THIS IS MY AGGRO DECK! for those you who are familiar with the world of legacy, I'm sure you've been made aware of how dominant blue control decks have become. This is my answer to the awful crisis that is blue control.

I am looking for a little help with the deck as far as opinions go, changing numbers of certain cards, etc. i used the deck to win a recent tournament at my local magic store, and did it with relative ease against some very good opponents and their very good (blue) decks.

this deck, strong as it may be, is very week to combo decks, degde decks, and unfair decks (reanimator, sneak and show, etc.) so that is where i am looking for some criticism in the deck build

this is an aggro deck, so please do not request Grove of the Burnwillows + Punishing Fire although many do not share my opinion in this matter, i feel the combo is too slow for what i want and easily disrupted.

one last thing, the side board is pretty bias to the metagame of the store i play at, so it may not work for everyone

thank you! and LONG LIVE LEGACY!!!1!!

I like it, but four DRS seems excessive to me. Three makes sense in my head.

thank you CharlesMandore for your comment! DRS is consistently used for acceleration in this deck and i usually don't mind having many out for its many uses. and with the amount of fetch lands i use, i am always keeping myself a turn ahead with DRS

look like the jund midrange who was playing in modern two year ago. This deck was pretty fun to face but he is far too slow for legacy. You should think about swaping red for blue and using Shardless Agent instead of bloodbraid elf and find something to swap lightning bolt

marcandr,the idea is to combat the blue control decks that plague my local store.. and for several months now, it has been placing 1st and 2nd place consistently.. I couldn't bring myself to splash blue!.. Bloodbraid Elf is so incredibly awesome! she gets me any other card in the deck whereas, Shardless Agent would not. Lightning Bolt is far to good for me to not play it in this deck! its a great defensive card and a powerful cascade target despite its low mana cost (3 for 1? it speaks for itself). but i do honestly appreciate your idea! i had actually considered making this a four color deck with blue splashed originally.

I agree, Blue has become a kind of a crisis in Legacy. It's as if people only want to do the "safe route" instead of taking risks. And for me, deckbuilding in Legacy is the one format you canpretty much do anything you want. There's a hell of a wide variety of cards and many possible decks to create, but everything nowadays is Blue.

This is why i, as well, chose to ride Blue-less on Legacy. +1 for the deck.

@Yuri200X, its good to finally see someone in my corner! or at least someone who thinks they can build a deck without Force of Will and Brainstorm. thank you!

Yep, that's exactly what i think. In fact, I've abandoned a BU Reanimator for a BR Reanimator because it got boring resorting to FoW all the time. And despite what most people think, it runs actually well. It's not a Tier 1 deck, neither a Tier 1.5, but it is a powerful Tier 2 and i like it :D

Traded Force of Will for Unmask, Careful Study for Faithless Looting and Show and Tell for Stronghold Gambit, and that's it... >.<
