    My Mono Red Deck -- :)

    I haven't saved up Magic cards anywhere near as long as the top pros, but with what I have I've made a mono-red deck that has a bunch of removal and aggresive cards. I will be glad to take comments on the deck except by suggesting I add tons of mythic rares since I'm not getting many these days :D And also, it's a Vintage deck because of the Savage Beatings. I don't think it would win too many Vintage tournaments .. if I ever wanted to play it I'd take out those Beatings for something else!

You have Ancestral Recall and two Runeflare Traps in your hand, one island on the battlefield and two mountains as well. You play Ancestral Recall and have your opponent draw three cards. Now they should have ten cards in their hand. Runeflare Trap's "trap ability" is now activated, and you deal 20 damage to him with two Runeflare Traps. It's a little complicated and specific, but it will work, hopefully.

    Because Ancestral Recall isn't a easily obta…
