My first iteration of Rafiq of the Many was very aggressive. It included a large number of creatures that would pump and protect Rafiq, allowing him to eliminate an opponent in one swing. Unfortunately, creature control is the main vulnerability of Rafiq, and committing more creatures to the board made that weakness even more of a handicap. With each pass, more of the creatures were cut for card advantage and board control of my own. Now the deck plays much more like a control deck, though Rafiq can and still does end games at a moment's notice.
