Rancor Discussion

SaSSolino8 on First Deck

I play Selesnya (green/white) too and auras are strong here (Unflinching Courage, Ethereal Armor and Rancor), you can then add creatures with heroic (like Fabled Hero) or hexproof (like Gladecover Scout). also Aura Gnarlid and Kor Spiritdancer are always good with auras; the Kor Spiritdancer is quite expensive, but also often the best card in aura decks.

I also saw some very good token decks in Selesnya, but I don't know mutch about it.

if you don't like neither of those, a mono-green deck is very good to build mana really fast (with cards like Explore, Birds of Paradise and Rampant Growth) to allow you to play giant creatures.

if you want big green creatures you need mana boosters like Explore or Rampant Growth and I'd also remove white. anyway my tip in Selesnya (green/white) is to use auras (like Unflinching Courage, Ethereal Armor and Rancor) plus creatures with heroic (like Fabled Hero) or hexproof (like Gladecover Scout). also Aura Gnarlid and Kor Spiritdancer are always good with auras; the Kor Spiritdancer is quite expensive, but also often the best card in aura decks.

then add 4 Experiment One, 4 Burning-Tree Emissary, 4 Goblin Guide (this one is a bit expensive =/), go up to 4 Ghor-Clan Rampager full on cut your Loxodon Smiters cut your Lightning Helix, cut your Rancors. Rename your deck: ponyo.deck and just go ham.

XD I was assuming that you weren't trying to just go ham because you weren't running the Experiment One Burning-Tree Emissary combo.

seriously gruul aggro is the deck and it wins events all the time. I would say it is pretty top tier and it is stupid cheap (if you play the version without goyf)

gruul aggro list (don't mind the name it became a thing before the nycatl unbanning):

Hexproof needs 4x Slippery Bogle, 4x Gladecover Scout, and 4x Kor Spiritdancer. That's the best creature base. Aura Gnarlid is bad, because it's 3 mana that just gets Path'd. As for enchantments: Ethereal Armor, Rancor, Hyena Umbra, Unflinching Courage, Daybreak Coronet (out of budget, but still awesome), and possibly Spirit Mantle should all be four-ofs. Keen Sense and Spider Umbra are also good. Path to Exile deals with things, and I personally like Mana Tithe to catch people off-guard. For lands: Brushland, Sunpetal Grove, and Razorverge Thicket are all pretty good without being too expensive. Temple Garden, Windswept Heath, and Horizon Canopy are expensive, but also really good.

There is absolutely no reason for Rancor not to be a 4-of, Spirit Mantle is better than trample, but Rancor also gives +2/+0 and is one less mana, which is huge because T1 Gladecover Scout, T2 Ethereal Armor, Rancor is devastating and allows for T3 wins with other Ethereal Armors. Spirit Mantle is good, but Rancor is better

CrovaxTheCursed I'd have to splash blue for Invisible Stalker I don't know if GWU would be spreading my color base too thin or not. I do have a play set of him though... and I'm really actually considering him...

jraynor that is actually what I've been considering. I like that someone else had that idea too. Rancor is just lac luster in this deck in my opinion. But oh how I wish I had the money for 4x Daybreak Coronet

Others have suggested that I put in a Gladecover Scout in place of my Phalanx Leader. I like how she is less "devoted" to her color and that she is a turn one drop with hexproof, What do you think of that?

SaSSolino8 Spirit Mantle has a bunch of little interaction that make it worth while. Granted this list is tuned from the last Modern season, even before Treasure Cruise, but it's still probably worth running some number of them.

  • While you do get trample from Rancor and Unflinching Courage, it's nice to bring the evasion up past 6 sources. Games that bogles loses tend to hinge on not finding lifelink and a proper application of chump blocking. See also Inkmoth Nexus killing you regardless.

  • As a 2 CMC card, it helps to insulate you from Engineered Explosives a little. While you can stack an umbra to save your bogle, having nothing left on them and getting Daybreak Coronet knocked off is still basically game over.

  • It also breaks the mirror match.

My recommendation, get rid of Rancor and finish the playset of Unflinching Courage. I find the lifelink to be worth it. Rancor is a great card but if you're using the Spirit Mantle instead of Rancor already, and in liue of really expensive cards like Daybreak Coronet.

I'm working on a bogle deck and you seem informed, so I have a question: why Spirit Mantle? you already have Rancor and Unflinching Courage for blockers, what's the point of avoiding them? Thanks.
