This is DragonFlare – straightforward no excuses #monoredburn at its best.
Featuring 1 Detonate, three Shatter main and 3 Shatterstorm in Sideboard because red traditionally hates #mtgartifacts and everybody seems to be flooding the board with Su-Chi, Juggernaut and Fellwar Stones these days besides the notorious Power Artifacts.
Else this #mtgoldschool deck features the iconic #manaflare for abundant mana and mighty #bloodmoon to transform all those duals into beautiful Mountains. The win condition is a fierce mix of a hell lot of #burnspells and #mtgdeck name giving #shivandragon and her lil #dragonwhelp – all of which will strive with the Mana Flare.
DragonFlare starts with building a mana base while keeping small enemy creatures in check with Bolts and Chain Lightning, shattering Mishra’s Factory, forking Hymns and/or Ancestrals; and dropping the casual Ball Lightning to inflict damage.
Second phase of DragonFlare is playing Mana Flare with another Fork in hand to avoid being burned first when handing over the turn. With abundance in red Mana we play Dragon Whelps and Shivan Dragon and pump up the Volume; or we just finish with a decent Fireball for 10+
Sideboarding Shatterstorm against Artifact heavy decks, or Black Vise against Control decks, Earthquake against Weenies, and Red Elemental Blast against anything Blue.
Playing DragonFlare is easy to learn, can be assembled as a budget deck (without the Mox Ruby) for under 100€ and is a hell lotta fun.
