Hellspark is blanked by Wall of Omens -- one of the most popular creatures in T2.

Fetches make Geopede -- which you are, for some reason, not playing -- better. Geo is your ideal 2-drop.

Kargan is awesome.

Kiln Fiend you can debate, but he's much more intimidating than Hellspark.

Peeks is almost surely worth it (although, I like Spires better with Kiln Fiend).

they can win with luck and a good main

but you have a lot of things in your deck that work slow... rdw wins need be a more aggresive and fast

maybe geopede or kiln in the main the tuktuk i think will not work you can try it but i don't think it's effective

kargan, kiln and geopede are good for a rdw... 4 fetchs, more instant dmg

in the side i like manabarbs, pyroclasm, smother and deathmark

Blazing Torch is also an answer for Kor Firewalker as well as Vamps.

Yes blazing torch does work against kor firewalker, the torch is a colourless source, the creature does not need to target anything just tap to activate and then the torch does the targeting itself.

Yo, a "blazing torch" implies that it is on fire. Everyone knows fire and destruction and dargons and all that crazy shit are associated with red mana.

Therefore, a blazing torch must be colored red.

From the Zendikar FAQ:

The source of the damage is Blazing Torch, not the equipped creature. However, the equipped creature's ability is what targets the creature or player. If Blazing Torch is equipped to a red creature, for example, the ability couldn't target a creature with protection from red. It could target a creature with protection from artifacts, but all the damage would be prevented.

wow.

Blazing Torch is not an answer to Kor Firewalker, however, Unstable Footing, or splashing black is.

RDW is a solid tier 2 deck that can luck its way to match wins over all of the tier 1 decks.

Basically, if you're a hater, play RDW. You'll get to play a deck worth like $150 and sometimes you'll beat Magic obsessed nerds playing $1,200 decks.
