War of the Spark Brews, pt. 1 – Mardu Aristocrats

There was already [scryfall]Cruel Celebrant[/scryfall], but [scryfall]God-Eternal Bontu[/scryfall] might very well push this over the top.

The basis for this deck already existed.

4 Gutterbones
4 Hunted Witness
4 Grim Initiate
4 Cruel Celebrant
4 Priest of Forgotten Gods
4 Legion Warboss
4 Judith, the Scourge Diva
4 God-Eternal Bontu
4 Heroic Reinforcements
4 Blood Crypt
4 Sacred Foundry
4 Godless Shrine
4 Dragonskull Summit
4 Isolated Chapel
4 Clifftop Retreat

There’s even more options, like [scryfall]Reassembling Skeleton[/scryfall], but I don’t think we want to use the mana on a 1/1. Maybe, though.

The mana is pretty good, but painful. Also, sometimes you’ll just sit there playing tapped lands. Still, it’s hard to do much about that, since you basically need the turn 1 of any mana, which is sadly not going to happen as often as one would like.

You could lose a few red sources, if you also gave up the [scryfall]Grim Initiate[/scryfall], so that’s something one should think about.
