Amonkhet Spoilers! (in brief)

 

Aggro philosophy

  • Turn cards sideways every turn
  • Curve out
  • Minimal spell slots
    • Removal to get through
    • Card draw
    • Protection
    • Combat tricks
  • Often lower land count

 

Strategy:  

 

Why is blue normally bad at aggro?

  • Combat tricks are subpar
  • Blue is more reactive
  • Lack haste and power from creatures

 

How can blue be aggro?

 

  • Good at evasion/protection
  • Great card draw to keep the threats coming
  • Lock opponents boards for alpha strikes
