    RB Aggro or RB Neeman’s as it is sometimes called was first played and built by ‘The’ Jeremy Neeman to a 3rd place finish (out of an unknown number greater than 32) at the 2014 Highlander Masters event in Dandenong Australia. Jeremy built the deck the night before the event from his friend’s cube. Since then, the deck has remained among the top tier aggro decks of the format and is widely considered to be underplayed given its power and options for budget builds that sacrifice very little in the way of overall quality. Experienced pilots include (Discord usernames): Dillion Kikkawa (Yuki), Jacob Dunn (The Editor), Izzy Sutherland (?).

    This deck first appeared at 2014 Masters top 8 in the hands of Jeremy Neeman. It was later popularised by Dillion Kikkawa.

    This thread is eagerly awaiting a willing and able aficionado of this archetype to champion the cause and write a Primer or record a deck tech. Message me (Sarven McLinton) if you are that hero!

    For now, here is a typical decklist for your brewing pleasure:

    *While this list has a Mox Jet in it, it could be considered budget if you replace the Mox with a Dark Ritual or a Lotus Petal.
