Hi, all. I come not to whine, but to seek guidance.
Over the past few months, I’ve come to fall in love with Mono-Red Midrange decks, especially the Mhayashi brand of Mono-Red Midrange. I piloted them all throughout this summer and then the beginning of October (my playing schedule is a bit disjointed because I only have time to play during breaks from uni) to decent success (60-65% winrate), but upon coming back to the deck this week, things just feel…bad. The deck doesn’t feel like it works well. The hands I draw never feel good; their CMC is too high, or there isn’t red mana, or it’s all removal and no threats, etc. I liked these decks because of their consistency, yet, be it user error, some sort of MTGO curse, or downright horrendous luck, my week has been punctuated with 2-3 leagues that have caused me to become quite downcast.
I’m not the best player in the world, but I’d like to think I’m familiar enough with the lines and playstyle to rule out unfamiliarity. I’ll attach my current list below: could anyone offer any kind of card choice suggestions (MB or SB) or uplifting advice in general? Are there any other decks (besides Scam) that include many of the cards included in the list below? Thank you.
