So I was playing around with making a Plains Devotion deck and trying to figure out how I could make it better. One of the big things I run into is while Ajani’s Pridemate can become massive, but rarely a big worry to actually attack, as it’s just difficult to get a creature without flying or trample to do damage to a player in many situations. So… this is the solution I came up with:
It turns out… adding Embercleave and Fling to an otherwise plains devotion deck is pretty fun!
I am not going to pretend this is a good deck by any means, and I’m only playing it in standard bo1, but, if I can get the embercleave out, most of the time I’ve either won the game, the other player concedes, or - at the very least - I get a “Nice!” emote out of the other player. I’m really liking this deck even it it started as a joke.
