R/G Aggro

It's just your average aggro deck. It's designed to come out of the gate fast and keep the pressure up throughout. I need help with the sideboard, though.


I would have killed, literally ended someones life, to NOT have Arrogant Bloodlord riding a giant ant... Good times:

but where DID the other fork come from?

Lord_Zed: I was at my friends house when this happened. He's married and his wife was an excellent baker. She had baked a homemade apple pie the night before. I was hungry, and my friend convinced me to try those low carb monster drinks. Before this day, I had never triend energy drinks before. Boy was I in for a treat. When I tried that first monster, I really enjoyed the flavor, but the taste that it left in my mouth wasn't so good. What was my solution? Drink another! before I could finish drinking that 2nd monster, I felt it already kicking in(these drinks were not very far apart, we're talking minutes here) my friend decided that it was a good idea to whip out that fresh pie his wife made the night before. I didn't know what to do, since I felt incredibly invigorated, and at the same time, freaked out by the rush I was feeling, but I was also hungry, and my friend have me an entire plate with a fork and said "help yourself." He extended his saucer to me, and I cut him a piece of the pie and handed it to him, then I looked at the pie, noticed that the pie was in an aluminum holder, and dumped the entire pie onto my plate and started eating it with 2 forks. I don't know where I found that other fork, it probably came from my friend. Anyhow, his wife wasn't happy, and I was already in magical christmas land. 2 days later, I was in my friends bed and I slept for 14 hours. His wife outlawed my from having any of her baked goods for a while(which sucked because I could just show up at there house, steal some sweets, and leave) and said I couldn't have any energy drinks at her house, unless under close watch. My friend, on the other hand, had to take me out to a steak dinner, because apparently I won a bet where I climbed a tree and didn't die.

Kird Ape?
I'd argue that Bloodbraid Elf is better then Rumbling Slum. 
Stormblood Berserker seems strictly better then Scab-Clan Mauler
Goyf
Grim Lavamancer

Yeah, BBE is a must for this deck.
Agreed on the BBE. I can't afford the Goyfs, but I DO have the Lavamancers. What should I cut for them?

As for Kird Ape, it would require me to run too many basics for my personal taste. As for Berserker and Brawler, I just personally like Trample over combat tricks, but I will switch them out if people are running tougher creatures than I expect.

I ran a RG list that did quite well in a recent extended PTQ (this was when scapeshift and faeries were the two main decks, which explains most of the cards in the sideboard) you could use something like this list as the basis for a modern deck:

4 Goblin Guide
4 Figure of Destiny
3 Hellspark Elemental
3 Boggart Ram-Gang
2 Hell's Thunder
4 Bloodbraid Elf
2 Hero of Oxid Ridge

4 Lightning Bolt
4 Flame Javelin
2 Burst Lightning
2 Flame Slash

2 Koth of the Hammer

4 Fire-lit Thicket
4 Raging Ravine
4 Rootbound Crag
2 Copperline Gorge
9 Mountain
1 Forest

Sideboard:
3 Volcanic Fallout
2 Guttural Response
2 Deglamer
2 Great Sable Stag
2 Demigod of Revenge
3 Smash to Smitherines
1 Koth of the Hammer

Bloodbraid is amazing in a deck like this where just about everything has haste.

If I was running a red green list in modern I'd say BBE is a must include, if you can borrow them off someone or whatever tarmogoyf needs to be in the deck, I think flame javelin is better then char, raging ravine also should get a look in if you can work the mana base (more then 4 tap lands probably not a good idea though). Burning tree shaman seems a bit slow to me.

Keep in mind the deck is going to be running worse creatures then zoo and worse removal so I'd try to concentrate on making it faster and stick to a lot of the haste guys but you can try going another route if you like.

Keep in mind that Grove of the Burnwillows + Punishing Fire is in color as well.
