Sideboard Guide Standard - Deck Gruul Adventures from HG Team

Today we'll talk about the Gruul Adventures Aggro deck from the player NH, that did 7-2 on US$ 5000 Kaldheim Championship Qualifier from Star City Games

Hello everyone! It's HGTeam here again! Let's go straight to the decklist of the player NH: [deck](69315) Everyone know that Gruul is one of the strongest and fastest decks of the format. Maybe it's the number 1 choice among the players. Although it is a deck that appears to be very easy to pilot, don't fool yourself! It requires a high keep quality, bolder mulligans and especially the right sequencing of spells. Now let's see how the deck should behave against the most important decks of the Standard format and that I played in the Star City Games tournament. [center]{VS Mono-Green Food} Out: [cardside](1 Vivien, Monsters' Advocate || 2 Fire Prophecy) In: [cardside](2 The Akroan War || 1 Soul Sear) In the draw we can also add 2 [[Wilt]] to the deck. In this match the inefficient removals and Vivien come out, precisely because it is a match that you want to put as much pressure as possible, and in the mid to late game the match is not in your favor. In play, we use [[The Akroan War]] and we do not put the 2 [[Wilt]], precisely to not be reactive, but to take the initiative of the match. [center]{VS Doom Foretold} Out: [cardside](2 Fire Prophecy || 1 Embercleave || 2 The Great Henge || 1 Vivien, Monsters' Advocate) In: [cardside](2 Ox of Agonas || 2 Phoenix of Ash || 2 Wilt) In this match the removals and cards of higher CMC come out, and creatures with Escape and artifact removals, or enchantments, go in. The goal is to keep an explosive hand to not get caught on the clock of [[Doom Foretold]]. [center]{VS Rogues} Out: [cardside](2 Embereth Shieldbreaker // Battle Display || 3 Embercleave || 4 Lovestruck Beast || 1 Edgewall Innkeeper) In: [cardside](3 Klothys, God of Destiny || 1 Vivien, Monsters' Advocate || 2 Phoenix of Ash || 2 Ox of Agonas || 2 Scorching Dragonfire) In this match the keycards are Klothys and the cards with Escape. It must be kept in mind that Klothys is a priority to cast as it has the potential to close the match in your favor. [center]{VS Gruul Adventures} *Play * Out: [cardside](1 Fire Prophecy || 1 Vivien, Monsters' Advocate) In: [cardside](2 The Akroan War) *Draw* Out: [cardside](1 Vivien, Monsters' Advocate || 3 Scavenging Ooze || 2 Embercleave || 1 The Great Henge) In: [cardside](2 Scorching Dragonfire || 2 The Akroan War || 1 Soul Sear || 2 Wilt ) This match is very objective: On the draw, you must focus on being more reactive, responding to threats in the best possible way; In play, you should try to open it in an explosive way and not stop putting pressure. [center]{Conclusion} That's it guys, above are the 4 most frequent matches in the tournaments we play. Gruul is a great choice and we leave it here as a suggestion for you who have not yet chosen your list for this new Standard. See you soon!
