On my quest to find the perfect Shadow Rider list, I started here. This list was simple, streamlined – and ended up being way too slow. I would either miss Shadow Rider early, not have enough Energy on board or miss Shadow Rider VMAX on turn two. After hearing rumors of an Alcremie-less version, I decided to give it a spin to see if it could fix my problems. Here’s the second list I tried:

The rest of this list is very straightforward. You want to get a lot of Shadow Rider Calyrex V out, smack a ton of Energy on board and cruise to a win. Unfortunately, while this list felt better than the last one, I missed the hard-hitting Alcremie VMAX in most of my games. So, after a ton of refining, I settled on the following list:
