G/R Aggro

Post #1 by Jasper » Tue Oct 21, 2014 8:01 am

[deck=GR Redshit]
Creatures 22
4 Elvish Mystic
4 Rattleclaw Mystic
4 Goblin Rabblemaster
4 Ashcloud Phoenix
4 Stormbreath Dragon
2 Purphoros, God of the Forge

Walkers 4
2 Xenagos, the Reveler
2 Chandra, Pyromaster

Spells 11
4 Hordeling Outburst
3 Magma Jet
3 Lightning Strike
1 Roar of Challenge

Lands 23
4 Temple of Abandon
4 Wooded Foothills
1 Mana Confluence
8 Mountain
6 Forest
[/deck]

This is what I've been testing so far, based on what I currently own. Sylvan Caryatid may be better here, but having a dork that can attack is sometimes relevant, and the Morph ability has been put to use on occasion. Mana base may need work, but it's been fine so far. Roar of Challenge is a fun-of, and when it works, it works. Ashcloud Phoenix could probably be there in less copies. Could probably use another Xenagos, the Reveler, because he's fucking sick with Rabblemaster and Hordeling Outburst, and with Purphoros too.



Also, I guess this can be the GR Monsters thread, where people can discuss mana dorks and big dumb fatties.

This is more R/g Aggro than monsters. Monsters can be aggressive but plays a different game.

Didn't do so hot at the GP. Changed the burn package around and did 4 Claws, 1 Stoke, and added a 2nd Queen in the main. I think I'm just going to keep playing this until I find something else that I feel comfortable playing. Izzet Burn seems like it might be something I'd enjoy, not sure.


Oh, and this happened, which was kind of neat.
