Posted By: frogger42I think cheating your U and B requs is usually the best aggro plan. GRW zoo is purdy consistent and absolutely devastating, and cutting 2 colors helps your manabase out a ton. (No more janky Joiner Adept!) This deck doesn't need to blow out w/Contracts, dropping 1-2 dudes a turn will do that easily enough, just make sure your manabase allows you to do that.
If you absolutely 'need' the 5 colors, Trinket Mage + Stoneforge Mystic -> Skullclamp. I haven't heard of half the U beats here, power creep over the last 5 years should give you a ton more contenders than these guys.
Posted By: frogger42Where's Goyf? Even Knight of the Reliquary does some good work for you. Check out Legacy Zoo lists, Loam Lion and Goblin Guide should be here too (you'll figure out Guide doesn't actually have a drawback) and Green Sun's Zenith is posb here, as +1 mana gets all your serious beaters when you need them.
Posted By: frogger42Also: Chain Lightning, Fireblast, max out on all the quality(ish) burn you can, reach is a demon to control. Char and Psi Blast are too slow when it comes to burn. There's the new awful Incinerate in M13, and even Thunderbolt seems better than some of this stuff.
Posted By: frogger42And drop all the 'sac a land' spells, makes you up your land count and mess with your consistency when it comes to playing money spells. Better off with a 2/1 for W than a boltable Elephant that 2-for-1s you right away + shrinks your Nacatls. No need to give your opponent a free Wasteland (or Time Walk) if you can help it, you're soft enough to it.
Where's arma-mutha-geddon? Get that shit in there.
Posted By: frogger42However, you're adding black and most of those slots are worse beaters than in your other colors (Jungle Lion? there's other jank to scrounge up yet). Unless this color's really bonkers, and 8 slots out of 300 isn't enough, just cheat it.
Posted By: frogger42Dip's totally right on the echo'ers here. I am super-happy to see you tempo yourself on a 2-mana 2/2 (I think they call that a Grizzly Bear) esp when I have a bolt. Your threats have to come out as fast and consistently as they can, and it may seem minor, but in actuality echo really f-s that up for you.
Posted By: frogger42Clamp is how you win. Not dudes. Clamp. It's brutal.
Posted By: frogger42Geddon + Red Geddon + Blood Moon and Dude Moon are fine here, too. It's not overkill, it's "let's start the game over again, except you're at 8." Or "gee, you need how many more lands for WoG?" Much easier to run when you cut down to 3 colors, hint hint..
Posted By: frogger42And Aether Vial. No reason not to, it's a great way to flash out a dude and not over extend into the WoG/ Firespout. I don't think it's worth going up to CMC 3 with this deck (which helps Vial), except maybe for KotR. Who also rocks with Geddons.
Posted By: frogger42Wow. I had NO IDEA that Rish Airship and Goblin Cohort were really that bad.
Wait, no geddon and no clamp? I'm with dips here.
Posted By: Illusions-GoAlso now want something like Hearth Kami because sometimes a guy just needs to Shatter things.
Posted By: frogger42Skyshroud Ridgeback should do it fer ya. Even Skyshroud Behemoth is a beating.
