Thoughtseize). However, the Mono-Green version is solid, fast and fearsome.
Rhonas the Indomitableand
Ghalta, Primal Hungerare very strong and several times you will just need a turn with one of them on the field to finish the game. In addition, you have
The Great Hengeto speed up your draws and buff your creatures. It is a very interesting and competitive deck.
Mutavault. However, you can get around that and start having fun without these staples, although the deck will certainly suffer without these cards. The dynamics between
Sorin, Imperious Bloodlordand some creatures in the deck is very strong and you are able to win games just by using this strategy.
Eidolon of the Great Revel. However, the two sets of these two cards exceed 60tix in MTGO, causing the deck to be more expensive. Still, you can play with a competitive and fun version, capable of seizing matches with
Hazoret the Ferventor
Boros Charm. It is an underestimated deck in format but, aside from major tournaments, it always works. Its version with the staples of the format (Soul-Scar and the Eidolon) appears constantly in the 5-0 weekly MTGO Leagues.
Rotting Regisauras a highlight, in addition to putting some good black cards on the sideboard, ensuring more interaction possibilities for the deck. Of the lower cost decks, this is my favorite by far, and it is certainly quite solid.
Magmatic Channelerand the Izzet dual-lands, this deck has resurfaced in the metagame in a new version that has been doing great competitively. You just need to assemble it and play, and adjust it gradually. Every set brings new excellent cards of both of these colors that can make the deck shine even more.
Spell Quellerand 2 copies of
Selfless Spirit, which are the most expensive cards here. With these exceptions, the rest is the classic list, which always appears in the Top 8 of Challenges and other tournaments. A solid option for those looking for an Aggro deck, it is full of potential in each card, but it requires the player's attention to play the creatures in the right order and in the right way.
Shark Typhoon, which would make the deck cost more than 100 TIX. I personally started playing with this list and the results were very good. This deck is extremely fun (at least for those who play with it, not the opponents!), interactive, recursive and it demands a lot from the player. For those who don't want to play with an Aggro deck, this is an excellent option.
Thoughtseize, but just as solid. Excellent option if you want to play competitively while spending little.
General Kudro of Drannith, is already costing almost 13 TIX, which makes its use in a cheaper deck unfeasible. Still, the logic of the deck is the same as the White Weenie deck, but using good Orzhov and black cards in the maindeck and in the sideboard, making it more solid. It is worth assembling this list and waiting for a possible drop in the price of General Kudro in MTGO until you can buy at least 2 copies and add them to the deck, leaving it exactly as the most famous and strong version. With so many options at reduced cost that work greatly and make competitive results, it is worth studying these lists, watching gameplays with them and then choose the one you like best. The important thing is not to go without playing this new and well diversified non-rotating format!
