Looking for input on Menace Tribal
« on: May 23, 2020, 04:42:42 pm »
I have been play testing these two decks on MTGA.  Both seem equally successful - and 65% win rates in standard.  The Rakdos version took me from Gold to Platinum quickly but advancement stalled when I started hitting nothing but yorion decks

Rakdos Menace Tribal: https://deckstats.net/decks/147999/1647040-rakdos-menace-tribal
and
Mardu Menace Tribal: https://deckstats.net/decks/147999/1648203-mardu-menace-tribal/en

These decks play out very quickly.  If you are on curve, you are unblockable from the get go and get a one-sided board wipe at turn 4.  With the Mardu version you can surprise the opponent and just win with Chance For Glory.

Anyone have some input on the following?
1. what changes can I make to be more competitive vs. meta decks?
2. what would you put in the sideboard to be successful in Bo3?

I play Bant Yorion Control, and I'm not really sure you can stay with the menace theme and still win. I gain life with Uro, card advantage with basically everything from Omens to Cavalier of Thorns to Teferi, and I control the board with Agent of Treachery, Teferi, Shatter the Sky, and Elspeth Conquers Death.

Yorion control is just really, really powerful. The only times I lose are when I get out-controlled or when an aggro deck gets a perfect hand. So, I'd suggest trying to make this more threatening more quickly. Maybe if you could work this into an Obosh deck for more explosive games?

That's a fair point.  Yorion is hard (at best) unless you come out swinging.  Giving up the labyrinth raptor and stormfist crusader to use Obosh the companion is a no go, so I will have to look at Obosh as a non-companion card.
