LOL, I know how you feel. I had to go to another thread and solicit Barney to try my deck out and give me feedback. I would suggest using either [ deck ] cardnames and amounts [ /deck ] without the spaces in the brackets, or [ c ] cardname [ /c ] for each card. either way works, but it allows people to see the cards in the deck so they aren't going off memory or don't have to look up card's they're not familiar with.

That said, here's a few thoughts I have without playing the deck. I'm not sure you want Endbringer and Big Chandra in a deck with 23 lands. It's going to be hard to hit 6 lands reliably on t6, you're probalby already using the looting/draw in the deck to hit 5 so you can play Glorybringer/Reality Smasher on curve. BTW, good call on Reality Smasher, I'm going to have to consider him for my mono-red as well. Not sure that including enough colorless lands to support him is worth it since we're only running 23 lands though. I guess i'm just saying you have a really high curve for only 23 lands.

It almost seems like you're trying a Red Ramp deck with Conduit of Storms and Vessel, but I'm not sure those slots are worth it. And I'm not sure what Mirrorwing dragon want's to do in this deck. You don't have any combat tricks to copy. I think you want 4-6 one drops and the rest 2 drops instead of those 7 cards. This deck looks like it want's to be aggressive enough that it can end the game with a T5 Dragon/Eldrazi, but you're not creating enough pressure T1-3 to do that.

And I'm not trying to dismiss or belittle you, but you only have 8 posts, how many decklists could you have posted that got ignored?

Sixty, deck is 3-0 and feels good. There must got be too many grey lands but I'm not sure. It's really fun holding up Insult for the right moment. Hellion and Devils are really doing some excellent early work

Coexist,

How's the steal version working for you? I played someone who seemed to be using a mashup of our two decks. That Red Expertise taking a creature and allowing a free cast Ahn-Crop Crasher to blank my other blocker was GG. Seems like a fun move to pull off. Wasn't fun from the other side.

Don't believe the sugar coating Sixty! When he says "retire", that means he raged and ripped up the decklist he printed out. That was immediately followed by him cursing at the deck while he deleted it out of his library. Don't worry though. It's become tradition and almost honorary to have a deck go through the 'Barney Ceremony'.

I love watching Barney play KOTH for this moment. It's usually preceded by lots of cursing during the game. It seems so cathartic.

Awesome gif, I like how he tosses the entire pad of paper

If I remember, the next time I rage delete a deck, I'll try and mimic this new monkey ritual. The noise the crumpling would make alone, near the mic, would be worth it

Yeah, I'm sad I never got to refine it further. Shortly after we discussed this build, I stopped playing for various reasons and haven't been able to get back into it. I'm glad you like it though, it was a lot of fun when I did get to play with it.

So. After almost a full year, here's the final decklist for Shock and Awe. It is the best pile of red cards you're gonna find in this game.
