Tried a version of this deck first thing when set 5 hit with not great results. With all the new cards to play with plus drafting, it took me a while to come back to the list.
Made a lot of changes based on what Ilyon posted with his FTP list. Mainly, switching to Jennev Merchant
s from Ixtun Merchant
s really helped the deck out. Especially right now there's barely anyone playing Vara right now, so the Aegis is very relevant. Also we get to put Burn them All in the market, so we don't really miss out on having Obliterate for that extra reach. Plus since we're playing with time, we get access to equivocate, so ya, Jennev Merchants are obviously the best choice.
I feel like the 1-drops are really vital for getting in early damage so your burn spells can easily close out the game. I think it's a lot more in line with what the deck is trying to accomplish vs Darya, Warrior Poet
Also, I don't really like Resolute Monk
outside of Combrei. I found myself in situations where I had the choice between monk or one of the other 2 drops on turn 2, and it almost always felt more correct to drop a dusk raider or get in with a champion of fury. And following up on t3 with monk isn't really ideal. Anyways, I axed him.
The final change I made was cutting Shugo Standard
and adding Mortar
. The powerbase is already clunky enough for an aggro deck, I didn't want more depleted power that only gives one color. Plus I think we already have plenty of ways to spend our power when we get to 5, and we even have a couple Mighty Strikes
that give us a similar effect.
If you like playing burn in mtg, then I think this might be the list for you. Give it a shot, let me know what you think in the comments!
