Single Scoop: Button Mashing With Gruul (Standard)

Game Plan

As the ol' saying goes, "No Breaks, All Spacebar." Well, I'm not sure that's a saying yet, but we're trying to make it so. We don't block, we only attack the face. Right now, Gruul is pretty good at doing that with a plethora of haste threats. We're jamming everything we can that has haste and then close out with our late game finishers.

These two four drops will hopefully turn all of our dinky threats into big beefy threats which will help us get around The Meathook Massacre. Our worst match up is probably mono black but we're hoping to prey on the decks looking to beat Mono Black by getting them dead or close to dead by turn 4 or 5.

Shivan Devastator is a card I loved going into spoiler season as it seems like a sweet card that can carve out any part of the curve we need it on. This card will help us fly over any ground units and be a burst of damage when we need it! I've been treating this card almost like a Spark Trooper that can fly, and I've loved it so far!

Conclusion

The deck really struggles with Sheoldred but outside of that, the deck was able to steal so many games with aggression. If you're looking to fulfill your aggro player's heart, this is the closest we can probably get to an aggro deck. As of right now aggro is a tier 1.5 to tier 2 strategy. However, NO BREAKS AND ALL SPACEBAR. Mash away and go for face!

Thanks for watching the content.

Single Scoop: An Honest Heartflame Burn Deck

With graveyard hate being needed. Can Cemetery Gatekeeper and an honest burn deck deal enough damage?

Much Abrew: Teaching Greedy Pioneer Players about Basic Lands

Land destruction in Pioneer sounds like a silly plan—Wizards stopped printing good land destruction way before Pioneer came to be. But can the greed of Arena players running almost no basic lands make it possible? Let's see!
