Guilds of Ravnica Brews, pt. 9 – Path of Mettle

Well, it pretty much writes itself, right?

[draft]Path of Mettle[/draft]

There’s quite a few options here.

[draft]Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice
Bounty Agent
Captain Lannery Storm
Charging Monstrosaur
Dire Fleet Daredevil
Fanatical Firebrand
Goblin Chainwhirler
History of Benalia
Knight of Grace
Kwende, Pride of Femeref
Lyra Dawnbringer
Militia Bugler
Relentless Raptor
Sunhome Stalwart
Swiftblade Vindicator
Tajic, Legion’s Edge[/draft]

I actually kind of hope [card]Captain Lannery Storm[/card] would be good, but I wouldn’t be so sure. Anyhow, this feels like a deck, where we should have an extremely low curve and have the option to sideboard into more midrange deck. [card]Metzali, Tower of Triumph[/card] serves both of these purposes pretty well. It can deal the final few points of damage in an aggressive deck and keep your opponent from attacking while you fly over their defenses with Lyra in a midrange deck. It can even destroy Hexproof creatures.

[deck]
[creatures]
4 Fanatical Firebrand
4 Swiftblade Vindicator
4 Relentless Raptor
4 Sunhome Stalwart
1 Dire Fleet Daredevil
3 Tajic, Legion’s Edge
4 Militia Bugler
3 Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice
[/creatures]
[spells]
3 Path of Mettle
4 Lightning Strike
4 Integrity // Intervention
[/spells]
[lands]
4 Clifftop Retreat
4 Sacred Foundry
7 Mountain
7 Plains
[/lands]
[/deck]

More one-drops wouldn’t hurt. Even something like [card]Rustwing Falcon[/card] seems pretty strong with all the Mentors in the deck. Falcon into Stalwart into Tajic feels like a pretty good curve.
