              sms Hey, listen!arrow_drop_down Do you see that button over there?arrow_drop_down If you click on it, it will show you all sorts of advanced info and charts for this deck!arrow_drop_down Try it!arrow_drop_down Oh, where are my manners? My name is Liv, nice to meet you.arrow_drop_down Affinity is a very aggressive deck, but maybe seeing it as "aggro" isn't the best approach.arrow_drop_down Some would argue that Affinity is more like a combo deck.arrow_drop_down Despite first impressions that piloting Affinity doesn't require a brain...arrow_drop_down And that you just drop everything you have and A+move...arrow_drop_down (kek)arrow_drop_down In reality, Affinity is quite a complex archetype.arrow_drop_down To pilot it well, you'll need plenty of practise!arrow_drop_down Winning quick matches when you pull a perfect hand is easy...arrow_drop_down But you'll often find yourself having to take tough decisions and grinding games.arrow_drop_down Affinity is fast, but the whole Modern format is adapted to being fast.arrow_drop_down So, don't be scared if your first few games feel off with Affinity.arrow_drop_down Keep at it, and you'll soon get a good feeling for the interactions within this unusual "combo" deck.arrow_drop_down Steel Overseer is often considered a high-priority target by the opponents.arrow_drop_down And sure, if left alone, Affinity's army of nonsense Ornithopter can become unstopable.arrow_drop_down However, the truth is that, when playing the deck, you don't value Steel Overseer that much. It's a slow card, and gotta go fast.arrow_drop_down You'll often be using it as removal-bait for a more important piece of your puzzle.arrow_drop_down Cranial Plating is, of course, the star of the deck.arrow_drop_down And as such, it is a big target...arrow_drop_down Be sure to side in Welding Jars and Spell Pierces in order to keep them alive in post-sideboard matches.arrow_drop_down Ghirapur Aether Grid is a secret weapon.arrow_drop_down It won't be good in every matchup, but in those where they shine, it will make you giggle under your breath as you activate its ability.arrow_drop_down Don't forget, Etched Champion having protection against all colours means it cannot be blocked, except by Eldrazi, other Artifacts, etc.arrow_drop_down A well equipped Etched Champion can take games incredibly quickly!arrow_drop_down Click the menu for more details.
