A Different Look at Mono Red

Standard is evolving so fast these days. Since the pro tour the best deck has been: U/R Thopters, Mono Red, GW Aggro, GR Devotion and Hangerback Abzan. When one deck emerges another falls. With the rise of Mono red and Thopters, Dromoka’s command became a big player again because of how good it is vs those decks. The decks then skyrocketed to the top.
