Modern Mardu Warriors Tribal

Modern Aggro Budget RBW (Mardu) Tribal Weenie



This hyper aggro deck runs four aggressive two power one drops in Dragon Hunter Mardu Woe-Reaper Bloodsoaked Champion and Zurgo Bellstriker. At the two drop slot things get more interesting, with Blood-Chin Rager giving all our creatures menace, Glory-Bound Initiate going big, and Chief of the Edge and Honored Crop-Captain pumping up the teams power! Arashin Foremost gives herself and another creature double strike at the three slot, allowing us to push through massive damage and force bad trades. Finally the duo of Goblin Bushwhacker and Reckless Bushwhacker give us a hasty boost to power turns 3 and 4.

We're able to keep the deck budget while still being three color by running some fantastic five-color lands. First, the amazing Unclaimed Territory brought to us by Ixalan really makes the deck shine. Ancient Ziggurat is also great. The fact that its mana can only be used on creatures, but to avoid that as a problem we go all in on the creatures in this deck! Pain lands in Caves of Koilos and Battlefield Forge round things out -- though upgrading to the Kaladesh fast land versions in this color pair is recommended if they are in your budget!

One thing I like to do when brewing is figure out what an ideal turn sequence might look like. For this deck, an ideal turn sequence looks something like:

T1 play a 2/1

T2 Chief of the Edge (swing for 3)

T3 Arashin Foremost (buff one of the 3/x swing for 9, 12 total)

T4 Honored Crop-Captain + Reckless Bushwhacker (buff one of the 5/x, swing for 34, 46 total)
