    I'm sure a variation or two of this deck has shown up on the board, but I'd like to show you the deck I currently run in Type II Apprentice.

    2 Jayemdae Tome
    2 Pillage
    3 Grafted Skullcap
    3 Words of War
    4 Blistering Firecat
    4 Browbeat
    4 Firebolt
    4 Goblin Raider
    4 Grim Lavamancer
    4 Hell-Bent Raider
    4 Raging Goblin
    4 Sabretooth Tiger
    18 Mountain

    Originally, it had Relentless Assaults & Orcish Orriflames, but I soon realized I wasn't using them, and even with them, I was not winning creature battles because the spells were slowing my game up, so they were scrapped in favor of the Skullcap/Words combo. I still think it comes out too slow, might scrap the Tomes for more mountains.

    Sabretooth Tigers go all the way back to Ice Age. I remember using them for my Black/Red Soul Burn deck when it came out. They moved on into 5th Ed. & have been i nthe basic set ever since. I'm thinking of taking them out, too. I like them...hey, who doesn't like 2-power first strikers? But they're 2R, and I'm sure I can find more potent creatures for this deck for less. Might replace them with Mad Dogs or possibly Minotaur Explorer.

    I took out the tomes in favor of more mountains. If I need to draw cards, I have Browbeats. If the opponent takes the damage, that's fine, too. Usually I have Words of War & Grafted Skullcap, so he can choose to take either 5 or 6 damage :D Ah, Browbeat...Where were you during the Rath Cycle...

    3cc red creature that's nice to have around...

    Goblin sharpshooter...;)
