Revenge of the Slith

The play on words for this deck was just irresistible.
8 Mountain
4 Sacred Foundry
8 Plains
2 Battlefield Forge

2 Disintegrate
1 Fireball

4 Kami of False Hope
2 Arcbound Slith
4 Slith Firewalker
4 Slith Ascendant
3 Accorder Paladin
3 Falkenrath Marauders

3 Double Cleave
4 Intimidation Bolt

4 Bedlam
4 Curse of Stalked Prey
As with many of my decks, here's what happens when I take a card and decide to extend its idea into stupidity. Adding in Intimidation Bolt and Kami of False Hope to prevent my opponent from attacking, leaving me to swing for the fences are great options, though more might be wise..

However, Falkenrath Marauders, as in theme as they are, cost five and this deck only has twenty-two lands. This is an aggressive deck that wants to drop Bedlam as a bomb and win. Which is a weird idea but it is, nonetheless, what the deck wants to do. So the Marauders need to be replaced with something else and luckily for me, R/W aggro has been a supported archetype for almost five years now. Solid replacements exist and upgrading some technology in this deck is definitely overdue...but I have to keep the Sliths in. That's the whole point of the deck!
