Standard RB Sacrifice by Andrew Cuneo
Today’s deck, Standard RB Sacrifice, is the most unique deck from the past MPL League Weekend in the Standard portion, brought to you by Andrew Cuneo.
It’s a Red/Black Sacrifice deck that uses learn as well as cheap creatures and sacrifice outlets to go wide and hopefully finish the opponent off with Bastion of Remembrance. I’ve always really liked Extus, Oriq Overlord, and this deck seeks to make good use of him.
Awaken the Blood Avatar is a great combo with cards like Woe Strider and Forbidden Friendship that give two tokens, allowing Awaken the Blood Avatar to be cast as early as the fourth turn (potentially even turn three with a one drop into Forbidden Friendship). A 3/6 haste that does three damage when attacking kills very quickly and, against decks like Red or Gruul, can be very hard to remove.
If you’re looking for something that’s maybe not as popular as other decks to try out and be competitive, this is a strong deck that’s worth playing.
