  1. Dunno if this guy would help, because it looks like you're trying to be able to Bloodbraid Elf into a Vengevine, but Boartusk Liege would pump all your dudes.

    Also, Giantbaiting doesn't look like a bad idea, cause even if you cascade into it, you can conspire with your Birds, Cobras, Shamans, and even the Guides if you want to, all to make a bunch of big face-smashers.

    Hope it helps.

  2. Corbin: It's a cool play but since Ball lightning just dies to bolt even if you pump its toughness by 2 I don't see how you can actually win matches with it.

  3. Josh,

    I was browsing through the Magic-League Extended Trials last night for an article, and it looked to me like the choice between Bloodbraid Elf and Demigod of Revenge may be mutually exclusive. Is there something else that you can fit in Demigod's slot that plays better with BBE? Lightning Bolt perhaps?

    I definitely think some form of R/g Aggro deck exists in this format. Yours is the best commentary on Saito that I've seen so far on the 'Net, btw.


    1. If you wanted to cut Demigod (I'm assume this is because of mana issues, unless I'm missing something), Bolt or Figure are probably the way to go. Figure makes sure you never whiff on a cascade, but I think Bolt sures up the weaknesses of the deck better. As with most decks like this, the worst cards for us to see are blockers that don't have to chump, instant speed removal, and sweepers. Since we have Fauna/Vine, sweepers aren't as huge a concern, so I think Bolt probably addresses the weakness best out of the choices I can think of (although I might be missing something). It allows you to have some semblance of interaction while providing later game reach that more creatures simply can't give you.

  4. Fauna Shaman abuse might make Demigod worthy anyway if it's not your main plan, but with Fauna Shaman would Demigod or Vengevine be Plan A?

    And I wonder if fewer than 4 Demigods would work since you've got the Shamans. Cool deck 🙂
