Gunslinger: Aaron Forsythe

When a new set comes out, R&D will often bring decks to events to show off the potential of the new cards. These aren't our best FFL decks per se, but instead a glimpse into what the set has to offer. Often these decks are intentionally un-streamlined, both to keep opponents guessing and to make the deck more fun to play for 10 straight hours!

Aaron Forsythe played in the Champion Challenge at the Houston, TX Prerelease:

This deck left players with two impressions: one, Lotus Cobra was as sick as they imagined; and two, Allies were way sicker than they imagined. I was repeatedly producing Oran-Rief Survivalists that could trade with Woolly Thoctars and Umara Raptors that could attack past Baneslayer Angels, often while drawing tons of cards, making tons of Wolves, or wiping out people's hands. And Eldrazi Monument was just the haymaker I hoped it would be, winning several otherwise unwinnable games.
