    Hi, Gene here. Thanks for posting the deck. I feel it can essentially be considered a variant of the 5c Humans archetype and should arguably be posted alongside that.
    This 75 was from the recent Adelaide Highlander Cup and contains a few changes from the Cancon and Melb GP lists, notably the Legendary Sorceries in the SB to combat a bigger presence of nonblue creature decks. Ultimately these decks beat up on me on the day. If you’re interested in piloting this deck, consider how many bigger creature decks you might face in your meta. We Can Be Heroes has relatively favourable Grixis and RUG Life match-ups, as well as most combo decks, but doesn’t fare so well against decks like Junk/Mardu Midrange or Big Red (GW and Yidris are move even). That said, the deck combines lightning speed with a wealth of grindy cards and hate, which has made it one of the best aggro decks in the format.
