Great idea. I think I will try it with Heightened Reflexes instead, because the first strike persists. But I may go with Weapon Surge in the end.

griffstick thanks!! It's not among my top 5 favorites yet, but maybe after playing it some it will be!

Think of Heightened Reflexes as a Reflexes but at instant speed. I really value first-strike because it makes Falthis the best blocker around and a protected attacker if need be. Downhill Charge and Mercadia's Downfall are nice but there's no guarantee I can get them to +5, which is the magic number. I have Sadistic Glee. Mirage Mirror is such a cool card and I'll probably throw it in, yeah.

No worries on the triple post! I'm glad you like the deck and have suggestions! Thank you!

Daedalus19876 Thanks! Do it!

This is by far my most favorite deck you have built. I just wish I had come up with it first. +1 from me. I don't like Heightened Reflexes.

Traded out Sure Strike for Heightened Reflexes . I like being able to leave First Strike behind.

Heat Shimmer >> Intimidation Bolt so I can kill one of my tokens and not have an enemy attack me. (Also politics)

Mana Geode >> Grafted Exoskeleton for infect damage. I have enough rocks as it is.

Cut Sun Titan even though he was as foil :( for Tethmos High Priest .

Cut Fabled Hero because he's kind of selfish, isn't he? Replaced with Livewire Lash .

Someday will replace Renegade Tactics with a similar instant that gives me draw. But not this day. Not this day.
