I love to play and analyze all kind of games, as long as the luck factor is smaller than the skill factor.

The games I play best are Go (currently around 1dan, highest rank 3dan in 2007) and No-Limit Hold'em Poker. I also enjoy Dominion, Carcasonne, Settlers of Catan, Bluff, Magic the Gathering, Atlantis, Munchkin Quest and similar games.

comment How do I deal with Enchantments while playing mono-red?
+1 for a good answer. Chaos Warp seems dangerous against some decks, but I can see me using it against a specific deck I am having problems with. Looking forward to Innistrad a lot - if I want to do something red again, I will consider Boros as an option.

+1 for the long list of cards with unpreventable damage. I will see which ones I can get my hands on to experiment with. Manabarbs is also interesting, although I have to test it to see how effective it is with my red decks.

@thesunneversets : How do you deal with Leyline of Sanctity if your deck contains a good amount of shooters? You can of course target enemy creatures and hope to do enough damage with your own, but in my experience I need to do some direct damage as well against a strong deck to be fast enough with mono-red.

+1: OMG! I never thought about Ratchet Bomb, that's a great idea. Especially since I have 4 of them lying around already :). I will have to experiment with splashing other colors, although I prefer to keep my burn decks mono-colored. Using Geosurge and the Spine seems a little bit expensive to get rid of a single enchantment. Without any testing, I think I prefer Ratchet Bomb, especially against cheap enchantments.

+1: Interesting card. Could be a useful sidedeck card for private play when I expect to be up against W.

@Affe : I know, that's the usual response. But against a Circle of Protection in round 2 or a Leyline of Sanctity before the first round it is hard to land a killing blow earlier ;).

@adamjford : Leyline of Sanctity from M11 troubled my red shooter deck a lot, it basically is an instant lose if my opponent has it in his opening hand. After M11 leaves Standard, this will only haunt me in Extended and Legacy.

comment Does Day of Judgment remove hexproof / shrouded creatures?
@edem : You explicitly need the keyword "target" on the card. Day of Judgment does not destroy "target creatures" but "all creatures".
