Waves of Aggression Discussion

Rusty_Shackleford on Kaalia's air sovereignty

Needs fetchlands, at least the on-color ones (Arid Mesa, Marsh Flats, etc.) and Hall of the Bandit Lord. High Market and Volrath's Stronghold are good utility. Ancient Tomb is an upgrade from Temple of the False God. Baffled by the lack of both Sol Ring and Strip Mine, which are EDH staples.

Sword of Feast and Famine and Aggravated Assault can create an infinite loop that flat out ends the game. Waves of Aggression and Aurelia, the Warleader produce the same effect albeit on a non-infinite scale.

I'd also recommend adding some cheap threats such as Baneslayer Angel, Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Thundermaw Hellkite, or Stormbreath Dragon so you have something to do early on if Kaalia gets nerfed.

My list if you're looking to see how you might put everything together/what you might end up cutting.

Consider Waves of Aggression. Repeatable additional combat steps are always amusing.

You also can try out Legion Loyalist, Hero of Bladehold, Aegis of the Gods, Loxodon Gatekeeper, and Tajic, Blade of the Legion.

Aurelia, the Warleader, despite not being a soldier, can allow your soldiers to pack more punch, and can allow Battalion cards to trigger twice, such as the aforementioned Tajic. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight can also double the pain.

Odric, Master Tactician (aka "Captain No-Blocks") is one of my favorite creatures for a token deck. Crusader of Odric is nice as well.

Speaking of Aurelia, you also can throw in a bunch of cards that give additional combat phases, such as Savage Beating, Aggravated Assault, World at War, Waves of Aggression, Relentless Assault, etc.

For some more tribal staples, you can put in Obelisk of Urd, Coat of Arms, Adaptive Automaton, Brass Herald, etc.

I've always been a big fan of angels, so have an upvote for that. :D

Card suggestions, Hero of Bladehold lets you hit harder with a couple of tokens, and gains a battlecry per combat phase you attack, so you can get 2/3 battlecry triggers depending on how well you draw extra combat step cards. Aggravated Assault lets you get a number of extra combat steps, assuming you have spare mana around. Waves of Aggression is another good combat steps card, assuming you have a few spare lands in your hand.

I'm in love with this deck. I played it for the first time with Selvala (grouphug), Depala (never saw that one, it was a very aggressive Vehicle deck) and Erebos.

Selvala made a deal with Depala, who was attacking Erebos early, to finish me off after Erebos and before her. And so she helped her out with Archangel of Strife, Selvala, Explorer Returned, and so on. The Vehicle deck got so much fuel it eliminated Erebos around turn 6 with a Speedway Fanatic and Heart of Kiran, buffed by the Archangel, then Depala turned to attack me.

Fortunately, on my turn 6, I attacked Depala (who was tapped out) with Narset and was that a great trigger. I put Indestructibility on Narset, as well as Steel of the Godhead, I put Strionic Resonator onto the battlefield and cast Temporal Mastery.

Next turn, I cast Oblivion Ring from my hand and copy it with Strionic Resonator, exiling two potential blockers of Depala. Then, I use my Scroll Rack (which helped me immensely after being cast turn 5... thankfully it survived a full circle), and put very good spells on top. And Narset allows me to cast them for free as she swings for lethal commander damage - I cast Expropriate, stealing the biggest creature of Depala and the Archangel of Strife, then I cast Waves of Aggression followed by Izzet Signet and Beacon of Tomorrows. In the next combat, I put Elspeth, Knight-Errant onto the battlefield and cast Fury of the Horde as I attack, allowing me to buff Narset and kill Selvala with commander damage next combat.

I'm certain I will face a lot more hate the next time I play, but this deck can have such explosive turns it's ridiculous. Even if you attack just once, you can win the game off of that one attack. And I love it. I really do.

Anything special from Amonkhet you're considering for this deck?

Jamiemac: Thanks! :)

I did run Aggravated Assault at one point, and it's a powerful card. I ended up choosing Waves of Aggression instead because it is still useful after being discarded to Wheel of Fortune or my opponent's Leovold, Emissary of Trest, but I do love that combo :)

Also I just bumped into Waves of Aggression on Gatherer and I was reminded of Retrace, which might be something to look into.Thanks for letting me throw ideas around. I love this deck idea 'cause it's totally my style. :)

Waves of Aggression could work well in this potentially.
