Clever Combo

Jul 1, 2019

It’s time for the ultimate tie-breaker, Sudden Death!

This week JJ put together an alternative take on Aristocrats, with explosive possibilities. The key revolves around triggers from Cruel Celebrant, Poison-Tip Archer, and Rising Populace.

If sac’ing for value is your preference, you’d how about Demon of Catastrophes, or God-Eternal Bontu. You can throw a Doomed Dissenter or a Hunted Witness their way and turn the downside into an extra body.

Last but not least, all these triggers combo ever so nicely with a visit from Massacre Girl, who likes to clear the board and swing you 5-10 life on the reg. Stack the triggers right and you might just end up with a couple of tokens left over.
