cobra-jund is what I would play, and what I just won a Ptq with. Check out Tyler Clatanoff's Madison 1st place list, it is so sick. I changed the bloodwhiches to Vess, as they servve the same purpose but better, but the deck is rock solid. That is what I would play, and what I advise to anyone.

turn 1 inquisition
turn 2 cobra
turn 3 bbe to kicked ruinblaster/sarkhan the mad/ gang-bang commander

It is a solid list that gets the "umm... wtf" kinda hands way more often than it seems it would.

Bolts are overrated, a 1 for 1? F that! that shit will lose you a game in the mirror, there is no time to be playing mere one for ones.

Next level bant keels over to jund charm and chain reaction

RDW is a great deck, but I would advise cobra-inquisition jund, as it cannot be hated out, has no bad matchups, and almost never mulls.

how is inquisition not a 1 for 1 just like bolt

that list has too many fetches i think, i almost won a ptq with cobra jund and i never wanted more than 5-6 fetches, you can dead draw them sometimes especially in that list with so few basics

A clock immune to Path/O-Ring/BSA?

Yea, Bloodwitch is ridiculous against almost every deck with white in it.

I can't agree that Liliana Freaking Vess is as good or remotely fills the same purpose.

red deck wins beats jund alot, it crushes conscription, and polymorph. with the right board cards it can handle firewalker. i think rdw has alot of potential.

RDW won't top 8 nationals. There will be enough people with a good side board against RDW to knock you out of contention at some point.

RDW is great against Jund, but Jund is hardly going to be the number 1 deck at nationals.

I would play Mythic as it is the best deck in standard.
