Budgeting Arena - Mono Red Aggro: the return of one of the most explosive deck

With the release of Core Set 2021, we updated one of the most present decks in all formats: Mono Red Aggro.

By MTG, 07/26/20

Standard might rotate but MonoRed Aggro is eternal. Even if it is not a tier 1 deck, its variations always achieve good results. And with the release of M21, we had some good additions, especially for those who like to build budget versions.

We kept the 4 copies of

Tin Street Dodger

, creature 1/1 for a red mana that for another red mana can only be blocked by barriers (type of creature very rare in the current metagame). We also kept the 4 copies of

Scorch Spitter

, a creature that when attacking causes damage to the player or planeswalker he is attacking, remembering that this damage is caused before the opponent can declare blockers.

We replaced the copies of 4 copies of

Fervent Champion

for

Goblin Arsonist

, a creature that can deal 1 damage to any target, and the 4 copies of

Robber of the Rich

with

Heartfire Immolator

, a creature with prowess. In addition, it can be sacrificed to cause damage equal to its power to the target creature or planeswalker, making it a great removal. We increased from 2 to 4 copies of

Anax, Hardened in the Forge

, creatures that get stronger as we fill the battlefield with our red creatures. It is also a good answer to global removals. We removed the 4 copies of

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell

. To support the deck: We kept the 4 copies of

Bolt Hound

and

Rimrock Knight // Boulder Rush

, to maintain our deck aggressive. We replaced the 4 copies of

Embercleave

with

Infuriate

, instant that considerably increases a creature's power until the end of the turn. We kept the 4 copies of

Light Up the Stage

, which helps us to find resources, especially when we are empty-handed (which happens very early with this deck). We replaced the 4 copies of

Bonecrusher Giant // Stomp

with

Shock

to be able to damage any target. On the mana basis we removed the 4 copies of

Castle Embereth

and we increased from 16 to 20 copies of

Mountain

. And with these changes we arrive at the following list:

Despite the changes, the deck manages to have an explosive start with low CMC creatures and to increase the power of our creatures in the mid / late game. I hope you enjoyed and see you soon.
