Deck Overview:

Making Forest Great Again<

This is a more aggro variant of OTK Roach, which doesn't run wolf or even the neutral package. It focuses on dealing with the more aggro-centric threats presented by Ambush Sword and Carabosse Blood in the earlygame.

Most problems I had in the past with OTK Roach is how easily the hand can clog up. This list lets you have tempo plays without overdrawing, and also punishes misplays easily.

Why no Ancient Elf?
-less synergy with Wood of Brambles
-dependent on Fairy Circle/ May
-budget list

Why no Elf Twin's Assault?
-horrible on turn two
-horrible on turn three (if you go first)
-super inconsistent

Why no White Wolf?
-Too slow, playing it on an empty board is suicidal
-Can't deal with most top-ends like Albert (just kills you right?), Shadow's board states, Dragon's big things, or Aegis

Why Angelic Barrage?
-Carabosse Bats, Ambush sword and Shadow
-Face.

Why Pixie Mischief?
-Synergy with May, WoB and Roach
-Cheap removal

I'm always play-testing and tweaking my decks, so please comment if you have any ideas!
