I wanted to make a Naya deck that didn't focus primarily on Boros Reckoner /Thragtusk/Huntmaster of the Fells   etc, all of the cookie cutter cards found in every Naya deck. What I came up with was a pump deck based around Wild Defiance and double strike creatures. It basically works like the old pump infect, where the goal is to do 10 damage in a single blow, but a double strike creature instead of an infect creature .

I'm looking for any way to improve the deck and make it competitive, so please all and any comments are welcome, I want to know what the community can come up with.

The God Hand

T1 Arbor Elf
T2 Fencing Ace --- Rancor
T3 Giant Growth + Giant Growth + Bloodrush Ghor-Clan Rampager = 13 trample double strike.

Ok so after playing with Wild Beastmaster and Sigarda, Host of Herons in the MB for a while, I've decided to swap them out for more double strike creatures. Beastmaster is out because it encourages me to over extend, trying to get as many creatures on the field to benefit from her buff. And Sigarda is out just for being too slow and expensive, she has only been moved to the SB though as she will still be essential against black control.

In their place Markov Blademaster & Hound of Griselbrand, I have had to change the mana base to accommodate them as they are difficult to cast, but I feel having 10 double strike creatures in the MB will make it more consistent.

Hound of Griselbrand is also basically a placeholder for when Savageborn Hydra gets released.
