1st Thanks for the rate, i really wasnt expecting any rates on that deck as it isnt very normal and there is no primer to help.

Nice deck, this is proberly one of the first decks i have seen of yours which is more of the 'norm'

Personally i would drop:
Ember Hauler Buy
Goblin Wardriver Buy
Spikeshot Elder Buy

and add in 4 of both Goblin Guide Buy and Goblin Bushwhacker Buy

I would also drop Arc Trail Buy and add in 2 Lightning Bolt Buy 1 more Chimeric Mass Buy and 4 Devastating Summons Buy

Hope this helps

I would add Goblin Wardiver and Goblin Guide for Establishing early damage and battlecry. Personally I see this deck similar to a Kuldotha Red deck. IMO you should totally drop the white since I can't see the point of it in the deck since all your main wincon is red.

I have always liked your decks, your approach to their design, and especially your description of that design. I haven't commented on them previously, as they seemed well put together.
For this deck, Shrine of Burning Rage Buy seems like it should have a home. Feeds off your spells, and adds to Slag Fiend Buy after popping it off.
And I think every red deck (and some not-red) should have at least 3 Act of Aggression Buy in the sideboard. Could be due to my un-healthy love of that card.
Pls check out my Fresh Celebration deck and let me know if you have any suggestions for it.

very good idea, just a little bit more of battle cry and this deck can make a mess

Rally the Forces Buy should be put in main deck for some good offensive/defensive


please look my only deck and give me your opinion aswell Happy

I would like to see 3 mox opals added to the deck because they produce extra mana for you, and if you have 2 ,just sacrifice it to kudoltha rebirth. Another thing is the arc trails bring more synergy than you think. They can kill extra memnites for your slag fiend, and they kill any other aggressive deck in existence. remove the oxida daredevils please, they are not as good as 2 mana on turn one. Also, the whole unique name of the deck is cool.

please rate any deck of mine that interests you.

okay you don't need mox opals and i would keep it in the scars block instead of putting in the "usual" red goblin cards. this deck looks good. the only thing that i really like that might help is Piston Sledge (3 mana to give my guy +3/+0...always? deal! and it can help pump up slag fiend) instead of maybe the chimeric masses (kinda slow anyways) or maybe the flayer husks (i do like those though). that is the only thing i have to say. Good luck!

This deck is solid, however I agree with some other comments. Burning rage shrine is a good possibility, also if u r running red and the souleater you should include assault strobe and fling. Both of those cards will do well when your creatures are getting pumped. Please rate my poison bruise deck

Definitly add Shrine of Burning Rage Buy as a sort of time bomb. The Mox opals do not serve much of a function in a monocolour deck, save sacking to the rebirth. Otherwise, this seems a pretty decent red Beatdown.

All of my decks need rates, so just pick the one that tickles your fancy

Only thing I can think to suggest is to replace Iron Myr Buy in the sideboard with Perilous Myr Buy. Looks good bro, keep it up.

The only problem I can see with this deck is that you play out your entire hand about turn three or four, then a mass-removal is played and you are just playing from your deck. I don't think it is fast enough to win before that happens.

Quoting jimsolo88:I don't think it is fast enough to win before that happens.

Oftentimes, this deck wins by turn 4-5. There are plenty of damage boosters in the deck, particularly those that boost attacking creatures. Contested War Zone Buy and Signal Pest Buy are the most efficient ones. Additionally, Galvanic Blast Buy enables me to deal the last shot of damage before the opponent can swipe my army of attackers.

Recently, I added Immolating Souleater Buy which now allows me to win on turn 3, provided that I can pump it into a 10/1 creature after I paid at most 18 life. This is not always the case, especially if I have red mana to spend. Nonetheless, this creature is actually an effective game-finisher.

In case my opponent plays a destruction spell, Slag Fiend Buy comes to the rescue. This allows me to still finish the opponent even after a massive destruction. Furthermore, Immolating Souleater Buy and Chimeric Mass Buy are also useful in a barren mid-game.

As for other cards like Goblin Guide Buy and Goblin Bushwhacker Buy, I won't consider them anymore for I'm maintaining the built of this deck ready for the rotation of Zendikar Block out of the Standard format. Hence, I only include cards from Scars of Mirrodin Block, and the upcoming M12.

looks solid, i agree with a post above saying you should remove iron myr for Perilous Myr, i would also maybe sideboard hex parasite and maybe dismember in the case they are playing things with pro red, and instead of panic spellbomb you could play shatter incase you need to stop artifacts and could double as a way to kill on of your own artifact to make slag fiend bigger because it is an instant
