Ross's article was very good today, very informative. I'm not sure playing end hostilities and angers is better than racing and winning with jeskai charm blowouts.

Could be that the post-board control mode ship has sailed. Maybe post-board extra aggro is the way to go? Might have to tweak the mana base a bit, but having swiftspear and bloodstained champ might not be bad. I think champ would love to hit for 4 or 6 points before feeding a butcher and then coming...

Would 3/3 lightning strike/magma spray be appropriate to have an early zapper for Jeskai Heroic creatures before they get too big? I'm thinking 3 erase in the side as well for PITA enchantments of all flavors.

You must have extremely good card draws LD. Some people are just like that. When I played paper, we had two people that were always saying stuff like "I almost lost that, but right at _______ point I drew the only card in my deck that could have saved me blah blah".

Not supersaturated, but high.

So anyway, what's the Mardu Plan for the onslaught of jeskai heroic combo decks sure to come down the pike? Erase in the sb? More burn on the main? More permanent exile effects main? That sort of hoses the aggro game 1 strategy, no?
