Cheap Buff-rage Poison counter deck.
Basically, here's an optimal hand, and my main strategy.
T1- Put out a forest, and a Glistener Elf.T2- Put out second Forest, Giant Growth on Glistener, Groundswell on Glistener(Since a land was put out, Landfall becomes +4/+4), Mutagenic on Glistener (for 2 health)making Glistener a 10/10 with infect on T2.Attack, win with 10 poison counters.
Everything else is basically to stall, or chip away with poison counters. Even if this hand isn't pulled, it's a pretty speedy win.Any suggestions? Please upvote if you like this deck! :D
Proliferate is great, but, I can't justify it with this deck. It's pure haste rage.
Your buffs count towards x. I'd also find a way to fit in Livewire Lash, which is amazing. (maybe Giant Growth -> Berserk and Mutagenic Growth -> Livewire Lash). Otherwise, looks pretty good. +1 Also, I love Invigorate, b/c the life doesn't even do anything for them. It's like a 0-mana Titanic Growth. :)
Those are both great card choices! And I had Livewire Lash in, but I'm trying to keep my deck size to near 60, and I'm really really on the fence with equipments. It takes near 4 manna to equip stuff, and I'd rather use that mana for buffs and win early, though... Artful Dodge is a wonderful must have addition. Runechanter's Pike is also great incase the game goes on longer than expected.
I'm curious if you have considered Yavimaya Coast for your mana base. Given that your deck is so fast, I think it makes sense to pay a little life to ensure you don't get mana screwed.
Also in the games I tried your deck in, I found I would often have allot of buffs and no creatures. You may want to try adding a Blight Mamba
Gitaxian Probe. You see your opponent's game-plan and/or if they have any counter-magic. And it also helps you find your kill cards quicker by digging deeper. I might even include Lotus Petals and Elvish Spirit Guides to speed up your kill. If you go that route, you gotta run Land Grant. You only need 1-2 lands to function properly, and I'd rather be drawing pump spells instead of additional lands. Manamorphose thins your deck, and filters your colors so you can support Assault Strobe, or whatever else you can think of. I'd start with getting 4 x Misty Rainforest though. Berserk is sickening combined with poison,, CHEERS!
