Hawtzoret the Furvert

Standard Aggro




The goal is to discard cards in order to pump up Flameblade Adept, or attack with lupine prototype and other aggressive cards. The deck either wins early or hopes for unblocked damage. Key to the city lets me get in for unblocked damage early while playing to the discard cards. Turn three combat celebrant with a key to the city can allow for a turn four Hazoret the Fervent swinging for massive damage. Olivia, Mobilized for War lets me discard cards, pump creatures, and attack fast, plus it has flying. I am testing Bloodhall Priest for its madness ability. A good combo: turn one Flameblade Adept, turn 2 Key to the City, turn 3 olivia using key again, turn four discard to Key to the City playing Bloodhall Priest for madness discarding a card to Olivia, Mobilized for War swinging with a 5/5 hopefully dealing 2 damage from triggers twice. Or turn four Hazoret the Fervent swinging with a 6/5. Soul-Scar Mage is in sideboard to deal with gods and Gideon.

Maybe I should run 4 Hazoret the Fervent since I can discard extras.

One issue this deck has is that everything wants to discard a card for profit.

You can't discard one card to meet all these conditions e.g. You can't discard the same card as part of the casting cost of Lightning Axe AND discard the same card to activate Key to the City. If you want both of those to work at the same time you often have to chose one of the other, because you can't afford to discard two cards, or just don't have enough cards left.

It might be worth taking out one of the cards that WANT to discard, for some more discard FODDER. Something like Abandon Reason, Alms of the Vein, or Distemper of the Blood.

I would try taking out 1x Flameblade Adept, 1x Furyblade Vampire, 1x Lupine Prototype, and 1x Key to the City. In their place I would try 4x Abandon Reason.

I played around with the land, because I was often unable to cast Olivia, Mobilized for War or Bloodhall Priest. Although you have a lot of cards, you have two cards that can be cast on Turn 3. I think you'd be better off with 10x Mountains and 6x Swamps.

The deck plays well. Bloodhall Priest and Lupine Prototype are both very good card choices. Hazoret the Fervent works extremely well in this shell.

+1 from me.

I've linked to this deck in my Sideboard notes.

It might end up driving some extra traffic your way, but will also tell people how to Board against you.

Let me know if you want me to remove the link.

I put some Alms of the Vein in sideboard. I replaced Sweltering Suns with another Fling.

That's a good choice.

It's an easy sub for Abandon Reason, if you need to deal extra damage to the Opponent and/or gain some life yourself.

I didn't answer your question above about how many Hazoret the Fervent you should have.

Since it works so well, I would run 4.

Opponents CAN get rid of her with Declaration in Stone, Oblivion Ring, or Final Reward, and they can also get rid of her with -1/-1 Counters.

So having a spare is not a bad thing.

I actually found that Bontu the Glorified was very tricky to put online.

I think that God is better in decks that generate a lot of Tokens, or have a lot of recurrence.

This deck has neither of those things. So I would take Bontu out and put another Hazoret in.

I added the fourth Hazoret the Fervent and replaced sideboard Bontu the Glorified with Lay Bare the Heart.

Added Magma Spray to sideboard after seeing a lot of zombie decks at my local store.
