So Trevor and I have been tossing back ideas on a deck and we have a v1.0 ready. It is interesting because it is once again an Aggro Control type but it is three colors rather than my normal two.
We are calling it Angry Golgari.
Now you ask why we are calling it that. It is simple. We splashed red for no creatures we actually want on the field. Just things to act as a distraction and rile up an opponent. Just about everything in there that gets used is B/G, but the red is in there for a twist. Hopefully you will see why in the decklist!

So if you did figure it out the plan here is to use those one drop creatures mostly as cannon fodder. If I have to play a Slumbering Dragon, it isn’t the worst thing in the world because who wants to swing in and make a huge dragon for me if they aren’t going to kill me? Also, I can just eat it for the Aristocrat, then scavenge the 1 red for 3 more counters to put on either her or one of my other guys.
Not a bad plan in theory. It wasn’t too bad in practice last night either, although I didn’t do much. I decided to draft since so much of the deck right now is proxied out. In between matches though, I played a bit against people in the Constructed FNM and didn’t have a bad time, although I rarely got to finish a game before time was called. there tends to be a lot of talking when you don’t show up at FNM for a while.
I still need to do more testing and tweaking, so this is definitely a v1.0. Also trying to figure out my best sideboard options. I have a pile of cards in my head, but since we just finished narrowing down the Mainboard yesterday I didn’t have the time to get the rest straight.
If you want to test it out, feel free too and just let me know how it goes, what worked and what didn’t! If you have a suggestion leave it here too, or contact me on twitter!
