So after a bunch more testing I have decided to make some changes to the deck. I think Heart might be a little clunky to run a 4 of. Especially with the 3 Crew cost. Also I have noticed that Glint-Sleeve Siphoner might actually be a boss in this deck since it has menace. So I am going to add 3 Glint-Sleeve Siphoner and 2 Aethersphere Harvester to the main deck and come down 3 Heart of Kiran, 1 Vicious Conquestidor, and 1 Ruin Raider. I will try it out this weekend for FNM and a local PPTQ and I will let you guys know what happens. In the mean time, what do you think about the changes?

With Approach decks I side in 3 Duress and 2 Lost Legacy, and sides out the removal. Then I play around Settle the Wreckage by only attacking with 1 or 2 creatures at a time. It has been effective. Fumigate just lets you use Scrapheap and Wanderer.

I agree about Vraska's Contempt. It's much better out of the side. I am updating the list to run Essence Extraction in place of it. I have lost a couple of games by hitting it off Ruin Raider.

It really is rediculously fast.

I do find myself siding out Conquistador a decent amount but I do believe it's good in the deck since it's (kind of) a 2 powered 1 drop. However I think Glint-Sleeve Siphoner would perform fine.

Wow! Number 2! Thanks everyone for the votes!

GamingAndy Ah I see, well in that case I feel like Heart is really good at applying pressure. With that being the case maybe something like Ammit Eternal. Also I have seen builds that run Supernatural Stamina. It is hard to replace a 2 mana 4/4 Flyer though.

Rex_JB24 Maybe as a 1 of, instead of Aethersphere Harvester but do you really want to waste your turn 3 in an aggro deck playing Bontu's Monument when you should be bashing? I just don't see it. But I see where your head is at.

GamingAndy Why would you want to replace Heart of Kiran?

triproberts12 I dig man. I am all about Ruin Raider in this deck since everything is so cheap. How do you feel about the life damage between him and Siphoner?

backinajiffy Board wipes can be a little painful but it bounces right back when you can bring back Scrapheap Scrounger and Dread Wander. The idea is to race the board wipes for sure!
