Alpine Houndmaster

Creature — Human Warrior

When Alpine Houndmaster enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a card named Alpine Watchdog and/or a card named Igneous Cur, reveal them, put them into your hand, then shuffle your library.

Whenever Alpine Houndmaster attacks, it gets +X/+0 until end of turn, where X is the number of other attacking creatures.

The only issue I have with this deck is that once it gets going your turns take quite a long time. Sometimes you just play solitaire and then win. Because my playgroup is small I limit how frequently I play this deck. I busted it out again last week over webcam. No one dealt with Morophon and I drew into Chulane at the perfect time. I also had Experimental Frenzy and Cream of the Crop out and it was essentially game over. I rarely win with any other deck but this one keeps on delivering. It’s too slow for super competitive metas but in a more casual meta, look out.

I added a couple of new cards from Core 21. Alpine Houndmaster and Obsessive Stitcher. The Houndmaster is free and the Stitcher is cheap to cast with Morophon out. They both allow me to deal with the top of my library which is really the most important thing you need for this deck. This deck is crazy good and the steady flow of potential new (and cheap) pieces to try out is super fun too.

Hi Shayda!!!

Dude those dragons are doing so well (when no one wipes them)!

Did you want a similar deck? 'Cuz that's what you've got here... but I think you should lean into go-wide-aggro > midrange and play more 1-2 cmc creatures and move all your ramp to 2 (Rampant Growth, signets, etc).

I'd also recommend Golgari Charm, Boros Charm, and Heroic Intervention.

Tribal decks have so much flavor! Hope this helps, maybe we'll see it next weekend? :o

I'm 50/50 on moving mana rocks around. I'll do more testing and see what I think too. There are also more changelings that I could toss in before I start going for Igneous Cur mostly because it's the generic fire-breathing effect. I get that It's for Alpine Houndmaster to have 2 targets to find, but realistically that's not much of a payoff for 3 deck slots.

do you think it would be worth is to get Alpine Houndmaster and Igneous Cur for the extra card advantage and plus you also get those tokens as a bonus
