Starting cards are any ranged creature and Blood Singer. If you have a ranged creature, keep Kobold Barracks and/or Gift of Steel.
Your top priority is to get a ranged creature in front of your orb and attacking the enemy as soon as possible. Hopefully, this will force them to rush you and, most importantly, abandon their wells. Buff this ranged creature with Kobold Barracks or Gift of Steel as soon as you see an opening to hit their orb on the same turn.
Second priority is locking down one of your wells – you should be able to do this on the same turn or shortly after you buff your ranged creature. The best creatures for this are Blood Singer or Sagittarius, if you have a choice, but the important thing is that you have a creature there.
Third priority is extending your lands in front of your well so that a Scourgeflame Specter can reach the enemy orb on the same turn it’s played. This is less important if you have a spare Flash Wind in your hand, but still useful regardless.
A typical game goes like this: a ranged creature deals 8-12 damage to the enemy orb before they can answer it, then, while their creatures are near your orb, you sneak a scourgeflame specter next to their orb and hit them for (at least) another 5 damage. In the next few turns, you’ll likely win through scourgeflame specter or a combination of specter’s combat damage and blood singer’s damage on death as well as additional ranged pressure.
This deck is vulnerable to hard removal decks due to a low number of creatures and somewhat weak against rush decks, but fairly strong against everything else. If you’re having trouble against blue or green, this deck will help.
I usually don’t like red decks, but I have a lot of fun playing this one. As of May 13th 2017, this deck has helped me hit rank 5.
