Jun 10, 2019Hey, thanks for the inputs WarMachine! Will definitely be testing them out. I just made this deck on the fly so I haven't really searched and researched some of the better cards to use. I agree with you on Lead, upping the count even by one seems super optimal. I won't be cutting Horned Kavu, though. He's essentially an Invasive Species but comes down a turn earlier (RG mana cost) and has an additional point of toughness. Imagine a turn 2 of BTE, BTE, Horned Kavu (returning an Arboreal Grazer/Young Wolf/Skyshroud Ridgeback). That's two 2/2s and a 3/4 on turn two! Yikes!Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant
Jun 10, 2019I know, I know. "Another aggro Gruul list". But hear me out. I've been goldfishing this deck and Arboreal Grazer with Burning-Tree Emissary has been explosive as hell. Some of the better turn twos I've been having include:Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant
Turn 1: Forest, cast Arboreal Grazer, Gruul Turf, return Forest, pass.
Turn 2: Forest, Burning-Tree Emissary, Burning-Tree Emissary, Keldon Marauders, Rancor on Arboreal Grazer, attack (that's a 3/3 on turn 2!).
Turn 1: Forest, cast Arboreal Grazer, Crumbling Vestige, cast Arboreal Grazer, Gruul Turf, return Crumbling Vestige, pass.
Turn 2: 4 mana on turn 2! Do whatever you desire. Lol.
Here's the list:
Gruul Aggro BounceMagic OnlineOCTGN2ApprenticeBuy These Cards Creature (31)
4 Arboreal Grazer
4 Skyshroud Ridgeback
4 Burning-Tree Emissary
4 Horned Kavu
4 Keldon Marauders
4 Viashino Pyromancer
3 Orcish Hellraiser
1 Invasive Species
2 Lead the Stampede
3 Elephant Guide
4 Gruul Turf
3 Crumbling Vestige
I haven't tinkered with the sideboard yet, but the usual culprits include the enters-the-battlefield creatures from Red and Green. Blastoderm serves as the curve topper and the "weakest" spots are the four Viashino Pyromancers and the three Orcish Hellraisers.
Thoughts on better replacements?

Moonblade Shinobi is definitely in. I don't know about the other two, though. A straight up mono U Faerie/Ninja seems more consistent.

Check the card again. The lands need to be UNTAPPED not tapped to get the bonus counters. Plus if you have ZERO lands it means you have no lands tapped as well. You could play this versus land destruction and still get a 5/4 creature out if you had the weenies on the battlefield to satisfy Convoke.
Crap. How can I miss that. Thanks!
Apr 24, 2019Is this the BR Asylum thread? Which is the latest version?Posted in: Developing
edit: Any particular reason for the Monstrous Carabids over Horror of the Broken Lands (aside from the easier to cycle hybrid cost)? Horror has the incidental +2/+1 ability, which is easily achievable with what the deck is doing, making him a bigger threat late game.
Mar 12, 2019Updated to current list above. The deck plays like Stompy in the initial stages of the game (turn 1 Young Wolf. turn 2 attack with Wolf, play Skarrgan Pit-Skulk. turn 3, Rancor), but can grind it out with massive 3/4s and 4/5s in the mid game.Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant
Mar 12, 2019Nice report man! We're seeing results mainly from online events, and maybe that's why some content creators are pushing for a ban on Gush (blue decks) and the Monarch mechanic (Boros and Orzhov, to some extent) because, really, you see these decks regularly online. But in paper pauper, we see a lot of variety. So thanks again! Continue with the reports, please.Posted in: MTGO Pauper
