Rivals of Ixalan Limited Tier Rankings: Red

Tier 1: Best of the best. When casting/activating abilities of these cards you feel like you are in control and cannot lose

Tier 2: Fantastic card. Very hard for your opponent to beat, but not unbeatable.

Tier 3: Cards you are (realistically) hoping make up the bulk of your deck.

Tier 4: Playable, but unexciting.

Tier 5: You are miserable having these in your deck.

Sideboard Tier: Cards that will not be in your main but are likely to be boarded in against certain match-ups.

Stone Unplayable Tier: Not playing the tournament would be better.

*Note: These cards were placed in a tier under the assumption you are NOT in a particular archetype that may make the card better. Therefore, if you are in a particular archetype that may make a card slightly better than you can move the card up half a tier, and thus making it stand above the rest of the cards within the same tier.

Lets get into it!

All in all red seems good. There are a couple of bombs and some solid burn, but there are a few “meh” cards that make me a little less excited for red in Rivals.

Stayed tuned for more Rivals of Ixalan limited tier rankings!
