UndeadxPenguins on Mardu Aristocrats

I have my own build of Mardu Aristocrats & I am very impressed with it. It has a likelyhood of beating every popular deck in the meta. I would recommend taking out Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Midnight Reaper , Teysa Karlov , 2 Dreadhorde Butcher , & putting in a fully playset of Priest of Forgotten Gods & Hero of Precinct One . I would also recommend taking out Gutterbones & replacing him with Reassembling Skeleton since he combos off so much better & costs 1 less total mana overall to bring him back. Would also recommend Heartfire since it can win the game on the spot, as well as Liliana, Dreadhorde General . She is a win condition. I'd also recommend putting in a playset of Pitiless Pontiff since she is a fantastic sac outlet. A one of for the Split card Revival / Revenge is good too. Just some suggestions.

since you have this aristocrats theme going on in the deck as well you could try Revival / Revenge

Instead of a Stomping Ground , which I don’t see being of any use game one, why not run a Sacred Foundry ? It’d make Revival / Revenge easier to cast/cast-able on both ends.

Hey MizzMizz, I am guessing this deck includes your own life gain. Aetherflux Reservoir is a auto include. Blood Tribute is also a great card. Revival / Revenge is also great. Exsanguinate is a very good auto include. Serra Avatar . Beacon of Immortality and Vizkopa Guildmage .

Hi MgStrange and Shyvana_!

At the moment the deck formula is a little in standby until I can test a bit further. As spoilers were rolling, the changes appeared to be evident, but now that the full spoiler is out, I'm not sure what direction to ( Dreadhorde Butcher was there for a while and then got cut). The thing is that this list is an Aggro deck with "dies" synergies mostly. But with Cruel Celebrant a more combo-oriented version of the deck is possible. With a Hunted Witness , two Celebrants and a Teysa, you win the game if you play Massacre Girl on turn 5! It's 20 points of damage!

Anyway, for this iteration of the deck I do like Tibalt, Rakish Instigator in the Sideboard against control. On the other hand, I don't think Angrath, the Flame-Chained is that good in an Aggro deck, I like it more in Midrange decks. Also I don't like Heartfire in this deck. I do see it being played in Mono-Red but here it's not that great, I rather the removal to be unconditional, like Mortify . Also there's a ton of sacrifice effects with Plaguecrafter and Priest of Forgotten Gods . Another consideration is that Hero of Precinct One isn't that good in the deck. I'd rather play Dreadhorde Invasion which gives you a token every turn for sure and it doesn't push you to multicolours so hardly (I feel less bad cutting multicolor spells for Bontu).

Other interesting inclusions are God-Eternal Bontu which you can play, and with her trigger on the stack, you sacrifice Bontu and draw it again! Finally Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord makes all the things that Revival / Revenge does, but better!

Anyway, thanks a lot to you both for the comments! You helped a bunch!

So here is my update Gidgetimer. I am adding Drogskol Reaver , and dropping Severed Strands . The cards like Revival / Revenge is mostly for ending the game, and Blood Tribute . Generally my group isnt like, u could say luke super competetive. I like to say we are newbies. I am prob keeping Counterlash . I might change it out later. I thought it might be interesting. Seal Away I also going out. So here is the final.

Severed Strands - - Drogskol Reaver

Disperse - - Mastermind's Acquisition

Wing Shards - - Manalith .

Seal Away - - Prismatic Lens


I don't know about Swords to Plowshares . I am going to make big changes over time. Thx for commenting.
