Aggressive Instinct Discussion

shadow63 What card? Savage Punch ? That's a fight effect. I would say the first card I have known as one-sided fights is Crush Underfoot and a more flexible version in Soul's Fire . The first green version was Rabid Bite in Shadows over Innistrad.

Others that followed in green: Aggressive Instinct (from the global series), Ambuscade , Band Together , Clear Shot , Combo Attack , Moonlight Hunt and Nissa's Judgment .

I don't think there's a consensus on what this effect should be called.

That comment about flying makes sense, I'm not used to having such nice creature removal as green!

For board wipes, I was thinking of including something like Predatory Urge in place of one of the fight instants/sorceries. It's similar to Ulvenwald Tracker , making the fight into a per turn ability means I can save cards in my hand and be in a better position after a wipe. But with the amount of card draw in the deck, it might not be necessary/good to save too many cards

I also was wondering if Unnatural Aggression was meant to be replaced by Band Together . It's what the changelog implies, but I wanted to check.

Does it often come up that you fight using someone other than the commander where one-sided fighting cards would be better, like Aggressive Instinct or Clear Shot . Having lower cost cards as well as instants vs sorceries is better, but only if there's no advantage to one-side fighting. Commander being indestructible helps a ton, but I wanted to know if you ran into scenarios where having one-sided would have been better.

Only other card I was gonna suggest/ask you about is Triangle of War , this deck has a lot of draw, which is very nice, so being able to have one of your fight cards on the table instead of in your hand seems useful.
