No sideboard found.

The owner of this deck hasn't added a sideboard, they probably should...

Submit a list of cards below to bulk import them all into your sideboard. Post one card per line using a format like "4x Birds of Paradise" or "1 Blaze", you can even enter just the card name by itself like "Wrath of God" for single cards.

Deck Description

Basic Idea:
This deck, and others of this series, is intended for first-time players. To achive this I wanted to keep the deck extra simple so that the new player can focus on getting to know the rules, tactics and understanding what's going on. The other decks of this series can be found under: http://www.mtgvault.com/muktol/simple/
With this deck I wanted to use the strength of green creatures and combine it with some burn, haste and other typically support spells.

To keep this deck simple I decided to stay modern-legal even if this would only be played at the kitchen table. Lands are limited to Commons and Uncommon', no Rare's or Mythic's. Other cards are limited to Common's, Uncommon's and 1 Rare (max 4 times) per deck, no Mythic's.
Mass-strengthening-effects (+x/+x to all creatures) and too many spells with multiple effects should also be avoided.

The overall budget for the simple decks should be between 14 and 16$ (mid value).

Keywords in this deck you'll have to explain:
Discard, Haste, Trample, +1/+1 counter

At the moment this deck exists only on this site and has never been played against another deck. Regardless I'm open to all suggestions and ideas that may help to further improve this deck.

How to Play

This deck runs a rather aggressive strategy. With many removals and spells that will strengthen your creatures you will be able to let your creatures attack and survive quite often, or deal the last points of damage to your opponent.
Garruk's Companion combined with Giant Growth will get an impressive creature with trample while Brazen Scourge comes into play and is able to attack instantly which can be a surprise for your opponent.
Harmonize can draw you new cards, though you only want to play the later one if you have cards in your hand that you can't use at the moment, or any other cards at all.
