Deck Description

I know the deck looks weird with the numbers and all but I swear they're on purpose. All the creature splits are on purpose, minus singleton Abbot of Keral Keep. There's only one Abbot because I'm poor and that also explains why the sideboard and burn-suite isn't the greatest. I decided to change it up this time from my usual creature-based aggro strategies. I had been playing a mix of Goblins and burn deck which can be found here, http://www.mtgvault.com/liglig/decks/prepro-tour-origins-monored/. After the most recent pro tour, I decided to follow the lead of the pros and move towards a more burn-based tempo-style deck. Well, I guess that's what this is. Because we can't rely on the best consistency in the world, I rely on the deck's ability to change it's role in each match-up on the fly. The deck can backpedal surprisingly well for a red deck and doesn't have to constantly go in guns-a-blazing. So if anyone's interested in helping me out with tuning and ideas, just let me know in the comments section. I love hearing about new red deck tech that people come up with. Thanks!

Deck discussion for Post Pro Tour Origins Mono-Red

Abbot is the best card you got available = auto 4 of. Firedrinker is a liability in a meta full of burn = too dangerous. Ire Shaman and Glory Chaser are just terrible so = 0. A simgle Molten Vortex with 20 land seems like a reach so = 0. You either need more Eidolons main or none at all. Titan Strenght is just begging for a 2 for 1 = swap for more burn. Hope that helps.

Also, I took the deck to a local FNM today. Did alright, but you were right. The Titan's Strengths were ok at punching through damage but I usually wanted more creatures then the extra damage. The Ire Shamans were awful since I never had time to mega-morph them. And the Glory Chaser was absolute clown shoes except the one time I drew him in my opening hand when I was on the play. And I got one of my Firedrinkers Shrapnel Blasted. Never again.

Made edits to the deck today after the most recent FNM. I cut Ire Shaman, Titan's Strength, Firedrinker Satyr, Goblin Glory Chaser, and Mardu Scout. I replaced the lot of them with the Outburst/Fodder/Denizen package from before. Also, made removed the Rending Volleys from the sideboard and replaced them with Smash to Smithereens.

P.S. U/R Running with Scissors is officially #1 my hit list of decks to beat.

Ok then: Magma Spray in SB for Hangarbacs, Scouring Sands for Thopters, (also good for the mirror), mission accomplished!
