BUG Proliferators

Pauper

maigray


BUG Proliferators aims to get some weenies out early and grow them via Thrummingbird and proliferate. Mana fixing includes Abundant Growth as well as two cards that benefit from proliferating, Fertilid and Pentad Prism.

MULLIGAN INSTRUCTIONS: Game 1: You need blue and green in your opening hand. Black plus another color is only ok if that other color allows you to play 2 spells in your hand. If you can't see mana to cast a turn 2 and 3 play, send it back. For game 2, if you bring in more black cards and the swamp, perhaps keep more opening hands with black as long as a second color you can use on turn 3 or 4 is there. This deck will die because I stupidly made it BUG instead of Simic. Greed is not good, kids.

T1: Cloudfin Raptor or Skyshroud Ridgeback

T2: Thrummingbird or at least Skarrgan Pit-Skulk

T3: Another creature or a mana fixer.

T4: Protect your creatures and grow them. Play another Thrummingbird anytime you get it. In a pinch you can play Hunger of the Howlpack even without morbid as long as you can reliably proliferate the single counter.
