Monomanamaniac on Assault to injury

4 weeks ago

I've been toying with the idea of Chandra's Phoenix as a possible alternative. Don't know who I'll take out for it, but it combos with Madcap Skills very well, and it's haste + evasion can bring a hard turn 4, especially when you factor in Titan's Strength

sillywhiteboy on Blocking is for wimps and rich people!

Dramatic Reversal, Chromatic Lantern, possibly Madcap Skills, and Twincast tutor or beef up twice!

I like this deck you got here!

DarDar17 Thank you, I will take kind of decent haha. So yeah, the problem with Rush of Adrenaline is that it only gives 2 power. The thing with this deck is that you want to have the combo as quick and reliable as possible.

Here's the problem: Suppose you have a 1/x double striker (like most of the creatures in this deck), and in your hand you got Borrowed Hostility, Brute Force and Rush of Adrenaline. You can pump it up to 9 (1+3+3+2), so you won't have fatal. It would be different if instead of Rush of Adrenaline you had Brute Strength. However, it's still viable, and surely an option (I surely will add it to the maybeboard, and the sideboard, but I don't want to the listing price to increase) if you are going against a deck with good blockers; usually Panic Spellbomb, Madcap Skills and Break Through the Line does the job though.

So many no-no's.

Typhoid Rats is not really a modern card. If it is, then its role is to dissuade attacking, not to attack for 1 damage on turn 2. That makes it a kind of control card.

Piles of 4 cmc creatures: a couple of them, perhaps, if you don't mind being more midrange than aggro. In a deck with 20 lands, you average is to hit the first 3 land drops, then skip a turn, and have your 4th land on turn 5. On top, you have 4 lands that come into play tapped, meaning that you are even further behind. Removal is pretty good in modern, so you can expect something like Fanatic of Mogis to work poorly.

Madcap Skills. Out, all of them. Your creatures in general suffer from low toughness and a lack of protection. Trying to put an aura on them is just letting your opponent 2-for-1 you without getting anything in return.

No Lightning Bolts. Yes, it's a boring card, played by every deck that has the least bit of red mana in modern. That's because it's a very good card. It can handle early creatures, or go to the face - pretty good for an instant at 1 mana, huh?

@ Gattison

I like that idea. I think I'll try it out, just maybe not in place of Madcap Skills.
