Amonkhet Brews, pt. 1 – BR Madness

I’m back having completely missed Aether Revolt. Just couldn’t bring myself to brew than. However, now I do have some ideas. During Kaladesh I did less than usual. The whole block just didn’t feel fun for me. I guess I could sort of see where Standard was going or something.

Let’s start with two cards I’ve already found very interesting.

As you can see, they work together. Using them both might require quite a bit of mana, but hopefully we’ll get there. Here’s some more Madness.

[draft]Fiery Temper
Gisa’s Bidding
Bloodhall Priest
Stromkirk Occultist
Voldaren Pariah
Avacyn’s Judgment
From Under the Floorboards[/draft]

And some more outlets:

[draft]Chandra, Flamecaller
Cathartic Reunion
Collective Brutality
Collective Defiance
Cryptbreaker
Haunted Dead
Lightning Axe
Midnight Oil
Olivia, Mobilized for War
Shreds of Sanity
Sinister Concoction
Tormenting Voice[/draft]

I guess there’s quite a few ways to go here.

Of course, in the current meta, you’ll need plenty of removal.

[draft]Grasp of Darkness
Unlicensed Disintegration
Fatal Push
Ruinous Path[/draft]

We do need some card draw or recursive benefits, so why not use a few planeswalkers.

[draft]Ob Nixilis Reignited
Chandra, Torch of Defiance
Liliana, the Last Hope[/draft]

We’ll have a new Liliana soon enough, but lets go with this one for now.

So, maybe something like this:

[deck]
[creatures]
3 Hazoret the Fervent
4 Archfiend of Ifnir
4 Haunted Dead
4 Stromkirk Occultist
[/creatures]
[spells]
4 Fiery Temper
4 Lightning Axe
2 Collective Defiance
4 Cathartic Reunion
1 Ob Nixilis Reignited
2 Chandra, Torch of Defiance
2 Midnight Oil
[/spells]
[lands]
4 Foreboding Ruins
4 Smoldering Marsh
4 Canyon Slough
7 Swamp
7 Mountain
[/lands]
[/deck]

With five five-drops and seven four-drops, the curve is quite horrible, but gladly the demon can be cycled and others can be ditched to various outlets, if needed. Of course, there’s some ways to save on mana with Madness as well. Still, let’s call this a first draft. Okay?
