Huntmaster of the Fells // Ravager of the Fells
(LSV) Looks like the catwolf is outta the bag on this one. Thanks to Huntmaster, our team got to take spots 1 and 2 at the Pro Tour, something we had never done before. Huntmaster truly was the reason our ramp deck worked, since it singlehandedly solved many of the traditional problems that plagued ramp. It only costs four, so even if you have a ramp-light draw or get stuck on lands you can cast it at a reasonable pace, and it does a ton of work, especially if you are light on spells. Both halves are huge threats, and it forces counterspell decks to tap mana on their own turn, or risk being devoured alive by the Ravager of the Fells. Ramp is a deck I’ve never liked, but Huntmaster adds a whole new dimension, and that dimension was good enough to make us play it at the Pro Tour. We weren’t the only Huntmaster deck either, as another group was playing RG Beats with Huntmasters, which also seems quite legitimate. I expect to see plenty of hunting occurring over the next few months of Standard, and it wouldn’t be out of the question to see this as a 1-2 of in some Modern decks.
