Banding Rampage

Commander / EDH



So after kicking around my previous rampage deck I decided to change to partner commanders. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder is great because I can use him to give creatures like Elvish Berserker double strike, and with a lure attached it's like giving them +2/+2 instead of +1/+1. This makes my deck more consistent than Samut, rampage, and multiple combat steps, which relied heavily on tutors to grab the piece of the puzzle needed to function.

So what is the strategy?

1-Ramp hard

2-Dump something(hopefully big) with rampagey abilities(A la Gabriel Angelfire)

3-attach a lure like effect to said creature(A la Lure)

3.5-give it trample if it doesn't already have it(Primal Rage anyone?)

4-smash face and hope your creature doesn't die to all of theirs

Some helpful inclusions include:

Varchild's War-Riders: trample and rampage 1 make it good already, but the cumulative upkeep really helps enable it. a few turns and you'll be having opponents BEGGING not to receive tokens.

NOTE: The inherent weakness of the deck is how slow it is to build the required boardstate. It needs help being faster, but I don't know how to do that... still a fun deck to play and pretty satisfying to use when it does work
