Perhaps adding Wall of Tanglecord in lieu of your Fling s would be helpful as an aggro deck could likely do some unseemly amounts of damage before you can land more than one or two creatures considering that your cheapest is still 3CMC. Just my two cents, good luck with the deck!
Yeah. He's pricey, but only because he's such a ridiculous creature. My friend has a Naya-colored Flicker deck with Acidic Slime , Huntmaster of the Fells Flip , and Restoration Angel , among other things. After seeing it in action, I can safely say that it's a very underrated strategy right now.
In order to win the game without setting off Slumbering Dragon 's ability to block, you would have to deal 5damage per turn, if Intrepid Hero is down than he is going to destry all creatures who can do at least 4 damage per turn, For this example lets say that there are no other abilities in play
Huh well I guess that works. Feels like a weak argument though. Don't get me wrong, they're both good cards, just seems weird to say they work well together. Would still consider Ring of Valkas though, at least in the sideboard since you have room. Allows you to pump dragons, give haste, and helps against control since they won't be attacking much and your dragons won't gain counters.
Intrepid Hero ? Really?
Most decks don't even play with creatures that have Power 4 or higher. That, and he dies to every single removal spell in Standard.
I'd just run card:Gideon's Avenger over him, honestly, if creature control is what you want. Or Fiend Hunter , but Fiend Hunter is better for Aggro decks that will likely win before the Hunter will be destroyed. In a slower control deck, Fiend Hunter will almost always be destroyed by turn-5, especially since you have no way of protecting him.
Have you considered Cavern of Souls ? Naming Humans on one covers half of your creatures, or naming Giants might just win you the game.
