A Titanic Farewell

Posted in Feature on September 28, 2012

Over the past two years, we have seen ramp decks do just about everything. First came Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, to set the stage for us and pave the long road ahead for ramp decks. Eldrazi Green was a neat one somewhere along the way as well. With Innistrad, Kessig Wolf Run breathed new life into an archetype that seemed like it would die without Valakut hanging around to wreak a little more havoc.

Kessig Wolf Run

Since the archetype shifted to one dominated by Kessig Wolf Run, we have seen all varieties of the deck. Red-green is the most common variation, but we have seen everything from RUG to Bant Ramp decks take their rightful spot in the metagame. It has been a while since we have seen anything resembling a Jund mana base do well. A few sets later, though, and Bob McAllister is willing to show us what that might look like.

The deck has every variety of Titan available to it, which is always fun. To round out the fatty department, we see Thragtusk, which is primarily a Green Sun's Zenith target as well as a pair of Thundermaw Hellkites. The Dragon has not really had time to shine as of yet, so this is an interesting place to see him showing up. If creatures aren't your thing yet you still want to win, the deck has access to both Bonfire of the Damned and Devil's Play, allowing it to take your opponent from 20 to 0 at record pace. Primeval Titan, we bid you farewell!
