  • Description

    (LSV) Aristocrat gives a huge boost to any RB aggressive deck, and might be enough incentive to help create one, since the current Standard format is a sea of UW tempo decks. As a finisher against control, the Aristocrat does a good job, and is a really fast clock. Day of Judgment is looking worse and worse these days, what with Moorland Haunt, undying creatures, Thrun, and stuff like this.

    On the other hand, she doesn’t shine against an army of 1/1 fliers, though if human sacrifices are found, that is less of an issue. I could still see her ending games quickly enough in creature mirrors, but Olivia Voldaren is going to just be better there anyway.

    Speaking of Olivia, she is going to be one of the natural competitors for the four-drop spot in a black-red deck, and the only thing holding her back is how slow she is to kill a control deck. I’d much rather be bashing with Aristocrat than playing Olivia, saying go, then getting in for a measly three the following turn. As long as the food is plentiful, the Aristocrat is sticking around.
