Almost a carbon copy of Aetherllama's deck
. I initially thought Stella was ideal but she's weak, her effect is only really powerful in a long, grindy game and we already have too many Renown units.
I honestly think this is the best possible Rakano Aggro list, all cards here are Best In Slot, you might look at stuff like Hammer of Might or Inquisitor's Blade and think "wow" but in the end both cost 4 mana and you must be careful with too many weapons. Shogun's Scepter and Ornate Katana are both essential to keep card advantage and units out as we lost Crownwatch Paladin and Kosul Battlemage for more powerful cards.
I also think the approach with Crest and Waystone is better than using Shugo Standards because we really need units and this is extremely aggressive so you don't want to skip any turns with depleted Shugos, Crest at least Scouts and gives you more consistency for Champion of Glory and Shogun's Scepter.
This might very well be Top Tier or at least an extremely good Tier 2, it also eats Skycrag alive.
