Description

Ever feel like Red-White is just the worst: the only legendary creatures it gets are combat tricks (Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Basandra, Battle Seraph, or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight). Your right that's all we'll ever get. The only problem is they aren't Aggro enough!

Enter Akiri, Line-Slinger.

A two drop 0/3? That's awful how could you ever win? Well Commander is a format of artifacts and every artifact powers her. Sol Ring, Ancient Den, and Swiftfoot Boots those are your weapons.

Your opponents will be very worried about a turn 2 commander with Voltron powers...As they should be. Select either the opponent who will combo first and win, or who ever is the greatest threat to you (think who at the table plays Grave Pact, Fleshbag Marauder or similar effects). The one gruesome thing about this deck is you can't share the love. No matter how much your friends complain if they are at 1 Akiri, Line-Slinger damage: they are marked for death.

Once you have hexproof, protection, or trample you are practically guaranteed the kill.

But what about Bruse? He's not just a pretty face and mustache (he also keeps your deck at 98 cards). Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder gives Akiri double strike and the ability to gain an absurd amount of life. However more often than not your opponents will have answers for Akiri. So how can a commander damage deck win? Use another commander. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder does not scale as quickly as Akiri in this deck, but he can always have double strike and lifelink. Note since these are SEPARATE commanders their damages do not stack (15 Akiri + 6 Bruse kill)

If you one v one: you will win. In multiplayer you can be a major threat and simply be sure to finish every player you start.

Also yes this deck runs Sword of Body and Mind above its three better siblings. Akiri having protection from white or red prevents a one hit K.O. with Bruse.

For Boros, for the Legion, for GLORY!
