Magical Monday 12.1.2014

Once again welcome to Magical Monday hope that your Thanksgiving was a good one. Reports of Walgreen’s sweet Mtg sale is spreading like wildfire. So much so that people are going to Walmart as asking for a price match because of a lack of product left at Walgreens. And while Walmart doesn’t have to it does meet all their price matching points and they should. Two packs for 3.80, is a good deal.

Okay that is enough of that, lets talk about a few things about my last post. I feel about 2 inches tall. I didn’t read every word on Fated Conflagration and it turns out that i should have as it doesn’t hit players. That “p” word is in fact planeswalker… Damn.

Also I ordered up 3 Deflecting Palms $1 a piece no problem. I looked at Stokes and they want $5 a piece. WTF? But while not… If you can find them in stock anywhere you can order them for $5. I will just plan on winning a playset this month.

So lets look at a build.

 

4 Deflecting Palm
3 Lightning Strike
4 Magma Jet

4 Anger of the Gods
2 Arc Lightning
3 Jeskai Charm
3 Mantis Rider
4 Goblin Rabblemaster

1 Fated Conflagration
4 Stoke the Flames

2 Dictate of the Twin Gods
3 Dig Through Time

23 lands
4 r/w temples
2 r/u temples
4 r/w pain lands
4 r/w/u tru lands
2 u/w fetchlands
3 mountain
2 island
2 plains

I feel that this deck does everything the mono red deck does but adds in the one of the best cards available in Dig. Dig lowers the need to have 4 Dictates. One of the issues i had was having two many dictates in hand and not enough action and sometimes you just need 2 more burn spells to finish a game and digs just equals action. The other thing that really got me about the deck was the lack of options when dealing with some situations. And i think that Jeskai Charm adds a ton of flexibility to the deck. There was at least one point where had i had the option to give my team +1/+1 and life link would have won a game even earlier or saved me vs Travis.

Thoughts?
