This is my current version of red control. When coming back after a break of almost two years I took my old Red Control List (https://www.faeria.com/the-hub/deck/935-r-control-by-noaphiel) and tweaked it into the current game. Therefore following changes applied:

  • Remove of Horsemaster after the huge nerf to 3w requirement

  • Remove of Triple Firestorm after the huge nerf

  • Remove of Flame Spitter due to better fitting cards

  • Remove of Kobold Warbeast due to better fitting cards

  • Added Outland Ranger to get more turn 1 creatures (after remove of Horsemaster)

  • Added Lost Explorer to get more turn 1 creatures (after remove of Flame Spitter)

  • Added Rakoakopter because op op

  • Added 1 Kobold Barracks for situational value

Playstyle:

During Mulligan you go for one of your starting cards (Outland, Axe Grinder, Lost Explorer) added by a spell (Seifer’s Wrath, Flame Burst). I kinda always open to one of the sides. When facing rush stay defensive to both of your own wells, against everything else try to contest the side where your opponent is going and try to control the area. In both cases the key of the deck is to remove your opponent’s creatures as efficient as possible and slowly building a faeria advantage throughout the game. Rakoakopter, Bomb Slinger and Spells give enough instant removal to deal with newly spawned creatures immediately. Once gaining a faeria advantage over your opponent try to pressure his orb and end the game quickly.
