Red/Green Monsters

R-G Monsters2

Hey guy, Richie here again with another new deck for you.

This one is a new build that really came out of a gimmick idea from the All Rare Draft that we had a couple weeks ago. I drafted a Dictate of the Twin Gods during the draft and found it to be useful. The flash ability of it really allows us to deal some nice additional damage. Just have to make sure to play it at the right time or it can come back and bite you hard in the end. Since I had been wanting to create a red/green monster deck to utilize Xenagos, the Reveler I decided to incorporate it into my deck.

 

Red/Green Monster

Creatures (18)
Courser of Kruphix
Dragon-Style Twins
Heir of the Wilds
Nylea, God of the Hunt
Polukranos, World Eater
Stormbreath Dragon
Sylvan Caryatid

Spells (13)
Become Immense
Lightning Strike
Magma Jet
Stoke the Flames

Planeswalker (5)
Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker
Xenagos, the Reveler

Enchantment (3)
Bow of Nylea
Dictate of the Twin Gods

Land (22)
Forest
Mountain
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
Rugged Highlands
Temple of Abandon
Wooded Foothills

Sideboard (16)
Anger of the Gods
Back to Nature
Circle of Flame
Mistcutter Hydra
Reclamation Sage
Roar of Challenge

 

After building and testing I came up with this build. The deck is a standard red green monsters with familiar faces of Stormbreath Dragon and Polukranos, World Eater and adds some new faces including Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker. The deck utilizes burn and blockers early on to deal with quick decks. The addition of Heir of the Wilds can really stop even their biggest creature thanks to Deathtouch.

Playing Dictate of the Twins will really hurt and give an instant win when done against no blockers. The biggest and most catching off guard part of this deck is Become Immense. This card is so much fun to play. No one ever expects it. It is especially lethal when combined with Dictate of the Twin Gods. Casting these while attacking with Stormbreath Dragon or Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker just turned 4 damage into 20 damage. All at instant speed. Very fun and out of nowhere.

Well there you have it folks. Another really fun deck to play that can go toe-to-toe with any other deck out there.

Sound off in the comments with your thoughts and we will see you next time!

    I still feel like this deck deserves 2 Roar of Challenge…
