Single Scoop: Big Deck Energy (Explorer, Magic Arena)

Gameplan

So we got tired of losing to Angels and that led to us ending up on a card called Quakebringer, thanks to a wonderful viewer.

This naturally lead us down the path of playing Grixis Giants! Giants are extremely clunky but hopefully Fatal Push and Thoughtseize can slow our opponents down or strip them of their best card. Invasion of the Giants serves as a way for us to accrue value and speed out our giants like Calamity Bearer and Quakebringer. Speaking of Quakebringer, the card is sweet in a best of one format that has so much life gain. It especially shuts down angels and gets around annoying cards like Skyclave Apparition and enchantment removal since it's 5 mana. Good news is we can get it down on turn 4 in hopes that our Angel opponents haven't gained a billion life by then.

Conclusion

The deck isn't meant to be anything serious as you can tell, but it is funny to dunk on lifegain. However, we have no good match-ups as we're just hilariously slow. However, we get to be big giants and smash!

Thanks for watching the content.

The ladder hasn't been respecting fair Magic and is loaded with combos so it's time we keep them honest with some honest Magic :)
