Magic Origins: Review of Assemble Victory Intro Pack

Hello everybody! Today I’m going to review the Assemble Victory Intro Pack. This deck is an red/blue artifact centered deck. It relies on it’s one, two, and three drops to get onto the battlefield quickly, and many of the early creatures provide 1/1 Thopters, which will help you win from both air and ground quickly.

Rares

Chandra’s parents, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, is a 2/2 for 4 mana. When it enters, it brings along two 1/1 Thopters. It can also pay 3 and “sac” an artifact to deal 2 damage. In this deck there’ll be more than enough 1/1 Thopters to sacrifice. Mage-Ring Responder is a 7/7 for 7 mana  and it deals 7 damage to target creature when it attacks. The big downside is that it doesn’t untap unless you pay 7 mana, and you can’t really pay 7 mana to untap on a consistent basis.

Good Commons/Uncommons

Chief of the Foundry is 3 mana for a 2/3 artifact that gives other artifacts +1/+1, which is useful to make your Thopters 2/2s so that they can do more flying damage. Guardian Automaton is a 3/3 for 4 mana, and when it enters you gain 3 life. That’s great life gain, and it fits well with a lot of artifact synergy. Reclusive Artificer is a 2/3 with haste for 4 mana, making it an aggressive early attacker, but it also deals damage to target creature equal to the number of artifacts you control when it enters the battlefield. Great artifact synergy right there. Infectious Bloodlust is an aura that gives the enchanted creature +2/+1 and haste, but the enchanted creature must attack every turn. When the enchanted creature dies, you can search your deck for another Infectious Bloodlust and add it to your hand. If you have a playset of them in your deck, you can repeatedly power up creature after creature.

Cards You Should Add

Thopter Spy Network is an great rare that not only provides Thopters in the air, it also provides card draw whenever an artifact creatures deals damage to your opponent.

Most of the other cards I would add are already in here, I do have a few changes I would make. This deck is the improved version. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for viewing!
