Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
We promised last week (in the first installement of 'Rocking Rancor') that we would pick up on a Green / White Infect deck featuring the new M13 aura all-star Rancor. Like the M12 rare enchantment, Angelic Destiny, this aura pops back into your hand should your enchanted critter get pwn'd. Unlike Angelic Destiny, Rancor is significantly cheaper and provides a highly sought-after ability in today's meta-game - trample. With token decks still enjoying popularity, there are chump blockers everywhere. Even with some of those beffy green indestructible cretures, having a bunch of -1/-1 counters pile up after a block seems decent.
Anywhoos - we had read Mike Flores's Proposed Green-White Infect Deck last month with some interest as we had already physically laid out pretty much the same deck on the game table. We money to invest in a deckset of Inkmoth, so our build was a titch weaker than Mike's. Righto - let's have a looky-loo . . .
We are also carefully considering a sideboard for this and have a lot of choices which will likely solidify into a proper list after a bunch of games.
We really never had a chance to play with Glissa, the Traitor and now we are contemplating a nice casual green black infect list with Glissa and Rancor but have yet to get anything together yet which plays smoothly.
We've recently been shopping over at MTG Mint Card for the odd M13 card we've not yet picked up as well as indulging in a bit of nostaligia with the older Ravnica cards (brought on no doubt by this fall's Return to Ravnica set). Check 'em out.
