Waves of Aggression Discussion

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.

Let's do this! I love Boros voltron.

Multiple attack phases:Waves of AggressionBreath of Fury + Assemble the LegionAggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine

Suggest this additional add to the Sunforger package Lapse of Certainty no one EVER expects the Boros Counterspell.

To give you a little assistance, the cards that let you untap your creatures in Red are:

Flying Crane Technique, Insurrection, World at War, Savage Beating, Fury of the Horde, Relentless Assault and Waves of Aggression.

Hopefully that also helps you.

Flagellum: I added Medomai, but I also added Savage Beating and Waves of Aggression because they trigger prowess, and are better than the other options.
