- 2 wild ricochet and +1 demigod and +1 stigma lasher.

Demigod needs to be a 4-of to be at potential, and stigma lasher really is your best friend for this deck. Wild ricochet requires you to hold mana open, and is also very dependant on what your oppanant plays.

Stigma Lasher is actually extremely subpar. The deck just sort of needs a 2 drop to fill the slot since Blood Knight rotated out. If you have any idea how the deck plays, it generally feels bad to ever have a Stigma Lasher. It is a bad creature, it doesn't fit with a first turn Figure of Destiny, and it's just all around not good.

Tonya; Shut up. Stigma lasher is a unremovable everlasting torment if it hits. Almost all T2 decks contain life-gain these days, getting stigma lasher to hit makes life soo much easier.

I don't know enough about conflux to make those sorts of statements, I'll just wait and see what happens.

First off, I can say whatever the hell I feel like saying douche. Second, you're 100% wrong. The only reason it is in the deck is to fill the gap that Blood Knight left. It is not a good card, and rarely will it ever be effective. Trust me, as soon as anything remotely better comes around it will be replaced.

Yes Stigma Lasher is currently the best 2cc drop in mono red aggro.

And yes it is not a very good card by today's standard.

3 years ago, any magic player would cut off a finger for one, though. It is a bit sad, this power creep problem...
