This is my take on Rankle and how far "Group Hug" goes in the least huggy color, Mono Black!


  • Group Slug Discard
  • Group Hug Draw
  • Drawing/Discarding = damage
  • Slight Reanimation

This was originally a Tinybones deck, but I was advised I would likely instantly be Archenemy. Rankle became the new leader with almost none of the deck changing. The plan is simple. Draw and discard lots of cards, and watch your opponents' life slowly tick down, like the hugging a boa constrictor.

The side board were easy cuts from the first draft. The Maybe Board are cards that were difficult choices that I may add back in later.
