Stick down a good threat that cares about your noncreature spells, then go to town with Opts, Lightning Strikes, and Blossoming Defenses to get the win. Any thoughts on the cards in the maybeboard?


Thank you guys so much for getting to 20 score and giving me all this feedback!

Why the energy concept? It seems quite out of place here. with only Aether Hub uses energy. I suggest you to switch it with Rootbound Crag. The deck seems solid. Good job. I think Captain Lannery Storm and Kari Zev, Skyship Raider Will work here fantastically. You should try it.

On energy, I'm not trying to get tons of energy, it's just a side effect of my Attune with Aethers, which is one of the best cards in the deck. The Aether Hubs are just there as a dual land that I can use in a pinch to make any color of mana.

Rootbound Crag:

This card seems like it would fit in here, I'm just not sure what to cut for it. I need all my basics for Attune with Aether, and I also need all of the current fastlands, and as mentioned before, the Aether Hubs.

Captain Lannery Storm and Kari Zev, Skyship Raider:

These two fall in the same category for me, which is an aggressive creature that can get in for a fair amount of damage, but they don't benefit at all from the 30 spells in the maindeck.

I have an Izzet prowess deck that has a similar idea, but control decks absolutely wreak havoc on it.

I think Deeproot Champion is just so susceptible to removal and stuff that you cant really rely on him. In theory it would be a great choice, but in actuality a non-revolt Fatal Push gets rid of him before he can even become a threat. Have you considered taking the green out altogether and instead using Glorybringer? He is just a much better and well rounded threat, and the green splashed in here is really all to protect and build Deeproot, which seems really hard to do and keep the card competitive. Most control decks, which are the most common type of standard deck Ive seen lately, will almost always counter or kill him. If you save him until you have extra mana to cast blossoming defense, he doesnt get big enough to be a threat anyways.

Just an idea, but perhaps Baral, Chief of Compliance would be good too instead of the splash for green.

On Baral and Glorybringer:

I think these cards are very powerful, but I don't think they fit as either too slow or not aggressive enough. For this reason I will be leaving in Deeproot Champion, though I will look for a replacement.

Harnessed Lightning would work well with the fact you are running 4x Attune with Aether. also, putting one or two Riddleform in the maindeck would be beneficial. have you considered Larger Than Life or Servant of the Conduit? I would also take out Cryptic Serpent

how about Kari Zev's Expertise? Seems like it would fit here, with mostly one drops and two drops... It's a great control card for a small amount of mana for a lots of value.

Ornge and nav566:

-Harnessed Lightning: This card I have considered quite a bit, but I value killing creatures with removal spells that can hit players as well, as usually one or two Shocks and Lightning Strikes are enough to finish off the game, and if my opponent resolves a big threat like Torrential Gearhulk, I've probably lost anyways.

-Riddleform: This card I've been considering for a while, I'm not sure how many I want in my deck though. I was thinking a 2-2 split with Deeproot Champion?

-Kari Zev's Expertise: This is a great idea for a sideboard against Ramunap Red. I'll put some in.

-Larger Than Life: I don't know if I want this card in as it can't be used at instant speed.

-Servant of the Conduit: This is going to have to be a no because of how it doesn't benefit from casting spells, and it's not that big.

Honestly I dont know bout your maybe board, but id take out Riddleform. Brute Strength and Sure Strike can help put some pressure on the opponent and ive always enjoyed throwing Onward / Victory in here. (Might as well use the energy)Theyre great for sideboard at least to make this a really awesome tempo deck.

Invigorated Rampage also is a great strong card as well.

Invigorated Rampage is good, but with only one creature out it doesn't work great against removal. I'll consider it though.
