MattyPatty on Orzhov Aggro

If your trying to to do an Orzhov Aggro kind of deck, then I would probably run Knight of Grace / Knight of Malice . Helps with being more aggressive. Cut the Reavers and your Spark Harvests for 2x Knight of Grace and 2x Knight of Malice. Run Vraska's Contempt in the Sideboard instead of Ritual of soot. While it is a boardwipe, it does kill about 90% of all your creatures (everything except Spawn of Mayhem ), if your building off of a Mono-White build that might not be a great idea.

Hope this Helps!

  • Dawn Charm is another great fill-in along the same lines as 'pseudo-counterspell'. Real rarity to find counterspell effects in Black or White.
  • I like the idea behind the Emerge Unscathed suggestion, though I feel that Brave the Elements would be more powerful. Rebound is nice, but if it's just in here to act as a kind of counterspell and to upset an opponent's maneuver, then I'm not sure it's worth the sacrifice of just affecting 1 target. It looks like Knight of Malice is your only non-white creature whom it would not hit.
  • If you want to go the Protection route, then you can't get too much better for your mana than Spirit Mantle . I use that one in my "Intense Aura Beatdown" deck and it's quite stellar.

Definitely helps! I'm starting to wonder if the Cast Down are necessary. I could get rid of those and the Adanto Vanguard and put 3 Knight of Malice and three Imperious Oligarch . I like the Malice a little more because of all the white enchantment removal.

In that case you could even run Knight of Grace and/or Knight of Malice since they're really great two-drops. I like Imperious Oligarch a lot too! Hope I'm able to help :)

rpbxiii Thanks for the comment and the upvote!

I like Knight of Malice since it plays both roles in this deck. I would consider it depending on how removal shapes up. I do however want to specify that having two agressive two drops in a midrange shell is really important for having some sort of pressure versus control. Midrange typically beats up on aggro since it has more removal, bigger butts and this deck especially with mainboard Lyra Dawnbringer. Tithe Taker is an okay card versus aggressive strategies since it blocks fairly reasonable and leaves behind a body. Versus control it's supposed to shine, but I haven't played with it yet, and something else might be better in the two drop slot.

Mortify is really cool and a awesome reprint. However the deck does need some form of interaction on turn two against aggressive strategies, and it's really good versus most of the field we just had in standard. You could definitely change the removal choices in the future, but the exile effect is so good. Also the deck also runs Bedevil against planeswalkers and has a bit more utility. There is also curve considerations. If some enchantment based deck pops up I would like to run some if only in the sideboard

Kaya's Wrath mainboard is just a concession to week 1 standard where the meta is a lot more aggressive. Also we don't mind wrath the board since we got Afterlife triggers, Midnight Reaper or Adanto Vanguard

However I do believe that these two are flex spots. If you want to you could run more removal or creatures instead. I would not recommend going above 10 removal/wrath spells since it slows you way down versus control game 1.

Hope it clarified you thoughts on the deck choices. Spoilers are still coming so the deck might be due for a makeover depending on new cards!

Thanks again :)

I like this as I already thought a similar Mardu Midrange!

How about put Knight of Malice instead of Tithe Taker ?? Knight could goes easily becomes a 3/2 thanks to your white Permanent on T3 (History of Benalia or Adanto Vanguard).

Plus, I like Mortify really much instead of Lava Coil because is our only way to deal with enchantments & I see Kaya's Wrath more like a Sideboard card against aggro decks, how about replace 2x of Wrath with a couple of Vraska's Contempt?

Raid Bombardment and Unified Will are showing the same battle (Same with Knight of Grace and Knight of Malice)

Also, the cycle of ultimatums from alara each have a planeswalker hidden in them. (Brilliant Ultimatum has tezzeret, Cruel Ultimatum has bolas, Titanic Ultimatum has ajani, Violent Ultimatum has sarkaan, and elspeth can be seen in Clarion Ultimatum)

in Blood Artist, he is painting you with your own blood

Hi, very good list, just a bit weird to see these 4 artifacts when Brawl usually has Gilded Lotus Helm of the Host and Blackblade Reforged.

I would switch for these or maybe play more creatures to make Mausoleum Secrets and Necrotic Wound worth. For example Knight of Malice Slippery Scoundrel or even Soul of the Rapids if you want the spice.
