Deck Description

A simple mono red rush. Probably similar to many red mono aggro decks.

How to Play

Can do up to 15 damage in turn 3. - that's only if it's using scorchwalker's bloodrush ability.

Ideally, being with unleashed Rakdos Cackler. T2, place ordeal of purphoros on him and attack for 3 damage. T3, attack with him again, 4 damange and the ordeal will deal another 3 damage. total of 10 damage, if you have Scorchwalker in the hand, use it and do extra 5 damage!
I might main Scorchwalker - Gotta see with your suggestions.
In t4, can easily finish off if nothing happens.

Fanatic of Mogis for sure.

Added 2 to mainboard. Great suggestion. Thanks!

have you looked at putting any of these into your SB: purphoros, god of the forge, anger of the gods, legion loyalist or burning-tree emissary. I think anger of the gods would go great with the boros reckoners, swing a 3/3 then burn them 3 more for each on the field.

well if you get a chance, stop on by and take a look at my aggro deck it might give you some ideas for new combos to try.

Might want 3 Nykthos.

I added two. Hope it's adequate. thanks!

awaken the ancient is not a good fit for this deck. the cost is too much for what you get put the dragon in instead

I also feel that pure wild shaman isn't a great fit either. I feel that Chandra's Phoenix is a more reliable three drop that you're still able to re-use like the shaman

Yeah. I agree with both of you. Fixed the MB. Should look much better. Thanks

I would suggest dropping the scorchwalker the cost is just too high for what you get. I would rather see purphoros in that spot or just add two more shocks to help your chances for putting the phoenix back in your hand
