#4- Aethersphere Harvester

Feature Detail

There is always an answer to this and that, and yet when this card sticks on the board, you might win the game without worrying a lot. Aside from the ability to gain 3 life for each turn that it attacks, it also has Flying - A problem that is pretty much hard for Ramunap Red to deal with if they don't have Abrade to destroy it. Just try to brew your deck with enough creatures to crew it or else, you're screwed.

#5- Gifted Aetherborn

Feature Detail


This might see play once again to deal with the best deck in the current meta of Standard format. A turn 2 Gifted Aetherborn and followed by turn 3 Rishkar, Peema Renegade will definitely be an annoying presence for Ramunap Red. It can't be killed by Magma Spray due to having 3 toughness and once it gets counters from Rishkar, Abrade will no longer be able to kill it as well. I will definitely replace Grim Flayer at the moment if the meta is heavily crowded by Ramunap Red decks as Grim Flayer propose no threats to them.

#6- Glory-Bound Initiate

Feature Detail

Another good card that could help you survive against Ramunap Red yet like Thalia, Heretic Cathar, it's easy to get rid of. I could still find this card joining the Mardu Vehicles to outrace Red decks though. It's cheap and when it sticks to the board, Ramunap Red decks will definitely have a problem. Just don't forget to attack with it and exert as that is the only way to maximize life gain, don't try to block with it.
