RG Aggro at the World Magic Cup

Shuhei Nakamura is a member of the Pro Tour Hall of Fame, former Player of the Year, and is one of just six players with more than 400 lifetime pro points.

I would like to introduce another deck from the World Magic Cup.

Today's deck is the RG Aggro piloted by Thiago Saporito from Team Brazil.

I recall discussing red-green as variation to the green decks, with a relatively slow game plan. However, Thiago's red-green is nothing like this—100% aggression; no heed to tempo loss because you are always trying to be fastest.

This build has no intention of defending. You could compare it to Brian Kibler's Temur without the blue—to minimize mana problems and early board development. The whole idea is to push further and further forward.

Personally, I was impressed the deck did not contain Goblin Rabblemaster. This was not because of the restriction rule of four cards per team. Team Brazil chose not to use a single Rabblemaster.

As I touched on in my article on Sam's deck, the opportunity to utilize Rabblemaster is decreasing. It seems the trend now is to remove it altogether. I agree with this movement.

However, Savage Punch—or "bear punch"—is too much. Simply going for Lightning Strike would have been much better.
