the desire for a solid chump blocker, i would advise having the two land grab instead. Just thoughts from a random green player Happy lol

Nice! I would consider adding Blightning Buy just for synergy with Megrim Buy or main decking Maelstrom Pulse Buy over Terminate Buy to give you a way to deal with Planeswalkers. Good luck with the deck. Please check out My Deck, it definitely needs some work.

i like the looks of this deck. would you consider adding Underworld Dreams Buy i think it would flow good with all the forced card draws. that and Burning Inquiry Buy is always a good combo. i would board out the Doom Blade Buy for your Maelstrom Pulse Buy i dont know about in yours but there are lots of vampires and planeswalkers in my meta.

please rate my eldrazi spawn monument deck. thanks

Interesting idea. One idea that could fit in here is hand of emrakul. Turn 2 nest invaderr, turn 3 brood birthing and pop into a hand of emrakul. Pretty nice to swing for 7 on turn four. Rapacious one might be a better token source than your hatcher. Rate my Sarkhan's Redemption deck.

Cubcadet: Harrow is better for a lot of decks, but this one needs the eldrazi to later use as a chump or fodder for shadows.

Roboctocon: Underworld dreams costs 3 black mana. I do not generally generate enough black mana with this deck to be able to play underworld dreams reliably or quickly.

phoenfir: Hand of Emrakul doesn't really fit in here. This deck has no focus on beating down with fatties, and frankly, it just wouldn't work out all that well. As for rapacious one, my problem is that it gets removed before it can produce eldrazi spawn, which is why I chose Emrakul's Hatcher instead.

Looks really solid, and you get a 5 for originality for being the only standard deck running red without Lightning Bolt Buy haha. The only suggestion I have would be running Broodwarden Buy simply because if you run into blue/white control (which I imagine would be troublesome) you can just attack them with pumped eldrazi spawn tokens while they counter your more important things

I think something the would really help this deck would be the addition of blue over black. ith blue you get Time Warp Buy, Twincast Buy and counters. As well as instant speed "bounce" spells I.E. Into the Roil Buy. I have posted a deck just like this. Runetraps by Tom. A friend of mine made it. Check it out if you fell like ideas.

If you could rate my Hatred deck, I'd appreciate it.

I think you should swap the growth spasms for Awakening Zone Buy...

Check out my discard deck.

you should try adding a couple Comet Storm Buy to the mainboard so u can deal with threats and finish games or even possibly sum Earthquake Buys so u can hav sumthin else to do with the tokens so they arent jus sittin there if u don't draw the shadows and this will address your RDW problem as well.

Could you plz r8 my Wall of Planeswalkers deck?
