This is pretty pure, as ideas go-which is: Run Them DOWN. And it's why I chose this particular name. The deck itself is modeled after the Stompy decks of yore, when men were men, green sucked ass, and the only way to beat blue was to be faster than anyone. It worked for about a week and now Stompy decks live on mostly in the minds of people like me, who've been playing for a long time and have cards to support this kind of weird aggro deck that, for the most part, has been shifted to White, philosophically.

The Mindstorm Crown is a weird addition but I put it in there to help me recover after dumping my hand and then having the army wiped out. However, the card is expensive an just isn't in the theme for the deck, which is to Run Them DOWN. So let's axe that. Since it's been a long time since this deck had any help now is a great time to revise this deck a little, because of the awesomeness that is Strangleroot Geist.
