Benefactor's Draught untaps all your creatures, draws you a card, and discourages blocking. As a note, you pretty much have to play this card after you declare attackers, but before the declare attackers phase ends--once they declare blockers, you will not get additional card draw.

Explore gives some ramp and draws you a card.

Viridescent Wisps is a 1 mana combat trick that also draws you a card. It isn't great, but would be passable in a casual, budget deck.

Abundant Growth is another 1 mana card that draws a card, and provides minimal mana fixing. Again, not great, but could find a place in this deck.

Unlife on sick red deck yo

I've both played and played against a few different versions of this deck and they are glass cannons, especially with such a low creature count and lack of evasion. So I'm going to throw a wall of text at you, hopefully it will help. Assuming a turn-1 kill with this deck, especially off the draw is crazy. You may get it once in a while but assume your deck will win turns 3-4 normally

First off, manabase. This deck has no basics and even with all the red pump spells, it will fold in half to Blood Moon or enchantments like Spreading Seas. Add in a few basics of each and some fetch lands (reason for those later)

Your creature ratio, you need more. Minimum, you should have 15-16. Consider Kiln Fiend, Soul-Scar Mage, Blistercoil Weird and Abbot of Keral Keep

You need more evasion on your creatures, right now even with a god hand, if I throw down a blocker, nothing happens. Mainboard the Apostle's Blessing and ignore your life total. Think of the deck like infectless infect. Cards to consider adding as well are Temur Battle Rage, Rancor and Become Immense, with how fast your graveyard should fill up, especially if you add fetchlands

Finally card draw, you have none, you need it. Street Wraith, Manamorphose, Crimson Wisps and Viridescent Wisps all help with that.

I hope this helps

I'd start dropping/trading spells before cutting anymore creatures.

Could sideboard the 'defensive' spells (Path to Exile, and a mixture of Blossoming Defense/Gods Willing) until you need them... For more Heroic bodies... as a creature-beatdown deck, it still seems a tad light... Vanguard of Brimaz can help you go wide... Dawnbringer Charioteers is a bit high on the curve, but lifelink is nice...

Also, I found a few more spells to consider. Defiant Strike, Viridescent Wisps. These cantrips could help you cycle through your deck a little faster to get to more spells to cast... I know you're already fairly packed... but more options!... Options are never bad.

@HotRodScott I will add Viridescent Wisps to the maybe board. Defo worth considering.

And ty for the kind words. I'm glad you like the primer! I hope it helped.

Did you find the secret song?

Awesome! I've been playing pauper infect for a while and just revisited it to pull in Gitaxian Probe (now that it's not $5 online) and saw your write-up and it's awesome! Your build is pretty tight, but one of the cards I had in my pauper version was Viridescent Wisps. Not much of a pump, but the card draw was nice. I was experimenting with mainboarding it vs. Ranger's Guile. Great job! Thanks for the write-up!

Setessan Oathsworn, Bond Beetle, Bramblewood Paragon will probably be still under power 4 in early game and Epic Confrontation is just 1 power less for the ability to play it any time i want even without power 4.

Overwhelming Stampede is a bit too slow and will only have a great effect if i got many creatures out, that is not happening often in lategame. Also it doesnt target anything so no heroic triggers.

Rancor is a good one and it is pretty handy because its reusable but its hard to find a slot where it is fitting right without removing power and versatility.

Bear Umbra also a bit clunky and just too slow if it gets countered or my creature get removed iam fucked without Vines of Vastwood in 5th turn.

Viridescent Wisps i will surely put this card into the maybeboard because i usually play izzet and cantrips are live but i dont know what to cut exactly maybe 1 card of each fight spell.

But thanks for the suggestions.

For the pic you just have to format and type things like that:

$===accordion$===panel:[$[symbol:G]$] $Heroic Counter Fight Club** [$[symbol:G]$] $

(Inspired by [$[deck:2020-trampling-centaurs-wurm-punching-to-victory]$] from [$[user:Sagarys]$])

Hey Guys,

the goal of this deck is to play heroic creatures or creatures working with +1+1 counters and fight or pump spells to increase the size and work on a beat down.


the picture is just something to click on it and to "hide" the text and spice things a bit up. Just remove all dollar signs had to break it because it would have displayed the same. I hope that helps.

I love the heroic ability, some different things to try could be

Savage Punch over Epic Confrontation as your stuffs gonna be 4 power anyway

Overwhelming Stampede for mega buff

Rancor heroic/decent buff for 1/trample/return to hand

Bear Umbra for mana ramp/buff/totem armor

Viridescent Wisps small buff/card draw/heroic trigger/cantrip

unrelated, how do you get the picture on the box in the description (i found a few ways but none of them worked sadly)
