RUG Tempo – “RUG Life”
September 4, 2018 at 6:58 am #1018
RUG Life is the deck developed by Sarven McLinton in mid 2018 to prey on the SA meta at the time (largely control vs. aggro). RUG Life went undefeated in the Swiss of the Adelaide Eternal Highlander Challenge (see event results for meta), with Sarv piloting it to 1st place. The video deck tech is below, and the list would suit anyone who enjoys tempo strategies, burn strategies, 2-drop green creatures like Goyf (and an honorary member of the club, Hooting Mandrills), and soft permission. The engine of the deck revolves around Spellseeker fetching both Time Walk and Ancestral Recall, and Regrowth or JVP allowing you to cast your 7 points both consistently and also multiple times per game. That being said, most of your games can be ended quite swiftly off Price of Progress, and you will often find yourself Seeking out PoP, or flashing it back for 6-12 damage per go.
This deck tech is the video primer, and a list is included below:
