Something I'm looking to play at GTC Gameday.

Turn 1. play mountain. cast legion swing for 1.

Turn 2. play land. cast burning-tree then lightning, swing for 5.

Turn 3 play land. cast either rancor or madcap swing for 7.(Opponent life is at 7.)

Turn 4. cast Hellrider. gg.

Suggestions are always welcome :) and the only thing I need to complete the deck is 3 more Hellriders, 2 burning-tree and the 4 shocklands.

Skullcrack over the searing spear only cuz it stops them from gaining life. and the trample from legion battalion is good enough for creature control. Siding the spear though.

Madcap is another ridiculous good card for low mana and i get a lot out of it just for that low mana.

Pillar is for that creature control or I can cast 2 for 4 damage to the face versus spending 2 mana for a spear.


Updates Add

Update #1: -4 Slaughterhorns/+4 Ash Zealots -3 Rancor/+3 Rakdos Crackler

Ended games faster with the ash zealots and cacklers. Madcap is still a great addition and still has great synergy with Legion Loyalist. Won more games when replacing the slaughterhorns and rancors with ash zealot and rakdos cackler.

Burning tree is still a great combo with lightning mauler turn 2 and come up about 65% of my games.
