I have lost with Red Rush to the Sky Yak swarm deck. Sure a lucky rush wins, but an unlucky rush loses just as hard. However, I do leave the option open that I might have played the rush badly, but from what I have seen it’s a luck-based matchup.
In regards to Yellow Rush, I rarely played that, so I have no comments on the matchup but I definately take your word for it that it is the worst matchup.
I agree Red Control and Red Burn feast on it provided they draw Firestorm/Garudan at the right time, I did mention Red Control myself and Red Burn I named Red Events, considering how event-based the deck is.
However, I also have to say I lost twice with Red Control to the Yak Swarm because I didn’t draw Firestorm or Garudan until it was way too late. I never played Red (Burn) Events, so I have no comments on that, but considering it carries 3 Firestorm as well as a potential Garudan, on paper it works well.
That, and what are decks like Monogreen or Monoblue going to do against the Yak Swarm? I mean, in the end, every deck should have a moderate chance to win against any other deck, though a very greedy deck becomes more vulnerable to rush, and it should depend on player skill.
Not on what deck you decided to enter the ladder with.
