Highspire Infusion Discussion
2 months ago
I like the idea of Tetsuko. Unfortunately she's a non-bo with all the pump spells other than Blossoming Defense and Rhonas's ability (Larger Than Life, Cartouche of Knowledge, Hadana's Climb Flip). I think it would be possible to re-build around her, using Highspire Infusion as a possible replacement for Larger that can be played after blockers are declared. Or go UR to have Invigorated Rampage to use after blockers.

Cartouche of Strength makes the pummeler so insane ! I recommand adding some Highspire Infusion to add more energy counters in case you can't cast 2 felidar guardians (or to replace them if you want your deck to be standard legal).
I often manage to make my pummeler a 32/32 trample by turn 4 by using a larger than life and a highspire infusion and 6 energy counters.

I would first hone in on a theme (probably creature beatdown) and not have a Electrostatic Pummeler, Aetherworks Marvel, and creature beatdown mix. I would do that by removing Electrostatic Pummeler and definitely Aetherworks Marvel to bring the good cards (possibly Bristling Hydra, Walking Ballista, or Jadelight Ranger) to 4 copies. I would, at least, put Aetherstorm Roc down to 2 and not have 4 of both Highspire Infusion and Larger Than Life because you need established board presence (which is not always a guarantee) for them to not be dead cards. As for lands, Scattered Groves, Sunpetal Grove, Shefet Dunes, and maybe even Arch of Orazca are viable. Verdurous Gearhulk and especially Angel of Invention are really good in this deck, as opposed to the hard-to-cast Aetherwind Basker.

So, I've had some succes piloting this type of deck during the last few months of standard before the bannings. There are a few suggestions that I want to make. First of: Hadana's Climb seems really good, but to be honest, I think in this shell it's too slow. You'd rather want either more creatures going face, more E producers for the pummel damage, or perhaps more pumpspells. For this reason, I'm going to suggest Highspire Infusion, Larger Than Life and Greenbelt Rampager. These cards all like to do what you want to do, at a fair and reasonable cost. I'd take out Built to Smash, a card that frustrated me to no end in the original RG Pummeler list. Used it as well, without a lot of success, as missing pummels as target just makes you feel bad. I'd also reconsider the amount of counterspells, especially Disallow, as it runs you 1UU, could be hard to cast in a three color deck. Either that, or you'd want to run more Servants.
These are just some suggestions, I've had a lot of success with the deck in the past and would love to see more people going face with pummels. Good luck on the list.

Yeah!!! is based on the Mengucci's deck :D
Padeem, Consul of Innovation maybe is too slow and is a dead card without the Pummeler in play (IMO).
Woodweaver's Puzzleknot can help in the long game , but is slow especially in an aggro deck lick this (side, maybe?).

Honestly I would keep the blossoming defense and dump the Highspire Infusion. Also, I would suggest adding in Nature's Way. You get the trample damage plus you can pump up the Electrostatic Pummeler to simultaneously kill a large creature and go in for the kill.

Ended up putting 2 of the Spell Pierce in for protection and disrupting UW Approach decks.
I'd replace One With the Wind if there was anything that gave me a better clock with any of the backup creatures. The fact of it is, my local meta is pretty grounded except for Glorybringer so if I can get ahead, a couple of flying Longtusk Cub/Rogue Refiner just puts me in the position to win without Electrostatic Pummeler.
The only other pump I could use is Highspire Infusion instead of those, but then I'm staring down the potential for being walled out.
Generally not a fan of Puzzleknots though. I'm not convinced they're the best thing for the deck.
