RDW's New Toys

Recommended Posts

So, we all agree RDW is an awful deck, right? That being said, it's mad fun to play, and I think we'd all like to see it be competitve again. Here's two things I've found interesting from AVR (and I'm sure there's more to come in M13 and in the rest of the spoilers)

While Stormblood Berserker doesn't die to Tragic Slip (which cood be a big deal), this guy does damage faster early game, where RDW wants to win. Let me explain:

Assume you open 3 Mountains, Stromkirk Noble, Stormblood Berserker, Volt Charge, and some other random red card.

T1: Mountain, Noble.
T2: Attack with Noble and put a counter on it. Mountain, Berserker with 2 counters on it. 1 damage total.
T3: Mountain, Volt Charge and proliferate Noble, attack with Noble and Berserker. 10 damage total.

Now replace Berserker with Mauler.

T1: Mountain, Noble.
T2: Mountain, Mauler bonding it to Noble, swing with both. 3 damage total.
T3: Mountain, Volt Charge proliferating Noble, swing. 11 damage total.

Actually they are both 11 damage and the scenario with the Beserker would only give more damage the later the game went on.

I love Pillar. Card is so good even outside of RDW.

Also, Berserker is a much better threat.

Why would we want to see RDW become good again? It's a deck that allows bad players to steal games from good players...

i like how this thread doesn't even mention vexing devil

Vexing Devil was already discussed in another thread...plus it's hard to theorycraft that card since it's so situational.

Two other red cards translated from spanish.

Apuesta peligrosa – 1R Common
Instant
Discard your hand, then draw two cards.

Rebelión de techadores – 2R Common
Sorcery
Put three 1/1 red Human creature tokens with haste onto the battlefield. Sacrifice those tokens at the beginnig of the next end step.

That first card is ridiculous.
