xyr0s on R/W Aggro (The fastest one)

1 week ago

what Dave_Icaria says, mostly. Besides, your current set-up is very vulnerable to disruption, because the cards rely on each other so much. Little experiment: Try goldfishing, but assume that you are Thoughtseized on turn 1 for your best card, that your best land is Ghost Quartered on turn 2, and your best creature is hit by a Lightning Bolt at the worst possible time in turn 3 (I like this test, as all of these things is something you can expect in modern, even if not in the same game). See if you still have a coherent game plan.

If you don't play this competitively, it still needs a bit of adjustment.

You can go more burn-like or more creature-like, but either way, what you have now has too high variance. If you want to go more burn-like, add a Monastery Swiftspear, a Lightning Bolt, a full set of Lava Spike and remove anything that doesn't directly try to kill your opponent (Center Soul for example, is useless in an aggro deck mainboard).

Other cards that are too slow: Alesha, Who Smiles at Death. Played at 3 cmc in a deck with no acceleration, attacking in turn 4, and then eating up another 2 mana to use her special ability, which may or may not be relevant. And she has toughness 2.

Both of the gideons are too slow for actual aggro. Making tokens is a grindy process. You might win that way, but then you need a more grindy plan, where you build up advantage on the board over several turns.

If you really want to do something funny, that could work well, you could go for much more prowess. Add more Monastery Mentor, a full set of Young Pyromancer, and stay with 4 Monastery Swiftspear. Add to that as many cheap spells as you can, both something a bit unusual (hint: phyrexian mana is your friend) and the best one-cmc spells in modern (Lightning Bolt, Path to Exile). It's not a fully competitive deck, but I suspect that it could do quite well at fnms.

Thanks for the comment!I do run 3 Celestial Colonnade, didn't really want 4 because it can really slow down the deck, especially with 4 Temple of Enlightenment. The more I think about Snapcaster Mage the more I think that it needs to be added to the mainboard. I like Blessed Alliance, probably take out Apostle's Blessing. I like Center Soul as well, just not really sure what I would take out for that. Thanks for the comment and the +1!

May I suggest Emerge Unscathed as a strictly better Center Soul?

I think I stick with Center Soul, rebound gives me 8 times protection from a color, that's worth the price.Looked at your deck, graveyard mechanics are nice, but the rest of it didn't gave me much of inspiration ;)

Sigarda, Heron's Grace and Center Soul both seem a little overcosted for their effects. I imagine Brave the Elements would be pretty good.

Here's a non-budget version, though without Noble Hierarch the price isn't too bad either:GW Humans.

eu tirava os double strikes, protecao e tal e botava Ride Down, uns counters de 1 e 2 manas. seus bichos ja sao fortes, a ishai ja tem evasao, nao gasta carta neles, deixa eles trabalharem sozinhos. o Psychotic Fury bom pq cantrip. tirava todas essas coisas que custam mais que 3 dolares, d pra abaixar bastante o preco do deck. as coisas com shroud interagem mal com o bruse, s pra avisar. tme equipamentos melhores, d uma olhada nos que eu tenho no deck do skullbriar. tiraria protecao tipo Norn's Annex, kazuul, deck aggro se defende batendo. procura mais coisa de comprar, tipo Mask of Memory. eu usaria todas as coisas de haste que tem, swiftfoot, fervor. botava mais uns 3 signets, eles rampam de 2 pra 4. controle de aggro mais pra se defender, coisa tipo o augustin no ajuda muito o seu plano. Sejiri Steppe, sunhome, Slayers' Stronghold, Angelic Skirmisher, Center Soul, Emerge Unscathed, Shelter, tenza, o-naginata, se pra usar clone melhor aquele com haste, mas tudo seu lendario, pode dar ruim. costumo usar 34 lands e umas 6 mana rocks

@WoolyAllen Emerge Unscathed is a great addition! It can replace Gods Willing and Center Soul, giving some space to Lightning Bolt. However, I can't say the same to Young Pyromancer because the theme of the deck is all about Human Soldiers. That's is even why I'm thinking to remove completely Lagonna-Band Trailblazer. Thank you for your comment!

Emerge Unscathed would be a nice upgrade from Center Soul.
