Picked up Affinity back in November and have loved playing it but decided to tech it out a bit. Last 5 tournaments:
Before i post my build, yes it is different than traditional affinity but in my meta it really puts in work because 90% of my Meta is slaughtered by a t1 Chalice for 1, not to mention all the other lines of play this build has. Not saying it is for every meta but Trawler is insane in this particular build.
So many lines of play but basically you asap get either:
1) Ravager/Trawler going- This allows you to sack 0 cost to ravager then recur them, its why chalice doesnt hurt you because you can sack it, play what you want, then recur and recast it. same with EE, Opal for mana, Citadel for an extra mana, crypt to screw goyfs over and over
2) Map/Fair/Crucible- Go grab the bullets you need to win the game, thinning your deck of lands, and if trawler is out everytime you map you can get a 0 cost back to EE/Chalice/+1 Ravager.
So yes the build is different, but it is badass, and i suggest you play atleast 2-3 matches just for fun to see what you guys think. So many decks it shuts down and just completely wrecks so many strategies because of all the answers it has. Yeah ill bridge YOU every turn, and take my +1/+1 counter. Or EE for 5 because of Chromatic Lantern. Blood moon who?
Only thing i could see is running either Atog or Gargadon in the side for an extra sac outlet
Hi I must be missing something about the Trawler/Ravager loop here. Are you saccing your 0 mana artifacts then saccing your 1+ mana artifacts to recur them? Or is there some continuous loop I'm missing here? I thought 0 mana artifacts can't recur themselves with Trawler.
